I'm working on a PhD in Physical Oceanography at UCSB. Teaching and studying the ocean are my two favorite academic pastimes (sports being my other favorite activity).
I strive to make every session ACTUALLY enjoyable. Sitting in class all day is draining, so my sessions are different in that they are fun and engaging. You can't learn if you're bored or uninterested. I work hard to make even factoring a polynomial fun!
I have loads of experience in Math, a degree in Physics, and tons of time teaching Oceanography and Earth Science.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
It's infinitely harder to learn if you're not having fun. My tutoring sessions are fun and easy. I make things relevant with real world examples and keep everyone engaged and excited to learn!
