Brendon

Bio

When Brendon was a high school student in a town on the south shore of Long Island, he wrote a program for the TI-84 series calculator called EpicChem that solves a variety of problems presented in the AP Chemistry curriculum. Feeling a strong draw to the physical sciences, he attended Brandeis University and graduated 4 years later with a B.S. in Physics and Mathematics Summa Cum Laude, earning the Physics Faculty Prize and acceptance to Phi Beta Kappa. He is now a physics PhD student at Harvard University with interests in experimental high energy physics, including searches for new particles at the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland.

Brendon has a passion for teaching and aspires to be a professor of physics. While at Brandeis, he volunteered as a tutor for local high school students in mathematics, physics, and computer science. He worked as a teaching assistant for the introductory physics laboratory course for 2 years. He also worked in the Getz Multimedia Lab at Brandeis, where he routinely taught students and faculty alike how to use a variety of film and audio equipment and software to complete creative projects. Brendon excels at teasing out his students understanding of a topic and building upon that understanding with a logical, step-by-step approach.

Brendon has several developing hobbies including weightlifting, exploring the Boston café and restaurant scene, and computer gaming.

Testimonials
  • Testimonial Citation: 
    "Really incredible tutor, has an amazing way of making you understand the material while letting you get to the root of the problems yourself rather than telling you the answers straight out. Got me through more than a few math classes. He's truly an incredible teacher."
