I have been working in the Austin area as a tutor for over 20 years. Though I majored in math, I took over 40 college credit hours in physics, chemistry, astronomy, and statistics, and regularly tutor those subjects as well. I take my work seriously, and expect students to take theirs seriously as well. But for those prepared to work, I have experienced a lot of success over the years, as my ratings and testimonials attest, and I rejoice in those successes. If I didn't enjoy seeing students succeed in areas they once thought too difficult, or in which they once felt lost, I would not tutor for a living.

I work strictly out of my home in Cedar Park, using a dedicated room as a one-student classroom. It has a large whiteboard, a large desk for students, and other teaching aides for myself, as well as online access for students who may need it for their assignments. Students must bring their own laptop, tablet, or smart phone, however. My general hours of availability are 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. M-Th and 11 a.m. to 5 or 6 p.m. Sat and Sun.

Philosophy-wise, I think there is no learning without effort, and to that end I will work to get my students more involved in the solution process as we work through similar types of problems. They will also get the most out of our time together if they attempt problems on their own before and after our sessions. However, we all need some guidance through the challenging world of academia at times, and I don't encourage students to work themselves to the point of frustration before seeking help. Do what you can, and let's get through the rest together. :-)

Because I value my time, and those of all my clients, I will enforce the following cancellation policy on all same day cancellations.

PLEASE NOTE: 24-HOUR CANCELLATION POLICY. A cancellation fee will be charged on all same-day cancellations: 1/2 hour the first time, 3/4 hour the second time, and 1 hour thereafter. NO EXCEPTIONS.

Looking forward to meeting you, and to being a part of your academic success!

Sincerely,
John R.

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

Differential Equations is truly one of my favorite subjects to tutor. Although I enjoy tutoring a wide range of math classes, I was never really excited about math until I enrolled in this class. While at UT-Austin, I made A's in Differential Equations, Vector Calculus, Real Analysis, and Vector and Tensor Analysis. I also made A's in the physics classes that required the techniques taught within them: Wave Motion and Optics, Classical Dynamics, Classical Electrodynamics, and Kinematic Astronomy. One caveat: many DE classes now include MatLab exercises. I am not familiar with MatLab.

Discrete Math

As an introduction to counting methods (combinatorics) and proofs, Discrete Math is one of the first proofs courses I took at UT-Austin. I made an A in the class as well as in many other related upper division math classes, including Linear Algebra, Probability, Real Analysis and Topology. Although I have seen variability in the difficulty of this class, based on the aims of the different teachers teaching them, I have yet to need to turn anyone away and feel very comfortable with the material.

Probability

I studied probability as part of my degree in math and made an A in the class. I also use it in statistics.
