I just moved here. So, I am starting cheap ($20/hr) to fill up my schedule. I'm pretty sure it is the cheapest rate around. I am a mathematical physics researcher (with degrees in both math and physics). I have been tutoring for 20 years. I tutor almost all undergraduate math and physics classes and some graduate courses.

Also, I am well aware of many different learning strategies as I have overcome extreme ADHD over the years (I am not even remotely as bad as I used to be), and over the past 5 yrs I have been using a wide variety of strategies to overcome my dyslexia and memory deficits. I have also been researching how to improve all aspects of learning ability in general for a long time. So, for any student, I can provide many options from the start and try alternatives as we go. And, I have a niche regarding students with learning disabilities. I am very keen on noticing ambiguities and misunderstandings in communication (and on handling them) in real time. I spent over ten years working in sales and bartending/table-waiting and management at these jobs. As a result of working full time at one job for at least a year while simultaneously sampling/cycling through 2-4 jobs at a time, I have worked over sixty of these types of jobs where building communication and interpersonal skills is incentivized. So, I am good at finding students' interests in an area (sometimes that they were not previously aware of) and keeping them engaged (I can repackage ideas/concepts in a light that is familiar/desirable with respect to their interests and experience). I am good at drawing analogies with other areas of study (this is an integral part of my future in category theory), summarizing at every step, and diagnosing what needs be elaborated. And, in each homework exercise, I provide multiple ways to solve the problem where possible. I stay aware of what level of technical language and concepts is over the student's head, and determining weaknesses in prerequisite knowledge and skills for the class content at hand. I am extremely patient, unassuming, approachable, good-humored and open-minded. As thorough as I am, I am aware of when I being redundant or time inefficient.

Education is extremely important to me. This is a huge part of why I am pursuing studies of applications of category theory (particularly the teachings of Professor Baez, and more particularly his teachings about teaching, and even more particularly in reference to how category theory can help). This also played an important role in my choosing to pursue the research I did at Caltech. I believe our education system is overdue for some serious updates. Educators are starting to teach calculus to low-income neighborhood grade school children. Areas of mathematics and physics that are currently spoken of as the most difficult to grasp, I am quite sure are being inadvertently and unnecessarily being made and/or mistaken as inaccessible, and one of my top missions in life is to help correct this. I hope this makes clear both how dedicated and confident I am in this regard.

As I said above, education is deeply important to me. But to clarify, this is not to say my passion is only focused on the education system. I am very dedicated to my students as well. I am very well aware of what it takes to succeed in academia and in industry. I have attended tons of professional development presentations, seminars, and panels (as part of my many research and/or scholarship programs), talked to many professors and professionals, and learned the nooks and crannies of "the system". I am well connected and have a lot of resources on and off campus. My intention is to help everyone I invest my time in to make aware of all the time-saving and many otherwise helpful things it took years for me to find out. Ultimately, I want all the people I have invested time into to succeed in major ways (as I know everyone can) not only for themselves, but for what I wish to accomplish in the far future, having this network of accomplished individuals in vastly different areas will be of great value (especially via category theory for those who pick it up).
