My favorite subject of all, and the one I tutor most often, is physics. The way I see it, there are three types of skills involved in doing physics. 1) conceptual skill: what basic principles are involved here? Write a few sentences in English, qualitatively explaining what you expect to happen. Explain the situation to Grandma, or someone who is smart but has never taken physics. 2) analytical skill: break the problem into steps. What will you do first? What will you do second? Will you set two things equal to each other? 3) mathematical skill: can you solve for x in the bottom of a fracti [more]

Most physics students have the most difficulty knowing where to start. My physics students learn a problem solving strategy that not only helps then know how to start the problem, but also keeps work organized and greatly helps them catch errors before declaring a final answer. This strategy is valid for any level of physics whether it's kinematics, electricity & magnetism or quantum mechanics. It has also been useful for engineers taking statics and dynamics classes. I used this technique throughout many of my physics classes. Most notably, I scored top of my class and in the 93 percentile i [more]

I have been tutoring Physics and Math for over 10 years. I have also taught Calculus and other Applied Math courses; and have been working in the field of Atmospheric Physics. I will help break it down for you and help you to find the handle on any Physics or Math problem. I received a Bachelor's degree in Applied Physics in 1978, and later a Master's degree in Applied Mathematics in 1981, both from the University of Waterloo in Canada. During my Master's program, I was a teaching assistant for both the Calculus and Algebra divisions of the Department of Applied Mathematics, and became the [more]

I am a college graduate who was an RN for 17 years. During that time, I home schooled my three boys for eight years, and just completed being my youngest son's learning coach for online school from 2011 to 2013. I have taught science, math, algebra, history, spelling, language, phonics geometry, math analysis, and many other classes. I have also taken the NCLEX in the past. I was also in the military and scored very well on the ASVAB test. I have taken many college level classes in anatom... [more]

I am currently qualified to teach physics and I have completed Calculus based Physics I and II. Hello Everyone! I recently graduated from college from the United States Naval Academy in May of this year with a degree in Aerospace Engineering. My degree is heavily based on math and science, specifically Calculus, Geometry, Differential Equations, Statics and Dynamics and applied problem solving scenarios. I've always enjoyed helping others with Math since it was something that I had to work hard in to become proficient at. I also enjoy helping others succeed and become confident... [more]

Physics is the study of the fundamental forces in nature and their affect on objects throughout the universe. During my career as a college professor, I taught both lower and upper-division classes in pure and applied physics, including computational methods and core engineering classes such as statics, dynamics, thermodynamics,and mechanics of material. I also have experience teaching engineering fluid mechanics. I am a retired university professor with 27 years experience teaching lower and upper division physics and physical science for non-majors. When tutoring, I work with students to [more]
