About Nam

Hello,

I graduated with a B.S. degree in Chemistry from Yale University. After graduation I went on to medical school at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. I started tutoring under the No Child Left Behind Act in Los Angeles 6 years ago and I have since continued tutoring students privately. I am proficient in all levels of high school math and science and I am familiar with a good number of the curriculums at schools such as Harvard-Westlake, Marlborough, Brentwood, and Loyola.

In regards to my tutoring approach, I find students are more prepared for major tests and finals when they are taught more for understanding of the subject matter vs. memorizing what is needed to pass an upcoming test. Most students have a lot on their plate with school related activities and/or sports on top of multiple demanding subjects with their independent workload. I have found that weekly sessions yield better results by alleviating stress on students for the tougher subjects and reducing review time as midterms and finals approach.

If you are struggling with math or science courses or if your child is having a hard time grasping the concepts of subjects such as Algebra II or Honors Chemistry, allow me to simplify it. Good luck in your studies and I hope to hear from you.

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.

Organic Chemistry

I obtained a B.S. in chemistry from Yale University. This degree required I passed a year long course of organic chemistry plus the accompanying lab. I also took a year of advanced organic chemistry lab.
