Ithaca College (Physics)
New York University (Graduate Coursework)
I have been teaching and tutoring physics regularly since the fall of 2007. While attending Ithaca College (Fall 2007-Spring 2010) I was employed by the physics department as a Teacher’s Assistant (TA) as well as a study group facilitator. As a TA I was assigned to answer questions during class and lab work as well as grade homework assignments. I also had the opportunity to give lectures when the professor was absent. As a study group facilitator I held office hours twice a week where students could come in and receive help on homework or any other question regarding their introductory physics class. From 2011-present I have been working part time as a physics and math tutor. I work with students from 9th grade to college on a very wide variety of physics and math topics.
I have had a passion for physics and math since I was very young and have been studying and or teaching it for about 8 years. I majored in general physics and graduated with a 3.9 GPA. I have tutored countless students on all the basic topics and fundamentals. Simply put, I love the subject and get enjoyment out of teaching it to others. This drives me to the best possible teacher I can be. My ultimate goal is to make learning physics and math fun and to get the student to not only understand it but to enjoy it as well.
Because I hold myself to a high standard and will not charge for a session unless the student and parent are 100% satisfied.
I am very flexible with time, travel, and rates.

My daughter is doing well with him. He is always on time and stays in touch if he can't make it.
Caren is acing her test now, thanks to her tutor.
Jordan is exceptionally knowledgeable about physics/ calculus and is adept at conveying that knowledge. He cares about the student’s understanding, this is much more than a silly job for him it is something he truly gets excited and zealous about the subject matter. He’s also great at showing me how to work through in depth problems and strategies for approaching the problems. He is able to see the methodological error or weakness in my approach while being very patient in order to break down my difficulties in a workable way for me. Simultaneously he challenges me to reach the next level and encourages me with praise. His years of experience as a classroom teacher translate beautifully to the one-on-one tutoring setting. It also makes a difference that Steven is unfailingly pleasant, positive, and remarkably enthusiastic about the material. I wish every teacher and tutor could have as much passion of their subject matter as Jordan. I most definitely would recommend Jordan as a tutor for any level of 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 earned a bachelor's degree in Physics with a Math minor from Ithaca College with a cumulative GPA of 3.9. I have also been Tutoring Physics for 8 years from middle school to college level.
