"I hold a PhD in Physics with 6 years of post-doctoral research and teaching experience. I have been tutoring intermediate and advanced Math and Physics topics for 15 years. This solid foundation and my gift for explaining the difficult and abstract in novel and easy-to-understand ways means that together the student and I will dig into concepts and understand them on a deeper level. This approach avoids the so-called "memorization trap", which may help the student pass an exam or a single homework assignment, but is ultimately not an effective way to learn.

I offer a free one-hour session for us to gauge if we'll be a good match and I ask for 24 hours notice of a cancellation. I am responsive, punctual, and professional - and sometimes funny (if you appreciate math humor!).

I love tutoring because I love this stuff. And sharing it with students, helping them find those "Eureka!" moments that bring them success in their class work and exam preparation, is a special kind of reward, all on its own.

I look forward to hearing from you and being your learning partner!" less...
