I love the subject of physics and think that students will love it too as long as they see the logic of it. I think that I can ask the right questions of a student that will lead them in the right direction.
I studied physics at Mary Baldwin College and earned a BA in physics. I received a Masters of Science in physics at the University of Virginia.
I have taught physics at the high school level for more than twenty years. I have taught all the different levels of physics from the Calculus based physics to conceptual physics. I feel like having taught for so long, I have a good idea where students go wrong and hope to be able to lead them in the right directions.
I am so happy to tutor anyone through the first year of college in physics. I believe that I can help the student find the right way to approach physics problems. One can read and understand the chapter and still not be clear on how to approach the problem solving part of physics. I think that for a student having a tutor guide them on how to solve those problems will really increase their enjoyment and confidence in physics.
I do enjoy other activities than teaching physics. I like walking my dog. I like to knit and read.
