I am a 25-year-old graduate level physics student with experience tutoring students at all levels. I am currently employed by the Drexel University department of physics as a physics tutor/TA and have been tutoring math and physics for more than four years (including at my undergraduate institution). I also spent three-and-a-half months living in Izmir, Turkey where I taught young children from over 32 countries about math, science, and the American Space Program.

In terms of standardized testing I scored an 800 out of 800 on the quantitative portion of the GRE and a 680 out of 800 on the verbal. That corresponds to the 94th and 96th percentile of test takers, respectively.

I've also taken the AFOQT or Air Force Officers Qualifying test where I scored 99th percentile in academic aptitude, 99th percentile in navigator, 96th percentile in pilot, 97th percentile in verbal and 99th percentile in the quantitative portions of the test.

I love meeting new people and look forward to meeting you in the future.

I applied to join the air force OTS program this past year and took the AFOQT as part of the application process. My scores on the exam were as follows:

Academic Aptitude - 99 percentile
Navigator - 99 percentile
Pilot - 96 percentile
Verbal - 97 percentile
Quantitative - 99 percentile


I took two semesters of C++ in college and received an A in both courses. We used the book "Starting Out with C++ - early objects (sixth edition)" by Gaddis, Walters, and Muganda. I've also programmed in C (and python) for a graduate level mathematical physics course covering numerical simulation, Fourier transforms, etc.


I am currently a Ph.D Physics student at Drexel University.
