About Joe

Hello! You must be looking at this because you find Physics very challenging. I'd love to help! I have taught various levels of physics to public school students, private school students, homeschoolers and college students for 23 years. For ACT test prep, I've tutored students who have received scores in the 30+ range in math and science. My specialty, though, is advanced high school and introductory college physics (both algebra and calculus-based). I currently teach honors physics and AP Mechanics C to juniors and seniors in a large suburban high school district. I have also been overseeing the math development of my four home-schooled children from basic math through pre-calculus. Allow me the opportunity to help you see that physics is not only understandable, but that physics is Phun! Hello! You must be looking at this because you find Physics very challenging.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT Math

I have taught ACT Math prep for many years, helping several students earn scores in the 30's. I have a systematic process I use to help students acquire ACT Math skills. I often make personal screencasts for students so that they can watch and review concepts as often as they wish.

Algebra 1

Though I have a Master's degree in Physics, my qualifications in Algebra include: (1) homeschooling my eldest son in algebra through Pre-Calculus, as well as in ACT math, (2) working as an instructional coach for math and science teachers in a large suburban high school district, and (3) over 20 years of working with honors and AP-level Physics students, who consistently utilize Algebra and Trigonometry concepts.

Amazing teacher!

After just one lesson with Joe my daughter has a much clearer understanding of her AP physics class. She was really excited with how much she learned and accomplished in just one hour. Looking forward to her next session!
