I studied Physics at Knox College in Illinois, graduating early in November of 2014. My main areas of interest are Astronomy/Astrophysics and Quantum Mechanics, but I'm well-versed in many areas of Physics, including Mechanics, Electricity & Magnetism, and Thermodynamics as well. Having studied Physics, I also have extensive experience in Math. My favorite branch of Math is Calculus, but I've also extensively used Algebra, Trigonometry, Geometry, Vectors, and Differential Equations. I also completed a minor in Comparative Politics.

I was a Teaching Assistant for Introductory Physics classes while in college. This involved helping students in the those classes with their homework and providing exam review. After graduating and until I moved to Seattle, I worked as an instructor at Mathnasium, a math-specific learning center, in Oak Park, Illinois.

I have experience teaching math in a one-on-one setting having worked as an instructor at Mathnasium. I also used math throughout my undergraduate study as Physics requires significant amounts of math. I specialize in tutoring for Advanced Placement Physics and Calculus (both AB and BC). One of my main areas of focus is encouraging students to avoid using their calculators whenever possible. This includes either improving mental math skills, learning to recognize certain patterns, or by simply doing out the math by hand. Calculators can be an invaluable tool, but they oftentimes slow down the process of solving a problem.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I've used Algebra constantly since I learned it since it is absolutely essential before pursuing any advanced math. Having studied Physics in college, I use basic Algebra on an almost everyday basis. I've also tutored students in the subject, both when I worked at Mathnasium and when I was a TA in college.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Having majored in Physics in college, I have used many levels of math on an everyday basis, but none more so than Algebra. Algebra 2 focuses on refining math techniques and skills, which I have helped many students do in their coursework in Physics. I have also worked with students in Algebra-level classes during my time at Mathnasium, so I am also familiar with direct teaching of Algebra concepts..
Calculus,

Calculus

I have used calculus extensively in my studies. I took AP Calculus BC my senior year of high school and scored a 5, so I'm very familiar with introductory level calculus. I am also very fluent in calculus with multiple variables and differential equations. I studied Physics in college, which uses calculus on an everyday basis. I also taught math one on one for most of the past year when I lived in Chicago.
Geometry,

Geometry

Geometry may seem like an unimportant branch of mathematics compared to Algebra, but it shows up later in Calculus and other advanced branches regularly. Therefore, I frequently work with students at all levels in honing their geometry skills, especially logic and reasoning.
Physics,

Physics

I took both AP Physics B (algebra-based Physics, equivalent to today's AP Physics 1 and 2, combined) and AP Physics C: Mechanics (calculus-based Physics) in high school and scored 5 and 4, respectively. I majored in Physics in college and served as a teaching assistant for 100 level Physics classes, which are generally equivalent to AP Physics.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

I have used many skills and concepts taught in precalculus throughout my education. I studied Physics in college, which makes extensive use of higher math and therefore requires one to excellent an excellent algebra and precalculus background. I took the actual precalculus class in high school, but have helped students with the concepts frequently since then, especially when I was a teaching assistant for introductory physics while in college.

I took the SAT twice in high school, scoring 700 on the math section.

Trigonometry,

Trigonometry

I've used Trigonometry throughout my education as it is a fundamental math skill required for Calculus and Physics, which is what I studied in college. I've also taught trigonometry-related skills and shortcuts in my work tutoring Physics, as trigonometry is frequently needed in that subject, even at the introductory level.

Very helpful

He came with great knowledge, an understanding of how to communicate well with my son and he spent some time discussing what classes my son should expect to be required in college.

Milissa, 8 lessons with George

Super smart and patient!

My son loves listening to George talk about physics and even after one lesson, it's really making a difference. He not only was able to do some of the assignments, he actually understood most of it! So glad we found him!

Liam, 20 lessons with George

Knowledgeable and helpful.

George brings a lot of background knowledge to the tutoring session. My daughter needed support with work she had not covered before for her AP Physics 2 course and George developed a study plan and guide to help her fill the gaps in her knowledge.

Lynnea, 22 lessons with George

George is an amazing Algebra teacher!

My daughter really enjoyed her algebra tutoring with George -- she usually is not a big fan of math, but after working with George she loved math! He is extremely brilliant at explaining algebra concepts.

Julie, 6 lessons with George

Excellent tutor!

George helped my son with his calculus homework and Math II subject test problems. His explanations were clear and efficient and my son found him very helpful and knowledgeable. Thank you George! Look forward to more lessons.

Daphne, 3 lessons with George

Knowledgeable and patient

George did a great job of explaining concepts and we will be using him again. Excellent tutor! He knows his calculus!

Kim, 11 lessons with George

super helpful!

George was an incredible help in learning what I needed to know for my calc 3 exam. He is really good at explaining things in multiple different ways until it makes sense. Similarly, he is also very patient when I asked question after question! I would highly recommend George as a tutor!!

Emma, 3 lessons with George

Knowledgeable and efficient!

George got right down to the business of what I needed help with. I really appreciated his efficient use of time, and ability to explain things clearly, too. Even after one two-hour session, I felt so much more confident. Thanks George!

RILEY, 8 lessons with George

Helpful, clear and knowledgeable

My daughter needed some help grasping calculus concepts. Within the first hour, George helped her understand concepts that she wasn't grasping from her teacher. Thank you!

Howard, 3 lessons with George

Good first tutoring session.

My daughter wasn't able to bring current homework but they were able to go over some problems she was having with the subject.
