I'm open to teaching any level of math or physics. I tend to approach subjects by starting with the fundamentals and carefully setting up the problem. I find that most trouble with a subject comes from instructors skipping steps or trying to avoid introducing a topic thoroughly due to time constraints. I also enjoy finding many different ways of looking at a problem and relating them, since I find this usually generates new insights about the problem.
I also try to keep it light. Physics jokes are pretty great.
I just finished my PhD in physics at University of California Santa Barbara this past September. While I was working on my degree, I had the opportunity to help students in a few different contexts. I was the instructor of record for an upper-division physics elective in my research area. I was the TA for many physics classes, from intro physics through quantum mechanics. In addition to holding section (~20 person mini classes), I also got a great deal of experience tutoring one on one during office hours.
