All of Kenneth’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Kenneth’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Calculus

I have been doing Calculus as a normal part of everyday life since 2006, and have been tutoring Calculus as a topic ever since 2008. I am intimately familiar with the ins and outs of Calculus thought, from Calc I and AP Calc AB all the way up to Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems.

Differential Equations

I have taken many differential equations courses, including ODEs, boundary value problems, and several high level physics courses which use Differential Equations as part of the normal course of solving homework and test problems.

ESL/ESOL

I have been tutoring ESL since I was age 14 and my family hosted a foreign exchange student from Spain. The student's mother was so happy with his improvement that she personally sent a letter to thank me after seeing her son's English grades improve so dramatically. Furthermore, I have often the added advantage of being able to communicate some of the subtler nuances of English in the speaker's native language because I also speak German, French and Spanish.

Geometry

I have had a love for geometry ever since I was on my math team in high school. I helped the other members of my high school team put some of the best Geometry scores in the state, as well as tutored many students not from math team on the subject.

Linear Algebra

I've taken and passed two college level courses in Linear Algebra, and it is an indispensable part of the quantum mechanics and relativity toolbox. I also spent the majority of my PhD work performing (Linear Algebra) analysis on large matrices. I've tutored friends and fellow scientists in the field.

Linux

I did all of my Master's and PhD research working on Linux systems and have learned ins and outs of how Linux works. I can do everything from reformatting and re-partitioning a hard drive, to installing a Linux operating system, to command-line setting up features and hardware that a client would like. During my Master's and PhD I also taught colleagues how to do the same, and through my help they achieved success.

Logic

I have taken classes in discrete mathematics and computer logic, which have much overlap with mathematical logic. I understand how to construct and use truth tables in order to find the answer to logic and false logic puzzles. From my computer science background, I have an understanding of how the 'and', 'or', 'nand', 'nor', and 'not' operators work, and their role these operators play in formal logic.

Mathematica

During my undergraduate and Master's degrees I used Mathematica to work on complex physics problems. I learned how to operate many intricate facets of the interface and would love an opportunity to pass on what I know.

MATLAB

Used MATLAB as a core piece of mathematical analysis during my entire undergraduate experience and wrote several programs in MATLAB to perform experimentation analysis summarized in my Master's thesis. I was working alongside MATLAB gurus that shared their knowledge and experience with me, as I want to share my knowledge and experience with others.

Physics

I have spent the past nine years of my life studying physics. In 2008 I completed my BS in Physics. In 2009 I completed my MS in Physics. In 2013 I completed my PhD research in Computational Bio-physics.

During all nine years I have tutored physics students of all levels and helped them quantitatively and qualitatively understand the physical world.

Study Skills

Knowing what, when, and how to study in order to be effective with your time and energy is a difficult task. I've read books and attended seminars that tackle the very issue of how to effectively manage your time and energy in order to produce lasting memory results.

Because not every method works for every person, I know several different study and learning strategies that can help improve organization and overall study skills.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
