I have a B.S. in chemistry from UC Irvine, after which I worked in the pharmaceutical industry for a few years. I then decided that teaching would be a more fulfilling career, so I went back to school for an M.S. in physics. I just finished my degree, and I was also a TA for lab classes during my time as a graduate student.
I got very good evaluations from my students, and I put in extra time to help them with their regular course assignments (even though that wasn't required). I also got the outstanding TA award from the AAPT (American Association of Physics Teachers).
I am proficient in math up to calculus, differential equations, and linear algebra, and in physics up to graduate level. Since my B.S. is in chemistry, I can also tutor chemistry.

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.

Algebra 1

I have tutored math extensively, at both the junior high and high school level. I have tutored several students for algebra 1, and they are all happy with their results. I have found that the topic which gives algebra 1 students is the most trouble is the multiplication of binomials and factoring, and my students have found that my way of explaining it is better than the teacher's explanation.

Algebra 2

I have extensive experience tutoring math at the high school level, including algebra 2, trigonometry, and calculus. I have had many students for algebra 2, and they've all been happy with their results. I have found that the topics that give algebra 2 students the most trouble are conic sections and completing the square. Since my background is in physics, I also like to explain the applications of conic sections, so it doesn't seem so abstract.

Calculus

I have tutored calculus for both high school and college students. My students have been very happy with their results, and two of my students got a 5 on the AP exam, and one of them was for calculus BC. I have taken three semesters of college calculus, which covers any introductory calculus textbook, and I periodically review my old textbook in order to keep my skills sharp. Since my background is in physics, I can also explain some of the applications of calculus, which helps make it less abstract.

Chemistry

I have extensive experience tutoring chemistry, at both the high school and college level. I have had many students in chemistry, and they are all happy with their results. Since chemistry is so relevant to real life, I can find lots of real world examples in order to make the subject matter more interesting and relevant. In fact, my students often tell me that they understood my explanations better than that of the teacher!

Chess

I have been playing for several years with a rating of 1800-1900.

Physics

I have an M.S. in physics, and I have tutored physics at both high school and college level, as well as AP physics. My approach is to illustrate abstract concepts by using concrete examples, which makes the subject easier to understand. My students often tell me that they understood my explanation better than the teacher's!

Precalculus

I have extensive experience tutoring math at the high school level, including algebra 2, trigonometry, and precalculus. I have had many students in precalculus, and they are all happy with their results. I have found that the topics that give precalculus students the most trouble are infinite series and limits, so I have worked on a lot of problems with limits, and learning how tell if a limit doesn't exist.

Really Awesome Tutor, Knew Exactly How To Help Me! — Really great tutor! I only met with Eren once for a "crash course" chemistry intensive. I called him at 6:40 pm on Sunday evening and he showed up where I was studying in 20 minutes! He was not only available at the drop of a hat, he stayed with me until late hours until I felt comfortable with the material. Thanks to Eren, I passed general chemistry (CHEM 111A/111B) at Long Beach State! The fin ...
