...Now, I am a chemistry major at Cal and work in a biophysical chemistry lab here, researching some of the protein mutations that are common causes of cancer. I would love to help students catch up or get ahead in math or science! In high school, I took AP Calculus AB/BC and scored 5's on both tests.

...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. Math has a natural connection to history and science and Geometry especially connects well to the arts and architecture.

...If you are struggling in any level of chemistry up through organic, I can help you out. Physics is where algebra comes to play. Many students find their physics classes difficult because it is the first time that they've been asked to apply their algebraic skills in a 'real world' context.

...I focus on being clear with the basic concepts of equations and graphs so the student feels confident moving on in algebra. I have tutored algebra II for over a year, both with Wyzant and through a private agency in Cupertino. This class can be a significant step up from algebra 1, and it often includes a student's first real exposure to trigonometry.

I have been tutoring students for 14 years in California, Manhattan, England and Houston, TX. All of my students raise their scores by at least a letter grade. SAT students have raised their scores by over 150 points.
