About Anne


Bio

I have enjoyed tutoring high school and undergraduate students for 10 years. I taught undergraduate physics labs at UT for 4 years. I present material in several different ways, including a brief summary, examples, written equations, graphs, and diagrams. I tailor explanations to a student's interest, and ask guiding questions during problem solving, keeping lecturing to a minimum.

Differential Equations

Differential equations are fundamental in modeling any dynamical system, from amusement park rides to circuits. I usually tutor at least one or two students a year heavily in this branch of mathematics. I have a good working knowledge of applications to thermodynamics, quantum and classical mechanics primarily from graduate courses. The introductory course focuses on separable and exact first order equations and linear second order equations. It introduces methods which are simple to break down into small, easy to explain steps. This includes using an integrating factor, reduction of order, a characteristic equation, undetermined coefficients, variation of parameters, series solutions and Laplace transforms to solve DEs. If you find yourself bogged down by derivations and struggling with your homework, I can show you the short path to using these methods like a pro.
Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

This branch of mathematics provides a powerful tool for solving systems of linear equations and performing vector operations. My background in this area includes undergraduate linear algebra and applied tensor calculus in graduate electromagnetism and quantum mechanics. I tutor and use linear algebra principles regularly. The algebra of matrices, matrix multiplication and inversion, linear transformations, finding determinants, and an introduction to eigenvalues and eigenvectors are always covered in the introductory course. I also have a good working knowledge of vector operations and properties of hilbert space which are studied more in depth in applied courses. The applications in wave mechanics is important to a variety of fields, such as signal processing, thermodynamics and quantum mechanics.

Was A Qualified Tutor

She was a qualified tutor but she did not contact or follow up after the session. She stopped it exactly at one hour although my daughter did not even finish the homework she was going over and we had discussed stretching the session out if needed since it was our first session. Of course this is just the one session. I gave three stars for expertise. Minus 2 stars for people skills.

Great Tutor and Very Knowledgeable

Anne is very knowledgeable in the principles of engineering physics (303L). She is very helpful, patient and tries different ways to teach topics so they are comprehended. I look forward to our next session.

Terry & Kathryn, 14 lessons with Anne

Very helpful.

Anne was very patient and helpful. When she wasn't sure about a concept, she wasn't afraid to double-check to make sure she was giving me the correct information. She made relearning math concepts much more manageable.

Great tutor!!

Anne explained things in a very easy to understand manner. I came in knowing very little about probability and in a two hour lesson came out feeling confident about a whole chapter my professor spent a few weeks on. She used many examples to explain concepts and used many visuals as well, which greatly helped me. Even if you're not learning about probability, I highly recommend her for anyone needs help in math or science!

Awesome Tutor

Anne is a great Tutor, she makes Calculus and Physics very easy and simple. It has been requested by my Physics Professor that I find the right tutor is assisting me in improving my grade and it looks like which I am most certain a perfect match. I look forward to many more further teaching sessions with her.

Very thorough

During the initial process of finding a tutor, Anne's timely and thorough responses to my emails convinced me to try out a tutoring session with her. I was pleased with the way the lesson went, not only because of Anne's expertise in differential equations and punctuality, but greatly due to her very thorough follow up emails describing what we have reviewed and delineating solutions to some problems that we ran into during the lesson. Would recommend!
