Hi everyone, I'm Nathaniel! I graduated summa cum laude from Northwestern University with a BA in physics and now I'm at CU Boulder for graduate school in physics. While I was at NU I did both one-on-one and group tutoring in math and physics, and in high school I did one-on-one math tutoring. Those experiences and the training I received for them taught me that everyone learns differently and that I need to tailor my lesson plans to every individual that I work with. I also learned that tutoring, especially in subjects like math or physics, needs to be more dynamic than just reading out of a book or lecturing, so I try to make my lessons as fun and interactive as they can be. I understand that the topics I have tutored can be daunting, so I always make sure the students I work with first have confidence in their own capabilities of learning and understanding the topic. I also try to approach topics from interesting perspectives that make them easy to remember, and any practice problems I give will test understanding and not just boring memorization.

As I mentioned before, I have a combined five years of tutoring experience in both high school and college level math and physics. In sophomore and junior years in high school I tutored Algebra 2 and precalculus in one on one sessions with other high school students. Starting my second year in college I tutored Calculus 1, 2, and 3, as well as Physics 1, 2, and 3 on a drop in basis for individuals or small groups of all years. I also was a mentor in a semester long program where I would supplement the learning of groups of 2-8 students, also of varying years, in introductory physics classes with reviews of material and extra questions. I always try to help others in informal settings as well, because it helps me gain a firmer grasp on the fundamentals and I remember how I have always benefitted from discussions with people who understand material I might be struggling with. Because of these experiences and my field of study my math and physics skills have remained sharp, and I hope I can assist students at all levels with those skills. I can help with anything from pre-algebra, to AP physics, to college level quantum mechanics, so contact me if you think I'd be a good fit for your situation! I have always enjoyed helping people learn and hope to continue doing so.
