## About

I'm a twenty-five-year-old doctoral student in physics at the University of Iowa. I have four years of experience as a teaching assistant and five years of experience as a tutor. I have tutored students in dozens of different math and physics subjects.

I enjoy helping students of all ages achieve their academic goals. These subjects are often needlessly confusing, and I like to explain things as simply as possible.

## Frequently asked questions

### What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I like to start with a discussion about the student's academic goals and skills. We can then develop the lesson plan most appropriate for the student.

### What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I'm a doctoral student in theoretical physics at the University of Iowa. I specialize in quantum information and quantum computing. I have four years of experience as a teaching assistant and five years of experience as a tutor. I received bachelor's degrees in mathematics and physics from Kansas State University.

### Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I charge $25 per hour for lessons. 30 minute lessons are $15.

### How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching as a student at Kansas State University. I was a teaching assistant for an algebra course, and I was also a mathematics tutor for the university.

### What types of students have you worked with?

I have primarily tutored college students, but I enjoy working with younger students as well.

### Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I taught a college lab course this semester for physics majors. The material was interesting, and several students referred to me as "Corona With Lime."

### What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I would advise a student to find a teacher who is patient, encouraging, and invested. You also want a teacher who has a strong understanding of the material and can explain it clearly.

### What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Students should simply identify areas they want to improve and think about how a teacher could help them.
