My name is Eden. I graduated from UC Santa Cruz with a degree in molecular biology and from Cal Poly Pomona with a MS in biological sciences (my research was immunology and virology focused). My strong points are the sciences, math, French, and English subject areas. If you want a dedicated, passionate, experienced, knowledgeable, and fun tutor who makes learning easy, then I'm the tutor for you!

Sometimes, sitting in a classroom and having a teacher talk to you isn't enough to help you learn and master something. When I went to UC Santa Cruz, my friends and I were always helping each other and studying in groups. That's when I realized I really like helping others learn and I'm good at it.

I am an extremely patient person, and I know that sometimes, you need someone to explain something to you a million times before you can get it.

I love to tutor and for me, it's all about that moment, that light bulb moment, when a student really understands something that I've explained to them. I have experience tutoring all grade levels and my students would tell you that I am the best!

I have tutored elementary children in math, reading, reading comprehension, and writing. Younger children are my specialty. I help them get excited about learning.

I have also tutored middle and high school students in Pre-Algebra, Geometry, Honors Algebra 1 and 2 (I also tutor in the Integrated math subjects), Literature, French, Chemistry, and Biology. I also tutor in the SAT and ACT subject areas and can help your child prepare for these tests.

I have experience in tutoring college subjects such as Chemistry, Biology, Cellular Biology, Biochemistry, College Algebra, Microbiology, Bacteriology, Virology, Immunology, Organic Chemistry, the GRE Math section, and the CBEST.

I tutor out of the local libraries/coffee shops; if I stay at one location, I am able to help more students. I have a 48 hour cancellation policy. After that window, full charges will be incurred for cancellations. Please see my Blog for more details. Weekly schedules must be adhered to. To be successful, tutoring is not something that can be done "when you feel like it."

I hope to meet you soon!

French,

French

Bonjour! Languages are a passion of mine. I can speak, read, and write French. I took French all throughout high school and still have a solid grasp of the language. I have my own text books and workbooks and I create my own quizzes/tests so that you (or your child) will have a solid grasp of the language. I have been tutoring in French for 4 years and I currently tutor 2 high school students.
Grammar,

Grammar

Proper grammar and syntax are the basic fundamentals to correct speaking and writing skills. English, literature, writing, spelling, grammar, proofreading, reading, and vocabulary have always been my strong points. English and Literature classes were always my easiest classes, even when I started taking AP classes. I have written many papers and reports, so grammar, spelling, and proofreading tools were expertly developed over time. I also constantly correct friends and people I know when they speak or when they write me e-mails.
Proofreading

Proofreading

I have written many papers and reports, so proofreading tools were expertly developed over time. English, literature, writing, spelling, grammar, proofreading, reading, and vocabulary have always been my strong points. English and Literature were always my easiest subjects, even when I started taking AP classes. Submitted work is a reflection of your capabilities and understanding of a certain subject. Incorrect grammar, spelling, and/or sentence structure can take a great essay or report to a F. Proofreading is an extremely important last step.

Reading is not only important in the form of a book, but is essential in all forms of life. Reading a college acceptance letter, reading instructions on a test, or simply reading a birthday card are triumphs that start with learning how to read. As a child, reading was one of my favorite things to do. I have always loved to read and I hope that I can pass on that love of reading to my students. I have read many books three or four times and still find joy in the stories. English, literature, writing, spelling, grammar, proofreading, reading, and vocabulary have always been my strong points.

SAT Reading,

SAT Reading

The SAT Reading portion of the exam can be a little tricky for students. If you aren't a speedy or excellent reader AND understand what you have read, then this portion can be the downfall in your score. The keys to the SAT Reading portion are grammar understanding, an expansive vocabulary, and skimming (NOT reading) longer passages. I can help you master these and other techniques to help you succeed on the SAT Reading portion.
SAT Writing,

SAT Writing

The Writing section is only 25 minutes! You cannot write a thoughtful, developed, masterpiece...and you aren't supposed to!! You must have a clear and concise position, support it in an organized manner, and not deviate from your position. The most important tool to accomplish this is the outline. Even if you've never used them, this is the one time you HAVE to. 5 paragraphs and 3 pages is what you know. The readers of the SAT do not want this. I can help you deliver a great SAT essay.

Algebra 2

I have tutored Algebra 2 and Honors Algebra 2 for three years. Algebra 2 is an important fundamental to most forms of higher mathematics and is essential for the SAT. College Algebra is also within the scope of Algebra 2; many of the concepts of Algebra 2 are covered again in College Algebra. Algebra 2 covers linear equations, inequalities, graphing with variables (quadratic functions, cubic functions, etc), intro statistics, systems of equations, logs and exponents, conics, and matrices. I have extensive experience in mathematics and extra problems/tests that will benefit any student.
Biology,

Biology

I have been studying biology since high school and taken it every year since 2005. I love the sciences and biology has always been my favorite subject. I majored in molecular biology at UC Santa Cruz and continue to study advanced topics for my graduate program. Tutoring in biology is like breathing: effortless.
Chemistry,

Chemistry

Current chemistry studies usually consist of converting units, basic elemental trends, elemental characteristics, bonding, grams <-> moles, acids and bases, mol vs. M, stoichiometry, naming compounds, titrations, determining unknown concentrations, volumes, empirical formulas, molecular formulas, kinetics, thermodynamics, and other characteristics from gathered data. There is also a fair amount of math involved in studying chemistry and a specific way to do this math (diagramming). In order to major in biology, you must also take chemistry. I took it in high school and did very well. I also took it for a full year at UC Santa Cruz. I have notes, worksheets, extra practice problems, as well as 2 textbooks for reference.

