About Garfield

Hi, my name is Garfield. I attended UCSD and graduated with a Bachelors of Science degree in marine biology. Throughout my undergraduate career, I have been a research assistant in multiple ecology and physiology labs and a teaching assistant in intro level biology and upper division ecology. I am currently a second year graduate student at Scripps Institution of Oceanography studying fish behavior and physiology. In my spare time, I illustrate science by drawing comics and publishing it online.

Throughout the years, I have intermittently tutored students in a variety of subjects including English, math (K-12), and biology. I am also an immigrant and moved from Hong Kong when I was 8 years old. Because of my upbringing, I have a heart for teaching to under-served populations and founded the City Heights Outreach Ministry Program that tutored and taught refugees in the City Heights area. This experience provided me with the perspectives and skills to tutor other recent immigrants, no matter the age.

In total, I have a total of 3+ years of experience teaching subjects such as geometry, pre-algebra, algebra 1 and algebra 2. I have taught elementary education in organized summer camps as well as through City Heights Outreach Ministry Program. I have assisted in teaching biology in two different undergraduate courses. I am also a current graduate student in marine biology studying fish physiology and neuroscience. I have taught elementary education in organized summer camps as well as through City Heights Outreach Ministry Program. I have a total of 3+ years of experience.

Lastly, I myself am a visual learner and love explaining concepts and solutions by drawing it out. I love learning, and I would be delighted if you too find joy in learning.
