I am a Pharmacist who graduated from the University of South Carolina (PharmD) in May 2020. I also have a Bachelor's degree in Applied Mathematics (graduated with distinction in mathematics) from San Diego State University (SDSU) as well as two Masters degrees in Pharmaceutical Sciences and Physics from the University of Michigan. I have a broad educational background and can tutor a wide range of subjects that include mathematics (elementary through college), physics (elementary - college), and other sciences. My years of academic and research experience have given me a strong working understanding of math and science principles because I use them on a daily basis. My true calling is teaching and I would love to share my knowledge with you because I know that the key to learning is to focus on the fundamental principles that govern the subject. My tutoring experience goes as far back as high school when I would tutor a few of my classmates and community college students in algebra and geometry. In college, I facilitated both a Calculus I and Calculus III workshop for the LSAMP program on SDSU campus. In addition, I tutored two LSAMP students for the GRE and both were accepted into competitive graduate programs. All in all, teaching and tutoring is not merely my hobby but a career that I respect and enjoy greatly - I love to see students learning.
Leo has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering 4 questions submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.
Highly Recommend Leo!!!
This was my son’s first lesson with Leo to help him prepare for a Physics test. Not only did Leo organize the lesson into exactly what would help him prepare to do his best on the test. He also caught him up on were he was weak in his understanding of concepts and taught him higher level formulas to help him succeed. My son aced the test. I would highly recommend Leo. My son loved working with him.Jodi, 1 lesson with Leo
Responsive and knowledgeable
Leo provided my daughter with 2 lessons in the span of one evening -- hugely grateful! While we are still waiting on the results of her latest test -- she is hopeful!Virginia, 4 lessons with Leo
A knowledgeable tutor!
The guy knows his salt, and is willing to help someone understand every step of the problem, even if it's a particularly long problem with many, many steps. The fact he uses Zoom instead of Wyzant's built-in feature is a little odd, but no biggie!Micah, 2 lessons with Leo
a passion for teaching
Leo was willing to stay extra time after the full Hour to continue helping my son fully understand the topic they were working on. You can tell Leo has a sincere interest to support his students. So happy I found LeoNatalie , 12 lessons with Leo
Absolutely wonderful !
My son had his first session with Leo this week. I have experienced a hit and miss with tutors at times, but thankfully Leo was amazing !He was patient and very knowledgeable. So happy I chose Leo for my son's physics tutor !Natalie , 12 lessons with Leo
Leo did a great job. My son was extremely impressed and Leo was patient and took his time ensuring my son understood the subject. Highly recommend!Gabriel, 2 lessons with Leo
Leo is an awesome teacher! Not only is he teaching me how to compute or crunch numbers but he also puts an emphasis on helping me understand the concepts behind the number. Up until my first lesson with Leo, I did not know that there is logic behind numbers! I am thrilled and feeling very hopeful for numerically challenged individuals such as myself that a brilliant and extremely skilled teacher like Leo is available at a reasonable rate to help us!Lwenyi, 10 lessons with Leo
Leo is very patient and provides clear answers to your questions, and offers time saving tips as it relates to taking the GRE. I look forward to many more lessons with Leo.Philip, 3 lessons with Leo
Knowledgable and patient tutor
Leo provided me with tools and strategies of approaching geometry, functions, and arithmetic problems. I appreciate his emphasis on practicing Math problems and connecting foundational concepts. His tutoring supplements the online GRE Prep course I have very well. I’m looking forward to our next review session following another practice test.Trina, 2 lessons with Leo
Knowledgable and patient tutor
Leo provided me with tools and strategies of approaching algebra and arithmetic problems, which put me at ease with practicing more on my own. His love for teaching is obvious. I trust his ability to help me improve my GRE score because he has the educational background and work experience.Trina, 2 lessons with Leo
