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.

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, 6 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.

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!

Excellent Chemistry Tutor

As per my daughter Krista ....Joel explains Chemistry in a way she can actually understand it. She says he teaches it much better than her teachers in class. Thanks to Joel, Krista is actually enjoying General Chemistry in high school. No more Chemistry tears, all smiles. Thank you Joel

Knowledgable, Caring, and Patient

Joel is the best tutor I have ever had! He is patient, relates the material to real life which helps you to remember it, and shows genuine interest in helping his students learn the subject matter and succeed in their class. He goes above and beyond what other tutors are willing to do. He has helped me significantly with learning chemistry 2. 100% recommend!
