My name is Mark, and I am a third-year civil engineering student at Princeton University. I am currently taking the year off to pursue an internship in the local area. As I am an engineering student pursuing a minor in Computer Science, my areas of expertise are physics, math and computational programming.

When it comes to complicated subjects such as Math and Physics, I find it to be essential that students understand the basics. Most of the tricky questions you encounter in these courses are just different combinations of these basic concepts. Therefore, I approach these subjects by breaking down problems to help the student solidify a foundation. If students can conceptualize these more straightforward ideas, it will be much easier to build up to complexity. As a tutor, that be the next step. I would get the student to try different and more challenging problems that are varying makeups of the fundamentals. By doing this, I hope that the students not only further strengthen their knowledge on those basic concepts but all learn how to use them to obtain solutions to complex questions.
