Credentials, Testimonials, Chemistry Tutor, Math Tutor, Physics Tutor
David Roth, Tutor in Tulsa, OK for the subjects of math, chemistry, and physics.
Degree: MS in chemistry from the University of Oklahoma.
Experience: As a graduate student I was head teaching assistant in charge of chemistry labs, grading exams, keeping records of grades, laboratory safety inspections, etc.
I have taught at various community colleges, however those jobs are very low-paying so I decided to start my own tutoring business and that is what I do full-time now. I have been doing this full time since 2004.
My first tutoring experience was as a self-employed tutor in 1992, and I have ether been teaching or tutoring for most of the time since then.
Personl: I'm 44 years old, married, we have two beautiful (and very energetic!) baby girls, Mia and Clarice. And they are so amazing that I think I want to have about 1000 more. So 2 down, 998 to go. ;-)
I like to study math in my free time and I wish I had more free time to do so, but tutoring is what I mostly focus on. I also have another website that helps people find tutors or tutors to find customers. It's free of charge. If you want to check it out: www.tutor-pages.com.
Tutoring locations: I normally tutor students either at their school, a library, or coffeeshop. If the parents will be home, I do not mind tutoring at your house. However, if you are located far from my usual location, I will have to charge a little extra for travel time.
Teaching methods: I prefer to tutor people one-on-one rather than via the internet, but I try not to limit myself, so I'm branching out to the e-world. Online tutoring is a bit slow and inefficient for actual real-time tutoring (via chatroom)--typing math equations and symbols if very difficult!--but if all that is required is a little homework help, then email works great.
For true learning, I encourage students to do as much of the homework themselves as they possibly can and I try to provide homework help to smooth over the rough areas -- more like a coach than a tutor. If the student simply watches me solve problem after problem... the student is not really learning that way. The student needs to learn to solve the problems on their own. I love nothing more than to have a student say "Y'know... I think I can do this on my own now. I don't think I'll need your help." This often means I lose a customer, but I can add one more success to my list.
Advice to students: For studying math, chemistry, and physics, it is VITAL that you solve as many homework problems from the back of the chapter as you possibly can. Or at least as many homework problems as you have time for. Math and science is much like driving, you can read about it or watch other people do it, but you won't really learn how until you "get behind the wheel" and solve the homework problems on your own. All I can do is smooth over the rough areas and perhaps show you some strategies and short-cuts that will make things easier for you. The true learning is up to you, the student. I cannot pour knowledge directly from my head into yours. If only life were that simple... but it isn't. Learning requires work. A tutor is just a tool that can help make learning a little faster.
A bit more about studying: Active learning is what I practice and preach. That means not just reading, but also taking notes as you read, answering questions throughout the chapter, and becoming actively involved in what you're studying. If you passively try to absorb the material, like reading a novel, you will not really get a good understanding of the material. I do my best to impart this philosophy to students.
And Still More About Studying! Math is 90% practice and 10% theory! If you work lots of homework problems and become good at them and do them quickly and correctly, you will almost certainly do good on the exams!
You are awesome!
After seeing your explanations and calculations (physics I) to those specific homework questions are well above and beyond what was covered in class. I'm not sure how the instructor expected us to answer them, so I'll be sure to tailor my responses accordinlgy (and will keep your detailed explanations in my hip pocket for future reference).
I can hardly thank you enough for your prompt reply and efforts in getting this to me so quickly. These type of "emergency" homework assignments are rare...
I anticipate plenty more work to be sent your way, and glad to have such an expert such as yourself standing by to assist in getting me through my class difficulties (and difficulties are putting it mildly...Haha!)...
Thanks again and have a great day!
Thanks a lot David, I was able to understand atoms much better and I
did my project easily. When I get my grade, I will send you another
e-mail telling you what it was!!
(and a later email)
Hello David, im sorry I haven't e-mailed you...i just wanted to let you
know i got 4 A's on my Atom's project! THANKS A LOT!!
David, you made this (calculus--series and sequences) really clear for me. I could follow the solutions you gave me really easy. I know it was a lot of work. Thanks!
Got the solutions. It helped greatly. I asked my prof about the plane being off course and he said to ignore that. I"m glad you showed me both ways. Thank's. Curious as to where are you located at? Thank's for the prompt service and I'll be using you for homework help throughout the semester.
Thanks for your detailed explanations (chemistry lab homework). Now I can understand much better.
Wow! That was fast and very detailed work (Physics I)! Thanks a million, and I hope you are available for future help with homework!
I have dozens more tutoring testimonials I could add to this list, but I'm not going to keep this updated any more. I think you get the idea. Most every student likes the way I provide homework help. I can't say that I have a 100% sucess rate; probably more like 98% or higher! In fact, I don't remember the last time I had an unhappy customer.
