I love teaching physics because I have always been a scientist at heart, from making trebuchets in the attic, to forcing a thermometer into boiling water to see if it passes 100 degrees centigrade before evaporating, in order to confirm the laws of the physical states of matter. I love spreading my love of physics to others, because it makes me happy when I can have elaborate conversations about simple machines with random individuals. In order to have those conversations, I must first break physics down to a level in which others can easily grasp its concepts. I do this by applying concept decomposition, which is explaining the theory behind all of the abstract formulas and laws that riddle classical physics. Let's stop letting physics surprise us, and let's surprise it when you ace your electrostatics test, and 'Flummox Physics'.
I've been teaching physics for almost three years now at the high school level in Chicago! I love it. For my college degree, I focused a lot on computational physics. As much as my classroom is packed with juniors and seniors for AP Physics, I thrive in a more intimate environment.
As a physics major, I'm quite confident teaching basic physics. I work to make sure students understand the fundamentals of the science, not simply to how to use equations. Ideally, the student will become more confident in his/her problem solving abilities, not just the knowledge of a specific branch of the science.
I have a Ph.D. in Physics from Vanderbilt University and received one of the most prestigious postdoctoral fellowships to carry out independent scientific and education research through the University of Chicago Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics. I am deeply passionate about teaching and have over a decade of experience. I truly believe that everyone is capable of learning physics. Science doesn't have to be scary or intimidating, you just need the right teacher!!!
