Astrophysicist with Three Years Teaching Experience Offering Online Tutoring to All Ages

Methodology

Math and science and be incredibly intimidating, especially if they don't come naturally to you. Fear not! I adjust my teaching methods to each student's interests, abilities and pace so that I can share my love of these wonderful subjects. Let's get rid of that fear and start loving learning!

Background

I recently graduated from UC Santa Cruz with a degree in Astrophysics. I have two years experience doing research on dark matter dynamics and detection. I also have three years teaching experience, two of which were as a college mathematics teaching assistant.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $40/h

Details

My rates vary by level: elementary school -- $40/hr, high school--- $50/hr, university --- $60/hr. These are flat rates and can be split between multiple students. For example, if five high school students wanted to do a group lesson, they would each pay $10/hr.
