I have been a student all my life, long after I didn't have to be! The excitement and reward of approaching a new, unknown subject, slowly unraveling its details and nuances, and finally feeling like I have mastered it- this is what drives me. Studying science can be boring or intimidating, but in the right hands it can be fun and exciting. For me, science is less about memorizing facts and formulas, but rather about critical thinking, asking questions, and poking around in new places. Of course, we have to learn what scientists before us have already found out before we can set out toward the frontier! That's where I come in.
I am new to tutoring, but I do have teaching experience. I taught a Meteorology 101 Lab course for two years, and worked hard to engage my students with enthusiasm, encouragement, and real-world applications as much as possible. Many of the students I taught were not strong in science, but still found ways to succeed in my class when they put forth the effort.
I received my Bachelor's degree from Tufts University in physics with a 3.29 GPA. I also took three semesters of geology and eight semesters of mathematics (that's one course per semester for all four years!). I am currently finishing a Master's degree from the University of Hawaii in meteorology (but don't worry, I currently live in Boston!). I have completed all my coursework for the degree with a 4.0 GPA and am currently finishing researching and writing my thesis.
My hours are currently extremely flexible, and I am willing to travel within the Boston metro area using public transportation. I am happy to come to your home or arrange a different location.
