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.
I’m currently tutoring:
IB Math SL/HL
