Additional Info: I am a 22 year old graduate of the United States Air Force Academy with undergraduate degrees in both math and physics. I am currently working as a research physicist as part of a 6 year program to get my PhD.

Starting in 2001 I began tutoring algebra. All through middle and high school I informally tutored my friends. After high school I began tutoring a little more formally while attending the Air Force Academy. In 2010 I volunteered for about 2 hours every week tutoring a class of 1st-8th graders in math at a small private school. Additionally I tutored high school students in algebra, trigonometry and geometry. Most recently my geometry student had a 70% in her class when she started with me, and after the final two months later had raised her grade to a high B. Finally I led study sessions for calculus I and II students before tests at the Air Force Academy often leading a classroom of 30 students at a time.

Teaching Style:

I typically use an almost socratic method of tutoring. I like to break down the task (whether it be math or something else) into a series of simple questions. I ask each question one at a time until the student understands the answer then I move on to the next question. This method ensures I am not giving the student the answer and also helps them develop an understanding of the process used to get to the answer. If one path of reasoning does not work, I am also quite good at coming up with an alternate or creative explanation. I love to use visual aids to include creating scenarios complete with props to illustrate concepts. This is particularly useful when I am tutoring science.
