I'm an Environmental Science graduate student at Western Washington University. In 2013 I graduated Cum Laude from Colgate University in upstate New York, where I majored in Physics and minored in Geography.
My interests are in tutoring math and science at the middle school, high school, and undergraduate level, as well as SAT and ACT mathematics prep. Teaching, as well as learning, have long been passions of mine. The excitement I experience by helping others learn is what makes the job meaningful and enjoyable. To help a student become interested and proficient in his or her subject matter is my primary goal. My valued assets are my educational background, analytical skills and approachability, which I hope to put to work for you.
Some of my hobbies and interests include the rock climbing and hiking, bike riding, cooking, and the ever-constant task of teaching myself guitar. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions regarding anything.
Have a great day.
As a graduate with a physics degree, I've spent many hours practicing and perfecting my algebra skills. Algebra is an essential tool for solving many different types of problems, both academic and in everyday life. I enjoy the challenge of 'finding x' and would love to share my knowledge with you!
In college I successfully completed several astronomy classes, including Planetary Mechanics, Planetary Science, and Astronomy in Culture. In addition, my senior research class was in astronomy, during which I analyzed the spectra from several planetary bodies using an infrared spectrometer, and identified distinct spectral features in these spectra. Astronomy has long been a hobby of mine and few things inspire me more.
My academic background is strongest in the physical and natural sciences. In college I studied physics and physical geography, and thus have been exposed in an academically rigorous setting to many different areas of the physical sciences, including geology, geography, hydrology, many different areas of physics and astronomy, biophysics, and chemistry. I'm a self-designated 'science nerd', I just LOVE science, and sharing my passion with others.
My undergraduate major from Colgate University was in Physics. I have completed classes in calculus based mechanics, planetary science, electricity and magnetism, electronics, quantum physics and relativity, and biophysics. In addition, I have completed mathematical methods classes geared towards Colgate's physics majors including differential equations, 3D calculus, and Fourier analysis. My senior research project was in astronomy.
