I'm a well educated and patient tutor for help with science, math, and English. I have worked as a post-doctoral fellow in neuroscience at Princeton, have a Ph.D. in physics from Harvard, and graduated with a B. Sc. from Columbia. I was a mathematics olympiad regional winner in high school. My background allows me to teach a broad range of subjects. My favorite part about tutoring is when I can make a substantial difference to students, helping them achieve their goals and learning enough to consider new opportunities.
After thousands of hours tutoring I've discovered that I am a very good teacher. I can reach people quickly and effectively. I like teaching and I've helped many succeed, sometimes on a volunteer basis.
My main main areas of interest are mathematics, physics, computer science and statistics for High School and College.
Mathematics: Through tutoring I have a good sense for what students should know and how to diagnose areas of weakness and strength. I've taught AB, and BC Calculus, Algebra II and Trigonometry, precalculus, and Geometry, including designing calculus courses. I've prepared students for standardized exams including the SAT math exam and math 2.
Science: I've introduced physics and chemistry to young students through both lectures and laboratory exercises. I've taught many concepts advanced concepts in a hands on and intuitive way so that students learn concepts profoundly.
Computer Science: I've taught young students programming from the ground up. I have a course of instruction designed for C++, but I also teach Java, and other languages such as MATLAB, Mathematica, and LABview.
High school: Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology, and Computer Programming and related laboratory courses.
Mathematics: algebra 1 and algebra 2, Geometry, trigonometry, precalculus and calculus. I've helped students do well on finals and for regents under some difficult circumstances.
Physics: I've taught all levels from AP levels to introductory levels. I've helped prepare students for the physics SAT and they have done very well. I've taught students with no other instructor; I've helped students prepare for physics competitions.
Chemistry: I teach chemistry focusing on fundamental concepts that draws from both my understanding of physics and atomic physics and also putting order to all the many phenomenon that chemistry can explain.
Computer Science: I've introduced programming languages and concepts to students of all abilities and age groups
College and University:
Physics: Mechanics and Classical Mechanics, Electricity and Magnetism, Physics for medical students or poets, or other physics classes and Laboratory classes;
Mathematics: Pre-Calculus, Calculus and Vector Calculus, Linear Algebra, Differential Equations;
Computer Science; Programming: Java, C++, MATLAB, Mathematica, and LaBview.
Statistics: I've taught business statistics, probability, probability distributions, biostatistics, confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, and ANOVA analsysis.
Mechanical Design: I am proficient at SolidWorks. I can introduce you to how to use the software to draw parts, assemblies in 3D or to make 2D drawings.
Please feel free to ask me if you need assistance with other related subjects.
I am also skilled at coaching for test preparation such as SAT, ACT, GRE, large parts of the MCAT, and other exams. I would focus on both learning the material and the best strategies for achieving success, given your particular situation.
I'll make good use of your time with me. These subjects can be very interesting and worthwhile studying, but often there may be a concept of two that is difficult. My goal is to get you on track, identify those stumbling blocks, and work through them. My goal is to get you comfortable and competent in the material so that the entire learning experience is rewarding in many ways. Longer term, that approach can open up many opportunities in the future, that may be hard to anticipate now.
I love teaching high school and younger students as well as college or others. For me, a big part of the reward in tutoring is making these subjects understandable and hopefully enjoyable. I'm a well educated and patient tutor for help with science, math, and English. I have worked as a post-doctoral fellow in neuroscience at Princeton, have a Ph.D. in physics from Harvard, and graduated with a B. Sc. from Columbia. I was a mathematics olympiad regional winner in high school. My background allows me to teach a broad range of

Anton is the best tutor I have ever had the pleasure of working with. His seemingly limitless knowledge of mathematics helped me get an A in an advanced statistics graduate course that I did not have much background in at all. I have since accepted a statistics position and have begun my career. Always on time and impeccably organized, Anton is worth every penny invested.
