Greetings...

I have eight years of professional tutoring experience and five years of personal tutoring experience in mathematics, ranging from pre-algebra through calculus. I have also tutored statistics and probability, chemistry, astronomy, and physics (mechanics) as well. Additionally I have helped students improve their scores on the ACT, SAT, and GRE exams.

Educationally, I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Applied Mathematics from the University of California at Berkeley. Before going there, I completed all the requirements for a major in engineering at the two year college level and that is why I took all the chemistry, physics, and engineering, classes in addition to the mathematics classes.

Regarding my tutoring methods, I know that each person is an individual with their own unique perspective and as such I tailor my tutoring methods to specifically fit their perspective. Communication always works better when two people are talking the same way.

Thank you for reading my profile and I look forward to helping you.
