Nathan is a phenomenal tutor and was able to support my daughter through two very difficult classes at UALR, physics and calculus. He is talented in teaching the subject in a manner that simplifies the subject and increases confidence. Nathan had a very flexible schedule that accommodated her life as athlete and was willing to meet and work with her on short notice and for long periods of time. If you need a tutor, Nathan is tremendous. My daughter learned the subjects, got good grades and is ready to move on to the next level.

Thank you so much Karen! Like I said it was a pleasure!

Nathan was a really good tutor and knew how to attack a problem, no matter what type of question I asked. He is very informative about Physics, which is a good thing, but also means he'll be long winded in his explanations of why this is a certain answer. All in all, he was really good.

Nathan helped me to pass an entrance exam that I needed to take to get into a nursing program. He was very effective at explaining the material I found most difficult and the areas that I needed to brush up on. I highly recommend Nathan.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

Algebra is the abstraction of representing values in an expression with symbols and the idea that those symbols, known a variables, could take on any possible value in a range of possible values. The manipulation of these variable expressions is algebra.

Algebra is the abstraction of representing values in an expression with symbols and the idea that those symbols, known a variables, could take on any possible value in a range of possible values. The manipulation of these variable expressions is algebra. Algebra 2 specifically deals with polynomials and their factorization, quadratic equations and graphing the parabola!! Exponential functions and the exciting number e, last but not least sequences and series.

Um.. can you say rates of change? Learn the Derivative and learn the Integral and you can measure and calculate the summation of any thing changing continuously during its summation. Bam!!

I have been playing since I was a child. I revisited the game extensively in 2012-2015 and played with some serious Central Asia and Asian players while stationed in Afghanistan with the military. During that time I was being tutored by a strong player daily. I have read a few chess books and own a small library of books on everything from beginner play and mating, to openings, strategy and tactics. I also own several sets including a large instructional competition set and appropriate timer.

What a beautiful and exciting subject and tasteful to a physicist. Differential Equations are simply the mathematical representations of how things change. Their solutions are formulas representing those changes either explicitly or implicitly. Lastly, the initial value problem (I am not fond of that name) is a solution to a differential equation combined with certain prescribed conditions (the initial conditions that do not necessarily need to be initial). This combination gives a value for the dependent variable in terms of a value for the independent variable. When it comes to classification, each class will have different methods of solution and varying levels of difficulty anywhere from very easy to impossible at this current time. The most important class distinction is between linear and non-liner equations. The linear equations are quite easy to solve and have a large amount of theoretical structure available to analyze them. The non-linear although sometimes solvable are much more difficult and more often than not impossible to solve. In a similar way, Differential Equations are also grouped into first order equations and second and higher order equations and this has to do with the highest order derivative of the dependent variable. Other classifications are Autonomous, Non-Autonomous, Exact, Separable, Homogeneous and Non-homogeneous. The highlight of my study in differential equations was writing a rough proof and presenting it to my teacher. The proof shows how a fundamental set of solutions which have a non-zero Wronskian for some value of the independent variable is logically equivalent (using linear algebra) to a set of vectors in a vectors space constituted by every possible solution to the equation with each vector being and individual solution, and the set of vectors being a basis for the vector space.

I was very surprised how much of Discrete Math was really about logic. It really opened my mind to the areas of logic, proof and the fundamental ideas that most of math rests upon. How exciting!! It was really exciting about halfway through the class when I realized I could just about think of any simple math mathematical concept and right a proof for it. This ability really emphasized the importance of number theory!! The whole of mathematics rests on the existence of numbers such as integers, rational and irrational numbers. I have yet to do any study on number theory but I am sure I will and it will be interesting. The Boolean algebra helped a lot with my study in digital logic gates. And lastly, I enjoyed the structured proofs of mathematical induction and was able to help my classmates with them extensively.

The fundamental skill for almost every media and composition itself is drawing. It is leaning to see, and training your hand to follow. Learn to draw well and you can learn paint, sculpt, photography, you name it.. Starting with things like value shading, measuring your subject, composition and texture you can move on to things like figure drawing, portraits, action and style. Personally my art trainer really emphasized the importance of training while doing, i.e. draw, draw, draw everyday!!! But I know I can provide the structured progression that will guide a young art hopper into discovering their inner Da Vinci. I also can provide a formidable portfolio of my work.

After taking linear algebra I would now consider it more of a study of the properties on linearity instead of a study of algebra. In fact, there is scarcely any algebra to do, its all linear and and well easy!! The class teaches many useful notations including Vector notation, matrix notation and system of equation notations and all of them are just different ways to represent the same linear relationships. I found the concept of Vector Spaces to be particularly interesting and later used it to reanalysis some theoretical structure in Differential Equations in the form of a rough proof. The proof shows how a fundamental set of solutions to a given Differential Equation which have a non-zero Wronskian for some value of the independent variable is logically equivalent (using linear algebra) to a set of vectors in a vectors space constituted by every possible solution to the equation with each vector being and individual solution, and the set of vectors being a basis for the vector space. I have also found the reduced row-echelon form of a augmented matrix method to be very useful for solving systems of equations and I will never go back to my old, rough, plug-and-play methods even though it is only a matter of notation.

If you want to learn to paint you must first learn to draw. No exceptions. If you can't draw, rest assure, I can teach you. Now, for painting it is all about planning your composition, style and paint choices well and then learning the technique of your particular medium and style. Do this successfully several times and you will realize that you can learn any type of painting there is including oil, acrylic, and water based and methods such as brush, pallet knife and finger.

Physics is the combination of empirical science and mathematics. If you like both you should love physics!! It is very important that you have a good foundation in algebra and trigonometry in order to attempt physics; I also suggest a general understanding of calculus for physics one and two. Whether you are talking Mechanics, Oscillations and Waves, Thermodynamics, Electricity and Magnetism, Light and Optics or Modern Physics all of them combine theories or laws based on empirical backing and various mathematical methods to first measure and then quantify something in nature. Once you do enough problems you will begin to retain the formulas involved and gain a knack for problem solving itself. Would you like to be a modern day Archimedes or Einstein, or even just pass the course? Let me tutor Physics.

Pr-Calculus is a combo of Algebra, Trig and a few other fill in the void mathematical concepts to provide a nice solid foundation to be ready to start an exploration of Calculus!!

What is trigonometry? Well it is the geometry of the triangle. And more specifically, it is for the most part the geometry of the right triangle. We will also introduce some transcendental operators: Sine, Cosine, Tangent, Secant, Cosecant and Cotangent. But don't be scared!!! Once you get the hang of how a right triangle works, you will think they are easy to figure out.
