Science, Math, And Writing Tutor
I recently graduated from Carleton College with a degree in physics and am doing quantum physics research at Chapman University. As an undergraduate, I worked as a Writing Consultant for three years and a physics Problem Solving Facilitator for two years. Working with one-on-one with students on topics that I care deeply about was one of my most meaningful experiences in college. I found that working collaboratively on writing is a chance to connect deeply and find mutual joy in learning, transforming writing from a possibly daunting task to a fun collaborative experience. Similarly, as a physicist, I want to challenge the stereotype that science is difficult, impersonal, and isolating. Science and math provide rich opportunity for self-discovery and growth, and collaborative problem-solving reveals our hidden assumptions and ways of perceiving the world. As a physics tutor, I focus on developing intuition, familiarity, and excitement.
