About John

Having tutored or taught math and physics for over 10 years I have gained ample experience in helping students at both the high school and university levels learn to grasp these rather difficult subjects.

I earned my Bachelors in physics with a Minor Certificate in mathematics from Georgia Tech, graduating with Highest Honors. While at Tech I was involved in an on-campus tutoring program where I helped students one-on-one in a variety of math classes including calculus, pre-calculus, college algebra, differential equations, linear algebra, and probability and statistics, as well as a full range of physics courses from introductory mechanics to electricity and magnetism to quantum mechanics. In addition to tutoring I have also been involved in scientific research, with a publication in 'Physical Review E'.

I completed a Masters in physics at Cornell University where I worked as a Teaching Assistant, running discussion sections and labs. I also continued to tutor students privately throughout this time. I currently work as a data scientist, and am also pursuing a second Masters degree in data science at Columbia University.

I find it enjoyable and rewarding to teach this material, and by working through many example problems together, I believe that I am able to make these subjects comprehensible and enjoyable for many students as well.

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

I have taken both ordinary and partial differential equations in college (with grades of A) and have used these subjects in research.

Linear Algebra

I have taken multiple linear algebra classes in college and graduate school and have used this knowledge while performing research.
