Multi-degrees (PhD+3 MS) Rocket scientist gives lessons of math, physics and computer programming

Methodology

My teaching method is based on examples. I strongly believe that without examples, theory becomes something abstract that is difficult to catch and therefore apply. I will make as many examples as possible until you feel comfortable to solve it.

Background

I am a doctor in Aerospace Engineering from Georgia Tech. I have 3 masters in Rocket propulsion, Computational combustion and Space transportation systems. I have taught students from high school and college with excellent results. #Mathissues? Will fix those together!

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $70/h

Details

Rate starts from 70$/hour but it will depend on the amount of actual effort that is required to prepare each individual lesson.

Principio's resume

- PhD in Aerospace engineering (Georgia Institute of Technology) - GPA 4.00
- MS in Computational Combustion (Georgia Inst. of Technology) - GPA 4.00
- MS in Space Transportation Systems (La Sapienza - Italy) - GPA 3.85
- MS in Rocket Propulsion (La Sapienza - Italy) - GPA 3.85

I am a motivated teacher that aims to get the best out if his students. I strongly believe that with a good tutoring and motivation, anyone can succeed even in difficult subjects.

I am a proficient computational scientist with specialization in turbulent combustion and fluid mechanics. My preferred programming languages are Fortran, Python and Matlab.

My lessons will be focused on the application and understanding of the subject from basic principles to more complex topics. I like to ask questions and quiz my students to constantly stimulate them and inspire self-criticism and curiosity.

Capable of identifying a student’s key areas of weakness and supplementing it with the necessary knowledge prior explaining it in a way that is easy for beginners to understand and visualise.

Hello, I’ve known Principio for 2 years and I could experience in person his teaching skills on math. Math under his guidance becomes so easy, thanks to his deep knowledge and his peculiar method, last not least, his patience and even his necessary (sometimes) strictness. So I can’t help but recommending Principio as teacher, should you need private math lessons, he can give what you are looking for.

I highly recommend Principio Tudisco as a candidate for the position of tutor in mathematics. As a PhD student, I had the pleasure of working with Principio for the past 5 years. He is an extremely driven and well prepared individual that develops inspiring relationship with his co-workers and friends.
Principio has always been driven to learn new skills and improve the fundamental understanding of a particular subject within a field of study. He has always been eagerly taking up additional tasks to fulfill his responsibilities with professors and advisors. Principio embraces any opportunity for professional development, which makes him an ideal teacher. He has a strong and repsectful rapport with people of all backgrounds.
I recommend Principio without a doubt. The combination of driven determination in problem solving and wonderful engagement with people makes him the perfect candidate.

I have known Principio socially for over 5 years now, and I have learned that he is very patient, knowledgable, and persistent person. He wants to make sure that everyone understands something new, and he loves to have meaningful and long discussions about a variety of things. I would recommend Principio because not only does he have the content knowledge, but he is also very kind and personable.
