Award-Winning Differential Equations Tutors in Washington, DC
Justin "... Most of my students have been college students in need of help with General Chemistry and Organic Chemistry. My teaching style centers on explaining concepts and making students think there way through problems. I find many students are unsure of exactly how to study for Math exams and I believe I provide good instruction for how students may best prepare in their personal study time..."

Rick "I have a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Maryland and BS in Physics from Penn State University. I tutor for various fields in science, engineering, and mathematics because I use these skills in my day job: designing cutting edge technology for a research laboratory. My best attribute as a tutor is a passion for teaching people how to apply concepts to practical problems - that's the point of learning these skills! I believe that students can most easily grasp mathematical and scientific concepts through real-world examples they can link to their everyday experience. My goal is that "aha" moment when it becomes clear what all those symbols and numbers mean in the real world.."

Nick "Ever since I can remember I have been interested in problems that have a clear answer. One of the reasons I love Mathematics is because when you arrive at an answer, it is either right or it is wrong. There is very little room for gray area..."

Paul "...I have significant experience as both a one-on-one high school tutor during college and teaching high school students after college. I find that I am always able to make the material simple and relatable for the student that I am tutoring - it is a question of presenting the material in a manner that is easy to understand. In addition, I am very patient, friendly, and easy to talk to..."

Emily "I graduated from Emory University in May 2014 with a Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience and Behavioral Biology. My interest heavily lies in the area of the brain -from how it affects our thought process to the way it maneuvers the movements of our body, our thoughts, and actions. I spent this past year post graduating serving with a program, and I had the amazing opportunity to work alongside third grade students in the school district of Philadelphia..."

Craig "I am a recent graduate of Wake Forest University where I received my Bachelor of Science in Mathematical-Economics. I began tutoring Economics through my university’s tutoring center, but soon branched out to local junior high and high schools where I focused on tutoring Math. While I always enjoyed tutoring undergraduate students, I found great satisfaction in teaching Math to struggling teenagers..."
