“**Great, caring tutor!**”

- Are you "struggling" with mathematics?

- Do you want to improve your grade in math?

- Do you want to take your math tests with greater confidence?

- Do you want to make math more fun?

OR --

- Are you already scoring an “A” in math but want to learn even more, so that you can be fully prepared for the next

Andrew is a patient and attentive tutor, making sure my son understands the math concepts that he has difficulty with. He gives his full attention to the questions my son has in the areas that he has trouble with, and explains the concepts clearly, so he can grasp them and be able to solve the problems more easily. Great, caring tutor!

Andrew is very helpful, knowledgeable and easy to understand. He keeps a pace commensurate with the students ability and understanding of the material being learned.

Andrew is helping my son grasp the principles of AP calculus and it is making a great difference on the principal said he is teaching Brian for his review

Helped me prepare for final exam in linear algebra.

He was very excited to help and was clearly very passionate about math and teaching. I feel much more confident going into my exam and learned a lot about bases and linear transformations (areas I was particularly lacking in before). He was a phenomenal tutor and I would highly recommend him to anyone! :)

Andrew is one of a kind. Very good at explaining and trying to find a way for you to understand any concept. He is also very funny and can relate the material for you to understand and maybe think about a real life example. He is also good at finding what exactly your struggle maybe, either mathematically or just misinterpreting the question. I would suggest working with Andrew if you want to receive in "A" in your desired course.

Andrew and I sat down and worked on homework problems I was struggling with. He helped give me a better understanding and gave me a solid approach towards problems in the future. Overall Andrew was very clear, patient and made the problems interesting. It's all about relating the sometimes difficult topics to something you understand in the real world. I would definitely recommend Andrew to anyone who needs help in physics.

Andy has worked out very well for our son. He is thoughtful, thorough and patient.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

Dr. Andrew G. has a Ph.D. from Caltech in environmental engineering science with a minor in numerical methods. In addition he has over 30 years experience as a practicing atmospheric scientist and dispersion modeler.

The concepts of Linear Algebra are at the heart of (1) numerical methods (used to develop and evaluate solution techniques that are used by computers to solve large numerical systems such as finite element analyses), (2) numerical solutions of overdetermined systems (i.e., "least squares" which are used in atmospheric receptor modeling techniques such as the Chemical Mass Balance model), and (3) statistical models (correlation and multiple regression).

Dr. Gray's research in air pollution includes the use of meteorological and dispersion computer models which involve numerical solutions of large linear (and non-linear) systems. Dr. Gray has also worked with (and helped in the development of) receptor models such as the Chemical Mass Balance Model and other related multivariate factor-analysis techniques. In addition, he has developed computer programs for the efficient (and stable) solution of linear systems (using such methods as Gram-Schmidt orthogonalization).

Topics in Linear Algebra include:

* Systems of Equations and Matrices - Systems of Equations, Row-Echelon Form, Reduced Row-Echelon Form, Gaussian Elimination, Gauss-Jordan Elimination, Matrices, Matrix Arithmetic, Transpose, Inverse Matrices, LU-Decompositions.

* Determinants - The Determinant Function, Properties of Determinants, Method of Cofactors, Determinants by Row Reduction, Cramer's Rule.

* Euclidean N-space - Vectors, Vector Arithmetic, Norm, Dot Product, Cross Product, Projections, Euclidean N-space, Linear Transformations.

* Vector Spaces - Vector Space Axioms, Subspaces, Span, Linear Independence, Linear Dependence, Basis, Dimension, Null Space, Row Space, Column Space, Inner Product Spaces, Orthogonal/Orthonormal Basis, Least Squares, QR-Decomposition, Orthogonal Matrices.

* Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors - Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors, Eigenspaces, Diagonalization, Jordan Canonical Form.
