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.
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.
