About Scott

I am an experienced high school Math and Physics teacher living in Anchorage, Alaska. I have taught and tutored in Algebra, Geometry, Precalculus, Calculus, and Physics, and can students grasp and succeed in these challenging subjects! I can also tutor in college level math subjects such as Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, Number Theory, and more. I am especially adept at cutting through jargon and making sure that students attain a demonstrable mastery of the subjects, using rules, memory devices, clear cut examples, and real world applications.

I am available not only for in-person tutoring in the Anchorage area, but also online sessions. Working late on the East Coast? Take advantage of the fact that I'm four hours earlier than you! Available on short notice as needed.

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.

Algebra 2

I am a math tutor and teacher with 7 years experience, with hundreds of hours and dozens of satisfied clients

Physics

I taught Honors and AP Physics at Albert Einstein High School in Kensington, Maryland. The AP class attained mostly 4's and 5's on their tests, reportedly the best average ever for our school. I tutored many students in Physics (both AP, calculus-based and non-calculus) for Potomac Tutors in Potomac, Maryland

Great tutor

Scott honed in on exactly the problems that our daughter was having and helped her correct them. He is really engaging, easy going, and very good and explaining a very tough subject. He is an excellent tutor!
