The love for physics and math came at an early age, as my father was a physicist, and has helped me to be able to explain the most complex of concepts with relative ease making them understandable to my students. I have been tutoring Physics and Math for over 12 years with great success. I have taught HONORS PHYSICS, AP PHYSICS 1 with algebra and AP PHYSICS C with calculus in the Broward County school district for 2 years with great success before moving into a full time tutor and I am...

The love for physics and math came at an early age, as my father was a physicist, and has helped me to be able to explain the most complex of concepts with relative ease making them understandable to my students. I have been tutoring Physics and Math for over 12 years with great success. I have taught HONORS PHYSICS, AP PHYSICS 1 with algebra and AP PHYSICS C with calculus in the Broward County school district for 2 years with great success before moving into a full time tutor and I am certified to teach math as well. I ALSO tutor college physics.

My 1st goal for students is to make physics interesting and fun. If a student finds a subject interesting then a deeper understanding will likely follow. I do the same with math by showing what it applies to in science. Interest in the subject first is paramount. My second objective for students that I tutor, is for them to excel academically whether it be in high school or in college.

I have faired very well and have had a 75% pass rate for the AP exams by only my second year of teaching physics and I have taught over 500 students!!!

The students that I tutor have done excellent as well. I have tutored hundreds of students from High school to college and they have all developed not only a genuine interest in physics but excellent grades in their physics and math classes. (We always shoot for the A).

Teaching college physics in my AP courses to high school students allows me to make the lessons a bit more digestible since it is usually their first time taking physics. I have helped many college and grad students excel in their college courses as it was their first time taking physics. I find that most 1st year college physics courses are "weed out" courses that are packed with over 100 students. This makes it really hard for students to understand what is going on and they usually wait to seek help until they are panicked.

The best time to seek help in physics is when students first enter projectile motion. This is usually where the trouble starts and I cannot tell you how easy I can make this. Then comes forces and equilibrium problems which are also super easy to understand given a proper explanation.

If you are in high school or in college I can help no matter what stage you are in. Stay positive as most students panic and that does them no good. Contact me and let's make your life a lot easier.

STAY CALM!!! DON'T PANIC!!! HELP IS HERE.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

John is wonderful and very reliable. He is also very patient with my son and always does his best to avail himself to my son who is so hectic with other school work and activities. I am lucky to know him and very grateful for his professionalism and for always being responsive. He is invaluable help to my son and his great work at school.

Motion - physics

Very well taught!! John did a fantastic job teaching my daughter. We recommend him highly for physics. He takes time to explain things in detail. He is flexible with his scheduling and very prompt in replying to messages.

Kumar, 20 lessons with John

Physics

Once again, John really helped my son review the chapter, clarity concepts he did not understand and prepare him for his physics honors test with great results! Thank you John!

Stephanie, 2 lessons with John

Helpful tutor

We worked on what I am studying in AP Physics 1. He helped me on the difficult questions I had on my Work and Energy worksheet. He cleared up my questions I had for my upcoming test and quiz.

Excellent AP Physics Tutor!

John did a fantastic job teaching my son. He takes the time to explain physic concepts in detail. And, he was flexible with his scheduling to help my son prepare for his class work and exams.

J, 11 lessons with John

Done right, amazing teacher

Helped me understand something I was about 6 weeks behind on in a top notch private school in 2 lessons.

Traci, 5 lessons with John

Miracle worker

I came into this lesson in a pickle with about ten pages of high level physics to do. John did not hesitate in helping me for more than two and a half hours as we flew through the problems at a terrific pace. He is an amazing tutor who could do anything I asked and was very knowledgeable about the subject. He was very good to work with and I will be coming back for more help in the future.

Colleen, 1 lesson with John

Excellent AP Physics teacher

My son had hard time in understanding some concepts in AP Physics C. John explained all the concepts very patiently, in a simple manner, and made the lessons a fun to learn. John is committed and makes himself available based on the students' needs. Had more than 10 classes with him and still continuing with John whenever he needs help. I really appreciate John´s support and efforts. I would highly recommend him to anyone. - Addy
