I am currently a student at the University of Southern Maine majoring in both Physics and Computer Science. I began taking classes there at 16 and became a teaching assistant for Calculus-Based Physics in my third semester. In my fourth, I was a Subject-Based Tutor for the school tutoring Physics and Calculus.
Since I began attending USM, I have worked with a large number of students, from high school to college, to help them understand many various concepts of physics, computer programming, and math.
As I am a physics student, having an excellent understanding of complicated mathematics is essential. I took two semesters of Calculus-Based Physics while still in high school prior to having learned calculus, and I then became a teaching assistant for Calculus-Based Physics simultaneously with learning introductory calculus.
Since then, I have taken all three calculus courses offered at USM, including vector calculus, and have gotten very good at applying calculus to physics.
I have always had an exceptional understanding of physics, primarily kinematics. My first course at USM, when I was 16, was introductory physics, and I got above a perfect score in the class. Since then I have acquired a positively complete understanding of Special Relativity and have studied some of quantum mechanics.
I have a good general knowledge for how to complete tasks in computer programming. Whenever a problem is before me, I often solve it in nearly the first try, even if it is something as complicated as simulating orbital motion.
I have always been naturally good at explaining complicated things to other students. Since I love understanding all of these subjects, I also love to describe them. If someone is willing to listen, I may just accidentally teach someone Special Relativity. I have also found that, when I am helping someone, they always seem to be able to find the answer on their own if they are just asked the right questions.
