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, and I am usually available for one-on-one tutoring during the we...

Walter has been very patient, a good listener, and intuitive on how to tackle a broad range of mathematical problems. His background is solid as a PhD candidate in Physics at USC. He is very busy, but tries to be fair to his students with his time.

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.

Walter was great with helping me understand the Matlab concepts taught during my upper-division course. Through his guidance I was able to get A's on all of my projects and more importantly gain a solid grasp of the material. His knowledge for the subject is extensive and he is very organized and always on time. The first time we met I had an assignment that was due in three days that I was struggling to complete. He made time to meet that evening and had even taken the time to look over the assignment instructions beforehand. I was impressed with his constant preparedness and professionalism.

Walter is a fantastic and patient explainer who has been of tremendous help to our son in 11th-grade math and physics. With Walter's assistance, our son's ability to keep up with the coursework and do well on tests has definitely improved, as has his confidence in dealing with the material. We feel truly lucky to have found Walter!
- Andrew H. from North Hollywood, CA
he went far out of his way to make sure the material is well understood, despite his busy schedule he took time to explain everything. Kept a positive attitude even when the material was tough. Very professional. Excellent tutor ... maybe even the best there is. Highly, highly recommend him.
- Emmanuel C. from Los Angeles, CA
Walter helped me with my Matlab course. He was really patient and showed up on time. He was really patient and always made sure I understood before he kept going with the lesson.
- Dayana L. from Los Angeles, CA
I was completely inexperienced in any sort of programming, and Walter helped me understand many concepts of MATLAB. He was very patient in breaking things down for me, and would even mention how this program could be applied in a future career of engineering. While I felt very lost in the beginning of the class, once I started tutoring with Walter, I began to feel much more confident in my ability. Walter was very good about making himself available for sessions that worked with both of our busy schedules, and I learned a lot from him.
- Sara A. from Los Angeles, CA
I had an 11th hour need to find someone who could help me calculate statistical measures for a research study I just completed. He responded to my call quickly and gave me options of how we could meet up. He came to my place, laptop in hand and was immediately able to help me. Walter is so patient and walked me through each step. He stayed with me till the project was finished, making sure I understood. With his expertise I was able to make my deadline and finish my project. If you need someone who is on time, courteous and extremely knowledgable, I highly recommend working with Walter.
- Rachelle L. from Burbank, CA
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.

Very helpful teacher. This was my second session with him and he is really helping me. Thank you so much! :)
- Danielle S. from Burbank, CA
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!
- Hannah N. from Valley Village, CA
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!
- Leslie B. from Santa Monica, CA
Walter is not only a great tutor, but a really nice, patient guy who always smiles and makes learning fun. He makes you feel less stressed about the subject matter (in my case, the GRE) and has a really deep understanding of the material and how to break it down into chunks that will be manageable. I worked mostly on math with him and he helped me refresh and relearn every math concept on the revised test. Most of them I hadn't touched in over 20 years!!! He writes lots of detailed notes and allows you to do problems yourself during the session. Some tutors like to just steamroll you by talking nonstop, but that's not the case with Walter. He will definitely watch you do some problems and either guide you through or correct it when you're finished. My scores overall went up significantly percentile-wise and I owe him a big debt in helping me get into Ross Veterinary School, where I am now. You can't go wrong with him!
- Alex P. from Los Angeles, CA
Walter is extremely intelligent, patient, positive and effective. My son has greatly improved in pre-calculus and his grade is proof. I strongly recommend Walter as a tutor. He is also very flexible!
- Maria S. from San Gabriel, CA
Walter U. has been tutoring my son for four months in physic and pre -calculus. We could not have chosen a more qualified tutor. My wife and I are very pleased with his work and the results and would highly recommend him.
- Michael D. from Los Angeles, CA
There are so many wow factors!! He is a great tutor, you give any problems & he'll solve it like a piece of cake. I had to do my engineering project related to MATLAB, he helped me throughout the project with great patience & always made sure that I understood everything. I would love to learn more stuff from him in future.
- GAYATRI M. from Rancho Palos Verdes, CA
Walter's understanding and ability to teach mathematics is truly a gift! He helped me to better understand complex mathematical concepts as well as reinforce some basic principles. He was always on time and ready to work which also made an impact and spoke volumes where his professionalism was concerned. I would refer Walter and or WyzAnt services as a result of my experience to anyone going forward.
