“**Wonderful tutor for advanced math, physics, and other sciences**”

Hello! I am a physicist with a B.S. from Caltech and a masters at UC Santa Barbara. I've been a tutor at Caltech in a few advanced physics and math courses and have been tutoring for the last few years. I'm currently a graduate student in Mechanical Engineering at Santa Barbara, studying dynamics of automated vehicles.

I love teaching

Eugene is approved to conduct lessons through Wyzant Online. Wyzant Online allows students and tutors to work remotely via video, audio, and collaborative whiteboard tools. For more information about how online tutoring works, check out Wyzant Online.

If you’re interested in online lessons, message Eugene to get started.

We hired Eugene to help our high school senior with challenging calc BC and linear algebra classes. He also helped our student with SAT II exam prep for physics. Eugene is an excellent tutor. He is very personable and has a complete mastery over the subject matter. Because of his CalTech training, he was able to go far deeper than other tutors we had but at the same time he knows how to present and teach even the most difficult concepts with simplicity and clarity to those encountering them for the first time. And he made the sessions fun, so that our student looked forward to them.

I would highly recommend Eugene for students such as ours -- very good students who are in advanced STEM programs in high school and want to continue that focus in college. As an added bonus, Eugene was also a very useful source of insight into colleges and careers in science. We give him the highest possible recommendation.

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.

I have about 10 years of mathematics experience stemming from coursework, research, and occasional math competitions. I have tutored several middle-school and early high-school students in the area and in Washington, DC, in mathematics to great reviews.

I have been actively using Calculus as a student for the past seven years and in my research for the last four. Calculus underlies nearly every aspect of physics and so I have developed a deep, intuitive understanding that I hope to pass on to my students. Over the course of my tutoring I have had to work through both advanced and simple topics of Calculus with my students.

I have taken the standard Caltech course in differential equations, the graduate course in differential equations, and my thesis is on differential equations of ions in an ion trap.

I've taken Geometry in my 8th grade year so I know a lot about the sorts of pitfalls involved in studying the subject. Additionally, physics is a very geometric heavy field so I'm sure I can be of help!

Having taken the GRE en route to applying to grad school, I have worked through the test enough times to know that it is a fundamentally teachable exam. Whether it is the general GRE or the physics GRE, studying for it at an appropriately abstract level helps you make gains that rote practice will not. I hope to help students apply this high-level understanding of the GRE to help them make rapid improvements.

I have taken the undergraduate and graduate course work in Linear algebra. Additionally, physics is often referred to as the science of linear algebra and consequently I've picked up a lot of the more complex methods from studying operators in graduate quantum mechanics courses.

I have taken a class on numerical methods at Caltech that was done half in mathematica, half in Matlab. I am currently working on a physics research project studying the structure of a new type of material, a quasicrystal, and the code I am writing for the project is also in mathematica.

I have done three years of physics research, all of which was in MATLAB. I've simulated synchronization properties of nano-cantilevers, created quasicrystals, and simulated ion trap dynamics. I spend approximately 5-7 hours a day coding in MATLAB.

I have taken a course in numerical methods that was partially taught in python. I have taken the standard computer science course at Caltech which is also taught in python.
