“**Great tutor**”

A physicist by training, I completed my master's of physics specializing in biological and condensed matter physics before undertaking research in the life sciences, spanning the fields of materials science, biochemistry and engineering science. I have since taught mathematics at high school and tutored mathematics and physics from high school to

Richard was very patient and his explanation of concepts was detailed and extremely helpful. I enjoyed working with Richard and look forward to working with him again. He is very knowledgeable.

Have had a couple lessons with Richard. He's been a great instructor and helped me with laws of sines and cosines as well as a couple other trig areas.

Richard helped me in Calculus. He does a very good job of explaining how to solve my calculus problems and is willing to go over older concepts to help me.

Thank you Richard. My daughter came out of her session much more confident and ready to tackle her pre-calculus class. She said you explained things very clearly.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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 studied calculus both at high school and university. As a PhD candidate in Engineering, I taught calculus to PhD students from biology and biochemistry backgrounds.

I have extensive experience in solving differential equations. Many simple problems in physics can be modeled as a simple harmonic oscillator which can be itself modeled as a second order linear differential equation. Furthermore, all solvable undergraduate problems in quantum mechanics start with the solution to a partial differential equation. I have tutored undergraduate physicists in vector calculus for electromagnetism which involved solving partial differential equations.

I sat a first year paper on "differential equations, waves and optics" at the University of Oxford which covered both ordinary and partial differential equations. I also studied functionals, Lagrangian mechanics and quantum mechanics during my degree course.

I have taught high school geometry.

I have a Masters degree in physics from the University of Oxford and have tutored on the subject at the high school and college levels.

I taught precalculus to high school students for two years. I have also tutored extensively in the areas.

I have tutored and taught students in SAT Math.

I was a competitive athlete for 9 years before coaching in the UK for 2 years at the University of Oxford. I attained the UKA Coaching Assistant Award in March 2012 and attended the coaching education days for the UKA Athletics Coach Qualification which covered practical and theoretical aspects of coaching all events (except Hammer, Triple Jump and Pole Vault).

I have advised and coached athletes at all levels, including multiple international male and female athletes and complete beginners.
