I am a creative and effective tutor with Master's degree in Physics and years of experience working with students of all ages. My tutoring goal is always to help the student should develop a deep and thorough understanding of the material - not merely know how to get the correct answer. That way, they can become self-reliant and use their knowledge to solve new and challenging problems on their own. I have a highly effective teaching method, and the many glowing reviews that my students have ...
On time and easy to understand. He came to our home and really knew the subject matter. Put my student?s math concerns at ease.
- Emily V. from South Pasadena, CA
Breakers everything down and makes you understand it by a step by step process rather then loading you up. No accent so you understand him clearly , best in the game .

I strongly recommend tutoring with Geoffrey! I am a career-changer applying to medical school after years in the humanities and social sciences. When I started a recent Calculus course, it had been over a decade since I touched math. Geoffrey was so helpful at filling the gaps in my knowledge and bringing me to conceptual understanding. He really focused on the concepts, with plenty of examples to ensure I got it. He's really got a knack to adapting the speed and depth of his teaching to where you're at, going fast to cover a lot of ground when I kept up and slowing it down when I got stuck. He seemed to figured out pretty quickly what it was I was missing when I didn't understand, even when I couldn't articulate it. In the end, I got an A+ in my Calculus course! I will be returning to Geoffrey when I need help in the future.

Geoffrey was extremely knowledgeable in Calculus and helpful in breaking information down into digestible pieces. I appreciated his willingness to meet me where I'm at and build from there. Great tutor, would definitely recommend him to help tackle Calculus!
- Sara M. from Los Angeles, CA
Geoffrey was easy to work with. He covered a review and quickly jumped into covering the level I am currently studying in school. He is direct, precise & knowledgeable.
- William C. from Los Angeles, CA
You will not find a better tutor than Geoffrey! He worked with me on college-level classes on quantum and statistical mechanics and analytic mechanics. He is incredibly knowledgeable and patient, and can really clarify concepts. He will identify your weaknesses and target them. He's an excellent communicator, does amazingly good exam revision and is familiar with most of the key textbooks in use. He is flexible with schedules and manages to accommodate last minute changes pretty well...and he has a great sense of humor! His math and physics are particularly strong. I would take him again in a heartbeat...he's my go-to tutor from now on!

Geoffrey does an excellent job of teaching the material and giving me a methodical approach to completing difficult Physics problems. He also has doing an excellent job of preparing for my next exam.
- Erick T. from Elk Grove, CA
Geoffrey was a great tutor. He helped me understand the material very well and I have a clear picture of what to do, what is expected, and how to approach that difficulty of work. His tips and guidance along the way made me feel good about the problems and I was able to complete them on my own! Very good tutor: patient, accurate, intelligent, and helpful.
- Alex C. from Cerritos, CA
I met with Geoffrey three times while studying Linear Algebra and he has been knowledgeable and helpful at all times. He has answered my questions with patience and clarity. Definitely recommended!
- Petr G. from Glendale, CA
Geoffrey exhibits great patience while tutoring. He identifies the problem areas and concentrated on getting complete understanding in those areas. He is very thorough in the work he does.
- Amber D. from Los Angeles, CA
He taught me the value of exponential decay and its relation to capacitors. This relationship is further solidified by understanding how each capacitor is differently affected when put into series or parallel.
- Stephen W. from Los Angeles, CA
Geoffrey is a gifted tutor. Truly. My 17-year-old son has benefited greatly under Geoffrey's tutelage. He is prompt, and gets right down to business. He's a gem.
- Janice A. from Santa Monica, CA
He is the central reason that I?m looking at an A in my logic class at UCB. I would recommend him to anyone, incredibly helpful and kind. I am so thankful for all of his help!
- Natasha H. from Sun Valley, CA
I have worked with Geoffrey through two physics courses and could not be more impressed. I had been terrified of the subject for a while, but Geoffrey made the material simple and was able to relate it to everyday situations. He understands what professors intend to teach and fills in the gaps where necessary. I HIGHLY recommend Geoffrey's services and would work with him a third time if I had the chance.
- Ricky D. from Van Nuys, CA
Having had experience with multiple tutors on Wyzant, struggling with a variety of school subjects, specifically math, I was extremely impressed as to how Geoffrey was able to completely understand my course dynamic and produce his own problem sets and tutoring methods tailored to my needs. I went from a C- in the class at the start of the course to an A- by the end. I would highly recommend scheduling a lesson with Geoffrey if you?re looking to achieve your best. Math was never my thing and I never thought that it would ever be. I had convinced myself tutoring would just slightly help me, but looking back on how far I?ve come and the extent to which I now understand mathematics thoroughly I can?t thank Geoffrey enough for getting me to this point. He is understanding, caring, positive and no matter the topic he knows it. Not only does he understand the subject matter to the highest degree but he knows the quickest and most effective way for you to learn it and apply it in class. All in all absolutely outstanding tutor, which I will be recommending to all my peers who express interest.
- Sam R. from Los Angeles, CA
As always, a fantastic lesson. Geoffrey never disappoints. He makes learning my material fun. He breaks down all the complexity of the textbook into the chunks that really matter. And as such through working with him over this semester he has increased my competence and my ability to enjoy what I am learning.
- Jacob B. from Chicago, IL
Excellent AP Calculus Tutor. Knowledgeable and helpful with homework assignments and exams. Recommend him highly. He has full knowledge of the subject. Explains the problems clear and concisely.
