About Devin

With some creativity, and a bit of music, you can think through physics and math problems like the greats!

Nearly every student finds these to be the most terrible of subjects. I once felt the same way. My teacher would rant and nothing clicked. I thought physics and math were languages I would never understand. It's not that you're not smart enough. It's just that everyone has their own unique way of learning. Whatever the subject, from basic math to college level physics or calculus, I am confident we'll find the best method of learning for you. Ask me the same question 100 times. I'll give 100 answers plus more until we finally understand what's going on. Let's turn something stressfully hair-ripping, into something fun and engaging!

As an undergraduate at Loyola University Chicago, I tutored college physics I & II as well as mathematical methods in physics. An open door policy to the physics study room encouraged students of all levels to walk in at any time for help, free of charge. In this fashion, I've tutored both individuals and groups of students. It was our aim that students would walk out with more confidence and a new capacity to solve problems on their own. Physics and math is a puzzle. It takes a little imaginative motivation.

Beyond physics and math, I have taught beginner and intermediate level piano to individuals from 8- 23 years old. Interests have ranged from Chopin's preludes, to jazz classics. For some, learning a favorite song is the best way to dive in. For others, learning to read, and understand the theory behind the music is more beneficial. Music is awesome, and having fun with it is just as important as the learning process!

From math to music, there is no one-size-fits-all learning. Let's tackle homework problems and examples together. We'll build an arsenal of tools that will give you the confidence to solve the most difficult of problems and walk into the test feeling awesome! Afterwards, let's jam!

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.

Algebra 1

Algebra is a practical puzzle. I help students build the tools to solve any math puzzle. Whether practical or abstract, We'll break it down until it's child's play!

Precalculus

I have tutored college physics and math. Both rely heavily on precalc and therefore required me to revisit key concepts with students during tutoring sessions.

Trigonometry

I have experience tutoring college math and physics, but since the subjects rely heavily on Trig and geometry, I can help in these areas as well.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor — My son had problems with the unit that he didn't learn since he was absent from school. We decided to hire a tutor that lived in our neighborhood. Devin was a great help. We are considering even starting lessons on regular basis. ...
