Physics, Bio, Chem, SAT Suite, ACT All Subjects: Academic and Standardized Test Prep

Methodology

I hold an MS in Physics, a BA in Biology, a BS in Physics and a Master of Advanced Study in Peace Studies and Conflict Resolution

I've completed an A.A. in Music: Classical Guitar and Composition

I was trained in standardized test preparation by one of the nation's leading test prep companies!

Background

I have taught Physics at the college level for over a decade.
I have taught standardized test preparationfor 12 years for subject tests in the natural sciences and mathematics (SAT/AP) as well as the English Reading and Writing sections for the SAT and ACT (5 years in home and 7 years online) privately and for one of the nations leading test prep centers.

I have worked with hundreds of students teaching them, with great success (in some cases raising scores over 300 points), about how to identify their conceptual and procedural strengths and weakness within the structure, content and scoring of standardized exams; additionally, I can present the difficult concepts of physics, chemistry and biology in a simplistic and tangible way that makes the math a lot easier to deal with.

In the natural sciences my master's research was centered on the biophysics and structure of sickle cell anemia as well as the properties of nerve fiber conduction based on the Lillie Iron Wire (#20 piano wire in Nitric Acid) Experiment.

In the field of peace studies my research and thesis were focused on how the arts are used as a means of conflict transformation.

Adam's resume

I hold a Masters in physics from Drexel University. My research was in the structure and function of Sickle Cell Anemia. I hold a BA in Biology and a BS in Physics from SUNY New Paltz. I also hold a Master's Peace Studies and Conflict Transformation.

The essence of my lessons has to do with understanding the structure, scoring and content of an exam. We know test taking, whether standardized or academic, is more than just knowing the subject matter. Thus, developing a strategy for test taking (or completing assignments) is the foundation of my teaching approach.

I've been teaching and tutoring physics biology and chemistry for 20 years and standardized test strategies for 13 years.
