Tutor Information


More and more students are coming to online tutoring for its convenience and effectiveness. I have 10 years' experience teaching one-on-one in person and two years' experience in the online setting. I like teaching one-on-one because it gives me a chance to focus on a student's understanding and make sure the student really gets it, which is very rewarding to me. I enjoy teaching physics and mathematics because I like seeing students become comfortable answering questions for which there is a definite right and wrong answer, which can sometimes be a scary thing. Let's make it fun instead.

I have been working as a tutor since I received my Ph.D. from Penn State. For the past year, I have been working almost exclusively online.

Teaching Assistant
I helped students working in small groups complete laboratory and pencil-and-paper physics assignments. I also coached students on their physics homework once a week in the Learning Resource Center and received one of the 2012 Graduate Teaching Awards.

Very patient and knowledgeable tutor :)

I was looking for help in relativity in physics since my own teacher made things very confusing, and I'm glad I found Garrett! He was very patient and explained everything in a very thorough way. What I liked most was that he didn't just give me the answers, he asked me questions so that I could think for myself and come to an understanding. Made topics I thought were complex surprisingly simple. A great tutor, really recommend and will definitely try and book again :)
