I am currently a physics instructor at Front Range Community College at the Larimer campus. I began tutoring in high school. I studied physics and math at the George Washington State University (Bachelors in Science) while continuing to tutor throughout my years there. After this, I joined the graduate program at Colorado State University where I received my M.S. in Physics. I have had over 4 years of teaching experience at CSU, which include many hours in tutoring, instructing physics labs, ... [more]

Algebra 1

I have been tutoring math, particularly Algebra, Calculus, Trigonometry, Geometry, since I was in high school, taking more of a teaching role in grad school. All these years of teaching have helped develop my understanding and skill at teaching math. I find that in order to progress, one must master the fundamentals. I hope to help students solidify there understanding of the basics as we learn new subjects. With a minor in math and B.S. and M.S. in physics, I have been working with and utilizing various levels of mathematics (including Algebra, Calculus, Trigonometry, Geometry) for many years.

Algebra 2

I have been tutoring math, particularly Algebra 1 and Algebra 2, since I was in high school, taking more of a teaching role in grad school. More specifically, I have spent a number of semesters teaching in algebra based physics courses. In these courses, I help students review and utilize algebra 1 and algebra 2. I All these years of teaching have helped develop my understanding and skill at teaching algebra. I find that in order to progress, one must master the fundamentals.

Calculus

I have been tutoring math since I was in high school, taking more of a teaching role in grad school. As an undergrad, I focused more on tutoring math/physics students in Calculus. In grad school, I have spent a number of semesters teaching in calculus based physics courses. In these courses, I help students review/learn calculus and how it is utilized in subjects such as physics. I All these years of teaching have helped develop my understanding and skill at teaching calculus. I find that in order to progress, one must master the fundamentals.

Physics

I have studied physics at universities for the past 8 years (for B.S. and M.S. degrees) and have tutored for most of that time. In grad school I was involved in teaching introductory physics courses for over 10 straight semesters (summers included). This included tutoring and running labs and lecture style recitations for conceptual, algebra, and calculus based physics courses. Having taught these various classes, I've developed the skills and understanding to help students master physics themselves.

Prealgebra

Precalculus

Trigonometry

Astronomy

As an undergraduate, I took multiple classes in Astronomy. As a graduate student I was picked to T.A. the intro astronomy courses. I can be especially helpful in the physics aspects of astronomy as that is my primary field, and I have tutored physics and astronomy students for a number of years.

GED

I started tutoring math while in high school up through my years as an undergraduate and graduate student. These many years of tutoring/teaching have helped me to develop my teaching skills and my understanding of how to help students at various levels of experience.

Differential Equations

Differential equations are a key component to any work in physics, thus being a primary concept throughout my studies. In addition to an M.S. in physics, I obtained a math minor, primarily by adding multiple differential equations courses to my studies. These included Ordinary DE, Partial DE, and both an undergraduate and graduate level Mathematics of Physics course. Differential equations are ideal for representing the evolution of physical quantities, thus as a physics grad student, differential equations are inseparable from most of the work I've done.
