About Giorgi

Hi, I'm George - PhD physicist with more than 20 years of tutoring experience at all possible levels and with variety of students ranging from gifted kids of elementary school to PhD students of Washington Uni as well as active tutors themselves. I taught at TSU (Georgia) as a junior professor of physics, as teaching assistant at Heidelberg University, (Germany), physics teachers trainer in Teacher Development & Certification Program, as awarded lecturer of physics to deliver science presentations throughout of schools of Georgia, High/middle/Elementary/Home school teacher and active private teacher and lecturer. I think I've enough experience to help you with your questions be this homework problems or deep understanding of concepts you work with. There is some public information available (including feedback from students) about my qualification or teaching experience and I'd glad to provide them if someone wants to know more about me. AS A resume: Tutoring is a job that I like to do the most - I belong to a family having 3 generations of successful teaching and tutoring practice in different subjects but especially in math and science.
Teaching Style:
I'm really patient (even with my own kids!) and start with putting myself in my student's shoes. I'm using variety of tools to deliver knowledge: verbal, visual, graphical, math formulas, examples from everyday life! From my point of view there is no concept or problem which cannot be approached by anyone with any experience at least to some extent. Sure that might take some time and efforts but that's it. Sounds too weird? But I can tell you that there is a way to explain Big Bang or String Theory (some advanced theories in Physics) or Topology (Advanced Math) to elementary school students ... and I've done something similar or even got grant for this.
Hobbies:
My first hobby and supreme job is my family and my kids. The next hobby really is helping people with their struggles to understand something which is important for them and I can help with - that includes my math&physics teaching but goes much more further. My another hobby is Music and singing especially with kids and family.

Thanks for your feedback! I agree concerning the small language difference, especially when it comes to Greek notations in quantum mechanics, which we pronounce a little differently.

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.

ACT Math

I'm holding PhD in Physics. Besides, I'm tutoring math subjects more than 20 years and have recent teaching experience at college as well as middle and high school level. With my experience, any concepts in math or science can be understood by the student - you just need to find correct way to explain it.

Algebra 1

I have tutored Math, including Algebra 1, for more than 20 years with students of all levels (middle/high/college/undergraduate). I hold a PhD in Physics and a certificate for teaching in Math/Phys and Computer Science.

Algebra 2

I have been tutoring Math more than 20 years with students of all levels (middle/high/college/undergraduate). I hold a PhD in Physics and certificate of teacher in Math/Phys/Computer Science with several years of experience as university teacher and school teacher.
Currently, I'm working with home-schooling students as well.

Calculus

I have taught calculus for more than 20 years. Besides, I'm active user of calculus methods in its full strength throughout my research work. My approach while teaching is complete understanding of concepts under discussion by students of any level. In preparation for that, I use wide spectra of examples, thus revealing "the mystery of calculus".

Differential Equations

I'm holding a PhD in physics and have passed qualification exams in all relevant undergraduate and graduate math subjects including linear algebra/calculus I and II/differential equations/functional analysis/special chapters of Mathematics, etc.

Besides, I was holding a position of assistant Professor of Physics in Tbilisi State University for 2 years.

Elementary Math

I have extensive, more than 20 years', experience of tutoring Math, including Elementary Math, with students of all levels (middle/high/college/undergraduate). I have a teaching certificate in Math/Phys/and Computer Science with several years of experience as university teacher and school teacher.

Geometry

I have extensive experience (more than 20 years) of tutoring Math, including Geometry, especially with middle and high school students. I have a PhD in Physics and teaching certificate in Math/Phys/and Computer Science.

Linear Algebra

I have a PhD in physics - degree of Candidate of Physical and Mathematical Sciences. During my undergraduate study I've earned 10 ECTS/credits for linear algebra, Geometry and Vector and Tensor analyses with total of 40 credits in math subjects and have finished undergraduate course with honors. Then I earned 10 Credits in math subjects during my master's course. I also have 20 years of experience tutoring Linear Algebra and Calculus.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I have worked with MS PowerPoint since 2000 and have intensively used it throughout my research, teaching and business activities. My Presentations were presented in top-level meetings and international conferences (e.g. IAEA meeting in Vienna, Austria, Business Center of St.Louis, Clayton, MO etc.) and as a training and teaching material for university students and Bank staff.

Microsoft Windows

I have a 25 years experience working with different versions of windows starting from the very first versions of it windows 3.1. (even from MS-DOs). During my undergraduate course I earned 15 ECTS for computer science course plus 4 ECTS for teaching practice in computer science (the basics of windows system).

Physics

I'm a PhD Physicist - a Research Scholar, former Junior Professor of Physics (before I left for US), Consultant and tutor for more than 20 years. But THE BEST part is that I can simplify for you any challenging concept. Furthermore: afterwards you will be able to explain what I taught you to any other people - that's the real knowledge you can get.

Prealgebra

I have extensive experience (more than 20 years) of tutoring Math, especially with middle and high school students. I have PhD in Physics and certificate of teacher of Math/Phys/and Computer Science.

Precalculus

I hold a PhD in physics as well as certificate of Math, Physics and Computer Science Teacher with more than 20 year of tutoring experience in Pre-Calculus.

Trigonometry

I'm holding PhD in Physics and was tutoring math subjects including trigonometry more than 20 year. I have college/high school/middle school teaching experience as well. Trigonometry concepts can be explained in several different ways. This even gives a chance to math students who are not dedicated to then understand the subject and love it.
