I graduated from Cornell University in 2005 with a BS degree and from MIT in 2011 with a PhD. I fell in love with helping others as a tutor in college. Since then, I have accrued over 15 combined years of college and high school level tutoring. i worked as an Assistant Professor at several liberal arts schools in Physics and Engineering Physics. I am comfortable with algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and calculus-based mathematics, as well as a large range of physics topics including Newtonian mechanics, electricity and magnetism, Engineering Physics, and advanced topics. It is very rewarding to work one-on-one with individual learners. In addition, I have college-level teaching experience, which gives me perspective on how to best present homework, projects, and lab assignments.
Each student learns and works differently, so it is about finding how best to serve you. I enjoy working with students from many kinds of backgrounds, and especially care about working with students who feel anxious about the physics or math areas. Whether you are in a physics or physics-related major or just trying to make it through a required first-year physics class, I will work with you to untangle problems, prepare for exams, and finish assignments. Oftentimes, we can simplify problems by relating them to analogies in everyday life, or divide them into smaller bites. Other times, it is about locating unknowns and using our resources such as textbooks and online knowledge. Sometimes it's just about practice. I look forward to meeting you.
