University students have access to private study rooms, which they can book through their student accounts. They each have a white board, table, and chairs, which satisfies all one needs to have a productive learn session. I highly recommend you utilize these study rooms yourself!

Study rooms are located in the LIB, EME, and COM buildings at the University of British Columbia, Okanagan Campus. To book these rooms, and to find out more information, visit their website here:

Where exactly do you have tutorials? 

Tutorials can be 1 hr, 1.5 hrs, or 2 hrs at a time. On average, I go through 4 or 5 problems per hour, depending on the difficulty and the amount of questions.

Choose the style of tutorial you are looking for. As of right now, we have four choices for you to choose from based on your level of commitment and time restrictions. To find out more about the styles of tutorials offered, click here.

Visit Availability+Contact page on this website. There you will find my current availability and filled time-slots of the week and month.

If you are signing up with a group of students, organize a group message that works for everyone in your group.

Send me an email to book your first tutorial! Please include in your email the specific date/time of appointment, name(s), and contact information in the following format:

DD.MM.YY/Start:Time/End:Time/Name1/Email1/...

Once I have read, replied, and agreed to the booking suggestion you sent by email, the next step is to book the Study Room. If you have never booked a study room before, no problem! To be taken through the process click on the video just to the left.

To prepare for the tutorial, discuss within your group, or reference your notes to determine the types of questions/ topics to be focused on. Once you have decided, please send me an email with a list of topics or .JPG attachment of the types of questions you would like covered. Please include as detailed list as possible, with as much time before the tutorial as possible, so I have time to review!

Show up to the tutorial approximately 5 min. early to monitor the previous study group and to ensure you are not late. If no one is in the room upon your arrival, please enter the room and get comfortable. Pull out any notes, assignments, labs, or practice tests you would like to reference during the tutorial. If someone is in the room already, please knock or wave to let them know that you are in there next.

Upon arrival, we will catch up on the material you would like to go over at the current date. If you are returning student(s), I may have assigned a practice problem, at which point we would briefly discuss the solution and conceptual understanding. 

Depending on the tutorial style you have chosen, we will then partake in an exchange of information. If you give me your attention and feedback, and I provide you with both conceptual and practical approach to the subject, I can guarantee growth for the both of us! Tutorials are structured to inhabit communication in a real-time conversation on the subject. Remember, part of finding the solution is in asking the right question! 

Some students do take notes, because that is the way they are used to learning, however I recommend we do things differently. To activate your attention and retention I invite you utilize your smartphone as a resource during the tutorial! If you can exercise your ability to resist Social Media apps, I have found students who voice record and/or take pictures of the notes learn the tough concepts much quicker!

If you are a group of students, I prefer to reserve 20-30 min at the end of the tutorial for open discussion. This is always a super productive way of reviewing the subject and promotion of sharing within the group. Best case scenario, I spark a heated discussion about Math or Physics which spans long after the tutorial... :D

After the tutorial ends, students are invited to work on practice problems and ask questions directly to my email. I can't promise that I will be able to answer your question in a time-frame, however I do my best to help out students for the in between time. The amount of work you put in, I am willing to match!

At the end of the tutorial, please pay me! Information on pricing can be found here. If you have signed up with a group, or have booked multiple sessions with me, we will have discussed your discount amount. Methods of payment include cash in-person or e-transfer. The interact e-transfer payment can be sent to the email you have contacted me with!

To discourage students from thinking education can be a one-off, I offer discount packages based on advanced payment and booking of tutoring. If you have had a tutorial with me already, I recommend we discuss a plan to ensure you are fully supported in your end goal.

How does it all work?

At this time, students at UBCO with a valid student ID are eligable for onCampus tutoring! 

If you are in a Math, Physics, or Engineering course listed here. If the course you are looking for isn't listed, please contact me here.

Must be willing to learn! This may sound silly but is certainly mandatory. I hear students tell me sometimes that they aren't interested in learning the material, they just want to pass. I'm sorry, but if this is you I am obligated to deny your application.

 

Here at PHYSiMATICS I am trusting that the information I share with you will enhance your insight and help you make the world a better place. Here we respect the foundation and structure of mathematics and physics enough to recognize its elegance, simplicity, and to only unveil its secrets to the curious!
