About Dabin

I am a recent graduate from UC Berkeley with double major in chemistry and applied mathematics.

Currently, I am reaching out to tutor students full-time and thus eager for any students. I am a disciplined, fair, and patient tutor who believes that patience and repetition will trump most intellectual obstacles. Thus I am ready to sit down next to the tutee and help them in any way I can.

I believe that students' greatest weakness is not the inability to learn, but the inability to tell someone that they don't know how to learn and that they need help. That applies to students of all ages, and tutors who can sympathize and understand those boundaries can reach out and help students the most.

I have taught students in private tutoring for over 5 years in chemistry and mathematics during my high school and college years. Therefore I know how to communicate with students who are struggling to understand concepts. I try not to give answers and then explain; rather, I try to help the students reach the right answers on their own. Such independence is crucial for students.

I graduated from UC Berkeley, having majored Applied Mathematics and Chemistry. I also taught my peers in these subjects throughout high school and college. Therefore I believe I am more than qualified to these these subjects.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Differential Equations

I believe that I am capable of teaching differential equations because I took that course when I was finishing my math major in UC Berkeley. I learned several different levels of differential equations, including partial differentials and multi-variable calculus, and I excelled in both classes. And I know how difficult it is to understand the equations because most books just place them without deriving them. Because I derived nearly every single equation in linear algebra lectures, I know how to break down the theories and help students learn not only the theories but also the main idea of differential equations.

Discrete Math

Discrete mathematics is different from most advanced mathematics because it does not involve complex differential equations. It has to do with concepts like countably infinite, combinations, probabilities, and contrapositives. I know how difficult and confusing these concepts are, and I also know how to derive and learn them. Therefore I am qualified to teach this subject. I am a recent graduate from UC Berkeley with double major in chemistry and applied mathematics.

Linear Algebra

I believe that I am qualified to teach this subject because I actually tutored students in Linear algebra. I know that many of the equations and derivations are confusing, but I have personal experience and know-how of learning the theories and the short-cuts. In short, I can help make linear algebra easier for others and helping them derive and understand equations so that they have a greater understanding of the subject.

Python

I took Python from UC Berkeley, CS61A class, having gotten a B+ in the class. In addition, I use Python in my queries as a data analyst nearly every day.
