Hello future student or student's parents!

My name is Lisa and I just moved back to the Bay from Portland, OR.
Although I am studying to be a doctor of chiropractic, I used to study quite a different field in undergrad. For my undergraduate degree I studied at the University of California, Berkeley where I majored in Physical Sciences field major. It included everything from astrophysics, physical chemistry, and mathematics. I also received my minor in applied language studies where I studied topics such as second language acquisition. After college I got licensed in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL). So I have advanced knowledge in most sciences (especially in the bio-sciences and physics), mathematics, as well as English as a Second Language.

I'm new to the Bay Area but I am well experienced in tutoring. I started tutoring in high school and never stopped, I don't plan on stopping now!
