In-person tutoring note: I currently only offer in-person tutoring on UCSD's campus.

I have been TA'ing and tutoring students for three years through my high school. I have tutored chemistry, math, biology, computer science, history, English, and AP versions of the above. My high school tutees consistently reported excellent feedback, with many becoming repeat students. One, who I helped through AP Calculus AB & BC, logged over 45 hours with me.

In-person tutoring note: I currently only offer in-person tutoring on UCSD's campus.

I have been TA'ing and tutoring students for three years through my high school. I have tutored chemistry, math, biology, computer science, history, English, and AP versions of the above. My high school tutees consistently reported excellent feedback, with many becoming repeat students. One, who I helped through AP Calculus AB & BC, logged over 45 hours with me.

I enjoy tutoring for the moments when a tricky concept finally makes sense to my students. For this reason, I have a repertoire of metaphors and silly comparisons which attempt to make complicated science/math concepts understandable. Patience and trying different kinds of explanation, in my experience, will always work for a student who is trying to learn. I am a straight-A student willing to help others gain the understanding I have used to succeed.

I have helped two long-term math students through my high school's tutoring club, and helped both of them achieve their desired grades through many hours of after school work. I have taken math up to the AP Calculus and Calc 3/Linear Algebra.

I have TA'ed a chemistry class thrice, and a biology class once. In addition to helping students during those classes, and tutoring a few long-term students for each, I have covered AP Chemistry office hours a few times. I have taken up to AP Chemistry, AP Biology, and AP Physics 1&2.

I have been programming since I was in mid-elementary school, and have several complex projects (some for a bioinformatics class, a physics simulator, some interactive games, etc.) in various languages under my belt. These have given me a good conceptual understanding of how programming/OOP works, which I have tutored previous students in. I have taken AP Computer Science A and Programming Abstractions (Stanford's CS106B).

I'd love to hear from anyone interested in my tutoring, it would be my pleasure. Please do contact me so we can discuss scheduling.

Computer Programming

I've been doing coding off and on since mid-elementary school, and have at this point completed several medium-sized projects (mostly games made for fun). I have a good understanding of the reasoning and structure behind how to plan and create complex projects, and plenty of debugging skills.

Knowledgable and friendly tutor

My daughter loved working with her. She helped her with Algebra 1 class, she undid some misconceptions my daughter had about math. Looking forward to working with her again.

knowledgeable and friendly tutor

Faith understood the chemistry material I was struggling with. There was no concept she could not help me understand during my lesson. She helped me understand what I missed on my midterm as well as help me get an understanding of current material in my general chemistry class.

Faith is MORE than a tutor

Faith met my child where she was in her learning. She responded to her needs including my daughters insistence on being referred to in the they/them pronoun form. She’s very responsive to me as a parent including offering worksheets and quizzes for lesson guidance. She responds to message queries quite quickly! I would recommend Faith as a tutor for your child every day of the week and twice on Sunday!

Very Patient

Faith explained very well and was very patient whenever I didn’t get the problems. Will go to her again for more lessons! (:
