Personal Description:

I was a professor of physics in the USA for more than 30 years. I earned a PhD in theoretical physics (with lots of maths and computing) from Florida State University and later a DSc from the University of Auckland for my research publications in the 15 intervening years. Along the way I've done all sorts of maths and physics. Now I'm living in Wellington, enjoying the gentle breezes.

Tutoring Experience:

I have tutored or taught courses at secondary through tertiary levels. I wrote five books in maths, physics and computing, but I won't expect you to read them. I have a lot of experience pinpointing areas of difficulty and resolving problems. (Physics was my weakest subject in high school, so I feel your pain.)

If you would like help with French, I can help you because I often travelled solo in France in the last few years, speaking only French. I also read French as a hobby.

Tutoring Approach:

Tutoring will be a joint effort, with both of us doing as well as we can. We will work on getting the concepts clear, not just memorizing how to plug numbers into formulas. The emphasis will be on learning the subject, not just passing the next test.

An hour a week all term will help you more than two hours a week for the second half of the term.
