About Josh


Bio

I'm a graduate of Rutgers Graduate School of Education with a Masters degree in Science Education, and a major in physics, math/education minor, also from Rutgers. I've been tutoring privately and with various Rutgers organizations for the last 9 years, with over 300 satisfied students in all manner of subjects.

I'm a graduate of Rutgers Graduate School of Education with a Masters degree in Science Education, and a major in physics, math/education minor, also from Rutgers. I've been tutoring privately and with various Rutgers organizations for the last 9 years, with over 300 satisfied students in all manner of subjects.

My Masters degree gives me a very unique way to teach the subject of Physics, and in turn, math, by trying to look at the complex interlocking equations of Physics and explain them at their base, conceptual level.

It is my tried and tested belief that if a student can get a grasp on the concepts in Physics and Mathematics, most problems after will become an overall simpler calculating experience, making homework, tests, and even just looking at the world around you and understanding the patterns a fuller, correct, and more complete experience.

As such, I always try to include real world examples of difficult concepts, so that the student can see this difficult idea in action, and begin to form an idea of how it works. The single best result I've ever gotten from this type of tutoring was after teaching one of these concepts, having one of my students sit their parents down and explain to their parents the same concept. Watching knowledge be passed along from a student who started out a novice and had grown to this level of skill and understanding validated everything about why I tutor. I hope to get the chance to work with you and have that same kind of learning experience.

Subjects I am capable of teaching include: Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Calc AB, Calc 1, Physics (any high school course or introductory college course).

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 five 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.
Physics,

Physics

I've worked with over 100 students in all levels of Physics classes in private one on one sessions over the last 5 years. In addition, I was the TA (Teachers 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 is 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 over 75 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.

Outstanding tutor

Josh has been helping my son with AP Calculus and AP Physics for past few months. He was able to sustain my son's interest in the course materials and help him understand complex concepts. We are optimistic my son can reap the benefits of Josh's patient teaching not only in AP exams but also during college and career.

Raj, 36 lessons with Josh

Advanced Tutor - Relaxed & Knowledgeable

I really needed elementary level and Josh really took me through the different levels. Would love to work with Josh again.

Rachel, 1 lesson with Josh

Great lesson

In addition to teaching concepts, Josh always motivates my son. At one point in the lesson, he actually said "This is fun"! Refreshing change from the frustration he typically experiences with math.

Emily, 25 lessons with Josh

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Josh is tutoring my son in AP Physics. He knows the coursework extremely well and can explain it in a way that my son can understand. My son was really happy with the tutoring session and actually enjoyed learning about physics. My son also knows how grades will improve with Josh’s help.

Danielle, 20 lessons with Josh

Great College Calculus Tutor

Josh has been highly instrumental in my understanding of college math classes, especially in my most recent semester of calculus. His tutoring provided me with the structure and reliable support necessary for my grasping of concepts in calculus, something I otherwise struggled with. I find Josh to be a highly effective tutor primarily because he can present the material through diverse examples. Furthermore, Josh stressed the larger concepts at hand in order to help me make sense of my work and my answers. Overall, I would not have been as successful in calculus if it were not for Josh’s help. I look forward to tutoring with him in my future classes.

Ethan, 76 lessons with Josh

Knowledgeable tutor

My son felt comfortable with a josh. He helped him review for a quiz and went over all the material until he felt confident he knew the work. It worked... he got a 100 on his quiz!

Tami , 1 lesson with Josh

Helpful and knowledgeable tutor

I had a 1.5 hour session with Josh because I wanted extra help in understanding AP Physics and preparing for the AP exam. We reviewed some difficult problems and I think I have finally mastered certain concepts. He gave helpful strategies/tips for problem solving and pointed out important things in the lesson that my regular AP Physics teacher failed to address in class. He also introduced to me the structure and concept of the AP Physics C Exam and began to instruct me on how to approach studying for it later on. Additionally, he seems to have a very thorough understanding of the exam itself as well as the various review books published for it. Overall the lesson was good and I look forward to taking my AP Physics course more.

Lalaine, 25 lessons with Josh

First Lesson

Our first lesson focused on 2D kinematics and clarified much of what I was struggling with. Josh has an interesting teaching style and I look forward to more lessons from him.

Connie, 7 lessons with Josh

Excellent physics tutor

Josh was a physics tutor for my daughter.He was great! He was very knowledgeable and explained things well. My daughter found him very easy to talk to. I would recommend him to anyone! He has really helped her get through the class.
