I have tutored in Los Angeles area for the past ten years in math and physics at all levels. I am UCLA graduate with a B.S. in physics. I am planning to get my PhD in mathematics with emphasis on finance. My specialty is one-to-one tutoring.
I like to start the session by completing the lecture which was given in the class to make sure that the student has a full grasp of the subject; then, I solve a sample problem for the student, and design a similar one for her, so she can get involved in the problem solving procedure. As the session continues, I design harder problems for the student, and finally, we will target the homework problems.

Communication is very significant in tutoring. Each person can master the subject matter, but has to be taught slightly differently. As a result, I use different tactics with different students. I have worked with clients from many different mathematical backgrounds from elementary all the way to advanced. As far as the test prep goes, I make a sample test for the student from the homework problems covered in the test, and I give him a certain amount of time to do the test; then, we'll go over her mistakes together. I always make sure that the student can reason out the steps to get to the final solution. The key is for my client to become independent of me, and rely on herself, and be able to use logical reasoning.

ACT Math

I have taught ACT-math to many students, and prepared them for the exam. I have graduated from UCLA with a B.S. in Physics. As a result, ACT-math is something I am capable of handling.

Algebra 2

I have had Algebra back in high school. I have tutored many students in Algebra with different backgrounds. I have a B.S. in Physics from UCLA with 10 years of tutoring experience.

Calculus

I have a B.S. in Physics from UCLA and 10 years of tutoring experience.

Chemistry

Since my major was Physics at UCLA, chemistry was a requirement. I have worked with many students in Chemistry. I have extensive experience in both theory and experiments in Chemistry.

Differential Equations

Differential equations was a required subject for me to complete my degree in theoretical Physics at UCLA. As a physicist, I have encountered many forms of differential equations in my subject area. Many problems in Physics involve solving complex differential equations. I am very competent in solving them. I have tutored some students in differential equations, and have had great results.

Geometry

Since I have studied Physics at UCLA, Geometry is one of those subjects that I have constantly been exposed to. I have worked with many people in Geometry. The key is to make the subject understandable for the student, so They can get a sense of visualizing the geometrical objects.

Linear Algebra

I have taken Linear Algebra back in college as it is a requirement for students who want to study Physics. At UCLA where I studied Physics, we used many concepts such as linear combinations, groups, and vector spaces to attack problems in Physics. I have tutored some of my students in Linear Algebra, and I am very familiar with the concepts.

Physics

My degree is in theoretical Physics from UCLA. As a result, I have taken many courses in Quantum Mechanics, Electromagnetism, and Classical Mechanics. I have tutored in these areas to numerous students. Physics is my specialty.

SAT Math

I have tutored SAT math to many clients, and prepared them for the exam. I have graduated from UCLA with a B.S. in Physics. I have studied advanced mathematics, and my students have had great results in SAT math.

Trigonometry

I have taken Trig back in high school. As I studied theoretical Physics, I have encountered many trig problems. I have also tutored several people in trig. My degree is in Physics from UCLA.
