About Raphael


Bio

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...

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 (including proofs in proof-based courses) to help you develop your skills. I have a variety of different styles of teaching that can be customized to the way you learn best. My sessions are very efficient, but I can slow down when needed to, for example, understand how you are thinking about a concept so I can figure out what you are missing, or to explain a concept with which you are having difficulty. I really enjoy helping people!

I’m able to help with challenging material: my undergraduate GPA was 3.94 and my graduate GPA was 3.97. I was one of 4 US students chosen to attend the International Chemistry Olympiad, and was top 20 at the US Physics Olympiad and top 50 at the US Math Olympiad.

I can help in a variety of scenarios, whether you are struggling or are looking to excel or for a deeper understanding, if you are preparing for AP exams or SAT / GRE / GMAT / MCAT, or are preparing for competitions such as the AMC or AIME, F=ma, or the Chemistry Olympiad. I also frequently have students who just want to learn something new or are planning to go back to school in a new subject and need to review. Feel free to reach out and we can discuss the situation!

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!

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.

Alvin, 7 lessons with Raphael

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.
