About Cole

Sometimes the time you spend in a classroom is just not enough. Most of us are capable of understanding just about anything given enough time and practice. I really enjoy being able to offer my help to struggling students and it has been extremely fulfilling to see the students I have helped succeed in their classes.

I have 3 years of tutoring experience and I tutor children ages 6 and up. I specialize in mathematics (Calculus, Differential Equations, Linear Algebra, etc.) and physics. I have recently graduated from the University of Washington as a Physics major and a Mathematics minor and plan to pursue my PhD.

I like to help students with completing the homework and concepts that they struggle with by working on as many examples as possible to help give familiarity to a particular subject. I aim beyond just knowing how to solve problems by helping students get an intuitive feel for the material. When working with younger students especially, I try to take some time during every lesson to build a stronger mathematics base by testing their skills on basic multiplication so that they can avoid relying on a calculator. I love to hear feedback from the student or parents. If a particular method does not work for someone, I like to know so that I can suit their needs. I don't feel comfortable charging people for something that doesn't work.

I try to be as flexible as possible with hours and location. I prefer to meet at the University because the libraries there have great spaces and private rooms can be reserved but I am willing to travel to homes or coffee shops to help accommodate a busy schedule. I am even happy to do remote lessons if traveling on a particular day may be impractical.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you succeed!

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.

Linear Algebra

When obtaining my associate of science at North Idaho College, I took linear algebra and obtained high grades. After taking three years off of school, I retook the class as a refesher course and again obtained good grades. The material covered in linear algebra is also covered extensively in many of the classes I have taken since such as Elementary Mathematical Physics, Particles and Symmetry, as well as Quantum Mechanics.

Great tutor! — Cole is doing a super job helping my son with precalculus. He's coming away from the sessions with energy, enthusiasm, and confidence in himself, and his grades have improved tremendously. So pleased with the results after only a few sessions! Two thumbs up for Cole, we highly recommend him. ...
