...I tutored my two kids since they were in elementary school. I worked with them on my specialties, math and physics, all the way through high school. As a result, they were able to fully understand these concepts and excelled in the classroom and in their extracurricular activities, both earning a 4.0 GPA and top percentile standardized test scores.

...One of my favorite classes! Calculus is very applied...if done right. The course opens the students' minds to new ideas and concepts of math manipulations and even into the process of how these operations came to be.

...My experience tutoring a blind student was one of the most rewarding because I had to explain very visual concepts using innovative teaching methods. For example, having a physical ramp for him to feel while we were studying friction was helpful. After graduating, I moved to the Middle East and taught physics and astronomy at a private boarding school called King's Academy in Jordan.

...I am strongest in chemistry as it is my major. I took AP Chemistry in high school -- scoring a 5 and 800 on subject SAT -- and fell in love with the subject. At Cal, I have A's in general chemistry and organic chemistry and would love to teach other students!

...I also find real-world applications for the Calculus concepts so students see how relevant math is in their lives. When I teach math concepts such as Geometry, I try to make it more engaging for the student by connecting the math concepts to other subjects. Some students relate more to the language of math so I'll discuss the etymology of unique math terms.
