Qualifications & Experience

Hi there! I am a computational physicist at USC, doing research in quantum optics and solid-state physics. I teach all levels of mathematics, as well as introductory and college-level physics and various programming languages, including Fortran, Mathematica, and MATLAB. My tutoring methods are patient and adaptive to all types of students. I have tutored students of nearly every age and educational level for several years now (I'm new to HeyTutor, however), and I am usually available for one-on-one tutoring during the weekends, as well as weekday evenings/nights. If you have any questions whatsoever, or would like to learn more details regarding my services, please don't hesitate to contact me, via my HeyTutor profile :)

Not only is Walter extremely knowledgeable but also a great communicator. I was totally lost and I had fallen behind in programming in Matlab and perhaps was even underprepared for the course. However, Walter’s straightforward and simple approach to a complex topic was the only reason I understand the material now. I had tried other tutors, but none of them even came close to the level of detail that Walter provides. Moreover, his notes are easy to follow and are an amazing reference material for when I find myself frustrated. I will definitely be utilizing Walter’s services in the future for this class and others like it.

I am so happy that I found Walter! Not only is he extremely intelligent, but he is truly a great tutor. He goes at the student's pace, explains everything in detail to make sure the concepts are clear and understood, always makes the time to fit to your schedule, and is extremely easy to get a hold of. He has been a tremendous help in both 12th grade high school physics and calculus, and without him, I wouldn't have been able to end the year with an A in both classes and feel confident moving forward studying these courses. I couldn't thank Walter enough!

I am attending UCLA and one of my classes for the spring quarter was Physics…without Walter's help I would have struggled in this class. His in-depth knowledge of the subject and the ability to convey the material so I even understood it, was nothing less than outstanding. If you have college Physics (or high school) , and needed someone to guide you through this subject, Walter the person you want.

I have gotten so much more than I expected from my Mathematica tutoring sessions with Walter. He is consistently attuned to my specific needs and my skill level. He's been super responsible and thorough about following up between lessons if needed, despite his busy schedule. Thanks to Walter's responsiveness and helpful suggestions, I've made huge strides with my Mathematica project. Beyond that, his intellect and enthusiasm for learning are inspirational in themselves. What a great tutor!
