About Aqil

I have a Ph.D in physics from Harvard and a business degree. Have about 7 years of teaching experience. Love working with students. Available to teach high school or college physics, as well as math topics such as pre-calculus algebra, calculus as well as linear algebra.

As a physicist, I not only know tons of math, but am also pretty good at applying it to physical situations. As a teacher, I am therefore able to really connect math concepts with real world applications and examples. I make it fun and show you how even some of the hardest problems can be made easier by breaking them down into simple steps. Once you know how to do that, it all becomes very easy.

I am very good at connecting the laws of physics taught at the high school or introductory college level with day-to-day observations, and make them look very simple. I also show you that once you have the right picture, problem solving is also a straightforward exercise in following a few steps.
And if you need someone for advance topics like quantum mechanics, then I have a totally unconventional approach for demystifying the mysteries and weirdness associated with them.

Feel free to contact me and ask questions about my tutoring style.

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.

Differential Equations

Differential equations are used in physics all the time. I not only took a differential equations course during my college program, but have also been solving and using differential equations throughout my studies and career. As a physics Ph.D, I can certainly teach this subject.

Linear Algebra

Linear algebra is an integral part of a physicist's math toolkit. I not only took an advance linear algebra class during my college degree, but have continued to use linear algebra during graduate school and my subsequent research on an almost daily basis. My background is therefore perfectly suited for teaching this subject, and as a physicist, I will also be able to bring in lots of real life examples of how it is used to solve real problems, not just do the math in abstract terms.
