Dual Math/Physics Graduate for Proofs, and general Math Tutoring
I recently earned two B.S. degrees in Math and Physics, where I focused intently on detail, and deep understanding. I would study until I could prove my way through my books, and reconstruct results using my understanding and logic. Nothing gives me greater satisfaction than sharing this understanding with other people. I specialize in subjects where students are expected to prove results in math, and require a strong conceptual understanding, as well as technical.

Knowledgeable Tutor
I am taking Advanced Calculus (a very proof heavy class) and Russell has done an amazing job explaining the difficult concepts in a clear and concise manner. He is always willing to go back and ensure a previous concept has been mastered before moving on. Overall an excellent tutor and I would highly recommend him.

Incredibly Knowledgeable about Mathematical Logic
Russell picked up on what was going on with my jargony, complicated text very quickly, It takes mastery to be able to identify these concepts in all the various ways they can be presented so quickly. I am looking forward to my second session with him.

Fantastic proof teacher
If you want to learn how to advance to the next to the theoretic level in math and understand the proofs, Russell is your tutor. This is my third lesson and we are progressing rapidly.
Eric, 21 lessons with Russell
Superior knowledge experienced.
If he asks a question and student doesn’t understand he is very good at reasoning in a different way. Very good at taking problems apart and excellent at explaining until student understands. increases student confidence.

Great Pre-Calculus Tutor
Working with Russell has been great. We started meeting at the library and have switched to video, which I did not think will work but has been great. He is very smart and really helps with understanding the problems.

Rusell was a life saver!
As my son's SAT subject tests were fast approaching he realized he needed some concrete help that no amount of studying on his own was going to accomplish. We found Russell a few weeks before test day and my son spent several hours (6 I think) online with him. He is now feeling confident that he has the tools to do as well as he is capable, and he loved working with Russell. I would absolutely recommend him and don't hesitate to utilize the online option, it's actually extremely helpful.

Truly Understands a Struggling Math Students Situation
Before I meant with Russel I was failing my college calculus class. Starting from what seemed like ground zero, he helped me slowly climb my way up to a passing level. The learning stated off slow, but as I gained confidence the lessons went smoother and smoother. He also provides external links that help out tremendously. Russel is a must have for a tutor and I strongly recommend him.

Great Calculus Tutor
Russell did a great job helping my sonoutbwith calc 3 and helping him make connections between the math and the real world/physics connections. We will definitely schedule more lessons.

A knowledgeable tutor in Linear Algebra
He is very knowledgeable about the specific definitions of linear algebra terminology, and how they all connect together. It was very easy to learn from him the abstract-ness of proving theorems and concepts, especially because he takes time to break it down to its lowest level. It was very easy to understand linear transformations, vector spaces and subspaces after he explained them all by definition, and broke it down to its most basic components, and even provided a plethora of examples and practice problems. Russell is also competent in tutoring in general. He understands that the student should be in charge of directing where the session should go, and that the tutor is not an answer key; the tutor is a guide toward the right direction, through asking questions, doing practice problems with the student, and allowing the student to ask questions about a broad, general area of the subject, rather than simply spending a whole hour explaining a concept and not allowing the student to ask to shift gears to another topic when need be. Overall, Russell is a very helpful tutor in Linear Algebra, and in general, an easy person to converse with while in session.
