About Dr. Jack

I am a retired teacher and professor. My reviews at WyzAnt are very strong, please review. I am very excited about the new AP Physics Exam 1 since I did some of the educational research being used in the Exam. It is a much improved Exam. I was always considered an excellent and patient teacher, receiving an award for Excellence. I taught Physics and Math. I start with a review of your interests (to relate physics and math to what you already know and like) and math skills. I advise students that they already know a lot of physics and math, or they could not function day to day. I try to build on that knowledge. I provide worksheets and bring a physics demonstration/experiment kit to show concepts in action. Most students do not learn physics or math (and most things) well by just being told, some learn by seeing and some learn by doing. I try to learn what works for you. I have tutored hundreds of students, over 400 hours of tutoring at Wyzant. I want to understand your class, teacher, and want to see your text, any workbooks, outlines and assignments. For each session it is important that you select 2 to 4 items where you need help. I try to end each session with a short discussion of what will be covered next in your class. I usually work with Alg I courses and intro algebra based physics courses and AP Physics 1, Algebra based. I am a retired teacher and professor. My reviews at WyzAnt are very strong, please review.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Physics

Tutor Physics that is Algebra based. Also tutor the new AP Physics Exam 1! I did some of the educational research that the new test is based on and am very interested in tutoring for the new Exam 1. First Exam is soon (May 6th) but good time to start to prepare for the next exam. I have a BS, MS, and PhD in Physics and have taught physics for many years.

He not only tutored her but he mentored her also. He also contacted her ...
