Viewing credentialed Physics tutors in Tucson
"I received a BS in Astrophysics at New Mexico Tech (2001) and worked at the National Solar Observatory in Tucson for several years before pursuing graduate studies. As a graduate student teaching assistant, I have worked extensively in the classroom. My experience ranges from delivering lectures and helping students understand important scientific concepts to working with students on a one-on-one basis. Many of the students I have worked with are non-science majors and finding a way to explain difficult scientific concepts to individual students is something I find rewarding." ...

"One of my favorite applications of these subjects is tutoring. It is my philosophy that everything is easy once you find the right way to look at it, and that’s not the same for everyone, but helping students find that deeper understanding and perspective is one of the most rewarding sensations I’ve experienced. I tutored kids informally throughout high school and then more officially with National Honors Society. My senior year I worked at the franchise Mathnasium as a professional math tutor with kids ranging from kindergarten to college." ...

" Having taken several standardized tests throughout the years, including the SAT, ACT, and MCAT, and a variety of different courses as an Economics major, pre-medicine student, I feel I can help in many different subject areas. I've served in a variety of tutoring roles over the years, but the one I am most proud of was when I helped a 9th grader in algebra a few years ago. As I worked with him throughout the semester, I was able to raise his grade from an "F" to a "B" by the end of the semester. During that time, I really focused on making sure my student understood the basics and fundamental processes before slowly moving ...

" I have worked in a lot of teaching roles since - summer camp nature counselor, graduate assistant in lab classes, private school curriculum developer and teacher, public school teaching aid, and lecturing fellow in human biology for non-majors. Several times I was asked by some professor to deliver his scheduled lecture topic, while he was out of town, to his upper division class. I have spent thousands of hours teaching people academic material, individually and in groups, in primary, secondary, and college classes. I can explain anything, to anyone, once I know where they are starting from." ...

"My pre-medical curriculum allowed me a chance to “learn by teaching” and experience multiple learning types in collaborative small-groups. Despite my strong math and science background, my first love is writing. I have helped students develop their writing skills and improve their reading comprehension as a Kaplan instructor. I have also worked individually with students to shape specific writing projects, including personal statements for college applications and persuasive, thesis-driven essays for high school and college classes. I enjoy making abstract, complicated concepts accessible to students—I love the moment ...
