My background was pre-med/pharm at UC Berkeley with focus on Biochemistry. I completed all undergrad math/biology/chemistry/physics. I left after three years for personal reasons and joined the retail industry. After management at Ross, Target, shoe boutiques, and Nordstrom, I am now at Neiman Marcus. I regret leaving school, however, that path allows me to appreciate the value of education and the opportunities it brings. That real life experience opens my perspective to business and now I am back in school to pursue my business degree while working full-time. My goal is an MBA in accounting and become a Certified Public Accountant.

My experience with tutoring was throughout high school because I was always in Honors and AP classes for all subjects and graduated second of my class. In Berkeley, I continued the tradition with volunteer groups at public schools, library, and even Sunday school in Vietnamese. I have 4-10 students with me throughout the year. Two have been with me since intermediate school and going on 5th year. I am up to date with current curriculum of all math and science levels from basic to calculus (regular/honors/AP) chemistry (regular/honors/AP) in both public and private schools from San Ramon, to Orinda, and to Concord. I am also do SAT prep regularly.

The retail experience taught me valuable lessons such as humble and humility while maintaining confidence and integrity to deliver the best service in all situations. That is something I will apply to my approach, techniques, and methods for tutoring as well.

One of the highest praise that a customer can give to someone in the service department is "went above and beyond." This post is my philosophy in my current job and tutoring. Tutoring is a service, and in service unlike a job, there is progression rather than completion. I always ask myself how can I go "above and beyond" for my students? What else can I... read more

More than a great tutor! — Chinh is terrific! My son had a make up exam for honors chem and did very well after the tutoring session. He was more confident in his understanding of the concepts and approach to problem solving. Chinh goes above and beyond. He wrote notes for my son on how to better organize, created extra problems with step by step instructions on how to arrive at the answer and set up the next lesson plan ...
