I have taught physics, chemistry, and math (from simple calculations, algebra, and geometry through to calculus) in classroom settings and as a tutor for over 10 years, before which I studied and worked as an environmental engineer. With the sciences, particularly, I find it helpful for students to understand some of the history of the evidence for why we currently think the way we do. For instance, it's useful to trace how people used to think about atoms and how they do now, especially looking at the evidence for why that model of an atom has changed.
At my school, I was the teacher infamous for answering a question with a question in order to lead the student from what they already know through reasoning out an answer, which can sometimes take a little more time and effort than just giving the student the answer. Research proves that this is the best way to solidify your learning for deep mastery, though. Don't worry - I won't let you get too frustrated or ever abandon you
Initially trained in environmental engineering, I made the switch to teaching after spending two years as a volunteer teacher abroad. From there, I went on to earn my Masters in Teaching at Seattle University and to teach at public and private schools for the last 10+ years. I've tutored elementary students for whom English is a second language in math, tutored calculus, taught geometry and algebra, high school physics, and introduced a new curriculum to my school for the honors chemistry class, which I also taught.
I'm a big fan of learning by inquiry (especially for science and geometry), which involves trying something out and exploring it a bit, then processing what you experienced through conversation and critical thinking. I understand that not every student is looking for this, though, so if you're just looking to get throu
gh tonight's homework, I'm there for you, too!
Though I'm originally from Washington State, I recently moved to Canada with my wife and three young kids. I'm a lifelong fan of J.R.R. Tolkien (author of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings), hiking, permaculture, and enjoying our miraculous universe. We're hoping someday soon to build our own little hobbit-hole house homestead...
Physics is the most fundamental of all sciences. It describes the way things work in the real world, so I encourage students to approach it first from an intuitive point of view. With my approach, you will not only do better in any physics course you're taking, but you can also expect to have a much better understanding of the world around you.
I tutor beginning French, high school and college physics, and mathematics from basic arithmetic through calculus. I home-schooled my own kids—two daughters who are now straight-A students at university, including mathematics.
I first began teaching French in 1965 when I was a 3rd year high school French student, helping other students who were struggling to learn the language. Everyone whom I helped showed great improvement in their comprehension.
I'm a retired physicist and engineer who worked as the senior scientist for a consulting engineering firm. Over the years I have helped many students who were having difficulty with algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and calculus, as well as physics.
I remember what it was like to feel lost and intimidated by math problems that looked difficult. Geometry was easy for me, but algebra was
a struggle, until I figured out a fundamental approach that simplified everything. In turn, that approach made it much easier to understand trigonometry.
Similarly, I had a difficult time with high school calculus until I took physics. Once I saw that there was a practical use for the mathematics, it all became clear.
I know what my stumbling blocks were, and how I got past them. That's why I believe I can help anyone who's having a tough time with mathematics, at any level.
6.5 years of teaching experience. Completed Irodov ( book with world's toughest physics numericals ). Expert in training for Senior Physics Olympiad. Can explain you even the toughest concepts in very easy and entertaining manner. Physics topics that i teach are following: 1) whole mechanics 2) SHM and Waves 3) Fluids. 4) Heat and Thermodynamics. 5) Electrodynamics. 6) Geometrical and wave optics 7) Modern Physics.
Dude he be teaching good. U need to give time and practise regularly and you will see a huge increase in your grades. I joined for 4 months and it was totaly worth it. No more failing my tests but actually doing good. It was my elder sister's idea and i am happy i listened to her and joined his course. Thank u prateek. U are better than my school teachers.

Had to prepare for my SAT and he helped me so much. A very average student like me could score as high as 1400 in my sat with 700 in physics. He made me understand. I never thought i would go to a good university but here i am.

