I have taught introductory and AP physics at an elite boarding school in CT for the past four years and have recently moved to the Bay Area. I am young and enthusiastic and enjoy the opportunity to help students not only understand physics, but to grow to enjoy it. I believe that Physics is the most basic of the sciences and once students get past the daunting title of the course that they really begin to enjoy the subject matter as it explains all that is happening around them. I welcome the opportunity to help any students who may be struggling in Physics or in math and am confident that I can help them gain confidence and an understanding of the material.
