About Gwen

As a summa cum laude graduate of UC Berkeley in Applied Mathematics and Statistics, I have over five years of experiences as an educational entrepreneur. I love to teach, coach, and tutor, and my specialties are all levels of math and homework help. I have been helping over more than 150 students from all different ages in both Northern and Southern California succeed in their classes and on the SAT/ACT. Additionally, I also help with admission essays and have watched students be accepted to their dream schools across the country. My goal is to empower as many students as possible with knowledge and confidence.

I graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in Applied Math and focus on Statistics. I scored 36/36 on ACT Math and 800/800 on SAT Math and Calculus has always been my favorite subject.

I started tutoring because I am passionate about learning and education. I want to help parents in easing the homework headache and to show my students that learning can be fun. I want each of my students I work with to learn how to study and to develop a love for learning. My approach is to understand how students comprehend, and what they struggle with, and then present that information in a manner that they can engage with. I always encourage my students to think critically and equip them with the tools and skills necessary to tackle all kinds of problems.
