About Marcin

I was a physics and calculus tutor at the University of South Florida as an undergraduate; where I helped hundreds of students improve their grades, learn study techniques, or just simply coached them through a tough question or concept. I love helping people learn about physics and develop their critical thinking skills, and being a tutor lets me do that while simultaneously being a part of the physics and math community.

The goal of any session with me is for the student to learn how to think through the problems themselves. I do this by using the Socratic method. Instead of giving a solution to a problem, I'll ask the student leading questions to probe them in the right direction. The process of how to think through a problem is what I value much more than simply having the correct answer.

I am generally available 7 days a week and will work with you to find a time that works best for both of us.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you appreciate the power of education!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 worked as a calculus tutor at the University of South Florida Academic Success Center for a year. I tutored all of calculus ranging from simple derivatives all the way up to multivariable calculus. I also used calculus everyday while studying for a Physics Bachelor's, which you may know is a very math intensive degree.

Differential Equations

My most direct qualification for differential equations involve two classes; Differential Equations and Mathematical Methods of Physics. Every upper level physics classes uses differential equations and I took these classes to understand the many methods of solving differential equations to help in my physics classes. I received A's in both of these classes and found the information to be beneficial to the rest of my education.

MATLAB

I did my undergraduate research in MATLAB. My project was to design a random aperture to produce a desired diffraction pattern in the Fresnel region. I have also used MATLAB for various physics laboratory classes for a year and a half. I am familiar with most, if not all, of the basic functions of MATLAB and can help either produce calculations or design graphs and other presentation materials.

Physics

I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree with honors in Physics. I have worked as a Physics tutor at the University of South Florida Academic Success Center for a year. I have tutored a variety of physics classes ranging from conceptual physics to General Physics II and all in-between.

Makes physics easy — Marcin helped with my optics physics and not only helped with specific problems but further explained the reasoning behind concepts. I have a better understanding of the subject and feel more confident since I have started working with him. Great tutor! ...
