Lesson Details

Physics

Levels Taught:
High School, College

Physics is the most fundamental of all sciences. It describes the way things work in the real world, so I encourage students to approach it first from an intuitive point of view. With my approach, you will not only do better in any physics course you're taking, but you can also expect to have a much better understanding of the world around you.

Teaching since:
1965

I tutor beginning French, high school and college physics, and mathematics from basic arithmetic through calculus. I home-schooled my own kids—two daughters who are now straight-A students at university, including mathematics.

I first began teaching French in 1965 when I was a 3rd year high school French student, helping other students who were struggling to learn the language. Everyone whom I helped showed great improvement in their comprehension.

I'm a retired physicist and engineer who worked as the senior scientist for a consulting engineering firm. Over the years I have helped many students who were having difficulty with algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and calculus, as well as physics.

I remember what it was like to feel lost and intimidated by math problems that looked difficult. Geometry was easy for me, but algebra was a struggle, until I figured out a fundamental approach that simplified everything. In turn, that approach made it much easier to understand trigonometry.

Similarly, I had a difficult time with high school calculus until I took physics. Once I saw that there was a practical use for the mathematics, it all became clear.

I know what my stumbling blocks were, and how I got past them. That's why I believe I can help anyone who's having a tough time with mathematics, at any level.

Experience

Private Tutoring
Jan 1965 - Jul 2019
Not Applicable

I have been doing private tutoring in French since 1965, and in mathematics since 1983. I also home-schooled my children in mathematics (arithmetic, geometry, algebra, trigonometry, and pre-calculus) from 1994 through 2012, and have provided supplementary math tutoring as needed while they attend college.
