I’m currently finishing the final year of my Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management. I’m also excited about continuing my education by pursuing an additional degree in physics next year. During the past two years, I’ve been fortunate to study in sunny Colorado while contributing at an internship in a high tech company in the plasma industry. Participating at this company has included accounting, tax preparation, CAD drawing, web design, and various other projects. Along the way, I’ve also shared my love of math and science by tutoring students in a range of subjects from algebra to accounting to physics. Throughout high school I also volunteered with different groups to tutor. In one case, we helped students with a primary language other than English. I've come to realize that I love explaining a topic in a myriad of ways until it makes sense to a student. Using tangible objects and color coded drawings is another way I like to relate abstract concepts to a student. My favorite part is seeing it “click” for the student.
Albert Einstein once said, "Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid." This sentiment couldn’t be more important to my teaching philosophy. Typically the one-size-fits-all approach of traditional teaching can miss those students that see the world in a different way. By going one-on-one and understanding the unique approach of an individual, the material can be revealed in a way that makes intuitive sense. Helping a student to truly understand the material and connect it to what they already know about the world, instead of dumping a list of seemingly endless facts on them is crucial to helping a student reach the point where they don’t just understand, they’re having fun. More than just learning a subject, I want the student to love learning. Beyond academics, I'm always trying to catch the latest movie and try unique food with my wonderful wife. I also enjoy reading books about physics, cooking new creations, running, and working on graphic design projects. I'm excited to hear from you and begin helping you tackle your academic goals!
