I have 11+ years of experience teaching math and physics at the high school and college level. I enjoy teaching physics in a manner that is catered to my students. Some students thrive with equations, others prefer a more visual approach to problems. I help students figure out what works best for them and adjust my teaching style accordingly. I've had many years of experience teaching high school and college students, and I've helped high school teachers become certified in physics. I've helped many AP physics students excel in their classes.

I hold a Ph.D. in Physics from a top-rated US school. As a teaching assistant in graduate school, I earned several teaching and research awards.

    My son has worked twice weekly with Dr Kaur since starting AP physics. Even through his challenging learning style, and rather tenuous pre-requisites (concurrently in Alg II), she has patiently identified his needs and adapted to his style. Others couldnt. Strongly recommended, especially given her educational background.

    My daughter absolutely loves working with Davneet, she has helped her tremendously with physics. She breaks things down so it’s easier to understand. Highly recommend her!

    Frequently asked questions

    I ask the student about their background in physics, what their interests are and what their major is (or will be) in college. This gives me an idea of what excites them and how they might think about different problems.

    I next assess their mathematical preparedness for the class. If they need more preparation in certain areas, I provide supplementary materials and guidance to catch them up.

    I have a Ph.D in Physics from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. During my time at UIUC, I was a teaching assistant for many years during which I won several awards for teaching that I was nominated for by students as well as senior teaching faculty. Before graduate school, I also tutored for my undergraduate department at Queens College, CUNY and as a private tutor to high school and college students, and high school teachers.

    I've worked with students with many different background. As a teaching assistant, I've taught engineering, architecture, computer science and pre-medicine students. As a tutor, I've worked with high school and college students with different levels of familiarity with physics. My students included high school teachers seeking certification in physics.

    A good physics teacher can explain a concept to you in many different ways. If it doesn't make sense in the first explanation, they should present a few more ways of looking at the problem until it does. If it begins to feel overwhelming, as physics and math often do, a good teacher will reel you back in and not let the stress roadblock you.
