I am a graduate student in physics at Drexel University and have been a teaching assistant for college level physics for the past two years. I enjoying teaching math and physics to middle school, high school, and college students. Particularly, I enjoy working with students to figure out what excites them about math and science, ways that I can make what they are learning about apply to what they are passionate about, such as how parabolas relate to football and how the wave equation relates to music.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Differential Equations

I took a class in Differential Equations at Goshen College in fall 2008 and passed with a B. Since then I have used much of what I have learned in that class and have stayed fresh on the material. I received my master's in Physics from Drexel University in the summer of 2012 and am currently working on my Ph.D.

Linear Algebra

I took a class in Linear Algebra at Goshen College in spring 2009 and passed with a B. Since then I have used much of what I have learned in that class and have stayed fresh on the material. I received my master's in Physics from Drexel University in the summer of 2012 and am currently working on my Ph.D.
