Tutor needed: Is there an odesk / elance equivalent for tutoring math/phy? Hi all, Im in my 3rd year at university studying physics and mathematics. However, Im now taking a year off from university to do self studying. My goal is to gain a deeper understanding of the subjects, as well as gaining some serious problem solving skills, and along the way I need a tutor. In fact, I need an online tutor due to various reasons. Unfortunately sites like odesk and elance dont have an academics section, which would have been ideal for my situation. I was hoping that someone here has any suggestions, because apparently - google hasn't. I had in mind a PhD/PostDoc/Assistant Professor-level tutor. It's not enough to just help me solving problems - I need to understand the concepts, proofs and theory. To give you some idea of of subjects I want to learn, here's some of the books I've bought: "Mathematical Analysis, Second Edition" - Tom M. Apostol "Problem Solving Through Problems" - Loren C. Larson; "How to Sole It" -George Pólya "Elementary Number Theory: Second Edition" - Underwood Dudley; Complex Variables" - Francis J. Flanigan; "Challenge Your Brain Math & Logic Puzzles" - Dave Tuller; "An Introduction to the Theory of Numbers" and "A Course of Pure Mathematics" - G. H. Hardy "Ideals, Varieties, and Algorithms: An Intro. to Computational Algebraic Geometry and Commutative Algebra" - David A. Cox; "Mathematical Physics" - Donald Howard Menzel; "Numerical Methods for Scientists and Engineers" - Richard W. Hamming; "Introduction to Topology" - Bert Mendelson; I have not found any sites that provides tutors on these kind of topics, although they are pretty basic. PF is a great resource indeed, but I think that for my project I need a personal tutor. I hope Im not opposing the site rules here - Im just trying to get some advice on how to get guidance along my project :) Thanks!
