About Raphael


Bio

I majored in math and physics at Yale, and received a PhD in statistical physics at Harvard. I have also worked in scientific areas throughout my career. As such, I have very deep expertise in math and science, and I enjoy passing that on to students.

While I am new to Wyzant, I am not new to tutoring and teaching. I first began tutoring 30 years ago and have continued to do so over the years, with a mixture of formalized tutoring, classroom teaching, and job-based training. I enjoy...

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.

Math

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!

physics

Very helpful review just prior to my test. covered the basics required for the test and cleared up a lot of questions I had. Teaches in a manner that makes it easy to learn and simple to understand.

Connor, 11 lessons with Raphael

Phenomenal Tutor

Raphael'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!

Christine, 54 lessons with Raphael

Really enjoyed my session!

Raphael and I discussed the density of a nucleus and of an atom. Learning was very easy, and I was able to finish problems very quickly with him! I am very happy with my experience. Thanks Raphael!

Sabrina, 2 lessons with Raphael

Very helpful

Raphael was very helpful and I better understand the material. We went over a number of problems and his explanations were clear. I will be using him for more lessons.

John, 12 lessons with Raphael

Helpful session

Raphael helped me with statistical sufficieny problems. He was very knowledgable and able to explain what he was doing in a very clear way. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a stat or math tutor

David, 1 lesson with Raphael

Great Tutor for STATISTICS!

Rafael was so helpful and great at explaining hard to understand concepts for my college required Statistics Class. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Patient teacher with depth of knowledge

Raphael takes time to listen to the student and explains the concept really well. He is very knowledgeable and makes the student comfortable. I would highly recommend him

Yusra, 15 lessons with Raphael

Great teacher

Raphael was patient with my daughter and broke down the concepts of AP Physics C in an understandable way. He has been a savior.
