Private Physics Teacher

15+ years' experience -- math and science specialist!

If you've been muddling along with Newton's Laws or electric fields have you hitting your head against the wall, I've got your back! Focused but encouraging, enthusiastic but personable, I've patiently helped my students reach that "light-bulb moment" countless times.

Guiding someone to understanding a concept they struggle with is of course a major part of tutoring, but I'm also really big on coaching students to be methodical and have a system. Content knowledge is only part of the puzzle; problem-solving skills are crucial. Check out my testimonials to hear from my students themselves on that!

I have a bachelor's degree in Physics. This is my 17th year in the profession; for 11 years as a physics teacher and 5 years as director. Last year I was teaching physics in Michigan. Now, I am an assistant principal in a private school in Mt. Prospect. Since I don't want to lose my contact with teaching, I want to start tutoring. I am, originally, from Turkey and this is my 3rd year in the USA.

I am looking forward to meeting with students who want to improve their physics/math/science grades at school or get high scores in SAT or any other test.

Finding a good physics teacher/tutor, for some odd reason, is perhaps more challenging than physics itself. Physics is actually quite fun when you have someone who can effectively communicate the more complex and counter-intuitive truths about the way our universe works.

As a physics tutor, my job is not to show off how much I know, but rather it's to help you find your understanding of the material and become great at it yourself. I do this by 1) not assuming you should "just know" how to properly set up a particular problem 2) not expecting you to "just get" why a particular phenomenon is the way it is 3) by asking you questions about what may be confusing or counter-intuitive, and using various approaches to explaining it until we find the one that works for your unique way of thinking about physical laws and properties.

Colin is a great math tutor. My daughter, who is very shy, made an instant connection with Colin after her very first lesson with him. He is extremely thorough and takes the time to ensure she understands the math concepts. He has not only built her confidence but has made math more enjoyable for her to learn. He is very patient and it is obvious that he loves to teach. If you are looking for a great teacher - I highly recommend Colin.

I come from an engineering background so math and science have always been a part of my life. I have been tutoring Calculus and Physics for years and enjoy the opportunity to work with others to help them understand it as well.

I am a goal oriented individual and that comes through in my teaching. I try to be as objective as I can, working towards tests, homework, quizzes. Going through practice problems is often the best way of identifying challenges and strengthening your knowledge as a whole. Whatever you decide your math and science goal is, I am looking forward to helping you work towards it.

About Ben

“It is not the critic that counts” Commonly attributed to Theodore Roosevelt, The Man the Arena is about action, striving and failure. We all have our own journeys and our own goals. I am a strong believer in working towards goals but any goal worth achieving will have its fair share of failure

Ben is knowledgeable and patient. After a couple of times working with Ben, my son feels much more comfortable with his Physics class.
Jeff
I couldn't be more impressed. Ben is great. I was really stressed and he helped me work through online calculus problems. It helped a lot.
Amelia
Ben was great. He helped my daughter prepare for and pass her AP Calculus test.

Having someone there to walk you through the process of studying did a lot to reduce the stress of taking the AP exam.

Highly Recommended.

"I have been doing tutoring with William for a couple weeks now and he is amazing at guiding me through the bumpy road of AP Physics. Although communication means can be a bit difficult since I was a newbie to the whole "online tutoring" thing, I realized that it was worth the struggle. Before, I had very little knowledge on the subject and did not understand most of what I was doing. William was very patient and explained every step to getting the solution on the endless problems I gave him, plus he knew every answer without even thinking twice! Even though I have a very tight schedule, he is super understanding about my constant changes in tutoring times. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a very polite and helpful tutor for physics!!!"

"Over the last six months, Daniel has been tutoring me on and off for my intro to physics course. I do not have a strong background in science or math, but Daniel was always able to explain everything clearly and in detail. He knows how to answer your questions and really works hard to make sure you understand the material. I highly recommend him for anyone looking for help."

"Excellent tutor! Daniel tutored my 13 year old son in Physics. My son went from being completely lost to getting an A in the class. Very professional, explains topics clearly, connects well with student. My son loved the Skype/online white board method of teaching. No need to go anywhere or sit in traffic. Daniel was flexible with setting up lessons and even made time when urgently needed, like before a test. My son had a great experience and can't wait to learn with Daniel again when he gets to HS physics."

"I can't say enough about Aalok. His wealth of tutoring experience is certainly a major advantage, however his dedication and work ethic was what impressed us the most. What started out as just a few tutoring sessions for physics evolved into a wonderful relationship, guiding my son through his SATs and ACTs. Unlike many tutors' rigid availability schedules, Aalok went out of his way to work with my son's demanding high school schedule. He established a sincere rapport with my son and continues to touch base with him even now that he's at college. I am happy to recommend Aalok -- he is an exceptional young man and an excellent tutor."
