I'm a budding Physicist and I believe that a good understanding of the physical laws which govern our universe is not only key for a good outlook on life, but makes a number of things in life more enjoyable. About myself: I'm from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic originally and came to New York when I was three (I've been here 19 years - Go Yanks!). I play the guitar (I love the Blues) and am a baseball enthusiast. I am fluently bilingual (English and Spanish) and as such can teach what I know in both languages.
I've recently received a degree in Physics (B.S) from Fordham U. in The Bronx. At Fordham, the Physics Department requires that all upperclassmen be available for tutoring in the classes they've succeeded in, meaning that I've tutored in several areas of Physics and Math for two consecutive years. I've also had the pleasure of tutoring my younger siblings in anything they need help with (I have a 9 yr. old sister who loves Science, and I believe I've played at least a small role in that). I love tutoring; many see tutoring as a service provided by one party to another, but it has great benefits for the tutor as well. Through tutoring at Fordham and unprofessionally (family and friends) I've learned how to communicate physical and mathematical theories at several levels of comprehension, and my understanding of the subject matter has often improved as a result. My general approach in tutoring physics and math is to emphasize the theory behind whatever subject the student may be dealing with. Once a student firmly understands a physical or mathematical theory it is much easier to understand the formulas and applications behind the theory. Examples are key in understanding this type of subject matter and as such I greatly emphasize examples as well. I am very patient when it comes to relaying the knowledge I have because I understand how difficult Math and Science may be for some (Science was not necessarily my strong suit in High School).
