ExperienceAfter three years of teaching high school physics at a private preparatory school, I am now pursing a PhD in physics, with my research focused on how students learn physics. I am looking for regular tutoring clients for the 2014-2015 school year.
As someone who studies how students learn, I know that the best tutoring isn't just about content--it's about developing a students' ability to learn independently. I have experience working one on one with students to develop individualized strategies tailored to how that student learns best.
I have experience working with high school and college students with learning and mild developmental disabilities/differences, including ADHD, dyslexia, executive functioning and processing disorders, and autism spectrum disorder (high functioning/"Aspergers" only).
In high school and college settings, I have worked extensively to improve students' writing. Communication skills are important in every field, and physics is no exception.
General high school tutoring: $80/hr
+($20/hr for direct communication with teachers)
AP/College Freshman Physics & Math: $90/hr
Advanced College Math & Physics: $110/hr
(Multivariable Calculus, Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, Discrete Math, thermodynamics and statistical mechanics, junior level mechanics and E&M)
SAT/ACT/GRE tutoring: $90/hr
HobbiesI live in West Medford, with my mathematician husband and our cat. I'm looking for clients in West Medford, Arlington, and parts of Winchester (close to the Mystic Lakes).
When I'm not busy being a grad student, I enjoy hiking and playing board games.
