I hail from Michigan, the son of a high school physics teacher. I’m currently an undergraduate student in Princeton, studying physics like my father. My other interests in school are Japanese Language and Constitutional Law. After I graduate, I plan on using my physics education to study plasma physics at graduate school, in order to develop fusion energy.
Why do I like tutoring? I like to help people. The student has a problem that they don’t understand their school subject, and I have some tools to help with that problem.
Why do I like tutoring? It’s for the light in the student’s eyes when they finally get it. It’s akin to the kind of joy when kindling a fire, when the sparks finally catch onto the paper scraps.
Why do I like tutoring? I like to see the student grow as a person. Learning from a tutor is completely different than learning from a computer because the tutor is a human being. And it’s a joy for me to offer any advice I have, being a few years down the academic road, and to accompany the student on their journey.
