Like many kids, I graduated high school without a problem and without any idea for what I wanted to do with my life. I knew that I liked math, but I didn't take any physics courses in highs school. I signed up for physics in college not knowing what to expect, but after the first few classes I knew that it was right for me. Finally, I was in a class with a bunch of like-minded individuals, learning about things that I was genuinely interested in. I truly enjoyed learning about physics, and decided to pursue a degree in physics.

In May 2013 I earned my Bachelors of Arts in physics from the University of Colorado at Boulder. I graduated Magna Cum Lade (with a GPA 3.60) for my honors research project on chemical vapor deposition diamond as a tracking material. I still truly enjoy learning about physics and would love for the opportunity to get younger generations excited about physics too.

As a physicist I am also very good at math and I am willing to tutor up through differential equations.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Study Skills

In May 2013 I graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder with a degree in Physics. I graduated with Mangna Cum Laude with a GPA of 3.60. I also wrote an honors thesis on chemical vapor deposition diamonds. Over my college experience I have developed good study techniques and feel confident in my ability to pass them onto younger generations.
