About Irving

Awhile after I retired from a long career as a software engineer, I became bored and sought a worthwhile use of my time. I realized that I possessed an excellent PhD-level education in Algebra, Trigonometry, Calculus and Physics, which I could share with young students to help them get a good start in life.

I have a PhD in Physics from Stanford University. I was a Woodrow Wilson Fellow and I scored a perfect 800 on the advanced math Graduate Record Exam. During that time, I was a teaching assistant in the Physics Department. I have been tutoring online now for about 5 years and have helped many students better understand key facts, concepts, procedures, and techniques in Math and Physics. It is most gratifying to see these students develop essential skills which will serve them throughout their lives.

In order to receive a PhD in Physics, a person must become thoroughly familiar with a broad range of Math topics. These definitely include Algebra, Trigonometry, and Calculus. As a Software Engineer, I used these skills daily for over 40 years.
This extensive experience allows me to provide additional insight into the meaning of Math concepts and ideas as well as teaching the basic techniques of problem solving.

While at Stanford University, I worked at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center as a research physicist. Our team helped to understand the inner workings of elementary particles. In order to do that, we had to apply knowledge of Physics in a wide variety of areas including mechanics, electromagnetism, relativity and quantum mechanics. Nothing teaches you a subject better than using it every day. I have been successfully tutoring all AP Physics subjects for the last 5 years as well.

Nothing will make a bigger difference in what your life will be like than your education, particularly in math and science. Understanding Math is sequential, each idea builds on the previous ideas. So any misunderstanding along the way can ruin learning of everything after that. A tutor such as myself can ensure that you "get it" at every step of the way and lead to a rich understanding of the universe around you. Contact me for a free consultation.
