"I have had 1 year of experience with one-on-one tutoring at Merced Community College (mostly tutoring lower division math), 3 semesters of experience teaching a supplemental instruction class in General Physics (Physics I w/ Calculus) at SFSU, and also have experience tutoring peers and students privately that have been referenced to me. What I love about tutoring is seeing those 'Ah Ha!' moments and epiphanies once an idea sets in with a student. All tutees have been happy with my tutoring (as far as Iíve been told) and many of my tutees have come to me via word of mouth. I really get joy out of someone developing an understanding of a subject that they didn't have before. I also find it incredibly important to learn different ways of looking at problems so that in the future when different problems come about the student can have the mindset to approach/analyze a problem and see how to deal with it. Lastly I always stress that the answer to a problem makes sense in the end as understanding why we got to the final answer and not how we got to the answer is SO much more important. Anyway, I have a passion for helping people understand subjects they aren't necessarily comfortable with. I received a math minor with my BS in Astrophysics and thus have a firm understanding of all levels of these subjects. My 1+ years of one-on-one tutoring for Merced College has consisted mostly of these three subjects. I had 3 semesters of experience teaching a supplemental instruction class in General Physics (Physics I w/ Calculus) at SFSU. I received a 4.0 GPA in Physics courses through all of my undergraduate work. I spend a lot of time programming in C and Python for computational Physics projects. I have worked on large physical simulations and have used many different programming methods to solve problems. I am planning on going into a doctoral program for computational Physics. I've tutored people of all different levels of understanding in subjects and am able to describe problems in multiple ways. I like to promote a comfortable environment where we can be relaxed and focus on the subject at hand. I look forward to helping you build a complete understanding of the subjects you are studying." less...
