MIT grad for Physics, Chemistry, or Math

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]

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 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]

Current PhD Student/Teaching Assistant Specializing in Chemistry

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]
