#### Experience

My philosophy is that although many people have been convinced that they are "not good at" math and science, this is not the case. In truth, nearly everyone can excel in math and science; they simply need to be given proper instruction. This is often difficult or impossible to do in a classroom setting, but is much more achievable in a one-on-one tutoring setting. Finding the right explanation to suit the right student is my particular fascination and joy. Helping students arrange information in their brains in the best way so they can access it usefully and coherently is the whole point of the thing.500+ hours tutoring experience as a private physics (and MCAT prep) tutor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Tutored mostly at university level, but also high school level.

#### Hobbies

I'm a big nerd, and I love sci fi and fantasy. Lord of the Rings, Star Trek, Star Wars, the whole deal. Board games are fun. I used to play a game with my grad school buddies that was a multi-player star ship bridge simulator, which was pretty awesome.I'm also badly addicted to puppies, and have been known to leave friends standing in the road if I see one that looks like the person might let me pet it. I have a dog and a guinea pig, and they keep me happy and sane.

I love sports, and have been active in ultimate frisbee, gymnastics, horseback riding, soccer, tennis, and softball.

I harbor a love of Broadway and musicals, and when I have the time, have been fortunate to be able to participate in a number of community theater productions in the past few years.
