My name is Jerry and I've been tutoring all levels of HS and college Math and Physics for the past 5 years. I enjoy helping students, and my students really like the way I explain hard to understand concepts in Math and Physics. You might say that I believe in a "simplistic" approach to teaching Math and Physics. I strive to teach Math and Physics in a straightforward manner. I teach a methodical approach to solving problems.
While at the University of Arizona, I majored in Physics and I have a BS in Nuclear Physics and a MS degree in Nuclear Engineering. For 20 years I worked at a Nuclear Weapons factory as a Senior Nuclear Safety Engineer. I was responsible for keeping the operators safe while they handled fissionable nuclear materials. I worked with the operators and educated them on the hazards of handling nuclear materials that were the primary component of nuclear weapons. I moved to Las Vegas in July 2002 to work on the Yucca Mountain Project and then transferred to the Nevada Test Site where the US detonated nuclear weapons during the 1950's, 1960's and 1970's.
In 2010 I decided to retire from my engineering profession and do what I enjoy the most; help students and tutor. I enjoy making a difference in a students curriculum and being a part of a students progress. We will do several problems, because that is the way I believe, a student will remember the material well enough to do well on his or her exam. I work with primarily high school and college students in subjects such as AP Physics, AP Calculus, Precalculus, Trigonometry, Geometry and Algebra. I believe that one of my best assets is how well I relate to my students and my ability to teach difficult topics. I teach with a style that I would want in a tutor if I was being tutored in Math or Physics. Send me an email on the Wyzant site and lets get started.

Jerry invests a great deal of time and resources to ensure my son is receiving the help he needs. Thanks Jerry!
Jerry asks students what they are currently studying in their class. He makes every effort to help students become more successful in their classes.
Really help on what's your weakness and strength. Goes step by steps on my studying. Really nice and I recommend him! :)
Has the patience of a saint.
Great teaching methodology.
Assists with tough math problems, in a way that
it makes sense.
My son raved about Jerry! Jerry was very patient with Connor and for the first time in this chapter of honors geometry, Connor was comprehending the work. Looking forward to the next session on Tuesday at 3:30 to 4:30.
My son has a difficult time sitting down to do homework, and Jerry is patient and understanding. He helps my son get his work done.
Math has never been my friend, but Jerry teaches ways to break it down into easy steps! Thank you Jerry.
Jerry is a great tutor and has helped my son tremendously. My son has been working with Jerry for two weeks and his grade in Algebra 2 has gone from a 28% to a 74% in just two weeks! Jerry is patient and always checks to make sure my son understands the work before moving forward. Thanks, Jerry!
Thank, Mr. Jerry, for working with my son. I have seen him gain more confidence in his math work. Looking forward to working to work with you over the summer and next school year. Thanks!
Jerry has been helping my son with algebra 1 and I allowed my son to make the decision on whether he wanted to continue with the tutor I selected. Well, they established a good relationship and understanding early on, so we have used Jerry exclusively throughout.
Jerry seems to be very patient and conveys the needed information simple way so it can be easily understood by the student. My has improved his grade in and understanding of algebra and we will continue to use Jerry's services as we move forward. Looks like we made a very good choice in Jerry.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
