Physics & Math tutor w/20+ years teaching & tutoring experience whether in-person or online in Waco,Texas.

Methodology

Each student is an unique learner. It is my job to identify how they learn and tailor tutoring sessions to their course material and learning style. I encourage students to develop critical thinking skills that will translate to not only future education but real-life experience as well. A key focus is to encourage students to develop good study habits and reduce test anxiety through rigorous preparation and practice.

Background

University physics instructor with 20+ years tutoring and teaching experience. I have taught and tutored both in face-to-face and online environments. I understand the complexities in tutoring and teaching the abstract concepts of physics and mathematics by teaching critical thinking skills and problem solving techniques. I have both bachelor's and master's degrees in physics.
I have tutored university and high school students in physics and mathematics including the following courses.
• Conceptual Physics
• Algebra-based Physics
• Calculus-based Physics
• Calculus I, II, & III
• Linear Algebra
• Differential Equations
• MCAT Preparation in Physics & Math

My students typically improved their overall grade by 1.5-2.5 letters or taking C range grades into B+ to A range.

Details

Tutoring is either conducted online via bitpaper.io (it's free for students), or in-person at a mutually agreed upon public location. I prefer to tutor in college or university libraries (sometimes Starbucks).
Regular/weekly tutoring is recommended to keep abreast of material covered in class and to not feel the need "to cram" before an exam.
I am flexible with scheduling and can usually squeeze you in for extra tutoring or with 6 hours notice reschedule for another time.
Most tutoring sessions tend to run about 45min-1.5hours depending on you and the material you want to cover.

Employment

Instructor 8/2019 - present
University of Mary Hardin Baylor, Department of Engineering, Physics and Computer Science, Belton, TX
Course design and implementation of algebra-based physics curriculum for computer scientists and engineers. Course instruction includes development of lecture, laboratory design and set-up, and assessment for multiple sections. Currently teaching part-time.

Multi-Disciplined Engineer 11/2008 – 10/2018
L-3 Communications, Instrumentation & Test Group, Waco, TX
My main job duties in the group were working as the lead data scientist developing and directing data management and control procedures for large volumes of data while maintaining program control and compliance requirements. This work focused on the development and application of specialized numerical and statistical models to solve complex analytical problems. Specific responsibilities include:
• Utilized advanced statistical analysis and numerical methods to develop improved metrics for engineering and manufacturing applications.
• Worked closely with customers and program management to develop cost estimates, scheduling and cost-effective processes for design and manufacturing, installation, maintenance and data management.
• Developed technical documentation and presentation material of data and model calibration procedures, test plans, and end of program reports.
• Responsible for the development, installation, and maintenance of flight test data acquisition systems onboard military and commercial aircraft including developing mechanical and electrical designs and installation of flight test instrumentation.
• Planned, organized and directed design engineering and manufacture for customers unique requirements while remaining on schedule and cost effective.
• Managed working relationships with other engineering and production groups to improve communication, streamline work and manufacturing processes, and reduce redundancy in engineering and reporting efforts.
• Performed additional engineering in other working groups including mechanical design, fatigue analysis, and stress analysis.
Most programs I was involved with were proprietary in nature requiring proper security clearance.

Instructor 8/2005 - present
McLennan Community College, Science Department, Waco, TX
Course design and implementation of three different levels of undergraduate physics courses including conceptual, algebra and calculus-based curriculum. Course instruction includes development of lecture, laboratory design and set-up, and assessment for multiple sections. Responsible for the development of the first distance learning (online) physics courses initially in Blackboard and later in Brightspace. This work paved the way for development of additional comprehensive mathematically based courses for undergraduates. Tools, methods and materials I have developed are easily transposable across multi-disciplinary lines with Arts and Sciences, Engineering and Education.
• Full-time instructor from August 2005 – January 2009 and part-time instructor from January 2009 to present.
