Certified college STEM tutor, with a BS in physics, offering lessons in both high school and college-level math and physics.

Methodology

As a tutor I am not a teacher, I am a coach. I coach my students through various topics using prepared practice worksheets, hands-on activities, and by asking leading questions to help guide them through each problem; allowing them to make mistakes, learn from the mistakes, and eventually guide me through the problems.
I create a supportive and comfortable environment by emphasizing the importance of mistakes and communicating my personal troubles and triumphs with the topic, as well as my personal experience as the student being tutored.
I make sure to get to know each student by asking them about their interests, what areas they struggle in, what areas they do well in, and what kind of learning styles and tactics (hands-on, visual, auditory, repetition, whiteboard work, etc.) they feel helps them best understand the material. I then use this information to create a personalized learning session/lesson plan and make sure to include their interests in the context of the material so they can relate the material to real-world examples that they understand well and are interested in.

Background

I am a recent physics graduate from Ithaca College looking to help both high school and college students with their studies in STEM. I became certified as a college STEM tutor in the fall of 2017 and have been providing both private and group lessons ever since.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $18/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $80
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $165

Details

I do have a sliding rate depending on the distance of travel and the specific needs of the student. I am also more than willing to compromise on my hourly rate for students with extenuating circumstances.
