I am a French student at Loyola University Chicago. I have an extensive background teaching and tutoring others, especially in ESL, English, French, and special education. I also have additional experience tutoring many other subjects, such as Spanish, elementary education, biology, pre-calculus, essay writing, and history. I have a true love of tutoring and helping others. I work well with children and adults of all ages. Thank you for sharing your interest in learning!
I love teaching physics because I have always been a scientist at heart, from making trebuchets in the attic, to forcing a thermometer into boiling water to see if it passes 100 degrees centigrade before evaporating, in order to confirm the laws of the physical states of matter. I love spreading my love of physics to others, because it makes me happy when I can have elaborate conversations about simple machines with random individuals. In order to have those conversations, I must first break physics down to a level in which others can easily grasp its concepts. I do this by applying concept decomposition, which is explaining the theory behind all of the abstract formulas and laws that riddle classical physics. Let's stop letting physics surprise us, and let's surprise it when you ace your electrostatics test, and 'Flummox Physics'.
~ I am a distinguished graduate with Summa Cum Laude honors from Ivy Tech College. I make it my duty to break down many of the complexities in math and science that have been plaguing students since the beginning of time. I have years of experience, and have taught several middle-school and high-school students math, science and ACT/SAT prep who have went on to make 180 degree turns in their grades under my instruction. And because I have worked with such a vast diversity of people over the span of 16 countries throughout the world, I have developed the patience and understanding that is crucial in producing stellar students. And age is never a problem with me, as I've helped several post-graduate students straighten out their grievances in math and science. I am majoring in mechanical ...
No matter what the concept or problem is, I describe the pathway to understanding it so that it becomes as intuitive and clear as anything. This is a promise. I know the pitfalls and ambiguities which prevent people from understanding concepts in physics, and I know how to get around them. Physics may sometimes seem as if the physical situations, formulas, and concepts don't have a clear connection with each other. I will explain how to make sense of it all.
I have five years of experience tutoring physics. I got a perfect score on the SAT subject test in physics and 5's on three AP Physics tests.
No matter what the concept or problem is, I describe the pathway to understanding it so that it becomes as intuitive and clear as anything. This is a promise. I know the pitfalls and ambiguities which prevent people from understanding concepts in math and the sciences, and I know how to get around them. I explain every concept in straightforward and totally plain language to describe the relationships between all of the moving parts in math and science subjects. I use familiar analogies as needed to paint a picture of the models students should imagine to successfully solve problems and wrap their heads around the concepts. After learning with me, you will be able to navigate any problem because you will know the subject backwards and forwards, from the ground up. I have five years of ...
As a physics major, I'm quite confident teaching basic physics. I work to make sure students understand the fundamentals of the science, not simply to how to use equations. Ideally, the student will become more confident in his/her problem solving abilities, not just the knowledge of a specific branch of the science.
I am a recently graduated IIT student with a degree in physics and a minor in applied math, and will soon be attending DePaul for a masters in applied math. I've worked at the Musuem of Science and Industry, where I taught science programs to a variety of people, from elementary school kids to adults. Currently I'm tutoring with Sylvan Learning part time, where I'm teaching algebra to high school students. I'm currently studying acting and improvisation in my spare time, in addition to my other hobbies. I'm comfortable teaching basic math (algebra, calculus etc), physics, and could probably also help with ACT math. I can be flexible with rates depending on the situation, and can teach at your home if it's around 30 minutes away by CTA from where I live. I can also teach at my ...
I have a Ph.D. in Physics from Vanderbilt University and received one of the most prestigious postdoctoral fellowships to carry out independent scientific and education research through the University of Chicago Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics. I am deeply passionate about teaching and have over a decade of experience. I truly believe that everyone is capable of learning physics. Science doesn't have to be scary or intimidating, you just need the right teacher!!!
Hi, I'm Doug! I have a PhD in Physics from Vanderbilt University and have been teaching/tutoring all levels of physics & astronomy for over a decade, most recently at the University of Chicago Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics. I also give lectures to the general public at the Adler Planetarium. I am super laid back and easy to get along with, and I am deeply passionate about making physics and astronomy accessible and understandable to people of all ages and backgrounds.
