About Tony


Bio

I have hundreds of hours of experience tutoring Physics and Math (Algebra, Trigonometry, Geometry, Precalculus, Calculus) at both the high school and college level. I explain things in down-to-earth ways that really help students understand the concepts they are learning.

I like to use real-world examples from interests of mine, including music, astronomy, and others, along with experiences I've had during my career as a Submarine Officer in the US Navy, to really help students solidify...

I have hundreds of hours of experience tutoring Physics and Math (Algebra, Trigonometry, Geometry, Precalculus, Calculus) at both the high school and college level. I explain things in down-to-earth ways that really help students understand the concepts they are learning.

I like to use real-world examples from interests of mine, including music, astronomy, and others, along with experiences I've had during my career as a Submarine Officer in the US Navy, to really help students solidify their understanding of the material being studied. Learning is better (and more interesting) when you can link a concept or an equation to something in real life.

I graduated from South Dakota State University with a B.S. in Physics and a B.S. in Electrical Engineering (GPA 3.91). I also have a Master's Degree in Engineering Management from Old Dominion University (GPA 4.0).

As mentioned, I am an active duty Submarine Officer in the US Navy, working at US Strategic Command on Offutt AFB near Omaha, NE. I have been working in the nuclear power field for most of the last 20 years. During my career, I have taught people from all walks of life many math and science concepts. Much of my career has involved helping high school and college graduates learn the difficult aspects of nuclear power, along with the math, physics, and chemistry that goes along with those concepts.

I have learned a number of techniques to effectively convey difficult ideas and help students truly understand the underlying concepts - not just solve the specific problem at hand. I also have developed proven techniques for ensuring material is retained. I use these techniques to ensure you are better prepared overall, whether for test preparation, application, or learning more advanced topics.

Physics, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, Finite Math, Precalculus, Calculus, Astronomy

I am happy to answer any questions you have!

Great first session

Tony challenged my daughter to express her knowledge instead of passively saying understood. He was great with making her demonstrate her skills with a great manner. We booked again!

Knowledgeable, patient and very intelligent

Tony was my first tutor on Wyzant and he helped me greatly with my math physics. He is patient, very bright, and was available whenever I needed his help. I highly recommend Tony.

Incredible guy!

Tony was really helpful with a subject that had me in tears! My legal minded brain could not grasp Astronomy but thanks to Tony and the way he explained things, I was able to pass the class with a B! We didn’t start tutoring until 1/2 way through the semester and brought my grade from a low D to a high B! I am very pleased and incredibly thankful for him! He was very patient and flexible with my crazy schedule!! 10/10 recommend if you’re struggling and need some 1:1 help!! Thanks Tony!!
