I'm an undergraduate at Princeton University working toward a degree in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, with the Sustainable Energy Certificate.
I have a strong background in tutoring both math and physics, having done so with underclassmen through high school programs.
I've also worked extensively with kids and teens, at a waterspouts day camp in Miami, and a sleepaway camp in North Carolina.
I think the most important motivator in tutoring is to show my own enthusiasm for the subjects I teach. Breaking down a problem, and making "problem maps" for complex problems gives students a solid foothold to start and follow through a problem. Working examples using these maps during tutoring sessions is a good way to identify weaknesses.
My end goal is to show students that with comfort in a subject comes interest. A big part of my reward from tutoring comes from making opaque subjects understandable.
