I am an energetic, thoughtful, dedicated instructor who designs his own lesson plan for any field of math and science for any age. My fourteen years of experience in teaching college students at the University of California, Berkeley, have prepared me to teach motivated minds and see them succeed. My past students have gone on to be doctors, lawyers, and even teachers like myself. My method of choice for tutoring is hands on one on one tutoring with the students doing active learning where they are applying what they learn to real life situations. They can apply this knowledge so that they can see future applications. I find that this method helps them visualize future skill sets where they would find joy doing a certain job. I have also taught in a huge classroom setting and I find that it is a necessary skill to learn in a large group format so that you do not get lost in the crowd. I always encourage students to ask as many questions as possible and do my best to always provide them with a thoughtful answer. In time, I hope to be a trusted friend and compatriot who will provide life long advice to my fellow students.

Sports/Recreation

Basketball

Basketball

I have lived breathed and played basketball my whole life. I have played organized basketball since grade school and have been a leader on the court and have always coached my teammates as a point guard. I was heavily recruited coming out of high school, but turned the opportunity down because I wanted to further my studies as an engineer. My credentials are that I played 2 years of high school basketball at Oak Grove High School. We won our division both years that I played and made it to the final of the CCS championships the last year that I played. To this day, I use my knowledge of biomechanics to help players improve their game and learn better techniques to improve shooting, dribbling, and defense.

Test Preparation

MCAT,

MCAT

As an active instructor of Physics and General Chemistry for over 10 years at the Berkeley Review (MCAT Preparatory center), I am well versed on this testing manner. Along with my background in Bioengineering, I am well versed to teach the Biological Sciences. My qualifications comes from my score of 36T(PS 13; VR 10; BS 13, WS T)to teach this subject matter. For physics, I can teach all topics from translational motion to light and optics. - Translation Motion(vector/scalar notation, breaking vectors into components, trig review, simple kinematic equations, graph analysis of x vs t; v vs t; a vs t, projectile motion, and range) - Force, Motion, Gravitation(Newton's laws, force problem recipe, statics and dynamics problem analysis, test taking tips, gravitational force, uniform circular motion, rotational kinetics) - Work and Energy(Work=Fparallel*d, PE(gravitational and elastic), KE, work-energy theorem, heat energy(Q=mCpT), Hooke's Law, Conservation of Energy, Power) - Torque and Momentum(t=Fperpendicular*lever arm, equilibrium problems, moment of inertia, momentum, conservation of momentum, collisions(elastic/inelastic), angular momentum) - Periodic Motion & Waves(simple harmonic motion, oscillating blocks, pendulum, period and frequency, damping of waves, transverse waves, longitudinal waves, interference, standing waves) - Sound & Doppler(longitudinal wave, wave of pressure/displacement variation, speed of sound in different mediums, sound intensity, intensity level, resonance, closed pipe system, open pipe system, beat frequency, Doppler Effect) - Fluids and Solids(hydrostatic pressure vs total pressure, Pascal's Principle, Archimedes' principle, viscous fluid flow, laminar vs turbulent flow, Poiseuille's Principle, Reynold's Number, Continuity law, Bernoulli's Equation, Young's modulus, Shear modulus, Bulk modulus) - Electrostatics & Electromagnetism( Coulomb's law, electric fields, dielectrics, induced dipole, work=electric PE, electric potential, magnetic fields, right hand rule, magnetic force, mass spec.) - Electric Circuits(conductors, insulators, resistance, ohm's law, energy from battery, power dissipation, Kirchoff's Loop and Junction Rule, resistors in series/parallel, capacitors in series/parallel, capacitance, RC circuits) - Light and Optics(EM spectrum, speed of light, energy of light, doppler shift, index of refraction, polarization, dispersion, law of reflection, snell's law, total internal reflectance, thin lens and mirror equation, plane mirror, convex/concave mirror, convex/concave lens, images are UV or IR, myopia, hyperopia, converging and diverging devices, young's double slit experiment, thin film interference) Each one of these above is a two hour class that I teach for the Berkeley Review. For General Chemistry, I have taught everything from electron theory, VSEPR, and periodic trends to Thermochemistry. - Electron Theory, VSEPR, periodic trends(s, p,d,f orbitals, electron configuration, Pauli's exclusion principle, Hund's Rule, Aufbau Principle, quantum number, periodic trends, Zeffective, VSEPR Theory, emitted color vs reflected color, color wheel, photoelectric effect) - Equilibrium, Kinetics, Le Chatelier's Principle(equilibrium constant, reaction quotient, Keq, steady state vs equilibrium, ICE equation, partial pressures, iodide experiment, le chatelier's, gibbs' free energy, kinetics, rxn rates, Beer's Law, 0th, 1st, 2nd order kinetics) - Stoichiometry, Solutions and Solubility(moles, STP definition IUPAC vs EPA, molecular vs empirical formula, combustion hydrocarbon analysis, solvents, solutes, molarity, molality, dilutions, solubility, Ksp, salt dissociation, saturated and supersaturated, molar solubility, common ion effect, ion exchange) - Gases and Gas Laws(Boltzmann distribution, ave root mean square speed of a gas particle, Vander Waal's Equation, Ideal gas law, Avogrado's law, Boyle's Law, Charles' Law, KE of gas particles, effusion, diffusion, infusion, partial pressures) - Phase Changes(Phase diagrams, evaporation, condensation, melting, freezing, sublimation, deposition, heating curves, phase change theory, distillation, Raoult's Law, calligrative properties) - Thermochemistry & Thermodynamics(energy diagrams, exergonic, endergonic, enthalpy, Hess' law, heat of formation, bond energies, calorimetry, heat transfer(convection, conduction, radiation, evaporation), heat engines(carnot cycle, heat pumps, heat engine) I have specifically taught each of the above courses in general chemistry. For biological sciences, I can teach anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, immunology, genetics, and neurology. For Writing Sample, I received T on my MCAT and know how to break a prompt down to the x-factor and have a paragraph for the pros and one paragraph for the cons to handle the normative statement from the prompt.

