Sonja

what makes her an awesome tutor

I’ve always loved math and science! I love how it all fits together in the end. I had a physics teacher in high school tell me, “Biology is really chemistry, and chemistry is really physics, and physics is a lot of math. So really the whole world is physics and math.” I’ve always loved this saying! I love sharing all this knowledge with others and I hope to get others as excited about these subjects as I am. Growing up with two younger siblings, my patience skills have been tested and perfected over the years, so I love finding new and intriguing ways of explaining seemingly complex math and science problems to students!
