About Lluvia

I began tutoring physics twelve years ago because of my passion for the subject. I continue to tutor physics because I have discovered an equally profound passion for teaching. Many people dread or fear taking physics because of its reputation as impossible to grasp and boring. I feel it is my job to disprove both notions.

My teaching philosophy is based on the belief that my students' needs are of the utmost importance and that students learn best when they are actively engaged. I am committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of my business is from repeat customers and referrals.

I specialize in physics and mathematics, from introductory mechanics and electromagnetism to algebra, calculus, and even quantum mechanics. This allows me to focus on the nuances of technical learning and education.

I have been a Professor of Physics at a local community college for three years. I was a teaching assistant, earning an Outstanding Teaching Associate of the Year Award from the American Association of Physics Teachers for 2008.

Please feel free to contact me with questions and to set up an appointment.

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.

Linear Algebra

I took a semester long class in linear algebra as part of my physics bachelor's program at UC Berkeley. We went over vectors, matrices, matrix operations, special matrices, and spaces. Furthermore, the material I learned in this class was reinforced when I applied it in my Quantum Mechanics class which uses a great deal of linear algebra and linear algebra notation.

Very patient, deep understand of physics

Lluvia helped me understand kinematics and other physics concepts during my first session with her. I feel more confident about physics thanks to her!
