A Nuclear Physicist with 10+ years of teaching Physics, residing in Detroit.

Methodology

I use audio-visual aids, animation etc. to clarify abstruse concepts and use problem-solving strategies, to build up creative and analytical skills. I encourage group discussions and problem-solving through peer interactions. This encourages my students to ask questions freely without any iota of doubt in understanding the content.
I teach physics to High Schoolers, Undergrads & test prep for MCAT, physics GRE, GRE Math etc. I have had several successful students who have become doctors, engineers, physicists etc.

Background

I am a researcher in Nuclear Physics at Wayne State University. I have a PhD in Physics from the University of Kentucky with a GPA of 3.7. Here as a TA I had average evaluation ratings of 3.5 (out of 4). I have 10+ years of teaching undergrads and high schoolers. Most of my students had great MCAT scores, Physics GRE scores and done very well in undergrad Physics.
