I received my Bachelor of Science in Physics with a focus on Astrophysics, I also have a degree in Chemistry. While in college I tutored Physics and Calculus and after I graduated I traveled to Russia to get my certificate to Teach English as a Second language and also to teach adults, teenagers and small children where I was also able to teach a Spanish class. I spent the summer in a summer camp in Turkey where I help teenagers and kids with their everyday life and activities in English. While I love Physics and Math, I am tutoring several Math topics, such as, Algebra, Calculus, Pre-Algebra, Pre-Calculus and also Spanish and English. I must say my favorite topic to tutor is Calculus because it helps you understand and analyze different problems in a very different way.
I like helping students because I don't think they should feel like they can't accomplish something because they don't understand a topic very well, they should be able to accomplish everything they want and since education is very necessary nowadays to have the life they want to have.It is truly amazing to help people follow their dreams.
In my free time, I love learning and practicing new languages and reading about Space and the different cultures around the world.
