Congratulations, Cecily, on your admission to a doctoral program in Cellular and Molecular Biosciences at UC Irvine!
Jonathan enlisted my help on the GRE, graduate school applications, and a masters-level engineering course. He graduated in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic and emailed this postcard as his “virtual commencement.”

I improved 10 points on GRE Math!

Got a 93/100 on my 2nd Physics Midterm. The class ave. was 68. Thanks, Physics Man!!!

You have the magic.

You are definitely the best math teacher I have had.

He is able to convey complicated material in a very easy-to-understand way.

I got an 87% on my Physics Test … I could not have done it without you!

The course exceeded my expectations. Your dedication to your students is admirable.

This was the best course of its kind I have taken, because of Scot.

I find your material to be much easier to understand than the book.

He excels at creating an atmosphere where participation is welcome and highly encouraged — this was crucial to my progress and a real confidence builder.

Extremely clear and concise.

He always supports difficult problems with clear illustrations.

Scot’s communication skills are excellent.

This course is interesting and you make it fun.

He has a sense of humor, which lightens up the material and gets the students involved.

It is a pleasure to have such a fine instructor in our program.

Fabulous … he had many different tactics for explaining things to make it clear for everyone.

Scot rocks!
