I have over 20 years experience in tutoring, primarily in high school and introductory college level physics. I know that physics can be an intimidating subject, so I combine clear explanations of the material with strategies for how to catch mistakes without getting discouraged. Keeping a good attitude can be a key part of mastering physics. As an experienced teacher of high school and college level physics courses, I know what your teachers are looking for and I bring all the tools you'll need to succeed!

Of course, a big part of physics is math, and I am experienced and well qualified to tutor math from elementary school up through multivariable calculus and linear algebra, and I have on occasion tutored people in business math and even criminology, when requested.

Linear Algebra

I studied linear algebra at Brown University and earned an A in the class (the highest grade possible). Linear algebra is one of the most useful branches of mathematics. It is used extensively in the social sciences, computer science (where it is the very foundation of a branch of artificial intelligence known as neural networks), as well as in physics, where it is one of the key tools for understanding quantum mechanics, among other things. I used linear algebra extensively in graduate school and for research. It is one of my favorite subjects, and one where I can help students learn in a particularly clear and logical framework.
