I have over 20 years of teaching experience in mathematics, science and engineering at MIT, Boston University, University of Maryland, Daniel Webster College and Embry Riddle. I'm willing to arrange a convenient time to tutor over the internet with web conferencing. I can use pen tablets to do example problems. Students can email problems and arrange a session to have me explain the solution process.

I have taught calculus for Boston University.

Differential Equations

I have taught differential equations at all levels all the way through graduate school at several different universities. A differential equation is a mathematical equation for an unknown function of one or several variables that relates the values of the function itself and its derivatives of various orders. Differential equations play a prominent role in engineering, physics, economics, and other disciplines.

Differential equations arise in many areas of science and technology, specifically whenever a deterministic relation involving some continuously varying quantities (modeled by functions) and their rates of change in space and/or time (expressed as derivatives) is known or postulated. This is illustrated in classical mechanics, where the motion of a body is described by its position and velocity as the time value varies. Newton's laws allow one (given the position, velocity, acceleration and various forces acting on the body) to express these variables dynamically as a differential equation for the unknown position of the body as a function of time. In some cases, this differential equation (called an equation of motion) may be solved explicitly.

Electrical Engineering

I have taught electrical engineering at Boston University and have been a researcher at MIT. I have over 20 years of experience.


I have taught Geometry at the University of Maryland.

Linear Algebra

I have taught linear algebra all the way though the graduate school level at several universities. Linear algebra is the study of linear sets of equations and their transformation properties. Linear algebra allows the analysis of rotations in space, least squares fitting, solution of coupled differential equations, determination of a circle passing through three given points, as well as many other problems in mathematics, physics, and engineering. Confusingly, linear algebra is not actually an algebra in the technical sense of the word "algebra" (i.e., a vector space V over a field F, and so on).


I have taught precalculus at Daniel Webster college.


I have taught probability at Daniel Webster College and Hesser College.


I have taught Trigonometry at Daniel Webster College and the University of Maryland.
