About Jerry


Bio

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.

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.

Goes above and beyond

Jerry went above and beyond with his help to ensure I succeeded in my Math for Economists course. The course was a mix of advanced calculus principles, some which were a bit different than what Jerry had experience with. He spent the time to make sure he understood the economic approach to the problems and then showed me how to do the problems. He makes himself available to his students between tutoring sessions as well. I would definitely recommend him as a tutor.

Erica, 10 lessons with Jerry

Understanding and patient

Jerry met with my son for the first time. Worked well with my son on Physics concepts. Very knowledgeable of topic. My son felt comfortable with him. We will be using him in the future for tutoring needs.

Trish, 9 lessons with Jerry

Fabulous!

Jerry really has helped me think in a different way, and has caused me to approach physics problems differently and more successfully. With just 2 sessions I feel much more confident in how to work a problem out to find the correct solution.

Kathryn, 2 lessons with Jerry

Great tutor

My son just had the first tutor class, and we really like him. He understood Student's need, encourage him to love to learn, and provide all his best .He is a great tutor AS

Great Algebra 2 tutor

Jerry was Knowledgeable, professional and patient. He explained each math step in vivid detail giving me a better understanding of the substitution method. I actually feel like there’s hope. He is approachable when asking questions and genuinely interested in helping you. Jerry’s amazing! I give him 5 stars! Hands down.

Algebra II

Jerry spent a significant amount of time helping my daughter with Algebra II problems; he is patient, and highly knowledgeable. My daughter is now able to correctly complete problems on her own. Thanks Jerry!

AP physics

Jerry was very knowledgeable and helpful with the new ideas. He tutored my daughter in AP physics. He was super devoted, honest and kind. I will definitely continue to use Jerry's expertise in the future. We are planning on having him for SAT and AC T math studying.

Laurie , 4 lessons with Jerry

Knowledgeable

Jerry is patient and cares about his students. He makes sure that the students understand the lessons that he is teaching. If they do not understand he will go over it again and again. Great tutor great listener.
