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 Teacher!

Joel, was great. Help me so much. He was very patient and knowledgeable. He was able to meet me at short notice

Genesis , 1 lesson with Joel

Very helpful

Joel was very knowledgeable and he helped me understand electron configuration, orbitals, and more. I feel more confident for my upcoming exam.

Janina, 3 lessons with Joel

Extremely knowledgable, fun and engaging

Joel is wonderful tutor. Just 2 hours together and a world of difference. He makes it fun and easy. We used him to supplement chemistry before a test and my daughter asked for ongoing sessions.

Suzanne, 3 lessons with Joel

Engaging and very knowledgeable tutor

Joel presented high school chemistry to my son in a very relatable way. It was not the dry material I learned. His many years of experience teaching clearly showed through. We will be hiring Joel regularly going forward.

Tony, 18 lessons with Joel

Excellent Teacher

Joel is an exceptional teacher. His analogies and technique are helping increase my son’s confidence. After lesson one my son said, “Mom he is great, I wish he was my teacher in school too”.

Janaris, 10 lessons with Joel

excellent tutor

Joel is helping my son Nicholas with Physics. Nicholas did not have a clue. It's a work in progress but Nicholas is now starting to come to life. Joel has tapped some enthusiasm in Nicholas and a desire to learn. This was non existent before Joel.

Nicholas, 13 lessons with Joel

Very Knowledgeable

Joel is a great tutor who knows the material very well. He was very helpful to my daughter in explaining to her the history behind chemistry. Extremely polite and easy to get a hold off.

Joel L. Is super knowledgeable And is able to convey concepts to me easily. Also very nice. Much easier to learn from than my teacher. Great tutor!

Kate, 12 lessons with Joel

Very knowledgeable and patient tutor. He made the lesson enjoyable for my son.

Joel reviewed HS Physics with my son. He was very thorough and patient, and of course knowledgeable. His instructions made Physics seem easy! We look forward to his again!
