Private Physics Tutoring
Since 2005, we have helped students improve their confidence and grades in regular physics, honors physics, AP Physics, and SAT II in physics. Our clients have even included other professionals in the field of education - teachers, Ivy League professors, and members of the Princeton University administration. Whether your child is struggling or simply looking for enrichment tutoring, our exceptional physics tutors will create a customized approach tailored specifically for your needs. After each session, you’ll receive a detailed progress report to track your child’s improvement (view a real recap from one of our physics tutoring sessions).
What Parents Say about Our Physics Tutors
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. Most recently, 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 what the client had to say:
“Tim has been exceptional, a big help. L got through Physics 1A satisfactorily. One more summer session to go. Interesting development! L is tutoring classmates in his physics class now. Thanks to Tim, L is now ahead of the curve.”
“Kevin, Thank you very much!
L 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 chose to tutor because it was extremely rewarding and something we truly enjoyed.
Princeton Tutoring was born out of the early successes of our former clients and our desire to provide high-quality tutoring to other families. We understand better than most what parents are looking for, what children need, and which qualities make the best tutors.
Thank you for considering us. We look forward to speaking with you and working with your child to help fulfill his or her academic potential.
Why Do 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.
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.
