I'm a proud Colerain High School and University of Cincinnati alum who completed a Masters' degree in physics in 2016. My interests outside of academia include traveling, BMX, drumming, music, skiing, photography, videography, and anything adventurous. Throughout my four years of graduate school, I worked as a Teaching Assistant, which gave me the pleasure of teaching physics courses (lab and recitation), tutoring, and assisting in lecture classrooms. Since then, my tutoring experience has expanded to include a variety of subjects in science and math.
I've always pondered why and how do things work the way they do, and I gladly help others do the same. I nurture confidence in learning by helping the student figure out what questions to ask in order to piece information together to solve problems. This directly benefits the student's approach in the future. When students have conceptual trouble, I reword definitions and use comparisons to get the point across and make it stick. I cater to the student's learning style and refuse to give up until better understanding of the material is achieved. I find the breakthroughs my students have when they grasp concepts to be personally rewarding.