Geometry,

Geometry

I have been tutoring in geometry for two years. Geometry is all about shapes (circles, squares, triangles, spheres, cylinders, cones) parallel and perpendicular lines, and the angles within these shapes. The formulas, shapes, and concepts for geometry will be used in later years and on the SAT so learning them right the first time is paramount. If you are an adult learner, geometry in college is very similar: the rules and concepts haven't changed; the theorems and formulas are still the same for high school as well as college students. I can help you get through this! I create quizzes and assign extra problems so that you can excel.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

I have previously tutored a middle school student in pre-algebra and she found my tutoring extremely helpful. I did very well on the WyzAnt tests and I have study books available just in case.

Biochemistry,

Biochemistry

I am planning on going to grad school and my subject test covers biochem, cell, and molecular biology. I have been actively studying for this test. I also took a Biochem course at UC Santa Cruz.

Reading a college acceptance letter, reading instructions on a test, or simply reading a birthday card are triumphs that start with learning how to read. As a child, reading was one of my favorite things to do. I have always loved to read and I hope that I can pass on that love of reading to my students. I have read many books three or four times and still find joy in the stories. English, literature, writing, spelling, grammar, proofreading, reading, and vocabulary have always been my strong points. English and Literature were always my easiest subjects, even when I started taking AP classes. I've read everything from fiction to fantasy, Russian, Italian, and French Literature, as well as many of the classics.

SAT Math

I have been tutoring in advanced mathematics and SAT Math for four years. The SAT is not like a normal test. The SAT is designed to see how well you can take a test. Can you eliminate the wrong answers? Can you see the short cuts and know when to skip entire questions? I know how to do these things and I can teach them to you!

Writing

Writing is the most important form of communication, second only to speech. I have written many essays and reports, so carefully putting my thoughts into words has been expertly developed over time. English, literature, writing, spelling, grammar, proofreading, reading, and vocabulary have always been my strong points. English and Literature were always my easiest subjects, even when I started taking AP classes.

PSAT

I have been tutoring in advanced mathematics, composition, and the SAT for two years. The PSAT is a gauge. It is a guide to help determine how well you'll do on the SAT and if you do well, you may receive financial aid in college. The PSAT is just like the SAT: it is designed to see how well you can take a test. Can you eliminate the wrong answers? Can you see the short cuts and know when to skip entire questions? I know how to do these things and I can teach them to you!

SAT Reading,

SAT Reading

The SAT Reading portion of the exam can be a little tricky for students. If you aren't a speedy or excellent reader AND understand what you have read, then this portion can be the downfall in your score. The keys to the SAT Reading portion are grammar understanding, an expansive vocabulary, and skimming (NOT reading) longer passages. I can help you master these and other techniques to help you succeed on the SAT Reading portion.
SAT Writing,

SAT Writing

The Writing section is only 25 minutes! You cannot write a thoughtful, developed, masterpiece...and you aren't supposed to!! You must have a clear and concise position, support it in an organized manner, and not deviate from your position. The most important tool to accomplish this is the outline. Even if you've never used them, this is the one time you HAVE to. 5 paragraphs and 3 pages is what you know. The readers of the SAT do not want this. I can help you deliver a great SAT essay.

Great Teacher

We were one week away from Final Exams with poor language skills and almost no hopes, Eden helped my son Chris scored 88% in Final exams. Thanks to Eden for the turnaround!!!

Chris, 5 lessons with Eden

great teacher very knowledgeable

Eden F. really helped me out today. She explained to me to eat an elephant one bite at a time. I think I have a grip on my Final. Eden was very patient. Eden was very thorough. She welcomed me and never hurried. I would recommend Eden to anybody in the Microbiology field.

very nice, explains the problem, gives examples, finds websites to help you

Eden helped me in Algebra 2 intro to Stats. She was able to give me links to look at to find definitions and websites to look up how to do specific problems that I didn't understand. She is my go to math tutor.

Creative and observant tutor

Eden is a pleasure. My daughter likes seeing her and I like that she goes over new lessons in creative ways and reviews old ones when she notices my daughter isn't getting it or may have forgotten. We've only seen her a couple times but I like where this is going. Thanks Eden.

You are very welcome Meg! Eden is a pleasure to tutor and she has a great attitude!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Eden helped my daughter so much in just one hour! She feels so much more confident knowing that she has the support of such a helpful and patient tutor to help her work through the most difficult microbio concepts. Eden also went over key points from the chapters that'll be on her exam and gave my daughter study tips. She feels much better about the exam and herself. Thank you so much, Eden! I'd definitely recommend you to others.

Wonderful teacher!

I have tried many tutors for math and Eden is the first one that has made anything make any sense!! Highly recommended! She has made such a huge difference in my schooling!

Tutor responded:

Thank you Chandler! I know that Math can be more than difficult, but I will help you through it!

Amazing!

I was 2 years out of college and had one class left to complete my degree. I signed up for an online class and was so lost I contacted Eden and after our first session I was immediately at ease. Eden did a great job of breaking down what seemed to be a very confusing concept into small easy to understand pieces that made it click for me. I owe Eden a lot for getting me through my class and helping me get my college degree. I would recommend Eden to any student or parent of student looking for a dedicated tutor that will go the extra step into making sure that you are successful in the classroom. One unique thing from Eden is that you can tell she takes time out of her sessions to research your subject and prepare helpful study materials. I am very grateful to have had Eden as a tutor and hope that others will have the same opportunity to learn with her in the future.

Eden is a great tutor!

Eden is helping me review Geometry and other concepts that I need for the SAT and ACT tests. She is very patient and explains everything in detail so I can understand it. She has helped me with the test taking skills that I need for both the SAT and ACT, as they are different for each test. I really like how nice she is and how comfortable she makes me feel. I am feeling more confident about taking the tests and know my scores will be much better for having worked with her. Thank you so much Eden!
