About Jacob

I have been tutoring both high school and college students in physics for three years. My tutoring experience began as the President of the local chapter of the Society of Physics Students. In this position, my fellow students and I offered our physics knowledge to the West Chester University students enrolled in the conceptual, algebra based, and calculus based physics classes. Since then, I have been offering my services to local high school and college students whom need some help reaching their potential in physics.

As a graduate of West Chester Universities Secondary Physics Education program, I use my knowledge of research based teaching practices to help students master the physics content. Additionally, I understand that physics is not easy as it is non-intuitive, and therefore requires the development of new ways of thinking. Understanding this, I attempt to help each student to embrace this aspect of physics, while approaching each student with patience and compassion. Furthermore, I make an effort to identify what each student needs as individuals in order to become successful in physics.

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.

Physical Science

Being a Physicist, I have a solid foundation in physical science. Physical science is a combination of physics, chemistry and earth/space science. Throughout my education, I have had to study all three subjects. Furthermore, physics is the underlying science behind chemistry and earth/space science.

Physics

I have received my teacher certification in Pennsylvania in Physics for grades 7-12 through West Chester University. I have helped many high school and college students over the last three years to master physics by becoming better at math, becoming more confident in understanding the concepts, and by improving analytic skills, problem solving skills, and study skills.

Jacob is an awesome Tutor! The best I have had. — Jacob taught me Physics. I had to take a four week course in Physics with Calculus at Villanova University. I was in the wrong class for the first two weeks so I only had 2 weeks to complete the class. Jacob gave me so much time in the two weeks and was a great teacher. With his help, I was able to finish the class. I could not have done it without his patience and his time and his tutoring s ...