Anton is a great tutor who helped my son not just understand the concepts but also master his Actuary P exam and Advanced probability course. Through his tutoring my son did exceptionally well on the course that he was initially struggling with and at the end achieved a 4.0. He is a very caring and thoughtful tutor, and his work was thorough. He ensured that my son mastered the basic concepts that became the foundations for his advanced actuarial course. I would strongly recommend Anton for tutoring of Advanced Probability and the Actuarial P exams.
Anton is very easy to follow and able to easily answer questions. I was very happy with my tutoring session.
We engaged Anton to help our high school aged daughter to gain skills and confidence in solving AP Physics problems. His lessons were effective and her grades improved to show it. Beyond that, Anton introduced her to problem solving strategies that we believe will be generally beneficial in math and other sciences beyond Physics. I highly recommend him as a tutor.
Anton was very helpful! Needed lots of help with probability and some basic problem solving mechanics...also very helpful when it came to sentence correction for the GMAT!
Learned some info about bits which I should know already but didn't. Helped me with my IDE which I'm clueless and now I'm more knowledgeable. Learned some Java class info and organization within a class, got some basic knowledge. Time flies but I liked him and thought it was worth it!
Anton has solid knowledge base and great a transmission capacity of this knowledge to the student. It was one of the best classes that I have had.
Anton was very accommodating to his student! My child had to contact him at a time for problems that was not the regular time, and Anton was extremely helpful and flexible with his time. We really appreciate his generosity with this last minute request.
Anton is helping our son learn computer programming from the bottom up. Anton's approach is comprehensive and perfectly geared for a young, motivated learner.
I contacted Anton thru Wyzant...I have used the tutoring service before and have always been able to find excellent tutors for my kids. My son, a junior at Boston University, needed help with his calculus class and Anton has been helping him to understand the material. He has been a Godsend....my son enjoys working with him and more importantly is learning with Anton's help!
I have gone over all the complaints regarding Mr. Anton; with all due respect to the authors, they are incorrect. Before tackling things head on like how is taught by schools and the average tutor, Mr. Anton goes beyond. He really cares about the student's progress, and makes sure that basic concepts are understood beforehand. This is so that later problems are easier to tackle. While math is my weakest subject, and the one I dislike the most, Anton makes it fun and comfortable (while still being academic). He asks questions and makes sure that you understand the point 100% before moving on.
In regards to his character, Mr. Anton is polite, smart, patient, and helpful. Whether you are a parent with a student that needs tutoring, or just a student (like myself) that wants to further themselves academically, Mr. Anton is the one to contact.
Able to help with very difficult physics material and very patient with college student in tough course. Very flexible with scheduling.
Fourier series intuition, basic linear algebra, a better approach to integrals. His knowledge is vast and he is a great teacher.
Anton helped me figure out what I was missing in the fundamentals and how to get the basics. Once that was done, it was easier to figure out the more complicated problems. He helped me feel more confident and taught me now to do it.
Anton has been helping our son and his friend learn honors and CP geometry for several months now. Not only is he incredibly flexible but the kids really respect his intelligence, his patience and his thoughtfulness. I have heard the kids challenging him on an answer to a problem and somehow, amazingly, he patiently helps them to see what they have not been able to see-the error. He gets to know your child really well and then uses that knowledge to encourage the child to do well.. our son increased his grades significantly. We also believe his learning process spilled over to other subjects and we have seen them improve as well.
We recommend Anton without reservation. We do know the tutoring is expensive but we encourage you to give him a try. Not only will you save money in the long run, but your kids will love him and therefore the teaching is more effective.
Anton worked with our son, a junior at a very progressive school, when he needed to prepare for the SAT on a short schedule (3 weeks) in order to apply for a competitive summer program. Although our son has some natural talents in understanding math, he had little to no experience with standardized testing, had performed poorly on his fall PSATs and was still resistant to thinking that he could train for this test.
