Physics can be a difficult subject to learn at any level. Each school course and textbook will try to use its own approach to teach the many complicated and abstract topics in the field. In the end, it can seem like a giant mess to someone trying to learn the subject. What is the material really trying to teach? What are the practice and homework problems really getting at? What is the big picture? This is what I try to bring to each teaching session. It is easy to get lost in definitions and equations. We will try to distill the material into information the student can clearly understand.
About Alex K.

Hello! I am a mathematics and physics tutor with four years of experience tutoring math, from algebra through college-level calculus, and four years of formal experience teaching a variety of physics topics at the college level. I received Master's degrees from Purdue University in physics and electrical engineering and Bachelor's degrees in physics and honors mathematics, also from Purdue. My goal in teaching is to explain topics in a fundamental and relatable way that makes them visual and real. I draw inspiration from the great physicist Richard Feynman, the "Great Explainer," who became famous as a teacher for his ability to distill complex topics into simple terms anyone could understand. It is my job to adapt to the student, not the other way around. Welcoming any students! Feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule sessions.
