For ACT test prep, I've tutored students who have received scores in the 30+ range in math and science.

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!

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.

Great Teacher and Communicator

Joe is an excellent tutor. His experience as a professional teacher allows him to have a great ability to communicate concepts to my high school son and anyone else he tutors. My son sometimes will have trouble focusing for long periods of time. However, he can easily go the full hour and often much longer with complete focus and learning ability when working with Joe. Very likable and professional, Joe is an excellent choice if you’re looking for a tutor that likes what he does and is good at it.

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!

Kim, 5 lessons with Joe

Great discipline

We are relieved that AVIK is following a structured and disciplined approach to Physics set by an experienced professional. Thanks to Joe.

Rupa, 26 lessons with Joe

very good instructor

Having registered 3hrs tutoring with Joe through facetime. He gave my son a comprehensive summary on AP physics previewing. He explained the concept in his own way which helped my son with better understanding.

Cynthia, 3 lessons with Joe

Great tutor

Joe was very quick to respond to our inquiry and was able to get us set up with a time slot quickly. He is super friendly and easy to work with and has flexible hours. My 17 year-old son said Joe was very patient and knowledgeable and he really enjoys working with Joe. He was able to help my son understand the concepts he was struggling with.

Excellent

Excellent tutor, helped me understand lots of concepts that I never have before and prepared me for the test more than I ever could have alone. We covered a ton of material over the span of about a month, and I feel so much better going into the test than I did before.

Would be lost without him

I came to Mr. K. in need of a physics tutor because my own teacher was not the greatest. Mr. K. was my tutor for almost a semester which should speak about his tutoring abilities highly. He was easy to ask questions and was extremely patient when I was exceptionally lost. Without a doubt, he saved my AP Physics 1+2 grade.

Honors Physics tutor

Joe is an exceptional teacher & tutor. We are so thankful to have found such a wonderful fit for our son. Joe is extremely thorough in his approach, challenging my son in each & every concept. He explains things in ways that are easy to understand, using lots of visual aids. Joe makes sure that my son has a complete understanding, welcoming any & all questions. My son wishes we found Joe sooner & looks forward to working with him throughout the remainder of the school year. Would highly recommend Joe....he really knows his stuff!!

Covered a lot of Physics concepts

My daughter was reluctant to meet with a tutor because she wasn't sure what she would ask. Joe took the lead and reviewed a lot of material in the first session. My daughter left with a much better understanding of the concepts and pages of notes to which she could later refer.

Lilan, 4 lessons with Joe

Very Helpful Tutor!

Joe was extremely helpful and patient in tutoring me in Physics! He took his time in explaining the problems and making sure that I understood them. I will definitely use his services again!
