Hello, I am Auster. I graduated from University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in Dec. of 2013 with a Chemical Engineering degree with a GPA of 3.8. I have experience working to tutor first and second year college students in multi-variable calculus as well as physics. While working with them, I developed my own manual to best teach the material.

I have a strong background in Math and Science, and I can teach all sorts of standardized tests including AP, SAT, and ACT. I have scored over 700 on each of the SAT sections. In terms of teaching methods, I am patient and can work with students of any age and education level. I like to start by probing what the students know and develop a curriculum that will fit their needs the best.

My schedule is very flexible, and I am available during weekends as well. If interested, please don't hesitate to contact me.
