Bio

I'm a retired physics, chemistry and math teacher that taught over 34 years with the last 22 at Hinsdale South High School in Darien, Illinois. I have worked with all different age groups in high school teaching physics mostly and I taught summer school algebra I, algebra 2 and chemistry for over ten years at South.

I'm a retired physics, chemistry and math teacher that taught over 34 years with the last 22 at Hinsdale South High School in Darien, Illinois. I have worked with all different age groups in high school teaching physics mostly and I taught summer school algebra I, algebra 2 and chemistry for over ten years at South. I was a certified tutor in college working with veterans and college physics students and I have taught Physics , Chemistry and College Algebra for over twenty-five years for College of DuPage, Joliet Junior College and Carl Sandburg Junior College. Since I retired in June I have tutored about thirteen different students in algebra, college algebra, geometry, chemistry and physics.My youngest student has been a seventh grade prodigy and the oldest being a single mom going back to school for her nursing degree.

My wife and I are both now retired and have moved permanently to our dream land in the UP. I have decided to start tutoring again as I miss the student contact and the pride that comes from helping someone do something they could not do before.

Subjects

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Algebra is basically language. The key is learning what you can and cannot do and it's a very comfortable and fulfilling subject to teach.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is just taking algebra 1 and raising it to a bit higher level. All the answers are there and its fun to teach others how to get to them.
Chemistry,

Chemistry

Chemistry is the left and to physic's right hand. I enjoy it because it is the first science class that most people see with math included.
Geometry,

Geometry

I love geometry. If you look at the problems they are more like opportunities to show your skills and the more of them you do the easier they become.
Physics

Physics

Physics was not only my major but also my favorite subject. I really enjoy watching students understanding how it works, I guess you could call those "light bulb" moments.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry

An nice combination of geometry and algebra. A very useful skill to have for "real" life mathematics. A very appliable math for science and especially physics. Usually easy to teach and comprehend.

This is a combination of physics and chemistry but at a very elementary level. It is fun to teach since it has many different examples to choose from.

He really explained well to my son and my son was very happy with his teaching

The questions my son had about Physics topics were well explained and my son understood the concept very clearly. George had great knowledge and teaching skill in area that he teaches. Thank you George.

Edward, 2 lessons with George

Great teaching style and tons on knowledge

Very good on algebra concepts and was great match for our son!! Good pace and took the time to confirm concepts. Thought some new concepts that will be very helpful on the SAT.

Joseph, 3 lessons with George

Good at explaining and patient!

My son struggled in physics and was failing his class. We found George and he was great, he helped him understand physics by going back and reviewing the basics and at the same time helped him to stay on top of his lessons. My son ended up with a B in his class thanks to George!

Anna, 10 lessons with George

Awesome!!

George is awesome at tutoring college physics problems and how we arrive at an answer. His explanations are thorough and easy to understand. I would recommend him to anyone!!!

Brooke, 12 lessons with George

Jenny, 6 lessons with George

Mr. George was very patient and took his time with me. We got a lot accomplished in 1 hour.

He helped me to better understand many concepts in physics in one lesson. He is a great tutor and I definitely would recommend him to any of my friends that need help. I appreciate what he has done.

Vicki, 3 lessons with George

Kind, patient and knowledgable

George is teaching my daughter Alg 1, and I can not thank him enough. He's patient, kind and understanding. He knows not just the knowledge of the material but how to teach it and break it down.
