About Ran


Bio

I am a Baker Professor with 15 years' experience in teaching Physics and astronomy at all levels. I also taught some engineering and math.

Choose me as a tutor, and know no fear!

Problem solving in science and technology, and many other subjects, requires rigorous training, and the most fundamental training comes from studying physics.

Alas, most students are so scared of physics that they spend a better part of their time looking for ways to circumvent `physics thinking' and replace it...

Choose me as a tutor, and know no fear!

Problem solving in science and technology, and many other subjects, requires rigorous training, and the most fundamental training comes from studying physics.

Alas, most students are so scared of physics that they spend a better part of their time looking for ways to circumvent `physics thinking' and replace it with `equation hunting' and a bunch of other bad habits. That's unfortunate, because physics thinking is so much fun!

Physics phobia runs rampant because of two main reason. First is that the subject has a scary aura. Supposedly only geniuses can comprehend it. Of course, there is nothing further from the truth, but a series of unfortunate events in the history of science brought us this `gift'.

The second reason for physics phobia is that physics is strongly associated with another scary topic, mathematics. Math phobia strongly depends on the history of a person. It is usually the result of cultural stigma and spotty teaching. If you have it - you often also have an image of a scary teacher engraved in your mind.

I learned a lot of pedagogy tools to help me teach, and devised a unique method for teaching students. Now I need a bit of cash on the side due to a family situation, and that's lucky for you!

If you don't give WyzAnt payment info I won't be able to help you.

I was never scared of physics, for some reason - and over the last 20 years I learned how to help others overcome their fears, and improve their problem solving skills in physics.

Differential Equations

I am a professor of physics and astronomy at Baker University. I teach upper level courses that require ordinary and partial differential equations (ODEs and PDEs). Since there is no PDE course, and the ODE course is offered sporadically, I teach ODEs and PDEs over several semesters in my upper level courses (Electromagnetism, Dynamics, Astrophysics, Quantum Mechanics).

Kind and patient tutor.

Ran is patient and a mellow teacher who knows his stuff. I think kids feel comfortable in asking him questions which can lead to a better understanding of the subject. I would recommend him for your kid especially if the kid is selective about thing.
