I am not currently accepting new students, but I will return to tutoring in November 2014.

I am a recent graduate of the University of Southern California. I received a Bachelor of Sciences with Honors in Biochemistry and I also minored in music recording. I have a long history of part-time tutoring and volunteer work with students ranging from elementary school to college. If you need an affordable, hard-working, and flexible tutor who can help you with any math class up to Calculus II (or AP Calculus BC), SAT math, or any Biology/Chemistry class, feel free to contact me. I received a perfect 800 on the math portion of the SAT and I have an extensive understanding of chemistry, biology, and physics.

As for my policies: Please give a minimum of 24 hours notice for cancellations. For same-day reschedules, let me know at least 3 hours in advance so I can plan accordingly - I'm usually very flexible. Before first lessons, I like to meet for approximately 30 minutes with new students (and their parents) at no charge to discuss our plan of action for future tutoring sessions and to see if we are a good fit.

P.S. I also teach guitar lessons as well if you are looking for a guitar instructor!

Golf

I have been an avid golfer for my entire life; I was the first-ranked player on my High School varsity team at perennial golf power Huntington Beach High and currently sport a 4.1 handicap. I took lessons from Victor P. for over 5 years, who also taught former #1-ranked professional LPGA golfer Laurena Ochoa. I have studied the swings of both professionals and amateurs whilst developing my own game and have a great understanding of my local golf landscape including tournaments, associations, and courses.

Guitar

I cofounded a non-profit organization called Play On, Inc. where I taught guitar lessons to underprivelaged youth in Los Angeles. I have attended multiple music education conventions and worked directly with professors at the USC Thornton School of Music to develop a lesson plan that works for beginners and for more advanced guitar players. I have guitar playing samples of my own work available at all time and I have a lot of great software I can use to enhance my guitar lessons. I have been teaching guitar lessons for 7 years.

Organic Chemistry

I have a B.S. in Biochemistry and have 3 years of experience doing Organic Chemistry research at USC. I received high marks in my organic chemistry classes and I have tutored many students in organic chemistry. Finally, I have a great understanding of what is covered in both organic chemistry classes and what is covered on the MCAT.
