"My passion for physics and math distinguishes me as a tutor because I explain the "why" behind the "how".

" As far as tutoring, I have had students ranging from sophomores in high school to adults transitioning into a new career. My Engineering curriculum at Northwestern was heavily centered around math, chemistry, biology, and physics, so I can work with a student on more than one class at a time. I'm a laid back individual, but I like to push my students. I know that every student is able to do well and I really enjoy helping them along their path to success. But being laid back, I am good at relaxing a student and helping point out what is important and what is not." ...

" Counseling involves taking concepts that can be abstract or counter-intuitive, and making sure the client appropriately understands the concepts. My experiences working as a lawyer and equipment technician have taught me how to distill difficult concepts into much more understandable material. I then build on that material until the student has mastered the subject. I owe it to my students to be a master of the subject I am teaching and to be more than just adequately prepared for each lesson. I like to prepare much more material than I expect to cover, and I am thrilled when my student gets through more material than I expect." ...
