- I am happy to work with you regardless of your experience level!  I understand that math and physics can be very challenging, but I think that the challenges involved can be overcome with dedication and a positive mindset.  If you think you can get better at math/physics and seek help when you need it, you WILL get better, and perhaps come to enjoy math/physics more as a result!  My primary goal as a tutor is to help you with this process as best as I can.
