Hi, my name is Jeff. I have a PhD in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Illinois and I have experience tutoring a variety of STEM subjects at the high school and college level.

For physics, I tutor both high school and college students in conceptual, algebra and calculus based physics 1 and 2 courses as well as AP physics 1 and 2.

I also tutor a variety of subjects in mechanical and aerospace engineering including statics, dynamics, mechanics of materials, fluid mechanics and aerodynamics.

I enjoy one-on-one tutoring because it allows me to tailor my approach to the individual student’s needs. When working on a certain problem I begin by asking the student how they would proceed in order to gauge their current understanding. This allows me to identify areas where they struggle; whether it be conceptual understanding, difficultly with mathematics, or development of problem solving strategies. My goal is not to simply provide students with the answers but rather to guide them to a level of understanding where they can solve problems on their own. If the student doesn’t need me anymore then I have done my job!

In addition to my tutoring experience I have nine years of research experience which involved collaborations with organizations including NASA, Boeing, and the FAA. I am passionate about getting students interested in and excited about STEM fields and I draw upon my engineering experience to relate topics to real world problems.

If you need help with homework, test preparation (including AP tests) or just want to get ahead in your class please feel free to contact me.

Great Waves tutor

We went through the basics of waves, how they function, formulas, and conceptual trivia. I feel more confident on my understanding of waves.

Steven, 17 lessons with Jeff

An extremely knowledgeable and friendly Physics tutor

My son said Jeff was a great Physics tutor and he made the complex topic seem very simple. Jeff was also able to help us out at very short notice, which we greatly appreciated. My son said he would definitely take a class with Jeff again if he ever needs any additional Physics help in the future.

Fiona, 2 lessons with Jeff

Knowledgeable and well prepared for the session

Jeff taught derivatives in calculus. He understood the student challenges and addressed them very effectively. His practice problems were on spot and additionally he gave links to practice further. Will have more lessons scheduled soon.

Anjana, 1 lesson with Jeff

Knowledgeable and skilled tutor. Puts student at ease with material.

Jeff adjusted the pace of the lesson to best address my daughter's comprehension. My daughter was extremely comfortable and pleased with Jeff's approach to the material. He was a great help.

Cathy, 14 lessons with Jeff

Excellent tutor

Physics was today’s lesson. I will definitely schedule more sessions with Jeff for Mubarak daughter’s physics class. THANK YOU, JEFF!! You are simply excellent of what you teach.

Mahmuda , 6 lessons with Jeff

Very Knowledgeable about Physics 1 w/ Calculus

In my first session Jeff has already given me a better foundation in Physics than my college professor ever has, I am very much looking forward to more sessions!

Noah, 6 lessons with Jeff

Knowledgeable and VERY patient

Jeff was able to work patiently with my son, despite his different ability and needs. My son is autistic and need frequent breaks. Jeff was able to work with him with ease. We will continue to use him as a tutor.

Winell, 2 lessons with Jeff

Knowledgeable and helpful tutor

Jeff really helped my son, who transferred into honors physics 3 weeks into term. He had a great way of explaining material that made my son feel confident about making up a large amount of work within and hour. I would recommend him!
