About Tiglath

While I was studying at my community college: Berkeley City College, I volunteered to become a lab assistant and tutor during Spring and Summer 2012 for general and introductory chemistry classes. It was during this period that I realized that tutoring is very rewarding. What I love about it is when students realize that they have grasped the main concepts. This gives me satisfaction as I know that they will able to apply them in any kind of situation.

I try to focus on the key concepts, because learning these is very important. Unfortunately, students are usually bombarded with definitions that they try to memorize without actually understanding the underlying ideas.

While I have a 24 hour cancellation policy, I try to be flexible. I look forward to meet with you and help you with your studies.

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.

Biochemistry

I have a B.S degree in Chemical Biology. My experience in learning Molecular Biology is that you believe that you have to memorize pages of notes and names. However this is not true. What you realize is that Molecular Biology is very logical. This is what I try to focus on. Once you learn the logic, then there you'll notice that there is no need to memorize anything.

Biology

I have a B.S degree in Chemical Biology and a solid background in biology. What I learned from studying biology is that what's most important is not just memorizing names but actually understanding what is happening. Therefore as a tutor I try not overwhelm students with names but rather teach them the essential underlying biology. Once they have understood it then it will make it easier for them to insert the names.

Chemistry

I have a B.S degree in Chemical Biology from UC Berkeley. In spring and summer 2012 I volunteered to become a lab assistant and tutor for chemistry classes at my community college. During this time I saw that students were not able to apply what they learned to solve assigned problems. Therefore I began to teach them step by step the basic skills that they had not learnt and I found out that this method was very successful.

Organic Chemistry

I have a B.S degree in Chemical Biology from UC Berkeley. When I applied to UC Berkeley, I completed the university's organic chemistry requirement by taking and passing the American Chemical Society Organic Chemistry exam. Furthermore, My Chemical Biology major required a good working knowledge of organic chemistry. In my experience from learning organic chemistry, the most successful method is to teach the basic skills step by step to gain confidence and a deep understanding of the subject.