Anton's work focused almost entirely on preparing our son for the math section. However, our son's grades improved remarkably across the WHOLE test (690, 700 and 620). We are certain that our son's success is directly attributable to Anton's advising and teaching. Anton really helped him understand where he was strong, how to approach the test from his areas of strength and how to avoid potential mistakes that were correlated with his knowledge and learning style. Building a strategy for the test became appealing for our son. Anton was realistic with him but also did not give him mountains of extra work (despite genuine concerns that he might be ill-prepared given the short time table). Rather, Anton accepted who he was, helped him stay calm and take ownership of the work. There was a heavy focus on practice tests and understanding what it revealed about our son's approach to questions (knowledge and style and time spend on questions). Their interactions truly seemed to be one of mutual respect. We were thrilled to find a tutor who could demystify the test while also making sure that our son did not feel demeaned or insufficient. Rather, he inspired him to find what he can bring to the test and go from there. Furthermore, Anton always provided us with immediate written feedback which was essential because our son is a boarding student so we never met Anton personally.
Finally, although the worked almost exclusively on math, Anton taught him overall test taking skills and success. We are thrilled that our son was able to conquer his lack of experience and tendency for distraction such that he could perform on this test - a test that is an unfortunate gateway to many future learning opportunities in the area of engineering, science and math.
We are so pleased with Anton's work with our son in algebra II and currently trigonometry. He is highly qualified, patient and does not just teach to the problem but identifies and remediates areas of individual challenge for his student. He encourages individual problem solving as well as an understanding of all concepts and concise methods to approach problems. Anton continually gives positive feedback to our son when he achieves results. Best tutor we have had in math - feel very confidant that Anton can help our son through this difficult course and achieve success.
Anton continued with our son this year through calculus and physics. His command of his subject and ability to convey the concepts is evidenced in my son's receiving an A on both of his midterm exams. He is patient, quickly identifies areas of weakness and does a thorough explanation of the problem and then has the student demonstrate his understanding with new problems. He gives great positive reinforcement and make the student feel more confident. It is with great enthusiasm that we give him a 5-Star rating as a tutor!!
Beware!!! Anton told me my daughter was doing great, rarely made mistakes, and should get a great grade on the math portion of the SATs, so I continued to purchase more hours of tutoring. We just got the results and her results actually went DOWN. His only response was to buy more lessons and he would work on strategy. Shouldn't strategy have already been covered during the $1000 worth of tutoring? Don't waste your child's time or your money.
Too bad you feel that way because your daughter was on her way to a significantly improved score. It is worthwhile to try to improve, but an improvement depends on many factors including how much time is allotted and how much effort is exerted.
This score occurred after a month of weekly lessons, and I never assured anyone that would be enough time to yield a significantly improved score. According to the College Board, it is unlikely for some students to improve their SAT math score. For example, 72% of seniors who retake the SAT and who as juniors scored in the range of 630 points to 670 points in math obtain scores that changed by less than 40 points compared with their junior scores. For that group, any score change of less than 40 points is NOT SIGNIFICANT, A FLUCTUATION, and within the MARGIN OF ERROR. Some students in that group still improve, but beating the odds requires dedication. In this case, your daughter did not expect a big improvement because immediately post-test, she decided to retake it. Our strategy was effective and established and included PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE. Prior to this SAT trial, I administered nearly 4 hours of timed official SAT math test sections to her, over 180 SAT math questions, and taught her how to answer each question optimally.
There were significant improvements in timing, confidence and accuracy. You wrote that "for the first time she [your daughter] didn't run out of time on the math section…”, and that I have “been a big help with her confidence.” Furthermore, your daughter’s accuracy was improving: in one timed official SAT math section I administered, she attained a near perfect score.
I used your daughter’s time well and I helped her.
Anton is a friendly tutor with a strong knowledge base and clever intuition into mathematical concepts. I think he would be a good tutor for many students, but my one 3-hour session with him did not quite meet my expectations nor seem to justify the price. I leave this mixed review in the spirit of continuous improvement.
