My methodology revolves around improving students' confidence by helping them develop their problem solving skills. I do this by giving them clues to the next step but prompting them to discover what it is. Then, I review the problem in full, explaining why I asked the questions I did and how to use similar reasoning on similar problems. I focus on identifying types of problems and the methods used to solve specific problem types, while giving a student strategies for facing new problem types.
I have been a conscientious student my whole life and I studied physics (and math) in college.
I have taught 2 different students privately as well as 50-100 different students in the physics help center at the Univerity of New Hampshire.
I improved both the confidence and the grades of previous students through helping with both test-taking coaching and homework review.
I will only charge extra for travel, just enough to cover the travel expenses.

Evin has tutored me in both math and astronomy. He is a very patient tutor and takes care to use a variety of methods to ensure I understand all of the material. He is very aware of different learning styles and does a great job of adapting his methods to suit diverse needs. I recommend Evin because he helped me understand the fundamentals of math and astronomy and encouraged me to think beyond the textbook!
