About Brett

Hi There! -- There's a lot of these postings, so I'll keep this as brief as possible! I have done a lot of things in my life, but I am most proud of my teaching award I received an Outstanding Teaching Award at NYU for my work in Pre-Med Physics. I strongly believe in talking through problems rather than simply lecturing, as Physics is a very intuitive subject and believe it or not, you already understand most of it!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Physics

I hold multiple technical degrees in Physics, Mechanical Engineering, and Nuclear Engineering. I previously taught General Physics recitations at New York University from 2005-2006, and received an outstanding teaching award. Prior to teaching recitations for General Physics I was a tutor for Physics I and II for physics majors. I have tutored Physics in my spare time over the past few years.

Very helpful!

Brett was very patient in helping me understand the basics of Physics. His tutoring made understanding homework problems much easier and I could actually visualize what was occurring. I am sure I will be in need of his assistance again. Our meeting made me wish I could bottle his endless knowledge in physics and keep it for myself. I am really thankful for his tutoring.
