The Keys to Understanding a Subject: Fundamentals and Problem Solving

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 role is to insure that the student is proficient in both parts of learning th...

Algebra 2


Calculus

As an undergraduate and graduate student in physics, applied mathematics, including calculus, differential equations, and linear algebra, was one of the main tools used to solve problems. When teaching physics, if the student was not comfortable with the math needed to understand the material, I filled in the gaps.


Physics

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


Precalculus


Astronomy

As an undergraduate and graduate student in physics, my specialty was astrophysics. I was also the teaching assistant for several planetary science classes.


SAT Math


C

I developed and taught "A Crash Course in C" at MIT for 6 years. It was a 16-hour class covering all of the language. I also used C for my graduate school research and at my job, so I can give real-world context when tutoring.


Computer Programming

I developed and taught "A Crash Course in C" at a university for 6 years. It was a 16-hour class covering all of the language. I used C, Perl, and Python for my graduate school research and at my job, as a software development manager, so I can give real-world context when tutoring.


Python

To do part of my job as a software development manager, I taught myself Python, building on other languages and general programming skills. Having taught myself, and then used it extensively, puts me in a good position to tutor others.
