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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

C++

I am a professional scientist and hold a PhD in physics. Currently, I am employed as a
senior software engineer in the Research Division of IBM. I have used the C++ language in my work for more than 15 years, and even contributed to the port of C++ to the DEC Vax/VMS operating system. I have written large projects in C++ including a simulation of the CESR particle accelerator at Cornell University and numerous projects for IBM.

I offer a comprehensive course of C++ including basic language, concepts of object orientation, development environments, the standard library and the standard template library

Computer Programming

I have been a professional scientist for more than 20 years. In this capacity, I have written hundreds of thousands of lines of computer code in many different languages. I was employed by the research division of IBM for 16 years as a senior software engineer. As an adjunct professor, I will be teaching the computer science department's UNIX class next semester at Western Connecticut State University.

Linear Algebra

I am a professional scientist holding a PhD in physics from Caltech. I have used linear algebra in my research work for many years. When I studied the subject in college at Yale, I was given university honors for my work.

I offer a comprehensive course in Linear Algebra including vector spaces and linear functions, linear and affine coordinate transformations, matrices, solutions of simultaneous equations, and linear programming.

Physics

I graduated from Yale summa cum laude with a BS in physics and I hold a PhD in physics from Caltech. I was employed for ten years in the physics department of Cornell University as a staff scientist at the Wilson synchrotron laboratory. For the last fourteen years I have worked as a scientist in the research division of IBM at the TJ Watson Research Center.

Great Tutor — This guy is brilliant, he knows the material he teaches and not only that but he knows how to make you understand it. He does not sit and simply lecture you, but he makes sure you understand the material, he pushes you and that is what really made me learn. He always says "Never suffer in silence" and if you have any questions it is very easy to reach him on the phone and ask away. I was taking co ...
