I am looking to tutor students in science or math. I have expertise in this area, including a Master's Degree in physics from Penn State. At Penn State, I worked as a teaching assistant for six semesters, so I understand how to instruct. I taught introductory physics for pre-med students, which gave me practice in explaining technical concepts to people who's area of expertise differs from mine. I enjoy teaching; one of the most rewarding experiences I've had is seeing a student finally grasp a difficult concept. Although my degree is in physics, I am knowledgeable about other fields as well, especially math.
