About Hsiao-harng

I love teaching! It's my passion and I hope to exercise this passion by meeting some of you! I teach most effectively through one-on-one and group interactions. Thus, tutoring is my specialty when it comes to teaching. The subjects I can tutor in are Math and Physics because I have a Bachelor and Master degree in Physics from Western Washington University and University of Arkansas (Fayetteville). During my undergraduate and graduate years at those schools, I taught beginning level physics courses for 7 years and enjoyed it. Ever since I finished school, I started tutoring and have been happily doing it for 3 years. With this level of education and experience, I can tutor from elementary level to graduate level.

In addition to my physics/math and teaching background, I have computer skills ranging from Microsoft Office to troubleshooting common computer problems and to installing computer peripherals. So I can also tutor in general computers.

As a final note, I am fun, supportive, and patient and I hope to make your learning experience a fun one. I am willing to adjust my teaching style so that it aligns with your learning style because I want my students to get the most out of me.

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 know Calculus can be a scary subject but it can be a fun one because it has many real life applications. Give me a chance to help you appreciate Calculus so that you will enjoy it and have fun with it. In fact, I heard that those who were nervous about Calculus came to love it as they progressed into it.

Differential Equations

When I took a math class on Differential Equation (DiffEq), I thought it was easier to understand than Calculus. In this DiffEq class, I learned about how to solve first-order differential equations that describe systems such as population growth and the harmonic oscillator. These differential equations even involve imaginary numbers and eigenvalues and eigenvectors. I came to appreciate those after I took this class and I enjoyed it! I hope to make your DiffEq class a similar experience.

Physics

Physics is my specialty because I have a Bachelor and Master degree in Physics. While studying, I worked as a Teaching Assistant where I taught introductory physics laboratory courses. The lab courses I taught were Newtonian Mechanics, Electricity & Magnetism (my favorite!), Geometric Optics, and General Physics. Teaching these courses for a total of seven years during my undergraduate and graduate career combined gives me the confidence needed to tutor someone like you in Physics!

Great first tutoring session!

Hsiao-harng taught my daughter. who is a senior in high school taking AP Physics and AP Calculus, this evening. It was her first session with him and she said it was great! He is very knowlegable and capable in both of these topics, and is the best tutor she has ever had for them. Past tutors from other places never have had advanced enough knowledge (especially in Physics) to help her very well
