Are you struggling with math or science? I can definitely help you on the math side from basic algebra all the way to multivariable calculus and on the science side from physical science to calculus based physics.
Here's a little about me: I'm an alumna of Mission San Jose High School with 11 Advance Placement courses, I was the only one at MSJ able to take AP physics my sophomore year and be one of the top students alongside upperclassmen. My passion for science, mathematics and engineering carried on with me through college and I graduated Cum Laude as a dual major of electrical engineering computer science and computer engineering at University of California, Irvine. I was the president of Eta Kappa Nu and vice president of Tau Beta Pi, both honor societies specific to electrical engineering and engineering respectively and a member of the prestigious Phi Beta Kappa honor society. I pursued a Ph.D. in semiconductor optoelectronics at Cornell University and now employed at a San Jose tech company. Throughout my journey in upper education, I’ve not only tutored friends and students alike for the past 9 years; I was also a teaching assistant at Cornell University. I always try to translate complicated ideas and concepts so that it becomes intuitive to someone who’s new to the subject. I take the opportunity to inspire and motivate anyone I mentor very seriously and the greatest pleasure is when I know I’ve made a difference.
Teaching/tutoring style: My personal philosophy is start early, grow steadily, and if you retain and understand the material, you will naturally do well on the tests. I teach from the ground up; I will only move on to more advanced topics when I feel my student establishes a solid understanding of the fundamentals. Shortcuts will only be taught when the “long” way becomes second nature. With that said, I will not accept any tutoring jobs involving cramming sessions aimed towards doing well on finals, standardized tests, and AP exams two or three months before the exam. I will only provide test prep services if I’ve tutored you throughout the year.
