...my first college, where I tutored groups of college-aged students in math and physics. Since I began tutoring, I've loved the connections I was able to make with students, as well as the joy of watching each student become more confident and proud of themselves as they work through the subjects they initially had struggled with. I also love challenging myself in determining ways I can modify my teaching and tutoring methods to the many...
Ever since bringing refugee children up to and beyond grade-level mathematics while tutoring in the mid-2000s, I have always been motivated by a spirit of service to community, society, and humanity at large. Teaching and tutoring is one small but essential part of that ethos.

Along with working as an engineer, I've been a part-time math and science tutor. My passion for...
...am in a position to offer others an insight into these subjects that I wasn't given. I've found that one of the best ways to introduce students to a new subject or idea is through motivating examples or real world problems. I prefer not to give students the answer, but gently lead them to it, so that in the end they gain some satisfaction in reaching the answer by their own critical thinking.
...pretty evenly skilled in both fields) First, off I have a degree in Physics, graduated with a 4.0 (in a 4.0 GPA system), and was on the Dean's List. On top of that, I was at the top of my class in all my mathematics courses and was known to help other students when they had difficulties. I was accepted into classes that were usually not available to my grade level due to my aptitude...

General Relativity Tutoring FAQ
Anyone tasked with making sense of the concepts that underlie general relativity and the practical and theoretical implications of this theory can easily become overwhelmed by it for a number of reasons. First of all, general relativity relies heavily on a previous theory, the theory of special relativity. Special relativity deals with the idea that measurements of time and space are relative to an observer's specific context, and provides a basis for the energy-mass equivalence equation and for the concept of the space-time continuum. These are complex ideas to be understood before one approaches general relativity at all!
General relativity's concepts are of a comparative level of complexity: the theory deals with the ways in which mass, motion, and forces like gravity play out on the backdrop of special relativity's space-time continuum. In particular, the theory elucidates the ways in which space-time affects matter and matter affects space-time. General relativity has been confirmed by a variety of observed phenomena, such as gravitational lensing, gravitational waves, and redshift. Additionally, global positioning satellite systems wouldn't work without taking the principles of general relativity into account, as the satellites these systems rely upon require extremely accurate time measurements that are affected by the movement of the satellite around Earth.
General relativity is thus a fascinating subject, because it runs the gamut from almost purely theoretical concepts to practical observations and applications. However, this dual theoretical and practical nature of the theory can cause trouble for students. Whether you are trying to learn the principles of general relativity on your own out of personal curiosity, in a formal classroom environment, or in preparation for cosmological research, a tutor can help you make sense of this theory's principles through one-on-one tutoring.
General relativity tutors are subject experts who have the teaching skills to help you make sense of the most unintuitive facets of the theory. Your tutor can create a customized learning plan designed to address just the aspects of general relativity you don't understand. If you need to review some of the aspects of special relativity in order to master ideas involved in your general relativity studies, your tutor can help you gain the foundational knowledge you need to progress in your mastery of general relativity.
One of the greatest benefits of supplementing your education with private tutoring is that you can control the pace and direction of every lesson. Unlike lectures taught in the formal classroom, you can slow down the pace of your private lessons, ensuring that you spend enough time on various problematic aspects within the theory of relativity. Conversely, so that you are able to study in an efficient manner, you can also completely skip past material that you already understand.
Your tutor understands that you are busy, and that you have prior work or studying commitments. Because of this, they are happy to meet you at a time that is convenient for you, even on the weekend. Furthermore, you can choose to study in the comfort of your own home, at your college campus, or anywhere else in the area. If you don't want to meet face-to-face, simply request that your tutor conducts lessons over the Internet. Whatever your learning preferences are, your tutor is happy to oblige.
Varsity Tutors can help you connect with a tutor who will work to design your lessons so that they meet your specific needs and address your specific concerns, making each of your sessions extremely efficient. Don't waste time struggling with the complexities of general relativity on your own when custom-tailored help is available.

Recent General Relativity Tutoring Session Notes
The student and I completed the review questions at the end of chapter three of his biology text in preparation for his upcoming test. We discussed the topics of nitrogen/carbon fixation, the water cycle, the ecosystem, and food webs.
Today we worked on a homework worksheet on gas exchange in the lungs and transport of CO2 to and from the body via the cardiovascular system. We discussed implications of different responses to pH and CO2 levels. Afferent and efferent signals and negative feedback loops in response to changing environments in the cardiovascular system.
The student and I reviewed for her test on Tuesday. She asked for clarification on the founder's effect and bottle-necking. Using the beetle population example, we discussed how these mechanism would affect the allele frequencies in the gene pool. We also reviewed classification of organisms, and why organisms are classified as such.
The student had a test on genetics the following day, so we spent the time reviewing the study sheet from last week and re-covering areas where he had trouble. In general he understands most of the concepts really well and is good at drawing and interpreting Punnett squares and family pedigrees. His main weak area is still in understanding codominance and incomplete dominance. I tried to diagram it for him a few different ways and hopefully he can keep the distinction and how to use it clear in his mind - if he understands that and reads all questions carefully, he should do fine on the test.
We reviewed for the student's upcoming test by reviewing:
- Slime Molds
- Bacteria of
- Definition of
I left the student with several sets of flash cards to use for reviewing for the exam.
Today the student wanted to complete a worksheet on embryogenesis that she had not finished in class this afternoon, so we worked on that first. The worksheet involved drawing a starfish embryo through various stages of embryogenesis. She did well. We then worked on the monohybrid worksheet, which contained a long set of 1-2 sentence problems. These problems described traits, gave two individuals with certain phenotypes, and asked the reader to draw the Punnett square which would result from the breeding of the two individuals. She did well with that. We also spent time using colors and visuals clarifying several concepts.
