Physics involves the study of interactions between multi-varied forms of matter and energy. Although mathematics is the physicist's " toolbox ", physics itself is a deeply philosophical discipline. Unfortunately, the pressure of learning increasingly large volumes of material very quickly has caused many S.T.E.M. students to replace conceptual learning techniques with memorization gimmicks that give rise to eventual test anxiety and other academic challenges.
The physics tutorials that I provide are heavily conceptual in nature. At the beginning of each session, I make non-judgemental assessments of each student's subject comprehension. Afterward, I work on problem sets for students. Subsequently, I work on the same problem set collaboratively with students in accordance with how much time is available. Additionally, I attempt to address any questions a client may have regarding lecture materials, laboratory exercises, and/or standardized tests of interest. Adjustments to the frequency, length, and/or content depth of tutorials are respectfully obliged if requested.
Every human being is capable of gradual and sustained academic performance. When ambitious students learn from genuinely friendly and empathetic educators, the learning process is greatly enhanced. By incorporating these ideals into my lectures, potential clients are able to quickly ascertain whether or not my teaching style satisfies their expectations.

I earned a BA degree in physics from the College of Charleston in beautiful Charleston, South Carolina. As a College of Charleston student, I worked in the Center for Student Learning as an introductory physics and chemistry tutor. During my senior year, I took the Medical College Admissions Test ( M.C.A.T. ). I earned scores of 9 on the Verbal Reasoning and Physical Science sections of the test, and I scored within the top 2% of test-takers on the former Analytical Writing section of the Test. After spending a short period of time in medical school, I decided that a career in the health sciences wasn’t for me. In 2018, I passed the Praxis 2 Secondary Physics Examination with a score of 154 and became eligible to teach secondary physics classes anywhere within the United States. I currently teach and tutor physics students online full time, and I've never been happier.
Studies have shown that the Socratic Method of teaching accommodates a wide range of learning styles. This method of instruction involves the skillful usage of question-and-answer sequences to familiarize students with various problem sets. Socratic-type tutorials are constructed using the following outline as a guide:
1: Student Assessment
2: Individualized Study Plan
3: Study Sessions
A student assessment is made prior to beginning each new topic of study.
