About Kris

I have been a physics instructor since 1988. I have experience teaching high school regular physics, honors physics, Regents Physics, IB Physics(all levels), AP physics (B & C) and astronomy. I also taught general science in 6th, 7th and 8th grade. I was a college instructor at Bellevue College and Edmunds Community College in Seattle until July 2016 and taught both physics for engineering (221) and physics for non-physics majors (114,115,116). In addition, I am an MCAT Physics Instructor for the Princeton Review.

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 however I am generally available afternoons and weekends. I have quite a collection of physics, astronomy and geology 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 Buffalo area. If needed, I can also use Skype and other videochat programs.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Astronomy

I developed a complete astronomy course for a school district in Texas and taught the course. I have also been a planetarium educator at a major museum in Dallas. My background is specifically physics, astronomy and geology.

Geology

My undergraduate degree was in Geology. My masters degree focused on both physics and geology (specifically paleontology). I have participated in geological digs in West Texas and some of our finds are currently on display at the Dallas Museum of Natural History.

Physics

I have over 26 years experience teaching physics at all levels.
