« Perfect! I contacted Moos two weeks before my final, asking him if he could help me understand the concepts and applications of my course. He was very helpful and answered every question I had in a way I could understand. The sessions I had with him completely changed the outcome of my exam. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a tutor. »

Experienced teacher with Physics PhD offering math and physics tutoring at all levels

Methodology

I will work with you to pinpoint the root of your struggles with a given a subject. Starting from there, we will explore the material with patience and curiosity, during which you will set the pace. It is very important to me to always keep in sight the connection to the real world, and to make frequent links to things that actually interest you. Math and physics can be found anywhere, from plant biology to video games and from hockey to airplanes. In my experience, this encourages active participation and promotes a deeper understanding of the material. Because you cannot learn math or physics without practice, I will carefully select homework problems to match your level and your interests. During sessions, we will discuss these problems and work through other examples to illustrate physical and mathematical concepts. I prefer an informal and flexible structure, where you should free to interrupt me and steer the lesson into one direction or another. If more structure is needed, for example to prepare for a specific test or exam, we can set up a lesson plan and schedule together.

Background

After a completing a PhD in theoretical physics, I am looking to shift my focus fully to education. My aim is to transfer some of my passion for understanding the modern world to people of all backgrounds and ages. I have 6 years of experience as a teaching assistant, both in Canada and abroad, and I received highly positive evaluations from students and lecturers alike. I am comfortable teaching any high school or undergraduate level physics, as well as math subjects like algebra, trigonometry, geometry, calculus and complex analysis. In addition, I can help with condensed matter and statistical physics at a graduate level, though I charge a bit more for that, as it requires a lot more prep time.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $ 30/h

Details

If your plans change, please cancel at least 12 hours before the class starts. In case of last-minute cancellations, I will charge half rate.

Perfect! I contacted Moos two weeks before my final, asking him if he could help me understand the concepts and applications of my course. He was very helpful and answered every question I had in a way I could understand. The sessions I had with him completely changed the outcome of my exam. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a tutor.

Perfect! Moos is a patient, methodical, and well structured tutor. He saved me from certain failure on a electrical engineering math midterm. He even showed me a few new things on my scientific calculator I wasn't aware of.

Highly recommend !

I know Moos for a long time and he is fun to be with.
Moos is a very friendly, serious and competent teacher, he has an original and patient way of explaining things. His sense of humour and patience work for both adults and kids, I have witnessed him helping children with their homework on different subjects and the results were great.

Moos is eternally patient; if it doesn't work to explain it one way he will try another, and another. He is highly qualified though does not flaunt it, personable, and happy to work at whatever pace the learner wishes.

I've known Moos going on 7 years. He is exceptionally bright, demonstrated by extensive and in-depth knowledge on a wide range of subjects. Additionally, he is curious and possesses a willingness and ability to solve complex problems. He has a natural respect for others, is not judgmental and, regardless of his own apparent ease in learning, is both patient and empathetic towards others who may struggle to learn. I can't recommend him more highly as a teacher.

I know Moos for a very long time now. He is a natural born teacher. He has the gift to break down complicated stuff in all kind of different fields into comprehensible bits. When my daughter would come home complaining about school and not understanding a teacher, she would go to Moos. And in a very short time she would come out exclaiming "Oh! I get it! Why didn't he say so!", meaning the schoolteacher.
