College and High School Physics and Math

As my degree subject, Physics is my primary tutoring subject. I take a particular joy in teaching it with direct connections to a student's own experiences, using the world to make sense of the math, and using the math to make sense of the world. Tutoring is an act of observation. It succeeds where normal instruction fails because it is geared toward a student's particular strengths. My best experiences as a tutor have been with the students who needed me most, learning how they needed to learn. I have been a tutor in one setting or another since childhood. As an undergraduate I was a tea [more]

Master the fundamentals and the rest will come naturally

I received a 5 on the AP Physics C exam and a 790 on the Physics SAT subject test. In high school I served as an academic tutor for the AP Physics class. I chose to get my undergraduate degree in Engineering Physics because it was the only engineering major that required quantum mechanics. I also chose took the Honors track for physics at UC Berkeley. I am recent graduate of UC Berkeley's College of Engineering. While in school I studied a variety of disciplines including mechanical and electrical engineering, materials science, and computer science. But I wasn't just interested in gaining tho [more]

Retired NASA research scientist

I graduated with an undergraduate degree in Physics from Cornell University and a PH.D. in Physics from Syracuse University. Following this I taught for two years at Drexel University in Philadelphia PA. I then had the opportunity to join the NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View California. At Ames I pursued a rich and rewarding research career spanning 40 years in planetary studies and Earth's atmosphere studies. I played a significant role in explaining the Antarctic Ozone hole in the... [more]

Berkeley Computational Neuroscience PhD Student (CS, Phys, Chem, Math)

I have tutored many students in AP physics over the past seven years. In addition to this direct experience, my day-to-day use of math in computational neuroscience (a favorite field of "refugee physicists") keeps me fresh in the requisite mathematical skills. I can help with any physics class up through a first-year calculus-based college course. Hello prospective student! I'm a 30-year-old PhD candidate in computational neuroscience at UC Berkeley. My other credentials include a BA in chemistry from Northwestern University, a Certificate of Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA) from Internatio [more]

PhD in Chemical Eng, Patient and Knowledgeable in Math and Science

I have a PhD in chemical engineering. I have 3 years experience tutoring students in college and currently am teaching Math in college. Mathematics is a language. I know this language pretty good and having a PhD in engineering major makes me excellent at all subjects in math. Chemical engineering is my major and I have been in engineering school studying it for 12 years. So, I would say I am an experienced chemical engineer with extensive knowledge mainly in Thermodynamics, Fluid mechanics ... [more]

Biomedical Engineer (UC Berkeley PhD) for Math and Science Tutoring

In high school I was an AP Physics student and my excellent performance on the AP exam earned me College Physics credit when I started pursuing my BS degree in Biomedical Engineering. I did take courses with a heavy advanced Physics content later on as part of other requirements for my BS degree. As an undergraduate student I did laboratory research that required application of several Physics concepts. My work culminated in a peer-reviewed publication shedding light on how cells in blood vessels operate. As a graduate student at UC Berkeley, I was a graduate student instructor at the Physics [more]

Math, science, and test prep tutor fresh out of Stanford

I completed my undergraduate degree in Engineering Physics at Stanford University and went on to apply my knowledge during a masters in Materials Science and Engineering. I've been tutoring physics for over two years, and teach everything from introductory high school mechanics to college E&M. Striving for an top-notch test score, or mastering math and physics classes, can be daunting and frustrating. Sometimes a teacher doesn?t explain the material well, or abstract concepts don?t quite click. That?s why I bring patience and a positive attitude to my tutoring. I use a technique of offering mu [more]
