About Nikolai

In 1992 I left Russia and came to Canada. In 2000 I moved to US. I am very impressed by technological achievements in US and now I decided to contribute my knowledge of Mathematics and Physics to young people, who will add to those achievements' In Russia I graduated fro Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology - similar to MIT in US. I received there a fundamental education in Calculus, Analytical Geometry, Ordinary and Partial differential equations, Theory of Functions of Complex Variables, Quantum Mechanics, Classic Mechanics, Optics, Acoustics. I went to work in Russian Academy of Sciences and simultaneously lecturing for 13 years "Numerical Methods in Underwater Acoustics" in my Alma mater college. I liked to work with students and see how they gain new knowledge from me and I believe this sympathy was mutual.

Remember, that you can not become a professional mathematician, but studying of mathematics will teach you the Mathematical Culture, which is first and foremost a Culture of Thinking.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Calculus

I use calculus for many years in my every day's job.
I created computer algorithms for mathematical theory of wave propagation.

Differential Equations

I was teaching 1 year course:"Mathematical theory of acoustic waves propagation in the ocean" in Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology for 13 years. I have about 50 publication in Russian and English scientific magazines dedicated to the subject. At the core of all that are the methods of solution of partial and ordinary differential equations.
