## One of the best physics teachers

Sandy, 41 lessons with JoshWorking with Josh made Physics turn from seeming insurmountable to a subject that I enjoyed learning about and practicing. He was always very patient, approachable, and he knew when I would have the skills necessary to solve a problem on my own and when I would need his input, using examples and asking questions to help me figure out what the next step needed to be. I can't thank him enough for his help in Physics Honors and AP Physics C. He helped me learn the importance of divergent...

I'm a graduate of Rutgers Graduate School of Education with a Master's degree in Science Education, with an undergrad degree in Physics (Math/Education double minor). I've recently finished an undergrad degree in Computer Science, and am evaluating career paths involving the intersection of Computer Science and learning. I've been tutoring privately, with various Rutgers organizations, and with a range of tutoring companies since 2010, with many satisfied students in all manner of...

Algebra 1,
#### Algebra 1

With students ranging from 7th grade to college seniors and beyond, I have taught a large number of memory tricks and problem solving techniques for how to deal with numbers and their properties. Focus has been on seeing patterns in numbers/variables so that simplification can be made into a easy task, and what facts are required to be memorized so that future problems can be seen in different, less confusing ways.

Algebra 2,
#### Algebra 2

Over the course of ten years, I have developed a number of tips, tricks, and methods to help understand and implement the various skills required in Algebra 2 courses. These methods have been successful with students ranging from 7th graders to college seniors and beyond.

Calculus,
#### Calculus

Through my education in Physics, I have become very familiar with calculus, since it is the language Physics was written in. Going through the mechanical aspect of Calculus, with an eye toward applications of seemingly theoretical constructs, has helped many of my students not only understand the how of Calculus, but also the why.

Geometry,
#### Geometry

Through my Physics studies, I have developed a keen understanding of how shapes and pictures influence learning. I try to show how each line of a shape is just one part of the whole, and develop a view of geometry that will be very helpful in future math/science endeavors.

Physics,
#### Physics

I've worked with students in all levels of Physics classes in private one-on-one sessions over the last decade. In addition, I was the TA (teacher's assistant, ran the recitations and lab work for the professor) for 3 semesters of a college-level Physics class focused on new ways to teach and get students excited about Physics. These private sessions and in-class experiences have given me an innovative concept-based style to encourage understanding in both a mathematical and global context which I have found are very effective at helping students understand Physics.

Prealgebra,
#### Prealgebra

I have guided many incoming freshmen to Rutgers through the basics of equations, numbers, variables, exponents, so that when they take more math classes later, they have the firm grasp and understanding they need to prosper.

Precalculus,
#### Precalculus

Working with students in both high school and college, I have helped numerous students understand the ins and outs of pre-calc, with effective tips and methods for understanding and retention. An additional focus on how the actual tools in Pre-Calc will help the student prep for a real calculus class can also be helpful to some students who are planning on continuing in math past pre-calc.

SAT Math
#### SAT Math

I was a Kaplan SAT Prep teacher for two years, so in addition to my approach to general mathematics concepts gained from my educational background, I have a number of test specific tips and tricks to help students get the highest score possible with the least amount of stress

Trigonometry
#### Trigonometry

Through a varied instructional technique that allows for the proper viewing of the relationships of triangles to the real world, I try to make a student see how sides of any figure all follow the same basic rules. I've taught trig techniques and tricks to almost every math/physics student I've met, given the prevalence of triangles in vectors, both in mathematics and Physics.

## Very knowledgeable

Josh helped my son understand what he needed to know for his college calculus course for computer science. He was ver instrumental in assessing what my son needed in order to succeed.

Dawn Marie, 3 lessons with Josh

## awesome tutor

Definitely my favorite tutor on this app, super patient and effective in teaching concepts about physics and not just doing the work in front of me.

Isabel, 2 lessons with Josh

## Thoughtful and knowledgeable tutor

Josh was very personable and helpful during our tutoring lessons. The process of meeting with a tutor can be daunting and intimidating; however, Josh made math relatable and did not make me feel self-conscious. He really knows his stuff- happy I made the decision to book him.

Elizabeth, 2 lessons with Josh

## Knowledgeable and patient

My son has been having a hard time with pr precalculus this semester virtually. Josh was able to determine what he'd learned wrong and set him on the right footing as he heads into finals. Will definitely book again

Charle, 4 lessons with Josh

## Knowledgeable and instructive

Josh was helpful and supportive with my son's instruction today. He is going to be reteaching Material not previously mastered and reviewing current material. Many thanks.

Beth, 11 lessons with Josh

## Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Josh reviewed how springs work in conjunction with the conservation of energy, and the use of Newton's second law in oscillatory and gravitational problems. He is illuminating the fundamentals of physics for my son.

## Knowledgeable and fun

My son is doing AP Physics and needed some help. I found Josh and my son agreed to try - he had a different tutor for Math before and did not like the experience so I wasn’t sure how it would be this time. I was happy when he told me he liked Josh. He says Josh is very knowledgeable, charismatic and extremely helpful with what he was struggling with. We highly recommend Josh!
