If you are looking for someone to help you where others have failed, or if you just want the best, then I'm definitely your tutor. Key focus must be on the student overcoming any mental barriers he/she may have to understanding the subjects. I teach concepts first and test taking second. If you know the concepts, the test results follow, but test taking strategies are also emphasized. I specialize in college level courses but am willing to tutor the highly motivated college-bound high sch... [more]

I love challenging physics problems and can help you develop the problem-solving skills needed to excel in physics. I studied physics at Stanford University under Nobel Prize-winning physicists but I was not a "natural" at either physics or higher math. I had to work hard and learn problem solving strategies. If you're a top student in other subjects but are struggling in physics, let's work together. I promise - you can learn the problem solving tactics needed for success in physics! I specialize in one-on-one math and physics tutoring for students in their homes in the New Canaan area. I w [more]

Mathematics is my strong suit, followed by Physics. My top performance in these gained me admission to the most sought out Mechanical Engineering program at a prestigious engineering college where only 1 % of students who wrote the entrance exam gained admission. I have tutored many students successfully in preparing for SAT, SAT Math I, SAT Math II, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, Trigonometry, Geometry, Algebra I and II. I focus on providing intuitive insights into the principles involved f... [more]

To complete my degree, I have taken a lot of physics courses, including mechanics, electricity and magnetism, oscillations and waves, and modern physics. I was a lab instructor and grader for freshman physics labs. This involved explaining the lab assignment to students and assisting when they had questions. I also helped with homework assignments, upon the students' requests. I have also been a grader for sophomore level mechanics, and held scheduled help sessions to which the students could go at their leisure. In those help sessions, I did anything from homework help to test review, includi [more]

I graduated from Yale summa cum laude with a BS in physics and I hold a PhD in physics from Caltech. I was employed for ten years in the physics department of Cornell University as a staff scientist at the Wilson synchrotron laboratory. For the last fourteen years I have worked as a scientist in the research division of IBM at the TJ Watson Research Center. After ten years as a professional physicist and college professor, I am now working in the field of computer science. I am fully competent to help students with not only physics and math, but also many topics in computer science. In add [more]

My approach to tutoring is designed to meet the needs of each specific student. Learning a difficult subject is all about patience, and approaching the subject matter in a way that is appropriate for the student's goals. I taught IB physics and middle school science for the 2011/2012 academic year while working at a boarding school in the Middle East. I developed a keen sense of student ability, which allows me to teach on the student's level. I was fortunate to work with students of all a... [more]

I recently graduated from SUNY Geneseo with a Bachelor's degree in geography and a minor in environmental studies, although I was a physics major and math minor for my first two years of undergraduate study. I was lucky enough to grow up in a home that stressed the importance of education and enjoying the learning experience. My father has been an elementary and middle school educator for 30 years, and continues to teach and tutor today. Having him as a role model in my life, I learned to app... [more]

I am currently a high school science and math teacher, and I hold a degree in chemistry. I have experience teaching and tutoring high school and college students with a variety of learning profiles. My experience and methods will help students improve both their understanding of the content and skills as a learner. I have experience teaching math from pre-algebra through calculus as well as high school and college level science courses. Throughout my career as a teacher, I have strived to pr... [more]

Starting in the Summer of 2013 twice a week, and continuing during the school year weekly, I have been running a physics class for exceptionally gifted students. Progressing slowly, we go more in-depth than a typical AP Physics course would. Our target is to study elementary physics in proper breadth and depth, over three-year period. The problems we consider mostly come from old Moscow physics competitions and other classical Soviet sources, which I have been adopting for this purpose. Who I am: NOT your run-of-the-mill tutor. Before a career on Wall Street, I was a professional, world- [more]

I have over five years of experience working as a tutor in math and science. I am very strong in the principles of physics from my first career as mechanical engineer. I also have home-schooled a student in physics. Physics actually can be a lot of fun. I am an experienced math tutor who is proficient in all levels of math from middle school to high school and into college. I am certified in CT to teach math in grades 7 to 12. Specific subjects I tutor include Pre-algebra, Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra II, Pre-Calculus, Trigonometry, Calculus, Probability, and Statistics. I have consistently pr [more]
