Master in most physics concepts. Can identify student shortfalls and address them through the subject fundamentals approach and by tying in real world applications for easier grasp of material.

About Daniel

I'm a graduate of UCLA School of Engineering with a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering. I have a passion for explaining how the physical world works through math and physics along with 11 years of tutoring experience in those subjects, test prep, and mentorship programs. The teaching strategy I believe i

Absolutely amazing! I was struggling with Calculus but Daniel helped me get through it. Thanks to him I now know if there is a problem I’m stuck on or need help I can confidently ask him for math help.
Erin
Helped me with Introductory Physics 1 and 2! Really helped me understand the material rather than just doing the problems for me! Great tutoring!
Angela
Daniel tutored my teenage son in Algebra and Geometry for over one year. During that time, my son's grades increased and he became more confident with Math, in general. His time with Daniel set him up for success in Algebra 2 this year (11th grade). Daniel was always on time, very polite and courteous with my son! Highly recommend his tutoring service.

I am an MIT tutor specializing in math and science. I have taken Introductory Physics at MIT, and I have received near-perfect score on the MCAT Physical Sciences, which heavily tests on the test-takers' ability to solve problems given passages.

Having worked with many students, I understand that students have different demands from school and their schedule. As a result, I first meet with the students to determine and adapt my lessons accordingly. I also talk with the teachers as needed.

I also always carry around AP Physics prep books, SAT Physics prep books, and/or college physics problems (depending on the students' levels) so that the students can work on the practice problems during the lessons. I also provide them with additional resources (especially the list of concepts from the AP Physics labs) and practice problems as needed.

About Nayoon

I'm an MIT tutor specializing in math, science, and test prep and many of my students have gone on to study at Ivy Leagues, MIT, and McGill. Many of my students have also gotten 800 on both SAT Math and SAT Math 2, 750+ on SAT Reading and Writing, and 5's on the AP exams even in the midst of pandemi

Nayoon took my daughter from a failing grade to an “A”. I am indebted to her. My daughter loves Nayoon because she is interested, kind & cheery. She is ten steps ahead and understands exactly what the teacher wants her to learn. But, more importantly, Nayoon taught her how to think and not just memorize. Nayoon doesn’t try to waste time or spread out a lesson. She cares more about my daughter learning & absorbing & being prepared! My daughter now wants to take the AP exam in chemistry because Nayoon made chemistry interesting & understandable. Thank you so much!!! Hilary Kramer

Hello! My name is Omar, and I am a tutor for physics and mathematics through the collegiate level. There is nothing I enjoy more than sharing the scientific beauty of the world around us, and the math that underlies it, with my students. I help students to grasp insightful and intuitive ways of understanding physical and mathematical concepts, helping them do better in school and become better scientists. For many students, STEM can seem daunting; I hope to show them that, with the right guidance, anyone can tackle and enjoy even the most complicated science and mathematics.

There is no greater joy than helping a student reach their goals in STEM. I understand the feeling of being discouraged by difficult concepts, but I've discovered that under the right tutelage, nothing is impossible to understand. I love providing students with that guidance and watching them grow to their full potential.

When working with students, I develop a rough curriculum and gather/write problems for ...

About Omar

I'm a third-year majoring in Physics and Mathematics at the University of Chicago with >3.9 GPA. I have 1.5 years of experience with experimental work with the EGP project at Fermilab, and I'm currently working on theoretical research in relativity under Professor David Reid. I have 2 years of exper

Physics is my favorite subject to teach! I scored a 5 on AP Physics exam, 800 on the SAT II Physics subject test, and I completed two semesters of Physics during pre-med.

About Simeon

The most important attributes of any teacher are empathy and patience. I currently attend Harvard University and work as a professional writer and tutor. I've lived all over the United States, although I grew up in Scotland of all places. My scores on the SAT and ACT were perfect (1600 and 36 res

Words cannot express how awesome Simeon is....but here is an attempt. As parents, my wife and I cannot say enough great things about Simeon. Our child was preparing for his second attempt at the SAT's. Our child has a 4.0 GPA but did not do as well as he would have liked on the SAT's his first time. Our son was hesitant at first to work with a tutor since he thought he could prepare on his own and improve his score but as parents, we decided he needed outside help. That's when we found Simeon. Our son not only increased his SAT scores by almost 100 points in a very short window, but he extremely enjoyed his time with Simeon. Now that he and Simeon no longer meet on a weekly basis our son misses his time with Simeon. Simeon is extremely intelligent and has a way of explaining the concepts in a manner that anyone can understand. Simeon truly cares about the students he works with. We have another child entering high school next year and you better believe if he needs any tutoring Simeon will be getting a call.
Thelma A.
Very intellectual and patient ... Cares and wanted to help .
Sadie
Simeon has been an absolutely invaluable resource for my SAT prep. His encouragement is appropriately supplemented by challenging material and (appropriately) challenging expectations. He manages to make studying for the SAT fun rather than a laborious task and I could not recommend him more.

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.

I am taking a doctoral statistics class where the assignments are all theory and understanding of research versus specific math equations. Colin is great at helping me understand the material. I appreciate his tutoring skills. I will be using him again when I take my intermediate statistics and research class.
