Stellar Physics and Math Tutor, Instructor and Adjunct Professor in Birmingham, MI

Methodology

At Brightmont Academy, I teach students who have ADHD, anxiety, autism, and athletic travel conflicts in a one-on-one instruction format with a mastery-based learning approach. This past semester, I taught AP calculus, physics, chemistry, algebra, earth science, and French, and I worked with students who ranged in age from 7th to 12th grade. I am quite accustomed to tailoring the curriculum to an individual student’s interests and learning styles and accommodating his/her learning differences. During review sessions, I outline algorithmic approaches to solving specific types of problems. I emphasize beginning a problem by listing the known/unknown variables, identifying the fundamental physical principles involved, and stating any assumptions implied by key words. I recommend always double checking units, orders of magnitude, and directions to ensure their answers make physical sense.

Background

I can tutor any physics, mathematics, or astronomy course except real analysis. I can also tutor elementary French, English, introductory psychology, and general chemistry. In addition to tutoring, I can teach beginning piano lessons and yoga.

I graduated from the University of Chicago with a master’s degree in physics as all but dissertation and a second master's degree in astronomy & astrophysics. An Indiana native, I graduated with highest distinction and Phi Beta Kappa from Purdue University, where I double majored in honors physics and mathematics with a minor in psychology. I also took five quarters of collegiate French classes and eleven years of piano lessons plus three years of jazz band.

As a teaching assistant, I led discussion and lab sections for courses which have run the gamut from introductory physics and astronomy sequences to mathematical methods and mechanics courses to special topics courses on black holes and gravitational waves. During office hours, I worked one-on-one with myriad students to clarify conceptual questions and to hone problem-solving strategies.

Last summer, I tutored a profoundly gifted, homeschooled elementary student with ADHD in pre-algebra, and two summers ago, I tutored a deaf student in trigonometry and college algebra through the Academic Support Center at Vincennes University Jasper Campus. I also tutored underrepresented students in the sciences through the Women in Science Program at Purdue University for two and a half years and the College Core Tutor Program at the University of Chicago for one year.
