About Mark

My background is mathematical physics (PhD). I also have a strong background in mathematics. I have been tutoring mathematics and physics for the past 15 years at all levels and have worked as an adjunct professor in these subjects for the last few years.

Since every student is different, I try to “customize” my approach to meet the individual needs of the student.
I think it is important to spend a lot of the sessions working with students to help them develop strategies for solving problems.

I like to make learning math and physics fun for the students I tutor, giving them examples to which they can relate. My goal is to get them excited about studying these subjects.

I have experience tutoring all levels of math up to Calculus, and physics at both the high school and introductory college level.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Differential Equations

My background is mathematical physics, especially quantum physics. I am familiar with solving differential equations.

Linear Algebra

I have been tutoring linear algebra (and other subjects in math) for the last twelve years.

In addition I used linear algebra frequently during my graduate studies in mathematical physics. As an undergraduate with a major in math, linear algebra was a required course.

Physics

I have a PhD in Mathematical Physics. I have been tutoring for over 15 years at all levels of physics (and mathematics).
Since every student is different, I try to “customize” my approach to meet the individual needs of the student. I think it is important to spend a lot of the sessions working with students to help them develop strategies for solving problems. At the same time, if needed, we discuss the theory that is required.

Helpful AP Physics Tutoring

Thank you for working with my son. He understood the concepts and material he is learning better after working with you. He felt more confident as well. We will definitely be contacting you in future for further tutoring as he was glad you knew the course very well to help him through it.
