I am a Masters student in Physics at the University of Washington and have over 10 years of teaching and tutoring experience. Most recently, I worked as a teacher at the Yellow Wood Academy, a private high school that offers students a specialized one-on-one classroom environment. At YWA, I taught all high school science classes (including AP, Computer Programming, and Environmental Science) and all levels of high school math. In addition to my teaching and tutoring duties, I designed individualized lesson plans, curricula, homework assignments, and tests.

Subjects I have successfully tutored
Physics: all levels
Chemistry: all levels high school, plus P-Chem, O-Chem
Biology: all levels high school
Math: all levels high school, plus Differential Equations, Statistics, some Group Theory.
Standardized test preparation (incl. SAT, ACT, GRE, MCAT)

Need help in another area? Just ask! While math and science are the subjects I am most passionate about, I am well-versed in many academic areas, and I may be able to help you.

What is your teaching philosophy?

lorem ipsum

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

As a student grows to greater and greater levels of expertise, it becomes more and more difficult to find a mentor to lead the way. There comes a point in everyone's education at which they must cut loose from their teachers to acquire new knowledge. This rare knowledge tends to be the most valuable and the most lucrative. In a way, therefore, my job is to make myself unnecessary. Towards this end, I introduce students to new resources so that they can guide themselves. I encourage them to approach problems creatively and look for novel solutions. Most importantly, a student needs motivation to seek out answers on their own. In the meantime, a teacher can foster independence by helping the student to gain confidence.
