Don't let math or computer science be intimidating! My name is Mike, and I have a bachelor's degree in aerospace engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign and a master's degree in applied mathematics from the University of Illinois at Chicago. While attending the University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign, I worked as a math tutor in the Office of Minority Student Affairs, where the classes that I tutored ranged from introductory college-level to advanced undergraduate...

I studied mathematical physics from the University of Chicago. Particularly, I worked on nonlinear dispersive equations. Techniques from geometric and harmonic analysis are used to understand local and global behavior of solutions in different spaces. I have over fifteen years of experience tutoring to high school, college, and graduate students. My specialty lies in tutoring mathematics in several areas such as calculus, elementary/abstract algebra, linear algebra, differential equations, real/complex analysis, and topology. In my experience, I've found that students learn mathematics most [more]

I am an adjunct professor of physics at Oakton Community College and certified by the State of Illinois in secondary school physics. I am also a member of the Illinois Section of the American Association of Physics Teachers. I am a patient teacher, tutor or academic coach who enjoys working with young people. It's important that students feel comfortable, are open to asking questions and are encouraged to do well. As a multi-disciplinary teacher, I have a broad background in education and experience. I have been published in two journals and enjoy tutoring students in grammar, reading and [more]

I have a Master's degree in Mathematics with Distinction from Oxford University and a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics with Distinction from the University of Illinois at Chicago. I do math and physics tutoring, standardized test prep, and also have expertise in MATLAB, mathematical modeling, and data analysis. I've been tutoring students in math for the past 22 years. I have tutored students with all levels and abilities. I have taught at the university level, the community college level, an... [more]

I have six years of experience teaching physics and astronomy, and I enjoy helping people to understand difficult or abstract concepts. I have a Ph.D. in Astrophysics, and I now work for the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory outside of Chicago in particle physics and scientific computing. As an experimental physicist, I have extensive use and knowledge of computer programming and software development. I'm currently the release manager for the g-2 experiment at Fermilab, and use extensiv... [more]

I recently graduated with a PhD in Physics. I also have a masters in Electrical Engineering. Over the last six years, I have instructed many labs in Physics and Optics. Over the last summer, I also instructed a course at NIU. I prepared curriculum, prepared lectured presentations, designed homeworks and assigned tests. I have a strong background in Math. I have a PhD in Physics and have instructed PHYS-2 class over summer at NIU. I am flexible with my schedule. ... [more]

Whether students love math and science or despise the subjects, I am usually able to make the experience better for them. I explain the material in very understandable ways, and I'm able to pinpoint where a student is struggling and provide specific help where it's needed. I am particularly good at making that beast called Chemistry much less painful to deal with. One of the best compliments I received recently is that one of my students jokingly said to her mom, "I wish I could just go to th... [more]

I took AP physics in high school. I also took a year of college level physics, receiving an A all three quarters. I have previously helped a student with physics and was able to help them increase their grade significantly. Hi, my name is Brett and I am a graduate from the University of California, Santa Barbara with a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Studies with an emphasis in Chemistry. I received an Outstanding Academic Achievement Award for excellence in my major. I have worked as a free-lance tutor for the past year for middle-school and high-school aged students, speciali [more]

As a retired PhD physicist I now have flexibility to devote my energies to a young person (mid-high school through college) who is interested in learning math and science and developing a career in a technical field. Beyond math and science, I have varied interests in the liberal arts and the science-spirituality interface. Married for nearly 50 years and a father of four, 3 boys and a girl, I am at ease with helping young people learn and succeed in their chosen educational path. I have a b... [more]

I am a math and physics tutor with several years of experience, including experience teaching. While working as a tutor at my school, I was frequently one of the most sought tutors for my ability to explain the problem (often told that I did a better job of it than the teacher), as well as my patience with students. I also tutored small groups at the same time, when several students from the same class would come in. Seeing that moment of understanding when a student "gets it" is a great feel... [more]
