I am an experienced high school Math and Physics teacher, currently in the Washington DC area. I have taught and tutored in Algebra, Geometry, Precalculus, Calculus, and Physics, and have helped dozens of students 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 Washington area, but also online sessions. Available on short notice as needed.

extremely nice!

He is always happy to tutor me. Teaches me tricks for my test. Definitely recommend if you’re struggling to understand math!

Michael, 2 lessons with Scott

Excellent Calc and Physics Tutor

My daughter has had several physics and math tutors and said Scott is by far the best. He is able to quickly understand student needs and break down complex concepts into easily digestible parts. He is also great for visual learners like my daughter who need some to not just explain the concepts, but walk her through step by step solutions.

Lisa, 2 lessons with Scott

Knowledgeable tutor

Scott gave general guidance in how to solve AP Calc questions and after that my son was confident in tackling problems. Scott was very patient and went over every questions my son had very thoroughly. Definitely recommend Scott for AP Calc

satisfied customer

Scott helped my daughter with some challenging precalculus concepts. She said she liked the way he communicated and that he helped her understand the problems. I thought he was very professional, punctual and good-natured.

Patricia, 1 lesson with Scott

Patient and Super knowledgeable!

My son Has always struggled with math and in fact has a learning difference specific to math. Scott has helped him bring his geometry grade from a low C to a high B! He is patient, knowledgeable and helps build his confidence!

Jessica, 4 lessons with Scott

Amazing and patient

Scott met my son right where he was and built on (what little) he understood. We had a short window to prepare for exams so sessions were intense bit through patience and high level of knowledge, scott was able to exceed my expectations. I highly recommend him.

Erika, 6 lessons with Scott

Great teacher !

It seems as my son, really loves scott, that teaches him patiently with a lot of knowledge. He understood what is the ‘problem’ with my son’s performance and came out with a proper solution for it. I would definitely recommend scott!

Ronen, 16 lessons with Scott

Great!

Explained topics very well. Liked when questions were asked to help me better understand the topic. Definitely would recommend to others

Kamryn, 3 lessons with Scott

Perfect Tutor

My daughter likes Scott; she said she likes the way he explained things. As I hovered in the background I heard him giving encouragement and confirming that she knew the concepts. I was so surprised to hear that; because she gave me the impression she was really struggling with the concepts. He hit on the fact that she needed more confidence about her work. We’ll be scheduling with Scott again!
