Adam is a 2nd year graduate of CU Boulder with a BS in physics from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. His teaching career reaches back to high school when he began tutoring courses ranging from Algebra to Pre-calculus. During his undergraduate studies he started to realize the effectiveness of student TAs and the value of peer teaching. In his junior year he became an undergraduate teaching assistant for Physics II for two semesters which lead to a job as an undergrad TA for Quantum Physics I and Electromagnetic Theory the following year. Concurrently he conducted research for the Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment requiring the knowledge of multiple computer languages and analysis techniques.  

In September 2014 Adam arrived in Colorado to participate in the Graduate Physics Program at CU Boulder. This required him to TA both physics 1110 and 1120 for his first year in graduate school. He has full knowledge of both courses having had to teach, grade, and proctor for exams. The philosphy behind his teaching is understanding the fundamentals is key to gettting a grasp on the larger, more complicated picture. There will be no assumptions or expectations of past knowledge in any subject tutored. Analogies to everyday experiences and logical reasoning will be used frequently during sessions and if struggling with more mathematical concepts background on these subjects will be reviewed or taught in necessary detail.
