One is never too old to learn, nor is one ever too young to teach. I have been a teacher all my life, although the subject matter and quality have, of course, changed with time. At the University of Washington I was taught by leaders in their field while earning my B.S. in Atmospheric Sciences and a minor in Applied … Read more

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

I employ a step-by-step approach to concepts, especially in math. I start with the fundamentals and help the student build the concept up until they have a thorough grasp of it. Algebra is the foundation for most of a student's further study of math, so a firm grasp of the principles is essential. Everyone learns in a different manner and by introducing a concept from the ground up, I can modify a lesson to meet the student's most effective style of learning. I have a B.S. degree in meteorology and a minor in applied mathematics, both have provided me with a robust mathematical background as well as teaching opportunities at the University of Washington.

In all math subjects I teach, I employ a step-by-step approach to concepts. I start with the fundamentals and help the student build the concept until they have a thorough grasp of it. Everyone learns in a different manner and by introducing a concept incrementally, I can tailor the lesson to meet the student's style of learning. I have a degree in meteorology and a minor in applied mathematics, both have provided me with a strong mathematical background as well as teaching opportunities.

Astronomy has been a fascination of mine since childhood. Much of what I know is self-taught. However, I have also taken courses in both high school and college on the subject. I enjoy teaching it because of the challenge of communicating the large and often exotic concepts of the subject.

Calculus is a key component of mathematics and what has allowed for countless discoveries. I have taken calculus in high school as well as in college. Calculus was a key component to my applied mathematics minor. I believe calculus can be taught in a manner that is accessible to any student.

I have a long history of working with the geosciences stretching as far back as junior high school. Many of the topics covered in courses involve weather, which I have a B.S. in from the University of Washington. I have also taken several courses in various aspects of geology and have a long time interest in the subject. As with all science subjects I teach, I focus on building up difficult or complex topics from a simple analogy or diagram until the student can grasp the concept with a full understanding of not only what it is, but also why it is.

Geometry goes hand in hand with algebra. In many respects, it is somewhat of a visual form of algebraic concepts. When teaching, I like to use diagrams whenever possible to convey ideas. As a visual form of math, these diagrams are especially effective. I am very much a visual person, so I can simplify visual concepts to help the student understand them. My background from University of Washington's meteorology and applied mathematics courses honed my skill at this style of teaching.

I have been using MATLAB for five years now and consider it a great, user friendly code. I have used the language for everything from modeling weather systems to producing three-dimensional images. For two years I used it as part of an assistant job at the University of Washington. Due to its simplicity and abundance of support, I believe MATLAB is a great learning tool.

My degree is in the Atmospheric Sciences, which is itself a physical science. However, I have taken many courses on several earth sciences along with a whole series of courses on physics. I see the world as a system full of transfers of energy and mass conservation. Using such everyday examples is how I communicate these concepts to students who might have trouble grasping them directly from a textbook.

In all math subjects I teach, I employ a step-by-step approach to concepts. I start with the fundamentals and help the student build the concept until they have a thorough grasp of it. This is especially important for precalculus as it is the foundation that prepares the student for calculus, which has very different concepts. Everyone learns in a different manner and by introducing an idea or concept incrementally, I can tailor the lesson to meet the student's style of learning. I have a degree in meteorology and a minor in applied mathematics, both have provided me with a strong mathematical background as well as teaching opportunities.
