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 challenging. For some it's the math; for many more it's the concepts. I can help students develop approaches that h [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]

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]

Hello students and parents: My name is Deborah P., and I have over ten years of experience teaching mathematics in secondary education, seven of which include teaching all levels of Algebra with traditional and inquiry-based curriculum. In addition, I have instructed students in middle school mathematics through Pre-calculus. Currently, I tutor middle school and high school mathematics. I am looking forward to assisting your student and helping them to achieve their fullest potential thi... [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]

Don't let math or computer science be intimidating! My name is Mike, and I have a bachelor's degree in aerospace engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign and a master's degree in applied mathematics from the University of Illinois at Chicago. While attending the University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign, I worked as a math tutor in the Office of Minority Student Affairs, where the classes that I tutored ranged from introductory college-level to advanced undergraduate...

I took AP physics in high school. I also took a year of college level physics, receiving an A all three quarters. I have previously helped a student with physics and was able to help them increase their grade significantly. Hi, my name is Brett and I am a graduate from the University of California, Santa Barbara with a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Studies with an emphasis in Chemistry. I received an Outstanding Academic Achievement Award for excellence in my major. I have worked as a free-lance tutor for the past year for middle-school and high-school aged students, speciali [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]

Physics is the most fundamental of the sciences and is the foundation of chemistry and other life sciences. While Newtonian Physics have been around for several centuries, relativistic physics, thanks to Albert Einstein, has had a profound impact on the world in the past century. Now research into quantum mechanics and string theory is poking holes into our current knowledge. I am a fun-loving, pragmatic, task master. I believe in making math fun through the use of computational tricks and short cuts that are often no longer taught in schools. I recognize that some students are handicapped [more]
