About Liam


Bio

I am a Ph.D student studying condensed matter experimental physics at UCSB. I did my undergraduate work at MIT where I completed several research projects and co-headed the team that won 1st place in the international theoretical physics Olympiad.

When I was in high school I scored an 800 on the Math level II SAT and I scored a 5 on both AP calculus tests. I love helping students learn mathematics and physics. They are hard subjects, however I feel with a little patience and attention,...

I am a Ph.D student studying condensed matter experimental physics at UCSB. I did my undergraduate work at MIT where I completed several research projects and co-headed the team that won 1st place in the international theoretical physics Olympiad.

When I was in high school I scored an 800 on the Math level II SAT and I scored a 5 on both AP calculus tests. I love helping students learn mathematics and physics. They are hard subjects, however I feel with a little patience and attention, students can come to love these subjects for their elegance and utility, just like I do. I'm extremely patient and attentive, and I take my time explaining complex concepts. I once even taught a quantum mechanics class to high schooler's who knew nothing about the subject! So, breaking down difficult ideas is my fortè.

I have tutored students in math since I was a freshman in high school. I used to tutor students older than me in pre-calculus when I was taking calculus as a freshman. I scored an 800 on my Math Level II and a 790 on the math section of the SAT. I also scored a 5 on both AP calculus exams. I've studied advanced fields of math in high school and at MIT, including multivariable calculus, linear algebra, group theory, and differential geometry. All of high school math holds the essential basics needed to understand higher level mathematics. My success at MIT is largely attributed to my strength in the foundations of Algebra, Calculus, Geometry, and Pre-Calculus.

I studied physics and electrical engineering at MIT. I co-headed the team that placed first in the International Theoretical Physics Olympiad. I scored a 790 on my SAT II physics exam in high school. I constantly helped my peers with their physics problem sets, and I have TA'd a multiple physics classes at MIT. In fact, after TAing a special relativity class, I have been described as an "incredibly talented and dedicated teacher" by professor Markus Klute - praise I am extremely proud to bear. I love teaching physics because it is my livelihood, and I'm very patient and understanding. Physics is hard, but it's also elegant and incredible. I love when a student has that "aha" moment on their face, especially in physics, because it's like they've come to understand the world a little better!

I'm a Ph.D student so my schedule is pretty flexible in terms of time, I'm also able to travel within 20 miles. Please feel free to contact me and schedule a lesson!

Subjects

Computer

Computer Programming,

Computer Programming

I have a degree in electrical engineering/computer science from MIT. My specialty is in embedded system design. Computer programming is a paradigm that is abstract beyond any one programming language. This was something heavily emphasized to me throughout my degree, and I believe is the key to becoming a good programmer.
General Computer, Python
