Dr. Erik Brugamyer

Hello, my name is Erik Brugamyer (aka “Dr. B”)

I would love to become your physics and mathematics tutor. If you’re looking for a dynamic, experienced physics and math tutor then you’ve come to the right place!

I’m a professional physics and math teacher and tutor with a Ph.D. in Astrophysics. Over the past 15 years, I’ve helped thousands of students find success in their physics and math classes by bringing a unique blend of knowledge, passion, insight, and empathy into my tutoring sessions. I, too, struggled a bit in my first physics and math classes, so I understand many of the ways in which common misconceptions and errors arise.

My job is to help you understand, learn, and hopefully appreciate physics and math. Towards that end, I focus first on the basic concepts – the math machinery comes later.  All too often, the “point” seems to get lost in the math. If you’ve ever said to yourself while trying to work a physics or math problem:
“I have no idea where to start!?”, then I can definitely help you.
