I have taught recitation sections in physics at UMCP and college algebra at University of Maryland University College. I won an Outstanding Teaching award at UMCP.

I have a PhD in particle physics from the University of Maryland at College Park and many years' experience in industry. I have taught recitation sections in physics at UMCP and college algebra at University of Maryland University College. I won an Outstanding Teaching award at UMCP. I have also provided a lot of assistance to my 13 year-old son in his math education. My approach to teaching is intuitive. I like to guide students with questions to help them develop their own understanding. While I do have a strong mathematical background, I'm not going to overwhelm you with things you won't understand. We'll work together in a relaxed way and you won't find yourself the least bit intimidated. I'll help you overcome any math anxiety you might be feeling and to feel confident in yourself. We can work on math and science at any level and if you want to prepare for SAT's we can do that too. If you hate math/science I'm not saying I have some magic power that will make you like it. But our sessions will be enjoyable and you won't be dreading them.

GRE

GRE

I scored 820 in math, 730 in verbal. I have exceptional facility with GRE-type standardized test questions and have made outstanding scores on the GRE as well as other similar tests. I have a PhD in particle physics and worked for many years in the intensively mathematical subject of electromagnetics. I have published a number of papers in recognized journals, so I claim excellent writing skills. I am a phi beta kappa graduate of MIT, because I possess strong verbal as well as mathematical skills.

Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

I took linear algebra as an undergraduate at MIT and received an A grade. I have a PhD in particle theory. Linear algebra is important for Solutions to the Schrodinger Equation may be regarded as vectors in the space of functions. I have extensive familiarity with quantum theory, and the mathematics of linear algebra is essential to it.. I have also used linear algebra professionally. I am the author of a computer code written for the DoD that computes optimal array weights for an adaptive array antenna operating in a desired-signal, interfering-signal, and noise environment. The mathematics behind this code is linear algebra.

Knowledgeable tutor who can clearly convey concepts.

Paul has been helping my daughter with Advanced Algebra. He is able to explain the concepts clearly and has helped her worked through her mistakes but on tests. I think this will help her to do well on her midterm exam.

Lisa, 4 lessons with Paul

Excellent Tutor

Paul is an excellent tutor. My daughter is now doing very in physics. Prior to working with Paul, she was struggling.

Roland, 22 lessons with Paul

Not a good fit

Paul did not accomplish task with regards to tutoring our daughter. She needed someone to review the concepts in oscillations and waves and he completed some of the problems, others he was unsure on how to do, he left blank. This approach of the tutor completing the assignment might work for some, but our daughter would like to be able to solve the problems on her own. Nice person, but not the right tutor for us.

Awesome Tutor!!!

Professor Paul H. is an outstanding tutor. He is extremely patient also very easy to reach and willing to show up to tutor you at a drop of a second. He explains the subject matter you wouldn't normally think of making problems easier and less time consuming. I highly recommend him as a tutor.
