Bio

I am a Physics major at the University of California, Santa Barbara. I've loved math and science almost all my life and since I was thirteen years old I have wanted to study physics. My goal is to earn a PhD, conduct research in the field of Quantum Computing, and work in academia.

I am a Physics major at the University of California, Santa Barbara. I've loved math and science almost all my life and since I was thirteen years old I have wanted to study physics. My goal is to earn a PhD, conduct research in the field of Quantum Computing, and work in academia.

I have tutored since high school when I realized how helpful it is to have a one-on-one educational support system. During the summer between 10th and 11th grade I attended a Pre-Calculus summer course at a high school a few miles away from my own high school. My goal was to qualify for AP Calculus during my junior year so I needed to complete this Pre-Calculus course with top marks and get a letter of recommendation from the teacher. It took about an hour every morning to walk to that class, but it was worth it. The class was significantly small, about ten people, and so I was able to talk with the teacher on a one-on-one basis regularly. This was my first engaging experience with an educator. With her help and hard work, I enrolled in AP Calculus BC and passed the AP test with a score of 5. Through this experience I saw how beneficial it was to have that close, engaging relationship with an educator and I promptly began tutoring.

I taught my first student in Geometry and since then I have tutored Physics, Chemistry, Pre-Calculus, Algebra, Trigonometry as well as SAT Math. I found that tutoring was not only enjoyable but bolstered my own understanding and enjoyment of the topics I taught. The opportunity to teach math and science gives me the chance to help students in the same way that I was helped that summer and see them move forward.

I believe that the best way to learn, is to practice. In math and science this means doing problems. The more problems one solves, the more one will understand the material. As a tutor, I'm here to guide students through the material and provide support when stumped on a problem. That support looks like making suggestions for starting problems, giving hints when the student does not know how to proceed, and teaching problem solving strategies.

I want to help students as much as possible and welcome any feedback and suggestions from parents and students. Reach out to me at any time and I will always provide a quick response. Please contact me with any questions or if you would like to schedule a lesson.

Wonderful tutor.

My daughter had AP Calculus tutoring. Noah was a great tutor, patient and knew his material. I would highly recommend him to other students. We are going to book him again!!
