I love learning. It is an essential part of what makes us human - growing as an individual, learning new concepts or skills, and building relationships with others. Every person has their own interests and goals, and a large classroom setting with more than 25 people with different aspirations, paces, and inclinations is not conducive to nurturing our innate capacity to gain lessons from others. One-on-one or small groups settings can be much better structured to help everyone achieve what they desire. If you are struggling with your physics and math homework, let me help you not only understand these concepts, but how they can help you work towards whatever you want to achieve!
I have had six years of experience demonstrating physics demonstrations in fun and interactive ways. I spent four of these years with the Physics Van at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, and my past two with the Department of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Washington. I've also had teaching experience as a TA for various non-major science classes, and recently became the outreach co-coordinator for my Department, helping to coordinate volunteers and develop outreach videos and demonstrations. Along the way, I've received excited whoops from gyms full of excited elementary school children, demonstrated the power of thunderstorms in the shadow of the Washington Monument at the country's first annual Science and Engineering Expo, won numerous accolades for my outreach and teaching, become drenched in soap more times than I can count, and made many mistakes and grown as a teacher. I've learned the best way to teach material is to develop a rapport and treat my fellow learners with respect. With a Bachelor's degree in physics, and a current Master's candidate in Atmospheric Science, I think I have both the knowledge and the enthusiasm for teaching that can help you become comfortable with new and difficult concepts.
