Award-Winning Physics Tutors in Tucson, AZ
Hannah "...After graduation, I volunteered at a K-12 school in a little community called La Argelia Alta in Quito, Ecuador. I spent two months teaching Math, Science, and English to both students and adults in addition to helping with the community soccer team and working in the church. I am currently pursuing a Masters degree in Cellular and Molecular Medicine at the University of Arizona..."
Ryan "Hi, my name is Ryan Chang, a recent graduate of the UofA in Molecular Biology and Music pursuing a career in the field of medicine. During college, I had the fortunate privilege of discovering I have a passion for teaching helping others. Below is a brief outline of my tutoring experience..."
Gregg "... This was a hard road, where I first did poorly in math and then learned how to study the subject and where difficulties really come from, and turned that into success. It is these lessons I have used to create curricula for math classes, and I use them to tutor students. I also have a broad range of interests, studied linguistics for awhile, and did a summer program in scientific Russian in Novosibirsk in the USSR in 1989..."
Johnita "... In recent years, I have had the opportunity to work as a paraprofessional working one on one with a number of special education students, and tutoring third graders with low literacy scores to improve reading skills. Since November 2011, I have been working as the science teacher at a private boarding school for girls. A lot of my work there has involved working individually with students in chemistry, physics, biology, earth science, various math classes, and a variety of electives..."
Philip "My higher education was initially via an engineering apprenticeship I completed with Rolls Royce in Bristol, England. I have a lifetime of experience in aerospace engineering where I have extensively applied the mathematics and science I now teach. During the latter years of my engineering career, I obtained a BA in Math Education and an MA is Science Education from Western Governors University and went on to teach in High School for 4 years and then 2 years as a Math Mentor for the Teachers College of Western Governors..."
Brian "... I found it rewarding to work with my students so they could achieve their maximum potential. Presently, I am working on some coding projects, primarily in the Ruby-on-Rails environment, a language that I am currently brushing up on. I believe in a collaborative approach to learning, working with students to inspire in them a genuine thirst for knowledge. While I particularly enjoy tutoring in government and public policy, I also enjoy subjects as diverse as chemistry, biology, mathematics, economics, literature, and geology. In my off time, I enjoy downhill skiing, cooking, hiking, reading, and games..."
Kelly "...I understand the difficulty that students face when learning a new subject. I believe that finding a way to relate to the subject that you're trying to learn, increases your ability to absorb new information. I want to pass along the "tricks of the trade," that I have learned over the years, to help other students succeed..."
Alex "I graduated from Rice University in Houston, Texas with a BA in Anthropology and a BA in Gender Studies. I am currently pursuing my PhD in Gender Studies at the University of Arizona. I have 7 years of experience tutoring math and science..."
Maxwell "...Last fall, I was a general chemistry preceptor at the U of A Department of Chemistry. I have been tutoring chemistry at the high school level for the past year and enjoyed it tremendously. I'm a great tutor because I interact well with my students as opposed to merely giving them the information..."
Mattius "...It takes a lot of hard work to get a pupil interested in the core subjects necessary for today's educated workforce, but I hope that through my experiences, those who struggle with Middle School, High School, and College coursework--not to mention the daunting task of college applications--can benefit immensely. I am committed to professionalism as a tutor, and I guarantee visible progress in my pupils; but I'm a regular person, too. In between Chemistry labs or Literature classes, you might find me reading a book on Heritage Hill, or walking my dog with my fiance. I am a recent graduate of the University of Arizona, wherein I achieved Summa Cum Laude status with degrees in English and Russian (with a minor in Pre-Med), but I have been active in accumulating useful experience in editing and writing scientific and nonfiction content..."
