Math and Science Tutoring
I am a retired physical scientist offering high school and lower division college students tutoring in mathematics, statistics and physics.
I have tutored with the company Tutor Doctor since March 2014 with over 200 hours of tutoring experience. My main subjects are calculus, physics and statistics, including both AP and college levels. The local (Palos Verdes) company website is tutordoctorpalosverdes.com.
I have also passed the math and statistics qualification tests for the tutoring company Wyzant, although I am not currently affiliated with them.
I have tutored a special needs college student (CSU Fullerton) in various classes (history, geography, personal finance).
