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..."

Thomas "...My favorite teaching tools include using real-world examples and simple demonstrations to illustrate seemingly abstract concepts, such as atmospheric pressure and barometry. Hand-in-hand with scientific literacy, I encourage excellence in verbal and written communication. In editing, proofreading, and teaching writing to others, I strive to improve clarity, precision, and conciseness..."
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..."
Duke Univeristy - BSE, Mechanical Engineering
Abraham "I started tutoring French to students in lower grades when I was in high school at 17 years of age. It was the first afterschool program in my high school. I provided homework assistance and performed other tasks as instructed by my two French teachers..."

William "... I tutored SAT prep, a subject that causes ire in the eyes of many a college applicant, but was honestly one of the more "fun" parts of my application. It was great to see how my students could eventually come around to seeing standardized tests as a puzzle, rather than a chore. I've since spent several semesters as an Introductory Chemistry TA during my undergrad at Amherst College, where I majored in Biochemistry and Biophysics, magna cum laude..."
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..."
University of Marlyand - BS, Neurobiology/Physiology
Dayna "... On a monthly basis, I visited EXCEL Academy in Maryland to teach rudimentary anatomy and physiology, and to spark student’s interest in the medical field. At another recent event, I was ecstatic to participate in a medical student panel at McKinley Technology High School. There, I spoke about the challenging yet rewarding path to a career in medicine. I have already done much to uphold what I believe are my core ideals: understanding, mentorship, and leadership..."
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..."
