About Darrell


Bio

I have tutored Math and Physics every year as TA when I was in College through the academic center, and at the IIT Chicago ARC center for 2 years of my PhD program.

The math involved with a physics degree includes intensive use of derivatives, chain rule, concepts from Calc I (High School - Calc AB), single and double integration, substitution, partial fractions, taylor series, concepts from Calc II (High School - Calc BC), Triple integration, partial derivatives, line and surface...

I have tutored Math and Physics every year as TA when I was in College through the academic center, and at the IIT Chicago ARC center for 2 years of my PhD program.

The math involved with a physics degree includes intensive use of derivatives, chain rule, concepts from Calc I (High School - Calc AB), single and double integration, substitution, partial fractions, taylor series, concepts from Calc II (High School - Calc BC), Triple integration, partial derivatives, line and surface integrals, concepts from Calc III and other subjects such as Differential Equations and Linear Algebra.

Many students have a harsh transition when learning intro college Physics 1+2 from high school and I work to build their foundation. Students backgrounds in high school can vary a lot and I have worked with those that need only a small amount of supplemental encouragement to finish understanding a concept and getting the correct answer (checking their math and assumptions) to fully teaching a concept from the fundamentals in a workshop manner. Physics as a subject is quite fascinating, it will in general challenge your thinking skills in a unique way (how math and reality explain each other) and I want to relieve frustrations that are common when learning all the various topics in a short timespan of a school year or semester.

Whether you want to get through physics class to finish your college degree and keep a high GPA or want to ensure your student in high school to be properly prepared for a college degree in science or engineering, lets do it together!

I have my BS in Physics, which involved learning and project use of MATLAB. I have done a lot of data analysis in MATLAB for my PhD in Material Science, using smoothing functions to properly plot scattered data. I also have be endorsed by those working in Military Defense and Aerospace for my MATLAB skills.

Jeff, 2 lessons with Darrell

Sophisticated and very understanding tutor!

Darrell is an incredible tutor. He has helped me through various MATLAB homework, many of which I would not be able to do on my own. Through the process of his guidance, one can pick up the nitty gritty details of really important topics. I've never had a bad time working with him, and recommend his help.

Rajveer, 5 lessons with Darrell

Kind, knowledgeable, and patient tutor.

Darrell helped me learn how to code in Matlab. Prior to Darrell’s lessons, I was quite weak at using the language, but after exploring the language with a such a great tutor, I am able to use the language efficiently with my peers and my professors, whether it be in class or while working in my lab. I would definitely recommend Darrell as an intelligent and very patient tutor for anyone who would like to immerse themselves in the world of coding.

Extremely knowledgeable and translates it well

Darrell is a very talented teacher, he knows his stuff and can communicate his knowledge well. My son wasn't thrilled with the idea of a tutor but working with Darrell has changed his mind. Darrell has been able to identify the areas my son needs help with and is helping him to build a strong foundation in Calculus 1 so he will be well prepared for the next 3 Calculus classes he will be taking in college. Highly recommended.

Cindy, 16 lessons with Darrell

Knowledgeable and patient

Darrell is a thorough and effective precalculus tutor who helped to improve my grade. He was available, enthusiastic, very organized and explains things well. He is a good teacher.

Basic Programming with MATLAB

Today we discussed for loops, arrays, indices involved with Sterling function. There were two problems that were suggested by myself. Darrell presented the solution that was very reasonable to me. We also discussed the MATLAB software briefly. Included was the logic of the algorithm that was needed to bring about the proper results. Darrell included trouble shooting techniques that are essential for any programmer or software developer. I highly recommend Darrell's services.

Otis, 1 lesson with Darrell

Very Knowledgeable!

Thank you for a great tutor session. Thank you for being flexible with the time. You were able to help me with all of my question from my past test. You understood every question I asked.

Terri, 3 lessons with Darrell

Knowledgeable and to the point

Helped identify the areas my daughter has been having trouble on tests and pointed what to look out for. She is having trouble with complex word problems and Darrell simplified understanding them and what concepts to use for what kind of problems. She need to work on lot more problems to be more comfortable.

Haritha, 2 lessons with Darrell

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

My daughter was falling behind in AP Physics I, specifically the unit on Rotational Motion, and was very unprepared for a test in 2 days. Over 5 hours, Darrell went through her 75 page packet helping her understand the concepts and work through problems. She was so much more comfortable afterward and felt good about the test. Darrell knew all the material and which concepts were likely to be emphasized on the test. He was a tremendous help and my daughter would go to him again if needed.
