Eric C.


Richard Stockton College, Vanderbilt University

Full-Time Math and Physics Tutor Helping University and High School Students for 20+ Years

I have been tutoring Math and Physics for over 20 years. I have a Bachelor's degree in Physics with minors in Mathematics and Writing. I spent three years as a graduate student studying Physics at Vanderbilt University. I then taught high school Math and Physics for six years in Louisville, KY. Currently, I am a full-time online tutor. As a teacher, I found that each student learned the material in their own way; there are as many different learning styles as there are students. I work hard to find the right approach for each student. Many of my students have told me that it is my patience and willingness to listen to them that distinguishes me from other tutors they have worked with. Since I am a full-time tutor, I am available throughout the school year and I will always be able to make time for my students. I have a passion for Math and Physics and I am excited to share what I know. I can tutor any high school Math or Physics class. This includes all AP Physics and AP Math classes. I taught AP Physics and AP Calculus for many years, so I am familiar with the subjects and format of these tests. I can also tutor any undergraduate Physics course (General Physics, Mechanics, Electricity and Magnetism, Thermodynamics, etc.), and any related Math course (Calculus I, II, and III, Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, etc.), as well as formal or symbolic Logic.

Raphael L.


Harvard University, Yale University

Harvard and Yale grad for math and science tutoring

I majored in math and physics at Yale, and received a PhD in statistical physics at Harvard. I have also worked in scientific areas throughout my career. As such, I have very deep expertise in math and science, and I enjoy passing that on to students. I am excellent at explaining things to people of all levels and abilities. I am highly experienced having tutored full time (>2000 hours per year) for the past few years. I primarily focus on math, physics, statistics, and chemistry, to college students, high school students, and professionals. I also tutor people in competition math / science such as AMC and AIME and USPhO, as I was top 4 in the US Chemistry Olympiad, top 20 in the US Physics Olympiad, and top 50 in the US Math Olympiad.

I have experience of Teaching in USA, UK and Pakistan

I aim to help students attain goals effectively and efficiently through smart teaching practices. I believe, "Understanding beats Memory", and therefore I focus on the conceptual clarity of my students. I believe, "Understanding of the basics is the key to success", and therefore with my students I always stress on starting from the basics and progressing step by step. I believe, "Hard work beats Intelligence", and therefore my first lesson to students is always focussed on the importance of hard work and practice. I graduated from University of Sheffield, UK with PhD in Mechanical Engineering and a focus on Additive Manufacturing. MS Mechanical Engineering from Georgia Tech Atlanta, Georgia USA with a focus on Control Systems and Energy Systems. Got my BS Mechanical Engineering from University of Engineering and Technology, Peshawar, Pakistan. I aspire to be a role model for my people who live in Shangla the most backward district of KPK, Pakistan. Since my O' Levels I taught in my village schools during the summer vacation. I helped kids prepare for their exams understand the basic concepts of science. I travelled to USA and UK for my own education and gained a perspective of teaching methodologies in the best schools of three different countries. I am a self-motivated Engineering professional desiring to help raise the level of understanding of every student I can reach. I have the ability to analyze information quickly, look outside existing boundaries to identify implications and linkages and propose creative solutions. I am a dynamic leader capable of direct and open communication, seeking diverse input and persuading students by the vigor, sensitivity, and clarity of my arguments and actions. In my experience helping students understand the concepts of science by realizing the link of science to everyday life, is very effective. I am a firm proponent of education being absolutely necessary for quality life, and try to impart this to all my students.

Frequently asked questions

Physics help

Topics, levels and curriculums

Physics is a subject with depth and diversity, hence our online tutors can provide you with support on a variety of Physics topics and levels, such as:
- Electromagnetism
- Thermodynamics
- Relativity
- Classic Mechanics (The Laws of Motion)
- Newtonian Mechanics
- Gravity
- and more!
Generally, there are three competency levels for students: beginner, intermediate and advanced. These are closely related to a student's academic level, hence it should be discussed with the tutor.
Tutors can also help with various school curriculums as many of them are retired teachers or have been helping students with their past and upcoming programs.

Common Physics questions

- A block slides along a frictionless surface with a constant acceleration of 2m/s2. At time t=0s the block is at x=5m and travelling with a velocity of 3m/s.
- Where is the block at t=2 seconds?
- What is the block’s velocity at 2 seconds?
- Where is the block when its velocity is 10m/s?
- How long did it take to get to this point?
- A rocket ship flies over the surface of a planet. There hands a mass suspended by a wire to act as a simple accelerometer attached to the underside of the rocket. As the rocket accelerates at 10m/s2, the accelerometer mass is deflected by an angle of 34°. What is the acceleration due to gravity (g) of this planet?
- A very large cat sits at the center of a swing. Two scales are attached to the ropes. One scale reads 5kg.
- What does the second scale read?
- What is the combined weight of the cat and swing?
- Two blocks are connected by a massless string around a frictionless pulley. Block A is sliding across a frictionless surface and is pulled by the second block as Block B falls.
- What is the acceleration of the system?
- What is the tension in the string?
- A 50kg mass is sitting on a frictionless surface. An unknown constant force pushes the mass for 2 seconds until the mass reaches a velocity of 3m/s.
- What is the initial momentum of the mass?
- What is the final momentum of the mass?
- What was the force acting on the mass?
- What was the impulse acting on the mass?
