Math and Science Tutoring
I used to struggle with science and math subjects as a student, and I hope to remove the anxiety and frustration from these topics. I don’t just tutor Science and Math skills, I try to also encourage the growth of self-confidence. I went from struggling with these topics to getting an MS in physics and a PhD in biophysics, so I am proof that these difficulties CAN be overcome, and I want to help others do the same!
I’ve been tutoring middle school, high school, college, and grad school level students for over 25 years – since my college work-study days! I’ve also taught classes at the University and Graduate level, but I prefer working one-on-one so that I can really directly address individual questions and confusions. I take the material as slowly and patiently as needed to find your inner science or math Super Star! =)
I regularly with students with IEPs. I think it should be the norm for all students to have individualized education because the needs of so many students are not being met by our current system. I tailor my tutoring approach to meet the needs of each student, meeting them where they are at. I have worked successfully with students with a variety of issues hindering learning, including ADHD and students on the autism spectrum. I personally am on the autism spectrum and have ADHD, so I understand the struggles!
I have a wide science background across biology, chemistry, and physics. I have worked as a research scientist and lecturer at Caltech, one of the top technical schools in the world.
I also tutor other topics, including history, english, and writing. I enjoy working with students to learn how to use a structured writing process to produce excellent papers and essays.
Due to health issues, I currently work with students online using Jamboard and Zoom. Assignments can be shared on the screen so that we can both write on them together, so it works well.
