Tutor Information


I only tutor physics, and sometimes the math to go with it. Mostly I tutor AP Physics 1, AP Physics C: Mechanics, AP Physics C: Electricity & Magnetism, High School Physics, Honors Physics, Calculus-based Introductory College Physics, and Algebra / trig –based Introductory College Physics. I also sometimes work with students in AP Physics 2, Honors Physics, Homeschool Physics, and so forth. I taught high school physics for 6 years. In that time, my students earned a statewide reputation for excellence on IB Physics SL and IB Physics HL exams, in spite of taking the IB Physics SL exam at the end of the first year rather than after two years. They also performed well on exams for AP Physics C Mechanics, AP Physics C Electricity and Magnetism, and AP Physics B (a combination of AP Physics 1 and AP Physics 2, more or less). In the final year, they dominated the competitive Drake physics exam, administered to over 1,000 students in four states by Drake University. I also taught high school math in rural Kenya through the Teach for Knowledge program. And I’ve taught English as a Second language online and for one hour as a guest in a junior high school in Uganda. I have a BSC in Physics from South Eastern Kenya University.
