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]

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]

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 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. Take advantage of my expertise, but without the Expertise Effect! (Expertise Effect: where teacher experienced in a subject forget what it is like to encounter the material for the first time) -- I have organized and taught introductory physics in many classes (both with and without calculus), -- I have thorough experience with all introductory subjects -- I have honed and developed (from the many ques [more]

Hello, my name is Katrina! Last May, I graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a B.S. in Physics, having concentrated in advanced physics and astrophysics. I also have an extensive research background in astrophysics and electrical engineering. Now, I am beginning a new research job northwest of Boston. In college I was a teaching assistant for an introduction astronomy class for 2 years, where my love for teaching began. I then went on to become a volunteer physics tutor for the su... [more]

In addition to obtaining a B.A. in Astronomy and Physics, I have been teaching astronomy at the Charles Hayden Planetarium now for three years. Prior to this career, I held an undergraduate research position studying space physics. I recently started tutoring high school physics, and it has been a wonderful experience! It is incredibly rewarding to see progress and understanding in students. I also work at the Charles Hayden Planetarium at the Museum of Science in Boston where I educate the public on astronomy. I provide 45-minute live presentations on the universe to audiences of 50-200 peopl [more]

I'm a physics teacher with 5 years of classroom teaching experience and 5 years of private tutoring experience. I'm enthusiastic, professional, and very knowledgeable, but I also excel at meeting students where they are. Previous students have described me as easy to get along with and easy to understand. I have experience teaching all levels of physics, from basic conceptual physics to college-level, calculus based and AP. Though physics is my specialty, I also enjoy and have experience t... [more]

Math and physics are hard--that's why I'm here to help you survive and thrive! If you struggle with equations, get lost in word problems, or can't grasp the core concepts, don't worry: you aren't alone! As a physics graduate with 3 years of experience in tutoring, I am knowledgeable in several areas of study, including electromagnetism, mechanics, introductory atomic and quantum physics, optics, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, condensed matter, and oscillations/waves. My strong suit is in t... [more]

Science and Math: I am a part-time physics instructor at Endicott College in Beverly, MA, and am finishing my PhD in Physics at Tufts University in Somerville, MA (expected Summer 2018). I received my BS in Physics and Astronomy, and minor in Mathematics, from the University of Pittsburgh in 2010, and my MS in Physics from Tufts University in 2014. I currently teach both algebra-based and calculus-based second semester physics lectures and laboratory at Endicott College. Recently I have ta... [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]
