About Sherman

My name is Sherman. I have a PhD in Physics from Princeton. I have taught in the Dept of Physics and Astronomy at University of Maryland, College Park, and at Fairfield University.

I now have success tutoring at the high school and college level. Students I tutor do B+ work or better. I teach all-levels math, statistics, physics, and general science.

My tutor process is as follows: We review together past homework and quizzes as they occur. We then do any remedial work indicated. Next the student does their homework with me at their side as a guide.

I teach exam taking strategies for each subject, as well.

As a result, I find many students profit by a new confidence in their abilities.

Very Patient

He is very patient with my son. He schedules times that are convenient for us all. He has made a good assessment of what my son needs and is working toward those goals. We appreciate the work that he has done and his flexibility in scheduling!
