I'm all about Math and Science. I got my undergraduate degree in Physics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and now I am working on some research on dark matter. It took me a while to realize which branch of Math or Science was the right choice for me so I dabbled in a lot of Biology, Chemistry, Astronomy and Mathematics. Ultimately, Physics was the right choice for me. You can ask me anything about it, from basic stuff like quantum mechanics and relativity to cutting-edge research like string theory and condensed matter theory.

Though I love what I do and wish I could spend all my time doing Physics, I eventually do take a break and relax. I like to mountain climb, kayak, go to music festivals, and play guitar. My goal this summer is to climb Mt. Washington and make it back alive.

I am also fluent in Spanish and would not hesitate to tutor in the language if requested.

My tutoring style is very flexible. I do not commit to a certain approach because I think every student has their own learning methods and needs. I like to first gauge what come easy for a student and then build on that basis. Over the course of switching from major to major, I have noticed that my learning style changed from visual to abstract to rote and a lot of in-betweens. This has definitely made me able to understand different learning patterns and to be able to employ these in tutoring.

All in all, I am a friendly and enthusiastic tutor who is in love with what I do.
