About Jeffrey

I am electrical engineering graduate from UCLA. I have extensive experience with tutoring students from ages 14-21. I began tutoring students in high school to encourage healthy study habits and improve AP test scores among my peers. Watching students steadily improve during this period of high school tutoring led me to continue tutoring during my university years. I continued to tutor lower division courses for math, physics, chemistry, and electrical engineering at UCLA.

Throughout my college career, I also participated in UCLA's engineering outreach program to tutor students in surrounding high schools on STEM-related subjects.

My tutoring philosophy is to allow students to fully understand a concept before moving on. Understanding is not synonymous with brute memorization of formulas and concepts. I believe that all of my students should be able to explain "why" a certain approach or conclusion was made in any sort of problem they are given. I lecture, teach, and tutor with these aims in mind.

If you are interested in more information or would like to set up a lesson, please feel free to contact me by sending a message.

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.

Calculus

I received the following scores for testing related to Calculus: AP Calculus AB(5), AP Calculus BC(5). I am confident in my calculus, which has only improved as I have continued to use it throughout my university studies as an electrical engineering major. I took both Calculus courses in high school and have experience with the subject matter on an intimate level. I also am comfortable with multivariable calculus and differential equations, which will be the next level of calculus your child will take(presumably after linear algebra).

Chemistry

I have tutored both Chemistry Honors and AP Chemistry. I scored a 5 on the AP Chemistry test and a 800 on the SAT II Chemistry Subject Test.

Electrical Engineering

I am an electrical engineering undergraduate student in his final year at UCLA. I have taken courses for Analog Circuit Design, Systems and Feedback Control, and DSP. I have solid experience tutoring first and second year engineering students in lower division electrical engineering courses including basic circuit theory, logic design for digital systems, and introductory solid state devices(SS Physics, BJT, Diode). I also have experience working in the professional setting where I interned for as a network engineer for Gemtek, creating code to monitor UDP and TDP loss during wireless data transfer as well as designing support for router chipsets. I have also worked for the High Speed Electronics Lab at UCLA, where I worked under Professor Frank Chang and my P.I. Yan Zhao on FPGA-USART communication and a signal sweeper using an 8-bit digital signal sweeper to scan a 90 degree arc and generate multiple waveforms at specific angle intervals to determine phase delay and pinpoint a signal's location. I am experienced with NI LabView, Xilinx ISE, MATLAB, C++, Visual Basic, TSUPREM-4, and MEDICI.

Physics

I have taken university physics courses for my engineering curriculum and I am experienced with topics including kinematics; dynamics; momentum; energy and work; rotational motion; universal gravitational motion; oscillations and periodic motion, geometric and physical optics; electrostatics; electromagnetism; electrical circuits, photo electric effect, nuclear physics, etc. I have specific study techniques to improve grades for physics courses at the high school level. Physics is a subject most high school instructors will not teach effectively, which can affect AP scores and understanding of fundamentals for future college physics courses. I took the AP Physics tests in 2011 and scored a 5, 4, and 4 for Physics B, C: Mechanics, and C: E&M respectively. I also achieved a 780 on the SAT II Physics subject test.

Precalculus

I teach SAT Math and AP Physics 1, which both require a solid grasp on Precalculus. I have taken the course before in high school and continue to use the skills I learned in the class for everyday application on top of my tutoring. I am confident I can help you excel at learning vectors, polar coordinates, limits, matrices, complex numbers, conic sections, logarithms, and basic function analysis.

SAT Math

I scored a 2300 on the SAT I(800 Math, 780 Verbal, 720 Writing). I also scored the full 800 on the SAT II Subject Test for Mathematics II. I have strong fundamentals in the test criteria for math and I was self-taught using test prep books and know specific focus points and study techniques to improve SAT math scores.

Great AP Calc and AP Chem Tutor!

Jeffrey arrived on time, and we reviewed AP Chem right away (AP Calc later). He is very knowledgeable in both subjects, very good at conveying the concepts, explaining theories, and very patient. This is my first lesson with Jeffrey, and already I learned stuff that I missed in my regular classes. He is highly recommended for students struggling in Chem and Calc!
