I tutor high school and college students, and help them get ahead of the program and stand out from their peers in subjects such as chemistry (first year and organic), mathematics (algebra, calculus, vector calculus, and differential equations), physics (classical Newtonian, modern, and electromagnetism), and English essay writing skills.

About Julia
Would you like a Try-Out lesson before booking a package? I understand the hesitation before making an investment, which is why I offer shorter 20 minute lessons specifically for hw help, test prep or just a compatibility check. Send me a message if you are interested - I will be happy to suggest a time frame best for your individual needs!

Whether you are interested in one lesson or a recurring schedule, student satisfaction is extremely important to me.
From my time tutoring at high school learning centers, college tutoring centers, and childhood elementary academies, I have implemented and developed my own method of teaching for my students, which includes personalized lesson plans, alternative views to math, as well as implementing a visual and contextual approach to unfamiliar subjects with the positive benefit of increasing the
student's self-esteem and confidence, and his/her ability to learn efficiently.
I do not only teach what you need to pass your next exam - I teach thoroughly and patiently with the goal of helping you manifest your unrealized potential!

With a Bachelors Degree in Physics and Minor in Math from Hunter College, Julia has over 9 years of experience tutoring students of all ages in all subjects.
Her clients find her patient, professional, courteous, and reliable.
Julia is located in NYC and teaches lessons online and over Skype or FaceTime.

Julia creates her own curriculum which is better than anything my daughters receive in their schools.
I see marked improvements in their grades for this past year, and my eldest is actually skipping fourth grade as a result of lessons. I am astounded as to my girls' progress, and greatly appreciative of our tutor's expertise.
Her patient, methodical approach to teaching is why I see us remaining with her for all of our educational instruction. She has already taught arithmetic to my youngest (3rd grade), and algebra to my eldest (starting 5th this sept!), and is proceeding with more advanced math with no issue whatsoever. I cannot recommend her enough.

I'm in a fast paced trig course at my uni, and we've covered things I never did in high school. I did 5 lessons over skype with Julia, and know I've found a keeper. She sends stuff to practice on in advance and has me work with her like I would with my professor. She comes up with practice based on my weakest areas and never shortens time. I don't even have to ask for review material because she assigns hw to work on, and basically, I'm a master at graphing now.

I did regents prep with Julia for my high school honors physics class back in 2011. I am now back with Julia for my calc-based college physics course! Her teaching style saves the day and I'm already better understanding my course material. She goes over each topic with her own notes and examples. I do what she assigns me first before I move on to my actual hw, and it brings me great results. I feel extremely confident about my upcoming midterms. Thank you!!!

I gave William 5 stars because he's the best. He is good at what he does. When ever I was getting into a panic state, William will keep calm and cool as a cucumber.
He takes his time to explain concepts when you don't understand. he will keep working with you until you meet your objectives. I'm happy with my sections with him right now, and will keep working with him. He's one of the most pleasant person I have ever met. Thanks William.

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.

About Colin
Hello there! My name is Colin and I am a senior biomedical engineering major and undergraduate researcher at UC Berkeley. Additionally, I have been tutoring math, science, and essay writing on college campuses and online since 2014. Math and science are a significant part of my daily life, which is fortunate for me as I am very passionate about both.

As a tutor, my goal is not to impress you with how much I know. Rather, my goal is to impress you by showing you how easily math and science concepts can come to you when you are presented the material the way *you* need to see and hear it. It's my guarantee to you that I will always strive to communicate the concepts effectively, listen to your questions with patience, and work with your unique way of learning to help you truly understand the material. This takes time, and it takes work
, but the rewards that come from it - high test scores, a strong GPA, and deep satisfaction of really mastering math and science concepts - are worth it many times over.

*Read a little further if you would like to know about my personal story on my journey to becoming a math and science tutor*

Admittedly, I didn't discover my passion for math and science until years after high school. In fact, I was seemingly terrible at both. This, I later found, was mainly due to poor communication and poor presentation of the concepts from my high school teachers. Almost eight years later, a genuine curiosity induced me to seek out YouTube videos on various math and science topics, and upon finding the right videos, where the material was presented effectively, it was actually fun and very satisfying to learn. In fact, I found that the concepts came rather easily to me. It was a night and day difference from my high school experience.

