"Hello! My name is Tristan! I graduated with a degree in Applied Physics from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and was fortunate enough to be able to teach professionally right out of college! I have several years of experience as a tutor and an undergraduate Teaching Assistant, and have been able to work as a teacher and mentor for several students while at Rensselaer, as well as at Phillips Exeter Academy as a student teacher. These days, I find myself teaching special needs students physics and chemistry, differentiating lesson and study plans for each student to maximize their success and confidence in the subjects.

My first and favorite instrument is the guitar, and I love all that playing it has done for me so much that I began my career in education teaching guitar in my hometown!