Anton and I worked on some statistics. In my introductory emails and at the beginning of our session, I expressed that I felt comfortable with much of the material but wanted to focus on some of my textbook's more complex exercises and then move on to some proofs. As we flipped through the textbook in search of good problems to tackle, Anton tended to stop at the beginning of each chapter, read out loud the definitions of key concepts, and diagram the concepts on paper. "I'm comfortable with this concept," I found myself repeating. The problem is not that Anton was bad at explaining these concepts, he was quite good, but he didn't seem to pay close attention to whether I needed to spend time on a particular area or not. At more than one point, I explained a concept and then he explained the same concept to me as if he hadn't registered that I fully understood it. I pressed us to move forward to the hard exercises, and at multiple points he insisted we do one more of the basic examples before moving on. It seems that good tutoring should involve paying close attention to the material AND close attention to the student; I felt like Anton was only doing the former.
At times, I got the sense that Anton wanted to focus on each chapter's introductory content to make sure that he was fully up to speed before moving to the hardest exercises. I understand this; it's natural given that he probably tutors different content every day. But it seems to me that, given the significant tutoring fee, time should only be spent on what the student needs, not what the tutor needs. My assumption based on Anton's stellar background, rave reviews, and high cost was that he would immediately be ready for whatever material we might jump to.
Once we made it to a section where I had been previously confused (joint density functions where the bounds of one variable are conditional on the other), Anton was very helpful. We only made it to this point because I insisted we jump ahead; we never made it to the proofs I had hoped to cover. In retrospect, I should have had a more specific game-plan about exactly which sections to tackle. I do wish Anton had been more proactive about time management, as well.
Next time, I intend to be much more deliberate about focusing the tutor's time on the highest priority areas, and more assertive if I think we're dawdling. In turn, I hope Anton will pay closer attention to the comfort level and preferred pacing that his students vocalize.
If one can’t complete the complex problems, it is often that the fundamentals are not mastered. One of my obligations as a tutor is to make sure that the fundamentals are understood, so that the student can apply that knowledge to more complex and difficult problems in the future. Mastering fundamentals is a key to success in science and math, because fundamentals and advanced topics go hand in hand. Humility and patience are essential virtues for both scientists and mathematicians.
Students and parents have consistently appreciated my work because I diagnose where students miss concepts. Once the basics are solid, my students learn at an accelerated pace, and the results speak for themselves. Many of my students have been with me for over a year, have learned entire courses just from me, and have returned to me to study several other subjects. They remain in contact. My students have learned the concepts fundamentally, have earned high marks on their papers and assignments, have obtained high grades and test scores, and some have landed great jobs.
Jeff, you asked for a review so as per your request we skipped chapters 1,2, and 4, did 6 sections and 12 problems in chapter 3, and reviewed some then completed one difficult problem in chapter 5. We used your time well. You are a very bright and talented student and I wish you all the best for your future.
When my son needed last-minute help preparing for his AP Calculus exam, Anton came to the rescue with subject expertise, patience, punctuality, and warmth. We could not have found anyone better!
Anton also tutored my son for his Calculus (BC) final exam. He made sure my son was very well prepared. Anton was able to assess exactly what areas needed work on and then to provide clear explanations and sample problems. Highly recommended!
Anton tutored my son for Honors Calculus and did an excellent job. Anton was pleasant to work with, made a nice connection with my son and was very flexible with scheduling. Most importantly, with Anton's help, my son had a very successful year earning an A- for the class. I highly recommend Anton to anyone looking for math tutoring!
My son was in AP Calculus BC. This was not his favorite class, but I found that having Anton tutor him helped by encouraging a good study discipline. The sessions were particularly helpful in preparing for exams, especially if we were able to provide Anton with the test subjects ahead of time. In addition, Anton was very flexible in accommodating my son's hectic senior schedule. I would certainly recommend Anton for other calculus students.
