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

Computer Programming

I have used Computer Programming extensively for my work in physics, maths and biophysics, and have taught classes in selected areas. My experience includes a number of computer languages, as well as algorithms and methods for the use of computers to solve practical and numerical and control problems. I enjoy the subject, and would be happy to help others who are taking classes in this discipline.

Computer Science

My undergraduate degree is in Computer Science, and I started the graduate program in this field before I returned to finish in physics. As the subject matter has evolved with time, it would be best to ask me if I can help with a particular topic.

Differential Equations

I have worked with differential equations extensively throughout my career in maths, physics and biophysics. I would be happy to help others learn and achieve in this most important branch of mathematics.

DOS

I have been using DOS for years with all kinds of projects related to PC-type computers. I can very likely help with any questions or topics that arise in this subject.

Fortran

I have extensive experience in Fortran based on my physics research years, both on mainframe and personal computers. I also have a degree in computer science.

Microsoft Windows

As a side project, I maintain a fleet of some 100 Windows computers at a local K-8 school, and have experience in many aspects of practical and theoretical issues.

Physics

My PhD is in elementary particle physics, and I have extensive learning and teaching experience in the major areas of physics at up to the university graduate level.

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.
