About Whitney

I graduated from The University of Texas at Austin in 2016 with an honors physics degree and business certificate. Hook 'em! Although I'm still a newer WyzAnt tutor, I have a lot of tutoring experience. While I was a student at UT, I tutored 700+ hours in college-level math and science classes. I am also a CRLA - certified master tutor.

I like math and physics, but I like tutoring them more. My goal as a tutor is to teach students how to learn difficult concepts. I want my students to eventually not need me. A lot of students that I've taught have become tutors in the material themselves.

At the beginning of each session, I go over the short-term and long-term goals of the session and adjust my tutoring style accordingly. I am always looking for feedback. If in the middle of a session you don't feel like I'm doing the very best job possible, we will take a step back and try something else.

Please contact me if you have any questions or want to schedule a session!

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.

Calculus

I love calculus. I took AP calculus AB in high school, and then made a 5 by self-studying for the AP calculus BC exam. At university, my test scores allowed me to skip the two sequence class, but I took both calculus application classes and used calculus in the majority of my physics classes. I also have tutored it extensively at the college level, both for university and community college students.

Physics

I majored in physics at UT. I have been an undergraduate teaching assistant for algebra-based physics, where I taught the lab portion and led office hours and reviews for lecture portion. Most of my tutoring experience is in physics 1 and 2.

SAT Math

I made a 780 on my SAT Math and a 770 on my SAT Math II subject test in 2011. Since then I have tutored all of the math subjects tested on the exam individually.

Awesome Tutor!

Whitney is awesome! She has helped me tremendously with my geometry assignments. She definitely doesn't do my homework but she does explain everything thoroughly so that I can do it on my own! She doesn't make you feel stupid EVER. She's really great.
