Do you find math and physics hard to understand? Don't worry. Many people do, but I can show you how to succeed. As someone who has excelled in these classes as an honors student undergraduate and who also attended graduate school at Caltech, I have the experience necessary to help you grasp the relevant concepts and ace your exams. I have successfully tutored many previous students in over 500 hours of tutoring and can help you too.

I have successfully tutored many previous students in over 500 hours of tutoring and can help you too.

I enjoy imparting my knowledge to others in a patient and understanding fashion. Moreover, I find that helping students focus on conceptual understanding sometimes overlooked in class can help them do better on problems and also increase their enjoyment of the subject.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

This introduction to higher level math above arithmetic may be daunting, but I will help you get through it, understand it, and hopefully enjoy it. Even though it may seem hard, you will be able to understand functions, solving for variable and related topics necessary to get through this subject.
Calculus,

Calculus

Calculus, while complex, is important, as it introduces students to higher level thinking about functions, as well as being indispensable for studying physics. It was really an eye-opener when I took AP Calculus BC in high school and scored a 5. There are many techniques that must be covered, and I have experience teaching them both to high-school and college students.
Physics,

Physics

I have always loved physics, majored in it in college, and took graduate physics classes at Caltech. I have tutored both high school and college students and have found ways to help students get beyond the initial air of formidability that surrounds the subject and helped them understand the material and do well in their classes and on exams.

SAT Math

I understand that the math tested on the SAT can be tricky, but I have many tricks that I have used to help students succeed that I learned when I received a 790 on the math section of the SAT. I also have received training on the new SAT and the additional subjects contained therein, so I am qualified to tutor both the new and old versions of the test.

Great Tutor!

We have had 19 tutoring sessions with Joshua. He is always fully engaged in teaching from the first minute to the last. He worked with our 14 year old on Math and Chemistry. Even though Joshua does not advertise that he can teach Chemistry, indeed he has been very knowledgeable about it. He is also very good at teaching Physics. We have noticed that Joshua is a quick-study. No matter what we asked him to teach Joshua was informative. Great tutor!!!

James, 19 lessons with Joshua

He is great!

Joshua explained everything that I got wrong to me, and then some more. He showed me what is wrong with my mistakes, and helped me get rid of them.

Henry, 10 lessons with Joshua

Very Knowledgable Tutor

Joshua was a very patient and knowledgable tutor. He recently tutored my son on his high school AP Calculus and it has helped my son in understanding the subject matter better.

Joyce, 1 lesson with Joshua

Can explain complex concepts

Joshua was able to explain complex concepts in a way my son could understand. His knowledge of math and ability to impart that to others has been a great asset for us!

Scott, 4 lessons with Joshua

Very patient

Joshua is very kind, patient, and observant of the student. He is approachable and kindly offers suggestions. As a parent I observed he asks the "why" question of the student as needed during problem solving. I will ask for his tutoring again.

Dominic , 2 lessons with Joshua

Helpful and thoughtful

Joshua was able to get started right away with my son as a new student. He kept his attention for an hour and covered a great deal of math test review material. He made note of areas of weakness and moved forward with ares he has mastered. Great tutor.
