Senior Applied Physics major at Caltech offering tutoring of any subject K-12, specializing in math/physics up through 2nd year college. Good with SAT/GRE prep, looking to work in Pasadena area

Methodology

My teaching methodology will vary based on the student and the subject. When possible I find it useful to take things from a more theoretical/process based approach so that students can understand why certain equations are used or why problems are solved in specific ways rather than just doing assignments as if they are following some sort of recipe. It is very important to link back to the relevance of why certain topics in a subject are important.

Background

Applied Physics major at Caltech in senior year, with 3.7/4.0 GPA. Extensive physics laboratory experience, have worked professionally doing Aerospace research/internships when not in school. Have been a tutor since I was 14 and have tutored kids of multiple ages from various backgrounds, including disadvantaged inner-city children, children from my previous elementary school, and freshmen and sophomores at Caltech who took classes that I previously took.

Rates

Rate for a 1-hour lesson. : $30/h

Details

This is my standard rate for a typical student, typical classes. I would be willing to work for less for younger students, simpler classes. I would request slightly more in some cases for something like AP or college level classes where I would do a significant amount of work on my own to prepare for the tutoring session.
