#### Education

PhD in quantum theory from the C.N. Yang Institute for Theoretical Physics.BS degrees in Applied Mathematics and Engineering Physics from University of Colorado, Boulder (Magna Cum Laude).

#### Experience

I have ten years of tutoring experience as college and high-school level tutor, including three years work as a highly-rated teaching assistant in mathematics and physics (In my last year teaching, I was the top-rated TA in the university). I also have four years of specialized training from the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science about how to help nonscientists understand technical subjects.I speak English as my native language and have very good communication skills. I believe that when you're hiring a tutor you need someone who can EXPLAIN the problems to you, not just someone who can do the problems themselves.

I believe in concept-first education. You shouldn't have to memorize any more information than necessary. I'll help you understand WHY the equations and formulas apply so that when it comes time for you to do it on your own, it seems natural and instinctive.

Group discounts available for multiple students studying for the same class at the same time.

#### Hobbies

I love movies, playing tennis, and listening to the Beatles. I'm a diehard Denver Broncos fan but won't hold it against you if you cheer for the 49ers (but the Raiders are a different story).#### Preferred Subjects
