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

Tutoring in advanced applied mathematics. I provide a clear understanding of characteristics and approach to solution of all types of differential equations and approach to solutions. Typical types of equations are:
Ordinary Differential Equations
constant coefficients
periodic coefficients
General Linear Equations
Systems of Ordinary differential Equations
Partial Differential Equations via separation of variables
Fourier Series solutions
Other Harmonic Function solutions (Hilbert Transforms, etc)
Boundary value problems
Eigenvalue problems
Application of Linear Algebra (Vectors and Matrices) to solutions of Differential Equations




Application of Linear Algebra to characterize equations

Discrete Math

Working consulting scientist and former adjunct professor at Drexel University and Villinova University in Pennsylvania. Work with advanced mathematical techniques and applications of those techiques to engineering problems. If you want a clear and concise explanation of various discrete mathematics topics and applications, I am your tutor.

Selected areas of discrete mathematics:
Set Theory
Group Theory
Vector Spaces
Linear Algebra
Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors
Metric Spaces
Banach and Hilbert Spaces
Tensors
etc
If you do not see the topic you are looking for here, contact me with your area of interest and I will let you know if I can help you.


Linear Algebra

Linear algebra is the study of vectors, matrices, tensors, etc. associated with a coordinate system (Cartesian-Euclidean, cylindrical, spherical, curve-linear, etc.). Central to the theme of linear algebra is the concept of linear transformation. I am a consulting scientist in the Washington DC area and use linear algebra in my daily work to characterize and solve multi-dimensional problems. I studied linear algebra at the Case Institute of Technology and have tutored a number of college students in Matrices and Linear Algebra. I have also tutored students in the application of linear algebra to solving (1) systems of linear equations and (2) using linear algebra to solving complex, linear circuits.

Accommodating, Patient and Easy to Reach — I am a college sophomore majoring in Biology and contacted Barry for assistance in preparing for my General Physics final exam. Barry met me at home, as well as at school, was always prompt in returning calls and emails, and was patient when I needed things to be slowed down or repeated. He made sure I conceptually understood ideas and equations before applying them to problems, which solidified m ...
