ExperienceOne day I was reading a chapter about the Biot-Savart law from an old physics textbook. After an awkward process of digesting a flock of line integrals and vector operators, I realized that the powerful information written before me was meaningless if I didn't find a way to eventually pass it on. Teaching gives me the opportunity to share my knowledge about the Universe with a student willing to sacrifice their time to learn more about the world we inhabit. Most individuals firmly grasp the idea that there is only one teacher in a tutoring session. Maybe that’s true for most people, but I like to think that a tutoring session has two teachers. While I, the teacher, relay the information that the student wishes to know, the student is interactive and in the process instructs me on how to be a better educator.
Physics and chemistry have fascinated me from a young age. As a little boy, I would read books about astronomy and assemble radios with kits that my father gave me. Naturally, high school gave me the opportunity to explore my interests through classes like AP Biology, AP Chemistry, and AP Physics. My competitive edge motivated me to participate in events like regional science bowls (NSB), mathematics tournaments (MAO), and various physics competitions (Siemens, AAPT, NYAA). Aside from being fluent in the theoretical aspect of science, I also have abundant experience with the practical side of it. As of 2016, I've been a member of the American Association of Variable Star Observers--a society dedicated to estimating the variable brightness of certain stars in the night sky. Last September, I submitted research I conducted on black hole Cygnus X-1 and its companion star HDE 226868 to the Siemens Science and Mathematics Competition. In class, conducting labs was always my favorite activity since it allowed me to gain pragmatic understanding of everything I was learning. I look forward to helping you with both the practical and theoretical sides of science as I believe that both are equally and fundamentally important.
Mathematics is the framework that makes subjects like physics, chemistry, and economics objective, rather than biased or dependent on personal opinion. I think that having a strong ability to apply math to the real-world is incredibly useful since it allows one to interpret and visualize the world in an unbiased, critical way. Throughout high school, I competed in math tournaments at a regional and state level via Mu Alpha Theta--a mathematics honor society. I have taken courses like AP Calculus BC, AP Calculus AB, Pre-Calculus, and Algebra II that should equip me to tackle a wide variety of mathematical exercises. I look forward to helping you solve your problems (pun intended)!

HobbiesI am a huge soccer fan. I support the Uruguayan national team and FC Barcelona. Aside from soccer, I especially enjoy basketball and swimming, although I generally like almost every sport. I would say that I'm an outgoing and interactive person. I love engaging with the student that I'm tutoring and my level of interaction will show you just how passionate I am about the subjects that I'm teaching!
