Award-Winning Physics Tutors in Washington, DC
Craig "I am a recent graduate of Wake Forest University where I received my Bachelor of Science in Mathematical-Economics. I began tutoring Economics through my university’s tutoring center, but soon branched out to local junior high and high schools where I focused on tutoring Math. While I always enjoyed tutoring undergraduate students, I found great satisfaction in teaching Math to struggling teenagers..."
Laura "I'm a graduate of St. John's College and Georgetown Law. Teaching is in my blood-my mother is a teacher, and she instilled in me the love of helping someone reach his or her potential with compassion and enthusiasm. I have been tutoring since middle school and I don't ever plan on stopping! My favorite subject to tutor is the LSAT, but I also LOVE English, US History, and World History..."

Jerilynn "... While I was studying for my physics degree I worked as a Teaching Assistant and tutor for the Math and Physics departments, working with students in math, physics, and astronomy. I like to tailor my teaching style to a student’s learning style since no one learns in exactly the same way. In addition to helping students understand mathematical and physical concepts, I like to work on problem solving techniques that are easily translatable into any subject and field of interest..."
Brooke "...I tutor Algebra, Pre-Algebra, Elementary Math, Trigonometry, Chemistry and Biomedical Engineering. My favorite subject area to tutor is math because I like helping people experience the triumph in conquering it. For me, tutoring is an opportunity to help an individual knock down barriers standing in their way..."
Jordan "...While I tutor a number of subjects, math and physics are my favorites. I was a teaching assistant at Duke University for several semesters, and helped my peers with learning physics, material science, and engineering - so algebra now seems like a breeze! I'm a naturally good test-taker who’s developed several of my own test-taking strategies and love passing them on to others - I think half of acing a test is just understanding how to answer the questions. I love the outdoors and am an avid amateur photographer..."

Alexa "...I tutor for the SAT, ACT, several SAT subject tests (including Literature, Physics, US History, and Math I & II), and academic writing/college essays. I love encouraging students and showing them that they can succeed in subjects they find difficult. I also volunteer as a college guidance counselor in Philadelphia public high schools where I help students realize their potential and navigate the college application and financial aid processes..."
Mrunali "Though I was a Biology and Mathematics Joint Major at McGill University in Montreal, my variety of extracurricular experience formatted and solidified my interest in education. My work with BrainReach, in which neuroscience students create and present lessons to elementary school students in high need schools, especially contributed to my passion for education. I have tutored and/or taught a variety of ages from 4-21, as well as a variety of subjects including all sorts of Mathematics, Sciences, and Test Preparation..."

Akash "... My passion for teaching is apparent right away. I think it is easy for my students to stay engaged and focused. I have an encouraging presence as a teacher and think that this goes a long way in helping students learn. I have taken, and done well on, a variety of standardized tests and have come to understand universal and recurring concepts for testing..."

Orenthral "...Every Sunday night we would have sessions to make sure our students were back in town ready for the next week. And this was not mandatory, thereby instilling self-discipline in our participants. During graduate school, I also tutored fellow graduate students. At this level the focus is on sharpening skills that are already there..."
Andrea "...Throughout college and medical school, I tutored and taught both younger students and peers. I also have experience with curriculum development at the high school and graduate school levels, including a published, peer-reviewed medical school curriculum. While I tutor a broad range of subjects in the mathematics and sciences, I am most passionate about Calculus and Chemistry..."
