I am simply a tutor seeking to help people learn concepts. I've argued with enough of my teachers and professors during math classes to understand how frustrating math can be. I tutored my peers at Iowa State University, and I'm hoping to branch out. I've learned and taught high-level calculus, classical physics and light, computing concepts, and logical principles. I've done this for 2 years now, with good feedback.

I focus on helping students gain a conceptual understanding of the mathematical objects they encounter rather than the usual mechanical approach taught in schools. For my teaching efforts, I was awarded a Teaching Excellence Award from Iowa State University during my time in graduate school. The best feeling in the world is when a student finally gets over their fear of mathematics and starts enjoying it for the first time.
