Bio

My full-time job is teaching in a dedicated educational facility within a large engineering firm. The main purpose of the school is to give new employees, mostly recent college graduates, a solid foundation in mechanical engineering and other applied sciences, despite their varied backgrounds. Part of my teaching responsibility is to provide individualized help where needed. Courses include mathematics, physics, solid mechanics, and fluid mechanics.

My full-time job is teaching in a dedicated educational facility within a large engineering firm. The main purpose of the school is to give new employees, mostly recent college graduates, a solid foundation in mechanical engineering and other applied sciences, despite their varied backgrounds. Part of my teaching responsibility is to provide individualized help where needed. Courses include mathematics, physics, solid mechanics, and fluid mechanics. My second job is as an adjunct professor in the Mathematics Department of U. Pittsburgh, where I teach night classes.

Outside of work, I have tutored many students in Mathematics, Physics, Differential Equations, Solid Mechanics, and Fluid Mechanics, and my ratings indicate that students are happy with the results. When you are my student, I am committed to meeting your needs, and my methods are both economical and effective. Whether you need some help in understanding a subject, or have a project that you need urgent help on, you can count on me to provide the support you need!

Subjects

Homeschool

Calculus,

Calculus

As an engineer, I have learned, extensively used, and taught calculus. It is amazing how powerful calculus is in solving many day-to-day problems in science and engineering. It is derived entirely from the fundamental axioms of mathematics, but many times students run into a roadblock that keeps them from attaining a full working knowledge of the subject. My aim will be to remove those obstacles, and it is my sincere wish to see you become as proficient and enthusiastic about calculus as I am!
Physics,

Physics

Since 2000, my full-time job is as a staff instructor in a small industrial school that provides dedicated education to engineers in various mechanical and nuclear engineering courses. Naturally, these courses require a thorough understanding of physics by the students. Physics is an extremely powerful and elegant tool for understanding and predicting the behavior of objects in the universe. My goal will be not only to remove any obstacles in your way to understanding physics, but to see you become proficient and enthusiastic about it.
Precalculus

Precalculus

Pre-calculus lays the foundation for the concepts that are so elegantly tied together in calculus. Even though the tools taught in pre-calculus build on algebra and so forth, it can be frustrating to understand these new tools, or why they are important. My aim will be to identify and remove the obstacles to your learning, and to make it clear how the tools of pre-calculus will be used in calculus. I will help you to become not only proficient, but enthusiastic, in the tools of pre-calculus!

Differential Equations,

Differential Equations

As a Mathematics instructor in a graduate-level engineering school, I am very familiar with differential equations and techniques for solving them. Methods for solving ordinary differential equations include: Reduction of Order, the Method of Undetermined Coefficients, Variation of Parameters, the Frobenius Method, and various numerical approximation methods. Some differential equations that involve eigenvalues generate infinite series of orthogonal functions, including: Fourier Series, Bessel Functions, and Legendre Polynomials. Partial equations can be solved either numerically or using Separation of Variables. These are just a few of the methods that I can explain very clearly to you.

Mechanical Engineering

Since 2000, my full-time job is as a staff instructor in a small industrial school that provides advanced education to engineers in various mechanical and nuclear engineering courses. Mechanical engineering courses that I am qualified to teach are Heat Transfer & Fluid Flow and Applied Structural Mechanics. Prior to teaching, I worked in industry for 12 years as a mechanical engineer. I have held an active Professional Engineer license in Pennsylvania since 1988.

very patient

I was struggling on college level solid mechanics problems, and he was very helpful with identifying important concepts and steps.

Zach, 1 lesson with Marty

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

I have been struggling with Calculus. Marty is an expert and came to our meeting prepared. He quickly broke down the concepts we were working on until I understood each completely. Very kind and patient, I look forward to working with him again.

Gunnar, 8 lessons with Marty

Great tutor

He is giving me tutoring for my upcoming midterm. He is great and knowledgeable. He takes his time to explain each problem and is awesome at explaining solid mechanics concepts.

Ethnica, 12 lessons with Marty

Amazing Tutor!

I am trying to get a better handle on particle physics, and could not have asked for a better tutorial than working with Marty. His explanations were clear and he is knowledgeable, responsive and patient as a teacher. I look forward to our next session. Thanks Marty!

Sonia, 1 lesson with Marty

Very proficient in engineering subjects.

Marty is Fluid Mechanics guru. he is very knowledgeable and a patient tutor. He is the best fluid mechanics tutor my son had ever had. He made sure my son understood the concepts very well.

Anu, 4 lessons with Marty

Exceeds Expectations

I appreciate Marty's attention to detail and willingness to make sure I understand topics, he is always encouraging and does a good job of presenting and working through the material

Jacob, 7 lessons with Marty

Very patient and knows how to teach to your level.

Marty was helpful because I knew the majority of my subject, and he was able to help me pin point my weakness’s and work on them instead of just re-working what I already knew.

Kimball, 5 lessons with Marty

Physics

We’re very lucky to find Marty as our son tutor for Physics this semester! Marty is very intelligent, knowledgeable, professional teacher and patience too! He teaches & guides our son understand physics better and received good grades on his midterm! We’re are very happy with Marty!
