Physics is hard for many reasons, but one of the main ones is that each unit builds off the previous one - it is hard to perform well in Unit 5 if Units 1-4 aren't understood. Within the first 30 minutes of working with a student, I can find where their issues begin, and will devise a plan to catch them up to their current class level from that point.
My experiences have taught me that all students are different, and therefore, have different strengths and weaknesses when it comes to learning a difficult subject. I pride myself on being able to connect with students of all ability levels and am confident in my ability to explain concepts in multiple ways.
I have all of my own materials, including lecture notes to talk through using screen share, practice worksheets, practice quizzes/exams, and access to actual, old AP physics problems. I am happy to send the student as much practice as they would like at the conclusion of each session.
Meetings typically last 1 hour and are conducted online via Zoom. Due to the pandemic, I no longer offer in-person meetings.
Each session is individually customized to meet the needs of the student. During our time together, I can:
Students are able to email in questions throughout the week. Their questions can be in written form, or can be pictures of problems they would like to know how to begin attacking. I will not do their homework for them, but I will be happy to trade emails while giving tips along the way.
Online meetings are typically held via Zoom, but I am flexible if another platform is preferred.
Emailing the tutor problems in advance is always helpful and makes sessions most efficient.
