I have over 10 years teaching and tutoring students from high school to graduate level. My specialty is tutoring physics, helping students focus on developing concepts. I also assist with final preparation for AP exams. I have a Mechanical Engineering, M.S. and Ph. D. University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, and Mechanical Engineering, B.S. Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago. My many years tutoring and teaching physics have shown me each student finds different aspects many challenging. For some it's the math; for many more it's the concepts. I can help students develop approaches t [more]

I have taught various levels of physics to public school students, private school students, homeschoolers and college students for 23 years. For ACT test prep, I've tutored students who have received scores in the 30+ range in math and science. My specialty, though, is advanced high school and introductory college physics (both algebra and calculus-based). I currently teach honors physics and AP Mechanics C to juniors and seniors in a large suburban high school district. I have also been overseeing the math development of my four home-schooled children from basic math through pre-calculus. A [more]

I have degrees in chemistry from two of the top universities in the country, the University of Chicago (BS) and UCSD (PhD). My training has been heavily influenced by both physics and math. I have taught a lot of physics through courses such as physical chemistry, instrumental analysis, and thermodynamics. My experience comes from the mathematical description of chemical phenomenon in physical terms: chemical physics. I am very familiar with particle mechanics, waves, optics, atomic physics, quantum mechanics, thermodynamics, and statistical mechanics. I am interested in scientific explanation [more]

I have a PhD. in experimental nuclear physics and have been tutoring for more than 5 years. I have completed undergraduate and/or graduate school coursework in the following subjects - classical mechanics, electricity and magnetism, astronomy, modern physics and quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics and thermodynamics, solid state physics, plasma physics, physical optics, nuclear physics, particle physics, quantum field theory, and experimental methods in physics research. I was also a graduate research assistant for four years and a graduate teaching assistant for an undergraduate course [more]

Ph. D. , M.S. and B.S. in physics from Tennessee, Vanderbilt and Purdue , respectively, and MBA from the University of Chicago. As a retired PhD physicist I now have flexibility to devote my energies to a young person (mid-high school through college) who is interested in learning math and science and developing a career in a technical field. Beyond math and science, I have varied interests in the liberal arts and the science-spirituality interface. Married for nearly 50 years and a father of four, 3 boys and a girl, I am at ease with helping young people learn and succeed in their chosen educ [more]

I studied mathematical physics from the University of Chicago. Particularly, I worked on nonlinear dispersive equations. Techniques from geometric and harmonic analysis are used to understand local and global behavior of solutions in different spaces. I have over fifteen years of experience tutoring to high school, college, and graduate students. My specialty lies in tutoring mathematics in several areas such as calculus, elementary/abstract algebra, linear algebra, differential equations, real/complex analysis, and topology. In my experience, I've found that students learn mathematics most [more]

I love teaching math and science, and I know how to make it fun and interesting. As a physicist I work everyday with math and science, and I have a long experience in teaching and tutoring at all levels (university, high school, middle and elementary school). My son (a 5th grader) scores above 99 percentile in all math tests, and you too can have high scores.... [more]

Whether students love math and science or despise them, I am usually able to make the experience better for them. I tailor tutoring sessions based on students? needs and parents? expectations. When a student is struggling, I provide specific help where it's needed. I am particularly good at making Chemistry much less painful to deal with. I am able to explain the material in understandable ways. One of the best compliments I received recently is that one of my students jokingly said to her... [more]

I have six years of experience teaching physics and astronomy, and I enjoy helping people to understand difficult or abstract concepts. I have a Ph.D. in Astrophysics, and I now work for the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory outside of Chicago in particle physics and scientific computing. As an experimental physicist, I have extensive use and knowledge of computer programming and software development. I'm currently the release manager for the g-2 experiment at Fermilab, and use extensiv... [more]

I am a Mechanical Engineer with over 20 years experience in design and construction. In my projects I have used basic math and science skills of problem solving, and analytical approach guiding me to success. I have master's degree and mathematics is my favorite subject with other engineering subjects as thermodynamics, hydraulics, and heat transfer. I love coaching my kids and had similar success mentoring junior engineers. I have used basics of algebra, geometry, and calculus in my ... [more]
