While growing up I was an active amateur astronomer, and I have taught this subject at the introductory level. I have the good fortune to be married to a professional astronomer who occasionally involves me in her work on symbiotic star systems. I am an experienced high school physics and mathematics teacher, retired, with current Massachusetts certification in both areas. I have taught various levels of mathematics--through calculus--as standalone courses and as part of the content of physics courses, so I have a range of pedagogical strategies to employ in these areas. I am very much awar [more]

I took all of the available undergraduate Astronomy and AstroPhysics courses at MIT. I will help my students learn how to solve problems, not just memorize facts and figures. Starting with an assessment of your current strengths and areas for improvement, I will put together a plan to improve your academic performance in the physical sciences or mathematics. My goal is to see you reach a personal "Aha! moment" during each session. I have spent eleven years teaching Chemistry, Mathematics, and Physics (including Calculus-based AP Physics) to high school students. I have also... [more]

In order to help you make the important decision concerning a tutor, let me give you a brief introduction: I have taught physics (from the college/honors levels to the AP levels (Mechanics/Electricity & Magnetism Level "C" with calculus and Level "B" without calculus) and mathematics (algebra 2; pre-calculus; calculus: differential/integral and multivariable). I have had forty-two years of teaching experience. I retired last June from a High School, and currently am tutoring students from ... [more]

I have twice taught astronomy at the college level, and my distributed minor in graduate school was in astronomy. I also have hundreds of hours of astronomy tutoring experience to date. I specialize in teaching and explaining physics; it's what I do. I strive to make it less scary in person, and I also put a lot of work into making online tutoring (through the WyzAnt website) as immediate and personal as being there. I have CURRENT college teaching experience, planning and leading (without any TAs) introductory physics classes (both calculus- and algebra-based; the kind of material that sho [more]

While my research is chemical in nature, it has strong ties to astronomy and astrophysics. Astronomy has always been a hobby of mine and now I am able to marry it to my work as far as my research as well as teaching it. My knowledge base is college level astronomy with some deeper knowledge when it comes to spectroscopy and quantum effects. I graduated cum laude from the University of Massachusetts Boston with an American Chemical Society (ACS) certified Bachelor's degree in chemistry. Currently, I am entering my second year as a PhD student in chemical physics at Tufts University and am focus [more]

Dear Student/Parent, I have eight years experience as a pubic school Art teacher for grades K-12. Currently, I am a substitute teacher in the Ayer/Shirley Regional School District for grades K-12 and am substituting in all subject matters. While I have my own special strengths in subject matters; my main strength is the ability to impart a love of learning in whatever subject I am involved with. I am comfortable with students with special needs, as well as with advanced learning students l... [more]

My approach to teaching has always been one of a relaxed, yet structured environment. I've always used humor in the class so everyone is relaxed and, therefore, open to learning and I teach to all kinds of learners: those who do best by seeing things again and again, by hearing things repeated, by doing rather than hearing, and by saying things outloud again and again. We do whatever it takes to make learning less challenging so we are successful together. So many of my students have been wh... [more]

As an undergraduate and graduate student in physics, my specialty was astrophysics. I was also the teaching assistant for several planetary science classes. As a student approaches a subject, there are two major factors to success: a solid foundation in the fundamentals and skills at solving problems. The fundamentals are very important for understanding why aspects of the subject work the way they do and to be able to build on one aspect to understand others. Being able to solve problems means the student can apply what they have learned in useful ways. As a tutor, my role is to insure that [more]

I am a physics teacher for the Nashua school district with over 5 years of physics teaching/tutoring experience. In addition to physics I have also taught chemistry and math at the high school level. My bachelors degrees are in chemistry and meteorology with some graduate work in physics, but I enjoy all the physical sciences. I can also teach any level up math up to and including calculus. If your child is in need of help in science or math please reach out to me via email or phone to sc... [more]

I've taken Astronomy as an elective at Boston University as well as was in the Astronomy club there. I was a Lecturer for 5 years at Hesser College and Chester College in multiple subjects. Before teaching, I spent 10+ years as a vision researcher at Harvard and its affiliates. In addition to teaching at the college level, I also homeschooled my son through middle school using an accredited curriculum. His exemplary test scores for curriculum progress and the ISEE standardized tests demonstrated both his learning and my teaching ability in all middle school subject matter. I am a patient.. [more]
