Meet the Tutors
My name is Jake Wagoner, and I am a physics major with a computer science minor. I
have been interested in physics and computers since I was very young. I’ve been programming
since my freshman year of high school, and I still enjoy it.
My relationship to the subjects I want to tutor is one of full involvement. I love the way that computer science and physics can interact and mesh so well. My dream job is one that combines the two of these in a novel way. Hopefully, this will have something to do with astronomy and/or astrophysics, as this is the PhD I will be pursuing.

My name is Maddy Breach, and I am a sophomore studying a custom major combining computer
science, political science, and business. After college, I am looking at going into
crime analytics/intelligence and am looking to attend a law school after a few years
in tech for cyber law and policy.
My interest in tech started with Lego robotics and developed into years of web design work around my small community. In high school, I designed graphics for all clubs and teams and have done work designing tattoos, painting, and innovating. I took a gap year to learn about sound engineering and work as an audio-tech, photographer, graphic designer, and stats admin on tour with a group of circuit riders. I spent a few years as a hip-hop dance instructor and taught all levels and ages (K–12), which has helped me grow as a teacher and a student.
I now work at Westminster as a student web developer and designer, a supplemental instructor for CMPT 201, and a high school computer science assistant. Last semester, I really enjoyed working with 201 students. One of my favorite things about tutoring is bringing a new perspective to students. Not everyone learns the same way—I will work with you to make sure you learn in a way you can grasp and understand.

My name is Olivia Midgley. I am a senior at Westminster with an economics major and
a math minor. I became interested in economics during my first semester at Westminster.
But, I still wanted to take math classes, so I tacked a bunch on and ended up having
enough credits to complete a math minor. I enjoy skiing (of course), rock climbing,
I am excited to tutor because I enjoy figuring out the answers to problems and helping people. I like math, and I think it’s a great thing to learn and relearn. One of my favorite parts about math is the sense of accomplishment I feel after finishing up a difficult assignment, and I hope to help others feel the same.
Courses Tutored: MATH 144, MATH 201, MATH 202, MATH 210, WCSAM 113, WCSAM 203
My name is Wynter Mindnich. I am a senior computer science major at Westminster. I
am 21 years old, and I have a dog named Toby. My favorite activities are snowboarding,
rock climbing, and cooking.
I make a good tutor because I have taken the required classes and I comprehended the material well. I also enjoy re-learning information and see tutoring as a way to refresh and refine STEM knowledge. I feel the same way about grading; it gives me a reason to do something I’ve already learned. Both tutoring and grading feel a bit closer to real-life work than schoolwork.
