I recently received my MS in physics from Montana state, but during my undergrad, I specialized in chemistry, math, computer science and physics. I adapt my teaching to students of all levels, but I put emphasis on the concepts I teach, not necessarily the kinds of problems that are being worked.
During my time as a graduate student in physics, I was a teaching assistant for the department and I also spent 2 hours a week tutoring students who seeked supplemental assistance for their classwork. As an undergraduate student, I spent two years as a math tutor, and one semester as a teaching assistant. As a result of all of this experience, I have helped countless students feel confident and pass classes that they initially had problems with.
Work Experience Teaching Assistant - Montana State University, Bozeman - August 2015 to May 2017 During my master’s program at MSU, I taught several labs sections of Physics I and II. I guided students through the important concepts in physics through demonstration and analogy.
Teaching Assistant - Duquesne University - August 2014 to December 2014 I taught and graded two sections of Physics I lab, where I set up experiments to demonstrate and reinforce physical concepts.
Independent Software Developer - SAI Consulting, Pittsburgh, PA - March 2013 to June 2015 Working remotely, I developed a Microsoft Access application to aggregate field data from bridge inspections into a relational database. From there, it generates official reports that are sent to PennDOT. To accomplish this, I worked with a team of engineers and interpreted their feedback throughout development.
Intern - University of Maryland, Institute for Genome Sciences (IGS) - June 2014 to August 2014 I created an interactive web application, Virgil, to track usage and load of the local high performance computing (HPC) cluster. The application is currently used internally by the faculty at IGS to monitor long and short term management of the HPC cluster’s resources.
Math Tutor - Duquesne University -August 2012 to April 2014
Intern - Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center - June 2013 to August 2013 I restructured a program that solves the Schrödinger Equation to run in parallel, which significantly reduced that execution time for systems with large numbers of electrons. I accomplished this by working using NVIDIA’s CUDA technology to offload large portions of work onto a graphics processor.
Education Master’s in Physics - Montana State University, Bozeman (MSU) - August 2015 to May 2017 GPA: 3.72
Bachelor of Science in Physics - Graduated from Duquesne University 2015 - Pittsburgh, PA GPA: 3.43 Minors: Mathematics, Computer Science
