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.

Bopha was able to engage our 9th grader, assess his skills, and cover two sections of his text in one hour. We could not be happier with her services!
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.
With a casual, friendly approach to teaching math, I get tremendous results. Math is not all about plugging numbers into a formula but it's about understanding what the numbers mean. Anyone can come up with a calculated number but the true test is whether that number makes any sense at all. With that being said, I am very successful at teaching Algebra.
