AP teacher of the year, loves teaching Physics and Math to everyone!

Methodology

One of the mantras I use in my classes over the last 30 years of teaching i"s Students should never say I can't but instead I DO"! You only learn from practice with real world type problems, identifying and learning from mistakes, not just from hearing me lecture. That said, when students are being introduced to material, I try to connect with things they already know and build and scaffold around those things to be able to access that knowledge when I am not around.

Background

I have taught hundreds of students from every type of background and age from urban, suburban, private and online over the past 30 years since graduating MIT in Physics. I specifically have taught AP courses and a great number have achieved perfect scores (5's).

Rates

Transportation Fee : $5
Rate for online lessons : $30/h

Details

If a student or the teacher has to cancel with less than 24 hours notice, the charge is $10- to be added to next class for the student, or subtracted from the charge of the next class for the teacher. If there is more than 24 hours notice, there is no charge on either side.
