Having tutored or taught math and physics for over 10 years I have gained ample experience in helping students at both the high school and university levels learn to grasp these rather difficult subjects.
I earned my Bachelors in physics with a Minor Certificate in mathematics from Georgia Tech, graduating with Highest Honors. While at Tech I was involved in an on-campus tutoring program where I helped students one-on-one in a variety of math classes including calculus, pre-calculus, college algebra, differential equations, linear algebra, and probability and statistics, as well as a full range of physics courses from introductory mechanics to electricity and magnetism to quantum mechanics. In addition to tutoring I have also been involved in scientific research, with a publication in 'Physical Review E'.
I completed a Masters in physics at Cornell University where I worked as a Teaching Assistant, running discussion sections and labs. I also continued to tutor students privately throughout this time. I currently work as a data scientist, and am also pursuing a second Masters degree in data science at Columbia University.
I find it enjoyable and rewarding to teach this material, and by working through many example problems together, I believe that I am able to make these subjects comprehensible and enjoyable for many students as well.

Excellent tutor and brilliant physicist. Very capable in all areas of higher math, general physics and special ares such as quantum theory and relativity.
John helped my daughter with Advance Mathematical Decision. When her session ended she told "John is a great tutor" can you schedule more sessions with him.
My son started the semester without a clue about physics, least to say AP physics. John was able to help him in every step and prepare for his tests. My son received the honor award of the AP physics student of the year. A great improvement in such a short time. Thank you very much!
John has been very helpful tutoring my children with physics and honors geometry. He is very patient and explains concepts in terms that my children can understand. Both of my children, 11th grader and 9th grader, have both said that John definitely has been a big help to them.
John has really helped my daughter with her advanced IB physics class. He understands the course materials and worked with her on formulas.
John has always been on time and we highly recommend his services.
He failed to show, and failed to call or email until over 12 hours after the appointment citing a family emergency. I setup another meeting that he confirmed, and again he failed to show. I have yet to receive a response or reason.
John has been very flexible, which we've greatly appreciated. He's also a young guy--though perfectly qualified--and this helps, I think, when working with a secondary student.
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.
I have taken both ordinary and partial differential equations in college (with grades of A) and have used these subjects in research.
I have taken multiple linear algebra classes in college and graduate school and have used this knowledge while performing research.
