About Joel


Bio

I taught AP Chemistry, Regents Chemistry, Physics and Biology for over 30 years at a High School in Queens, New York. I have tutored high school and college level Chemistry, Physics and Biology for over 30 years, too. I emphasize mathematical methods, when applicable, estimation, and emphasis on units, using the factor labeling method of unit conversion. When I end a tutoring session, my main goal is to make sure my student has mastered and is comfortable with the material of the lesson. ...

I taught AP Chemistry, Regents Chemistry, Physics and Biology for over 30 years at a High School in Queens, New York. I have tutored high school and college level Chemistry, Physics and Biology for over 30 years, too. I emphasize mathematical methods, when applicable, estimation, and emphasis on units, using the factor labeling method of unit conversion. When I end a tutoring session, my main goal is to make sure my student has mastered and is comfortable with the material of the lesson. I encourage questioning. You can ask the same question many times. Most students cannot learn everything on the first try. I believe that the student is the most important person in the student-teacher interaction and, thus, his or her needs come first.

Great Tutor

He helped me review bonds and compounds homework problems. He’s a great tutor and very helpful. Has a lot of patience and doesn’t mind going over explanations and repeating himself when needed or requested.

Alena, 7 lessons with Joel

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Joel has done a very good job of helping my daughter better understand Chemistry and her grades are much better as a result. I highly recommend him as a chemistry tutor

Alan, 10 lessons with Joel

Knowledgeable, patient and efficient.

Joel helped our son work through stoichiometry in preparation for a high school chem exam. Joel helped tremendously through explanation and working through sample problems with our son. As a result, our son's knowledge base on the subject matter and self confidence increased greatly. We would highly recommend this tutor.

Jodi, 4 lessons with Joel

Excellent tutor

My son needed help before he took his physics test. Joel explained the concepts in a way that he could understand. He was very knowledgeable about the subject. My son commented today that he is doing better in his class already!

Rachel, 2 lessons with Joel

Joel has done a very good job of helping my daughter better understand Chemistry and her grades are much better as a result. I highly recommend him as a chemistry tutor

Alan, 10 lessons with Joel

Engaging tutor

He covered the material efficiently. He explained things in a way that helped me make sense of a complex topic and had a great personality which made spending an hour on thermochemistry more fun.

Alena, 15 lessons with Joel

SAT Chemistry Prep

Joel helped my daughter greatly. He has challenged her and answered all her questions. He is knowledgeable and patient. I would highly recommend him and will continue to use him in the future.

Lisa, 15 lessons with Joel

Excellent, experienced teacher

Excellent, experienced teacher...knew everything my son had questions about and exactly how to teach so that he would get it right away - as a bonus, used humor to make the lesson fun and keep it engaging. Checked in with me at the end to give me a rundown of what they had worked on, and what my son should practice. Just lovely all around, will definitely work with Joel again

Leah , 1 lesson with Joel

Very knowledgeable and explains well

Our son was working with Joel through the chemistry high-school last year and he was very confident that he understood the material better, having it explained in a better and different way to his teacher.
