In-person lessons

Andrea has tutored me in my second semester of Calculus and she is such a great help. She is very patient and brilliant, being able to think of the problems very quickly. We go back over lessons that I was taught in class, do practice problems, and she answers my detailed questions from my work outside of class. She also has been available for me to email her anytime with a question on homework or reviews. She puts subjects that are difficult in simple terms for me and has given me great advice on how to check my work on tests. She is very easy to contact and has flexible hours to meet up with. I highly recommend her.

My kids are learning a lot from Andrea. Both my 16 year old son and my 16 year old daughter think that she is an excellent tutor. Andrea is prompt, patient, and flexible in scheduling. Five stars!

Andrea is a really helpful tutor who is flexible to work with. She seems to have a very strong knowledge of the subject and incorporates practice problems to help with understanding. She is also very pleasant to work with!

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.

As a physics and math student, I have a lot of experience with differential equations from basic ODEs to nonlinear dynamics.

First starting with my undergrad differential equations course and my mathematical methods of physics course, I was well prepared to begin studies in areas of intermediate physics where differential equations are necessary. They are useful in classical mechanics to describe motion in the form of Hamilton's equations and Euler-Largranian equations, they are a foundation in electrodynamics courses which deal with anywhere from simple circuits to Maxwell's equations--a set of differential equations which give the motion of charges and current in electric and magnetic fields-- which can be combined to form the wave equation, and they are also important in quantum mechanics starting with Schrodinger's equation which describes the change of a quantum state with time.

Besides working with differential equations in all these areas in physics, my research field uses a lot of elements of differential equations. I study cardiac dynamics and other complex dynamical systems, where differential equations play a key roll. The heart is a oscillatory system which has motion that can be described by a propagating wave. The FitzHugh Nagumo differential equations are important in this area because they describe an excitable cell which we can use to then describe waves which propagate through your heart. Other research areas of mine include the Kuramoto model set of differential equations used to describe synchronizing a set of oscillators.

As differential equations are an important part of my area of field and my research in particular, I would definitely be able to help anyone with difficulties in this area of math.

As a physics Ph.D student, a lot of my coursework has used various topics in linear algebra. In 2008, I took a linear algebra course from Boston University and then the material was reinforced in advanced calculus, math methods for physics, differential equations, as well as quantum mechanics and electromagnetism.

I started graduate work in the math department at University of Texas-Austin where I took an applied methods of mathematics course which covered material such as finite and infinite dimensional matrix theory (e.g. orthonormality, eigenvalue problems, symmetric matrices, diagonalization, theory of Banach spaces, compact operators, spectral theory, and Hilbert spaces). Arriving at Georgia Institute of Technology, my physics course work, especially in quantum mechanics, used a lot of matrix theory especially pertaining to eigenvalue problems and adjoint, unitary and Hermitian operators to solve problems in wave mechanics.
