I am a current Ph.D candidate, pursuing my degree in Physics at Michigan State University.
I received my Bachelor's from Trinity College in Physics, Classics, and Mathematics, all with honors. I was near the top of my class and was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa. I was an active member of multiple tutoring services on campus during all four of my years there, and recently traveled to Thailand to teach English before I enter into graduate school. I have always loved learning a plethora of subjects, academic and otherwise, and bring my full weight to bear in everything I pursue.
On the tutoring end of things, I have loved tutoring and teaching others since I began in high school. While at Trinity, I tutored privately, in groups, and TA'd for labs. I volunteered at the local middle school and helped found a Science and Mathematics suite devoted to tutoring the campus. Fostering knowledge in others has been a passion of mine for many years.
My approach has never been to give students answers, or to supply simple one-time techniques. I always aim to foster confidence and build understanding from the ground level up. I instill a mode of thought that facilitates problem solving and knowledge assimilation. If my initial explanations are inadequate, I will happily switch gears until my approach suits you, the learner.
I also offer free email support between tutoring sessions. Whether you need more material or have a question, you are welcome to email me.
Thank you for considering my services and enjoy!
