About Me

Experience Summary

Began as a Teaching Assistant (TA) in the Michigan Technological Universities (MTU) physics department as a physics lab TA for 3 years. Then I helped develop an Astronomy Lab and was the lab TA for a year. I then was a TA for a large lecture physics class for engineering students where I helped students on a 1-1 basis and helped the professor manage the class. In my final years as a Masters student at MTU, I helped run the online astronomy class and was the TA, grader, and developer of the assignments. Since moving to the University of Utah, I have been a TA for another large lecture class where I ran smaller sections for students to come and ask questions and get homework help. I have also been an astronomy tutor.

Teaching Style

Students should come to me with problems, questions, and having tried to understand the material first. Questions are important to me because they help give a sense of where you are getting confused and stuck. Physics and Mathematics are difficult, and there is no such thing as a stupid question. Ideally, students will do reading, and then work through concepts and problems with me, where I help when stuck and point out mistakes.

My Hobbies

Reading, Computers, Physics, Astronomy
