Hello! Do you need help solving a math problem or understanding fundamental concepts in physics or engineering? You may have found the right person to help you pass your exam and complete your homework.

I have been working/studying as an engineer and scientist since 2004, both in academia and in the private sector. I have completed all my degrees in Aerospace and Mechanical engineering with the maximum grades. One of the people that really motivated me to pursue a career in science and engineering was my high school Math tutor. She had a PhD in Math and she was an absolutely amazing teacher. I hope I can transfer some of her methods and creative thinking to my students.

During my graduate studies, I have been tutoring several students at high school and college levels. I tutored one high school for a full year in math and physics helping her improve her grades in both subjects from C to A. I have helped a high school student learning how to code in Python and landing a prestigious summer program in AI at Columbia University. During my PhD, I have taught several classes at NYU -- mostly physics/engineering labs -- helping students going through the assignments and understand fundamental concepts in mechanical engineering (average teacher grade 4.8/5 out of 175 students).

My teaching style is strongly focused on developing basic reasoning and methods, but I am also up for a crash course on a specific topic. I will be happy to help students in math (algebra, calculus, geometry, ODE, PDE) and physics (introductory physics, statics, mechanics, continuum mechanics, fluid mechanics) as well as in all the specific disciplines that are covered in undergraduate classes in aerospace and mechanical engineering (mechanics of materials, materials science, vibrations, etc). I can also help you learn how to code in Python!

MATLAB

MATLAB

During my doctoral studies, I have helped several students learning MATLAB as part of my projects. I am familiar with the fundamentals of coding in MATLAB and with more advanced packages for numerical methods and video processing. Examples of problems that I solved in MATLAB are the deformation of an elastomeric dome (mechanics of materials) and tracking of particles in fluid flows (fluid mechanics).

Calculus

Calculus is a fundamental tool for engineers and scientists. I have a strong experience using calculus in my research and in tutoring students that want to learn this subject. As an undergraduate, I struggled in my first calculus class, and I know how steep the learning curve can be. I believe that with patience and the right guide is possible to solve even the hardest problems!
Physics,

Physics

Physics has always been one of my favorite subjects. Over the years, I developed a deep understanding of the fundamental concepts in Mechanics and Dynamics, as well as the basics of Optics and Electromagnetism. I have tutored several students in Physics with excellent results, at both high school and college levels. I believe that even complex concepts can become easy to understand if explained with clarity, and patience. For this reason, my students at NYU always appreciated my teaching style (average teaching grade 4.8/5 over 175 students).

I completed a PhD in mechanical engineering from NYU two years ago, and I am still actively working in research. I taught for 3 years the Mechanics of Materials Lab and Statics Lab at NYU. Over the years, I tutored several students, helping them get ahead in their classes and in their research projects. My focus topics are Mechanics of Materials/Statics, Vibrations, and Materials Science, but I can also help you in Physics and Math, as well as in Fluid Mechanics, Dynamics, and Flight Mechanics/Dynamics.

Great teacher!

Filippo C. really helped me understand the topics and was super patient with all the questions I asked during our meeting. He took the time to explain the fundamentals of the topics and the thought process while solving the problems and thoroughly defined each variable.
