About Joel


Bio

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...

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 a single homework assignment, but is ultimately not an effective way to learn.

I tutor all math subjects, from algebra on to college calculus (I, II, and III), linear algebra, and beyond. I tutor all levels of physics including AP physics, college-level physics, upper undergraduate courses, as well as graduate courses. I tutor Python, particularly in the basics of the language, Jupyter notebooks, and typical libraries, such as Matplotlib, Numpy, Scipy, and Pandas, among others.

I ask for 24 hours notice of a cancellation. I am responsive, punctual, and professional - and sometimes funny (if you appreciate math humor!).

I love tutoring because I love this stuff. And sharing it with my students, helping you find those "Eureka!" moments that bring you success in your class work and exam preparation, is a special kind of reward, all on its own.

I look forward to hearing from you and being your learning partner!

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!

The best tutor my son had ever had.

Joel is amazing. He is by far the best tutor my son has ever had. He has been helping my son throughout high school and now college with highly advanced levels of math and coding. I’d recommend him to everyone.

Joel helped me to improve my data science knowledge in python

He taught me new techniques for improving my analysis in python using new libraries and code in pandas and numpy, and better understanding of my data science project.
