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 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 19 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.

Made Precalculus understandable

Tony was extremely helpful and patient. He explained all of the functions thoroughly. If you are needing assistance with higher math, schedule a session. You will be glad you did.

Tony is Amazing and Makes Mastering Physics Easy!

Tony is tutoring me in physics - today was Sound Intensity and Distance, and the Threshold of Hearing and the Decibel Scale. He is more than extremely knowlegeable, he is an amazing educator! He teaches every concept in a way that I completely understand the material in its entirety! Thank you Tony!!

Jamie, 29 lessons with Tony

Very knowledgeable and patient!

Tony taught me about the differences of two squares, factoring and solving quadratic equation. Tony was very patient with me and helped me understand the rules for the problems. I look forward to working with Tony again. He's a great tutor.

Tony is very knowledgeable , patient and helpful tutor.

Tony's Knowleadgeable In Algebra and Science is really strong and he has good technique with explaining the content in a way people will understand. He also makes you feel really at ease and I'm not afraid to say if I don't get anything. if their is anything I didn't understand Tony will use diagrams and images to help me. I feel more confident about my knowledge . BIG THANK YOU !!

Great!

Very helpful and was able to explain the material in a way that could be understood. He went over my lab report and helped check my calculations. I will definitely schedule more lessons. Highly recommended.

Nichelle, 8 lessons with Tony

He Is Great!

He clarified all the concepts that I needed to know for the unit, and gave the confidence I need to proceed onwards.

Anna, 1 lesson with Tony

Tony is fantastic!

My son initially was apprehensive about getting help with AP Algebra as he had a test coming up the following day. Tony knew exactly how to approach the material. My son said that he felt 100% better about the material! He asked if he could also write a review and give Tony 10 stars!!! This is our first time using the tutoring services. What a great experience. We will be calling on Tony!
