I studied Space Physics for 4 years at a private university where I maintained good connection with my professors in a 1 on 1 setting. I enjoyed being a Teacher's Assistant for multiple years, and like helping others succeed and understand science fields. Although I will gladly extend my knowledge base to help with any science field, I am most qualified in subjects such as: Astronomy, Coding (MATLAB primarily but will teach coding concepts), Physics, Mathematics (Through to Differential Equations), and Optics. I will gladly travel farther than 20 miles, with adjusted rates.
Because I am younger and have more recently completed schooling, I can relate to students on a more personal level. I am a patient person as well and can deal with both energetic fast paced learners as well as methodical slower learners. I love the fields that I tutor in and show a great passion of the subjects to my students. This helps them feel more motivated and inspired about their work. Every subject that I tutor in I take great pride in preparing material to help individualize the learning experience and expose students to uniquely tailored lessons to difficult subjects.
I took Algebra I in High School and passed with an A. I continue to tutor and help others with math at a much higher level with heavy involvement in Algebra I. I deal with basic and advanced Algebra to this day with research.
I took Algebra II in High School and passed with an A. I continue to tutor and help others with math at a much higher level with heavy involvement in Algebra II. Math is my strongest subject aside from physics and I have several math books that I would pull information from in tutoring.
I took my geometry math course early on in Middle School and passed with an A. I have many math books of higher levels that deal with elementary geometry. Also, I can and will develop material as needed to help students.
I took a computational physics course directly involving MATLAB and received an A in the course. I used MATLAB extensively for 3 years of physics lab courses. I currently use MATLAB for thermodynamics research.
I graduated college with a Space Physics degree with an overall 3.8 GPA at a private university. I love physics and have kept all of my text books from college. I was a teacher's assistant for 2 years in basic physics labs and advanced optics lab.
I received an A for pre-calculus in high school and have used this material for many courses throughout college. I have many books including pre-calculus that I can use to help produce material. I can prepare questions and material to help students.
