About Isaac

Hi, my name is Isaac and I'm looking for opportunities to tutor and help teach math and/or physics. I studied math at the Univ. of Maryland and am comfortable teaching math ranging from pre-algebra to college level calculus. I also have previous experience tutoring mathematics particularly, SAT Math, SAT II Math (both level 1 and 2), and AP Calculus AB.
My own scores on these exams in the past are as follows:
SAT Math-780, SAT Math level 2 - 780, AP Calculus AB - 5, AP Calculus BC - 4

I have also studied engineering at the Univ. of MD and as a result have completed several courses of physics. The subject matter from these courses included mechanics and kinetics, thermodynamics, optics, electricity and magnetism, EM waves, relativistic physics and an introduction to quantum mechanics. I have also tutored students at both the high school and college levels in general physics.

In my past experiences as a tutor, and as a student myself, I realize how discouraging it can be for a student to dedicate their time and energy in a class and not achieve the result that they want. Neither math nor physics are simple subjects and when students struggle with certain concepts or theories they need to be encouraged to ask questions and be given the freedom to openly discuss their ideas and understanding. It is with this approach and mindset that I try to be an effective tutor. Mistakes are an inevitable and necessary part of the learning process and, I take it upon myself as a tutor to maintain a positive atmosphere and be encouraging while working through mistakes.

I am also a soldier in the US Army Reserve and have gone through background checks with the Department of Defense without any issues. My time throughout army service and training has been of great benefit to me in how I work and communicate with other people. I understand the importance of patience and generally like to work in a relaxed but diligent environment. Above all else, the army has reinforced my beliefs that with dedication, hard work, and a positive attitude you can overcome and achieve almost anything.

Thank you for taking the time to view my page, and God bless.

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.

Algebra 1

I've been tutoring math subjects ranging from algebra to calculus. A lot of my students have been upper-level math students, and because mathematics builds on itself, I've always had to maintain a proficiency with algebra.


I teach high school Calc AB/BC and college calculus 1-3.


This has been one of my most popularly requested subjects and as a result I've been constantly exposed to it. This has kept my skills sharp and I've been able to help a number of students with geometry since I started tutoring. One of my more recent students had a D in her geometry course but with help was able to finish with a B.


I can help with both algebra and calculus based physics. This includes AP Physics and physics at the college level.


Pre-calculus has been one of the most highly requested subjects since I started tutoring. I like to think of precalc as an in-depth review of algebra, geometry and algebra 2. I've had a lot of experience with precalc and am very comfortable with it

SAT Math

Helping students prepare for the SAT has been very rewarding ever since I started tutoring in 2005. I can't remember the last time I didn't have a student that I was helping prepare for the SAT. Every student is different and I try to come up with a very tailored approach to help them improve their scores. This includes the entire SAT, including the reading and writing sections, and is not exclusive to just math.
