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.

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, 7 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!

Amazing Tutor

Scott is an amazing tutor. While other tutors declined my requests for help due to it being late, Scott helped me and I went from being worried about my final to feeling very confident! Great guy!

Adam, 2 lessons with Scott

He really help me understand my problems and taught tips and tricks. He also helped me with future lessons. He was also very nice and I had no problems with how he explained things.

Helpful Tutor

Scott has been an incredibly helpful tutor in pre calculus. My daughter enjoys her sessions as Scott's teaching style gives her great understanding of the subject with new found confidence. She will pass the class thanks to Scott...very glad we found him.

Marielle , 9 lessons with Scott

Excellent tutor, very patient!

My daughter really felt like Scott helped her understand Algebra. He was very patient while helping her with her homework, giving her tips that made it seem much easier than she thought it was before.

Physics simplified

By going over basics, including examples and practice, I was able to finally understand it. I appreciate that Scott made time to help me before my test. He obviously knows his topic conceptually and explains it in a way I can grasp.

Marie, 17 lessons with Scott

Scott gave clear instruction.

My son took an AP Physics class. He was very happy with class. Scott gave clear instruction. My son wants to return for future instruction. He also gave feedback to parent.
