"Benefit from 700 hours of tutoring experience in the Twinsburg, Solon, Canton, Akron, Garettsville, Newton Falls, Salem and Kent area!

I have worked online with students from: Ohio, Georgia, Illinois, Florida, New Jersey, California and even Puerto Rico!

I come to personal tutoring with a background in physics (both theoretical and experimental). I spent 9 years at two different universities and earned 3 diplomas in physics (B.Sc., M.Sc. written in French and Ph.D. written in English) all financed by scholarships. I spent two years teaching physics in Africa and also spent 2 other years working as a research scientist at a national laboratory in Europe. During my university years, I worked as a teaching assistant for student laboratories in physics and even did some one-to-one tutoring. All along, I admired my teachers and colleagues who always showed me something new to learn.

As for my methods, I like to use definitions and go to the fundamentals, all explained in a concise way. I am more mathematically oriented. I am also an iPad fan and love to use educational software and books on it. Let me show you how much I loved to be a student myself during my studies!

Today, I am Adjunct Faculty with the physics department at Kent State University. I am also married to a faculty member at Kent State University (women in physics are still a rarity!) and we have a son in college.

I started tutoring with WyzAnt in September 2010. Since then I have built a U.S. curriculum in:

. Mathematica and the Wolfram Language

. homeschooling Middle School math

. physics (HS and graduate college level, MCAT physics and physics for the allied health)

. statistics (college level, HAWKES learning system for MHA)

. precalculus (HS)
