About Kentaro

As a current mechanical engineering student at Cal Poly Pomona and lifelong motivated learner, I have always had a passion for becoming a part of another's learning process. I have tutored various levels of mathematics to high school students over the course of two years. However, my subjects of expertise are not limited to mathematics. I am also capable of teaching Music, Japanese, Physics, and Computer science in addition to preparing students for SAT and AP Tests.

My previous test scores are the following: SAT (2250/2400), AP Japanese (5), AP Biology (5), AP English Composition (5), AP European History (5), AP Computer Science (4), AP Statistics (4), AP American History (4), and AP Physics AB (4). I have been practicing the viola for 10 years and have been playing pieces such as the Walton William Viola Concerto. I am confident in teaching beginning to intermediate violin/viola students. As a music minor, I am also well-versed in music theory and am also capable of teaching the guitar to intermediate students. In regards to my Japanese skill level, I am fluent in both in writing and reading as well as day-to-day communication. I have passed the highest level of the Japanese-Language Proficiency Test at age 13 and am also capable of typing in Japanese.

I hope to enrich my student's educational experience and further improve my skills as a teacher!

I am usually available past 5:30 pm everyday of the week and will provide lesson materials for the given subjects!

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.

Solidworks

I have a well-rounded skillset to offer as a diligent engineering student who has successfully balanced his studies, extracurriculars, and part time jobs for the past two years. In regards to my engineering studies, I have completed coursework regarding statics, strength of materials, machine design, manufacturing, Matlab, and SolidWorks. In one particular project, I designed a 3D model of a machine to collect and assemble components of a C-clamp. In addition to the design, I have generated a cost report, a bill of materials, and calculations regarding the rate of the C-clamp assembly. I am currently self­-studying engine design and thermodynamics to understand how to increase fuel combustion efficiency. I plan on building a prototype with my friend’s CNC machine once I have a definitive design and the necessary funds. I am determined to work at Honda to gain further insight from accomplished engineers on designing and manufacturing.

Violin

I have practiced violin and viola for 10 years under Eastman School of Music Graduate Scott Hosfield. I am capable of both teaching music theory and technique since I am a music minor at Cal Poly Pomona. My most difficult repertoire include Fantasie Cromatica for Viola and the Walton William Viola Concerto.
