ExperienceI have taught physics and astronomy since 1990. I have extensive experience working with students in one-on-one settings, and I've taught university courses at all levels of the undergraduate physics curriculum.
My speciality is identifying the student's misconceptions and developing activities and exercises to correct those misconceptions. I am very good at explaining and illustrating difficult concepts. I believe the most important component for success in science and math courses is self-confidence. I place a strong emphasis on helping students feel better about their ability to succeed in their courses.
I can provide comprehensive tutoring services for any level Physics or Astronomy course, from introductory to advanced courses, including courses that require Calculus, computer programming, or experimental or laboratory work. My services can provide critical help for students struggling with homework assignments, preparing for exams, and/or working on experimental or observational projects.
HobbiesI love books, music, and film.
