“Adam was hands down the best physics TA I've ever had! He always came in with a smile and tried to make the class more entertaining and appealing to everyone. He is extremely approachable and actually cares about his students. I always felt comfortable asking questions and always left DL feeling more confident in what we were learning. I would definitely recommend him as a TA and even a professor for the 7 series.”
“I thought that Adam was amazing as a TA and I firmly believe that my success was amplified by his enthusiasm and understanding of physics”
Best TA ive had. keep it up.”
“Adam is an absolutely OUTSTANDING 7 series TA and individual. In all honesty, he is THE BEST TA I have had out of all my TA's in the 7 series. He is fun, very approachable, and extraordinarily skilled in explaining the course material in a way that is easy to understand. He alone made my time in 7C a thoroughly enjoyable experience. I genuinely feel that I learned so much more through his teaching methods - they were very practical and very effective, which, in turn, brought about a greater understanding of the subject matter. Overall, Adam is not only an amazing TA but also a wholesome, friendly, and altruistic person. I would DEFINITELY recommend him to other students taking the 7 series.”

“Adam is very enthusiastic and active as a TA. This made physics really fun”
“Adam was very enthusiastic in DL and made what otherwise might be a tedious and long experience very fun and engaging. I consistently left DL with a feeling of command over the subject matters and Adam played a large role in that. Adam definitely stimulated my interest in the subject and he was always available to answer my questions during DL. Overall, incredibly helpful and engaging TA and I would highly recommend him to any of my peers who take Physics.”
“Adam is one of my favorite TA so far in STEM. I learn so much in discussion because he always comes prepared, is very knowledgeable, patient, and always checks up on all of us to check if we are following and understanding. He is always asking us if the pacing is too fast or too slow and always accommodates for us. He answers every single question I have patiently and always answers my email in a very timely manner. I like how he makes fun analogies for the concepts and it really helps me understand the materials. He is always welcoming and if I had the chance to take Adam again I would. As someone who has never taken physics, Adam has made this course a lot less painful and I actually look forward to coming to discussion because he makes the concepts very interesting and fun!!”
One of the best TAs I have ever had for a course!”
