I am a graduate student studying geophysics! I love math, writing, and physics (obviously). I would love to help you out in any of my subjects.

I attended UC San Diego and graduated cum laude in Earth Sciences. I also minored in Literature and Writing. In my spare time I am a photographer and I develop my own film and make darkroom prints. I love the combination of science and art.

When it comes to teaching, I try to inspire my students not only to exceed in a challenging subject but also to learn better.

It has been shown time and time again by education researchers that all students learn differently and at their own pace. For this reason, I tailor my tutoring to each student and try to find their preferred learning method. In general but not exclusively there are visual, auditory, reading/writing, and kinesthetic learners or combinations of those types.

By figuring out your type, you can more easily tackle challenging subjects.
