Terry's Profile Page

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 solve problems as a team, drawing from them whenever possible the relevant knowledge they need to solve the problem. This enables students to build on what they already know and helps increase their confidence in their problem solving skills. If you are seeking help with a business-related subject, you should kn...

Algebra 1


Algebra 2

Physics relies heavily on mathematics, particularly algebra and trigonometry. I am familiar with the difficulties many students have with this subject and have helped many hone their math skills while learning physics.


Calculus

Physics makes extensive use of both differential and integral calculus. My experience in this field means that I can offer students practical perspectives in the applications of the subject as well as the mechanics of problem solving.


Microsoft Excel

I have used Excel extensively, both in my tax preparation business and in the laboratory. I am highly familiar with the graphing and computational features available within the program.


Physics

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.


Prealgebra


Precalculus


Trigonometry

As a physics teacher, I have extensive experience with the practical applications of trigonometry as well as an extensive theoretical knowledge of the subject.


Astronomy


Physical Science

I taught a physical science class for non-science majors for many years. I have extensive experience with a conceptual approach to teaching physics, chemistry, and astronomy to students with minimal backgrounds in math.


Managerial Accounting

Although I do not have a degree in accounting, I have extensive experience as a result of my work preparing corporate tax returns.


Financial Accounting

Although I do not have a degree in accounting, I have extensive experience as a result of my work preparing corporate tax returns.


Differential Equations

I have a Ph.D in physics and have taken courses in both ordinary and partial differential equations. Both subjects are used extensively in theoretical physics. Many of the classic methods of solving differential equations are illustrated by specific physical problems such as damped harmonic motion and AC electrical circuits.


QuickBooks

I have used QuickBooks in my tax preparation business since 2005. I use it to do bookkeeping for clients as well as preparing tax returns and adjusting entries for business clients using the Accountant's copy feature within QuickBooks. Corporate returns generally require preparation of a balance sheet from the QuickBooks file as well as a statement of income and expense.


Tax Accounting

I am an enrolled agent with 30 years of experience in income tax preparation. Enrolled agents are tax specialists who receive their accreditation directly from the IRS. I have extensive experience in both individual and corporate tax preparation and also prepare partnership and fiduciary returns.
