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.

Aroob was training for three years to be a math and chemistry high school teacher before she decided she wanted to do research first and joined the PhD program at CU Boulder. During those three years, she had to attend pedagogical seminars monthly (at least) to teach her how to teach science and math to those that struggled with it, and how to make abstract concepts more universally understood. She also was part of the EFE (Early Field Experience) program that placed her in a high school chemistry class, and a middle school Algebra class, each for 1 semester. In those semesters, she observed some of the best teachers in the Fresno Unified School District teach, and she herself was responsible in teaching at least one lesson in each semester, with feedback from her students. Aroob was also a TA for GenChem 1 in Fall 2014/Spring 2015/Summer2015, as well as Gen Chem 2 Summer 2015/Fall 2015.  She enjoyed having her own classes for a semester and helping them succeed. She recently won the Teaching Excellence Award in the Chemistry department.

Aroob has informally tutored many of her friends in almost every STEM subject she has taken, as she did pretty well in those subjects, earning A's (in some cases, the top score or second best- she is competitive). She has also formally tutored a student for 6 years in Arabic and Math, following her from middle school to high school. Besides that, she was a Sunday School teacher for 6 years, she has helped lead programs to introduce math and science to thousands of elementary and middle school kids in the San Joaquin Valley via programs called Circuit Science and Stellar Science, and she overall loves to teach, and enjoys it very much when people learn, and will do everything in her power to get the student that far.

Blake has 6 years experience private tutoring math, statistics, and physics. During these years, Blake has specialized in Calculus 1 and Physics 1 (Mechanics), but feels very comfortable teaching a wide variety of courses.

Blake spent one year tutoring University of Colorado D1 athletes at the Dal Ward Athletic Center. He tutored mostly Calculus 1, but was also assigned students in Quantitative Reasoning, Pre-calculus, Calculus 2, Trigonometry, Statistics, Physics 1, and General Engineering. After one semester, Blake was promoted to head of the math lab, where any athlete in any math class could come with questions. On top of this, he was given nearly all the students enrolled in Calculus 1 due to a proficiency in teaching the subject.

Blake also specializes in preparing for the ACT Math test (scored a 35) and the AP Calculus AB, Calculus BC, Physics B, and Physics C exams (received 5's on all exams).
