About Jerry

My name is Jerry and I've been tutoring all levels of HS and college Math and Physics for the past 7 years. I enjoy helping students, and my students like the way I explain hard to understand concepts in Math and Physics. I believe in a "simplistic" approach to teaching Math and Physics. I strive to teach Math and Physics without a lot of theoretical jargon and I teach a methodical approach to solving problems.

While at the University of Arizona, I majored in Nuclear Engineering; 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 Sr. 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 score high marks 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 and Chemistry. 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.com site and let's get started. With me as your tutor, you will achieve the grades you want.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Differential Equations

I have a BS and MS in Physics and have solved ordinary differential equations many times during my past work experience. Much of my course work dealt with Partial Differential Equations such as Laplaces Equation and the Schroenger Wave Equation.

Incredible & Dedicated Tutor

Jerry took on the challenge of helping me in a college summer course of Calculus 3. He and I met several times a week to review quizzes, tests, homework and clear up any questions. A great quality of Jerry's is that he is always accessible; if I had a question, he would answer by text or send me PDF files of worked out problems. He spent many hours helping me understand the step-by-step problems.
