About Dylan

Hello everyone!

My name is Dylan, and I am a recent graduate of Western Washington University with a degree in Mathematics and Physics. I have worked as a Physics Lab Assistant for the last year, teaching various introductory physics labs. My most knowledgeable mathematics fields are Calculus, Precalculus(including Trigonometry, Geometry, and Algebra), Differential Equations, and Linear Algebra. I work best teaching college level students, however I have experience with tutoring grades as low as 5th and 6th, as well as at the highschool level.

I prefer to look at things from a wide perspective, perhaps solving a problem using multiple different methods. I feel that getting a correct answer on a question doesn't always mean you've thought about it the right way, and I encourage people to talk out with words every step of a problem or derivation.
In the past I have done some research into polynomial equations and how to find the "quadratic formula" for equations other than quadratics.
Currently my research includes finding solutions to scalar equations around Black Holes, and how these solutions might lead to a unified theory of Quantum Gravity.

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.

Dylan is an excellent tutor! He not only is so knowledgeable in both Pre-Calculus and Physics, but he is able to explain things well to my son, and is so incredibly patient as well. He is an all-around exceptional tutor!
