I graduated Spring of 2012 from Arizona State University with a B.S. in Physics (4.0 GPA) with additional emphasis in Mathematics and Astrophysics/Astronomy. In the future, I will be moving towards a Masters in Secondary Education to ultimately be a physics and math teacher at the high school level. Beginning with high school, I have been helping and tutoring my fellow students and colleagues struggling with physical and mathematical concepts and problems in the context of homework, studying for exams, and even personal curiosity with respect to the scientific realm of understanding. During my undergraduate years at ASU, I was involved in a various number of positions in the physics department including, but not limited to: teaching assistant (grading as well as helping with homework), single and group tutoring within the ASU Academic Success Center (emphasis on physics and calculus), and teaching labs/recitations to physics students (along with the associated office hours, personal appointments, etc). My primary method in teaching and tutoring students, especially when it comes to physics, is to ask questions to help the student fully understand a concept by examining it from many different angles. My philosophy, like many physics professors, is that when you obtain an answer to a question or problem, step back and think to yourself, "Does this make physical sense? Am I considering all the variables?" Understanding an answer is ten times more important than the answer itself.
I live near ASU campus, so naturally that is my target audience and preferred location to teach and tutor. I am, however, willing to visit off-campus sites up to 5 miles away.
