I hold a PhD degree in mathematics from the University of Leipzig (Germany). My area of expertise is differential equations with variational structure. I have been doing mathematics for about 16 years.

You probably came across my profile because you have some troubles in mathematics. Perhaps it's not possible for your teacher/instructor to provide the extra help that you need for certain reasons, I happened to be here to provide what they couldn't.

Although I'm new to WyzAnt, I'm not new to teaching/tutoring! I have tutored mathematics for the last 15 years. I have worked as a high school teacher in central Africa (Congo); I was an invited lecturer at a college in west Africa (Benin). I have taught/instructed several courses (including Precalculus, Calculus, Differential Equations, Complex Variable Functions, Functional Analysis) at the University of Giessen (Germany).

I have taught/tutored a broad range of students, including 11th and 12th graders, college students, high school math/physics teachers, and undergraduate/graduate students.

I look forward to hearing from you, and hope that I can help you enjoy doing math the way I do!

Terrific Differential Equations Instruction — I am taking a college level Differential Equations class and Percy is my tutor. I selected him because of his PhD in mathematics, which I knew would give him a solid grasp of the material, but the added bonus is that he is an outstanding teacher! Percy takes complex material and breaks it down in a way that helps me to understand not just the formulas, but the intuition behind the formulas. My com ...
