Do you find math and physics hard to understand? Don't worry. Many people do, but I can show you how to succeed. As someone who has excelled in these classes as an honors student undergraduate and am now attending Caltech, I have the experience necessary to help you grasp the relevant concepts and ace your exams. I have successfully tutored many previous students and can help you too.

I enjoy imparting my knowledge to others in a patient and understanding fashion. Moreover, I find that helping students focus on conceptual understanding sometimes overlooked in class can help them do better on problems and also increase their enjoyment of the subject.

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

This introduction to higher level math above arithmetic may be daunting, but I will help you get through it, understand it, and hopefully enjoy it. Even though it may seem hard, you will be able to understand functions, solving for variable and related topics necessary to get through this subject.

GRE

Having trouble with the GRE? Don't be intimidated. Once you understand the format of the questions, there is only a limited amount of information you have to learn. As someone who got in the 99th percentile in verbal and 97th in math on the new GRE, I can help you ace your exam.

Linear Algebra

I have taken a college course in linear algebra. In addition, I have used linear algebra in multiple advanced physics and mathematics courses. It remains the basis for me for more advanced methods.
