30min increments: For =< 60mins lesson, you have to come near to my place; I will come to your place at >= 90mins.
General/Introductory Physics: Are you one of those who feel that you have to take this subject like a bad prescription? Unlike some bitter medication that is hard to swallow, my lessons can help you slowly digest, as it were, the important points in portions that can easily be understood with much better appreciation.
My interests are in electromagnetic theory, kinematics, device/quantum physics and general relativity.
90mins/lesson + travel fee; travel fee waived for 120min lessons.
(IMPORTANT: Please do NOT book any lessons without confirming with me if we have a match in schedule. I have other obligations besides tutoring so if you do not have a flexible schedule, I recommend other tutors that will match your budget and schedule.)
I specialize in NYC Gifted & Talented Test, SHSAT, ACT and also TACHS/HSPT/COOP, SSAT/ISEE, Common Core, Regents, college/graduate admissions tests [i.e. SAT, GRE/GMAT]) and tutor a number of academic subjects in Mathematics (Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus, Linear Algebra), Statistics and Science (especially Physics). I have bachelor's and master's degrees in electronics engineering and business respectively and I enjoy tutoring both children and adults.
My interests also include gifted learning and STEM education. For example, I was successful in helping a 5-year old pass the NYC Gifted & Talented Test so he could enroll in any New York City school participating in the program.
Tutoring for yourself or for your son/daughter is both an investment in time and money for a future return so please also plan accordingl
y. Now, I make sure that I do not totally depend on tutoring for income so I can maintain a certain level of quality. In other words, when there is a match in objective, budget and schedule, I am quite happy to be part of someone's educational journey. I consider it indeed a very special privelege to be able to help a student because it is my experience that effective education can be life-changing. Finally, I am aware that other tutors may be in a better position to meet your existing situation so we have to accept that and move on.
Tutoring Rate (IMPORTANT): I only do in-person tutoring because I believe effective learning is multi-dimensional and personal not flat and distant. My rates for children and teens will in principle be at least the same as adults because I actually invest more time and effort since I have to consider the feedback of at least 2 individuals (student+guardian) compared with an adult student. Different arrangements possible on a case-by-case basis. Please see each subject rate for more details.
When I am not tutoring, I am involved in projects related to technology, hospitality and service industries. I also enjoy cooking especially when I can make an ordinary dish into something extra-ordinary by adding that little "extra."
I️ was connected to Rod through a tutoring agency. I️ contacted the agency because I️ recently graduated college and wanted to get into grad school but had not taken a math class since the 10th grade. The school I️ was applying to needed a minimum math score for the GRE, which I️ knew would be a enormous stretch for me. Additionally, I️ always had trouble with math and knew I️ would need a tutor to re-teach me everything I️ needed to know to get the score I️ wanted. Initially, the agency connected me to 3 different tutors who were all absolutely terrible! Sometimes they didn’t even know how to answer sample questions in the workbooks! Finally, I was connected to Rod. After our first meeting I️ knew he would be the one who would help me improve. After a month of intense work with him my GRE math scores actually improved a full 12 points! Beyond that, he literally taught me math in a way in which I️ actually understood it. Before I️ just thought I couldn’t learn, but now I’m confident that I️ actually retained everything and it even made sense! I’m so grateful to have met Rod because before him I️ truly felt hopeless. I️ would definitely recommend Rod to anyone who is looking to drastically improve their math skills. If you’re like me and hate math, can’t grasp it, and even feel like you just can’t learn it, then definitely contact Rod now! You won’t be sorry!

I initially reached out to Rod for Algebra 1 review because I felt that my daughter lacked a solid foundation in algebra. However, after a couple of sessions, we have decided to switch gears toward geometry with Rod’s recommendation. Throughout the geometry lessons, algebra practice was incorporated. I am happy that not only did Rod tailor his lessons to my daughter’s goals but also he gave her a lot of encouragement. My daughter found it extremely helpful that she got to explain and discuss with Rod, which made lessons interactive and real learning. Now going back to school, my daughter feels confident, thanks to Rod!

