I like to give my students space to work on their own, but be ready and available the moment that there's any confusion. It is my firm belief that students learn best from within, and teachers are but vessels to facilitate that learning. As an instructor, I have been available to my students night and day to help them understand any material on which they feel deficient.
I am a PhD student at Florida Institute of Technology for Space Sciences. I have a strong background in Astronomy, Astrophysics, Mathematics, and Physics. I have been tutoring for the past 8 years, including 2 years tutoring those with developmental disabilities. I have been an instructor in the classroom for the past 6 years, and have led my own physics lab for the past 2 years.
