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
