Physics and Mathematics Instructor, with 10 years of tutoring experience, Online/Dublin CA

Methodology

My goal as a teacher is to engage students by presenting physics, mathematics, and other technical material in an engaging and non-intimidating manner, relating that material to real-world issues and examples, while emphasizing intellectual rigor, logical problem-solving, and critical thinking, reasoning, and analysis. Through my experience teaching students from diverse backgrounds, I have learned to tailor my teaching approach to the needs of individual students. I prepare my lesson plans to cover not only the basic material but also to be relevant to the students’ experiences, cultures, and prior knowledge. My lessons are designed to present students with engaging and challenging scenarios that encourage them to think beyond the obvious and come up with creative solutions.

I complement traditional physics lectures with discussions of the science aspects of current events. Almost every major issue in the public discourse hinges on issues of science and technology (e.g., climate change, public health, the role of automation, or the implications of artificial intelligence). It is essential that today’s students--those who decide to pursue a scientific career and those who do not--gain sufficient scientific literacy to understand and address these issues, for they are tomorrow’s voters, policy formulators, and decision makers

Background

I am a professional educator with nearly 10 years of teaching experience. I have a M.S. in Physics (2019), and a B.S. in Physics and Mathematics. I am an active researcher with peer-reviewed publications. In addition I am currently pursuing a Teaching Credential to teach physics.

I have expert knowledge in many aspects of physics and mathematics including: Electricity and Magnetism, Thermodynamics, Quantum Mechanics, Classical Mechanics, Linear Algebra, Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations, Calculus, and Statistics.

I have tutored math and science at the high school and college level for nearly 10 years. As an undergraduate student I worked as private tutor and a laboratory assistant helping my fellow students master material. As a graduate student I worked as a teaching assistant, I taught college-level foundational physics and physics laboratories for science majors (heavy emphasis on mathematical approaches) as well as physics for nonscientists (requiring a largely nonmathematical approach).

During this time I discovered my love for teaching and for the last 3 years I have also tutored middle- and high-school students for the last 3 years in a program supplementing their regular classwork.
