I'm a graduate of the University of Maryland at College Park, where I completed a physics and math double major. While I had previously never done any official tutoring during my undergraduate degree, I would often offer help to my friends and colleagues with any difficulties they would have with physics, math, and some programming. My personal favorite and likely strongest aspect of my physics and math knowledge is when the two come together in the form of mathematical methods for physics, and ordinary/partial differential equations (ODEs/PDEs). Moreover, since the previously mentioned subjects rely on more fundamental concepts that stem from algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and calculus, I am proficient in these subjects as well.
I am currently still at the University of Maryland, now pursuing a PhD in physics. During my time as a graduate student, I have completed several graduate courses in physics and applied mathematics, while at the same time doing my PhD thesis research in the field of space plasma physics.
It is one of my hobbies to pass down my understanding of a subject that I am passionate about. My experiences with tutoring have been only enjoyable and effective. It is commonly accepted that the most important part of tutoring is to make sure the student's feet are firmly planted on the fundamentals, and this is what I aim for as well. A solid foundation is the only way for a student to climb higher.
