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 Tutor

Leo has been tutoring My son in AP Calculus AB for most of the school year and has been doing a great job. My son's scores on tests have had a shocking improvement, all thanks to Leo. He is very knowledgeable and is happy to explain any confusing concept. He is so good that he is actually also tutoring my other son in MATH 1, and he too has seen an improvement in his grades. Leo is overall a great tutor.

Kamran, 32 lessons with Leo

Clear, Knowledgeable, and Super Nice Tutor

Leo has helped me greatly in the subjects of AP Physics and AP Calculus. His explanations are clear, and his notes are super useful to look back on! I really recommend him as a tutor, as he has been a massive help during senior year.

Kamal, 19 lessons with Leo

Very knowledgeable and patient tutor for Calculus 1 in College - Highly Recommend

Leo has helped me very much throughout my Calculus 1 class during my freshman year of college. He has very thoroughly explained concepts and has walked me through various practice problems making sure I understand every step of the way what is being done. He is very patient, truly knows what he is doing and he is definitely an amazing tutor. I highly recommend him as a tutor.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Knowledgeable and patient tutor. We are able to go over various topics regarding algebra college algebra and he’s always very patient and always explains everything twice on the board. He always make sure you’re following along and will come up with other examples to help you further understand. Highly recommend for those who need more time solving problems

Great at explaining AP Physics 1 Concepts

Leo has helped me immensely with my AP Physics classwork since the start of my junior year. Within our 2 hour lesson, he is able to cover and guide me through my homework assignments, utilizing Wyzant's whiteboard tool to clearly explain concepts. I am able to save the whiteboards after to reference anytime. He is also able to help me with honors precalculus topics during weeks when I don't have physics homework. He is very flexible, patient, and I am so thankful to have him as a tutor.
