Veenu Suri

Academic Tutor

I was born in New Delhi, and I came to the United States when I was eleven years old. My family and I settled in Michigan, where I eventually attended the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor. At the university, I pursued a Bachelor of Science in physics and astronomy. One of my long term goals is to attend grad school for physics and eventually become a university professor.

In high school, I was a member of National Honor Society. As a member, I volunteered to hold weekly tutoring sessions for all subjects. At the University of Michigan, I tutored college students in mechanics and physics for a life sciences class covering concepts relating to electricity and magnetism for two semesters. I also had the opportunity to work as a teaching assistant for two university-level physics courses. As a TA, I was responsible for conducting office hours and leading review sessions.

I believe that tutoring is not simply about educating students about a topic, it is about helping students succeed. To do so, a tutor must not only explain concepts clearly, but also help students master the skills they need to learn independently. My initial approach to tutoring is understanding where a student is struggling, and from there finding ways to help them that use their strengths and learning style. From my tutoring experience, I have found that showing tutorials and providing demonstrations to students helps them relate their coursework to real life events. I have found that when students understand the relevance of a subject, they tend to be more motivated.

In my free time, I like to play violin, piano, and basketball. I am also working as a part-time research intern at the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, studying and undertaking the conceptual design of a photonic propulsion system for Mars and the moon.
