Mr John Gargalionis

 Melbourne - Carlton

Theoretical Physics PhD

Melbourne tutor in Algebra, Calculus, Computing, GAMSAT, Greek, Maths, Maths Methods, Physics, Ancient Greek, LaTeX, Python, Mathematica, C

I am a currently completing a PhD in theoretical particle physics at the University of Melbourne. I have a Master's degree in the same subject and as an undergraduate I specialised in mathematical physics, neuroscience and ancient languages (Greek, Latin and Sanskrit).

I have been tutoring privately for nine years now and have both one-on-one and classroom experience. I teach at the University of Melbourne as a tutor and laboratory demonstrator for undergraduate physics students, and have taught Modern and Ancient Greek at the Centre for Adult Education (CAE).

My experience teaching a wide range of subjects has taught me how best to explain difficult concepts to students in a clear and understandable way. I am very passionate about the subjects that I teach, and I hope to pass that passion to you!

I currently provide tutoring for the following subjects

- Physics: VCE, quantum mechanics, relativity, electromagnetism
- Mathematics: VCE (specialist mathematics, mathematical methods), calculus, linear algebra

- Modern Greek: VCE, adult second language learning
- Ancient Greek: Homer, Koine and New Testament Greek (get in touch if you're interested in experimenting with an immersive method), 5th century Athenian Greek

* Computer language courses can be run over a few weeks *
- C: Introductory scientific computation
- Python: Python core + Numpy, Scipy, Pandas
- Mathematica: Symbolic and functional programming
- LaTeX: Professional typesetting language for theses and academic journal articles (I also offer to typeset documents in LaTeX with a case-specific charge)

- GAMSAT: physics component

I am currently offering online tuition through Skype, Zoom, or other similar platforms.
