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
Hi! My name is Julia A. I have been tutoring students of all ages and skill levels at learning centers, colleges, libraries and schools since 2008.

My instruction extends nationwide, with students from all corners of the US, utilizing online tutoring services such as Skype.

My main field of study is in MATH (trig, algebra, geometry, precalculus), CHEMISTRY (high school and college), and PHYSICS (high school and college).

I completed my Bachelors in Physics and Mathematics Education at Hunter University and have gained experience with both in-person and online group instruction and curriculum development.

Some examples of the students I have tutored are: Elementary school students preparing for State competitions and exams; High school and College students in preparance for entrance exams, and in subjects such as algebra, geom
etry, trig, precalc, chemistry and physics.

I do Regents and SAT/ACT prep for these subjects as well as the GRE (These are NYS based High School Preparatory Exams - do not hesitate to ask should you need assistance with the ones offered in your state/country).

In addition, I am thorough and meticulous, by paying special attention to how the student grasps information and retains it, I prepare individualized handwritten reviews, with supplemental material found online and in texts.

I assign homework to keep my students ahead of what is going on in class, and a visual and intuitive understanding of the concepts I present is important to me, so I use visual aids (diagrams and interactive models) to help my students integrate what they learn with me in real life situations.

My instruction includes:
1. Tutoring based on the school curriculum
2. Instruction on the home-schooling curriculum
3. Assisting those with a gap in going back to school/university.

I start with an assessment based on what the student has trouble with or last remembers covering in school, and prepare material going from there.

As a result, my students all have improved grades without any need for cramming before tests, and I encourage a stress-free and easygoing learning environment.

My lessons are fun and enthusiastic - these subjects are beautiful and will help open your mind to new ways of thinking - whatever your field of study!

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.

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 10 years of tutoring experience in those subjects, test prep, and mentorship programs. The teaching strategy I believe in emphasizes subject fundamentals, a powerful and necessary tool for higher problem solving. This strategy has proven effective regardless of the student's educational background or mental ability. Besides being knowledgeable, I am motivating, caring, and patient in guiding your student to academic success!

Executive Functioning is a separate realm that tutoring can assist in. It deals with cognitive processes including organization, time management, and study skills. Much of the difficulty students face in academic subjects can be attribute
d to the lack of executive functioning. They either cannot keep up with the pace and workload that advanced courses demand or haven't figured out the best way to study for themselves. I am able to assess a student's shortcomings and formulate a plan for higher achievement.

Math:
• Elementary • Pre-Algebra • Algebra 1 & 2 • Geometry • Pre-Calculus
• Trigonometry • AP Calculus • Applied/Business Calculus • Differential Equations

Physics:
• AP Physics 1 & 2 • College Physics

Test Prep:
• SAT I & II • ACT • ISEE • SSAT • HSPT • GRE • TEAS and more

Computers:
• MS Word • Excel • PowerPoint • Outlook • Adobe Acrobat • Adobe Reader • Google Drive • Skype • General Windows/MAC

Mentorship:
• Grade Monitoring • Teacher Collaboration

Executive Functioning:
• Organization • Time Management • Study Skills • Checking Work

• Completely turned around achievement and self-confidence of mentored students
• Track record of student improvement particularly in math and physics

*Cancellation Policy: At least 24 hours notice or charged for full session

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.)

About Rod
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, Combinatorics), Statistics and Science (especially Physics) . I am particularly interested in Number Theory, Systems Engineering (Feedback Theory), Electronics (Analog Circuit Design) and Cosmology. 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 th
e 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 accordingly. 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."

· GRE · In studio
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 have been tutoring math for about 2 years. I have a specific teaching style with an emphasis on breaking down concepts into simple terms that could be easily absorbed and remembered to ensure that the objective of the lesson is understood. I love answering questions and helping people to understand concepts. Physics can be a very difficult subject to learn. My goal is to help my Student fully understand the concepts. Physics is all around us and is therefore an important topic to understand. I want my students to reach their full potential while having a great time learning!

About Jonathan
I have obtained a Bachelor of Science in Engineering and a Master of Architecture. I am a Professional Engineer and soon to be Architect. Working in the construction industry requires me to work with different maths and physics principles on a daily basis. If the Student is serious about learning math and physics, I am dedicated to helping along the way. Some of the math subjects that I have experience tutoring include: Basic Math, Algebra, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, and some Calculus. Some of the physics subjects that I have experience tutoring include: Fundamental Concepts, Mechanics, Kinematics, Thermodynamics, and Electricity. The goal is to make the concepts as easy as possible to understand. I do not quit until my Student has fully understood the concepts and feel confident in their own abilities to solve problems. All that I ask i
s that my Student comes ready to learn and not to give up.

