I have taught physics and math for 16 years as a certified teacher in Pennsylvania. I have been awarded the Teacher Impact award by WGAL TV-8. I have previous practical experience working in the field of engineering. I am a swimming and water polo coach for age-group/high school teams. I have four children (2 boys, 2 girls) between 9th and college right now. I am comfortable teaching all ranges of ages and abilities. Usually, students are just stumbling over an initial 'speed bump' tha... [more]

Calculus

I am PA Certified in grades 7-12 math and physics. I have taught AP BC Calculus II in high school. I have a BS in Electrical Engineering where Calculus was used regularly. I then have a MAT Physics. The physics courses used calculus all the time. I know where all the topics in calculus actually get used.

Geometry

I am PA Certified in grades 7-12 math and physics. I achieved within the top 15% nationwide score on my Praxis exam. I have taught all levels of math in high school, from Algebra 1 through Calculus. Geometry is a fun subject with multidimensional thinking required.

Physics

I have taught all levels of physics, from General, to Academic, to Honors, to AP C. I am PA Teacher Certified in Physics, with multiple years of high school teaching experience.

Prealgebra

I have taught algebra 1 through calculus in high school. I am keenly aware of the initial difficulties students have coming into algebra for the first time. I can help you master the skills you need to succeed in your prealgebra course, that will then pave the way for success in formal algebra and beyond.

Astronomy

I am PA certified in Physics and Math. I have taken two college courses in astronomy. I own my own telescope, and track amateur radio satellites as a hobby. I have used astronomy labs in my physics course. I traveled to Aricebo in Puerto Rico with a NASA grant. I took a graduate course at the Green Bank Telescope (100 m radio dish) in West Virginia.

SAT Math

I am PA Teacher Certified in Math. I have taught Algebra 1, Algebra II and Trigonometry in High School.

ACT Math

I am PA Teacher Certified in Math. I have taught Algebra 1, Algebra II and Trigonometry in High School.

Study Skills

I have 10 years of teaching 9th-12th grade in math and science. I regularly helped students after school. Often they could not get over a simple 'speed bump' that I could help them see how their notes or book had the key. I encourage students to keep good summary sheets prior to a test. These combine to study for a final. And these are of great use in the 'next class' for which their current class is a prerequisite.
