Experienced Physics and Math Tutor

Sara A.
I graduated with a bachelor's in physics from Princeton University in 2019 and am currently a PhD student at Caltech in Materials Science. I have tutored peers and younger students in physics and math since high school and throughout my undergraduate and graduate studies so far, and am eager to continue tutoring those subjects.

I have also won honorary mention at the International Olympiad of Astronomy and Astrophysics and competed in astronomy-related events in Science Olympiad for 6...
