Update 3/14/15 - currently accepting students
My background was pre-med/pharm at UC Berkeley with focus on Biochemistry
. I completed all undergrad math
. 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
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.

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...
