Hello!

I graduated from CSULB with my major in microbiology and minor in chemistry. I, therefore, am willing and able to teach biology, inorganic and organic chemistry (through the first semester). I am currently earning my masters degree in psychology with an emphasis in marriage and family therapy. So I would love to teach psychology. I have taken math up through calculus 2, have tutored up through algebra II, and can teach trigonometry/pre-calculus. I can tutor English up through the college 100-level. I also speak and write Spanish and could teach it up through the first two years of high school. I can also tutor English as a second language. (I have been teaching my South Korean-born wife for over two years now.) Finally, I also play guitar and sing and could teach basic playing techniques as well as some music theory fundamentals. I am very patient, friendly, and from my few years of tutoring experience, very in touch with individual learning needs. Please let me have any of your questions!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Guitar

I have about 14 years' experience playing guitar and singing as a hobbiest and as a small-time performer. I know chords and scales and am familiar with and comfortable playing in many musical genres including contemporary and classic rock, pop, classical music, and blues. I write and record songs with friends. When I was in choir all through high school, I learned about how to apply basic music theory to both write music and organize it. I can help any beginning guitar player learn how to tune the instrument, play chords and scales, when and how to use the chords and scales creatively, how to read tablature, and how to play music by ear whether it is lead or rhythm parts.
