About Adam

One of my greatest joys is helping others to learn new things. I've always been passionate about science, and I love to find new demonstrations and ways to explain concepts in a simple way to help us understand everyday life. Although I have not been teaching for many years, I have had the opportunity to teach and to tutor in a variety of settings. These settings include assisting high school and college students with physics, chemistry, biology, and algebra after school as well as using an online environment to tutor in English, math, social studies, and physics. I have also been teaching math and science at a variety of levels at the high school for the past three years in the classroom since the time I graduated college with a physics education degree.

My goal is to make science fun and understandable, and seeing students enjoy the subject makes everything worthwhile to me. I take what I do as a great opportunity that comes with a huge responsibility, and I fully embrace that. I like to do this by employing a variety of methods used to explain concepts and tailoring those methods for what works with each individual student, since students have a variety of background experiences and learning preferences. I try as much as possible to make ideas relatable and convey them in a hands-on way so that students can see how they apply to their lives.
