About Brian


Bio

I am a physics Ph.D student at the University of California, Riverside. I have worked as a Mathematics tutor there for around 3 years. I graduated from St. John's College with a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts, which breaks down into a double major in the History of Math and Science, and Philosophy, and a double major in Classical Studies and Comparative Literature. I have tutored Calculus 1 through Calculus 4 at the University of Pennsylvania. These courses cover topics ranging from...

I am a physics Ph.D student at the University of California, Riverside. I have worked as a Mathematics tutor there for around 3 years. I graduated from St. John's College with a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts, which breaks down into a double major in the History of Math and Science, and Philosophy, and a double major in Classical Studies and Comparative Literature. I have tutored Calculus 1 through Calculus 4 at the University of Pennsylvania. These courses cover topics ranging from Multi-Variable Calculus and Linear Algebra to Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations. Privately I tutor a wider range of Mathematics as well as Standardized Test Preparation. Previously, I was also involved in Physics research at the Laboratory for Research on the Structure of Matter at the University of Pennsylvania. Finally, I taught a multivariable calculus class at Kohelet Yeshiva High School in Merion Station.

The subjects that I am most passionate about are Physics, Mathematics, and Philosophy. My favorite subjects to tutor are Integral Calculus, Infinite Series, and Partial Differential Equations, because problems in these subjects often require a significant amount of ingenuity and cleverness. I love tutoring because I think that figuring out a problem that was extremely difficult is one of the most rewarding and pleasing things that one can do, and I like to help others achieve this end. With this is mind, I think that it is absolutely crucial to teach a student how to think about a particular topic or kind of problem in general, instead of teaching them how to solve a particular problem. The problems must be used as examples of a more general method. I also have tutored other mathematics courses to high school and college students outside of The University of Pennsylvania for almost a year. Outside of tutoring, I like skiing, swimming, and reading fiction novels.

I am an outstanding Mathematics tutor because I am very good at pinpointing what exactly a student does not understand. By watching the student attempt to

GRE

GRE

I have been tutoring GRE test preparation for 3 years. I will diagnose particular areas in which you need the improvement and then focus on those areas in our sessions and in assignments that I give you to do. In addition, I can provide a lot of general test strategies and methods. My scores are: Verbal reasoning 164, Quantitative reasoning 169, Analytical writing 6.0

Differential Equations,

Differential Equations

I have taken a course in linear algebra, half of which focused on ordinary differential equations. I have also taken a graduate level class focused entirely on differential equations. Furthermore, I have taught individual students as well as groups of students on the subject.
Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

I have taken a course in linear algebra, as well as an advanced electromagnetism course and an advanced quantum mechanics course, both of which utilize linear algebra regularly. I have also tutored students at the University of Pennsylvania on this subject.
Logic,

Logic

My undergraduate degree program required frequent usage of logic. In addition, essentially all advanced mathematics and physics courses use mathematical logic frequently. I have 5+ years of experience both analyzing and constructing mathematical proofs.
