About Brandon

I am currently attending Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) to earn my Masters of Engineering in Sustainable Engineering. This past May I graduated from the State University of New York at Geneseo (SUNY Geneseo) with a Bachelors of Science in Applied Physics. To be perfectly honest, school has never come easy for me. Unlike a lot of my gifted/talented peers, I had to spend extra time and put forth more effort to understand material. Although time consuming this proved to be very useful in my college career. Not only did I develop techniques and methods for studying/learning material, but I was able to apply these skills across all subjects. I find school to be a very rewarding experience. I understand the frustration among students to enjoy school when they're grades aren't satisfactory, hence my goal is to try to help students to the best of my ability.

In the past I have tutored students and have even been tutored myself in a few subjects. The main thing I've learned from this experience was the understanding that not everyone learns the same. Certain students retain information more efficiently using certain methods that other students may find useful. I think the key to having an effective tutoring session is to really understand the person you are tutoring. While I was tutored in certain subjects I developed an understanding of methods that work for me and those that do not. Building this type of student-teacher relationship is crucial and it's something I hope to be able to provide to all of my students.

Courses I've taken and done well in include: Calculus I - III, Proofs, Linear Algebra, Probability and Statistics, Ordinary Differential Equations

Courses I've taken and have done well in include: Analytical Physics I - IV, Quantum Mechanics I, Classical Mechanics, Statistical Thermodynamics, Atomic and Nuclear Physics

I have been involved in photography since I was 13 years old. However within the past couple years I have taken this medium much more seriously and have been very critical of my own work. I don't have any professional education in photography but I know a lot about cameras and how to 'properly' take photos. I've used a variety of DSLRs aechnnd point and shoot cameras, however as of lately my passion has been film photography (35mm). I use newer film cameras and older film cameras as late as the 1970s. I feel confident enough to be able to teach people the basic skills of photography and familiarizing oneself with camera technology.

I really enjoy working with students of all ages. I understand a lot of the difficulties students have in a variety of subjects and I feel confident in my ability to effectively pass on knowledge.
