About Rachel

My name is Rachel, and I'm a graduate of the University of Arizona. I have been tutoring throughout college, primarily in the physical sciences, and I love helping people learn.

It's true that math and science are difficult subjects. However, I believe that with the right tools, everyone is capable of succeeding. I understand that different people can have very different learning styles, and that's great! I am very flexible and patient, and I will work to find the method that works best for you.

I hold a B.S. in Physics, with a concentration in Astrophysics. I've taken a wide variety of courses, from classical mechanics to general relativity.

I actually nearly chose English as my college major! In my entire academic career, I have never earned a grade lower than an A in any English class. I am experienced in MLA and APA formats, and am also proficient in technical and scientific writing.

Heisenberg's operators may not commute, but I do! I'm able to travel throughout the valley. Feel free to contact me with any questions. I look forward to working with you!
