I am a theoretical physicist and I have loved all my life the study of the universe and its secrets through research and continued education. Mathematics and Science have offered modern humans unprecedented awareness. Strong ethical individuals, supported by coherent education and fulfilling work, can sustain peace, produce tangible progress in quality of life and help improve our cultural values. In my opinion an effort to improve this education and our willingness to cooperate and share knowledge with others is a source of happiness and virtue. Promoting an improved rational understanding of the world and the opportunities it opens for young people is why I love tutoring.

I come from a family that values education. My mother, being a Physics professor at high school, gave me the first opportunity to experience teaching and my father created an environment with rich educational resources at home. Their effort to help my education cultivated my natural curiosity and enabled a very successful student life. I always scored in the top 1% in all my classes, homework assignments, high school and university entry exams. Progress in national math competitions allowed me to successfully participate in international math Olympics events before entering university to study Physics. I kept scoring high in exams all my academic life. My parents made possible for me early to take my education in my own hands by cultivating confidence in self study and providing substantial access to educational material. I like to apply what worked for me to my students, adapting to their needs and character.

I firmly believe early well timed assistance protects a student's future in Math and Physics. It prevents learning gaps that prove depressing. You can achieve a breakthrough in self confidence by developing first a strong foundation with organization, frequent practice and disciplined methodology in small steps. Empowered by newfound clarity they get motivated. They gradually recognize they can be good at it. You can use this now

I have extensively used calculus for many years in physics and helped often others. I have tons of books and other resources on the topic.

Physics

I am a theoretical physicist and have helped with all kinds of physics and math many ap and university students before and currently.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

The material used in Precalculus classes is essential math for more advanced topics like Calculus or Probability theory or Complex analysis, Linear Algebra or even Differential Geometry, etc. (it follows Algebra 1 and 2). Naturally it is impossible to avoid being good at the relevant syllabus if you hope to learn that higher math. I have used techniques from these topics and helped others develop problem solving skills in them for many years. Most importantly i have had training in this kind of math (like discrete math, trigonometry, analytical geometry, etc.) for even math Olympics events as a student. I continue to use that kind of math for all kinds of applications daily it seems too. I enjoy sharing these skills with young students and making them confident that math is their friend and a powerful arsenal for science and real life problems.

Very knowledgeable and understanding

He was able to easily break down my complicated probability theory course and help me identify the content that would help me with my career and exams without getting lost in the theoretical parts. He also provided multiple real life examples that made learning very enjoyable and applicable!

Shefali, 3 lessons with Sotirios

Motivating and knowledgeable tutor

Sotirios taught our 9th grader Alg2. He brings in practical examples from real-world as well as historical context sometimes. All those helped in motivating the kid.

Kiran, 3 lessons with Sotirios

Couldn’t recommend more

Takes the time to make sure he knows the material and then teaches it well. Does a great job explaining concepts and answering questions. Cares about the student.

Curtis, 11 lessons with Sotirios

Excellent science lessons

After almost two years of lessons with Sotirios I can say that he is an exteremely knowledgeable, research-oriented, highly intelligent, and dedicated teacher. With his great attitude towards his subjects and his sense of humor he manages to establish great communication with his students and help them realize their highest potential.

Elena, 123 lessons with Sotirios

Excellent physics tutor

Sotirios is an amazing tutor. Enthusiastic about the topics he teaches, patient and in depth. I am very greatful for all his time he spent with my son. Last semester my son got an A in AP physics C which is pretty awesome. Thank you Sotirios!!!

Janie, 27 lessons with Sotirios

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Sotirios is a great teacher. Very patient and great in making your concepts clear quickly. My son is having AP Physics and Multivariable Math lessons with him. Thanks, Mr. Sotirios!

Priyanka, 39 lessons with Sotirios

a good teacher

In the few meetings we have had, I came out learning many topics. He provides a clear high level topics then takes time to clarify all the details. He is highly learned and intelligent.

Alaghusundaran, 8 lessons with Sotirios

amazing teacher

Sotirios is an amazing physics tutor. He knows his stuff, helps me understand the concepts, gives me tips on how to tackle the problems, make friends as he says, and gives me resources to help me. He is patient and understand my questions and is really helpful. He makes so much sense to me. I’d rate him an 12/10 and definitely recommend!

Adnan, 4 lessons with Sotirios

Very knowledgebale yet fun tutor

Our daughter enjoyed Sotirios' simple, clear explanations on those seemly daunting physics topics. My daughter also gained a lot of interests and confidence for the subject through the lecture for Sotirios ! Thank you!
