ExperienceI received a bachelor's degree in physics and minor in mathematics from Penn State University in December 2014. I also hold a bachelor's degree in civil engineering from Penn State and spent several years working as a Transportation Planner for a local planning commission. Since December 2014 I have been tutoring math and physics courses both in person and online through WyzAnt and various other tutoring sites. I have experience tutoring in subjects including high school and college level physics, calculus, trigonometry, algebra, and basic math skills. I am also able to tutor in SAT/ACT math prep and engineering mechanics courses.
I greatly enjoy tutoring math and physics because it gives me a sense of fulfillment to see students finally understand how to complete a problem after struggling for so long. Math and physics can initially be very difficult to comprehend, but with practice and clear instruction they can actually be fun and interesting. My approach is to stress critical thinking skills and not just memorization. It is important to know the list of steps necessary to solve a problem, but it is even more important to know why each step is needed and how one example problem can be used to understand many other problems. Math and physics are very useful in the real world, so having a grasp on these subjects can be very beneficial. I take great pride in helping students gain the mathematical and scientific knowledge necessary to be successful in whatever field they choose to pursue.
