About Joe

I greatly enjoy tutoring in math and physical sciences. Having taught physics both on the college level and occasionally to groups of homeschoolers, as well as tutoring various students, I've learned a great deal about helping students be successful.

While I spent some time as an education major, I ended up with a Ph.D. in Physics. Currently I work as a physicist / mathematician.

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.

Differential Equations

My qualifications for teaching differential equations start with my having received a 3.5/4.0 when I took this course in college. I then proceeded to learn more about differential equations in a number of mathematically intensive courses needed to complete my Ph.D. in physics. For 15 of the last 18 years I have held a mathematical physics research and development position at IBM where differential equations are used in what I do. Finally, I have spent two years teaching physics and have had numerous smaller teaching and tutoring experiences spread over the last 20 years.

Linear Algebra

My qualifications for teaching linear algebra start with my having received a perfect score when I took this course in college. I then proceeded to learn more about linear algebra in a number of mathematically intensive courses needed to complete my Ph.D. in physics. For 15 of the last 18 years I have held a mathematical physics research and development position at IBM where linear algebra is a mainstay of what I do. Finally, I have spent two years teaching physics and have had numerous smaller teaching and tutoring experiences spread over the last 20 years.
