Danielle (Applied Calculus)

Danielle is currently a senior in the College of Arts and Sciences, majoring in Mathematics and minoring in Physics. She plans on attending graduate school for engineering. She is very excited about the opportunity to SI, helping students learn Mathematics, which she sees as one of the most important skills to have in life. She has tutored many students in the past and been a Physics TA, and she believes that will help her in this position. Outside of being an SI Leader, she spends most of my time on the field as part of the Women's Varsity Soccer team. 


Hannah (Astronomy)

Hannah is currently a Senior, studying Physics and Japanese. She has been a lifelong lover of stars and plans pursuing a career in astrophysics in Japan. Her passion for astronomy and her experiences as the Physics Department's Lab Technician has prepared her to be a capable SI leader for Astronomy.


Jenn (General Physics)

Jenn is a Senior with a major in Physics and a minor in International Studies. She has always had a fascination with why things are they way they are, and found her passion in Physics. Jenn has always had a love of learning and finds much joy in helping others become excited about learning something new as well. When not working on homework, she can be found volunteering in the Public Observatory at the Air and Space Museum (helping people become interested in space!) or working at Starbucks.

 

Sarah Y. (Accounting)

Sarah is currently a senior, majoring in Psychology and Business Administration. This is her third semester working as an SI leader for Managerial Accounting. As a CAS student she knows that Accounting does not come naturally to all people, so she hopes to foster an increased appreciation of T-accounts and costing processes through her SI sessions.


Jeremy (Accounting)

Outside of being an SI Leader, Jeremy is a member of the AU Bender Library staff and a passionate New York sports fan.

Matt (Chemistry)

Matt is currently a Junior Biochemistry major in the College of Arts and Sciences. This is his third semester as an SI leader, second for chemistry. Being the science nerd he is, Matt enjoys making chemistry less scary and more fun and exciting for people. Besides working in the chemistry labs here at AU, Matt enjoys nerdy video games, Japanese comics, and is currently the secretary of the Student Historical Society. He still isn't quite sure how he won the election for the last one, but he thinks it has to do with running unopposed.

He is active on campus as the treasurer for both the SIS Undergraduate Council and the National Honor Fraternity, Phi Sigma Pi, as well as being a member of Zeta Psi.

A dimensional analysis and stoichiometry aficionado, Kim cannot wait to share her geeky chemistry knowledge with her students!

Her hobbies include: traveling, frequenting the Davenport Coffee Lounge, getting lost in the depths of SoundCloud, watching TED talks, & creative non-fiction writing.


Louis (Physics)

Louis is from Port Townsend, WA. He is a Junior Physics major and SI for Physics 110. He became interested in becoming an SI leader after benefiting from the work of other SI leaders in physics classes. Students often feel they don't have the necessary knowledge and skills to solve physics problems: Louis really enjoys helping students develop problems solving strategies and realize their abilities. Louis became interested in Physics and the nature of the physical world through his work and experience in the natural world and outdoors, working in firefighting, dairy farming, and playing rugby.
