Hi! My name is Grace and I am a recent UCLA graduate with a Bachelor's degree in Biology. I am currently attending Optometry school, working towards a Doctor of Optometry degree.

I have been tutoring and mentoring since I was in high school. My tutoring experience began in the setting of a public library (which lasted a couple of years), and slowly progressed into private one-on-one tutoring. Tutoring has always been extremely enjoyable to me because helping people is truly such a gratifying experience. Having received tutoring myself, I know how beneficial it is and how helpful it can be in the long run. It really makes a difference. Sometimes a more intimate, private setting to ask for help is exactly what people need.

I am currently only offering tutoring sessions in the Covina/West Covina neighborhood at a nearby coffee shop in the following subjects:

- Pre-Algebra
- Algebra 1
- Algebra 2
- Chemistry: college prep, honors, introductory courses (not AP level)

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

Microbiology

I recently (Summer 2011) took a Microbiology course at a community college. I passed the course with an A in both lab and lecture. Additionally, I've had experience with the subject in my undergraduate studies at UCLA (as I was a Biology major).
