My mission in life is to empower and enrich everyone around me. This is the reason why I am in the field of education. I have been teaching Biology and Chemistry for over 13 years. Prior to my current teaching assignment, I have taught martial arts, Mad Science, AVID programs, APEX credit recovery, and other academic and non academic special programs. My life has been devoted to giving students the best and bring the best out of them.

My approach in tutoring is that of a science researcher. We will explore and discover the scientific phenomenon by applying the scientific method. This will give us an extensive background and evidence to lead us to the solution. I also bring in years of experience in coaching students in finding their strengths on how to best learn the concepts. I enjoy bringing creative ways of presenting concepts, from drawing to skits. Every opportunity that I get to teach, my goal is for the learning process to mentally grow and enjoy the process.

Biology

I have been teaching Biology and Honors Biology in the Anaheim Union High School District for over 13 years. I have helped hundreds of students understand and appreciate complex Biological concepts and enjoy the process along the way. I have made learning Biology more interactive and more relatable. I have a high passing rate when it comes to Biology state exams.

Chemistry

I have been teaching Chemistry for the Anaheim Union High School District for over 8 years. I have made Chemistry more understandable and enjoyable. I believe in hands on lab and training when it comes to learning, which is why I have a high pass rate when it comes to state testing. I have also taught multiple accelerated Chemistry programs for Cal State Fullerton and various Orange County colleges.
