PRIVATE PHYSICS TUTORING

Since 2005, we’ve helped students improve their confidence and grades in physics.

We’re especially proud of the fact that other educators (teachers and professors) and high profile members of the Princeton University Administration trust us with their children’s academic success and recommend our services to others.

Our physics tutors have helped many students clarify the subject matter, understand how to approach a problem step by step, and improve grades and confidence.

WORK WITH A PHYSICS EXPERT

Hi, I’m Tim.

What parents say about our Physics tutors

Our team includes award-winning Princeton University undergrads and Master’s/PhD graduates who are rigorously screened and are extremely effective at communicating the material.

A brief “case study”: 

We’ve worked with one client, the family of a student from Princeton High School who is now a graduate of Lehigh University, for many years.

The father contacted us to help his son pass a summer physics course in order to graduate.

He had never taken physics before and needed a boost to ensure his success in the course.

One of the things we had struggled with through the years was the student’s lack of interest and motivation in academics. In the end, the student improved dramatically, both in terms of grades and attitude.

We matched the student with Tim, a mechanical and aerospace engineering major at Princeton University who was valedictorian of his high school, achieved a perfect score on the SAT and each of his SAT subject tests, and on 16 AP tests.

Here’s some feedback:

“Tim has been exceptional, a big help. Leland got through Physics 1A satisfactorily. One more summer session to go. Interesting development!

Leland is tutoring classmates in his physics class now. Thanks to Tim, Leland is now ahead of the curve.”

“Thank you very much! Leland could not have done it without you (and Tim).

He met his objectives: completed physics, earned the credits necessary to graduate from Lehigh and matriculated into Cornell’s College of Human Ecology’s post-baccalaureate one-year certificate program….

Without your tutoring services, he would not have gotten closer reaching his full potential.

This is truly a fairy tale story, a frog that turned into the prince. You would be proud of his recent development and maturity.”

We receive messages like these every week.

We regularly track progress

Progress reports are shared after every session so you always know what’s going on.

A Real-Life Example: 

Student: Rose
Tutor: Julie
Subject(s): AP Physics
Date: 1/22/20
Time Tutored: 17:00 – 18:00
Next Scheduled Session: Wed, 01/22 5:00 PM

Previous Quiz/Test Scores:

Rose says the exam on Friday (1/17) went better than previous exams.

Material Covered:

Energy (including kinetic, potential, and spring energy), conservation of energy, and work.

We went through some introductory examples involving these concepts from the textbook, and related them back to examples discussed in Rose’s AP Physics class. Rose demonstrates strong understanding of these topics.

Additional Comments:

I absolutely believe that any limitations in Rose’s understanding of AP Physics stem from having a confusing teacher.

Rose rapidly understands the concepts we cover, and is able to work through textbook problems, once the basics are explained to her in a more intuitive manner.

Assignments for Next Week:

Rose may continue working through the Energy chapter textbook problems.

LEARN HOW WE CAN HELP

Addresses common student issues

A deep understanding of the subject matter allows us to personalize our approach.

Why is Physics important?

If you’re planning on majoring in the maths or sciences, colleges will most likely want to see how well you do in Physics class.

Regardless, it’s nice to be able to take the math you’ve learned (whether Algebra or Calculus) and apply it in ways that help you understand how the world works.

Why do some students struggle with Physics?

Many students are intimidated by physics and find the material especially difficult compared to other subjects.

Physics combines higher-level science concepts with calculus and algebra, which means that students without a strong foundation in math will face difficulties from the start.

In addition, many physics problems require multiple steps and long calculations.

It is imperative for students to be organized and to document their calculations step by step. A student might make a careless mistake that results in the wrong answer, but if they’ve clearly shown their work, they can sometimes receive partial credit for their work

Exceptionally Well

"Suhaas's sessions with Jonah went really well. We are waiting for his AP and SAT Physics result which will be out sometime in July.

He did exceptionally well in school and got and A in Physics, in which he was struggling the first 2 quarters.Would like to Thank you for matching him up with Jonah."
