The Keys to Understanding a Subject: Fundamentals and Problem Solving

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]

Physics and Mathematics tutor, Harvard-trained with NASA experience

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 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 aware of the [more]

Math and Science Tutor with a Master's Degree in Physics

I have a master's degree in physics with a specialization in astrophysics. I am working on a Ph.D. in astronomy and am published in one of the leading journals in the field, the Astrophysical Journal. I hold physics degrees from Boston College and Tufts university. I'm currently following my lifelong passion for science by doing research in astrophysics toward my Ph. D. In addition to satisfying my own curiosity, one of the things I love most about research is the chance to share what I've learned with others. Having a chance to spark an appreciation for just how incredible the workings of th [more]

MIT Grad Keen to Tutor Math, Science, SAT/ACT

I love to tutor and am excited to find myself with enough time to take on a small number of students. I graduated from MIT and am currently working on a start-up part time and at MIT as an instructor. I miss the one-on-one academic environment and am keen to share some of my knowledge. I would like to teach math (through BC calculus), science (physics, chemistry, biology, environmental), engineering (mechanical, electrical) or history (modern European or US). I could also help you prepare for... [more]

Harvard Physics PhD with background in teaching physics and math

Hi everyone, I?m Natalie! I completed my undergraduate studies at UCLA where I earned a B.S. in Astrophysics before moving to Cambridge to pursue a PhD in physics at Harvard. While working on my thesis, which was published last May under the title ?Modeling the Constituents of the Early Universe?, I also pursued my interest in education, particularly how science is taught in the classroom. I spent three semesters as a Teaching Fellow for the undergraduate physics courses offered to pre-medica... [more]
