I have a BS in Physics with my specialty being astrophysics. I plan on returning to graduate school and making my life long career the study of physics and the universe around us. I have a passion for helping others understand the world around us, whether that is helping someone to understand a concept or working myself to understand new concepts. I have tutored many high school students while I myself was in high school. I have come to realize that often struggles in a particular subject are not the student, but a lack of concept building blocks. Many times students are taught to memorize facts and methods, and when posed with new questions they don't have the tools to actually apply them. Supplying them with the fundamentals and first principles allows them to build upward in their skills and actually learn the concepts behind what they are working one. I found in high school that so many do not learn the basics and it tints how they learn more advanced subject matter.

What is your teaching philosophy?
To become an independent learner you must be able to take information in and assess its value and what it means given various contexts. To achieve this a student doesn't need to be taught information, they need to be taught skills and concepts that can be applied to many different walks of life.
