I have a Bachelor's of Science in Physics from the University of Maine. While I was there I tutored physics for 4 years to hundreds of students. I am a FT salaried employee at ETS and make the physics and astronomy questions that go on the CAST test for California. For those unfamiliar, the CAST is the end of year state exam administered to high school and middle school students. I have also developed for the TCAP, STAAR, and HiSET exams. Since I do work FT I only tutor in the evenings after work Mon-Fri.
About my tutoring style: I am big on explaining an idea multiple times in different ways until the concept sticks with the student. Repetition is often very helpful to students. I am a very patient tutor and make sure the students understands a topic before moving on. After we work through a problem in its entirety I will then summarize the ideas that we learned and used while working on that problem. I have had great success with hundreds of students and plan to continue to do so.
