Physics PhD graduate student specializing in quantum computing. Also a substitute teacher for high school math and sciences.After 4pm, a private tutor for physics, math and chemistry grades 9-12 and first and second year undergraduates.On weekends, teach ESL for immigrant newcomer adults in the government ESLA program.
Ph.D. in molecular biologyWorked my way to Big Pharma doing diagnosticsHated, hated, hated, hated the environment, the ethos, the management.Became a HS Science teacher teaching physics to normal students (Texas mandates all students must take physics)No teacher wiling to teach AP Physics C, so I did even though no background. Relearning basic calculus while teaching E&M was ... interestingEmbracing the AP ethos of open and welcoming classroom to all students willing to learn.Growing the AP Physics program: AP Physics C has tripled enrollment from 6 to 24 students in 3 years (Awesome kids, top of their class), AP Physics 2 went from 1 student to 26 in 3 years (Awesome kids, not top of their class), AP Physics 1 went from 120 to 200 in 1 year (wide range, from top of their class to first timers in an honor/AP class).Open tutorial hours from 6:30 am to first bell and then last bell to 4:45 pm. Work on stuff until about 6:30 before leaving school.
