I have a B.S. in Nuclear Physics from The University of Texas at Austin. I have strong command of mathematics and physics. I am very descriptive in my teaching style, and I don't give up until my student has really understood the materials. My favorite part about tutoring is when I can make a substantial difference to students, helping them achieve their goals. Mathematics, physics, and statistics for Middle school, High School, and College are my areas of interest. I am sure that the students and parents that come to me will return with satisfaction.

Mathematics: Through so many years of tutoring experience, I have a good sense for what students should know about their subject material and how to detect their areas of weakness and strength. I've taught AB and BC Calculus, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, Differential Equations, Algebra I & II, Arithmetic, College Algebra, Trigonometry, statistics, and Geometry. Also, the standardized tests like SAT/ACT math.

Physics: I've taught different levels of physics courses such as Middle school physics, High school AP physics, college level Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Nuclear physics, Modern physics, and Electrodynamics.

I wanted to let everyone know that Jay is a great and patient tutor. He is very specific with his teaching style and offers lots of options as to how to get the solutions of the problem. Jay allowed me to tell him what I needed and did not try to overtake the session by doing what he wanted, that was much appreciated. I would recommend Jay, he is extremely knowledgeable in the subject.

I feel that my son is really lucky to have gotten Jay as his tutor. Jay is very friendly and takes his time explaining Geometry problems. He is very patient and also easy to reach on phone.

Jay has a very calm, methodical way of tutoring. He allowed my son the time to digest the material and formulate questions before moving on. He went out of his way to meet us at a public location and was very gracious!

Great tutor and very patient. My kids love Jay. He explains everything thoroughly and goes above and beyond expectation.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

First of all, I give a brief Review of the concepts my students need to know for the test. During the session, I work with my student on different approaches for solving different problems. We work on how to use "backwards" strategies and how to make good estimations and elimination of answer choices. Making good estimations and eliminating answer choices are also the best way to save the time during the test.

I have tutored Algebra to the different levels of student such as middle school, high school, and college students. I like solving for a variable, working with multiple variables, factoring quadratics, calculating slopes from the equations, concepts such as matrices, functions and rational equations. Making sure that the students understand the basics of Algebra with lots of relevant examples is my approaching style.

I hold a BS degree in Physics from UT Austin, and I have taught different level of calculus courses such as AP Calculus, Pre-Calculus, Multivariate Calculus, Vector Calculus, and Differential Equations for more than 3 years.

I'm familiar with calculus courses at many local high schools here in Austin, as well as courses at ACC and UT.

I like learning mathematics and even more I like teaching it to someone else. Being good in elementary math is a good sign of having a strong foundation in mathematics.

I have more than 5 years of experience teaching mathematics as a tutor. Helping my students to develop knowledge of problem-solving strategies has always been my focus. My interest is improving the analytic thinking of my students by obtaining a deeper understanding of underlying concepts, which will help them to succeed in the future.

I can help students of elementary science through detailed description of how things are and how they work. Additionally, it's not just Physics and mathematics I am good at. I can help students with Biology, and Chemistry too.

It is very interesting to play with geometrical structures and problems, and finding solutions. Students are often scared of the geometrical figures that they see, and they get nervous attempting the questions. I like dealing with such situations, and can help students with it.

I have tutored several students in geometry in past 4 years. Mostly, students get nervous when they have to deal with the proofs, theorems, and coordinate geometry. In this and many other situations, the best way I prefer is to teach students the general concepts that they always tend to forget and then go to the problem asked.

Physics was my major during my undergraduate degree at UT Austin. I have a strong background of courses like mechanics, heat, electricity and magnetism, electrodynamics, quantum mechanics, nuclear and particle physics, nuclear reactor physics, and etc.

As a physics graduate, I have taken calculus courses up to partial differential equations. Although, pre-calculus is a small section of calculus, it is its foundation. Better knowledge of pre-calculus is the only way to excel in the field of physics, math, and engineering. Additionally, I have taught this course to students in Austin Community College and private tutoring.

Trigonometry means “triangle measure”. So we draw and study many triangles during the study of trigonometry, especially right-angled triangles.

From the right-angled triangle we learn pythagorean theorem. We take a reference angle theta, which is not 90 degree and with that we label the opposite, adjacent, and hypotenuse sides. Ultimately, we define the sine, cosine, and tangent of an angle.

I have more than 4 years of experience of tutoring this course at high school and college level.
