I am very patient and work hard to make sure the student understands the information without feeling frustrated and hopeless. I'm friendly and can make you feel more confident about many areas of math and physics! Whatever class you need help in, I can help!
-Tutoring kids for 2 years while in school. My focus was astrophysics research but was involved with many outreach programs talking to and mentoring students.
-I have taught a class of 25 students in physics lessons
-People after my lessons and speaking engagements feel more confident in pursuing science because of how encouraging I was.

Sydney is one of the most passionate scientists I have every met. Her joy in science permeates through her teaching style in a way that excites students to learn. Sydney takes the time to get to know her students in order to optimize her time spent teaching for the benefit of the student. She is trustworthy because she truly cares about science and understands its dire importance. She is a great resource!
