To paraphrase Dr. Einstein, "If you are a master of a subject, you can make it simple." Have you ever had a teacher who couldn't get the material through to you? If so, you may have heard from a student something like, "I'm not getting any of this, but she's probably brilliant. She probably knows the material inside and out but isn’t good at getting it across." That is most often NOT the case. I put things in simple terms...

To paraphrase Dr. Einstein, "If you are a master of a subject, you can make it simple." Have you ever had a teacher who couldn't get the material through to you? If so, you may have heard from a student something like, "I'm not getting any of this, but she's probably brilliant. She probably knows the material inside and out but isn’t good at getting it across." That is most often NOT the case. I put things in simple terms because I understand them. If I don’t understand something, I admit it and not attempt to explain it. But I've been tutoring math and physics on and off since 1979. As an undergraduate beginning in 1981, I was appointed three times as a teaching assistant at The University of Maryland (College Park) Math Dept, worked as a coach in the UMD Math Education Lab, and worked as a UMD exam review lecturer in Pre-Calculus, Calculus I and Calculus II. Then, in 1984, I graduated with my BS in Mechanical Engineering with an elective concentration in Applied Math. In 1994 I completed 27 credits toward the 36 credits (non-thesis option) required for the MS in Mechanical Engineering, ThermoFluids at The University of Central Florida, when life took me in a different direction. ThermoFluids is arguably the most mathematically-intensive mechanical engineering specialty. I am a frequent volunteer contributor to the Wyzant "Ask an Expert" forum (see my work there), and the "Quora.com" world forum helping people with their physics, maths, engineering science, and academics. I like to put things in simple terms and will show you learning methods that work great IF you follow them and do your homework assignments. So here is how I can help:
A. Any Finite Math. This ranges from GED and Elementary Math to
Algebra, Trigonometry, and Pre-Calculus but does not include Linear
Algebra from a course dedicated only to Linear Algebra.
B. College- or High School AP-Calculus 1 and Calculus 2,
C. Business Calculus,
D: College- or High School AP-Physics 1 (algebra- or calculus-based),
E. Engineering Drawing,
F. Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing,
G. Statics,
H. Dynamics,
I. Thermodynamics,
J. Heat transfer, and
K. Mechanics of Materials.
I use plain language, simple analogies, and real-world examples likely to increase your interest in your subject. I emphasize good habits, standard terminology, concepts, and fundamentals. If I don't know something, I say so but promise to find out. In my opinion, THERE ARE NO STUPID QUESTIONS, so you will lose by not asking them. Lastly, I insist on being fully prepared for our time together. So I will review or work your homework problems in advance at no charge (but I will not turn them over to you). This means you must plan your time so I can get the material enough in advance.
My work with Wyzant is just getting started, so my low $30 rate won't last long.
