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]

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]

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 started tutoring fellow classmates during the latter part of my time in college and continued on a volunteer basis for some time with underserved middle and high school students. What I most enjoy about tutoring is the "ah-ha" moment I see a student experience. I strive to help students understand foundational principles about the subject we're studying. My goal is to allow students to be more self reliant in order to replicate the process of achieving academic success in the future.... [more]

While we make our way through the physical world successfully day to day, an understanding of physics is not as intuitive as expected. Besides teaching concepts, I help students approach problems more effectively and analytically by using units and dimensional analysis. A sound understanding of dimensional analysis can help students work their way through difficult problems quickly and with little stress - a skill that becomes very important on test day! I am a mathematician and scientist through and through! I received B.S. degrees in mathematics and atmospheric science from the University [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]

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]

I have a strong background in physics, for I have a bachelor's degree in the subject and have tutored it both professionally and privately for 2 years. Roughly speaking, physics is the study of nature, and so it is quite feasible for students to gain an intuition for the subject material. Unfortunately, this intuition is never learned by throwing formulas at students, which many professors do. My goal is to help students gain an intuition so that they understand the formulas, which leads to better student performance. [more]

5/5 on AP Physics test Bachelor's in Mechanical Engineering from OU Currently an engineer at Tinker AFB I am a recent graduate of the University of Oklahoma, achieving a Bachelor's of Science in Mechanical Engineering. As that degree ensures I can solve complex equations and understand difficult concepts, my students (and their parents) can rest easy knowing I am giving them the proper information in an easy to learn way. Admittedly, I would not have the ability to teach just by being a student. I have also been a tutor for six years now, beginning my junior year of high school. I have taught [more]
