My name is Jerry. I've been tutoring all levels of HS and college Math and Physics for the past four years. I enjoy helping my students, and my students really like the way I explain hard to understand concepts in Math and Physics. You might say that I have a "simplistic" approach to teaching Math and Physics. I strive to teach Math and Physics in a straightforward manner, and I teach a methodical approach to solving problems.
While at the University of Arizona, I majored in Physics and have two a BS and MS degree; one in Nuclear Physics and the other in Nuclear Engineering. I worked at a Nuclear Weapons factory when I lived in Colorado, as a Senior Nuclear Safety Engineer. I was responsible for keeping the operators safe while they handled nuclear materials. I worked with the operators and educated them on the hazards of handling nuclear materials that were the primary part of nuclear weapon components.
I moved to Las Vegas in 2002 to work on the Yucca Mountain Project and then worked at the Nevada Test Site. Since no "real work" is presently being done at either of these places I decided to retire from my engineering profession and do what I enjoy the most....TEACHING. I enjoy making a difference in a students curriculum and being a part of when a student realizes that he or she can understand and do the work that previously they found frustrating and difficult to understand. We will do lots of problems, because that is the way, I believe, a student will remember the material well enough to do well on his or her exam. I work with primarily high school and college students in subjects such as AP Physics, Statistics, Calculus, Trigonometry, Geometry and Algebra. I believe my biggest strength, is how well I relate to my students. I TEACH with a style that I would want in a tutor if I was being tutored in Math or Physics. Send me an email or give me a call, and lets get started. With me as your tutor, you will achieve the grades you want.
Great Tutor!!! — Jerry is a great tutor and has helped my son tremendously. My son has been working with Jerry for two weeks and his grade in Algebra 2 has gone from a 28% to a 74% in just two weeks! Jerry is patient and always checks to make sure my son understands the work before moving forward. Thanks, Jerry! ...
