Organization logo

I'm a second-year student enrolled in Mechanical Engineering at UF. I'm knowledgeable about computer science and was an intern at Grooveshark last summer. I am also well-versed in topics relating to Physics and mathematics. I received a 5 on my AP Physics B exam and a 7 on my IB Physics SL, as well as a 5 in AP Calculus AB. I received A's in college Physics 1 and 2 (with Calculus). I'm also more than happy to recommend the services of my PhD friend Eric Stetler (also here on TMS) to those seeking help from a guy who really knows math inside and out. (I'm more of a computer science/physics/music kind of guy myself, but I'm really comfortable with Calc 1, so I can help with that as well.) As for computer science, until recently I've been involved in programming an industry-quality video game (http://starryexpanse.com/), where I've become very familiar with the .NET framework and gained a very deep understanding of various algorithms and techniques in programming, as well as some computational geometry stuff. Anyways, stuffiness aside, I'm a down-to-earth guy. I'm passionate about knowledge and helping people, so I hope you'll let me help you, whatever the subject.

Noodle says

Tutor Matching Service works with universities to connect students with expertise with students who need help. There tutors are generally low cost (or sometimes even volunteer) tutors who work within their university community. Tutors don't receive vetting or training from Tutor Matching Service, but some individual schools may train or certify their tutors. We'd advise checking the profile of any tutor you're considering using for school certification, ratings, and reviews.

Tutor Matching Service says

Tutor Matching Service was created to increase access to one-on-one education and in doing so promote student success. Tutor Matching Service was originally piloted and financially sponsored by a handful of university tutoring centers (learning centers), career centers, and student governments including IUPUI, Caltech, Purdue, NYU Poly, and Kent State University. At most colleges and universities, there is no tutoring available for upper level chemistry, physics, math, languages, and other courses. College learning centers get frequent phone calls and emails from parents looking for college tutors.