His way of teaching physics is unique. he made me visualize concepts in physics. he makes physics like a piece of cake.
I have taught more than 8,000 science, math, and foreign language lessons and enjoy spreading my enthusiasm for physics, chemistry, geometry, algebra, pre-calculus, French, and other subjects. I am patient, understanding, and knowledgeable and willing to repeat explanations as often as necessary or modify my approach to aid in comprehension.
Good day. I very much enjoy tutoring students online and in person and have been tutoring students of all ages since 2011 and have provided more than 8,000 lessons. As a former forensic chemist for the Drug Enforcement Administration and a small-group water-testing laboratory supervisor for the US Air Force overseas, I graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Drew University with a major in chemistry and a minor in French. It would be an honor to aid you or your child in meeting academic and future career goals. Thank you for your time.
First lesson was yesterday and my daughter was very impressed.

Jennifer has been the biggest blessing to our family by coaching my daughter! Despite my daughter being an all honors and AP student there is still so much that she has learned from Jennifer. My daughter has benefited greatly from how Jennifer explains the concepts with patience and knowledge of the material. My daughter has described Jennifer as “ really nice and easy to talk to and ask questions”. Jeniffer has coached my daughter in AP Chemistry, Precalc and currently AP Calculus and SAT. As a mom, it’s the best thing when you know that your child will do well in a class because Jennifer is there to help her! You will be so pleased if you work with Jennifer and you definitely reach you goal of doing very well in the class! Thanks a million Jennifer for helping my daughter achieve her goal!!!!

Jennifer has tutored me 5 times so far and she is amazing! She has a way of explaining even the most complicated problems and makes them easy to understand. She is very patient and understanding. There has not been a geometry question that I have had yet that she isn't able to break down into simple and understandable steps. I have used other tutors as well prior to using Jennifer and I will never go back. I have already scheduled with her for an additional 4 times! I usually send her my questions the night before our lesson and she is completely prepared the next day. She even has a copy of my textbook for her to reference as well!
I am a Physics major at University and I absolutely love Physics. I believe that most people have a misconception that physics is hard, I believe it is possible for everyone to learn and master.
I am an outgoing person who loves all activities indoors and out. I am passionate about physics and I am a very easy going, patient person. I like to connect and I like sharing things about myself, such as my many cats. I used to teach Sunday school and tutor for my church. Now, my time is spent going around and eating great food while studying for my Major in Physics.
Anything from the fundamentals of atomic structure to the numerical solutions of non-linear partial differential equations.
I am a computational physicist and a business strategist with the navy, and an adjunct professor at NVCC in engineering and computer science. I've worked with some brilliant young scientists and engineers from all over the world and I'm a continuous learner. I have a Doctor of Science Degree in Fluid and Thermal Science as well as MBA in National Defense Strategy. My hobbies include sailing, scuba diving, martial arts (primarily taekwondo), playing ice hockey, cycling, and more.
I have been very successful removing the barriers students routinely face with new material. I will make it as accessible in the shortest time possible.
Hello, for me physics is not a study, it's a game which we use to enjoy. The word "study" makes anything boring and a formality which have to be done. Studying for only scoring in examinations will not give you a single bit of knowledge for your entire life. Physics is something which we understand, never rote. I believe in thinking practically. Physics is all around us, the only work is to identify. A person having knowledge of physics, will be able to describe each phenomena, acting in our day-to-day life. I would be teaching it in the most interesting manner, as if you are interested in anything you will be the best of that, if not, then the worst. My tution fee will be very low, as I believe that knowledge can't be purchased. And finally I assure you that until and unless you will understand, I'll not leave you. Thank you
Hello, I am a student of DPS and keen in physics. I have participated in several government science exhibition and competition and won many of them. I just love physics and understand it in a different manner. Many of my classmates and juniors asked me to teach online, as I had their doubt class personally.So, I decided to teach online. I will teach my students in a very-very clear way and until they would understand, I'll never leave them. Those students are having science project, will be provided with all the required guidelines,ideas and help,by me.
I have never seen my child being interested about studies. I may say that this teacher is god gifted. In only one hour, he taught my boy in such a way that he suddenly gain interest in physics.

He is really amazing! I was having a lot of doubt in Archimedes Principle, Pascal's Law and Bernoulli's Theorem, but cleared everything thing in the simplest manner. He explains everything with a common example, happening in our day-to-day life. He is a new teacher but the most polite and experienced. I am so happy that he is on takelessons.com.
"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
