Experienced Tutor in Math and Physics with PhD in Physics
Hello, I’m Dr. Arnold. I retired recently as a professor of biophysics after 18 years of working for UTMB, Auburn University, and University of Houston. I started tutoring almost 20 years ago when I prepared my daughter for the PSAT and SAT. Since then, I have tutored in physics and math at all levels from middle school to college. I helped to improve students’ performance in regular and AP classes and excel in standardized admissions tests.
I love one-on-one tutoring because it allows...

Great tutoring session for my daughter
My daughter left the session 100% better and happier. She was having trouble with Algebra 2 and Arnold patiently explained everything. She is much more confident for her test. I highly recommend Arnold!
KRISTI, 1 lesson with ArnoldTutor responded:Glad to be of help. It was a nice lesson with a hardworking student.
Excellent Advanced Math Tutor!!
I am beyond grateful! Mr. Arnold is an outstanding tutor, extremely organized, and expert on SAT MATH. My son was impressed with Mr. Arnold's lesson and hopes to continue in the future! Mr. Arnold is an excellent Math teacher. Very methodical, analytical, explains well the material. He was able to show my son how to solve difficult problems in a relatively short period of time. Explanation of concepts, his analysis and ensuring strategy for solving were excellent. Mr. Arnold has very well structured lesson plans and is able to cover multiple concepts. The lessons are geared toward SAT. My son lessons run for an hour and half, Mr. Arnold goes beyond the time sometimes by an extra 20-40 minutes for no charge. Thank you for everything that you do!!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor
Arnold is a very patient and knowledgeable tutor. He was able to simplify difficult scientific concepts with real work examples to help solidify my foundational knowledge. This methodology proved valuable as it is continuing to help me understand complex topics with less effort building on this knowledge. I greatly appreciate his help!!

Very helpful!
He was very direct on what was needed for my son to catchup in pre cal and had a plan. For me his style is great because then i can plan for how long my son will need help.

Excellent
Arnold explained very clearly the concepts and methods of the probability theory that I need for my job. He illustrated probability formulas by simple, often amazing examples helping to remember the theory and solve problems.
Gennadiy, 5 lessons with ArnoldTutor responded:Hi Gene! Thanks for your kind words. Thank you, it was interesting to teach you. Please remember "the birthday problem" and be careful evaluating a probability of the combination of two events - the true result can be counterintuitive.
Understands what topics are most important.
He was able to really focus on the topics and issues that I need help with. Through discussion and examples we were able to narrow down exactly what needs to be addressed.
