I recently graduated from MIT with a Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering. I started tutoring my junior year of high school. However, I've been helping my peers understand subject materials for as long as I can remember. This made it easy to transition into tutoring other students, because I understand why students don't grasp the material. I do my best to relate it better to my students. I am patient when it comes to explaining concepts and when students finally understand the material, it is one of the most satisfying feelings. I specialize in tutoring physics especially mechanics. I can also tutor high school and college level math, SAT's, and studying/test taking skills. When I'm not tutoring, I like to stay very active. I play tennis, rock climb, paintball, and weight lift.
I've been tutoring physics for over seven years. I started tutoring honors physics during my junior year of high school while I was still taking the class. I did the same while taking AP calculus. Later on while I was attending MIT, I've tutored high school honors physics, AP physics, and college physics. During my senior year of MIT, I was also served as a physics teaching assistant and grader at MIT. Although I tutor many other subjects (mostly in standardized tests, other sciences, and math courses), I can truly say I have the most passion for physics and enjoy tutoring this subject matter the most.
