Math and Science Tutor with 7 Years Experience and Physics M.S.

Eli C.
I received an MS in physics from New York University in 2018 after received a dual-major BA in math and physics from NYU in 2017. This spring I completed a JD program at George Washington University Law School. I have tutored in both a freelance and salaried capacity for close to 7 years now, providing one-on-one lessons to college, high-school, and middle-school students in a wide range of subjects (mostly math, physics, and SAT prep), developing intuition and technique for instructing...

Spanish,
#### Spanish

I studied Spanish for seven years, reaching and completing AP Spanish last year. I scored a passing grade on the AP exam, demonstrating exceeding proficiency in writing, listening, speaking, and reading comprehension. I also have studied Latin to the level of a rising college junior, which furnishes me with invaluable insight into all romance languages, especially Spanish.

SAT Reading,
#### SAT Reading

After taking an SAT class and copious practices exams, I thoroughly cracked the counter-intuitive wall preventing me from scoring what I wanted on the SAT reading section (on my actual exam I scored an 800 in reading). What was so frustrating was how confusing and illogical the questions seemed but eventually I ascertained the tricks and schemes everyone should be familiar with for approaching this section of the exam; and I certainly can pass this intuition along to students who are struggling. I remember the cynicism I developed in preparation for the exam and the dwindling self confidence, so I can surely empathize with students enduring similar dilemmas and, in so doing, can develop capable methods of overcoming the seemingly insurmountable mental barriers.

SAT Writing,
#### SAT Writing

I took an SAT prep class when I was studying for my exam and it taught me invaluable techniques and methods for approaching every section of the test, specifically in writing. However, I have always been a bit of a savant, having MLA grammar and style rules as well as copious vocabulary drilled into my brain from a young age by my literature PhD mother. In fact, I didn't miss a single writing question when I took the SAT. Beyond the SAT, editing is one of my favorite activities because it allows me to expel my pedantic writing knowledge and this helped me substantially when correcting grammar on the test.

Classics,
#### Classics

I am currently pursuing a Classics major at New York University where, this past spring semester, I completed Intermediate Latin 2: Virgil. I also scored a gold medal (perfect score) on the National Latin Exam, level 3 and a bronze medal for level 4 in high school, both of which assess knowledge in classical mythology as well as simply Latin acuity. I have read translations of Greek classics and, beginning in the fall semester, plan to begin learning ancient Greek as a language.

Philosophy,
#### Philosophy

Until the end of this past school year philosophy was on the short list for desired majors of mine. In the fall semester of 2013, I enrolled in a Philosophy class in the field of logic as well as a seminar on Dostoyevsky and Modernism, a class in which my professor strongly emphasized that the latter would feature just as prominently as the former, if not more so. We therefore covered most western philosophy essentially spanning from the New Testament to neo-Realism and materialism (late 19th century). I wrote an extensive research paper for this class that required copious understanding of various philosophies and, every week, wrote a 500-word response to some sort of scholarly text. In high school, I studied to great lengths existentialism (mainly Sartre) as well as other ideologies such as transcendentalism and romanticism.

Algebra 1,
#### Algebra 1

I am a rising junior currently pursuing a math major at NYU. As of this past semester I have completed calc 3, linear algebra, analysis I and II, complex variable analysis, as a well as a mathematical applications in physics course, all of which required extensive understanding of basic math concepts like algebra and trigonometry. By now I can say I have algebra down as second-nature and can easily and quickly provide thorough walkthroughs and explanations of any concept. In fact, as I have spent most of my time tutoring students for the SAT/ACT exams, I really doubt there is an algebraic question I have not seen before.

Algebra 2,
#### Algebra 2

As of this past semester I have completed the courses: calc 3, linear algebra, analysis I and II, complex variable analysis, and mathematical applications in physics, all of which required thorough and complete understanding of more basic subjects such as algebra, trigonometry, and single-variable calculus so I have ascertained these concepts essentially to second-nature capability.

Calculus,
#### Calculus

I completed calc 3 this past semester at NYU (receiving a 91% on the final, though still awaiting my final course grade), and it was by far my favorite class of the year. I scored a 5 on the AP BC calculus exam (covering calc 1 and 2) so my calculus basis is solid (I also scored 5s on both AP Physics C exams, for which the "C" stands for calculus). Because I took the class so recently, all of its concepts are still freshly teeming in my mind. I also prepared for my final by teaching all of the concepts to my fallen-behind friend so I have experience verbalizing and elucidating the particularly confusing concepts.

Chemistry,
#### Chemistry

I took three years of chemistry in high school (honors, AP, and organic) and now study physics (of which chemistry is essentially a subset) so my background is sufficient to help up to AP or 101 level. In fact, I have experience with two students so far in tutoring chemistry specifically. Thus, whether the issue arises with conceptual topics or with the math behind them, I can provide the necessary help.

Physics,
#### Physics

Since I was introduced to physics three years ago it has been unequivocally my favorite subject. Math has always been my strongest subject and physics is simply math applied to the real world, offering a tangible significance. It is this tangibility that I think is so interesting and important about physics. Though, at times, counter-intuitive, any topic in physics can easily be rendered through diagrams and other examples and the process of problem solving can be ascertained through scrupulous practice. I am currently enrolled in physics 3 for next semester and, in high school, scored 5s on both AP Physics C exams. I also scored a 5 in AP BC Calculus and took calc 3 last semester (which is essentially math for physics) so my math background is solid as well.

Precalculus,
#### Precalculus

As of this past spring semester I have completed calculus 3 and linear algebra, essentially sophomore level college math. I scored a 5 on the AP BC Calculus exam last year (and a 5 on the AB subscore) as well as 5s on both AP Physics C exams (the "C" standing for calculus). In fact, when I took precalc as a junior in high school, I ended the year with a grade of over 100%. Since then, with the fluency I have ascertained from more advanced physics and math courses, I have only augmented my proficiency in the subject. For instance, physics taught me to exploit diagrams in order to provide more visual and tactical understanding of certain topics like trigonometry and vectors.

SAT Math,
#### SAT Math

I scored a 2350 on my SAT two years ago, but this was achieved through a laborious process of preparation. I know all the frustrations that arise when trying to comprehend this, at times, convoluted and counterintuitive test. I learned from the prep class I took that there are certain ways to approach the various types of questions presented on the test that will maximize both understanding and time efficiency. Each section of the test conforms to specific and easily identifiable idiosyncrasies that simply require frequent exposure and practice, with which I am more than capable of helping you.

Differential Equations,
#### Differential Equations

As of this past spring I have completed up to level 3 in calculus, known generally as either multivariable calculus or vector calculus. This means that I have learned first and second order differentials as well as first and second order ordinary partial differentials (in vector and non-vector form). Thus, I have ascertained concepts such as the gradient vector, velocity and acceleration vectors, differential equations, curvature, and normal, binormal, and tangent vectors. My familiarity in these concepts is also augmented by my physics knowledge, which essentially surmounts to all of classical Newtonian physics.

Trigonometry,
#### Trigonometry

As a mathematics and physics major, it goes without saying that I have ascertained trigonometry beyond second nature and have probably seen any problem or question a high school student could possibly encounter. At this point in my education, professors assume, and rightfully so, that trigonometric identities and situations can be solved immediately and mentally.
I have worked with multiple students so far in varying degrees of difficulty with trigonometry and have proven a capability in developing with them the same intuition I have ascertained through years of practice.

I have extensive experience as well as success in standardized tests, mainly attributable to my ascertaining of the the tricks that circumvent the counterintuitive aspects of such tests.