Anton tutored my daughter in college level Physics for nearly 2 months. Each session was for 2 hours. My daughter is shy and Anton was very patient and explained the topics very thoroughly. My daughter did well on her exams and homework assignments as a result of the tutoring. He was very reliable and I highly recommend him as a tutor.
We worked together through the entire calculus syllabus. We covered all topics in depth, often solving the most complex problems. Anton lectures were very helpful and were often conducted remotely using Skype. Using Skype was incredibly successful. Anton also taught me to become proficient in programming the TI-nspire cx CAS and use of wolfram alpha.
Anton is reliable and trustworthy. He was always a great pleasure to work with. We would often work together late into the night on Skype and I was always fully engaged by Anton's lectures and proofs. Anton did a great job in explaining the material I wanted to cover. He's a great teacher and always responds to my emails within very short time (most times within 1-2 hours).
From start to finish, Anton has been great. We were in a state of panic over the difficulties my son had with calculus and needed immediate help. Anton was available the very week that we contacted him. We wanted to work with him in particular because of all of the other great reviews that had been posted. Not only has my son moved beyond his difficulties, he has gained a confidence in math that he didn't have before. Anton did a great job of finding basic weaknesses and mistakes from bad habits or processes. After he worked with my son on these issues, his math markedly improved.
In addition to calculus work, Anton worked on math SAT problems and we again found noticeable improvements.
Anton also has a very patient and kind personality so that my son never felt frustrated or stressed.
I highly recommend Anton and will work with him again, if we need a math tutor in the future.
Anton is a nice, punctual, prepared, and extremely intelligent person. He is flexible with schedule changes. He can explain very complex ideas in a simple manner. He does not assign homework so you can work at your own pace. I would recommend him for motivated hardworking students who need help understanding complicated concepts.
Anton is working well with both my sons, which is not always an easy task. They like him and actually enjoy their SAT review sessions. Anton is professional and tries hard to accommodate their difficult schedules. I highly recommend him.
1/31/14: Anton and my sons continue to do well together. We are very happy with our choice of a tutor! Everything is great... he is kind, professional, easy to work with and my sons (even when exhausted from wrestling!) still enjoy tutoring. We are very happy.
I am currently studying computer science at Tufts University and enlisted Anton's help for one of my courses. Anton's diverse experience in computer programming, together with good teaching nous allowed him to make difficult principles understandable, and facilitate my improvement in more familiar areas. I would highly recommend Anton to anyone!
Anton is patient, thorough and easy to work with. He also goes out of his way to make himself available when needed.
Mr. Anton K is a great tutor with strong sense of responsibility and extreme patience. He teaches in a very creative way which activates great interest of my 9-year-old daughter. C++ is very difficult to learn and to teach. He succeeds to let my daughter understand complicated concepts easily and really enjoy programming herself. We are so lucky to find such a good tutor.
I was looking for a science buff who could not only provide incredible knowledge; but satisfy my 7 year old son's love for physics and chemistry in a youthful and playful manner that was appropriate on his level. Luckily, I found that in Anton! My son enjoyed working with him! He provided information on magnetism, electricity, power, conductors, atoms,and much much more! If you have a child with a hunger for science, and want a warm, gentle man with lots of experience, Anton is your guy!!!!!
It is hard to find a tutor who knows the material well, can work at the student's level and really cares. Anton has this amazing combination. He is also incredibly smart and detailed. He makes sure that you understand each concept and works each problem thoroughly with diagrams and illustrations. He also derives all the important formulas which helps memory and understanding.
I am really pleased at my good fortune to have gotten such an outstanding tutor.
I highly recommend Anton to anyone who wants to master Physics. You will be studying with an EXPERT!
I am entering a MBA program and needed some help with a pre-MBA test covering math topics such as calculus, statistics, etc. The only problem is I have little to no familiarity with these topics! In only a few short hours, Anton was able to walk me through step by step and clearly articulate not just the technical knowledge, but the concepts behind the numbers.
