Physics and Math Tutoring
Physics and Math Tutoring
I am an award winning teacher with high standards. I have taught physics at UT Austin, SMU and in Germany. I have been a scientist at a national lab and a professor of physics. At UT Austin, I was honored with the Outstanding Physics Teaching Assistant Award. I was told my student teaching evaluations were "head and shoulders above everyone else's."
I have been tutoring and teaching physics since 1971. I ask questions of the student to help identify the main issues. When possible I ask students to work out a problem ahead of time, as best they can, so I can review it. I have found that students often do not do well when they are being watched by a teacher and this approach provides me with the data to quickly diagnose the problem areas.
The approach to solving problems in physics is largely the same, no matter what the nature of the topic. I have seen virtually every kind of mistake students can make and I am able to quickly diagnose the root causes of the student's difficulties and create a plan to rapidly improve student understanding and performance. Because of the similarity of the problem solving techniques, helping a student solve a problem in mechanics,for example, automatically helps them solve problems in another area such as electric circuits.
I have often been told that I help students "until they have been helped."

Patient and dedicated.
Georges was an amazing tutor for our son in his junior year of high school. They primarily worked on physics but also did precalculus on a few occasions. Georges was thorough, patient, and extremely accommodating as far as scheduling. He went above and beyond to meet our son's needs. We would highly recommend him.Ann, 18 lessons with Georges
We are very pleased with how our son is progressing in Physics and with Georges. We are extremely happy. Thank You.Karen, 15 lessons with Georges
George spent a tremendous amount of time working with my daughter to identify where she was in physics and to identify where she needed help. He was very patient and offered excellent feedback and suggestions on areas she needs to focus on. We are very impressed with the quality of service provided.Lisa, 1 lesson with Georges
My daughter was taking senior AP Physics in the PISD. She was struggling and losing her desire to do well in Physics. She excelled in Physics her junior year. After her telling me that she believed her teacher did not understand AP Physics much better than the students in her class, we looked into getting her a tutor. It was certainly the right thing for her. Georges, in two lessons, had her understanding Physics better than months of instruction from her teacher. He also provided extra instructional material via email.Robert, 2 lessons with Georges
An ideal tutor for your child
I have great respect for Mr. Georges J. He has a PHD in Physics, extensive teaching experiences, and dealing with students. My son is so pleased with Mr. George's lessons. For the last few months with George, my son has built confidence and enjoyed learning Physics. He is no longer fearful of Physics, but rather as a challenge and interesting subject. Also, Mr. George is a caring person and want to help his students to be success. He gives my son valuable advice here and there about college, peer pressures etc... He makes the kid think. I deeply appreciate his efforts to go the extra mile. I greatly recommend George for those parents who are looking for a tutor. Definitely, Mr. Georges J is the one!Maria, 42 lessons with Georges
best calculus tutor
we are so blessed to have met mr g.he is the total package- very caring, passionate about his work, very understanding of the circumstances.we couldn't ask for a better tutor.he makes himself available even after tutoring hours if the student has any questions and responds back as soon as he can.thank you wyzant to have tutors like him that makes all the difference.Jean, 5 lessons with Georges
Great Physics Tutor
Georges was fabulous. Very knowledgeable and calming. He was able to build my daughter's self confidence and give her test taking strategies as well as help her understand physics.Cathy, 5 lessons with Georges
