How can a Physics tutor help you?

If you are planning on working in a STEM-related field, like engineering, astronomy, or computer science, you may need to have a background in physics. This field may be as fascinating as it is complex and confusing. Whether you're a high school student looking to receive a science credit, or you're enrolled in a university-level physics course, you may be required to memorize a variety of mathematical equations as you explore physics. Since a lot of the field deals with abstract and hypothetical situations, it may be difficult for some students to grasp. If you are worried about your performance and standing in your physics course, you should consider working with a private tutor who may aid you in pursuing success. Varsity Tutors may help you connect with an independent tutor in Ann Arbor, MI, who may assist you in understanding physics.

Varsity Tutors is happy to try to help you better your understanding of physics. For help with your physics course in Ann Arbor, contact one of our educational directors. You may receive assistance finding a qualified tutor who places you at the center of the learning experience and explains difficult concepts in a manner that you may grasp and practically apply. You may receive proper guidance as you learn about quantum physics, velocity, and projectile motion. Your tutor may be able to hold discussions with you as you learn about topics like Coulomb's law so that you might be able to fully grasp the material introduced.

Session Summaries by Physics Tutors

Ann Arbor, MI Physics tutoring
We started to do some review with problem sets the student found online. We got through the first one, which he had no issues with and started on the second one. The student had no problems getting through them. We then went through circuits (resistors, currents, and voltage drops). I was able to get through each in series and parallel, and explain the concepts of each. We did a couple of problems together, and the student was able to complete some on his own. We ended our lesson with a combination problem of series and parallel.

The student and I went over a study guide given in class to prepare the students for the type of problems that will most likely be in the test. In addition, he gave me problems in advance to work out that we will be going over during the next few sessions. Our main focus was kinematics, specifically projectile motion and graphing (position, velocity and acceleration). I gave some advice in terms of studying and that he should fill out his equation sheet now to practice using it with the review problems (since he will be using it during the test). Overall it was a great session, he was engaged and willing to learn.

We discussed Optical Interference. I created an electronic version of the student's lessons, abstracting the most important images and equations. Since Interference patterns are what caused the student trouble in Sound, I decided to begin with the central concepts {constructive vs. destructive interference, path length difference, phase inversion upon reflection}, and how to turn a picture into an equation. I took the student through the semantically-rich formulations of equations derived from diagrams. We then next connected those to a "simplified" version presented in the student's class that had been confusing her. I suggested that she learn how generate those formulae, and just apply the reduced equations to the problems she would be given. We discussed the specific situations of Young's Double Slit, Air Wedge, Thin Film, Single-Slit, and Circular Aperture. The semantic versions of the equations were a great relief to the student, who greatly appreciated how all the different situations could be analyzed using the same lens of path-length difference. She will use the consistent approach and geometric assumptions we discussed to do more practice problems in preparation for her test.

Today was our first meeting, we jumped straight into the foundations of electric fields and Gauss's law. The student expressed that he found the topics difficult to conceptualize, so we used an extended metaphor of electric fields being like "wind". It is clear that this class is low on his priorities between his heavy course load and work schedule, so we will have to find a way to maximize his learning in a minimal amount of time. We looked through the first few problems on his homework due tonight, and I left him to complete the rest on his own tonight. I advised him to email me if he ran into any trouble. He is very bright so I am not concerned about him catching up on the coursework.

Today we covered topics relating to the conservation of momentum and impulses. The student picked this up very quickly and breezed through all 6 worksheets in no time. We will meet tomorrow around 5:30 to sure up her confidence before her second part of her math final. She also has a physics quiz on Friday that she is preparing for.

We continued to work on Kinematic problems using quadratic equations. The student did relatively well. We went through the problems slowly so that the student understood. I also told the student to review at home.
