NEED HELP WITH MATH OR PHYSICS?? I graduated from University of California, Santa Barbara with a Bachelor of Science in Physics in June 2013. I absolutely love learning, and want to share my excitement by teaching others.
I am patient, and excel at explaining math and physics concepts. I strive to help students understand not only how to solve problems, but WHY they are solving them the way they are. I have a passion for learning, and it is my goal to motivate students to find that passion. Too often I hear the phrase, "I'm not good at math". I strongly believe that ANYONE can be "good" at math. Through tutoring, I seek to remove the intimidation of math and physics and help students build up confidence and understanding.
I have some experience tutoring high school physics, and college level vector calculus. While I do not have much official tutoring experience, for my entire high school and college careers I was constantly assisting friends, peers, and my younger sister with math and physics homework. I enjoyed helping other students to understand the subject material they were struggling with. Through helping others, my excitement for learning was enhanced, and thus inspired me to pursue tutoring opportunities.
Additionally, this year I was a tutor in a fifth grade classroom for six months. I met one-on-one with a fifth grade student, assisting with homework that ranged from math problems, to memorizing the fifty states and placing them on a map, to distinguishing between conjunctions and prepositions. I believe it is important to develop strong foundations in math and other subjects at the elementary level.
I am excited to expand my tutoring experience, and I look forward to potentially working with you or your children!
