Arpi Grigorian is currently working as an undergraduate research assistant at NIST [National Institute of Standards and Technology]. She is taking this Fall semester off to focus on research, and will be a senior physics major at CU Boulder when she resumes her studies in Spring 2015.

She has a year of experience tutoring grade school students, and knows that the biggest challenge to learning physics is the difficulty of keeping track of all the math and missing the core concept. She breaks down the problem to make it as easy as possible, and then works with the student step by step to solve it. She loves teaching science and math, and will work her hardest to make sure the student understands the concepts.

Also some fun facts: The lab group she id working with at NIST specializes in telescope detectors, most notably to detect the Cosmic Background Radiation.

Jameson is a Senior Math major at CU. His experience includes being a Learning Assistant in Calculus I in the Fall of 2012 and over a year tutoring with the Buff Tutor program, as well as helping countless other students in Math and Physics. Although his major doesn't show any reason to take Physics or Chemistry, he recently took Organic Chemistry and has taken 3 courses beyond entry level Physics. He understands that sometimes the best person to teach the material is a student who just went through the course. Still an undergrad, Jameson recognizes that this is a great opportunity to help his fellow students in a way that graduate students and professors wouldn't be able to.

Matt is a current senior undergraduate student with an affinity for the Spanish language and culture. His love for Spanish began in high school when he had the opportunity to travel to Mexico and be immersed in the culture. Matt immediately had a desire to understand more about the people and history of Latin America, and this thirst for knowledge has continued to grow for the last 8 years. This led Matt to pursue a degree in Spanish and Portuguese language/culture where he currently holds a 3.4 GPA. This knowledge has provided him with the chance to open up career paths as well as create more opportunities for traveling experiences with which he can continue to learn. Matt has already had the good fortune of traveling to Mexico (3 separate locations), Brazil, and living in Costa Rica to solidify his understanding of the language and culture. In addition to this experience, Matt worked as a Spanish elementary teacher and high school TA, which provided great insight into the necessity for simplicity and accuracy when creating easily understandable lessons. He hopes to provide you with the assistance you need to get the most out of your Spanish class experience!
