James Munteanu

James Munteanu James is a Physics major working with Dr. Homeyra Sadaghiani on Physics Education Research. He has been a Learning Assistant for over a year, and is a strong advocate for the LA program. He is passionate about helping people learn physics and truly believes that anyone can be good at physics with the right combination of hard work and good teaching.
Being a Learning Assistant helped me connect my knowledge of physics with my passion for teaching. I’ve learned so much from my experiences interacting with students, and it’s motivated me to be a better student in my own classes. I’m looking forward to carrying what I’ve learned at Cal Poly Pomona with me into a possible career in physics education, and sharing my knowledge with others.
