About Michael

I have three years of experience tutoring college level math and science courses. I am currently pursuing a PhD in Physics, visiting at the Princeton Plasma Physics Lab. I received my B.S. in Physics from the University of Tulsa in May of 2010, graduating cum laude. I have completed the entirety of my Master's coursework and passed my written PhD qualifying exam. I am currently working in computational fusion theory, specifically in modelling magnetohydrodynamic instabilities and finding ways to prevent their growth. My research consists of both computationally simulating highly complex plasma systems as well as deriving new equations to model the process at hand.

Sessions consist of working through material that the student would like to focus on by providing insight and guidance to the problem solving process, detailing the underlying concepts at work, not merely showing the required equations and plugging in values.

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.

Algebra 1

I am currently enrolled in a PhD program for theoretical Physics and have years of experience tutoring advanced mathematics at the university level. Algebra is one of the most important building blocks for the subjects I deal with on a daily basis.

Calculus

I received a minor in Mathematics while earning a B.S. in Physics and have two years of experience tutoring Calculus I, II, and III at the university level. I have extensive experience using Calculus in my research work for a PhD in Physics. Typical sessions focus on the foundations of the topic that the student is finding difficulty in, and I typically work examples with detailed step-by-step analysis.

Physics

Graduated with honors with a B.S. in Physics, have completed the coursework for an M.S. in Physics and currently enrolled in a PhD program. I have two years of experience tutoring Physics at the college level through the University of Tulsa's Center for Student Academic Support, and one year of experience tutoring students in AP Physics B. Typical meetings focus on the core aspects that a student is finding difficulty in, with explanations and examples until the student feels confident enough to attempt assigned problems on their own.
