Since 2005, I've tutored over thirty students in 8th and 9th grade physics, physics for the MCAS and for the SAT subject test, advanced placement physics B and C, physics for teachers to help them pass the MTEL and for pre-med students to help them with the MCAT, college physics for non-science majors, and college physics for scientists and engineers. I've also written sections of physics workbooks and digital content for major publishers. The best way to understand most concepts in physics that are new to a student is to represent it on paper. More than any other discipline, academic physics [more]

I graduated from Marblehead H.S. in 1966 and completed my Ph.D. in Engineering at R.P.I. During my career at General Electric I was a lecturer and adjunct professor at Union College Graduate School teaching engineering subjects. I always loved learning math and science and was gratified during my engineering career to see how often that knowledge was essential to my work. I was the top math student in my high school graduating class, and did National Honor Society math tutoring to under-c... [more]

As a math education specialist, I work well with many different types of students from middle school through adult. I also bring an energy and love of my subject that helps students connect with their work. My creativity and an ability to connect math to real world applications, and dedication to my students are some of the things that set me apart as a teacher. I have my masters plus extensive additional coursework. With over 15 years experience teaching math, and science I am well verse... [more]

I studied math at MIT, specializing in mathematical physics -- the study of the mathematical structures and techniques that underlie theoretical physics. I have hundreds of hours of experience teaching classical mechanics, electromagnetism, and quantum mechanics. I'm an independent tutor in my late twenties. I specialize in academic tutoring and test preparation for high school, college, and graduate students. I have ten years and thousands of hours of experience working with hundreds of students around the world, and I look forward to helping you! BIO: I studied theoretical math, literature, [more]

I have a BS in Physics from MIT and taught high school physics full-time for 6 years. 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]

I have a Ph.D. in physics and work professionally in biophysics and bioanalytical chemistry. (My thesis research involved the construction and characterization of computational lattice models of protein folding kinetics.) We all know more physics than we think we do. Our physical intuitions were developed in playgrounds, riding in cars, skating, riding a bike, watching water flow. As a tutor, I try to connect this already well-developed intuition with mathematical expression. It starts hard, but it gets easy quickly for most people when they pick up the rhythm of the solve. In the last six mon [more]

I have a master's degree in physics (Optics). I taught college physics for eight years at a University in China before I came to the United States. I had done research related to physics at Clemson University and University of Florida for eight years before I came to Boston in 2011. I also have a teacher certificate as a physics teacher for teaching at the University in China. I've worked with students taking AP physics, high school honors physics and high school physics at Belmont High School, Lexington High School, Weston High School,Burlington high school and Arlington High School.

Mechanics is the basis of physics, physics is the basis of most fields of application, particularly in engineering. In addition to fundamental concepts, the study of physics develops the ability to think mathematically, and apply mathematical methods to many problems of interest, including outside of physics. Physics often provides a context for visualizing mathematical constructs and operations, which in turn feed back into a better understanding of the physics. For this reason, the concurrent study of mathematics and physics is synergistic in its effects and should always be preferred if i [more]

As an undergraduate and graduate student in physics, I taught physics (mechanics and electromagnetism) in several modes: a recitation instructor, teaching assistant, and tutor. 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 rol [more]

I am a graduate of Boston College with degrees in Physics and Mathematics. I worked in an experimental physics research group for 3 years. I now work in applied physics at Harvard Medical School. I am enrolled in Masters coursework at the Harvard University physics department. Math Qualifications: I scored a 790/800 on my math SAT. I scored a 780/800 on my math GRE. I have a degree in mathematics from Boston College focused in pure math. I have experience tutoring high school level math th... [more]
