About Eric

Hi, I'm Eric.

I am happy to tutor in any area of math/science/computer-programming, but I specialize in mid-higher math (calculus, probability, etc.) and physics (all levels). I work with you to build your problem-solving intuition and the ability to catch your own mistakes. My students' grades improve, and so does their outlook.

A little about me: I graduated from MIT with a Bachelor's degree in Physics, and U. Wisconsin-Madison with a Master's in Biophysics. I do this as a side-job because I love teaching. When not working, I enjoy hiking, canoeing, cycling, and swimming.

I'm happy to work with anyone, and I'm currently tutoring several high school and college students. If you cannot afford my rate, we can work something out.

The sooner you start, the more I can help you!

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.

Biostatistics

I have a master's in biophysics from UW-Madison, and a BS in Physics from MIT. My specialty was statistical physics as applied to biological problems in botany, microbiology, and molecular biology.

Differential Equations

I first learned differential equations (ordinary DEs: separable, linear, etc) in high school. While at MIT I learned more advanced methods in ODEs: certain nonlinear cases, approximate solution techniques, symmetry analysis, Sturm-Liouville etc. I have used ordinary, partial, and stochastic differential equations in my academic and private sector professional work.

MATLAB

I have used matlab for visualizing data and prototyping simulations for scientific/engineering work since 2000. Matlab is a useful first language for students working on math because the execution environment and syntax are more intuitive than in ipython, etc.
