I'm a recent graduate of Rutgers Graduate School of Education with a Masters degree in Science Education, and a major in physics, math/education minor, also from Rutgers. I've been tutoring privately and with various Rutgers organizations for the last 4 years, with over 200 satisfied students in all manner of subjects.

My Masters degree gives me a very unique way to teach the subject of Physics, and in turn, math, by trying to look at the complex interlocking equations of Physics and explain them at their base, conceptual level.

It is my tried and tested belief that if a student can get a grasp on the concepts in Physics and Mathematics, most problems after will become an overall simpler calculating experience, making homework, tests, and even just looking at the world around you and understanding the patterns a fuller, correct, and more complete experience.

As such, I always try to include real world examples of difficult concepts, so that the student can see this difficult idea in action, and begin to form an idea of how it works. The single best result I've ever gotten from this type of tutoring was after teaching one of these concepts, having one of my students sit their parents down and explain to their parents the same concept. Watching knowledge be passed along from a student who started out a novice and had grown to this level of skill and understanding validated everything about why I tutor. I hope to get the chance to work with you and have that same kind of learning experience.

Subjects I am capable of teaching include: Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Physics (any high school course or introductory college course).

Approved subjects

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.

Algebra 1

With Rutgers, I have taught a variety of pre college freshmen/college students a large number of good memory tricks and problem solving techniques for how to deal with numbers and their properties. Focus has been on seeing patterns in numbers/variables so that simplification can be made into a easy task.

Algebra 2

Over the course of two years, I have developed a number of tips, tricks, and methods to helping memory of these important skills. Methods worked with prefreshmen- seniors in college.

Physics

Tutored ~50 students to higher understanding and grades. TA'd 3 sections of college level class. Use an innovative concept based style to encourage understanding in both a mathematical and global context.

Precalculus

Working with Rutgers, I've mentored over 50 students ranging from incoming pre-freshmen to rising seniors, in the ins and outs of Pre-Calc, with a focus on how the actual tools in pre-calc will help the student prep for a real calculus class.

Awesome Tutor — Josh really is a great tutor and helped me a lot with my physics course. One of the things I really liked about him was that there was never a question I had in my homework assignments that he couldn't answer, in fact; it always awed me, and made me very happy, when I would read him a long tedious word problem and he gave me that look telling me he knew how to solve it instantly after I finished ...
