## Phenomenal Tutor

Christine, 54 lessons with RaphaelRaphael's tutoring sessions were a game-changer for my daughter. She went from being confused by several physics concepts she was learning in high school to being "crystal clear" (her words) and confident on those topics. She said that, because he's just a nice and patient person, the lessons were quite enjoyable, too. We could not recommend this tutor more highly!

Are you struggling in a difficult course and need some guidance?

I typically work with high school and college students primarily in math, physics, chemistry, and statistics. I have a BS in math and physics from Yale and a PhD in statistical physics from Harvard. I'm excellent at being able to explain challenging concepts to people of all levels and abilities. As of this writing, I’ve tutored over 3000 hours with Wyzant and have over 1000 five star ratings. and focus on problem solving...

#### Physics

I tutor across an array of physics topics including general physics - both calculus and algebra based, classical mechanics, electromagnetism, and quantum mechanics at an undergraduate level, as well as high school physics and AP Physics B and C (mechanics and electricity and magnetism). I also tutor mathematical methods in physics as well as a variety of math classes.

Differential Equations,
#### Differential Equations

I was a teaching assistant at Yale in a differential equations class. I tutor both in ordinary differential equations and in partial differential equations. For partial differential equations, my focus is on analytical solutions; I'm not able to help in a course that is highly focused on numerically methods.

Discrete Math,
#### Discrete Math

Discrete math can contain many topics. I am knowledgeable about group theory, ring theory, field and Galois theory, combinatorics, probability and statistics, set theory, number theory, and some portions of graph theory. PhD in statistical physics at Harvard. I'd be happy to look over your problem set to confirm I can be helpful!

Finite Math,
#### Finite Math

Finite math can contain many topics. I am knowledgeable about group theory, ring theory, field and Galois theory, combinatorics, probability and statistics, set theory, number theory, and some portions of graph theory. PhD in statistical physics at Harvard. I'd be happy to look over your problem set to confirm I can be helpful!

Linear Algebra,
#### Linear Algebra

I tutor linear algebra at the undergrad level, both for proof based courses and non-proof based courses. I've also taught several people linear algebra who wanted to learn it independently (while not taking a course).

Raphael has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering **8 questions** submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.

## Great teacher!

He was very patient with my daughter who was struggling with the materials in college statistics class. He is very good taking her through the materials to build a level of understanding.

## Knowledge and patient tutor

He helped me go through some of physics questions I was really struggling with. He took the time to explain them thoroughly and cleared any confusion that I had.

Jerry, 1 lesson with Raphael

## Raphael is the best

Quite literally. He is very talented at probability and statistics and is able to solve MIT-level problems in a breeze. This is filler. This is filler. This is filler.

## very smart and patient !!

Raphael is a ROCKSTAR!! he is very kind and makes learning the material easy and understandable! he truly takes the time to break down the problem and show you step by step how to solve it! 10/10 :)

Marianna, 4 lessons with Raphael

## Excellent Tutor!

I have only completed two sessions with Raphael so far but he is a fantastic tutor. He is helping me tremendously with my college physics II class. He is extremely smart and makes everything very easy to understand, my confidence has boosted already!

William, 7 lessons with Raphael

## Very Knowledgeable tutor

My son is a High school junior. Raphael taught Physics to him. My son enjoyed the session and was very happy that he understood all the concepts that he was previously struggling with.

Meenakshi, 8 lessons with Raphael

## Great

It was great and I enjoy working with him. I would recommend him to others who need the same help.

Jerahmeel, 3 lessons with Raphael

## Incredibly helpful

I'm really glad that Raphael was able to help me out. His rate is a bit high, but he still helps a whole lot! Also, I probably would have failed this class without him.
