I received my B.S. and M.S. both in chemistry but I can honestly say that I am probably a better math tutor than my background leads to be. I have been a math tutor on and off for the past ten years. My students would say I get great results. Several students I have worked with have increased their grade dramatically. I am definitely a more laid back tutor than most. My method of teaching is not at all aggressive. I work well with students who want and are dedicated to learning. I don't portray myself as the mean teacher but more as a friend or peer who is there to help. I think that I build a much better relationship with students when I don't force authority over them. Don't get me wrong, I do establish authority from the start but with my laid back teaching style, the students are much more responsive.
I do have a full time job other than being a tutor part time. I currently work full time as a research associate in a biotech company in Hayward.
My hobbies are traveling and participating in outdoor activities.
