If you want someone who can teach your child/student with great real world experience in Math and Physics, then that's me. I've worked at NASA Johnson Space Center training Astronauts in Space Shuttle Systems like Guidance, Propulsion and Flight Controls. I have a Bachelor's in Aerospace Engineering, and a Master's and PhD in Aeronautical Engineering, plus I've attained my High School Teaching Certificate for Physics and Math, and taught High School Physics and Physical Science for the last 13 years. Just moved to the Edmonds area from Ohio, and I'm looking for a local teaching position, but in the meantime, I'd love to help your student do better and learn better when it comes to Physics and Math. Very personable and love one-on-one teaching situations. Try me! You won't be disappointed with the results!

Ralph T. knows his stuff! A great tutor for my son. He is tutoring him in pre-calculus and physics in high school. I highly recommend him.
My son was having trouble with precalc and Ralph was there to help. They're covering so much material, so fast. It's amazing how Ralph can hand deliver these lessons and my kid gets it! I would highly recommend Ralph for any and all your math needs! I give him an A+ :)
I like Ralph's way of not holding my hand but challenging me to think through and keep pace. Have felt supremely comfortable with basic mechanics, kinematics, and Newtonian principles.
Ralph helped me through each problem and made sure I was comfortable with each stage of the process. He explained each problem very clearly and I was able to finally understand what was going on with my Calculus work. Thank you!
Ralph has worked well with my daughter where she is at, where she needs tutoring assistance. He was patient and supportive as she worked through hurdles with college math and next will help her with Chemistry. I recommend Ralph!
Ralph was able to quickly explain to Andy the math concepts with which Andy had been struggling. Ralph was able to work a few homework problems, show Andy how they are done and then watched as Andy worked the rest of the problems. Ralph was patient and caring while explaining the math concepts. Thanks Ralph!
Reid feels that Ralph really helps him get a firmer grasp on the concepts covered in his IB Physics class. It is a tough class and Ralph is helping Reid stay on top of things.
As the parent, I have been very happy with my daughter's sessions with Ralph. Her confidence in both Algebra/Trig and Physics has improved and she admits she is able to participate more fully in class now. In addition, she recently earned an A- on her last math test - progress indeed!
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.
Certificated Physics and math teacher. 14 years experience.
Taught physical science for 13 years at the high school level at the high school level at Mad River School District, Riverside, OH, from Aug 1999 to Jun 2012. I also taught Physics at the same level and starting at the same time, but for one additional year at the high school level in Bellevue, WA. And finally, I have tutored students in Physical Science from Aug 2012 until the present time.
