Profile

I am a high school student with extensive experience with math and science. I am very interested in physics, math, and astronomy, and am planning on perusing a career as an academic scientist and (hopefully) eventually a college professor.
I am (reasonably) friendly and good at explaining math and science concepts at all levels. I get the impression that the passion I have put into learning these subjects, especially math, from the ground up has given me insight to share that many teachers do not have.
I have experience working with both my classmates in high school and elementary school students. I am comfortable teaching math from the most basic introduction to numbers through second semester calculus. I can also tutor high school level biology, chemistry, physics, astronomy, and computer programming in Java.
I scored an 800 on the math SAT and a 790 on the evidence-based reading and writing SAT. I also scored an 800 on both the Math II and Physics SAT Subject Tests.
I hope to be able to help you succeed with your studies!

Wave Interference

Waves have the unique property that they can simultaneously exist in the same place. When two waves occupy the same space, their functions are added together. When waves have opposite signed values when they pass through each other, they cancel out. This is known as destructive interference. When waves have same signed values when they…

Integration by Parts

Integration by parts is an important and powerful integration technique that captures the idea of using the product rule of differentiation backwards. Let’s recall the product rule of differentiation: Now suppose we were trying to integrate an expression that could be written as g(x)*f'(x). We tried power rule, u-substitution, and scored our table of integrals,…
