If you're having trouble in your math or science class, I would love to help you get back on your feet. School can be way more fun when you're understanding what's going on in class and you can participate confidently. Homework will no longer feel like torture because you can do it quickly and easily. Maybe you're a college student working your way through a chemistry major or fulfilling a chemistry requirement for your field; I can help you succeed in your college courses too!

I found my passion for science and math education while attaining a baccalaureate of science in Chemistry at the University of California, Berkeley where I worked part-time as a tutor. I began with teaching high school students in math and science at Berkeley High's after-school program for 3 years. My excellent grades landed me another job tutoring physical chemistry and organic chemistry for my college peers at UC Berkeley during my final year. I moved on to become a full-time tutor with now 4 years of success and growing expertise; especially in chemistry curricula and pedagogy for every level from High School AP to Upper-Division Organic and Physical Chemistry to the MCAT exam.

As an experienced tutor, I'm excellent at finding the problem areas quickly so we can spend our time effectively. Lastly, my own education makes me a uniquely qualified tutor: UC Berkeley is consistently ranked 1st in Chemistry by national rankings. My rigorous education taught me calculus, physics, and chemistry at a high-level.

The best part of being a tutor is seeing my students light-up as they finally understand the material and the weight on their shoulders starts slipping away. I look forward to sharing that moment with you!

Good Tutor

Had issues understanding some chemistry concepts and he explained it patiently and in a way that I could comprehend. Highly recommend. Will use his services again.

Sam, 1 lesson with Rodrigo

Love working with Rodrigo!

Rodrigo is amazing! My son was nervous about Chemistry and after sessions with Rodrigo, my son has confidence and feels like he is going to do well by continuing to work with Rodrigo! Rodrigo is able to break down concepts in a way that makes them very easy to understand! Also, we love his flexible schedule and always make some time for my son. I highly recommend him.

Accommodating and patient

He was very patient. He promptly replied to messages and was very helpful He provided different formulas to use. He gave examples to the homework problems and gave suggestions on how to solve the problems.

My Favorite Teacher

Rodrigo is by far the best tutor I’ve ever had. He’s so knowledgeable and kind. I’ve been taking lessons with him for over a year now and he’s gotten me A’s in both calculus and chemistry! He’s very flexible with his times, but most importantly he can explain concepts easily! I wouldn’t be able to achieve what I’ve done in school without Rodrigo! Thank you!

Yahya, 266 lessons with Rodrigo

A great teacher and person!

I was struggling a lot in Ap Chemistry and Rodrigo helped clear all of my confusions. He was extremely patient with all my questions and extremely knowledgeable with everything that had to do with chemistry. Before my lessons I was extremely stressed out and anxious about the class, but after I had all my doubts clear and was ready to ace the class. I also ended up getting a great score on my Ap test and a lot of that had to do with Rodrigo. I had a great time having him as a tutor!

Preethi, 15 lessons with Rodrigo

I went from a state of confusion to clarity.

Dimensional analysis. Molarity. Structures and Dot Structures. Solubility. These are all aspects of chemistry that I had no idea about, until I started working with Rodrigo! With his patience, understanding and expert teaching, he helped me learn. My grade went up two letter grades. I had a great time working with him!

Marci, 34 lessons with Rodrigo

Great teacher

This is one of the best teachers I’ve ever had academically he’s really explain topics really well to me he help me pass chemistry to and I couldn’t ask for a better teacher really patient unfortunately I’ve been having computer issues which has had to cut her session short multiple times but overall this is one of the best chemistry tutors I’ve ever had and I would strongly recommend them.

Rodrigo is Excellent!

Rodrigo has done an awesome job! I highly recommend him! He has been very helpful, flexible and knowledgeable. He has really helped my son understand the subject matter.

Stephanie, 4 lessons with Rodrigo

Patient, good explanations.

Helped me a lot in chemistry. We went through a bunch of hard homework problems and he was very patient and had very clear explanations that helped me understand each specific type of problem.
