Hello,
My name is Sagar D. I am a tutor for Trigonometry, College Algebra, Pre-calculus, Geometry, General Physics, General Chemistry, Biology, and Microbiology. I am also a tutor at California State University at Los Angeles since September, 2012.
In May 2011, I graduated from University of Texas at Arlington (UT Arlington) with my Baccalaureate degree in Biology with minor in Mathematics. At UT Arlington, I worked as a tutor for 14 months. I used to tutor for following subjects: PRE-ALGEBRA, COLLEGE ALGEBRA, TRIGONOMETRY, STATISTICS, CALCULUS I, CALCULUS II, PHYSICS I, PHYSICS II, GENERAL BIOLOGY, MICROBIOLOGY, GENERAL CHEMISTRY, and ORGANIC CHEMISTRY. I have taken some high level courses that help me to be better tutor. Some of the relevant courses are: Anatomy and Human Physiology I and II, Biochemistry, Calculus III, Differential Equations and Linear Algebra, Genetics, Immuno-biology, and Toxicology. While I was in my undergraduate level, I was also a undergraduate Teaching/Research Assistant for Microbiology lab. My work experience required me to deal with various students that essentially enhance my skill to interpret and explain concepts to the students in various ways so that the student can understand well. My dedication and honesty at my work ethics gave me promotion from basic to Level I and then to Level II tutor.
Currently, I am doing my master's in Applied Biotechnology from California State University. Along with my studies, I am also tutoring at CSU Los Angeles from September 2012. So, I already have more than 3 years of tutoring experiences in above mentioned subjects. Apart from my studies. I enjoy reading scientific journals and books. I also read biographies of scientists. I have started home tutoring and actively tutoring after I was done with my first year of Masters. I thoroughly enjoy teaching, and it has always been my passion. The interest might have to do something with my family background as my parents are also teachers in primary school. I like helping students to understand difficult concepts and develop problem solving skills. The aim in my life is to get my doctorate degree in Genetic/Molecular Biology field and work as a professor in the University. I would like to have my own research lab too.

Sagar's subjects
Algebra 1
I have been tutoring Algebra in my University. Math requires lot of practice but understanding the problems make is lot easier. There are various techniques to look to the problem.
Algebra 2
I have tutored Algebra 2 for more than 2 years. It is one of the fun subjects, takes thinking and then forming the equations to solve the problems. There are several rules for determining the unknown variable equations. Overall, algebra 2 is a very easy and fun subject too.
Biology
I have my Bachelor degree in Biology. So, I am expert in my field and has adequate information to give to my student, so they can understand well.
Chemistry
Of all the subjects Chemistry is a very interesting one. To do better in chemistry the foundation should be strong. Most of the time, I have noticed students have problems in understanding mole, molar concentration, atomic mass, balancing reactions, etc. These are the basic but very powerful concepts. Besides, there is the periodic table, which has so many ideas that need to be understood well. So, Chemistry is very easy but needs clear understanding too.
Geometry
It deals with the different shapes and the way to calculate their perimeters, areas and volumes.
Prealgebra
I used to Tutor up to Cal II in my University. So, prealgebra is not at all difficult for me to tutor. It builds on ideas like, the coorrdinate information, interpretation of the graph, solving for X in an equations. It is an interesting subject and with myself having experience and a strong background in mathematics, tutoring algebra is not a problem to me.
Precalculus
It is the foundation for the Calculus class. It deals with the materials that needed to be understand before understanding the differentiation and integrations.
Trigonometry
It deals with the trigonometric components like Sine, Cosine, Tangent and such. There are many trigonometric formulas for these trigonometric functions. It also deals with the graphical representation of these functions.
Microbiology
It is subject mainly focusing on Bacteria. Microbiology talks about the pros and cons of bacteria. It also encompass the structure and physiology of pathogen causing bacteria.
