...of physics, I am well versed in all grade school and college-level mathematics. The teaching style I have developed through my own experience, as well as keeping up with the results of physics education research, follows a Socratic principle. Students should be carefully guided as they pursue their own understanding, and should be able to experience for themselves the fun of figuring out the natural world. I also believe that physics and mathematics are languages,...

As the oldest of three siblings, I have spent a lot of time huddled around math and science textbooks, explaining concepts and helping my brother and sister see problems the way I do. I believe strongly that the student gains nothing from the tutor who does their work for them, so I go out of my way to make sure each student understands that grasping the concepts is...

...well as presenting topics in a personal and engaging manner is of utmost importance in tutoring. In addition to tutoring, I work as a professional freelancing musician, a tutor for inner-city kids with Tutors for All, and teach music lessons privately and at EKS Music School in Quincy. In addition to teaching, I enjoy playing tennis, table tennis, a variety of other sports, hiking, camping, reading, and exploring museums and art galleries.... I strive to adapt to each individual student's needs and method of learning. I think it is important to give the student opportunities to think critically for problem-solving and create an environment of openness for questions and discussions.

Bearing that in mind, I use a Socratic method to draw out ideas and key words and phrases when helping students come up with responses to creative writing essay questions, i.e., the kind given on SATs, ACTs and on college essays. Usually, by the end of the session, they find out that they need a lot less help than they thought! I have also done a fair amount of math and...
