I am a patient and knowledgeable tutor in math and science with a PhD Degree in Physics from University of Rochester (NY) and a BS Degree from the top university in China.

Best physics tutor ever — I have taken a few different physics courses and each time, I have hired a tutor. Eileen was by far the best that I have worked with. She understands any problem you throw at her, and does a great job of working through the material with you. I found her sessions to be more helpful than the 7 hours a week I spent in the classroom with my professor. Highly recommend. ...
