I am an experienced tutor that can help students at every grade level with Math and Science. I can provide engaging, effective, instruction in Computer Programming, Math including Algebra I and II, Trigonometry, and Calculus as well as Chemistry, and Physics. I was an excellent science and math student in high school and in college where I majored in Electrical Engineering and Physics and have taught computer programming on the Junior College level.
I have had great success in finding the right tips and tricks that make difficult math and science concepts easier to understand and use. I look forward to the opportunity to generate that success with you.

My college freshman son finds Isaac an outstanding, patient tutor! Isaac is flexible in scheduling and dedicated to the student's learning. We are elated to have him.
Isaac spent many weeks with my daughter discussing and doing problems in AP Calculus BC. My daughter had a very good experience and progressed substantially in this subject. I highly recommend Isaac.
I have been working with Isaac a few times now for my College level Physics 2 course. He is a great resource. Full of very useful knowledge and willing to share every bit to help understand a concept. He is not only patient, and kind but he will work with you through problems with visual interpretations to help better understand his explanations to you.
Made my code much more user friendly and better formatted. Everything he did was extremely helpful and beneficial for my app.
Issac is an excellent tutor and he takes his time while tutoring. Issac listens and allows for the student to work out the problems to make sure they get a clear understanding of how to solve problems on their own. I passed with an A average in my Finance for Business 370 class with Issac tutoring me. I would recommend this instructor to all my classmates, friends and family members. Thanks Issac and I will always use this instructor for my math assistance.
Let me start off by saying I am a very skeptical person so looking for a tutor online was my last solution; that was until I started to seriously fall behind. Issac is amazing. He got straight to business and stayed on task. Not to mention that during the initial contact he responded quickly and I did not have to wait days for a response. He was thorough with not just assisting me but teaching me as well. I have only had one session but, I will without a doubt, be utilizing him again.
Isaac was very helpful in assisting with a last minute assignment. He was patient and supportive during the session. Thank you for everything.
Calculus is always a feared word. Isaac made it less intimidating and I was understanding how to do problems by the end of one session. A+
After the first two sessions my daughter stated that she had learned more in that week than in the last month in the classroom. Isaac is calm and knowledgable and able to explain the concepts clearly.
Isaac is a great tutor for my 9th grader. He explains the lesson very well and ensures that she understands the material before he leaves. He arrives on time and is not a clock watcher, he aims for only for excellence!
My session with Isaac was extremely helpful. He was the only one on Wyzant to come through for me within this inconvenient holiday season to help me with Pre-calc. I had wasted valuable time in my semester with two other tutors just to be told they couldn't help me (even though they had pre-calc on their profile). I am so thrilled and contented with Isaac that I have decided to make him my tutor until I graduate. The pay is TOTALLY worth it. He explains subject matter in layman's terms, uses examples that are practical and easy to understand, he's very patient and doesn't demean me or make me feel like I should already know that particular material. Isaac is a tutor's tutor. I strongly recommend him. On very, very short notice (within about 3 hours), he drove 30-45 mins to tutor me without a complaint or excuse. Thanks Isaac! You're my hero!!
Excellent tutor. Delivers lesson in simple and clear explanations. At end of lesson, I am successful in understanding my lesson.
Isaac was very thorough and definitely knew the subject material. He helped me think through processes and explained concepts so that I had a much clearly understanding of the subject matter upon leaving. He also shared tips and tricks with using the software that have proven to be invaluable! I will definitely call on Isaac in the future for my tutoring needs.
Isaac has been an excellent tutor for my son! He is very focused with him and stays on task. I would highly recommend Isaac to anyone needing a focused, detailed oriented teacher!
Isaac was very accommodating and worked hard to help me. I'm sure his teaching methods work well for the majority of students. Unfortunately, I have high functioning autism, and my test scores didn't improve after his tutoring. I would highly recommend Isaac for regular students, but people with autism should probably find a tutor with specific experience in teaching students with special needs.
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.
I have 15 years of experience developing and testing applications written in procedural languages including C and C like languages. I have developed web applications, language compilers, and office automation software using C and C++.
My experience includes writing applications for Linux, Windows, and smartphones in C and Objective. I also have 5 years of experience evaluated safety critical embedded software written in C and assembly language.
My approach to teaching C is to briefly introduce students to top down programming concepts, and to follow up with teaching the syntax and semantics unique to C. I also cover debugging and testing techniques. My instruction can also cover the use of the C library and other development libraries.

As a college student I double majored in engineering and physics, and I thoroughly enjoy tutoring and discussing those subjects. I have had good success in tutoring college and high school students in mechanics, optics, and in preparing high school students for taking SAT II test in Physics.
In explaining difficult concepts in physics to new students, I make use of analogies with everyday concepts that the student is familiar with so that those concepts are understood and not merely memorized.
I can assists teacher candidates in preparing for the Praxis II exam in Mathematics. This test is required for anyone aspiring to teach high school mathematics in most states, including North Carolina.
I have taken this test and scored 194 out of a possible 200, and also received the ETS Praxis Certificate of Excellence for achieving a score in the top 15% of all test takers.
In addition to my demonstrated proficiency with the math tested on the Praxis II test, I have documented experience as a successful math tutor for Wyzant.
