About Noah

Hi,

I'm currently on a leave from the physics graduate program at PSU. Prior to starting coursework here, I spent about a year working at Huntington Learning Center in Beaverton. Most of my students here have been junior high and high school students, although I have worked with college students in the past. In addition to subject tutoring math (from basic algebra to calculus) and physics, I also taught ACT/SAT exam preparation. I have been tutoring since my second year in college, however, and have extensive experience.

I moved here shortly after graduating with a BS in physics, with a minor in mathematics. I was short a few math courses from a second degree, but I would have had to take more general requirements. I'm familiar with differential equations, complex variables/calculus, linear algebra, abstract algebra, etc.

After graduating I taught a college physics lab course, as well as its recitation. I'd work with the college students helping them along, making sure they had the right ideas. I'm familiar with conceptual physics, as well as algebraic and calculus based courses. If you have any questions or would care to speak with me, please feel free to contact me.

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.

Algebra 1

Topics include the following: factoring; exponents and radicals; systems of linear equations, complex fractions; and inequalities.

Algebra 2

The assumed material is a detailed study of polynomial, exponential, and logarithmic functions, that employs skills learned from algebra 1.

Astronomy

Topics include: The sun as a star, physical properties and evolution of stars, principles of spectroscopy as applied to astronomy, the major stages of stellar evolution, binary stars, variable stars, star clusters, gaseous nebulae, stellar motions and distribution, Milky Way and external galaxies, expanding universe, cosmic time scale, origin of elements.

Historical and philosophical development of our physical picture of the universe, evolution of galaxies, origin of the elements, cosmic distance scale, development of large-scale structure, and the earliest stages of the Big Bang.

Calculus

The following topics are considered standard:

Functions, limits, continuity, derivative, definite integral, applications, exponential and logarithmic functions, definite integral, applications, L'Hospital's Role, techniques of integration, limits of sequence, infinite series, polar coordinates, solid analytic geometry, functions of several variables, partial differentiation, multiple integration, vector fields, line and surface integrals, Stokes' and Green's theorems.

Differential Equations

As a physicist, it was vital to learn differential equations. During undergrad I took both Ordinary and Partial differential equations. I did well in both courses.

Linear Algebra

I've taken the standard undergraduate linear algebra course, and then went on to learn multilinear algebra to do differential geometry. The material is used extensively in physics.

Physical Science

I've had coursework in biology; physics; earth & space science; and astronomy. Given a description of what you need, I would be able to help on a topic by topic basis, only if I felt qualified.

Physics

Physics I:
Newtonian mechanics, oscillations and waves, fluids, heat and thermodynamics.

Physics II:
Electricity, magnetism, DC and AC circuits, light, geometrical and physical optics, and introduction to modern physics.

Physics III:
Special relativity, introduction to quantum theory, Schroedinger equation, the hydrogen atom, many-electron atoms, statistical physics, molecules, and solids.

Physics IV:
Conduction in metals; semiconductors; superconductivity; nuclear structure, reactions, and applications; radioactivity; elementary particles; cosmology; and introduction to general relativity.

Other courses:
I have taken many upper level courses designed to cover many of these topics in greater detail, as well as introductory string theory, nuclear astrophysics, and group theoretic/lagrangian techniques for theoretical physics.

Prealgebra

Prealgebra covers arithmetic of fractions and signed numbers and beginning equations in one variable.

Precalculus

Topics include: graphing equations in two variables; functions and their graphs; linear, quadratic, polynomial, and rational functions; and exponential and logarithmic functions.

Proofreading

I can read your paper, and offer constructive criticism to whatever point you wish. It can range from checking grammar and spelling, to methods to strengthen one's writing (quotations, avoidance of passive voice, phrasing for coherency, etc...).

Trigonometry

The coursework I took was intended to develop the properties of the trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions, for preparation of its usage in calculus.

Pleasant and helpful — To begin, Noah is quite punctual. He was patient when I didn't understand a concept and walked me back through steps and used different methods until I did. He was very accommodating about time and location, as well. Always pleasant! He's obviously proficient with math and science, and I would recommend him for help with any course. ...
