what makes him an awesome tutor
Whenever I’m stuck on a problem, it isn’t enough that I get the right answer, I always want to understand the process required to get to that answer and I think that’s a very important mindset to have when learning new things. I also have a huge passion for physics and love sharing it with the world, science is so fundamental to how our modern societies function and it’s so important for all of us to at least understand the process of it regardless of where we go in life. Bringing that passion for learning to students paired with my love for explaining physics concepts will help me excel as a tutor.
Life Goal: Physics professor & science communicator.
Words to Live By: “To succeed, planning alone is insufficient. One must improvise as well.”
Favourite Mathematical Weapon: Explaining via analogies and relating concepts to everyday phenomenon. It’s a lot easier to understand concepts when there’s a goal in mind and a tangible example or visualization to relate it to.

What's the best thing about you? My love for physics and curiosity that leads me to engage new things that are out of my comfort zone with enthusiasm and an open mind.
I find physics equations, the math behind them, and their derivations to be the most beautiful things, it’s like a language that we can use to talk to nature.
