I have been tutoring or teaching since I was in the 8th grade. I have always been drawn to the physical sciences and I love sharing my knowledge with anyone who will listen. My teaching mentors are Richard Feynman, who won the Nobel prize in Physics, my PhD advisor George Olah, who won the 1994 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, and my Postdoctoral advisor Donald Cram, who won the 1987 Nobel prize in Chemistry. As a footnote, my graduate school professor in Quantum Chemistry, Arieh Warshel, won the 2013 Nobel prize in Chemistry. I include these people in my statement to convey that I have been taught by some of the best scientific minds in history. All of these men had an astounding love and passion for their fields and they deeply inspired and very much intensified my own love and passion. They were all incredibly gifted teachers. During my time with them, I wanted to be like them, a great teacher.
