I am currently a undergraduate student at the New College of Florida. I have tutored a few people in the college in areas such as Physics I Honors, Calculus I, and Calculus III. I successfully passed all of my classes, which were Calculus III, Honors Physics I, Honors Physics I Laboratory, and the Introduction to the Study of Religion, Honors Physics II, Linear Algebra, and Honors Physics II Laboratory. I am now currently enrolled in Statistical Mechanics, Ordinary Differential Equations, General Relativity, and Elementary Ancient Greek. I am doing very well in all four of my classes. We don't have grades at NCF; there is merely a pass or fail system. I am currently passing all of my classes. Due to the difficulty of my current classes, I will not be able to respond as quickly as I did last year. Each of my classes demand much of my time and concentration, so if you are looking for someone to help you within the next 24 hours, don't email me. I am not going to lie to you and say that I check my email all the time and that I will call you back ASAP. I can be an excellent tutor, as told to me by my past students, but this year is going to be difficult and I won't be able to get back to you as quickly as I would want to.

In high school, I graduated with a cumulative GPA of 4.8456, 436 service hours, and number 16 out of 656. I have taken AP Physics B, AP Chemistry, AP Calculus AB and BC, AP English Language, AP English Literature, AP World History and AP Human Geography. All of my other classes were honors classes. Many of my volunteer hours were from times that I tutored any subject in the library of my school. I often tutored ESE students because they would ask for me to tutor them. The other major thing I volunteered for was a summer camp. I usually worked with kindergarten through fifth graders at the summer camp. I got a 35 composite score on my ACT: 33 on English, 34 on Math, 36 on Reading, and 35 on Science. I also got a 2030 composite score on my SAT: 720 on Math, 630 on Reading, and 680 on Writing.
