About Brett

I am a young professional with a bachelor's degree in Biochemistry from UCLA. I have tutored on and off for over 6 years, usually through a mutual friend or relative of the student. I anticipate the opportunity to put my skills to use in a more professional tutoring environment.

I love tutoring for the spiritual fullness it creates. I feel that I have given back to the community by going out of my way to help others. Also, I enjoy having a job that gravitates around one of my chief interests: chemistry. My students and their parents alike have universally admired my positive spirit, calm nature, and comprehensive knowledge of the hard sciences.

I am passionate about chemistry. I absolutely love it. I obtained my degree in Biochemistry from UCLA in December 2013, and I have a thorough knowledge of the fundamentals of biology and chemistry at both the high school and college levels. I tutored freelance in 2014 for a high school student, and he aced every single one of his exams.

I have been diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome myself, so I understand the unique trials and tribulations of living with it firsthand. I have worked with an Asperger's student in the past, and my relaxed and patient demeanor worked wonders to keep him calm and focused.

Please feel free to contact me to plan or schedule tutoring sessions. I check my email multiple times a day, so expect a nice, quick reply. I'm looking forward to hearing from you!

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.

Biology

I got straight A's in my high school and college biology courses. I have a thorough understanding of the subject and a passion for its complexity and elegance.

Chemistry

I have been fascinated by chemistry as long as I can remember. I completed high school and college inorganic and organic chemistry with grades at or near the top of my class. I have a BS in Biochemistry from UCLA.

Knowledgeable tutor

Brett taught me concepts about acids, bases, buffers, and titration curves. I learned a lot of information within an hour and a half. I would recommend Brett's tutoring practices to anyone that needs help with General Chemistry.
