I possess a Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering from UC Davis. As such my strongest subjects are in mathematics and physics, although I am also proficient in chemistry and biology.

I have previously been employed at Kumon Learning Center and thus have experience tutoring young children and older. I teach by going through the process of a formula and providing as many examples as are needed for the student to grasp the concept. For subjects that highlight memorization and understanding of facts and concepts, I will review the material with the student and look for learning methods that would best enable the student to understand and retain the knowledge.

I do not merely verbalize through the lessons, but instead engage the student and gauge whether they understand the material by allowing them to exercise what they have just learned by finding the solutions to problems or through paraphrasing. In this manner, I can identify whether the student is understanding -- if not, I will reiterate or find another approach till they understand it.

Only when the student is comfortable with the current lesson that I move onto the next lesson. My objective is for the student to perform well on their tests, and only through thoroughly understanding the material will the student be able to do so, and I will work diligently with him or her to achieve that goal.
