I greatly enjoy tutoring math and physics because it gives me a sense of fulfillment to see students finally understand how to complete a problem after struggling for so long. Math and physics can initially be very difficult to comprehend, but with practice and clear instruction they can actually be fun and interesting. My approach is to stress critical thinking skills and not just memorization. It is important to know the list of steps necessary to solve a problem, but it is even more important to know why each step is needed and how one example problem can be used to understand many other problems. Math and physics are very useful in the real world, so having a grasp on these subjects can be very beneficial. I take great pride in helping students gain the mathematical and scientific knowledge necessary to be successful in whatever field they choose to pursue.
I have accumulated 4 years of teaching/tutoring experience in math and physics courses as I helped students achieve their higher potential. I received a masterâ€™s degree in physics from Lehigh University in January 2018 and worked as a Teaching Assistant throughout the course of my graduate degree. My responsibilities included teaching physics labs and classroom recitations, creating quizzes, conducting exam review sessions, and holding office hours for students that had questions on the course material. I received a bachelor's degree in physics and minor in mathematics from Penn State University in January 2015 and previously acquired a bachelorâ€™s degree in civil engineering from Penn State. During my time between undergraduate and graduate school, I tutored students in physics and math related subjects using Wyzant and various other tutoring sites. I have experience tutoring in subjects including high school and college level calculus, trigonometry, algebra, SAT/ACT math prep, physics, engineering mechanics, and basic math skills.
