Experienced Math, Physics, Python Tutor with a PhD in Physics

Joel L.
I hold a PhD in Physics with 6 years of post-doctoral research and teaching experience. I have been tutoring intermediate and advanced Math and Physics topics for 15 years and programming for 10 years. This solid foundation and my gift for explaining the difficult and abstract in novel and easy-to-understand ways means that together you and I will dig into concepts and understand them on a deeper level. This approach avoids the so-called "memorization trap", which may help you pass an exam or...

Joel has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering **6 questions** submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.

## Relatable and Knowledgeable

Joel helped me "unstack" a pandas DF and showed me some great shortcuts for working in Jupyter Notebooks. He was on-time, relatable, knowledgable about the subject matter. He had an example setup based on my sample data and beforehand had researched the subject so we could jump right in.

## great Physics tutor

Joel helps my 11th grader in honors Physics. He explains the material very clearly and my son says the lessons really help him stay on track.

Lenore, 19 lessons with Joel

## Very helpful tutor for college calculus

Joel helped me review a final college Calculus project. He really knows the material and even though it was our first time working together he quickly understood the project and helped me a lot. I would highly recommend him.

## helpful and caring about the project!

Joel was willing to go above and beyond to help me with the Python project I needed help with. He spent time outside of our scheduled lessons to learn some of the background information needed to help me with the specific application of Python I was struggling with, and he was really helpful in explaining to me the different steps in my code!

## Thoroughly expertised, patient, and clear

Joel explained to me difficult college Physics 3 concepts such as differential equations for damped and underdamped motion and oscillators, linear algebra, Fourier series and transform, and normal modes with ease and clarity. He was extremely patient with going over every detail I did not understand, and explained all solving methods in a concise and organized manner. I am very grateful to have Joel's help with getting through my challenging class!
