Gustavus Adolphus College (Physics)
Math and physics are hard--that's why I'm here to help you survive and thrive!
As a physics graduate with 3 years of experience tutoring, I have an overarching understanding of mathematics, particularly those topics utilized in applied sciences. This includes geometry, algebra, trigonometry, linear algebra, precalculus, calculus, and differential equations.
Physics is my element. I am knowledgeable in include electromagnetism, mechanics, introductory atomic and quantum physics, optics, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, condensed matter, oscillations/wave physics, and limited computer modeling and programming. (A general science degree means I also have knowledge in other disciplines. For example, general chemistry students in high school or college are more than welcome to contact me!) My strong suit is in topics high school subjects and college-level courses, but I am flexible with age and courses.
My primary goal in tutoring is to instill an appreciation for self-learning in students. Most learning is done on one's own; some students have trouble learning or memorizing, or the standard techniques of learning are unhelpful. Regardless, my goal is to elevate students' grades, and boost their confidence in their own abilities, so that they gain a love for learning that will surpass my time with them.

My rate drops to $40/hr if a student asks for online lessons since I expend no money for travel.
Jack tutored my daughter for two hours in preparation for an in-class AP physics exam. He was friendly, patient, and clearly knew the subject matter. i would absolutely recommend him.
Jack tutored my son in AP Physics. He's very patient and goes through each problem step by step. It really helped my son understand his rigorous lesson plan. Jack even went a step further by sending my son examples and things to remember for his homework and upcoming test. Definitely would recommend him!
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 one and a half years of experience tutoring middle school and high school levels. I also have a physics B.A. which requires a mastery of high school and college math.
I have a Physics B.A., and three years of experience tutoring courses which involve mathematics from algebra and trigonometry to high level calculus and linear algebra.
As a college graduate with a physics degree, I am well-versed in the theories and applications of linear algebra. Topics I have regularly seen and utilized include matrices and determinants, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, change of basis, and orthogonality conditions. I like to think of linear algebra as an extremely generalized mathematical description of space, with a broad range of specific and useful applications in science and engineering.
