My teaching schedule is very congested right now. I will try to respond to inquiries late at night and sometimes early in the morning.
Students in math and science sometimes struggle on exams even after carefully completing all homework. As students advance through coursework, they are asked not only to mimic homework problems, but also to solve problems they have not seen. Let me help you to do your best to meet this challenge by bringing a mathematical sciences way of thinking to life.
I coach math, science, writing, scientific illustration, and presentation. I want to help you to "learn to learn," to digest concepts, and to practice skills. My primary focus is high school- and college-level physics and math. I also teach graduate students, as well as research scientists from traditionally less quantitative disciplines interested in strengthening their skills in mathematical modeling.
I have unusual experience communicating mathematical and physical sciences concepts to diverse audiences.
I am part of the National Cancer Institute's Physical Sciences-Oncology Centers (PSOC) Network, where I contribute to knowledge transfer between physical scientists, biologists, clinicians, and patient advocates. My participation in the PSOCs began while I earned my PhD in physics (2010) at Princeton University (NSF and NDSEG Graduate Research Fellow), continued during my postdocship in cancer biology with the University of California, San Francisco (2010-2012), and continues through my affiliation as an Analyst at UCSF. My interests have included studying the consequences of dynamic heterogeneity for optimizing therapy and developing a video tutorial course to help interdisciplinary scientists model biological systems mathematically. I received my BS in Physics from Harvey Mudd College, where I earned a 990 on the Physics GRE and was employed as a tutor in quantum mechanics.
My illustrations have been published in journals including Science, Phys. Rev. Lett., Proc. Natl Acad. Sci. USA, and Phys. Biol.
Only serious inquiries please. (Students outside my posted commuting range may be asked to agree to 2-hr minimum sessions.)
