Additional:I am open to tutoring anything that I have taken or know (elementary school through upper division). Some mathematicians are research focused, however I am teaching focused and spend way too much time thinking about the best way to present math.

Experience:I have been tutoring professionally for 2 years, but I have been helping teach fellow classmates math and physics concepts since middle school. I also have over 3 years of experience as a camp counselor, which has given me plenty of practice both in working with kids and young adults as well as in reading signs for when a break is needed or if there is misunderstanding. My teaching philosophy is centered around the Socratic method of asking guiding questions to help the student figure the answer out on their own. Understanding which questions to ask when solving a problem is key to correctly applying the right formulas and techniques. In addition to teach problem solving skills, I do my best to share my passion for math. Sure, math is an extremely useful tool in many aspects of life, but it is also very beautiful by itself. I point out that beauty whenever I can in order to engage curiosity because it is much easier to learn about something that is both useful and interesting.
Additional:I tutor middle school through college lever math. My preferred method of contact is email, but if you are trying to set up a last minute meeting, you can text me. My preferred contact is

Available:Ongoing
Courses taken:MAT 21ABCD, 67, 22AB, 147, 25/125AB, 150A, 145, 115A
Experience:I am a PhD student in the Physics department, holding a masters degree in physics and bachelors degrees in physics and music. Math is a frustrating experience when none of the material seems to fit together, so I want to help you find the forest through the trees. My philosophy is to approach your tutoring sessions by filling in background knowledge, identifying current misconceptions, and then creating a lesson style that resonates with how you learn. For many students, this means leading you on a path through which you can discover WHY the math you're doing makes sense, making you prepared to tackle problems like those we practice and even others that seem alien at first.
Additional:I tutor any college math or physics (including all calculus, linear algebra, and intro physics), and I also have a lot of experience tutoring middle and high school students. Email, call, or text!
