Physics and Chemistry

Why Physics

“I think physics is awesome because it involves so many different modes of thinking: playing with mathematical relationships and equations, estimating numbers, using intuition to predict what will happen in real world situations, using experiments to question those predictions, building theories to make sense of surprising experimental results, etc. I believe that my students will be successful if they can take away from my class not only skills, but a mindset of belonging, curiosity, growth and resilience.” 

Professional Experience

Throughout her undergraduate studies, Zoe taught informally as an algebra, calculus and physics tutor. After graduation, she was accepted into the Match Teacher Residency Program, which prepares beginning teachers for success in high performing urban schools. 

Hobbies

 Zoe enjoys yoga, cooking and biking.

Teaching pushes me to grow both intellectually and emotionally. I learn so much from the commitment, curiosity and humor that my students bring every day.
