Math & Physics Tutor: Master of Science with 7 years experience in MX, USA & UK.

Methodology

Hello everyone,

Mathematics & Physics are like languages in the sense that they have to be practiced on a regular basis in order to master them. They are considered by many quite challenging but with enough dedication and patience one can be able to understand their beautiful logic.

I have a flexible variety of teaching methods, I can create an appropriate plan either for the student who is trying too hard or for the one who wants a deeper knowledge of a subject. At the same time, I can offer classes in English or Spanish.


"The study of mathematics,like the Nile,begins in minuteness but ends in magnificence."
-Charles Caleb Colton

Rates

Transportation Fee : $5
Rate for online lessons : $35/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $35
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $30

Details

My hourly rate applies to first year undergraduate courses. For second year courses like Differential Equations there is an extra $5 charge and for more advanced courses like Complex Variables & Quantum Mechanics a $10 extra charge.
For basic Linear Algebra (applied non-proof course) it's still $40, if it's Abstract Linear Algebra, then a $10 extra is charged.
For AP Calculus, Geometry and other High school courses, the rate goes down by $5 or $10 dollars depending on the subject.
