Hi! I was born in Irvine, CA and moved to Gilbert, AZ in 2008. In 8th grade, I became interested in chemistry but soon realized a year later that physics was more of what I really cared about. One thing led to another and in 2019, I finished college in 3 years and graduated Magna Cum Laude with a B.S. in physics from ASU.

Despite specializing in physics subjects, I've actually spent more time tutoring math than I have physics. I've tutored in different fields of the subject at the upper high school and collegiate level since 2015. The main subjects for which I offer services are Algebra II, Pre-Calculus, AP Calculus AB/BC, Calculus I/II/III, AP Physics I/II/C (Mech and E&M), and University Physics I/II/III.

Paul Erdős (world-renowned mathematician) championed the view that math was something best practiced in a small social context, as opposed to alone or in a large classroom setting. Tutoring has made it easy for me to see why he felt that. I've tutored a handful of people I've met through school, family friends, etc. and have enjoyed my experience so far. Meetings with tutees are something that I would find myself looking forward to each week and nothing is more encouraging than when I can tell that tutees reciprocate a similar feeling. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoy building personal relationships with them (this can make summer break a bittersweet moment) and I've found that many of the times where not only tutees but even I found math/physics most enjoyable were in a one-on-one setting.

I do my best to try to make learning as pleasant an experience as possible, and at the same time try to be vigilant of when boredom/monotony gets the best of us as it makes learning inefficient. If boredom/frustration is interfering with your ability to learn, it is advantageous to take an intermittent break. This is especially relevant for a long session. Additionally, I want tutees to be as comfortable around me as possible and unafraid to ask questions. Otherwise, it defeats a lot of the purpose of my assistance. I look forward to assisting you!
