How can Newtonian Mechanics tutoring help you succeed?
From classical times to the present day, scientists have been interested in determining laws and equations which accurately describe and predict the movement of matter. Students who are having difficulty with physics laws or equations may find a private tutor can help resolve their issue and put them back on the track to success. Whether the student is taking their first high school physics class and finds themselves confounded by all of the equations with which one must become familiar, or is taking a college lab and could use some help brushing up on calculus-based derivations, Varsity Tutors can help connect them with the best Newtonian mechanics tutor for their needs.
Much of the early impetus to make discoveries in physics came from a desire to explain the motion of planets in the night sky. Kepler's early discovery that planetary orbits were ellipses led to his laws of planetary motion. These continue to inform Newtonian mechanics today. Galileo was also fascinated by motion, performing experiments involving balls rolling down inclined planes to learn about the relationship between distance and acceleration. When Sir Isaac Newton published his original works, he helped the study of motion take a giant step forward by applying calculus to it. He derived numerous equations and formulated his three famous laws. Newtonian mechanics continues to be an important part of a student's physics education, helping them master the laws of motion, related equations, and also learn skills such as equation rearrangement and quantitative modeling of real-life scenarios.
Classical mechanics, alternatively known as Newtonian mechanics, developed from these early discoveries. They, along with quantum mechanics, are the building blocks for modern-day physics. Classical mechanics studies physical laws which describe the motion of bodies influenced by force. This is one of the oldest and most comprehensive subjects in the fields of science, technology, and engineering. Newtonian mechanics describe the motion of objects from the macroscopic to the astronomical, and everything in between. Equations based on these principles deliver accurate results, as long as the object being studied is an object within the accepted size range and the speed at which it moves does not come near the speed of light. Objects which are smaller, or which are traveling faster than the speed of light, are studied with quantum mechanics. If neither are applicable, quantum field theory may be used.
Tutors are knowledgeable in all areas of physics, and are masterful teachers. They are gifted with the ability to clearly explain complex concepts in an understandable way. Mastery of the subject and a variety of teaching skills are necessary for a tutor to be effective. However, far more important is the tutor's ability to connect with the student on a personal level. Good tutors take the time to get to know the student, learn what knowledge they have, what skills they are struggling with, and what their individual learning style is. This information makes it possible for the tutor to focus on presenting new material in a way that will make it more accessible to the student.
Tutors are able to accommodate busy schedules in order to ensure students are able to receive the help they need. They are able to meet in person or online, depending on students' preferences and availability. Popular locations include in the student's home, at libraries, on university campuses, and other public meeting spaces. Days and times that are best for the student or their family can also be accommodated, and tutors are available for evening and weekend sessions.
