...I make sure that the main ideas of the program at hand are understood first. I make sure the syntax is also clear, so the results can be applied. I have a Ph.D. in experimental atomic physics and I have been programming for 30 years.

...I also completed all the coursework required for a cell biology minor during my graduate schoolwork at MIT. Calculus is the most important mathematical tool for describing the real world. I've tutored dozens of students for hundreds of hours in calculus, so I'm familiar with the subtopics where students are most likely to struggle.

...I like to find the right balance between identifying patterns through the repetition of a given category of problem, and asking more conceptual questions. Advanced algebra was one of my favorite subjects in graduate school, where I earned an "A" in at least three or four such courses. The same concepts are in elementary algebra, and I have a good amount of experience tutoring at this level.

...Pre-calculus is the study of function families and their behavior. It includes transformations, trig and lots of modeling of real world behavior. When teaching Pre-calculus I focus on helping students to make the connections between the graphical, table and equation forms of the functions we work with.

...We strengthen those skills while building an understanding of the principles and uses of pre-algebra and algebra concepts. I frequently suggest and monitor work with Khan Academy exercises as a way to get additional practice between tutoring sessions. I provide SAT Math (as well as Writing and Reading) prep support using a combination of practice questions and test-taking strategies.
