I take great joy in seeing how math describes the world, and am eager to share this excitement with others. Through many years of tutoring experience, I have developed a teaching style that is patient, enthusiastic, and adaptable to pupils' needs.
I attended the University of Delaware on academic and athletic scholarships, becoming the Colonial Athletic Associations Swimming Scholar Athlete of the Year for two years running. I am well aware of the struggle for attention between pupils' varied endeavors, and am eager to share my experiences learning to find balance.
I completed my M.Sc. in Physics at the University of Massachusetts (Amherst), where I taught physics laboratory exercises and lectured. I was awarded the Quinton Teaching Award for my work there before moving to Philadelphia, where I competed my Ph.D in Physics. at Temple University.
Math is the language of science, and forms my basis for describing how much of the world works. I love teaching others to harness the power of math for their benefit.
I recently completed my doctorate in Physics, where I taught laboratory exercises and lectures in first year physics. I am comfortable teaching at many levels, whether you require conceptual help, struggle with setting up problems, or need help with the calculus behind the science.
I swam competitively for 18 years, culminating in a scholarship for swimming at the University of Delaware, where I set several records. I also have experience teaching swimming with the Washington State Special Olympics, and in summer school settings.
I am generally available from 10am-10pm daily, but can accommodate appointments before work/school upon request. Contact me for for details.
