My name is Christina and I have a BS in Physics
with a Minor in Psychology
from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. I just moved to Durham and am trying to save money so that I can start my Masters in Physics at UNH. I will eventually go for my PhD relating to theoretical quantum physics and then work as a professor while doing independent research. Basically if you've ever seen The Big Bang Theory, it's Sheldon's job plus teaching.
I absolutely adore math
, and love thinking of shortcuts and the most efficient, creative ways to solve problems. In middle school I won my regional MATHCOUNTS competition twice because of such pursuits, and it has instilled in me a love for standardized tests. I took the SAT
5 times, once a year starting in 7th grade. By 9th grade I had a math score of 770 and by 11th I had a reading
score of 710. I received a 5/5 on the AP Calculus
AB exam in 9th grade. Over a year ago I took the GRE
and received a perfect score in math.
I have tutored students younger and older than myself at every stage of education, be it elementary, middle, high school, or being employed by RPI as a one-on-one tutor. I enjoy passing on my love of learning and am enthralled by the challenge of using creativity to explain concepts to each student in a new way specific to their interests and learning style.
I am so excited to tutor! Students leaving a session with me will have a new way to look at the concepts they were struggling with and will have a new found excitement for the subject matter. They will be more efficient at solving problems and have an improved mathematical memory. The money will then help me continue my education. It's a win-win! I can't wait to start.
