About Elizabeth

I offer personalized, one-on-one tutoring for all Physics and most Mathematics courses.

I have an MS in physics (astrophysics) from the University of Pittsburgh, and and BS in physics with mathematics from Bucknell University.

I have taught physics and mathematics as a college instructor and as a personal tutor for almost a decade. My favorite part of teaching has always been working with students one-on-one, so I love tutoring.

I have an undergraduate degree in Physics and a graduate degree in Astrophysics. The math courses I tutor were used directly and frequently in all my physics courses and in my research.

My favorite subject in school was math, and I view my post-secondary work as the logical continuation of that. I have been teaching and tutoring math for several years, from Algebra I to Calc III.

I meet students regularly at the main branch of the Carnegie Library in Oakland. I am willing to travel for a slightly higher rate.

I love teaching, and I'd love to work with you. Please send me a message if you think I can help.

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 received an A in Differential Equations in my undergraduate course. Differential equations was necessary for completing several my my core courses in graduate school, so the material is fresh in my memory. The last time I tutored this subject was 2-3 months ago.

We went over vectors, kinematics, and velocity-time graphs. She was extremely helpful and explained things in matters I could easily grasp. I definitely will be using her again!
