About Scott

Hello, I have recently relocated to the Austin, Texas area after working overseas in two assignments. I am a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering. Hook'em horns! In order to achieve this, I needed to pass a stringent regimen of college math and science classes. I made straight A's in college math and physics at UT. For these reasons, I believe I am well qualified for your tutoring needs. I recently became certified for tutoring algebra 1 and physics. I soon hope to be certified for geometry, algebra 2, and calculus.

I am also an internationally ranked tournament chess player, and I am offering chess lessons! I have written three chess books which are available on-line along with my recent tournament data. I have the additional ability of being fluent in both oral and written Bengali. Should there be any students or parents whose first language is not English, but whose mother tongue is Bengali, I will have no problem communicating with you. Joy Bangla! I look forward to hearing back from prospective students and their parents!

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 an engineering graduate from UT Austin, which required passing four semesters of college calculus. To become certified as a WyzAnt tutor, I needed to pass the certification test, which normally takes half an hour. It took me all of 10 minutes and I scored 100%. As a hobby, I am a tournament chess player. The same kind of mind is required for both playing chess at a high level and for understanding algebra. I believe I am more than qualified to tutor for Algebra 1, and I look forward to being of service to whatever students might need me.

Chess

I was the 1979 Texas Junior Chess Champion. I have written three chess books.
I am an internationally ranked tournament player currently ranked inside the top thousand among active players in the US.

Physics

I got an A in both semesters of college physics as a UT engineering student. I am eager to assist physics students in any way possible and without a doubt physics will be the most difficult course you take as a high school student, so you are not alone! I will meet you with pen, pad, laptop, and physics books and we can go to work together.
