Bio

I help students understand the fundamentals of math and physics so that they can crush it. It isn't enough to be able to blindly apply a solution. Tests are designed to identify that, and I teach to triumph that.

I have been tutoring informally (2+ years) since high school, originally working with the people around me in math. As time went on I took a more and more active role, and in college was selected as a tutor for the math and physics departments (2 years more). I graduated with a...

I help students understand the fundamentals of math and physics so that they can crush it. It isn't enough to be able to blindly apply a solution. Tests are designed to identify that, and I teach to triumph that.

I have been tutoring informally (2+ years) since high school, originally working with the people around me in math. As time went on I took a more and more active role, and in college was selected as a tutor for the math and physics departments (2 years more). I graduated with a BS Physics, 3.45 GPA, and subsequently worked as an engineer.

I have experience tutoring in Algebra 1-2, Precalculus, Calculus, Physics (HS and College). If you're looking for someone with experience and knows what they're talking about, then let's do it.

4+ years tutoring math. Of that 2 years formally, 2+ with fellow classmates.

Math has been a part of my everyday life. I know how to do it, I like it, and I know how to teach it.
Classwork beyond Calc III: Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, Complex Analysis.

2+ years tutoring physics. Some formally, more with fellow classmates.

Physics is how I like to understand the world around me, and I like to talk about it.
Coursework beyond Physics II: Modern Physics, Electronics, Thermodynamics and Statistical Methods, Electricity and Magnetism I-II, Advanced Lab, Quantum Mechanics I-II.

Precalculus,

Precalculus

Precalculus is a fun one to teach, and is foundational for college level math and sciences. I'm very comfortable in pre calc. I've been informally tutoring it since high school, and formally as a college tutor. I'm here to help students lock in their fundamentals, enhance their test taking ability, and get good grades.
SAT Math,

SAT Math

SAT math is a particularly tricky test that requires solid understanding of math, as well as test taking strategy. Luckily, that's what I teach. As a physics major I have experience in breaking down problems to find solutions. As a lifelong tutor I have experience in transferring that knowledge and framework.
Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Prealgebra
