Professional Physics and Math Tutoring

Thank you for visiting terrybtutoring.com (NE Portland and Beaverton)


My name is Terry Burch and I am a former math and physics teacher with 4 years experience teaching in public high schools, 7 years experience teaching at community colleges, and 15+ years experience with individual, private tutoring.  I've worked with thousands of students in many environments and I have the experience and skills necessary to help you or your child succeed in math or physics.


I not only help my students better understand the material where it is most needed, but I also work to build confidence and help develop problem-solving strategies that will aid in all areas of study.  I focus on helping the student make multiple connections for deeper understanding.  It is my belief that anyone can learn math and physics with the right approach.  I use library texts and technology in addition to the student's own class materials(textbook/calculator/paper/pencil) to help achieve our goals.

I often assign extra worksheets to students in need of a bit more practice and mostly with answers at the end.  I firmly believe that focused practice with a distinct, measurable outcome will yield the largest gain, both in terms of understanding and grades.


I work with students of all ages:

*middle school students needing help or working on building the foundation necessary for success in high school math and beyond

*high school students needing immediate help when struggling in class or just those seeking consistent, balanced math mentoring

*students taking online math classes who cannot effectively teach themselves the material

*adults re-entering academia who’ve been away from math for an extended period

*adults and teens seeking help preparing for a standardized test (SAT, ACT, SAT PHYSICS, SAT MATH, IB PHYSICS AND MATH, MCAT, PRAXIS, GRE, ASVAB)

*college students - Physics 201/202/203 and Math up to Calculus 2.

*homeschool students 


I’m currently tutoring:
