I have multiple years of experience tutoring math and physics. During my undergraduate degree, I worked part-time through my university as an algebra tutor and teaching assistant for 3 years. I also served as a teaching assistant in a college physics course at my university for 2.5 years. During my senior year, I worked in a position tutoring groups of college students in various courses such as calculus, finite mathematics, principles of mathematical reasoning, atoms to galaxies, and college...

I have multiple years of experience tutoring math and physics. During my undergraduate degree, I worked part-time through my university as an algebra tutor and teaching assistant for 3 years. I also served as a teaching assistant in a college physics course at my university for 2.5 years. During my senior year, I worked in a position tutoring groups of college students in various courses such as calculus, finite mathematics, principles of mathematical reasoning, atoms to galaxies, and college algebra. All of the tutoring stated above was done in person.

Since acquiring my bachelor's of science degree in physics, I have started to pursue a master's of science in biomathematics. Part of my responsibility as a graduate student this past year was to work as a teaching assistant for two 100-level courses: principles of mathematical reasoning & beginning statistics. One of them was an in-person course, while the other was online. Additionally, I am responsible for being knowledgeable of all 100-level math courses at my university, as part of my assistantship is to be available to tutor these subjects for a given number of hours per week. On top of the tutoring I do through my university, I have also worked as an online tutor in algebra, physics, and calculus since graduating with my bachelor's degree. I enjoy teaching because I see it as a very rewarding job, especially in technical subjects such as math or physics. In my experience, learning these subjects can be challenging, and it feels empowering when something finally clicks after struggling with it for so long. As a tutor, I like to be there for the click so that I can discuss with the student why this skill or idea might be important toward a deeper understanding of something.

I have succeeded in courses at the college-level that require use of all math subjects I offer tutoring for. During my bachelor's in physics, I earned a minor in mathematics and graduated with a 3.6 GPA. During my master's in biomathematics so far, I have earned a 3.8 GPA.
