Physics Tutor in Salt Lake City
Professional Math Tutor and Science Tutor in the Salt Lake Area
Math and science are often the most difficult subjects for most students, but having a good
teacher makes a huge difference. Many math tutors are simply good at math but have not
learned how to teach the subject effectively, or studied about how the mind processes
information. My extensive experience in mathematics, science, teaching, and learning
psychology has allowed me to help students in a way that most other tutors and teachers
More than Math Tutoring: As a math tutor and science tutor, I have had the privilege of
tutoring students in many other related subjects as well including business, finance,
economics, health science, psychology, nursing, engineering, and marketing.
High School: Algebra, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, Trigonometry, AP Calculus, AP Statistics, AP
Physics, AP Chemistry, AP Biology, SAT, ACT.
Society and Mathematics
After high school we are normally left with the false impression that math nothing more
than a mind excercise and has no practical value in everyday life. While it is true that
studying and understanding complicated mathematical concepts can improve a person's
intellegence, it is also true that mathematics has played a significant roll in almost every
major breakthrough in human history. Mathematics has not always been at our disposal, it
has been developed slowly throughout the centuries by extremely creative minds who
sought new ways of understanding and sovling real world problems.
When we learn of these creative methods in school, they are taught as boring, mechanical
approaches for arriving at the solutions of very particular types of problems. If instead we
were given a real world problem initially, before learning a systematic method for solving
it, we would develop a much greater appreciation for the usefulness of the method as well
as understand the great deal of creativity that was required to develop it.
Mathematical creativity does not end when a particular branch of mathematics is
developed, rather it becomes a tool to inspire more creativity among those who are trained
to use it. Pure mathematics is the art of developing new and more powerful mathematic
tools while applied mathematics is the art of using these tools in creative ways to solve real
Introduction: I believe it is important to continue learning and teaching throughout ones
entire life! For the past 6 years I have done a great amount of teaching and tutoring. In
2005 I began working for Johns Hopkins University's Center for Talented Youth program
where I had the privilege of teaching mathematics and science courses to gifted middle
school and young high school students for several weeks each summer. That same year I
also began working as a tutor and TA at Harvey Mudd College while concurrently enrolled
in school there. In 2007 I moved to Salt Lake City to attend graduate school at the
University of Utah. Soon after I moved here I began working with many local high school
students as a private math and science tutor though I developed a much more consistent
customer base starting in the summer of 2009. In the fall of 2009 I began teaching
undergraduate mathematics courses at the University of Utah and have taught one course
each semester since then. I am very passionate about teaching and make a concerted effort
to improve my abilities at every possible opportunity.
