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 a background in physics and enjoy seeing students achieve competency in applying conceptual understanding and logical analysis to problem-solving. I hope to teach students the skills they need to be successful in their physics or math course. Focus will be on improving these skills during tutoring so that learning is maximized for each session.

I have been an instructor/teacher since 2001 and have a state certification teaching science and math in Texas.

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

I took the undergraduate differential equations course and learned partial differential equations from a graduate mathematical methods course. I have also successfully tutored students taking their undergraduate differential equations course.

Physics

I am very comfortable tutoring HS physics up to AP physics B/C and 1st/2nd year calculus-based physics at the university level.

uxx + uyy = 0     Let u(x,y) = X(x)Y(y), then   YXxx + XYyy = 0  or  YXxx = -XYyy.     Separating variables, Yyy / Y = -Xxx / X = k2.   We get Yyy = k2Y  and   Xxx = -k2X   Yk(y) =...

Heat equation (answer)

ut = c2uxx   with   u(x,0) = φ(x)   Using the transformation x′ = cx, the equation becomes   ut = ux′x′     The common strategy is to use separation of variables.   Let uk(x,t) = T(t)X(x′).  Then,   dT/dt...

Mileage Experiment:   The independent variable is the model of SUV.   The dependent variable is the distance each SUV gets on 10 gallons of gas.   Some controlled variables would be road conditions, weather conditions, and type of terrain (country vs. city,...

Worth the drive — A classmate referred Francisco to me. At first I was hesitant because of the distance. However, I needed help and I had yet to make a connection with previous tutors. I couldn't be more happy with my decision. Francisco immediately made me feel comfortable with him, which in turn made it easier to listen. He is very precise on theory and manage to convey Physics to me at a level easiest to underst ...
