About Ethan


Bio

I'm Ethan! I graduated magma cum laude with a Bachelor's degree in Physics and worked as a volunteer researcher in a condensed matter physics lab. I am CRLA certified and have 4 years of experience working with both high school and college students in the Norco College Upward Bound and STEM Supplemental Instruction Programs.

I'm Ethan! I graduated magma cum laude with a Bachelor's degree in Physics and worked as a volunteer researcher in a condensed matter physics lab. I am CRLA certified and have 4 years of experience working with both high school and college students in the Norco College Upward Bound and STEM Supplemental Instruction Programs.

I understand what it's like to struggle as a student in physics and math. If you've ever told yourself, "I'm not smart enough to learn physics" or "I'm so overwhelmed with homework, I'll never catch up", then you've come to the right place.

I first started tutoring at Norco Community College while I attended classes as a student. I learned that many students never reach their potential because they don't believe they have what it takes. Everyone has their own struggles and it does not help that often math and physics are presented in a complicated way. I am passionate about helping students reach their fullest potential. As both an experienced tutor and recent student, I understand the common misconceptions and what students need in order to successfully complete homework and perform well on tests. I love seeing the moment a student has that insight and they're able to connect with the material.

Physics subject I tutor:
High school physics
AP Physics 1, 2, and C
College physics (Mechanics, Electromagnetism, Waves, Thermodynamics)

Math subjects I tutor:
SAT Math
ACT Math
Algebra 1
Algebra 2

Excellent Tutor

Always wonderful to work with! He’s a great tutor with a lot of patience. Thank you Ethan for all of your help

Shalanda, 3 lessons with Ethan

Excellent Tutor

I have worked with Ethan several times on High School Physics. We worked on Electrical Circuits, Ohms Law, and problems to prepare for Final Exam. He’s very patient and very easy to work with. I learned a lot from him.

excellent tutor.

My 11th grader struggled in physics until he started working with Ethan. His grades went up in just one lesson, and my sons confidence has improved on the subject significantly. We are so pleased.

EXCEPTIONAL TUTOR

My son had been struggling with Physics for a while. Despite extra study sessions and a number of tutors, nothing seemed to help increase the failing Physics grade. He was consistently getting scores between 55-65% on tests. Enter Ethan...there was a 360 degree turn around when Ethan started tutoring my son. After their first session, my son received an 80% on his next test. Ethan is a patient tutor and knows how to get the message across, a true master at his craft. My son has more confidence and is now has a better understanding of the material, which was proven with his most recent test score of 100%. Ethan is amazing and he has put my son on the right track and me at ease!!

Very knowledgeable and nice tutor

Ethan worked with my son for his physics mid term exam and prepared him well by reviewing all the topics related to the test. I would definitely use Ethan again and would highly recommend him
