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. ...
