I've used calculus in my career for 35 years, as a mechanical engineer and a computational physicist. I know how to solve problems from several different perspectives, so if a student is struggling with one method, I have a repertoire of other techniques to deploy. I find that students thrive when they are given solid examples of solutions and the content isn't hidden from them. I can help expand a student's advantage with computational tools such as Excel and Matlab to accelerate knowledge and deeper understanding.

About Thomas

I am a computational physicist and a business strategist with the navy, and an adjunct professor at NVCC in engineering and computer science. I've worked with some brilliant young scientists and engineers from all over the world and I'm a continuous learner. I have a Doctor of Science Degree in F

I have been a Substitute Teacher for the Charles County Public Schools since September 2018. I started working with Grade 1and 2. During the second half of the year, I began to substitute for the 3's, Pre-K, Kindergarten, and Grade 1. It wasn't until the second half of the year, I started to enjoy helping children one on one in the Special Education Program. This is where I could concentrate on one or a small group of students who needed extra help with their classwork. I specialize in Reading, Reading Comprehensive, and Writing up to Grades 2. My students have told me that I am patience, I make learning fun, and I am very creative teaching the children at their learning pace.

Tara was wonderful when working with my boys. She was always on time, never cancelled and was always smiling. She was gentle and guided them through each project. I would highly recommend Tara to anyone who wanted a personal, quality lesson in art.

About Daniel

When I first started performing magic professionally, I found information was difficult to find. Everything in books was either poorly explained, dated, disorganized, or difficult to decipher. Besides, there was little rhyme or reason to the way information was laid out. There were no progressions

Corey
Our son (12 yrs old) has been receiving weekly lessons from Daniel since June. Daniel is a phenomenal and knowledgeable magician, is enthusiastic, works well with children, and was flexible when we rescheduled a lesson due to summer vacation plans. Our son leaves every class with a new skill or trick and we like that Daniel asks our son to practice or review skills/tricks/videos before his next class. Our son has improved his magic skills as well as widened his magic trick repertoire.

Great first lesson with Daniel. Ready for tomorrow!

I just finished my first magic lesson with Dan. He is an extremely talented magician and provided some excellent insight into some of the foundational concepts and principles for success. I am looking forward to continuing my magic educational journey with Dan!

Creative writing should never be a chore. I hope to help you free your mind, silence your inner critic, and create. Remember that writing is supposed to be fun and you can always edit later.

Once you have your ideas down I will help you edit and consolidate down into the best possible version of the story.

Forget plot, plot will happen. Just get one little idea and a few characters and let those characters tell you the story. Follow them, don't lead. You are the first big fan of this story so discover. The more you plot and outline the more rigid you'll be and the harder you'll have to push yourself to finish. Sit back and imagine you are reading someone else's work and the story will come... I promise!

"As you can see I’ve written a review for Matthew regarding my daughters success (her test was last year) so I’d like to write one for my son also. My son was not driving at the time and Matthew agreed to drive to our home and teach him for an additional nominal fee. My son also took multiple tutoring sessions with Matthew and learned something new every time. He felt confident going into the test, confident in his ability to complete the exam and do well on it. Matthew takes his time with each individual and works with their specific needs. My children needed help in different areas of the ACT and Matthew was more than capable of helping them in those areas. My sons ACT score also went up 4 points after working with Matthew! I can’t say enough how professional, kind and thorough he is."

5 Myths and Realities for Writing Fiction

Writing fiction comes with a number of myths that keep many people from giving it a serious try. Don't them get you down! Here are a few things that you might hear about the industry as you're learning how to write fiction--and the reality behind them. 1. You Have to Be a Big Name to Write Many aspiring writers are told that unless you're Stephen King or you're famous for something else, there's no point in trying to get your work noticed. But the truth is, many publishers actively look for …
