Hi there. I am a Physics and Math major student, with a minor in creative writing, in my fourth year at CU Boulder. I starting my tutoring career four years ago by working with middle school students, and I have tutored college students for the past two years. I also worked as a tutor with a math department at CU for the past year, so I am well acquainted with CU's math curriculum and the problems they ask. I am a straight A student in writing and literature courses, and I love to write creatively for fun.
I can work with middle school, high school and college students.
When I tutor math and physics, I break down the cryptic symbolism into easy to understand concepts. What they don't tell you in classes is that most of physics and math is the ability to think visually, but no fear; anyone can learn to think that way. I work closely with my students to build this visual intuition, so you gain the confidence and ability to tackle further math and physics coursework on your own. I won't do your homework for you, but I'll guide you through each problem, building this intuition along the way, so you can tackle that test or final exam.
I can also help if you need a proofreader, need to organize your ideas for an essay, or even if you don't know where to start. Most people have very good rough ideas when it comes to writing a paper, but organizing those thoughts into a well-written essay is a daunting task. I can work with you so that your ideas are clear and well written. I can also help with the brainstorming and research process if you are stuck on where to start. And, if you just need a second eye to edit typos in your paper before you turn it in, I can do that too!
On the side I work for a physics lab that specializes in making telescope detectors for the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation.
I was employed as a math tutor in the CU Boulder math department for over a year. I am one course away from completing my math major, so I am well acquainted with all the topics in the math curriculum.
I love physics! It is my bread and butter, but I have also tutored physics for two years at the college level. Before that I tutored physics at the middle school level. I have worked at my physics lab for over 2 years, and am well acquainted with awesome advancements in the physics field; I like to occasionally reference these experiments and tie them into physics coursework that you are learning because it makes it so much more awesome and fun to study. I am also 2 courses away from completing the physics undergrad degree, and will enter a Physics Masters program the following year at CU (I am a dual degree undergrad/masters student)!
I have taken plenty of English and writing courses at CU, and have gotten an A in every single one. I know what it takes to write an A paper, and I can train you to get to that level.
Please contact me if you have further questions. I have plenty of free time to tutor this summer and the coming year, so no need to be hesitant. Hi there.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I took Differential equations when I was an undergrad at Caltech, in my freshman year. I received a B in that course. Since then, I constantly solve first order and second order differential equations in physics classes so I am well acquainted with them in theory and practice. Like other math subjects, I also tutor differential equations for the math department.
I took Linear Algebra at CU Boulder and received an A in the subject. Linear Algebra is used extensively in undergraduate quantum mechanics, so I used linear algebra applications in these classes. Linear Algebra is also one of the classes I tutored as a tutor in the math department.
