About Marcus


Bio

My name is Marcus S. I am a highly experienced tutor with a total of close to 9 years of experience and with two bachelor of science degrees in Physics and Mathematics from Drexel University. I am available to tutor students of all ages in a wide variety of subjects related to the pure sciences. I graduated first in my class in high school and first in my Physics class at Drexel.

My name is Marcus S. I am a highly experienced tutor with a total of close to 9 years of experience and with two bachelor of science degrees in Physics and Mathematics from Drexel University. I am available to tutor students of all ages in a wide variety of subjects related to the pure sciences. I graduated first in my class in high school and first in my Physics class at Drexel. In addition to this, I graduated from community college before I graduated from high school with a 4.0 GPA and have received many awards throughout college and high school for my academic excellence in Physics, Mathematics, and the German language. At Drexel, I graduated Summa Cum Laude in both of my majors. I have also won major awards in Physics and Mathematics, such as the Deviben Patel awards for the highest science average and highest mathematics average in high school, the Walter R. Coley award for outstanding academic excellence in physics at Drexel, and the Robert J. Bickel Endowed Scholarship for outstanding academic merit in mathematics at Drexel. Because I completed my associate's degree while I was in high school, I have been able to take more advanced classes at Drexel, such as graduate or senior level mathematics and physics classes.

I have an enormous amount of successful experience with informal and formal tutoring in a large range of subjects. My most effective tutoring strategy is to find each student's weak points and build upon them using association techniques which allow the student to understand the material most effectively. Practice and positive reinforcement are also essential. My favorite aspect of tutoring is student understanding and effective gaining and application of useful knowledge.

Above all, I have an unparalleled passion for the study of mathematics! I am very proficient in algebra, linear algebra, calculus (integral and differential), multivariate calculus, vector calculus, differential geometry, geometry, trigonometry, differential equations, complex variables, discrete mathematics, logic, and numerical analysis.

Any student who needs help in Mathematics or Physics is welcome to contact me any time of the day! I live in the Columbus (Burlington County), NJ area. I am also available to work in a large region surrounding the Philadelphia area.

Math

Differential Equations,

Differential Equations

I have taken Differential Equations I and II at my school and received an A+ and an A-, respectively. I am currently taking a class in Partial Differential equations. I have also taken many classes in which ODEs and PDEs are the main focus, such as quantum mechanics, electrodynamics, classical mechanics, and nonlinear dynamics. Furthermore, I have taken other math classes in which some advanced ODE methods are discussed (linear algebra II, numerical analysis). I am very proficient with first order, second order, and higher order (linear) ODEs and PDEs, the Euler method, separable equations, separation of variables, Laplace transforms, Fourier transforms, series solutions, systems of ODEs, and nonlinear analysis methods in ODEs.
Discrete Math,

Discrete Math

I have taken a course in Discrete Mathematics and received an A in the course. I have also taken Probability and Statistics I and II, Abstract Algebra I and II, and two courses in computer science, the methods and concepts of which are very applicable to the broad field of discrete mathematics (like combinatorics, number theory, set theory, elementary cryptography, logic, and geometry). I am confident that I am able to tutor elementary discrete mathematics.

Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

I have taken both Linear Algebra I and II at my school and received an A+ and an A-, respectively. I have also taken courses in which linear algebra methods are often applied, such as nonlinear dynamics, vector calculus, quantum mechanics, and classical mechanics. I am proficient in working with Gauss's method, vector space geometry, reduced and canonical forms, linear independence, basis algebra, linear mappings, matrix operations, change of basis, projections, determinants, systems of ODEs, and matrices over various fields (real numbers, complex numbers, modular fields, etc.).
Logic,

Logic

I have taken courses in Predicate and Propositional Logic and received A's in both. I have also taken mathematics and computer science classes in which principles of logic are both learned and reinforced (such as computer science I, introductory mathematical reasoning, differential geometry, abstract algebra I and II, and discrete mathematics). I am proficient with sentential connectives, truth tables, tautologies, equivalence principles, rules of inference, indirect proofs, quantifiers, bound and free variables, elementary set theory, and direct and formal proofs.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Very good explaining pre calc theory. I understood everything we reviewed and will schedule additional lessons before leaving for college. He is a very good tutor.

BRANDEN, 2 lessons with Marcus

Nice and easy to work with

He helped me through circuits along with Coulumb's law and Gauss' Law. He also answered any questions that I had and worked with me through problems I was having.

Miles, 2 lessons with Marcus

Great To Work With

Marcus was great. He responded quickly and was on time. He helped my daughter in physics and she would like to use him again throughout the year.

Gus, 1 lesson with Marcus

Wow!

My daughter needed some help getting started with a new subject. She also needed some confidence that she was on the right track. Marcus was able to provide both very quickly. I will definitely call him again if she gets hung up on anything else!
