About Nghia

I have been a tutor for the majority of my undergraduate education at University of California, Berkeley. I tutored students in an array of science courses during my undergraduate years. I have tutored students in physiology, genetics, cell biology, and nutritional sciences. Additionally, after obtaining my baccalaureate degree in two majors: Public Health and Molecular and Cell Biology, I tutored students who were all in different grades, ranging from elementary school all the way to high school. I am proficient in topics dealing with the math and sciences. These subjects might seem confusing, but I promise to do my best to help anyone be fully prepared for the exams and to understand the topic as effectively as possible.

I have been a tutor or about 5 years now. I have experience tutoring students via one-on-one, in a group setting, and with after school tutoring. I enjoy teaching students and I hope to assist them in succeeding in any way possible. I have tutored biology for 4+ years. I can assist anyone in AP Biology, high school biology, and high school chemistry. I am a medical student at Loyola University Chicago and so I am adept to anatomy, physiology, as well as cell biology. I also have experience working as a classroom tutor for elementary students, middle school students, and high school students. I can also teach elementary school math, pre- algebra, and algebra 1. I have also privately tutored students in algebra II/ trigonometry as well as AP Calculus. If you need help on any of these subjects, let me know. I'll do my best to assist you. My philosophy is to teach students the necessary information that are on their exams and are emphasized by their instructors. I want to utilize time wisely to teach students what is most important for their classes so that they do well. I want to optimize results for my students while being efficient with their time.

Some of my credentials include graduating cum laude from UC Berkeley, being on the Dean's List, and being a member of Phi Beta Kappa honor society. Let me know if you are interested in having me as your tutor or as a tutor for your kid. If you want to inquire more, contact me. I'll do my best to accommodate your schedule.

All the best!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been a tutor for elementary students before. I've taught students one- on- one as well as in a group setting. I have knowledge ranging from elementary math all the way to the biological sciences. I have tutored elementary students in math, varying from simple arithmetic to more advanced topics such as fractions and linear equations. Additionally, I have taught students English comprehension, helping them with their grammar and spelling. Furthermore, I have tutored students in the physical and biological sciences. Lastly, world history and U.S. history are topics I have taught in the past as well. I felt it most effective when students are given examples to utilize their knowledge after learning about the subject.

Genetics

At my undergraduate campus, I learned about Mendelian Genetics thoroughly. I did well on the exams and got an A. I understand the different modes of inheritance, pedigree analysis, and probability factors. I also took genetics in medical school and have taught it.

Handwriting

In grade school, I understood the proper way to write in cursive. I have the instructions and the patience to teach handwriting to other students in elementary school. I still utilize cursive and it is very pertinent in improving penmanship. I have taught students how to write in cursive before.

Public Speaking

I took a class in public speaking during my undergraduate education. Additionally, I was on the speech and debate team for many years, at times winning accolades for my speeches. I have given many formal and informal speeches in the past, and I have techniques to assist others in this endeavor. I know the rules and the different modes of speaking strategies that are necessary to be successful when communicating in front of others. I feel it is best to utilize these rules via practicing in speeches. That way, we can assess what skills and qualities are established and what other factors need to be addressed in the person.

Vietnamese

I am a native Vietnamese speaker. I took a year of Vietnamese and have used it on a daily basis. I know all the tonal marks as well as the alphabet. I am proficient in the grammar and spelling of the Vietnamese language. I can teach others how to write as well as how to speak it.
