Hi prospective students,

My name is Mark. I am new to WyzAnt but certainly not new to tutoring or teaching. I love to teach, I am very patient, I listen to my students, and my goal is for each and every one of my students to get success in their respective subjects. It would be my dream to teach full-time, but I have chosen the full-time career path of a physicist. Tutoring allows me to get in touch with my passion for teaching and helping students attain success!

I have an extensive background teaching and tutoring Math, Physics and Computer Science. Besides these subjects, I have helped several people study for the major standardized tests including the SAT, ACT, GRE, and ASVAB.

What makes me qualified to be the best tutor for you?

BS Physics

BA Mathematics

BS Mechanical Engineering

MS Physics

Ph.D. Candidate in Physics - should finish sometime in 2014

SUBJECTS TAUGHT IN MATH

- Pre-Algebra

- Algebra I and II

- Geometry

I would love to help any of you who are having difficulties with any of these subjects. With my help, I will get you on top of any of these subjects quickly. I can show you the best way to learn them and to study them, things that you are most likely not getting taught in school. You will not be disappointed. Looking forward to meeting you.

Mark's subjects

####
Physics

I am currently a 1 1/2 years away from getting my Ph.D. in Physics, which I am working on on a part-time basis. I am already employed professionally as a theoretical physicist with a major defense contractor. I have a B.S. in Physics, a B.A. in Mathematics, a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, and an M.S. in Physics.

####
Differential Equations

I am a professional theoretical physicist. Physics is full of differential equations: Newton's Second Law, Maxwell's Equations of Electromagnetic Theory, Legendre's differential equation, Bessel's differential equation, Laplace's equation, the wave equation, Schrodinger's equation in Quantum Mechanics, etc. I am very proficient in using and solving differential equations. Furthermore, I have taken Differential Equations in my undergraduate education and received an A grade in the course.

####
C++

I have programmed in C++ both in school and professionally since the year 2000. My Master's thesis in Physics was based on a C++ program used to perform Green Function Monte Carlo on a quantum fluid. My current Ph.D. Physics research is also based on an objected-oriented C++ program that I created with a carefully crafted object-oriented design using classes, inheritance, and polymorphism. I am definitely proficient in programming in C++.

####
C

I have programmed in C since 1997. I eventually transitioned to a C++ programmer in the last 12 years, but C++ subsumes C. If one is a proficient C++ programmer, then one can definitely do C. This is how I am with C++ and C.

####
Linear Algebra

I am a professional theoretical physicist who deals with Linear Algebra throughout Physics, including performing coordinate transformations, using and manipulating vectors, manipulating and using matrices and tensors, and using eigenvalues. I also completed a course on Linear Algebra as an Undergraduate and received an A. Furthermore, in the past I taught Linear Algebra.

####
Mechanical Engineering

I have a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Washington University in St. Louis and I have professionally worked in Mechanical Engineering problems for 6+ years in my career.
