Zurich Physics Tutor

Physics, whether calculus-based physics, AP physics, or college-level physics, can be a difficult subject.

A student studying physics might have to master Newtonian dynamics, thermodynamics, or electromagnetism, all subjects that are unintuitive at first glance. Fortunately, physics does not have to be unintuitive. A proper teacher can show a student how simple mental models and deductive logic clearly lead to the fundamentals of physics. The result? Better grades, and no more rote memorization of formulae.

Most high school teachers and college professors teach physics as a collection of unrelated concepts and arcane formulae. This is the approach I avoid. Physics, in my view, starts with understanding the fundamental puzzles that scientists were trying to solve. Then, physics is about the mental models and natural intuitions that scientists used to make sense of natural phenomena. Last, it’s about the mathematics that the scientists used to predict and generalize about future phenomena.
When physics is taught through this 3 step process, it becomes comprehensible, intuitive, and interesting! I aim to teach physics not as a dead science or foreign language, but as a very human endeavor of understanding and explaining the natural world. As a result, my students learn to appreciate the beauty of physics, and their grades reflect this as well.

1. A thorough study plan, updated weekly
2. A copy of my book: Einstein’s Guide to Physics
3. Unlimited email support
4. Structured, helpful tutoring lessons

I graduated from ETH Zurich in 1900, and got my PhD from the University of Zurich in 1905. After many groundbreaking physics papers, I received the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1921. Afterwards, I decided to devote myself to Zurich GRE prep. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
