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 : $34/h

Perfect! I did one session with Moos. It went well, I ended up with 100% on the exam for the material we worked on together!

Denys

Perfect! Moos is very knowledgeable and patient tutor. He helped to my 12-th grade son tremendously with electromagnetism concepts. Highly recommended.

Moos's response

Denys's son is a good student with a real knack for math. At times it would be good for him to show more patience for really understanding the underlying physics, before jumping to applications. Being a little more organized about notes, homework, and other teaching material would be helpful as well. Still, it's a real pleasure tutoring him and my experience with him and his family has been nothing but good.

Perfect! Extremely helpful and knowledgeable tutor with detailed in depth knowledge of condensed matter physics. Sudhanshu was one of the best tutors I have used in a long long time. He was extremely helpful and knew a lot about numerous subjects. He seemed to care about his clients immensely and was willing to put in extra effort and work to help my achieve my goals. Sudhanshu knew the subject matter exceptionally well for my physics class. We went over my entire semester's course material for my upcoming exam. I highly recommend using Moos

Moos's response

Great student, very dedicated, asks good questions. He was patient with me when I had to look up information on some subjects and it was fun working together to understand some particularly tricky concepts. Would definitely work with him again.

B
Brandon

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.

M
Madeline

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.

Sheila

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.

J
Jeroen

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.

Interview with Moos

QUESTION 01 | 05
When and why did you develop an interest in your chosen field?
Moos — Even as a child, my curiosity frequently had me wondering why the natural world works the way it does. In school I quickly took to math, physics and chemistry. I decided to continue my studies in physics because it combines the deep, abstract understanding of mathematics with the real world. It's like solving a puzzle, and then checking your answer by observing the universe.
QUESTION 02 | 05
What makes you passionate about your subject?
Moos — I love physics for its elegance in describing the laws of nature. The way that seemingly different concepts fit together seamlessly, connected by an intricate network of mathematical ideas, is extremely beautiful to me. In teaching, I try to convey that beauty to my students. You do not need a strong math background to see these connections and analogies! Physics is everywhere around you, you only have to open your eyes to it.
QUESTION 03 | 05
What do you like about tutoring? What makes you a "Superprof"?
Moos — It's truly wonderful when a student finally realizes that a certain concept or subject is not as difficult as they thought it was. Getting to that point requires patience and persistence, as well as creativity. Sometimes I need to explain a formula in four different ways before it happens, and I am always glad to do so, as the result is all the more rewarding.
QUESTION 04 | 05
Do you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?
Moos — I had some excellent teachers in high school, who encouraged me to explore beyond the text book and ask critical questions. Without them, I would not have become a physicist, nor a teacher. Sadly, I feel that many physics teachers take the wrong approach, focusing too much on the math and not enough on conceptual understanding. A good or bad teacher can make a huge difference, not only for your grades but also for your interests and even your career path!
QUESTION 05 | 05
What are your keys to success?
Moos — I always look at the environment around me for inspiration, when explaining a concept in physics. A water bottle, a table, someone riding their bicycle outside the window. Keeping that connection with the real world, whenever possible, is key to understanding and to stimulating your curiosity.
