I studied math at MIT, where I specialized in mathematical physics -- the study of the mathematical structures and techniques that underlie theoretical physics. I have hundreds of hours of experience teaching classical mechanics (Newtonian as well as Hamiltonians and Lagrangian), electromagnetism, and quantum mechanics. I specialize in rigorous, high-level academic tutoring, test preparation, and enrichment for high school, college, and graduate students. I have ten years and thousands of hours of experience with students around the world. BIO: I studied theoretical math, literature, and phil [more]

I have a Ph.D. in physics and work professionally in biophysics and bioanalytical chemistry. (My thesis research involved the construction and characterization of computational lattice models of protein folding kinetics.) We all know more physics than we think we do. Our physical intuitions were developed in playgrounds, riding in cars, skating, riding a bike, watching water flow. As a tutor, I try to connect this already well-developed intuition with mathematical expression. It starts hard, but it gets easy quickly for most people when they pick up the rhythm of the solve. In the last six mon [more]

My name is Don. I'm a Math tutor for over 16 years. I have Mathematics and Geology degrees. i develop some strategies to help children to understand and hopefully have passion in learning. I can teach Elementary level, Algebra I & II, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus I & II, MCAS, PARCC, SAT Math, SAT 2 Math, PSAT, SSAT, GRE, Elementary-Middle School Science, Earth Science, etc. I have a tutoring office in Malden that can use for teaching. Also, I can meet and teach at a public place such... [more]

Since 2005, I've tutored over thirty students in 8th and 9th grade physics, physics for the MCAS and for the SAT subject test, advanced placement physics B and C, physics for teachers to help them pass the MTEL and for pre-med students to help them with the MCAT, college physics for non-science majors, and college physics for scientists and engineers. I've also written sections of physics workbooks and digital content for major publishers. The best way to understand most concepts in physics that are new to a student is to represent it on paper. More than any other discipline, academic physics [more]

I have a Bachelor of Science in Chemical-physics, a masters in Education, and am a licensed physics teacher (including AP). I am also an experienced tutor. I am certified to teach high school physics and AP physics is Massachusetts. I am currently on leave from teaching to raise my two young boys. Prior to leave, I was working at Brookline High School. My experience is in Engineering by Design, ELL chemistry, honor and standard level chemistry, standard and honors level physics and AP Physics B. Additionally, I have taught a class on study skills, organization, and planning for long term proj [more]

As an undergraduate and graduate student in physics, I taught physics (mechanics and electromagnetism) in several modes: a recitation instructor, teaching assistant, and tutor. As a student approaches a subject, there are two major factors to success: a solid foundation in the fundamentals and skills at solving problems. The fundamentals are very important for understanding why aspects of the subject work the way they do and to be able to build on one aspect to understand others. Being able to solve problems means the student can apply what they have learned in useful ways. As a tutor, my rol [more]

I graduated from Marblehead H.S. in 1966 and completed my Ph.D. in Engineering at R.P.I. During my career at General Electric I was a lecturer and adjunct professor at Union College Graduate School teaching engineering subjects. I always loved learning math and science and was gratified during my engineering career to see how often that knowledge was essential to my work. I was the top math student in my high school graduating class, and did National Honor Society math tutoring to under-c... [more]

I am a writer, programmer, and experienced mentor who loves teaching. Harvard College AB in Physics and Philosophy, United States Presidential Scholar, Eagle Scout, 2400 SAT. Building data products has given me experience in project management for various industries. I now write literary and design fiction. My students are motivated adults, pursuing graduate / continuing education or developing specific professionals skills on a personalized curriculum plan. For over a decade, I have enjoyed... [more]

I've been tutoring physics since 2005. I started tutoring honors physics during my junior year of high school while I was still taking the class. I did the same while taking AP calculus. Later on while I was attending MIT, I've tutored high school honors physics, AP physics, and college physics. During my senior year of MIT, I also served as a physics teaching assistant and grader at MIT. Although I tutor many other subjects (mostly in standardized tests, other sciences, and math courses), I can truly say I have the most passion for physics and enjoy tutoring this subject matter the most.

Mechanics is the basis of physics, physics is the basis of most fields of application, particularly in engineering. In addition to fundamental concepts, the study of physics develops the ability to think mathematically, and apply mathematical methods to many problems of interest, including outside of physics. Physics often provides a context for visualizing mathematical constructs and operations, which in turn feed back into a better understanding of the physics. For this reason, the concurrent study of mathematics and physics is synergistic in its effects and should always be preferred if i [more]
