Experienced, patient and friendly math and physics tutor. In-person or online.

Methodology

I created interdisciplinary and multicultural lesson plans tailored to different student’s background. I have also been highlighted due to foster a positive classroom environment with mutual respect and consideration as collective goals and critical thinking and analysis about art and society.

Background

I´m a physicist from Colombia, but I moved to Melbourne, Australia since 2018. I hold a Bachelor Degree and a Master degree. I worked as a researcher studying the structure, and the electric and magnetic behaviour of new materials. I´ve been teaching physics and maths since 2002 when I was finishing high school. I was usually teaching my classmates and since then I realized my passion for teaching and helping others to learn.

While I was studying my bachelor, I started a Tutors Network made up of many teachers who were around the city tutoring all subjects and all levels. It was amazing because I had the chance to teach and enlighten students in school, university and also people older than me who struggled in different topics.

I was the head of the physics area in a prestigious School in Colombia where I taught physics to High School students. I saw seven generations of students successfully graduated and many of them have finished or are studying science or engineering-related careers. I created and support a Physics and Astronomy Club, engineering and science projects, chess club, fairy science and besides I directed a music band and choir which participated in many events.

I love experimental classes and practical lessons, for example, if you want to learn about the waves we can use the music as a bridge or sports to study mechanics. To me, the most important things about learning any subject are being clear on your goals and keeping up your motivation. That is why I bring the topics to earth using real-life examples to make the concepts clearer.

I have a very driven teaching style I act as a learning coach giving you tips and teaching you how to study on your own. I usually try to answer the question of why are you learning this? and how far you can reach. I start the first lesson by going over your goals and checking your current level, especially your weaknesses but also your strengths. This helps us manage expectations and keeps us on track for future lessons and learning plans. I create interdisciplinary and fun lesson plans tailored to different student’s background. I have also been highlighted due to foster a positive learning environment with mutual respect and critical thinking and analysis of art and society.

I can break down complicated topics in maths and physics into simpler, straightforward ideas. You can bring any topic you are struggling in and we will work on it together or you can ask for a specific topic and I´ll prepare a lesson for you. In my lessons, I usually use google docs, screen sharing, pdf textbooks, and free online resources like applets or videos. I prefer to give out homework for you to do it in your own time and we will check it at the beginning of the next lesson.

If you are looking for a friendly, experienced, and very patient teacher to expand your knowledge and skills in physics and maths, I could be the one for you. I can assist you with all topics at any level. Let´s contact me, I look forward to seeing you soon!