My name is Daniel and I am an honors student at Tulane University. I'm majoring in Physics, and have earned a place on the Dean's List for 3 of my semesters. I'm both an AP Scholar and an HSF Scholar. I have been teaching and tutoring many different groups from elementary to college level since the time I was 11 years old. Love to help people understand difficult topics, and I believe anything can be understood by anyone, it's just a matter of time and patience.

I started learning of my love for teaching people when I was quite young, and I've been running with it ever since. In middle school I launched my own science club for elementary and middle school students. I put together lessons on interesting scientific topics and new research and then presented it to the club members. In high school I created a biology course and taught it to middle schoolers.

In college I helped my classmates with difficult physics concepts, and helped them solve hard homework problems provided by our professor.

My areas of expertise are Physics and Math, though I occasionally like to help with Chemistry and Biology (especially Evolutionary). I try to find the point of disconnect or misunderstanding, and break down the topic in a way the student can digest it. I believe that a tutor's job is not only to help increase understanding for a given subject, but also to inspire curiosity for the wonderful universe we live in.

I scored nationally in the top 5% for the 2016 AP Physics 1 Test (naturally, I scored a 5), got a 4 on the 2016 AP Calculus AB Test, got a 4 on the 2015 AP Biology Test, and earned a 700 on the SAT II Math Test.

If you need someone to break down a weird concept, or help you see beyond the rigid framework of some idea, please hit me up, send me a message and let's get started! :)

About Derek B.

Close

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

About Derek
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...

Boise, ID

View Full Profile

Half a decade of experience teaching on a variety of subjects to learners at nearly all levels. Subjects taught include classical mechanics, electricity and magnetism, analog circuitry, statistical and thermal physics, quantum mechanics, relativistic physics, propositional logic, first order logic, modal logic, music theory, jazz improvisation, and saxophone. I started my educational journey as a musician, and it led me into physics. Anyone can succeed in physics! I approach physics as a discipline which consists primarily in problem solving, and will empower students to discover reoccurring patterns in the problems they face. This problem solving skill applies not only to physics, but universally to our everyday lives!

About John
John S.F. Martin Jr. is an adjunct lecturer and laboratory instructor at Boise State University where he teaches introductory physics. He has bachelor certifications in both physics and philosophy, and a minor in applied mathematics.

His five years teaching experience spanning across a variety of subjects have shown him that any student can achieve their educational goals given the right guidance. His goal is to communicate to the student a complete understanding of the problem at hand, and to do so in a way that is exciting, entertaining, and humorous.

John is a 'right-brain' creative type who spent his youth studying jazz improvisation and music theory, gathering a small collection of awards from jazz festivals. With his father he founded and ran the 'Boise Student Jazz Jam' - a series of community jazz jam sessions spanning fro
m 2012-2019.

When he entered his collegiate education he made a switch to the hard sciences. There he learned his creative skills could be put to use analyzing scientific problems from novel perspectives. He has spent three years in a biophysics research environment working on fluorescence microscopy and computational modeling of intragenomic interactions. His work has been published in the evolutionary intelligence journal.

While pursuing his physics degree, John fell in love with philosophy, and the philosophy of physics in particular. John has presented his philosophical work at several philosophy conferences, working at the confluence of physics and philosophy to improve our understanding of the fundamental nature of the universe.

More than all of this however, John loves teaching. From the first private saxophone lesson he taught to the physics lectures he now gives, he has found nothing more fulfilling than to share the perspectives he has worked to gain, and help students exceed the expectations they hold for themselves.

Available to tutor for all high school level and most standard undergraduate courses in physics.

About Chris
I am a US Navy submarine veteran and former field engineer with expertise on electro-mechanical systems who traded in his heavy tools for even heavier textbooks. Prior to leaving industrial fields, it was often a part of my job to train new personnel on equipment, maintenance practices, and documentation, which I really did enjoy and so I decided to become a teacher. Now I truly enjoy both teaching and learning. I am currently graduate student (again), now earning a Master of Science degree in astronomy and will likely continue with my PhD in astrophysics.

I have taught physics and chemistry at local high schools for the past 6 years and really enjoy the subject material, regardless of whether it is calculus-based or algebra-based. although I really do enjoy teaching mechanics and electricity the most. I always bring a good sense of
humor and positive attitude to all of my lessons and try to make physics interesting and fun.
