Hello prospective students (and parents, spouses, or loved ones),

My goal as a tutor is not just to teach you just enough to let you pass that next exam. I work with my students so that they not only know the material that we are covering, but also so that they understand the meaning of the material, the background behind it, and how to apply it in the real world. This allows for my students to handle those really difficult problems where they have to not just recite what was learned, but use it in a new way. The greatest thing I hear from my students after tutoring them, is when then tell me that they now understand the material and that they will not need any more help, since that means that I have truly done my job and they are ready to move forward on their own.

As a WyzAnt tutor, I have helped both high school and college students from schools in the Los Angeles area. Students I have worked with have come from USC, UCLA, LMU, Santa Monica City College, El Camino College, CSU Northridge, CSU Los Angeles, University of Phoenix, and others. I have helped students to maintain and A, to improve after getting a low score on a midterm, or just prepare before starting a class in the coming term. Regardless, I work with that student to be the best that they can be, which is usually much better than they even thought they could do on their own. With over 1,250 hours of tutoring with WyzAnt, I am proud of all that I have been able to give to my students and their feedback and responses are available for you to read.

My qualifications include over 1,250 hours of tutoring with WyzAnt students, a tutor for the USC Student Athletic Academic Services center, and I was previously a teaching assistant for both undergraduate and graduate students in the Biomedical Engineering and the Kinesiology departments at USC. Educational credentials include a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (Troy, NY), a Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Southern California (Los Angeles, CA), and a Master of Business Administration from the Anderson School of Management, UCLA (Los Angeles, CA).

While I live in the South Bay area (Carson, CA), I am willing to travel a reasonable distance to help my students. Typically, I meet students at either their home or at a public location that is suitable for studying. I have also conducted tutoring sessions online and over the phone using either the WyzAnt online tutoring tools, or other web based applications.

Please review my student feedback and subject list and feel free to contact me to schedule a tutoring session if you need any assistance in the subjects that I tutor.
