After I graduated from college with my degree in Physics and Math, I moved to New York City to teach high school physics. Then after three years of teaching I returned to school full time as a physics PhD student at NYU, which is where I am currently. However I love teaching and have tried to continue during my studies. I know that physics has a reputation for being difficult, and many students don't understand how what they're learning is relevant to their lives. I think my favorite part of teaching physics is showing students that physics is really not as hard as some people make it out to be, and that they can see the things that they're learning around them all the time. I really enjoy tutoring high school students because it's the same material that I taught when I was teaching full time but now I can give my students the individualized, one-on-one attention that it can be hard to give in the classroom.
