Adam is a 5th year graduate student at CU Boulder who earned a BS in physics from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. His teaching career reaches back to high school when he tutored courses ranging from Algebra to Pre-calculus. During his undergraduate studies he realized the effectiveness of student TAs and 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 moved to Colorado to participate in the Graduate Physics Program at CU Boulder. He TAed both physics 1110 and 1120 his first year in graduate school. He has full knowledge of both courses having taught, graded, and proctored exams for each class. 
The philosophy behind his teaching is that understanding fundamentals is key to getting a grasp on the larger, more complex picture. There are 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 the subjects will be reviewed or taught in necessary detail.

Course: Econ 1078 Satisfactory Performance

Literally the only reason I was able to pass Economics with an A

Course: Phys 2170 Satisfactory Performance

Adam is a great tutor. I never brought him a question he wasn't able to answer. Highly recommended.

Course: Calculus 1300 Satisfactory Performance

Really helpful, especially with breaking down problems into sections to make them easier to solve
