About Randy


Bio

I am a High School Physics teacher, currently teaching AP Physics 1 & 2. In previous school years I have taught Mathematics (remedial to advanced, pre-algebra to calculus) and Computer classes specializing in Microsoft Office, Visual Basic, Java, and HTML.

My students perform at or above state and national averages on the AP Physics exam. I had the 3rd highest pass rate of any physics teacher in the state of Georgia for the 2015-16 AP Physics 1 exam.

In addition, I am a reader (i.e.,...

My students perform at or above state and national averages on the AP Physics exam. I had the 3rd highest pass rate of any physics teacher in the state of Georgia for the 2015-16 AP Physics 1 exam.

In addition, I am a reader (i.e., grader) of the AP Physics Exam.

I teach as a passion. I'm glad I get paid (I have two children attending college), but the real motivation is moving just one student from confusion to clarity.

Microsoft Excel

I love Excel. It is powerful, flexible, and beautiful. It will do so much more than add a column of figures. If you struggle with formatting a cell, I can help you make Excel do what you want it to do. If you just can't figure out how to make the formula work, I can help you make Excel do what you want it to do. If you need to automate a process and can't seem to figure out VBA, I can help you make Excel do what you want it to do. If you understand Excel everyone in the office will think you are the smartest person they ever met. Call on me for all your Excel needs.

A New Way to look at things

I am a senior in high school and my teacher uses long equations to solve AP physics problems. In one tutor session, Randy taught me a different and easier way to think about my problems that changed my hard algebraic equations into numbers I could solve in my head. Thank you!!

Eager to teach and Nice

He is very eager to teach and willing to explain concepts in alternate ways in order for you to understand. He will let you think through problems on your own and makes the lessons fun. My daughter was struggling with Physics 1 and he was able to get her back on track. She was able to pull her grade up to an A! Excellent teacher!

Fantastic, Dedicated, Engaging Physics Tutor.

I started taking lessons with Randy early on in the school year for AP Physics 1, and immediately found him to be a very reliable, patient, helpful tutor. He knows the content so well and is great about applying it to real-world scenarios whenever he can, making physics very learnable for students. When I struggled to understand a concept, he'd approach it from multiple angles and use a variety of examples to supplement his explanations. I never felt foolish regardless of how many times I asked him to re-explain something because he was always happy to present it in a different way until it made sense. Randy is a very funny, kind, dedicated, and engaging tutor whose goal is to help you understand physics -- not memorize rules and formulas. I feel very fortunate to have found Randy on Wyzant this year and would highly recommend him to any physics student.

great first lesson

Very clear first session with plenty of real life examples to clarify the topics. Looking forward to the next session.

Highly Recommend, knowledgeable, great teacher, sense of humor

Who can actually make high school Physics fun? Okay, that's my bias, but it was so great to have my son, a Junior in high school, come to me after a tutor session with Randy and tell me that it was funny and helpful at the same time. Randy really helped my son out who was in a jam for a test the next day--Randy went out of his way (and late into the night) to fit my son in. Right on point with the lesson, and very helpful.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Randy has done two AP Physics 1 lessons with my son. We have tried many tutors and none of them were able to help my student until we found Randy. My student is finally getting Physics concepts in a way that he can apply them to problems.

Smart guy; great teacher!

My son was having trouble with certain circuit analysis problems, so I thought I'd try Wyzant to get tutoring help. Randy was able to meet with us on short notice and he had a deep understanding of the topic, and was able to assess where my son was at in this area and break through the points of confusion. He is an experienced teacher so he can skillfully find the gaps! Thanks, Randy!
