BA- Macalester College, St. Paul, MN (Physics)
University of Chapel Hill-Chapel Hill (Graduate Coursework)
I've been in education for 12 years now, having taught all age groups. I wanted to become a teacher because I struggled a lot with ADHD in high school and college, but finally managed to focus it into productive studying and by the time I was in grad school I wanted to help other students, regardless of whatever causes them difficulty.
I have a teaching certification in Maryland in Physics and Math, an pending certification in NY for Physics and Math, and an expired NC certification in general science and math.
I'll do whatever it takes! Math games, math computer games, personalized videos, whatever works for the student! I'm a physics major, so I'm sold with Differential Equations and just about anything. who has taught AP level computer science and Calculus and lots of Algebra.
On the general science teaching exam I scored in the 99th percentile! (I got some really easy ones wrong too.... my mind blanked about the definition of pH).
I've taught every science, and in my family there is a Biology professor, a Physics Professor, a Chemistry Professor, and a Computer Science professor.
Don't hesitate to contact me! One compliment I got after helping a student a lot outside of school (which helped her get into MIT), said I was a better Mentor than anyone she had at MIT. I also have an HTC Vive VR thing and I'm sure I can find or develop some educational reason for playing with! I've been in education for 12 years now, having taught all age groups.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have a degree in Physics and over 20 credit hours in mathematics. Additionally, I have 10 years experience teaching secondary math and science. I scored a 32 on the ACT Math when I was in high school, but I have learned a tremendous amount about testing prep since then.
I started programming in 1997.
I have worked for WebAssign, and educational software developer.
I have taught computer science to middle and high school students for several years.
I am familiar with about 10 languages, with OO, functional, and imperative programming, with an emphasis on algorithm design and design patterns.
I have also done robotics, and led teams to state championships!
I have a Bachelors in Physics from Macalester College and published research in American Physics Letters. I studies Science Education at UNC Chapel Hill, have taught physics for 10 years in several different states. I hold certifications to teach physics in NC, MD, and NY.
