I am a recent graduate from UCLA in Environmental Science (a compilation of all sciences) and working towards my masters in Education. I am currently a Chemistry, Physics, and Environmental Science teacher in Los Angeles, but also love tutoring high school and middle school kids one-on-one. I have professionally been tutoring Science, Math, and Latin for 3 years during my college education.

I am most experienced in Chemistry, Algebra I & II, Latin, and Earth Sciences. I am also experienced tutoring Biology I, as well as SAT Math I and II. I was a straight A student in high school, and have received 5's on Chemistry AP and Environmental Science AP. I received 4's on Latin and Calculus AP.

I love working with students, and tutoring sessions are as helpful as they are fun. I have improved grades by at least one letter grade, and sometimes more, depending on the subject.

All in all, I think I'm a great match for some students, and look forward to attaining more clients! :)
