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.

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. My second objective for students that I tutor, is for them to excel academically whether it be in high school or in college.

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.

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

Amazing Physics tutor

A real diamond of a tutor. It is very difficult to find someone like him. He is an amazing teacher who really broke down Physics in a way I can understand. Chose him because of the reviews and stars. Well deserved.

Amna , 1 lesson with John

Excellent tutor

Organizer, fast paced, wonderful tutor- you will be very happy with him. Easy to schedule with, easy to understand. Physics is conceptual and he makes it accessible online.

Iman, 6 lessons with John

Great lesson

We went over my physics and it was explained in an easy and lighthearted way. It has made physics bearable to learn and John makes it fun for me. A great teacher and great guy.

Dominic, 12 lessons with John

Knowledgeable and great feedback

Very caring person - super busy but tries to be there for the student. Knowledgeable, patient and provides great feedback after the tutoring. Highly recommend him for advanced physics.

Miwon, 24 lessons with John

Makes complex concepts easily understandable

A highly effective AP Physics tutor. Quickly identified blocking issues and taught concepts my child was struggling with in a way that made them easily understandable. Not only knows his stuff but -- more importantly -- is able to very effectively teach the material in a way that allows students to understand and retain it.

Denise, 13 lessons with John

Kind and Funny

My tutoring session with John was amazing. He was very attentive to what I needed to go further into as well as what I seemed to understand fairly quickly. He made sure to keep my energy high through jokes and funny scenarios for each question we did.

Nicole, 6 lessons with John

Amazing AP Physics tutor

John is helping my daughter really understand her AP Physics class. Class moves so quickly that the one on one time with John reinforcing all of the concepts has been so helpful. He explains things in a way that make a lot more sense to her than when she is in class. I highly recommend John!

Melissa, 24 lessons with John

Great mentor

John worked to understand my daughter's strengths and weaknesses, versus, just teaching her content. This allowed her to work through her problems and understand by doing versus seeing. Great job!

JOHN GOT MY SON TO ACE THE AP PHYSICS EXAM!!

John got my son to ACE the AP PHYSICS EXAM! John’s love of physics is contagious! What John teaches carries over into excelling in other classes! John is cool!!! John and my son worked together for several months, he became a part of our family. John is a great teacher, got my son over his anxiety and fear of physics and found a passion for it. John gave advice to improve his study habits and finding the best student within himself. This carried over into all his other classes. They also bonded over music. At the end of their sessions they’d share the guitar pieces they’d been working on and ask each other for input. I’m just sad that the class is over, but not to worry, a younger brother is coming along and we’ll have John back soon!!
