I am currently attending Colorado School of Mines in Golden Colorado pursuing a Civil Engineering Degree with an emphasis on structural design. I enjoy tutoring because I love it when a student has an ah ha moment and their face just lights up as they grasp a new concept that they were struggling with and find themselves getting excited with the material. I am really passionate about providing the tools and time necessary for my students to have their ah ha moments. I really love tutoring math and physics because students don’t usually see the practicality or applicability of what they are learning and this degrades from the educational experience. I love to provide my students with examples of how the “tedious” equations or formulas are actually used to create many of the objects of technology that they use every day. However I am particularly passionate about teaching Physics 1: Mechanics. This is one of the first classes that students begin to take the math they have learned and apply it to real world problems. When I have free time I typically spend it outdoors going backpacking, climbing 14’ers, volunteering, and spending time with my friends having random adventures.
