About Nathan

I recently completed my Ph.D. in physics and am now working as a scientist in Newport News. I've been tutoring math and physics for nearly 10 years and I taught several undergraduate level physics courses during my time in graduate school. Feedback from my students has always been very positive. Learning new things and sharing it with others is one of my passions in life, so I'm enthusiastic about this opportunity to meet and work with new students through Wyzant!

Proficiency in mathematics has been crucial to my success as a physicist. Studying pure mathematics is also a hobby of mine. As a math tutor, I emphasize concepts over rote memorization; this teaching philosophy is essential for both the present and future success of the student.

I'm a professional physicist who loves to teach and has years of teaching/tutoring experience!

I thank you for looking through my profile and encourage you not to hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have!

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.

C++

I received an "A" in my computer science class in college at RPI which was C++ based. As a physicist I do a great deal of programming, much of which is in C++. Furthermore, as a physicist, I excel at the problem solving and algorithm development aspect of C++ programming.

Great tutor

Nathan did a great job with my son and tutoring in AP Physics! He even found some errors in the lessons that the teachers had not seen. We look forward to upcoming sessions!
