NC STAT UNIVERSITY (PhD)
I am a graduate physics student studying theoretical physics with a focus on quantum field theory and path integrals at NC State University. I have had a few scholarships to study at Harvard math department and physics department at Princeton last year. Currently, I am busy with research and learning data analysis science to seek for more practical grounds to apply all the theory I've learned in school these long years. I have dual B.Sc. degrees in math and physics.
In college, I tutored students in mathematical physics and classical and electromagnetic theory courses and had the experience of being a TA for a graduate level mathematical physics class for two years in a row.
I was the TA for PY 205 Physics for Scientists and Engineers 1 (SCALE-UP Version) in my first year and it was truly a unique experience due to the class environment. I've been a volunteer tutor at physics tutor center for a year now and help students with PY 205-11 and advanced physics. My main research topic is theoretical physics so that tells you a lot.
I have learned it in high school and speak it fluently.
As a theoretical physicist, I know the struggles of students in learning physics based on certain abstract rules and mathematical constructions and formulas, which sound confusing and non-instructive to less sophisticated readers. My approach is similar to that of SCALE-UP. I help students work on their problem solving skills as well as their understanding of simple concepts through more visual examples that are easy to demonstrate on a board or with small tools accessible to everyone.

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.
