Recent physics PhD graduate offering part time tutoring in math and physics in Davis, CA

Methodology

My teaching primarily is focused on students describing their current impression on the course they are seeking help with. What areas they are finding difficult and what help they are looking for from a tutor. My lessons will primarily be focused on directly teaching if the student feels behind or lost in a subject, or help with homework and/or test preparation, where I'll observe and guide the student assisting and correcting when needed.

Background

I am a Postdoctoral researcher at UC Davis. I graduated from Colorado School of Mines with a PhD in Applied Physics with an undergraduate GPA of 3.66 and a graduate GPA of 3.75. I have previously worked as a teachers assistant in classes ranging from freshman physics to graduate level physics.
