About Kris

I have been a physics instructor since 1988. I have experience teaching high school regular physics, honors physics, IB Physics(all levels), AP physics (B & C) and astronomy. I also taught general science in 6th, 7th and 8th grade. Currently I am teaching at Bellevue College and Edmunds Community College. I have taught both physics for engineering (221) and physics for non-physics majors (114,115,116).

I have also led education workshops for physics teachers both nationally and internationally.
As a tutor, I have enjoyed working one-on-one with students and teaching them problem solving strategies. One of the most difficult parts in working physics problems is filtering out what information has been provided and what solution is requested. I work with students to improve those problem solving skills. I have the ability to help students break down problems into workable components. Content is, of course, very important. Problem solving techniques, however, can be used in other subject areas besides physics.

Physics- all levels, Astronomy, Physical Science, Geology

My teaching schedule varies depending on the quarter. I have quite a collection of physics textbooks and workbooks from which I can pull problems, reviews, and practice tests. I am very flexible and can meet you anywhere in the greater Seattle area including (but not limited to) Kent, Bellevue, Issaquah, Woodinville, Bothell, Mill Creek, Lynnwood, Edmunds and most surrounding areas. If needed, I can also use Skype and other videochat programs.

Approved subjects

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.
