About Andrew


Bio

I have a BS in physics from Polytechnic Institute of New York and a PhD in mathematical physics from the University of Florida. I also have enough credits all together for a BS in math and did 18 graduate credits of course work in math at UF.
I've done math and physics tutoring on and off during school and have been tutoring for the last 4 years (including a lot of online tutoring).

I have a BS in physics from Polytechnic Institute of New York and a PhD in mathematical physics from the University of Florida. I also have enough credits all together for a BS in math and did 18 graduate credits of course work in math at UF.
I've done math and physics tutoring on and off during school and have been tutoring for the last 4 years (including a lot of online tutoring).

I've taught general physics both with and without calculus (PHY2048, 2049, etc. in Florida). To familiarize myself more at the start with the calc sequence curriculum I had worked through all the problems in the copy center notes for UFs calculus 1,2 and 3 courses. I explain mathematical concepts intuitively and try to work with a students way of approaching a problem. Students coming to me are also welcome to contact me if stuck some material.

I still have an interest in pure math and am reading a text book on Galois theory. I'm very interested in evolution and have read the Selfish Gene, What Is Life? (both the book by Lynn Margulis and the one by Schrödinger), etc. I'm also interested in religious phenomena (including the fairly new cognitive theory of religion), animism
(including shamanism) and the "new atheism" movement.

Calculus,

Calculus

I take a conceptual/intuitive approach to calc, not overly formal, and like to reduce formal definitions to their intuitive content and make frequent use of pictures in illustrating concepts. I've studied such advanced topics as functional analysis, Galois theory and path integrals.

I emphasize concepts and comprehension, so if you're not interested in the material and just want answers to problems, you should probably look elsewhere. Problem solving and conceptual understanding are complimentary; the more you understand the better you can solve the problems. I also emphasize the geometric picture of vector operations; this can help you choose the 'correct' coordinate system for resolving vectors (for a mechanics problem) and understand things like why the acceleration points inward in uniform circular motion, etc.

Physics

He helped our son with the concept of Conservation of momentum and some other concepts related to it. Highly recommend him as a tutor. He is very knowledgeable.

Tobie, 3 lessons with Andrew

Patient and Knowledgable

Andrew helped me understand indeterminate limits, and provided me with various strategies that were easy to understand and thorough. He made sure to explain from the very basics and was constantly making sure I was following along. Would highly recommend.

Adrian, 1 lesson with Andrew

Great first session.

Great first session. He was able to work with my son and explain complex physics topic in easy to understand way.

Jacob, 3 lessons with Andrew

Highly recommended

Andrew has been helping me with my calculus. He is outstanding in his explanation of the material, and his commitment to help me solve and understand every question. I highly recommend taking him!!

Gitty, 21 lessons with Andrew

Very helpful

Worked through Cal 2 problems with me and he was able to make it understandable. I’d definitely use him again in the future.

Christopher, 1 lesson with Andrew

Knowledgeable and patient!

Andrew knew the material well and taught it easy enough for my son to understand it better than his school teacher. Thanks for helping with my son's assignment!

Jessica, 2 lessons with Andrew

knowledgeable tutor

Needed help with ( and still do and am continuing ) physics for physical therapy re-licensing after moving to the States from Europe. Its been many years since Highschool therefore this has been a great help needed.

Desiree, 1 lesson with Andrew

very nice

My son is Grade 7 now ,he likes physics, and just study on Wyzant ,he likes Andrew's lesson, very helpful ,and recommand the materials to study, thank you so much:)

Jerry, 6 lessons with Andrew

Great and knowledgeable teacher.

Awesome! He helped my son at the last minute with a AP Physics worksheet. Thank you so much, and we will use again!

John, 2 lessons with Andrew

Excellent tutor

Andrew was extremely helpful in working through concepts I didn't understand and he also provided very useful examples. He's incredibly smart.
