Math and Physics Tutor
Former Physicist; Aspiring Data Scientist
I am a physics, math, and astronomy tutor.
As a teacher, I have worked as a lab instructor for 6 years as a graduate teaching assistant, followed by a year of volunteering in online forums, and more than two years of professional tutoring. I enjoy teaching because it is something that really makes a difference to students dreams and success, and where I get to do something I love, sharing that knowledge and helping others.
15+ years research in physics and astronomy,
10+ years scientific programming,
8 years teaching
Studying Data Science: part time in the Data Quest certificate program as work and health allow.
