About Bjorn


Bio

Hi, I'm Bjorn, a recent PhD in mathematics. I have extensive (5+ years) experience tutoring in both mathematics and physics at the high school and university levels. Unlike most tutors, I only take on students in subjects that are closely related to my areas of academic specialization and experience.

I hold a PhD in mathematics. I also hold a Bachelor's degree in mathematics. I have taught both at the university level in large undergraduate lectures and tutored students 1 on 1. Through this...

Hi, I'm Bjorn, a recent PhD in mathematics. I have extensive (5+ years) experience tutoring in both mathematics and physics at the high school and university levels. Unlike most tutors, I only take on students in subjects that are closely related to my areas of academic specialization and experience.

I hold a PhD in mathematics. I also hold a Bachelor's degree in mathematics. I have taught both at the university level in large undergraduate lectures and tutored students 1 on 1. Through this experience, I have a good knowledge of the common "sticking points" for students and the best ways to overcome these. That being said, I am committed to working with each student individually to determine the most effective methods to help them learn.

I also have a Master's degree in theoretical physics. I have experience teaching physics discussions and labs at the undergraduate level. When it comes to introductory physics, I work with students to develop their knowledge of fundamental concepts before introducing them to problems that illustrate these ideas in action.

I work with students to develop their understanding of the material; they will be well-prepared for their next exam and also able to assimilate and apply subsequent concepts. Contact me to get started.

I have lectured calculus at the university level for two years. I also have extensive experience preparing students, one-on-one, for calculus exams.
SAT Math,

SAT Math

I've taught SAT math for an elite London (UK) tutoring agency (who would charge a multiple of my hourly rate) for many years. I know the test inside an out: from the most important skills needed to answer questions to the common "trick questions" found on the exam.
Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Physics, Precalculus

Knowledgeable and skilled tutor

Bjorn saved my degree. I had failed Differential Equations twice and needed to pass it for my major. Bjorn was patient and was able to help with many of my questions. He never made me feel stupid, even when I struggled with the easiest concepts. Bjorn worked with me through all my problems and was extremely flexible around my schedule. I can honestly say I would not have passed Differential Equations without his tutoring.

He makes the rough places plain.

Not much to say beyond that. I was having trouble in my PDE course and even going to the professor didn't clarify things. I have been able to catch up and have better understanding as to why I am doing something beyond blindly following. Given I still am not a top professional in PDE, but I am leagues ahead of where I was. Whether it was confident based or understanding.

Excellent Mathematician!

I had one session with Bjorn and it was beyond excellent. He is very patient and super intelligent. He’s very comfortable with explaining advanced math topics. Explains material very clearly. I’m looking forward to have other sessions with him.

Great, professional tutor

I contacted Bjorn kind of last-minute for some advanced topics in Differential Equations et. al. He was kind of busy but since I was working with a due-date, he managed to cut some time out of his schedule and I really appreciate it! He was extremely punctual, flexible with the topics we covered, and knowledgeable on a range of advanced Math subjects.
