...I recently earned my Ph.D. in Astrophysics, and I now work for the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory outside of Chicago. I have taught at the high school and college levels. During my undergraduate degree I worked as an astronomy laboratory instructor, and in my senior year I began tutoring physics in both one-on-one and group settings.

...I am a life-long learner and combine my lessons with new ideas, best practices, and tried-and-true activities. I have been teaching and tutoring for over 15 years in a variety of settings and with a wide variety of students, so I have truly learned to differentiate my lessons to meet the needs of individual students. There are different ways I can approach specific tutoring.

...Every two minutes or so, I interrupt the student's reading and say, "That's two minutes, just breathe." By saying the same thing, it creates a trigger word that decreases stress. Hopefully, when I'm not physically there and the student feels stressed, they will hear my voice saying, "just breathe" and they will relax. My third method is to determine a student's vocabulary.