At this point, it was a glaring reality to me that people simply do not learn effectively when they aren't being presented the material in a very clear and interesting manner (for some strange reason, this is especially a problem with physics teachers/professors). For example, understanding *why* acceleration has units of meters per second squared makes those units much easier to memorize than simply knowing "it just does." Knowing *why* the x-coordinate of the vertex of a parabola is -b/2a, and why it's useful to even know how to find the vertex, makes it worlds easier to memorize than being told "it just is." Very few people in the world can learn effectively just by hearing dry, seemingly random information. On the contrary, people tend to learn and remember information they deem valuable. Since this discovery, it has been a goal of mine to help others learn and enjoy math and science the same way I do. I accomplish this by being a clear communicator, and teaching math and science concepts with excitement and demonstrating how this knowledge is valuable.

A drive to teach others is not the only good thing to come from my latent discovery of my passion for STEM. After teaching myself algebra through YouTube videos and various books, I enrolled in community college and placed in trigonometry. After completing my general education with a 4.0, I transferred to UC Berkeley into the biomedical engineering program and the rest, as they say, is history. Amazing things can happen when you are able to learn effectively!

I have been a classroom teacher for 11 years. I got my degree in elementary education. I have taught 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th grade. I'm best with younger grades. I can help with homework or plan a lesson over any concept you are having trouble with. I like to make learning fun. I have taught math, science, language arts, and social studies.

About Kevin
I truly enjoy teaching. I've taught in the public school classroom for 11 years. Teaching music is so so much FUN! And it should be fun for the students to learn. When I'm teaching I tell all my students that if they don't enjoy and smile about something, then we need to change something.

I would love to start lessons with you soon.

I obtained my Master's Degree in Physics the summer after my Bachelor's; you want someone who has TAed physics classes and obtained a graduate degree in it at your side to make sure you master the class and your studies.

I'm also prepared for teaching! I have TAed multiple physics classes in college and taught over two dozen students in the past year alone! I know how people learn and am fully equipped to help you master physics.

Shoot me a message to determine what the best game plan is for your individual needs. I work with students through material, practice problems, test/quiz prep, teach supplemental lectures from unclear lectures in class, and write practice materials for my students! Let me help you master this topic to meet your goals.

Alex is an amazing tutor. Working with him was a great experience. Alex identified and targeted my weaknesses in math; he reinforced whatever basics I was missing and then worked from there to polish my skills. He even worked on notes for me on his own time.

Alex was everything I needed in a tutor.

I have been communicating with Alex for about 8 months. First he was helping me with my Trigonometry class and now with Pre-Cal. I have zero issues with his performance. He is very professional and extremely knowledgeable about anything to do with Math. Keep in mind, he is good at both Math AND teaching/explaining it. I have every intention to use him for every Math class I have in my quest to obtain a degree in Com- Science. If he was living In Houston, he would probably be my wife's piano teacher.

I got tutored in Algebra for about a week and he was very accommodating of the time and when I needed more or when I needed less he was very flexible. He's an excellent tutor, he won't cut corners and will make you actually think and solve the work instead of hustling you along to the next one. If you're looking for a math tutor then I don't know that you really could find one better.

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 would not have passed my test in such a short time without her. I hired her a week before my test. She was very professional and very smart, and she used different technique to help me remember.”
- Fabiola

“My daughter is so happy about her A in math. Thank you for everything you are teaching her!”
- S., Newton, MA

I'm an MIT tutor specializing in math and test prep, and I have taught math (anywhere from prealgebra to calculus) for 5 years. I have gotten perfect scores on SAT Math, SAT Math 2, and ACT Math. I also have taken AP Calc BC, AP Chem, and AP Bio. I have been an active member of math team throughout secondary school, and my sister and I solve math problems for fun in our spare time. I am especially experienced with the gifted students.

I believe in deep learning. Deep learning helps students build strong foundation
s to succeed in future courses. To facilitate this type of learning, I show how the formulas are derived and drill the students on concepts until they fully master the materials. If you think we may be a good fit, please click the green button on the right!
