I would like to tutor High School Math, Physics, and Chemistry to students who would like to improve their understanding of the subject and its relevance.

I have strengths in articulating math and science concepts at an introductory level, and helping students improve their problem-solving skills.

Over the years I've adopted and developed some generalized approaches to problem solving, applicable both to basic and more advanced problems in the physical sciences and applied math. I'm confident I can convey some of these approaches to High School students. Wish I would have been introduced to them in High School!

I'm currently a post-doc scientist at UC Davis in the Hydrology Program, wrapping up some research projects in statistical and physical hydrology.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping to get it together with the math and science!
