I am a recent graduate of the University of Texas at Arlington! I earned a B.S. in Physics with honors as well as a minor in mathematics. I worked in a theoretical physics lab modeling and simulating new materials to be used in solar energy applications, as well as tutored physics independently. While in college, I was part of the UTeach program, a nationwide initiative to train science and math students to teach. In this program I developed a passion for working with students both in and out of the classroom. I strongly believe in inquiry-based instruction, which consists of leading students to develop solutions on their own while analyzing their thought process. This allows the student and instructor to discover the student's misconceptions and for the student to correct them. I have found that this method is much more effective than traditional styles because when the student verbalizes their thought process and corrects their own misconceptions, it is something they will remember when it comes time for an exam.
I am passionate about tutoring mathematics, physics, chemistry, and ACT prep. By having a proficient understanding of the material, combined with an inquiry-based teaching style I feel as though I am able to convey difficult concepts to students in a way that they will remember and enjoy. Outside of academia, I enjoy running, wrestling, and other sports. I also like being outdoors, reading, and cooking. I am very enthusiastic about math and science and love working with student's of all ages!
