Harvey Mudd Grad Coaches Mindful Learning

I love physics! Before you read on, I encourage you to go watch an episode of PBS Space Time so that you can fall in love a little bit, too. Physics can be tough, though, and that's why I've developed a systematic problem-solving approach that will get you through any AP Physics problem. Want the secrets now? Here you go: Know column, Want column, Equations, Variable check, Define directions, Draw a picture. And make sure you write down your units :) Kathryn is a professional private tutor and Effective Altruist who spends her life helping students understand tough concepts in math, science, [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]

Working scientist, PhD, nuclear physicist, vast experience

I've been teaching or tutoring for over twenty years in some form or another. For me the reward from tutoring is when I see that a student has caught onto an idea, when the light bulb goes on. In my career I've not only studied physics, mathematics and statistics, but applied them as well as time management and study skills. I can help a student succeed in all these areas. My career has included a PhD in Nuclear Physics, postdoctoral work in nuclear astrophysics and over twenty years of e... [more]

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]

UCLA engineer

My chemical engineering degree at UCLA included all the basic physics classes, including motion, optics, magnetism, electricity, and other physics subjects. I scored an "A" in all of my physics classes. My engineering classes also utilize a lot of physics. Hello, I am Auster. I graduated from University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in Dec. of 2013 with a Chemical Engineering degree with a GPA of 3.8. I have experience working to tutor first and second year college students in multi-variable calculus as well as physics. While working with them, I developed my own manual to best teach the m [more]
