B.Sc. Astronomy with minor in Mathematics graduate. One year of tutoring experience and research experience as undergraduate.

Methodology

Find strong points and build from there. Make the student understand and reason the process instead of memorizing gives better results. As with sports and music, practice, practice, and more practice makes us better at mathematics and science in general.

Background

Some of the courses I took in college are astronomy, astrophysics, classical and modern physics. Mathematics: algebra, trigonometry, pre-calculus, calculus, differential equations.
I have a year of experience working as a tutor for Mathematics and Physics.
I have a year of experience in astronomical research as an undergraduate.
