Elementary Math
#### Elementary Math

I am not only expert in physics and sciences, but I am also expert in mathematics. With that said, I also understand that elementary students need a tutor with patience, a great personality, high energy, and a knack for showing all the steps and confidence boosting. I have been tutoring my siblings, and have tutored over 40 students under age 12 in the past ten years. All my students were the top in their classes and all achieved an A. I not only have a 100% success rate with my students but have developed a system to build the basics of math and grow it for my students. If you are looking for a patient, high energy and fun personality tutor with expertise, look no further- I am available for you!

Algebra 2,
#### Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is by far- maybe the most important foundational class for Calculus and Physics. Did you know roots, solutions, zeros and x-intercepts are all synonymous? Did you know that many quadratic functions are introductory calculus? I am expert in physics as well as all mathematics and achieved an A+ in Algebra 2, Vector Calculus, and General Physics. Moreover I have tutored over 200 students in Algebra 2 and they all reached their goals! In addition, my thesis for physics was in optics, so hyperbolas, ellipses, parabolas are my bread and butter. With me, your Algebra 2 skills will increase exponentially (pun intended )! If you are looking for an expert in Algebra 2, I am your tutor!

Calculus,
#### Calculus

I have tutored calculus 1,2 & 3 for 8 years, and calculus 4(vector calculus) for four years. Moreover I am a physicist as well so my calculus sees daily use. They say calculus is baby physics and I fully agree. Moreover, I was the top Calculus 4 vector calculus student in my class of 300+ students at University of California Santa Cruz. I tutored over 40 people at a time on chalk boards to help them understand calculus-and all my students passed with an A! My reputation became well known and I began tutoring calculus 1,2 & 3 as well in the libraries. I have gotten an A+ in calculus 1,2,3 &4 and I am a physicist. I am an EXPERT in Calculus. If you are looking for an expert in calculus, look no further- I am here for you!

## Ethan was wonderful !

Ethan was very knowledgeable and my son felt very comfortable with him. He helped him understand Calculus much better. We hope to use Ethan again but due to my son's busy schedule it will be tough. I highly recommend Ethan.

Kavita, 1 lesson with Ethan

## great for 12th grade calc

My son continues to work with Ethan for extra help in understanding his calc and test prep. we tried 3 other tutors, and he's been the best so far. He has been flexible, and my son seems to feel it's helped him better understand the work at school.

Stacey, 4 lessons with Ethan

## Most Helpful Tutor on Wyzant

Ethan guided me through each one of my precalculus concepts in great detail and after a tutoring lesson with him I went on to ace my test. I recommend Ethan to anyone who wants needs a reliable and patient tutor!

Austin , 2 lessons with Ethan

## Professional and Knowledgeable

Geometry and Algebra For 9th and 10th grade. Ethan came on time and was able to know what my boys needed to learn and give us feedback. Unfortunately his schedule didn't fit with ours for the summer but I will definitely reach out to him in the future once our schedule changes again when school starts.

## Amazing tutor, very patient of explaining material

This is my first time using this app and I made an excellent choice by choosing Ethan to help me out. I am struggling in a physical science class and Ethan took the time to carefully explain and go over the material. Anytime I had a question he would answer it in a way where I can understand. He is a highly educated individual and definitely recommend him to everyone else who is struggling in a class that involves math. Thank you so much Ethan!

Liana, 1 lesson with Ethan

## Ethan is an awesome tutor!

My son has been using Ethan for Algebra 2 and Physics. My son really likes him! Ethan is always on time, polite and send a review of what they covered afterwards.

## Awesome Tutor: Engaging, and Enjoyable Sessions

Ethan was excellent. Five stars. General Physics I is required for DPT programs and is my final remaining needed course along with with PHYS II. I hate math and was terrified of taking on Physics. Ethan is a pleasure to work with and makes Physics much more bareable. He’s very engaging, flexible, energetic, outgoing, and fast-operating at this complex subject. I was expecting to look at studying for Physics as a chore, a pain, and a stress. It still is many of those things, but Ethan really helps build my confidence by breaking down the material and is extremely patient and engaging in taking and answering questions. He sends me a document at the end of every session with the work we did and explanations for how and why we did it. He answers all my questions and is very flexible with his schedule. Unfortunately, I had to stop working with Ethan because it didn’t work with my schedule. If you or your child is stressed about taking Physics, I highly recommend working with Ethan.

Rich, 2 lessons with Ethan

## Great experience!

Ethan tutored my son in 8th grade Geometry - he was able to get him up to speed on the lesson and prepare him for his weekly test. Unfortunately, due to scheduling conflicts, we're unable to proceed forward but I'd recommend his expertise to any student.

Marnie, 1 lesson with Ethan

## Thank you!

Ethan and I met up for a in person session we went over a practice test. He gave me notes afterward and help me solve all my questions, thank you!

Ernesto, 1 lesson with Ethan

## Knowledgeable, personable, patient

As a Physicist and Mathematician, Ethan has extensive knowledge of mathematics and many other subjects. I was behind in a college level math class as an older reentry student. He is helping me learn many things on the computer, as well as Excel and the college level math. I highly recommend Ethan. I will definitely ask him to tutor me in other classes in which he feels comfortable with the information. Two thumbs up!
