Kansas State University (PHYSICS)
My name is Robert C. I have a degree in Physics with a minor in math from Kansas State University, 1957. I have also completed some graduate level math classes. I am retired from the Naval Research Labs since 2001. I spent 32 years at NRL designing electronic control circuits and attitude control algorithms for spacecraft. Since retirement, I have been tutoring math and physics for about 5 years. My students have had some success and I can provide references.
I try to persuade students to apply what they know when working a problem. Starting with what is given in the problem, what is required for the answer, and the relationships between the various elements. The rest of the problem will fall into place and the student is one more step up in the climb to success.
What you will need to do well in class.
1. Before class, read the assignment, try to understand the material.
2. As the teacher covers the lesson, if you still don’t understand, ASK.
3. Do the homework. Each problem is a lesson. Each problem illustrates a point you need to master to progress to the next level. This is where I can help as a tutor.
4. A good part of the learning is in the fingers. There is no substitute for working a problem on paper.
5. At test time, take care to READ THE PROBLEM CAREFULLY. So many times I have taken a quick look at a problem and ran off and answered the wrong question, when I could have just as easily have gotten it right.
6. Be confident, believe in yourself, you are prepared.
After the test:
Bring the test home. The material on the test is what you need to master to proceed to the next test. If you do not do well on this test, the test indicates the material you need to master to move to the next test.

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.
