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

Fantastic tutor

My son loved John and said several times he wished John had been his physics teacher at school. John was enthusiastic, funny, generous with his time, and creative in structuring the sessions when my son's teacher had not provided review packets. He definitely helped my son get a better grade in Honors Physics.

John is absolutely AMAZING!!!

Where do I begin? John tutored my son in AP Physics this last year. My son has always done will in STEM classes, but, beginning in January, he was struggling. Him struggling was not an option. It was important to my son to maintain his GPA. John saved us!! My son went from struggling on the first exam (64% without John's help) to receiving all A's on every subsequent exam--ending with an A for a final grade. John was cognizant of where my son needed help and tailored his sessions to my son's weak points. John made himself available and took a genuine, vested interest in how my son was performing. Without a doubt, we will continue to use John's services throughout my son's college career!

Fantastic tutor with a sense of humor ... highly recommend

Right from the first session John was able to work with my daughter, who by the way hates her honors physics class, and got her to focus on her lesson. Each session he goes over what she’s missing so she understands it and adds a little humor into the lesson. Most of the weeks during a one hour session he teachers her what they are learning for the week In school. He can totally relate to high school teenagers which isn’t an easy thing to do. My daughters grades have been steadily climbing since her first lesson and she actually looks forward to her tutoring sessions. Her confidence is growing as well. He also updates the parents and is honest with his assessment. First lesson he knew my daughter was capable of doing the work but just hated it. He ran with that and catered his lesson accordingly. We will be continuing our lessons with John.

Amazing tutor!! Grade improved

My grade improved an entire letter grade after one session, 100% worth it! Work with me patiently and still pushed me to think more critically. I’m so happy with the session! Will definitely have another session!

John is an amazing tutor. He builds confidence in students and very supportive. Always tries to accommodate the classes at requested times.Highly recommend him.

Vani, 15 lessons with John

Great teacher, explain the content very well!

John has helped my child understand all the concepts they had a hard time learning in class. He is patient and is willing to go over things again when my child doesn’t understand.

Sheryl, 15 lessons with John

WE LIKE JOHN!

There are tutors, and then there are tutors. Knowing the material is simply not enough for smart kids studying AP Physics, it has to be presented in an interesting and fun way, and John does exactly that!

Productive First Session

After one session with John, Alec felt he had significantly improved in his understanding of the concepts discussed. As for personality, Alec felt John was supportive and easy to work with. We immediately booked another session.

amazing tutor

John really helped me with physics this semester really helped me understand what my teacher could not!! He really went through all the topics and explained them so I could really understand what was going on!