A+ efficient tutor

I've had 3 different tutors here from Wyzant before I met with Khoi. I met with them for 2 hours twice a week, 1.5 hours once a week, and 3.5 hours twice a week. They all did not make Calculus any easier for me. They just re explained what my professor would explain, which was confusing. However, when I met with Khoi, he explained everything very efficiently and we got through more work in 1.5 hours in than I would have gotten in 3 hours with my previous tutors. I tend to overthink the subject but he makes Calculus seem very easy. This was my first session and I plan on continuing my sessions with him for the rest of the semester.

Yvon, 12 lessons with Khoi

Great Tutor

Our son was doing C level work in math and science when he started working with Khoi two years ago. The progress he has made has been amazing. He has gone from doing C level work to consistently doing A level work in his math and science classes. The progress culminated this semester when our son received an A+ in Physics. Without help from Khoi our son would not have become a consistent A level student. Khoi has been reliable and consistent. Khoi knows when to give encouragement yet he is also consistently challenging our son to push himself harder. Khoi has made a tremendous difference in our son's study habits and confidence in his approach to his school work.

Great Tutor

I'm a high school student with some major issues in writing, but I'm improving. When I found Khoi in 6th grade, my writing was a mess. I had no unity of thought, no sentence variety, and no logic. He tutored me until 8th grade, when I decided to stop. But in high school, I found that my writing was no longer up to par with high school standards, and so I asked Khoi once again for help. He came back to help and he has always been an excellent educator. Khoi is very patient, but strict. He pushes you to be the best you can be, but it never feels like he is demanding too much of you. This in turn facilitates learning and all his lessons are engaging and very insightful. Highly recommended.

Knowlegdeable tutor

Khoi has thorough subject knowledge which helped go over all the FRQs real quick. . Within an hour he was able to cover the whole topic and also made sure that I understood all the concepts.

Rithin, 1 lesson with Khoi

Fantastic Tutor! The Best I've Ever Had!

I went from a D to an A in Calculus with his help. He's patient, easy to talk to, very knowledgeable and always has a happy demeanor. He not only teaches you how to do the problem but also teaches you how to understand it and this has really helped me in the long run!

Nicolette, 36 lessons with Khoi

Great Tutor Who Knows His Stuff

I have been tutoring with Khoi for roughly 3 months now and I have nothing but good things to say. He is very on top of the material and is an excellent resource for all things about the GRE and has a really amazing and impressive handle on the concepts that are necessary to get a good score. On top of all of that, he is very patient and is always willing to make time for me. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
