With about 9 years of experience as a Physics Teacher, one of my passions in life is the opportunity to share knowledge constantly, as well as, to help individuals eager to improve even when some details appear to be insignificant. At the age of 19, I formally started working as a professor of Exact Sciences at the Stephen W. Hawking Institute in Ecuador, my home country. We all should be determined to find an objective/career that would be our passion and reflects our life goal as well. This perspective encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone to move to USA thanks to an Ecuadorian scholarship which financed the commencement of my journey in Environmental Eng. focusing on Nanotechnology at Vincennes Univ. IN. There, I had a training at different Departments as a STEM, English and Spanish tutor; which eventually, gave me the chance to learn about the teaching-learning process of Higher Level Physics Classes from Basic Classes as General Physics I (included Lab.) ,to Physics for Scientists and Engineers I, II (included Lab.); besides other Engineering classes like Statics, Dynamics,Thermodynamics, etc, from 2015-2018. This past year, I had the chance to gain experience as a Physics professor for students of all ages, with which I realized that being a bilingual professional gives me a peculiar characteristic about my teaching techniques. Assuredly, obstacles really do not matter when we strive for more knowledge and innovation because the universe always falls in love with a stubborn soul. So let's get started, all ages are welcome!.

Finding a good physics teacher/tutor, for some odd reason, is perhaps more challenging than physics itself. Physics is actually quite fun when you have someone who can effectively communicate the more complex and counter-intuitive truths about the way our universe works. As a physics tutor, my job is not to show off how much I know, but rather it's to help you find your understanding of the material and become great at it yourself. I do this by 1) not assuming you should "just know" how to properly set up a particular problem 2) not expecting you to "just get" why a particular phenomenon is the way it is 3) by asking you questions about what may be confusing or counter-intuitive, and using various approaches to explaining it until we find the one that works for your unique way of thinking about physical laws and properties.

I am a lifelong educator with a passion for helping students reach their potential in science and math. I'm an astrophysicist by training (PhD from MIT) and taught high school physics and math for 8 years. I love working one-on-one with students and asking the right questions to lead students to figure out solutions for themselves rather than telling them exactly what to do. I've worked with middle school, high school, and college students in math courses ranging from pre-algebra to multivariable calculus. As a tutor, I work to meet students where they are and guide them through problems at the right level to build their confidence to work independently. I love helping students with physics problems and take great joy in helping students see the beauty of mathematics through the lens of applying it to the physical world. I have a special passion for astronomy and did research in cosmology for my PhD and can tutor in topics up to graduate level in astrophysics. In my spare time, I enjoy exploring nature, working on creative projects, and snuggling with my miniature dachshund. I'm eager to get to know potential students and would love to hear from you!

My lesson was very helpful and she was very nice to work with. We worked on an assignment that I was struggling with and now understand how to do it.

Haliah (Physics lessons with Jennifer W.)

My daughter could not praise Emily enough. Comments: "always had a lot of ways to explain something when I didn't understand. She could change her teaching style depending on what I needed to learn.

Wendy (Physics lessons with Emily W.)

Super good at explaining why things worked and making sure that I knew how to do everything. Going into my test tomorrow with confidence that I will get a 100%.
