My name is Joseph Park. I am new to the area. So, I am starting cheap ($50/hr) to fill up my schedule (though it can be negotiable). My email is [email protected] If you have questions about any of this, please ask. I am a mathematical physics researcher (NASA alum) (with degrees in both math and physics). I have been tutoring for 20 years. I am very patient and versatile. I go through solutions step-by-step. I am perceptive of and accommodating to different learning styles. I use active learning methods, while working to build students' confidence in their mathematical/logical capabilities. Though, I am completely flexible to change what I do and to do whatever the student wants me to do. I love to use parallels and analogies to things you're more used to and things you might find fascinating, as well as tying things back to the fundamentals as well as future aims and the bigger picture. Partly, I tutor elementary and middle school math, all high school math and physics classes, almost all undergraduate math and physics classes and some graduate courses (with preference to the harder stuff). I also help with some computer science, logic, and philosophy. (With computer science, I have a very broad history, mainly in data analytics, with a lot of languages and different mathematical software.) Most of my subjects are listed at the bottom. I also have a lot of experience in getting people through fundamentals of and prerequisites to higher level mathematics and physics (e.g. string theory, category theory, quantum field theory, quantum computing, ...). Something I have been helping people in the bay area with is tutoring them on category theory for industry setting, which I have the perfect resources for. I have also worked for many tutoring centers and companies, and have picked up different strategies and insights from each of them. I also have a vast plethora of academic/career insights (about school applications, scholarship applications, résumés, interships and summer programs, what schools and companies are good for what and how to make yourself more appealing to them, etc.). We can meet at a Starbucks, library, or some other public place, or we can tutor online (in home is not off the table, but I at least prefer to meet in public first). Here is my Linkedin: (My résumé, or CV, includes links to some of my research programs.) My Wyzant page shows a perfect score and two nice reviews (just please contact me through craigslist and not Wyzant since Wyzant takes about half of my money): I am also a tutor at Mathnasium: I have also developed curriculum for and taught SAT/ACT classes. I have also taught Math GRE Subject Test and Physics GRE Subject Test, and I love tutoring these! Same goes for math competitions (especially the Putnam)! I also tutor a lot of LSAT students. Since I've been asked this so often, my main research interests are applied category theory, topological quantum computing, noncommutative geometry, topological data analysis, automated reasoning, quantum gravity (string theory and loop quantum gravity, as well as the others) and grand unification theories and how their analogues can be studied in condensed matter settings (mainly, but not limited to). Subjects: ACT, SAT, GRE, MCAT, GMAT, LSAT, AP, CBEST, CSET, Elementary Math, Prealgebra (or Pre-algebra), Geometry, High School and College Algebra, Trigonometry, Precalculus (or Pre-calculus), Statistics (with or without calculus), Calculus (all forms), Differential Equations (Ordinary or Partial), Linear Algebra, Abstract Algebra, Advanced Calculus, Number Theory, Topology, Differential Geometry, Real Analysis (or Modern Analysis), Complex Analysis, Functional Analysis, Numerical Analysis, Numerical Linear Algebra, Discrete Math, Finite Math, Probability Theory, Set Theory, Logic, Category Theory, Mathematical Methods, Mathematical Physics, Physics (all forms of introductory physics), Modern Physics, Classical Mechanics, Electricity and Magnetism, Electromagnetism, Thermal Physics, Thermodynamics, Statistical Physics, Statistical Mechanics, Quantum Mechanics, Quantum Physics, Particle Physics, High Energy Physics, Quantum Field Theory, Grand Unified Theories, Supersymmetry, Special and General Relativity, String Theory, Loop Quantum Gravity, Quantum Computation, Philosophy.
