Physics Made Phun!
Physics Made Phun!
I am a physics teacher with 20 years of experience. I have worked in various settings in the past -- as a researcher at Columbia University, as an MCAT course developer at Stanley Kaplan, and as a teacher. I have taught everything from 7th grade general science, to physics, to astronomy, to AP physics. Physics is the kind of subject where you don't know what you really think, until you have heard what you've said. Having a physics buddy to talk over places where you struggle in the curriculum can be the difference between a slog through a frustrating course and a fun, challenging course where you feel good about your accomplishments in the end.
I am also happy to work with lower grades and look forward to working on something different from my usual -- math or elementary, say. I am the mother of three kids (one with special needs) who are working their way through the elementary curriculum and feel I have a good handle on most elementary science, math and reading.
Looking forward to helping students achieve their maximum in a fun and enjoyable way!

Reliable and patient
Emily worked with my daughter while she was at sleep away camp. As you can imagine, no kid wants to work on school work during camp but Emily was patient and thoughtful in working with her. I found her last minute as I needed a tutor in Wolfboro, NH (we live in NY). We were lucky to find her.Angela, 2 lessons with EmilyTutor responded:
Thanks so much for your kind words. I hope your daughter does well on her upcoming test.
If she can teach me, she can teach anyone.
Ms. J. is terrific! I went to her to learn Excel. This wasn't my first run at it, but this is the first time I was able to follow what we were doing. I'm technophobic and innumerate, and too often people attempting to teach me either move too fast or lose patience. Not so, Ms. J., a professional teacher who showed me why she's been in demand by some of the country's leading secondary schools. I'm a lawyer with degrees from four different universities, including Harvard, and I've encountered no better teaching. Ms. J. quickly adjusted to my pace, answered my questions without wincing, and we made enough progress in one session to make me eager for more. She's also pleasant company. After I knock off Excel, under her tutelage, I may even ask her to teach me physics, a subject I avoided like a social disease, all through school. Who knows--I may yet get a Nobel.Maynard, 2 lessons with Emily
