About Christos

I am currently a third year PhD student at Brown University. I got my Masters degree in Physics from Brown last year, with a GPA of 4.0. I spent my undergrad years at Rutgers University, double-majoring in Physics and Computer Science. I got my pre-college education in Cyprus.

I have extensive experience teaching physics labs, both undergraduate and graduate (have been TAing for two years at Brown). My goal is to facilitate 'understanding' of the material, not just 'knowing' it, so that students can use it independently and creatively, with mastery and confidence.

As a physics graduate student with a physics and computer science degree, I can help students with understanding anything from math (algebra, trigonometry, calculus), to physics (classical mechanics, electromagnetism, quantum mechanics, relativity, etc), and programming (I mostly use Java these days).

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.

Calculus

I have taken calculus courses all the way up to partial differential equations as part of my Physics B.S. at Rutgers University. Calculus was routinely used in higher level theoretical physics courses taken during my Masters in Physics at Brown University.

Differential Equations

Differential equations were routinely used during my B.S. in Physics at Rutgers University (GPA 4.0). These include a mathematics classes dedicated specifically to differential equations. I have continued applying them extensively at Brown University for my Masters in Physics.

Java

I have taken many courses in Java for my B.S. in Computer Science, and some during my masters degree in Physics.

Linear Algebra

I have taken many courses using linear algebra for my B.S. in Physics and Computer Science at Rutgers University (GPA 4.0). These include a mathematics class dedicated specifically to linear algebra. I have continued to apply it extensively at Brown University for my Masters, in courses ranging from '2D Game Engines' in CS to 'Group Theory' in Physics.

Physics

I got my Masters in Physics at Brown University. Currently working on my doctorate.

Christos helped to simplify complicated materials. My son was struggling in pre-calculus. It was only after 2 lessons that my son was able to boost his average significantly.
