ExperienceDuring my two years as a TA for the UNC Physics Department, I taught mechanics with and without calculus to over 200 students. I consistently got wonderful feedback from them and received the department's Outstanding Undergraduate TA award spring '12. I also worked with 10 private students in physics, math, and SAT. All of them made amazing improvements! Looking back, I've grown up in a family of teachers and have taught since I can remember, helping friends proof papers and crack tough problems.
I scored 5s on 11 AP exams (Calc BC, Phys B, Phys C, Stats, Spanish Lang, Spanish Lit, European Hist, US Hist, Music Theory, English Lang, English Lit);
2380 on SAT (800 verbal, 800 writing, 780 math); and
98th percentile on GRE (167 verbal, 169 quantitative, 5.5 on writing).
Those scores don't matter to me beyond the doors they open and course credits they earned. I enjoy learning and I enjoy teaching. I love interacting with people. If I don't know the answer, I admit it and will search for it later. I'm happy to tutor any physics course through introductory modern physics, in addition to any math course up to Differential Equations, foreign languages, writing, and music (theory, voice, piano).
HobbiesI love music: singing/playing, listening, composing, researching. I also practice yoga several times a week and enjoy long bike rides with friends on crisp Saturday mornings. My fiancée and I love to cook for friends and family. When we're not preparing/eating food, we devour books.
