About Dillion

Hello!

I am a physics PhD student at Penn and a computational scientist interested in highly interdisciplinary research that lies at the interface of physics, chemistry, and biology.

I started tutoring my peers in high school and continued into college. My tutoring experience includes all levels of physics for engineers, all levels of calculus, linear algebra, differential equations, computer programming (Python, MATLAB, C++), econometrics, and some business courses requiring applied math skills.

The way I have helped students in the past is by going over their homework with them and working through example problems step by step until they understand the problem. Due to my extensive background in coursework and research, I am usually able to provide an insightful example of an application in some field of science. I have helped very many students through introductory physics, and all of my students have been satisfied with the outcome.

I spend most of my time at the lab, but I am often free in the evenings and have time to meet with students. I encourage all of my students to email me questions in between lessons and I am flexible with meeting students on short notice. I am always happy to help.

**Due to my limited availability, I can only meet students on Penn's campus.**

Please email me if you'd like to talk!

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.

Physics

Most of my tutoring experience is in introductory physics courses. I have a BS in physics and regularly apply physics in my research.

Efficient and Effective tutor

Dillion was quick to go over any material I showed him last minute. He also read up on problems I had sent him in advance. He took time to make sure I understood conceptually what I was doing rather than merely walk me through the arithmetic. He doesn't waste time with an agenda and makes it about whatever you're struggling with. Not only that, he is very patient and supportive.