Rod worked with my daughter weekly for a couple of months leading up to the NYC state tests. With Rod's careful, concerted planning and diligence, my daughter's score went from 2.4 on the 7th grade Math state test, to a 2.8 in 8th grade, which equates to a move from below the 50th percentile, to between the 50th and 75th percentile. My daughter's in-school math instruction was chaotic and disjointed, and I attribute her improvement to Rod's intervention.
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.
Teaching is what I do! I have TAed multiple classes and taught dozens of students. I teach piano and other music concepts, as well as STEM fields in school. I only teach concepts that I'm completely fluent in, however, so you always get the absolute best instruction possible!
I have been playing piano for over 12 years. I retrained from scratch in the Taubman Technique a few years ago and play with ease and effortless musicality! I have taught tons of students how to play the instrument, incorporating these concepts into their playing as well.
I also tutor in STEM topics, including all math, physics, chemistry, and others. I have tutored over 2 dozen students and helped many achieve great results. I have a Master's degree in applied physics, graduated Magna cum Laude, and am fully prepared to help you master your math/science class
Schedule a lesson with me! See yourself improve from someone who knows how people think and understands the topics enough to impart the same onto you!
I can make a hard or boring subject easy and enjoyable to learn. My priority is student success - I work to make it happen. My ability comes from extensive experience, a history of student success, and personal achievement in the subject.
Having trouble with a subject? Whether you want to work on improving your grade or aiming for your next 4.0, I'm here to help. From simple to complex, we'll work on it in a way that makes sense to you and allows you to be successful in your class.
With 10+ years of tutoring experience under my belt, I've developed a teaching style that is supportive and compassionate, but also no-nonsense. I help students work to the highest level of their capabilities, providing expert knowledge and encouraging them to be active participants in their learning.
I have a BS in Biology from the University of Minnesota as well as an MD from St. George's University. Given my background, I'm very comfortable tutoring in the areas of math and science. In addition, I have received specialized training on prepping for standardized tests such as the ACT, SAT, GMAT, and MCAT and can help students navigate the ins and outs of these challenging exams.
Anthony is a thorough professional and devoted tutor. My teenage daughter, who is homeschooling and takes 1 or 2 intensive courses at a time, was able to swiftly move through the geometry material with the excellent instruction and guidance of Anthony as her teacher.

I have referred several students to Anthony in subjects ranging from AP Physics to ACT prep. He is highly skilled in the subjects he teaches. Just as importantly he is very empathic, and kids enjoy working with him. He is kind with them while still being able to keep them focused and on track.
Focus on earning GOOD GRADES and make physics as simple as possible to understand. I design the course as per the student's requirement. I have an Engineering background with a strong base in Physics.
Focus on earing GOOD GRADES and make the subject as simple as possible to understand. I design the course as per the student's requirement. I have a strong base in Maths, Physics and have Civil Engineering background. Being a student and working professionally for a long time, I know where the student struggles in the subject matter.
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.
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!!!!
August 17, 2019
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!
You can expect a well practiced hand to guide you in solving physics problems. Includes up to college Physics 1.
I chose my career as an Aerospace Engineer because I love math and physics. I remember taking physics in high school and realizing that all of the math that I had been learning my whole life made sense and actually had a purpose!
Since then, I attended the University of Utah and graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor's in Mechanical Engineering. I am currently finishing my Master's in Aerospace Engineering at Utah State University. I love physics and math and I really enjoy helping people understand how to think through problems. I'm so excited to get to know you more in our lessons!
"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, exp
lains 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."
"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."
"Awesome tutoring job: very detailed and really refreshed my Math for me as well within the Physics. She helped me through the class and its lab so I would
very highly recommend her."
"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!!!"
"Worked through each problem thoroughly so that I understood the question being asked and how to solve it."
"I feel compelled to share a great “find” I made last year. School had only been in session for two weeks before my kids came home lamenting that their AP
Physics teacher left them totally confused and stressed out. Switching to a less demanding schedule wasn’t an option so I decided to look for some help. Lord knows, it wasn’t going to come from me or my husband! I found Daniel, a 2012 UCLA engineering grad who has been tutoring for many years. After the boys’ first meeting with him, the level of stress in our household plummeted and the boys did well on their first physics test. They ended up with A's in the class and doing well on the AP exam. We’ve decided to have him come regularly, just to make sure the boys understand the material and keep them confident. Daniel is able to help them with anything they don’t get in their calculus class as well. So as you stare the next school year in the face, if your child has any difficulty with their studies, especially in math or physics, consider talking to Daniel. He’s a lovely young man and the boys really responded to him well."
"I absolutely loved this tutoring program because it helped me understand how to calculate many different equations and problems dealing with conceptual ph
ysics. My tutor was a great help when it came to responding back to me and explaining how to do the problems step by step."
"Alex is super good at explaining why and how things worked using real world examples in a very engaging way. He's an instructor for whom tutoring is a gen
uine passion for the education of others. He patiently ensures that I thoroughly understand the subject matter and that I do not just memorize the content of the lesson for testing-related purposes (as I have in the past). His style of teaching assures that I meaningfully retain the information to ensure that it is applicable to my immediate education as well as real-world future endeavors. Going into my test tomorrow with confidence that I will get a 100%."
