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 fared very well and have had a 90% pass rate for the AP exams by only my second year of teaching physics and I have taught over 1500 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

So helpful!

John simplifies ap physics and was able to go through multiple questions in an hour. He makes it easier to understand and Is fun to work with. My daughter feels more confident after her sessions.

Patty, 2 lessons with John

Patient and Excellent Tutor

John was very helpful in making me understand confusing topics with much more clarity. He gave me resources to help me visualize concepts I was less comfortable with, and was patient in explaining concepts to me and didn't stop until he knew I was feeling more comfortable. John helped make difficult problem solving much easier and nicer to handle, and gave me more confidence in my ability to solve even the most difficult problems! 10/10 would reccommend!

Hugh, 7 lessons with John

The Absolute BEST TUTOR I’ve ever had!!!

John was very professional yet relatable during the session. Not only was he doing an excellent job helping us solve the problems but he was able to explain the problems and the reasoning behind the problems. I felt like I was in a class with a professor. He has a great command and understanding of physics, if you are looking for a physics tutor look no future I personally guarantee that this is the guy you want in your corner. Thank you once again John it was an absolute pleasure. I wish I could give more stars.

Mustafa, 1 lesson with John

Excellent teacher

My son exited his session with John smiling and happy about physics. Wonderful teacher, explaining difficult concepts in an easy to understand and relatable manner. Fully recommended.

Scott, 3 lessons with John

Very knowledgeable, easy to understand

He helped me greatly. I am struggling in this ap class but Mr. John was very thorough, did a great job explaining the chapter. I will keep him on my tutoring list, that’s for sure. Thank you!

Marcella, 1 lesson with John

Knowledgeable and patient

My daughter's grades have improved drastically with the help of John. His schedule is flexible and will work with your schedule. My daughter has less anxiety and feels more confident in physics.

NYESHA, 9 lessons with John

Great lesson!

John is an excellent Physics teacher. My daughter says he taught her to think through the topic, not just give her a way to do the problems. This will build the confidence she needs to tackle a subject that does not come naturally to her. Thanks!
