I first came to tutoring through helping my friends and acquaintances with their studies in math and physics courses during my first year at the University of Chicago. I continued tutoring throughout college. After some time, I discovered that I truly enjoy it when I am able to help a student understand a concept that they were struggling with. When I graduated, I found that I missed teaching, so I started with Varsity Tutors.
I studied physics during my time at the University of Chicago. The curriculum covered many different areas of study within the field of physics, including: Special and General Relativity, Quantum Mechanics, Statistical Mechanics, Electromagnetism, Classical Mechanics (Hamiltonian and Newtonian), etc. Furthermore, my studies required me to learn advanced mathematics including analysis, linear algebra, topology, and abstract algebra. My passion for physics and math only grew deeper during my time at college, and I want to impart this same passion to my students. If I can't do that, I hope that I can get them to think math and physics can at least be pretty cool!
I have also been working with many students on ACT and SAT prep, as well as preparation for various AP tests covering math and science during my time tutoring.
When I'm not tutoring, I enjoy playing and writing music (I play guitar and piano, as well as singing). I also like board games, including go, chess, Settlers of Catan etc.
