About Maya


Bio

Hi! I have a B.S. in physics from the University of Northern Colorado. This is a career change for me - I was in sales and marketing for a few years before going back to pursue my love of science. I absolutely understand the fear of math and physics that so many students have - that's part of why I didn't do physics first!

Pre-Covid I worked at the UNC Tutoring Center and held group sessions for Astronomy, Intro Physics, and Calculus. I also tutored individually in a wide range of intro math...

Hi! I have a B.S. in physics from the University of Northern Colorado. This is a career change for me - I was in sales and marketing for a few years before going back to pursue my love of science. I absolutely understand the fear of math and physics that so many students have - that's part of why I didn't do physics first!

Pre-Covid I worked at the UNC Tutoring Center and held group sessions for Astronomy, Intro Physics, and Calculus. I also tutored individually in a wide range of intro math and science classes. The intro classes are my favorite to tutor/teach - I love the feeling I get when a student suddenly "gets it!"

I was also a physics lab teaching assistant and helped students understand the experiments they were performing. I have tutored a lot of pre-med students who need to take algebra-based physics I and II.

I've specifically tutored college algebra, calculus, discrete math, and linear algebra for students in math classes, as well as helping with math comprehension in physics courses. I've recently started tutoring high school math as well including geometry, algebra, calculus, pre-calculus, chemistry, and AP Physics.

If you think you can't, I promise you can. My philosophy is to always meet students where they are which sometimes means going back a few steps to understand the basics before we are able to move forward. I love a growth mindset philosophy that anyone can learn anything!

Trigonometry

I had a love/hate relationship with trigonometry while in college and only really learned to love trig once I started tutoring it! Take that as a sine (pun intended) that you can learn to love it too!

This is one of my favorite subjects to tutor! I especially love tutoring introductory astronomy - this material can be really intimidating if you're not familiar with some of the physics behind the concepts, but that's why I'm here! I have been an astronomy teaching assistant and have tutored this subject for over 3 years.
