I love to learn! I will be attending Northwestern University and would love to help others learn physics and math topics!

Methodology

My teaching method is to first understand the needs of the student and their background, then try to work through problems step-by-step until they are proficient at the problems by themselves. With individual practice, they should be able to tackle any similar problems from then on!

Background

3 Year VEX Robotics Alumni, 2x Worlds division first seed and signature event winner. I'm deeply interested in physics and have a desire to improve my statistics knowledge as well. I graduated from Zionsville Community High School and will be attending Northwestern University this fall.

He is a principled, self-controlled, educated smart person. He just graduated from Zionsville High School with Summa Cum Laude Honors and will go to Northwestern University to pursue his mechanical engineering career. I think he will be a great Superprof tutor.

Kevin is one of my close friends and has helped me a lot over the years. Kevin is a very knowledgeable person who is good at explaining concepts in a way that is understandable and helpful. Personally, Kevin has helped teach me concepts in math, chemistry, and engineering, all while being super friendly and helpful. I really recommend Kevin to be a SuperProf member.
