About Scott

I have over 5 years and over 1000 hours of teaching and tutoring experience in math, physics, French, English and jazz piano. I have tutored all ages in the U.S. and in France (in both English and French). I scored 4 on both the AP Calculus and AP Statistics tests. I have toured internationally with my award winning high school jazz band and a community college jazz band I was a part of during high school. I did a 3-month internship in semiconductor research in Nantes, France. I also worked for HBO as a project manager and software engineer. I have a B.S. in Physics (honors) from Santa Clara University, and actually double majored in Physics and French. I studied abroad in Nantes, France for a semester in my junior year of college.

I have always loved tutoring and working with people of all ages. I am a very good explainer, and I accurately address the deficiencies in a student's knowledge of a subject. Many members of my family are teachers and I am very passionate about education.

In college, I took the most challenging courses in math and physics on all topics ranging from vector calculus, linear algebra, differential equations, analytical mechanics, computational mechanics, thermodynamics, quantum mechanics, etc., and frequently helped others out with their homework.

In high school, I played piano for two internationally traveling jazz bands. I played in China, the Czech Republic, Peru, and Scandinavia.

In 2011-2012 in France, I taught English to full classes of middle schoolers and high schoolers, as well as one-on-one tutoring classes in English, math, and physics. (I taught in both French and English.)

I am a kind, patient, precise and experienced tutor and would love to help you with whichever subjects are of interest to you!
