About Killian

I am currently an undergraduate student at the University of Richmond who is double majoring in Physics and Mathematical Economics with a minor in Math. I am currently an undergraduate research student in a biophysics lab work under a PhD recipient to analyzing fibrins in the body to see their mechanical properties and what those implications mean. I founded and currently run the Robotics Club on campus and have been successful in creating a start-up business for myself. With these abilities I can help your student and child not only in the subject, but beyond the subject in how they approach life and future academic challenges. I am knowledgeable in both the sciences and businesses as my majors transcend both areas and have many crossovers, which allows me to have experience with math and analysis beyond just a laboratory or math approach, and more to an overall problem solving approach.

I have helped many of my fellow peers in their classes among all spectrum, be it chemistry and physics all the way to accounting and economics. This helping nature spurred me to become a tutor, and I am currently in the works of becoming a tutor at the university where I will be able to help more students. When tutoring I first like to highlight the problem at hand as sometimes a student in math doesn't understand a concept because they have missed an important stepping stone for the next topic and when that is highlighted it sometimes helps them progress. I also have a lot of patience and willingness to help, as being a student myself, there are times when I don't understand something at first and from this I can see where frustration occurs. Since I can relate and understand these struggles as a peer and as a student, it makes it easier to understand and be patient to help a student.
