I tutor Mathematics, Physics, and Computer Science. My students range from the Elementary to the PhD level.
Since 2007, tutoring has been a passion for me. My interest in learning is infectious, and my tutoring style is both friendly and engaging.
I joined WyzAnt.com in the Spring of 2011, and since then have tutored nearly full time. My students range in age from 8 to 38. In each case, they sought to fill gaps that their classes left behind. Traditional education offers a one-size-fits-most model. The students who benefit the most from tutoring are those who fall outside that model.
My BS degree is in Physics, and I have two Masters degrees: one in Mathematics and the other in Physics. They were obtained from the University of Maryland and from Johns Hopkins University. My teachers were some of the best in the country, and I've adopted their excitement and dynamism to my teaching style.
In Mathematics, my tutoring experience includes:
- Algebra I & II
- Plane & Analytic Geometry
- Probability & Statistics
- Number Theory
- Differential Equations -- Ordinary and Partial
- Real & Complex Analysis
- Numerical Analysis
In the Sciences, my tutoring experience includes:
- Physics (Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Optics, Electricity & Magnetism)
- Chemistry (Inorganic only)
- Earth Science (I'm one of very few people who has actually read the IPCC reports on Global Warming.)
In Computer Science, my tutoring experience includes:
- Programming languages – C++, FORTRAN, Haskell, Java, Perl, Python, R
- Algorithms and their analysis
- Linux, especially training for certifications such as the LPI and RHCE
Need help preparing for the SAT, GMAT, GRE, GED, or for class tests? Recently, I took five of the standardized tests that prospective teachers are required to take. These tests, called the PRAXIS Series, are similar to the SAT and the GRE, but are most like the GED. On both the Mathematics and Physics Content tests, I scored in the top 15% of fellow test takers.
Pursuing Advance Placement? I've tutored students taking:
- AP Calculus AB & BC
- AP Physics B & C
- AP Computer Science A
- AP Statistics
- AP Chemistry
- AP Environmental Science
Need help in advanced areas? My tutoring experience includes these subjects and using these textbooks:
Biology – O'Reilly's Perl Programming for Bioinformatics
Cryptography – Stinson's Cryptography: Theory & Practice
Discreet Mathematics – Epp's Discrete Mathematics with Applications
Economics & Game Theory – Montet & Serra's Game Theory & Economics
Environmental Sci – Cunninghams' Environmental Science: A Global Concern
Electrodynamics – Jackson's Classical Electrodynamics
Algebraic Prog – Luenberger's Intro to Linear & Nonlinear Programming
Functional Prog -- Learn You a Haskell for a Great Good
Mechanics – Goldstein's Classical Mechanics
Statistical Programming – Muenchen's R for SAS and SPSS Users
