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 PĆ³lya

"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!
