In my opinion, people learn the best by doing the right kind of practice. Working on something that intimidates you without knowing where to start can be discouraging. That's where I come in. As a physics tutor, I can provide the scaffolding necessary to help my students feel safe exploring and try different approaches if the first one doesn't work.
I earned my Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from the University of Michigan. I went on to earn my Master of Science in Chemistry at Cornell University. I was a Teaching Assistant at Cornell and a volunteer tutor as I worked towards my Ph.D. I have also been a professional physics tutor for a couple of years.
I'm a great physics tutor not because of my understanding of Physics, which is comprehensive, but because of my understanding of physics students. I find that often there are gaps in math fundamentals that are causing students to struggle with physics, so I help address those first of all. I encourage my students when they make mistakes to learn from them and try again.
