About Brian

I am a recently retired high school science teacher with experience in teaching physics at all levels including AP1 and calculus based AP Physics C. In addition, I have excellent academic credentials including a PhD in Physics from the University of Aberdeen, Scotland and post doctoral research at Stanford. As such, I have a really good understanding what students need to learn and where they get hung up on conceptual problems. I really enjoy helping students to get over these conceptual blocks and make them successful. I also tutor math at all levels including algebra, precalculus and calculus.

Very flexible schedule and worked with my quick last minute requests. Physics just isn't for me, even now, but while I was taking my AP course junior year this was definitely a weight lifted off my shoulders, knowing I had someone experienced to go over my class problems. Thank you so much!
