"PhD in Physics gives math and physics lessons to middle and high school levels in Dallas"

Methodology

I have a PhD in physics and can teach physics and mathematics. My approach to teaching is interactive and I like for learning to be a conversation. Above and beyond the subject, I want to teach how to be critical thinkers and problem solvers.

Background

I've been teaching in various roles for the past six years. Over this time I've dealt with 200+ students who've gone on to receive college degrees and high school diplomas. During that time I've also done plenty of private, one-on-one tutoring and can really home in on the needs of specific students.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $40/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $175
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $300

Details

For distances greater than 10km I will charge for up to an hour of travel time.

Matthew's resume

How long have you been teaching and tutoring?

I've been teaching since 2011 and tutoring since 2007.

What degrees do you have?

I have a PhD in physics as well an MS and BS. I also have a BS in mathematics.

How do you approach teaching?

My approach to teaching is cognitive. Each student comes with cognitive skills
and prior experience from which they actively construct knowledge. For me success
is understanding and helping to improve those skills. When the opportunity arises,
I like taking time to play the following games with students: Fluxx, Set, and chess.
Each develops a different important concept. Fluxx teaches about axioms. Set teaches
abstraction. Chess teaches implication. By approaching these concepts from a playful
perspective students feel more comfortable and begin developing language for talking
about how they learn.

Beyond science or math, what do you want students to get out of teaching?

I want them to know and learn to enjoy and be on the lookout for manifestations of the aesthetics of science. Such examples rescue students from looking at theory as a forest of formulas to be learned, but rather a forest with lots of flowers and other marvels. I want them to learn to appreciate the beauty of an elegant mathematical statement and realize that there is style in even merely solving a problem.

I also want students to be aware of what goes on inside their heads. I always ask students to write down their question, what they know, and why they think its true. The goal is for us both to see their thought process. In doing so, we can identify not just what they may have missed but why they may have missed it.
