About Brittany

Throughout my college experience, I worked through a college office to tutor my peers. I gained a great amount of satisfaction from this, and it actually caused me to change my career goals. Instead of looking into research, I decided I wanted to become a teacher.

In my history, I always treat students on a case by case basis. If a certain explanation does not make sense, I try a different tactic, until something catches. Different students learn in different ways, and finding the correct way is the biggest step in helping a student. I have often found that because teachers work with so many students at a time, they can only have time to teach in one certain style. This is where private tutoring can help adapt the information to a way more understandable to the student.

I have the most experience in tutoring college level physics, but I have also tutored for chemistry, astronomy, and assorted mathematics classes.

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.

Differential Equations

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Physics, which requires Differential Equations. I tutored Differential Equations for two students this past year at SUNY Adirondack, along with multiple other maths and physics. Differential Equations is a hard class to tutor, and requires mostly working through example problems with the student. I constantly have to refresh myself on the different techniques for each section, which I do before each session, so that I am able to be of the most help.

Physics

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Physics and have been tutoring General Physics since college. I have since also tutored Engineering Physics in the past year.
