A little bit about myself,
I am a 26 year old UCLA Biochemistry
graduate who has been teaching and coaching math
students for over seven years now. Above all else I believe in finding an outlet for one's creativity, and in learning the things that make people more effective in their everyday lives. I enjoy tutoring because I get to help students categorize knowledge in a way that makes it useful for any situation that may come up in life. While subject matter and classes come and go, the problem solving skills that a student learns today are part of the same framework that will help them build lives of their own one day.
As a tutor I am successful because I truly understand where students get stuck during their thought process. I do not assume a student has prior knowledge of a subject, and do not ever pass judgement if a certain concept or skill has not been picked up along the way. I am friendly and very approachable and always encourage students to tell me exactly what they are thinking. I don't want to know what they don't understand, I want to know what steps they have taken right up to the point where they get stuck, so that we can adapt the thought process and move past the roadblock.
I also believe that while there many ways to solve problems, students are much better off learning how to choose which way is the most effective for the current issue at hand. For example, sometimes I hear "I like to do it this way," when working through an assignment. If it's not the most efficient way to do the exercise, or if will make future concepts harder to learn, I show the student the more optimized way to do the problem, and tell them where and how it will help them in the future. If this means that I reveal a math shortcut a year early, that's okay with me!
Please feel free to contact me if you would like to schedule a lesson, or if you have any additional questions for me...

The best thing to do in this type of a problem is write out your known and unknown variables first. You have to make sure that your temperature is in degrees Kelvin, and that your volume is in Liters. Pressure usually must be in atmospheres, but we don't...
This is the first problem balanced and written with formulas.
Fe2O3(s) + 2Al(s) -----> 2Fe(s) + Al2O3(s)
If you needed the other equation translated back to words, it is below as well!
Lead metal and aqueous hydrochloric...
The rate of reaction in terms of the "rate law expression" includes the rate constant (k), the [concentration] of the reactants, and the
orders of the reaction with respect to the different reactants. Consider the following reaction:
The initial concentrations...
