100+ hours math
BC: 5 AP Stats: 5 AP Physics
Took 40 math-intensive Engineering courses
I am a highly qualified tutor. I have a passion to help people get through academics as swiftly as possible, yet with the patience and positive reinforcement that we all deserve.
I graduated high school with a 3.97 GPA (Non-weighted), and UCLA engineering with a 3.50 GPA. I have scored 5's on AP Calc BC and Physics, and continued to complete roughly 40 engineering courses which broadened my math and physics expertise. I have accumulated 100+ hours of math & physics tutoring experience through WyzAnt and other tutoring opportunities. I have worked at multiple Arcadia tutoring centers, teaching math and science
for high/middle school students enrolled in highly competitive school districts. In my UCLA years, I studied teaching techniques in the California Teach Math program. In this program, I completed field work tutoring in various subjects for a local elementary school class, and I created my own math lesson plan for the class. Furthermore, I was an online tutor under the UCLA Engineering Science Corps, in which I posted math and science homework help for high school students. During my high school years, I privately tutored pre-calculus
Throughout my long education, I have seen good and bad teachers. In high school, I took eight AP’s and received only one B. I studied hard and became sensitive to HOW WELL teachers did their job. There were teachers that knew the material, and there were teachers that knew the material AND had the patience and empathy to deliver it. The good ones did not merely instruct, they focused on making learning easy and enjoyable. Under the right teacher, a student works hard, quickly sees a pay-off for his/her efforts, and feels good. I have felt good and bad, depending on the teacher, and it thrills me to share with my students the "feel good" of education by being the best mentor that I can be. Rather than simply lecturing, I will meet you where you are, struggling or not, and help you master your class in an easy and enjoyable way. I believe everyone has a right to the "feel good" silver lining of education, because let's face it: school can be tough.
Why choose me? Do yourself a favor: shop around, I'm sure there's other qualified people. If you end up choosing me, you're doing OK! You are guaranteed a guy with engineering expertise and a passion to help you master your class. Look forward to meeting you. Cheers!
