Hi, my name is Gene. I am a former University Professor and College Instructor with many years of experience in teaching and private tutoring of Math and Physics to high school and college students. Over the years I have taught different engineering and scientific disciplines across the board of the entire science, math, and engineering curriculum. I have successfully tutored students with different educational backgrounds and levels of proficiency: from high school to graduate school. I approach each student individually using different teaching techniques. I am very patient and flexible in my teaching methods and approach each student with a personalized curriculum and method based on the student's specific weakness and personal need. I LOVE to teach Science and MATH and in the end to prove to my students that learning and succeeding in Math and Science even most rigorous classes can be a great fun and much easier than they initially imagine. I hold a MS degree in Physics and a PhD degree in Physics and Applied Math from the most prestigious Russian Universities and Academic institutions. I live in US almost 25 years and taught at the University of Washington and Washington State Green River College. I've tutored all levels of Math, Physics, Statistics and numerous EE undergraduate and graduate courses very successfully in private sessions, both individually and in small groups. All my HS students who have taken AP tests received the "five" grade and were admitted to the top US Universities. I can almost immediately pinpoint individual weakness and strength of each student and develop an individually crafted path to the future success in class and advanced standardized tests.
