Hello everyone!

My name is Dylan, and I am a recent graduate of Western Washington University with a degree in Mathematics and Physics. I have recently moved to New York to attend CCNY to complete my Master's in Physics.

In the past I have worked as a Physics Lab Assistant, teaching various introductory physics labs. My most knowledgeable mathematics fields are Calculus, Precalculus(including Trigonometry, Geometry, and Algebra), Differential Equations, and Linear Algebra. I work best teaching college level students, however I have experience with tutoring grades as low as 5th and 6th, as well as at the highschool level.

I prefer to look at things from a wide perspective, perhaps solving a problem using multiple different methods. I feel that getting a correct answer on a question doesn't always mean you've thought about it the right way, and I encourage people to talk out with words every step of a problem or derivation.
In the past I have done some research into polynomial equations and how to find the "quadratic formula" for equations other than quadratics.
Currently my research includes finding solutions to scalar equations around Black Holes, and how these solutions might lead to a unified theory of Quantum Gravity.

Extremely helpful, very patient and clear instructions.

Dylan helped me with various derivative problems, we went over the chain and power rule. He explained the reasoning behind the first and second derivatives and how to apply them to specific examples as well as graphs.

Marek, 1 lesson with Dylan

Excellent teacher

My son is new to the U.S. school system and needs to get ready to take the SHSAT in a month now. Dylan has been a very good and knowledgeable teacher. He explains really well and my son is able to adapt easily thanks to him. We highly recommend him.

Coralie, 22 lessons with Dylan

Clear, thorough, friendly

Our reviews highlight Dylan's very intuitive appreciation for what learning maths entails. He does a great job of anticipating student needs and questions, and rather than simply hand over quick (lazy) explanations, he takes the time to develop the intuition for things in the student through examples. Being tutored by Dylan has been a great decision and I'm looking forward to continuing for quite some time.

Marcus, 4 lessons with Dylan

Great Experience

They began with an introduction to basic physics and quadratic equations. My son enjoyed the lesson and thought Dylan was clear and explained things well. Dylan was on time and definitely knew his subject

Clayton, 27 lessons with Dylan

Highly Recommended Tutor!

Dylan is a great physics tutor! He is very knowledgeable, patient, and helps me to understand the basics so that I can solve problems on my own. He has helped me to not only conceptualize problems but figure out the math end. My first lesson with Dylan was the day before my first test. He helped me understand how to use the equations, draw diagrams, and check my work to see if it made sense. I ended up getting an A on my test which I know would not have happened if Dylan had not helped me connect the dots.

Sarah, 8 lessons with Dylan

Knowledgable and also very patient

Dylan is an excellent tutor! He not only is so knowledgeable in both Pre-Calculus and Physics, but he is able to explain things well to my son, and is so incredibly patient as well. He is an all-around exceptional tutor!

Sharon, 36 lessons with Dylan

Takes time to include prior knowledge

Dylan does a great job of explaining new concepts by looping in prior knowledge. By doing this, I'm able to understand and remember the information better. He really helps me connect the dots.

LeeAnn, 2 lessons with Dylan

Liam came back from meeting with Dylan, super excited about learning Calculus!

This first session was plenary, mostly, but I think this is going to be an awesome relationship, and Liam is going to go into his freshman year of college/being a Physics major Calculus ready!! THANKS DYLAN!

Liam, 7 lessons with Dylan

Patient and easy to talk to

Dylan knew what he was talking about and was excited about the subject. He is very knowledgeable and it was nice to have someone walk me through things and make sure I understood them.

Emma , 3 lessons with Dylan

Dylan is the BEST!

Dylan is incredibly knowledgeable, patient, and great to work with. He helped me study for the physics portion on the MCAT, which led to great improvements! He is professional- consistently early to our meetings, easy to contact, and always very willing to work with my schedule. I would recommend Dylan to everyone! Thanks Dylan!!!
