About Al

A professor at local University may have time to teach several students to mathematical subjects, like college algebra, pre-calculus and calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, biology and physiology, biophysics and physics, business math and business statistics, etc. I have been teaching for many years at University level as well as have tutored high school students to enter the elite universities.

I am interested in communicating and teaching dedicated students, who understand the importance of knowledge as opposed to grade. Due to the nature of teaching and learning I do not think it is possible to give deep and thorough knowledge in a couple of lectures, therefore usually I am not taking students who are interested in preparation for an exam next week or month. I start from the very basics and gradually go forward making sure the student understand all necessary details and can address any problem within a subject. After couple of years of studies the student will be able to solve almost any problem from any textbook or any professor related to subject the student studied with me.
For the first meeting I require a parent (or both) to come to discuss the issues with me, outline the expectations, etc. (unless the student is a mature adult). Also, during the first meeting I will listen to the parent(s) and the student, diagnose the deficiencies (if any) and tell the parent(s) what I think is important for the student to know and what steps I propose to take.

Please write me a message if you have any questions. I am not available to talk over the phone, so the electronic/written communication is the only way to contact me. Please feel free to do so.

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.

Discrete Math

I have Msc and PhD in Mathematics and Theoretical Physics. I have taught at high school level (algebra, discrete math, pre-calculus, geometry, trigonometry, etc.) and University level (college algebra, discrete math, calculus, etc.) for more than 20 years.
