Expert Physics Teacher with 7 years Experience in the Classroom Offering Summer Tutoring

Methodology

My approach is friendly and personalized, building on student's existing skills and knowledge base to increase their confidence in their own abilities. I encourage students to practice problem solving and to be "hands-on" with the material as much as possible. I utilize direct instruction in small chunks, only as necessary in between practicing the material.

Background

I am a professional classroom teacher with 7 years experience teaching math and physics to 8th-12th graders, from conceptual physics through AP Physics C Mechanics and E&M. have a Masters in Education, and a BA in Physics and Astronomy. My AP students have consistently earned average scores on the AP exam above a 4.