Aside from his clear handle on the subject matter and ability to explain concepts well, Anton was also very friendly and professional, and I would definitely recommend him to anyone.
Thanks for everything Anton.
Anton is very patient and did a great job connecting with my son. He is knowledgeable and allowed my son to learn by asking questions and explaining as he did the work. I highly recommend him.
It was a pleasure working with Anton. He is truly amazing. He motivated my otherwise unmotivated son. He is, no doubt, very knowledgeable, very dedicated, very dependable, and much focused on the goal. He invests himself in the outcome for the student and is passionate about what he is doing, which doesn't surprise me considering his qualifications and background. He built on my son's strengths and very quickly identified his weaknesses and areas which required more attention. He had an uncanny ability to engage my son in a learning process so much so that my son actually enjoyed it which in turn allowed more gains from the meetings with Anton. Two meetings were enough for my son to regain confidence in his own abilities and within a relatively short period of time my son made up for what he had lost since the beginning of the school year. Thanks to Anton's great personality and intuition he established very good rapport with my son early on. As a parent I felt very confident to leave my son in his hands. He is very professional. I highly, highly recommend him.
At the time of mid-term exams not only was I not passing business statistics, my grade was very, very low... I would have to make extremely good grades for the balance of the semester just to pass. I thought there was absolutely no way. Because of Anton's tutoring sessions, I not only passed I ended up with an acceptable grade. Anton worked with me to help me understand all the concepts; I had multiple tests coming up and the final was cumulative. Without Anton's help there is NO WAY I would have even passed the course let alone make a decent grade.
Thanks Anton for your help. Your patience and dedication to pass the concepts the way they should be is highly appreciated. Your approach guarantees success on solid ground!
Anton turned out to be by far an excellent Matlab tutor! He took his time and made sure I understood each step before we proceeded to the next step. He is very knowledgeable about Matlab. I would recommend him highly to anyone wanting to learn anything about Matlab!
Anton was right on time. He was patient, knowledgeable, lovely supportive. I would recommend to any high school senior or below for physics help.
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 have a PhD in physics. I've tutored with much success to high school students in all sorts of math. Algebra, Trigonometry, Geometry, precalculus, and calculus. In some cases, I've worked under difficult circumstances. Either because of time pressure, or otherwise, where we had a lot of material to cover quickly. My students have done well, especially those that I worked with over several sessions.
My goal is to make the subject clear so that you learn it. If you learn it well, it will serve you well for a long time to come. It is a crucial skill to have, and I'd make sure you do have it.
I studied Arabic intensively and know the language well. After taking several courses as an undergraduate, and having taken an intensive Arabic summer course in Middlebury College, I was accepted at the Center for Arabic Studies Abroad in Cairo, Egypt. There I participated in a year long course learning Arabic at a professional level. I passed a Foreign Service Fluency Exam in Arabic with a score of 3.7/5, meaning that I achieved a Professional level of fluency. I lived in the Middle East for well over a year between Cairo and the West Bank.
Now I speak with my two young children in Arabic predominantly.
You can see from my profile that I tutor in statistics frequently. I have had many statistics students and some have written excellent testimonials on my behalf. I also am approved in biology. I have done a post-doctoral fellowship in neuroscience so I know biology. Biostatistics is basically statistics applied to biology. This is well within my area of expertise.
C programming is essential for many languages. C has many similarities to C++ but in C, there are different preferred methods. C has many current applications, for example operating systems and device drivers.
I tutor in C/C++ on a weekly basis and have done so for 6 months or so. I make sure that the main ideas of the program at hand are understood first. I make sure the syntax is also clear, so the results can be applied.
First, I have a Ph.D. in Experimental Atomic Physics from Harvard. I've programmed for about 25 years. I am certified in MATLAB and in Programming because I've completed large data analysis and instrument control projects in various languages, such as C++, MATLAB, LABVIEW, Pascal and Mathematica.
