Thank you for reading my page. I have been teaching and tutoring students in Science and Mathematics since my graduation from UC Berkeley in 2006. My passion in life is learning. I love to learn most about physics and biology, but also enjoy learning music and languages. Right after graduating from college I decided to work as a teacher so I could transfer some of my excitement for the sciences to a younger generation. I have been teaching professionally and have earned a Clear California Credential in Physics, Biology and Multiple Subjects. I am also experienced in teaching English Learners and students with special needs.
My approach to tutoring and teaching is simple: help the student find a way to learn better by explaining the concepts in many different ways and going through many sample problems. Then I have the students teach the concept back to me. These methods have had proven results: for 4 years in a row, more than 90% of my physics students scored proficient or advanced on the California STAR Physics tests. Last year one of my students also scored 800 on the Physics SAT2.
My areas of strength are Undergraduate College Physics, Conceptual Physics, Honors/AP Physics, Precalculus, Algebra 1 & 2, Geometry and Biology
