I have a Master's Degree in Computer Science at UCLA and a Bachelor's Degree in Chemical Engineering. I was the bronze medal winner in the Michigan Math Competition. I was a successful Sr. Software Engineer with 19 years of experience in the high tech industry. I am currently working as a tutor.

I work with K-12 and college students. I can tutor in the following subjects: Math, Math Competition, SAT Math, Chemistry (including honor and AP), SAT Chemistry, Problem Solving Skills, and Computer Science. One of my students received a perfect score, 800, in SAT Math Level II on 10/2013. The other students received 780 and 770 in SAT Chemistry.

I can help to improve your knowledge as well as homework. I believe Math and Science is something to understand not just to memorize. I am flexible in how you want to learn. Whether you need just a few hours to review a subject or a long-term help, I am the one for you.