I've learned C++ through B. Stroustrup's book the C++ programming language. That book is the reference for professionals who work with C++. I also learned through other books such as Scott Meyers, Effective C++ and Barton and Nackman's book. I've written thousands of lines of C++ for various applications. I am using C++ to design a complex platform for a commercial medical device.
C++ popularized the important concepts of Object oriented programming, generic programming and inheritance. I know how these concepts are implemented in C++ and also in Java. I know how to program using C++'s native structures. This is important for writing efficient and easily comprehensible code.
I've mastered C++. C++ can be viewed as a federation of languages, such as C, the Standard Template Library, Object Oriented Programming and inheritance structures, and Generic Programming structures. I know all these subjects and I know how to write efficient code.
I also have studied algorithms. For solving problems in C++ this is critical for it allows one to solve problems in the simplest way, by writing proven structures, or using existing ones. It allows one to solve problems one could not have otherwise.
As a Tutor, I bring a love of the C++ language and patience. I can play a critical role in programming for I can quickly spot why some software doesn't work. I will make sure that my students master and perhaps love the material.
I have a solid understanding of calculus gained through earning a PhD in physics and from learning mathematics in a profound way. I was always interested in mathematics and in high school and was a mathematics olympiad regional winner. Physics and computer science both requires a deep command of mathematics, and so since then my knowledge and abilities have continually grown.
I'd make sure the concepts are understood. They come up naturally in problems, and we'd go through them at the appropriate level of detail. I'd also make sure you can apply them to problems.
I've been well rated as a calculus tutor. I'm also well rated as a tutor in general because I take tutoring seriously.
I have a Ph.D. in experimental atomic physics and I have been programming for 30 years. I know Java, C++, MATLAB, and some older less used languages such as Pascal and Mathematica.
I've written over 500 routines for graphing and data analysis in MATLAB. I have written hundreds of lines of code in Java and C++. I know how to write and to debug in object oriented languages.
I have a PhD in physics, and spent much of my career writing software primarily for data analysis, data visualization, for control and interfaces to instruments, and teaching. I have taught MATLAB, Mathematica, C++, C, Java, SPSS, computer programming, and 2D computer graphics. I am also well versed in algorithms and that is often the focus of my teaching. Above and beyond the language, I like to teach programming principles and practice. I've had many students in C++, Java, and in MATLAB and often they return for other work.
I have a PhD in physics and I tutor extensively in math including calculus, and linear algebra. I studied differential equations in college and graduate school. At Columbia University I was a teacher's assistant in differential equations. I helped teach this course at least two times, so I got to be very good at teaching it. Now I also could teach differential equations.
I have a PhD in physics and a B. Sc. in applied physics. While in graduate school and as a postdoctoral fellow, I built and designed perhaps 100s of components using both digital and analog electronics. That design experience gives me insight that would be difficult (if not impossible) to learn from books.
I've also taught computer science for hundreds of hours and that experience also gives me a knowledge of how to reach both computer science and electrical engineering students.
First I would say that I've taught many, many hours of elementary school education. I now have two eighth graders that I tutor to and I received high marks for that. You can see testimonials from two children, one in second grade and another in fourth grade. Another fourth grader in math continually asked me when I would come back to New York to help tutor him. I also know the elementary school curriculum. I've tutored in math, science and English.
I have tutored math to elementary school students. I have a good sense for the curriculum, and I have a good sense for what concepts are easy and what concepts are difficult for some students.
I've tutored in Geometry frequently, often where we reviewed the entire subject. I am adept at teaching proofs, triangle properties, parallelogram properties, and those of circles. I also can integrate these properties to help foster a deep understanding and appreciation for Geometry.
I've taught all the math subjects that are included within the GMAT, including algebra, geometry, and word problems. I've taught statistics and business statistics with good results as you can see below. I have used quantitative reasoning in writing research papers and in analyzing data to determine what conclusions are justified.
I've taught Java to several students in high school and college. I've taught fundamentals of the language, inheritance, and key algorithms such as stacks, queues, sorting, symbol tables and graphs.
