CLASSES I OFFER

Class Levels

  • Conceptual Physics: This level focuses on building an understanding of basic concepts and principles without heavy mathematical formalism. The emphasis is on developing intuition, critical thinking, and qualitative reasoning. I suggest that students in grades (1-4) choose this level.

  • Quantitative Physics: Students begin to delve into more quantitative aspects of physics at this level. They learn to apply basic mathematical tools such as algebra, simple trigonometry, and introductory vector algebra to problems. I suggest that students in grades (4-8) choose this level.

​​​

  • Advanced Physics: Here, students delve into more sophisticated topics in classical mechanics, such as rotation, gravity, and electromagnetism. The mathematical rigor increases, with a focus on trigonometry, differential equations, and more sophisticated vector algebra. Students who have completed the quantitative level may sign up for this class. I suggest that students in grades (7-10) choose this level. You can take a self-assessment here to see if you are ready.

                                                                        

 Summer 2024 Schedule 

I am offering two problem-solving sessions in the summer of 2024.

 

Physics problem-solving session

will be taught by Dr. Azadeh Samadani on Tuesday nights from 7 pm to 8 pm. This class aims to solidify the concepts covered over the past year and to approach them with a more mathematical perspective. This session will heavily rely on discussions and will prioritize student engagement. Each week, students will receive a "problem of the week" to solve independently, and we will collectively discuss their solutions during class. All students (new and returning/conceptual and quantitative level) are welcome.

 

Session Details: Problem-Solving Skills with Dr. Samadani

Age Group: All students

Dates: Tuesdays from 7:00-8:00 PM starting from June 11th and running until July 30th (8 sessions total)

Tuition: $160 ($20/class)

Mathematics problem-solving session

This session will be taught by Alex Wong. Alex is a former student of mine at the Pingry school. He is a rising senior at the Pingry school with a passion for math, physics, and teaching! Alex has participated in a variety of math competitions including mathleague.org, AMC 12, and PuMaC. Alex also has experience tutoring both math and English, helping students all over the world prepare for the SAT English section over Zoom. In his free time, Alex likes to play water polo, practice the piano, and read both books and science papers! He is a fantastic teacher; he has helped me for the past two years with my in-person "Math Mondays" students. He is very energetic and very good with younger kids.

Trimester Schedule

  • Fall trimester (September, October, November) - Newtonian Mechanics: Newton's laws of motion, kinematics, forces, free body diagrams. The duration of this trimester is 12 weeks. The tuition is $25/week.

  • Winter trimester (December, January, and February) - Momentum, centripetal force, energy, simple harmonic motion, rotation, waves, optics. The duration of this trimester is 12 weeks. The tuition is $25/week.

  • Spring semester (March, April, and May) - Quantum Physics and Electromagnetism. The duration of this trimester (for the spring of 2024 only) is 11 weeks. We are off the week of March 24th for spring break. The tuition is $25/week.

  • Summer semester (Roughly July 15 -Aug 15) - We will focus on Math and Physics Problem solving! This session will be discussion-based. All age groups are welcome.
