From an early age, I have had a passion for science and math. My passion has led me to a variety of pursuits in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). My past experience has included internships at top companies like SpaceX and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab, culminating in me earning a Ph.D. in Applied Math and Physics.
Through leadership roles in mentoring organizations, undergraduate research programs, and independent tutoring, I have devoted a great deal of time to advancing the education of the next generation of STEM leaders.
My teaching philosophy centers around helping students learn at the most fundamental levels. I strive to give my students a highly individualized educational experience, focusing on solutions that address their academic needs. I also aim to equip my students with critical thinking skills that can be applied to all academic subjects so that their learning experience is not limited. It is my hope that I do more than simply help someone get a better grade, but that I inspire them to realize their goals and pursue a well rounded education.