I have a Ph.D. in physics and linear algebra is used all the time for daily work. I've used it to solve all sorts of numerical problems.
I've been tutoring in linear algebra and recently helped a student at Columbia learn this subject. As a tutor, I've taught math topics such as differential equations, algebra, calculus, vector calculus, precalculus, trigonometry, probability, and statistics.
I've had some excellent results with my tutoring. In some cases my students have turned around some tough situations. I played a role in that by making concepts understandable and by addressing their needs directly and quickly.
I've programmed extensively in Mathematica. I used it to analyze my thesis Data for my Ph.D. in physics.
I've also programmed extensively and know many different computer languages, so I can put this language in context.
I've used MATLAB to analyze data for my research in neuroscience for about 10 years and for three years at least a large fraction of my day was spent writing MATLAB code. I've written more than 500 data analysis and software routines in MATLAB and I know all the commands and how best to organize software.
In addition, I know how to design software gained through studying programming and by writing long applications.
I have a PhD in physics and I worked as a post-doctoral fellow in neuroscience. This has trained me in most of the sections in the exam.
The exam is divided into several parts. One section is the Physical Sciences, essentially physics and chemistry. The topics in that section include force, energy, momentum, electricity and magnetism, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, electric circuits in the physics section, and electronic structure, the periodic table, thermochemistry, acid-base reactions, the structure of molecules, , electrochemistry in the chemistry section. I cover all these subjects through my approval in physics and chemistry.
Another section of the test is analytic reasoning and deciding what conclusions one can draw from medical data. I tutor in statistics and know how to infer conclusions based on the data. I've written scientific papers where I've applied that knowledge as well. That section, where one assesses the strengths of ones data and infers conclusions is also something I tutor in regularly.
The remaining main section is the biological sciences, and large sections of this I also could cover. I cover the properties of nerve cells and neuroanatomy. I did a postdoctoral fellowship in neuroscience, where that knowledge was crucial in order to do research.
For MCAT tutoring, students generally specify which subjects they want tutoring in. I would apply to those positions where my strengths are needed.
I've studied photography for 10 years. I've submitted photographs for competitions as well. I know all the mechanics of photography, setting light, exposure, speed, lenses and setting the aperture. I also have developed a sense for how to shoot. What angles work in photography and how to capture the moment. I would be able to tutor in basic as well as advanced topics in photography, both indoor and outside.
I have a PhD in experimental physics (Harvard). I have several students that I tutor in physics in high school, and elementary school, and I have also tutored and taught students in college and graduate school.
I've taught programming for hundreds of hours for all related languages such as C++, C, and Java. I also have taught Python now for some 50 hours. Python is a simpler language than the others, yet it shares nearly all of the same the concepts and an only slightly modified syntax. I am very good at teaching programming principles. Most of the code that I have helped students write works with few if any programming bugs. I am very good at teaching programming principles to students learning Python.
I tutor in elementary mathematics and science to several students in high school currently. These subjects have included physics, mathematics and chemistry.
My tutoring experience has taught me what questions are asked on the Regents and what difficulties students have. I also have studied for the Regents myself, so I have a sense for the questions.
I have a PhD in physics, have worked as a post-doc in Biology and was a mathematics olympiad regional winner in high school. In addition, I tutor and have tutored in mathematics from elementary school to high school and throughout college. I have a good command of the material, even well beyond the regents themselves.
SAT math is composed of algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and precalculus. I've tutored repeatedly in all of these subjects individually and I've received very good reviews and testimonials for that work. I've also tutored for SAT math as a subject where not only are these subjects tested, but also under test is your speed and your choice of questions.
I have a PhD in physics and was a mathematics olympiad winner in high school. I've always been extremely good at math.
I learned statistics through my PhD thesis in experimental physics to infer the accuracy of my measurement. I also used it to write papers for neuroscience. I have regular students that I tutor in statistics, probability and business statistics.
