Licensed teacher with 15+ yrs experience will demystify math and physics for you from sunny SoCal!

Methodology

The two keys to being an effective physics and math teacher are to: 1) provide clear, concise, organized interactive lesson notes ("interactive" means the student is involved in filling in sections of the notes, with guidance), and 2) help students connect new math and physics concepts to their own areas of interest, whether it's sports, music, cooking, other academic subjects, their profession, and more.

Background

I'm an effective physics and math instructor and I've helped 1000's of high school and college students achieve their academic goals. My high school physics and math classes always performed exceptionally on the New York State Regents Exam, and some of my students went on to graduate from Columbia University, Johns Hopkins, and MIT. I've also worked with adult students returning to school to complete a math or physics course to meet licensing requirement for physical therapist, lab technician, respiratory therapy, ultrasound technician, nursing, and teaching. My formal education is broad-based; I have a B.A. in Architecture from Yale, and M.S. degrees in Environmental Policy & Management, and Space Studies.
