Meteorologist/Atmospheric Scientist education with physics and calculus background offering tutoring lessons in Atlanta, GA.

Methodology

My teaching method is very simple. My goal is for the student to develop critical thinking skills rather than memorize pieces of information. By allowing the student the think through the problem at hand or to grasp the information conceptually, the student will be able to retain the information and use the critical thinking skills in every facet of life.

Background

I currently work for Delta Air Lines, and I have a bachelor's degree in Geography and Atmospheric Sciences with a physics minor and a master's degree in Atmospheric Sciences. I have a strong background in algebra, calculus, and physics. During college, I was a summer intern for NASA, and I taught online courses while I was attaining my master's degree. The online courses were mostly self-guided for the student to learn at his or her own pace, and I held office hours for one-on-one tutoring.
