My specialties are SAT and chemistry tutoring. I can also teach math and physics. Students find me to be kind and understanding. My passion for knowledge is contagious and motivating. As a graduate student at UCLA I tutored students to make extra money. As a teaching assistant, I received very positive reviews even from students who expected low grades.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Chemistry

I hold degrees in chemistry (BS Caltech, PhD UCLA). I received a 5 on the chemistry AP test and and 800 on the chemistry SAT II test. I have tutored students at the high school level, AP chemistry level, and introductory college level. I used to charge $60/hr in 2006 before I earned any graduate degrees. I am doing this now to occupy my time more than to make money.

SAT Math

I studied for this test in 1999/2000. I tutored myself using these and other books. My expertise includes both content and test-taking strategies.

My scores were:

I could have missed 2 more questions and still earned an 800.

My scores were:
