If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

I have Bachelor of Science degrees in Physics and Electrical Engineering and PhD in Physics.

I have more than 10 years of experience in teaching math, physics, and engineering courses to science and non-science students at UMCP, Virginia Tech, and in Switzerland. I am a dedicated teacher and I always took the extra effort to spend time with students outside regular class hours to help them learn. It is from these individual sessions that I find the students learn the most.

My tutoring style is strongly influenced by the positive experience that I gained from these personalized instruction with students. Each student has a different way of learning a subject. In tutoring, I always make it a point to figure out the student's style of learning and I plan my tutoring sessions accordingly, spending extra time to prepare for the session prior to meeting with the student. My broad background in math, science, and engineering combined with my extensive research experience provides me with the unique tools to teach effectively to students at all levels.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Differential Equations

As an undergraduate student in physics and electrical engineering and as a doctoral student in physics, I took advanced courses on mathematical methods in physics and electrical engineering. These courses involved learning the techniques, both analytical and numerical, for solving ordinary, partial, and non-linear differential equations including Green's function techniques. I have also taught Physics and Electrical Engineering courses for both undergraduate and graduate students. These courses involved solving differential equations related to applications in physics and electrical engineering.

Discrete Math

As an undergraduate in physics and electrical engineering and a PhD student in physics, I took basic and advanced courses in discrete mathematics. I have taught this subject at universities. I have tutored high school and college students on this subject.

Electrical Engineering

I am an instructor in Electrical Engineering. I taught courses on circuit theory, digital electronics, semiconductor device physics, electrostatics, magnetostatics, and electromagnetic wave propagation.

Linear Algebra

As an undergraduate student in Electrical Engineering and Physics and as a graduate student, I took courses in mathematical methods for physics and engineering. These courses included fundamental theory and techniques (including numerical) of linear algebra and its applications to engineering and physics. I have also taught undergraduate and graduate courses involving linear algebraic techniques.

Great tutor — Danilo came to our house, with very little notice. He tutored my daughter in physics and math and was very successful at clarifying problems in both subjects for her. Very professional and pleasant. We would definitely call on him again if necessary. Thank you! ...
