15+ years' experience -- math and science specialist!

If you've been muddling along with Newton's Laws or electric fields have you hitting your head against the wall, I've got your back! Focused but encouraging, enthusiastic but personable, I've patiently helped my students reach that "light-bulb moment" countless times.

Guiding someone to understanding a concept they struggle with is of course a major part of tutoring, but I'm also really big on coaching students to be methodical and have a system. Content knowledge is only part of the puzzle; problem-solving skills are crucial. Check out my testimonials to hear from my students themselves on that!

About Stephanie

NOTE: I recommend 90 minutes for a first session -- in my experience, 60 minutes tends not to be enough to both get the lay of the land and deliver a reassuring and substantive amount of support. I look forward to working with you! I went to Princeton University and studied molecular biology. I w

I am a math and physics tutor with a first class Bachelor's degree in mathematics from Imperial College London. I also took the Part III of the Mathematical Tripos course, which is a world renown graduate course at the University of Cambridge. I will also graduate with a PhD in physics from The University of Texas at San Antonio on May 2020.

My future goal is be be a researcher but I also have a keen interest in helping student from all backgrounds to develop their interest and understanding in the sciences and mathematics. This is why I have decided to also be a tutor. I have 4-5 years of teaching experience from The University of Texas at San Antonio.

My availability is flexible and I can help with homework problems and boosting confidence. My goal is to help students not only solve problems but also to help them understand and highlight fundamental concepts and principles in order for them to see the bigger picture. This way students will see how various ideas in math or ...

Taha did a great job explaining the concepts I needed in my high school physics class. He took away a lot of frustration for me. Thanks!

Taha is amazing. Hands down. My college professor doesn’t teach in a way I find helpful. I’ve tried other tutors before. Taha knows his stuff, knows how to explain it, and is able to pivot our planned lessons on the fly as I need him to. I have learned more in 5 hours with him than I did all semester, and he has helped me have a shot at keeping my 4.0 which was in jeopardy because I was struggling in physics. If I could give him 100 stars, I would. He is that good. If you need someone to help you get through physics, he is the perfect person. Thank you so much, Taha.

I am an engineer, but I am capable of communicating, unlike the stereotype. I have tutored many different types of students including medical students, engineers, business majors, and many more. All with different learning rates, and styles. Therefore, I am sure that I can help you understand the subject you need help with ease.

About Sahivy

Learning a new skill is often difficult when professors teach a big class and teaching yourself can often be difficult and boring. I will make your learning much easier, and fun (as I consider myself a funny person, and I always make my students relate to the subject in a fun way). I have been tuto

"If you are looking for an enthusiastic teacher with a love for teaching, you have found the right person. Haitham Kassem goes out of his way to make sure the student comprehends the lesson. He patiently explains again and again until he is certain that the student understands. He engages the student in his lessons, ensuring that the student will stay interested in the lesson. His friendly demeanor makes him easy to talk to and to understand."

"I can't say enough about Aalok. His wealth of tutoring experience is certainly a major advantage, however his dedication and work ethic was what impressed us the most. What started out as just a few tutoring sessions for physics evolved into a wonderful relationship, guiding my son through his SATs and ACTs. Unlike many tutors' rigid availability schedules, Aalok went out of his way to work with my son's demanding high school schedule. He established a sincere rapport with my son and continues to touch base with him even now that he's at college. I am happy to recommend Aalok -- he is an exceptional young man and an excellent tutor."

"Over the last six months, Daniel has been tutoring me on and off for my intro to physics course. I do not have a strong background in science or math, but Daniel was always able to explain everything clearly and in detail. He knows how to answer your questions and really works hard to make sure you understand the material. I highly recommend him for anyone looking for help."

"I feel compelled to share a great “find” I made last year. School had only been in session for two weeks before my kids came home lamenting that their AP Physics teacher left them totally confused and stressed out. Switching to a less demanding schedule wasn’t an option so I decided to look for some help. Lord knows, it wasn’t going to come from me or my husband! I found Daniel, a 2012 UCLA engineering grad who has been tutoring for many years. After the boys’ first meeting with him, the level of stress in our household plummeted and the boys did well on their first physics test. They ended up with A's in the class and doing well on the AP exam. We’ve decided to have him come regularly, just to make sure the boys understand the material and keep them confident. Daniel is able to help them with anything they don’t get in their calculus class as well.
So as you stare the next school year in the face, if your child has any difficulty with their studies, especially in math or physics, consider talking to Daniel. He’s a lovely young man and the boys really responded to him well."
