Meet the Tutors
I am currently a sophomore pursuing a degree in theatre arts, focusing on performance. Besides theatre, my next favorite subject is math, and I really love calculus!
Courses Tutored: MATH 142, MATH 144, MATH 201, MATH 202
I am a physics major and computer science. I am currently a junior. Since I was a kid, I’ve wanted to be a physicist. That dream has not changed. My goals are to graduate from Westminster with my bachelor of science in physics and then go to grad school to get a PhD in physics with an emphasis on astronomy and astrophysics. The classes I’ve taken at Westminster have all been amazing for getting me closer to realizing that dream. I plan to use my computer science knowledge I’ve gained to automate the data collection and processing of my observational astronomy so that I can collect massive amounts of data and analyze it quickly.
Through all the classes I’ve taken, I’ve left with something I can put to work in my career. This is the reason I want to tutor students in these very same classes. I want to not only be able to give them the resources they need to succeed, but I want to learn from them as well. Engaging with different students from different backgrounds and with different perspectives will allow me to further increase the amount of tools I have at my disposal when it comes to being a successful physicist. I believe I have many skills and experiences which would allow me to excel in the tutoring role.
In high school, I tutored students in Algebra 2. I was the only tutor for it, and I had anywhere from 1–10 students depending on the day. Here, I learned how to talk to students in a way that made them feel comfortable asking questions. I found that this was the most important part of tutoring. If a student doesn’t feel comfortable, they won’t want to ask the questions they need answers to.
I feel very comfortable with my knowledge of physics, math, and computer science. In all of these classes, I felt a firm understanding of the subject material. Specifically, for computer science, I feel as though I could tutor any of the languages used thus far, be it Java, Python, C, C#, or assembly language. Although, if I’m being honest, I’m likely not the best resource for assembly programming help.
I feel that my people skills are sufficient to convey the learning material in such a way that it is easiest for each individual student to absorb best. Every student learns differently. I feel that I will be able to recognize these differences and adapt my tutoring accordingly.

I feel like tutors play a vital role in the learning process. I often have been confused or not completely following along in my classes, and going to a friend or professor has really helped me understand the concepts I was less sure about. I think that being a tutor and being able to see the development of concepts in students' heads because I helped them is an amazing reward all on its own. I have tutored my siblings throughout the years and helped them get through some hard subjects when it comes to math. I also have earned high grades throughout my academic career that I think qualifies me to be a tutor in these subjects. I also have received a certification in Software Development from the Ogden-Weber Technical College while in high school.

I’m currently a computer science senior who has a great passion for developing and programming. I have 3 years of experience studying computer science with 3 semesters of a 4.0 GPA and a 3.67 cumulative GPA.
With over 100 contributions on GitHub, I have various experience building projects using Java, Python, C#, Node.js, Spring, and MySQL. I also have experience with C, assembly language, Angular9, Linux, Android Studio, SQLite, and Unity Engine. As the founder of the Women in Computer Science Club, I have attended the Rocky Mountain Celebration of Women in Computing, the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing (with a GHC Scholarship), and the Silicon Slopes Tech Summit. I enjoy programming and computer science, as well as helping others achieve their success in computer science.
Courses Tutored: CMPT 201, CMPT 202, MATH 210, DATA 220
I am a computer science and math major; both of them are important and enjoyable to me. I love the logic beauty of math and enjoy applying this in the computer science world to find answers to practical problems. I am a patient guy and willing to share my experience to work out questions with you!
Please call me Wanjing or Jeanna. My pronouns are she/her/hers.

I am a physics major and junior. I mainly tutor physics classes and math classes in the Math, Physics, and Computer Science Tutoring Center. I consider myself to be talented in physics and math, and I have done remarkable jobs in physics classes that I have ever taken. I also work as a private tutor for PHYS 211 and PHYS 212, as well as calculus courses.
In my academic career, I enjoy taking challenges and solving difficult questions in physics and math to make my mind sharper and stronger. I have also been accumulating experiences from my previous 2 semesters working here, so I will be prepared for the coming school years.
