About Leo


Bio

I earned a Master’s in Physics from the University of California, San Diego and a Bachelor’s (Magna cum Laude) in Astrophysics from the University of California, Los Angeles. I've tutor math (Algebra 1 to Calculus) and Physics for many years. I’ve also taught physics and physical science in public high schools as a full-time licensed credentialed teacher. I have lots of patience, and my explanations are very clear.

I earned a Master’s in Physics from the University of California, San Diego and a Bachelor’s (Magna cum Laude) in Astrophysics from the University of California, Los Angeles. I've tutor math (Algebra 1 to Calculus) and Physics for many years. I’ve also taught physics and physical science in public high schools as a full-time licensed credentialed teacher. I have lots of patience, and my explanations are very clear.

The very first time I helped another person in math was in the ninth grade when the parents of a classmate asked me to help their son with Algebra 1 word problems after school. It was also around that time that I developed a passion for math and physics. Over the years since, not only have I helped countless students solved math and physics problems, but more importantly, I have helped them gained deeper insights and understanding of the concepts involved.

From many years of tutoring experience, I noticed that many students were just following the mechanical steps of solving math or physics problems. Yes, if you follow all the steps correctly and in the right order you will get the correct answers. Unfortunately, many students do not have insights on what lies beneath those required operations nor do they understand why following the correct steps will led to the correct answer. In order to really master a concept one must have an understanding of what is really happening when moving from one operation to the next. One must develop an insight of how those mechanical steps, step by step, are leading towards the correct solution to the problem. Therefore, when I'm teaching a student, I would go beyond teaching the correct sequence of steps needed to solve a problem. I would also give numerous comments and explanations on why one is doing a particular operation and how that operation will led into the next step.

In my free time, I continue to pursuit my passion of learning math and physics. I would share what I've learned with my students.

Great Science tutor

It was a terrific lesson time! My daughter loved it! She was fully engaged and asking for lessons soon! Thank you, Leo!

Catherine, 214 lessons with Leo

Knowledgeable and Patient for first time user

Leo was great! This was my daughter's first experience using a tutor. He gave us advice on how to prepare for the tutoring session. During the tutoring session he was very kind and patient. We will definitely try to use him again.

Jason, 1 lesson with Leo

10/10, would recommend

Leo is an amazing physics tutor! He breaks down and simplifies the concept until you understand. Throughout all of the lessons I have had with him he is very thorough and doesn’t over complicate key concepts. I highly recommend him for physics tutoring!

Maryam, 4 lessons with Leo

Great Tutor

My daughter had been struggling with Algebra 1. Mr. L. was able to explain it to her and she understood it better. We can continue to work with Mr. L.

Trenelle, 9 lessons with Leo

Great teacher, very informative!

We had our first tutoring session with Leo today in Algebra 1, he did a great job in explaining the problems.

Tiffany , 12 lessons with Leo

Knowledgeable, patient and thorough tutor

Leo taught me integrated 3. He knows how to clearly explain the problem and how to solve it. I look forward to working with Leo my entire junior year in high school.

Zarinah, 9 lessons with Leo

Knowledgeable and patient

He provided good examples and asked questions to help point my daughter in the right direction with solving certain problems. He kept the lesson going and made good suggestions to key areas.
