I have experience in volunteering as a tutor at Granby High School.

I have also won One silver award at the National Robotics Challenge. The relevant classes I have taken at Bridgewater College include General Physics 1 and 2, General Chemistry 1 and 2, College Algebra, Calculus 1,2,3 and 4, Modern Physics, and other history and writing courses. I have expert experience in writing scientific papers and lab reports. I have competed in 3 university physics competitions and held one internship at MAERSK Line for analysis and Engineering. I want to be a tutor to help people who are struggling Academically and provide information to make life easier in school. I've had it difficult through school, having to teach myself the material most of the way rather than being tutored. I personally know how hard it can be to have low motivation to study for certain material. Sometimes teachers only teach and explain material a certain way, and that way may not be the way some kids understand. All information can be taught with a different approach, its a matter of finding and creating your way to an understanding that you comfortable with.

I like to play and volunteer in Tennis. For the past 3 years I have coached tennis to adults and kids above age 7. I personally believe that taking care of the environment is crucial and support the "going green" initiative. My interests lie in building models mostly cars, ships, rockets, and spacecraft basically anything I like no matter the difficulty I will attempt it, reading and learning about space, playing video games mostly strategy games, general and technical drawing, and studying. I love learning new things about technology especially our motivation to achieve a human settlement on Mars. I aspire to one day become an astronaut. Whether that happens or not I plan to work on the vehicles and craft that go into space. As you can guess I am a science fiction enthusiast: what was once known as science fiction is now emerging in reality and will continue to for as long as a passion for curiosity exists.
