Introduction: I provide tutoring to high school and college students in maths, chemistry and physics. My Thumbtack profile references are excellent and I received a "Best in 2016" award from Thumbtack based on customer reviews. I have a Ph.D. in chemistry and I taught chemistry and calculus at a community college. I have successfully tutored students in maths, chemistry and physics and all my students improve their grades after working with me. I am very patient and I help students master difficult concepts. One of my students graduated valedictorian in her high school after working with me on maths, chemistry and physics. Another of my students scored a 5 (highest mark) in AP Chemistry and a 4 in AP Calculus. One of my college students scored an A in multivariable and vector calculus after working with me. Another student attending NYU scored an A in Physics 2 after working with me. Currently I am tutoring students in high school multivariable calculus, college complex analysis, college physics and college chemistry. All of my online students receive copies of each session's notes immediately after each lesson. Please contact me for online tutoring. I enjoy seeing students master material that they thought was difficult. When necessary, I review prior material so that they are comfortable with handling new problems. My students comment on the fact that I am patient and easy to work with. When the opportunity is available, I also work ahead with them, so that when that material is covered in class, they are not seeing it for the first time.

I really enjoyed the tutoring sessions. Howard teaches very well and has a lot of experience. He always makes sure that I understood. I was struggling in Organic Chemistry but upon starting my tutoring sessions, my grade went up and I was able to understand the concepts a lot better. Thank you very much!

Howard Siegerman recently tutored my daughter in Pre Calc. He was very thorough and patient. She is now confident about returning to class and being prepared for upcoming lessons. I highly recommend his tutoring.

Dr. Siegerman is very good at explaining the difficult concepts of college chemistry. He is very amicable and patient, which is very helpful to me as a struggling learner. Every concept of chemistry comes natural to Dr. Siegerman, which he knows very well. Thank you :)

My daughter has been working with Howard for several weeks now for a HS physics class with which she was really struggling. Howard was quick to respond to my request for information, and my daughter started working with him right away. He has been professional, patient, caring and very easy to work with. He's an excellent tutor. My daughter enjoys the sessions and has gotten a tremendous amount of help in a short time. His work with her has made a huge help in her confidence level! We plan to keep working with Howard so my daughter can stay on top of the class and get the grade she so deserves. Update: my daughter worked with Howard the entire school year as he helped her prepare for tests and eventually her final exam. Within the first month of their working together she went from struggling to understanding the concepts and doing well on homework and tests. She ended up with an A each semester and an A on the final exam! Howard was THE KEY to my daughter’s success. He was the best tutor we’ve ever worked with hands down. He was patient, insightful, encouraging and so accommodating. He truly cared about how my daughter was doing in the class. I would not only recommend Howard to anyone, I plan on using him again next school year for a math class my daughter is taking. Best. Tutor. Ever!!

Howard tutored my daughter in calculus and she said that Dr. Seigerman helped her a lot. The whiteboard he uses makes it feel like you are having an in-person tutoring session. He also has a very warm and engaging approach. I will be using Howard for both my daughters in AP Physics, Honors Chemistry and Calc. Extremely knowledgeable​ and clear that he has a lot of experience teaching.
