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.

Knowledgeable and easy going tutor

Joel is helping me immensely with chem 2. I am doing well on my exams and labs. I recommend him to anyone who struggles with the sciences. He has a good sense of humor and makes learning material fun.

Chemistry

Nicholas enjoyed working with Joel. He was very patient and knowledgeable. He also made the process of learning fun for him.

Anthony , 3 lessons with Joel

Respectful, knowledgeable and patient tutor

On time, no chit-chat. Focuses on the material for the full time period. Very patient. Very knowledgeable for subject needed: HS honors chemistry. Materials included balancing equations, limiting reactants, nuclear chemistry, VSEPR, and dimensional analysis (i.e. unit conversion).

JOE, 13 lessons with Joel

Experienced and patient tutor

Joel is an extremely knowledgeable and experienced Chemistry tutor. He helped my 10th Grade son prepare for the SAT chemistry test. My son only had positive things to say about him.

Alexandra, 3 lessons with Joel

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”.
