PhD math/science tutor for any level

I have a PhD in particle physics from the University of Maryland at College Park and many years' experience in industry. I have taught recitation sections in physics at UMCP and college algebra at University of Maryland University College. I won an Outstanding Teaching award at UMCP. I have also provided a lot of assistance to my 13 year-old son in his math education. My approach to teaching is intuitive. I like to guide students with questions to help them develop their own understandin... [more]

Algebra 1

I have taught college algebra at the University of Maryland, University College.

Algebra 2

I have taught college-level algebra at the University of Maryland University College.


I have a PhD in particle theory and have used calculus extensively in my graduate education and career in electromagnetics. It is second nature to me and I can provide students with an intuitive understanding. I am the author of solutions to Maxwell's equations in non-orthogonal coordinate systems


I have done a lot of work in designing codes for analysis of radiowave propagation over aircraft and ship surfaces. This work is highly geometrical and has given me a very strong background in elementary and advanced geometrical techniques.


I graduated phi beta kappa from MIT with a BS in physics. I have a master's and PhD in physics from the University of Maryland at College Park. I taught recitation and laboratory sections for a number of years in my graduate career. I received an award as an outstanding teaching assistant.


I have taught college algebra for the University of Maryland University College


I have taught college level algebra (through precalculus) at the University of Maryland, University College.


In my work in industry I have been the primary designer/developer for a number of computer programs for electromagnetics applications. These programs do things like tracing rays over aircraft and ship bodies and through cities. They make very extensive use of geometry and trigonometry, so I have great facility with these subjects.



SAT Math

I scored 777 pre-recentering and 820 on GRE math. I have taught mathematics at the college level and used mathematics extensively in my career. I will have a complete understanding of most SAT/GRE questions and will be able to guide students in solving by themselves.


I scored 820 in math, 730 in verbal. I have exceptional facility with GRE-type standardized test questions and have made outstanding scores on the GRE as well as other similar tests. I have a PhD in particle physics and worked for many years in the intensively mathematical subject of electromagnetics. I have published a number of papers in recognized journals, so I claim excellent writing skills. I am a phi beta kappa graduate of MIT, because I possess strong verbal as well as mathematical skills.

SAT Reading

I scored in the 700's on the verbal portion of the SAT and GRE.

Elementary Math

Differential Equations

I have a PhD in particle physics with graduate with a graduate minor in mathematics including courses in simple differential equations and partial differential equations. I am the author of novel solutions to electromagnetics problems expressed as partial differential equations in arbitrary curvilinear coordinates.

Computer Programming

I have spent more than 25 years in my career designing, developing and programming computer codes for electromagnetics applications. I have been principal author of codes to address problems such as aircraft inter-antenna coupling and radiowave propagation in urban environments. I can code in C++ and FORTRAN


I have worked extensively with FORTRAN codes in my career. I have designed and coded electromagnetics applications software in FORTRAN. I have written numerous stand-alone FORTRAN utilities, and FORTRAN components of large multi-language codes.

Linear Algebra

I took linear algebra as an undergraduate at MIT and received an A grade. I have a PhD in particle theory. Linear algebra is important for Solutions to the Schrodinger Equation may be regarded as vectors in the space of functions. I have extensive familiarity with quantum theory, and the mathematics of linear algebra is essential to it.. I have also used linear algebra professionally. I am the author of a computer code written for the DoD that computes optimal array weights for an adaptive array antenna operating in a desired-signal, interfering-signal, and noise environment. The mathematics behind this code is linear algebra.
