Max S.

I am a senior studying physics at Santa Clara University. I'm in the honors program with a 3.6 GPA. I plan to work in the research field hopefully at Stanford for two years after graduation before continuing on to a PhD program. I would like to become a research scientist in nanotech energy storage. I am an eagle scout, was a captain on my waterpolo team in high school, and have served in various leadership positions at SCU's community service organization as well as the society of physics students. I tutored college prep freshman as a senior in high school and I have been tutoring lower income underperforming high school kids at Downtown College Prep in physics and math for around 6 months now. To start with I check in on what the student knows and what they're struggling with the most. In this portion I mostly let them vent about their frustrations. Out of this I usually am able to pick out generally what topics they've been working on, what the tough part has been for them. Then I do a short overview or the chapter, taking extra time to explain the things that I think our challenging and that they have expressed concern with. I then walk through a few example problems with them, prompting them for input and guiding them to the procedure for the problem from my previous explanation. I then allow them to try on their own to expose gaps in their understanding, work on those, then try more problems. I usually end with recommendations for things to do on their own.Fun Facts: I was born and raised in Santa Barbara and love the beach and hiking. I was on a robotics team in High School as a CAD designer. I have interned at National Institute of Standards and Technology, Stanford Physics Department, and Asylum Research.

Frog Tutoring says

In 2009, Roland Omene, a TCU bio-chemistry graduate, founded Frog Tutoring. The company originated in Fort Worth, TX, and is quickly expanding to cities all over the country. Frog Tutoring was founded under the belief that all students deserve tutoring regardless of age. We believe the first step in successful tutoring is finding the “right” tutor. That is why we only hire the top students and graduates from local colleges in the area. Each one of our well-trained tutors specializes in at least one area of expertise and is eager to aid in the academic success of the students they tutor. Frog Tutors are not just intelligent individuals, but role models who inspire their students to achieve success both academically and personally. - See more at: http://frogtutoring.com/about_us#sthash.ov47ISCO.dpuf
