Bio

Hi, Parents and Students,

Please feel free to look at my reviews and feedback from current/past students.

I have been tutoring students since 2003 starting in Taiwan where I was the lead tutor for Taipei American School. I had a good relationship with the superintendent there and he referred me to students who needed the biggest boost in their grades.

Hi, Parents and Students,

Please feel free to look at my reviews and feedback from current/past students.

I have been tutoring students since 2003 starting in Taiwan where I was the lead tutor for Taipei American School. I had a good relationship with the superintendent there and he referred me to students who needed the biggest boost in their grades. I tutored math and sciences there from beginner level to advanced AP and IB courses. I have also tutored Chinese to students and adults in Taiwan. I left Taiwan in 2006 and have been tutoring students in Hawaii since. I recently moved to Boston in 2011 and am glad to see there is a strong academic focus in the city and a belief that tutoring can improve a student's academic performance.

I used to be a full-time engineer helping people save money on energy and water. San Francisco Housing and Boston Housing Authority are my clients. I tutor at night or on the weekends. Previous to that I traded convertible bonds in Taipei Taiwan and obtained my MBA from National Taiwan University.

I got a 5 (highest possible score) on AP chemistry, and calculus in high school. I graduated from Obama's High School in Hawaii, Punahou, in the top 10% of my class. Most of my classmates in the top 10% attended the top 10% of colleges in the US such as Ivy Leagues, MIT, CalTech, Stanford, etc. I attended Northwestern and majored in Engineering. Any science course is not difficult for me such as chemistry, organic, biology, biochemistry, or thermodynamics). Any math courses are fine as well. I can also teach Mandarin Chinese with no problem. Do you need help with Chinese characters? I developed a method to assist people around the world with being able to read and write Chinese characters. I also have my MBA from National Taiwan University, and thus can assist you in the GMAT. My SAT scores were 90% or higher in 1998, and the MCAT isn't a problem either.

I received a 12 in PS in MCATs and have tutored numerous students in Economics, and Physics, Chemistry and math.

Please let me know how I can help you.

enormously helpful!

Roger is enormously helpful in wading through a complicated Econ project I am doing. His insight and clear guidance is working. Couldn't do this without him that is for sure!

Pamela, 8 lessons with Roger

Very Impressed

Roger's background in engineering, finance, and medicine gives him a unique advantage as a tutor. He has a broad understanding of many topics and has consistently helped me solve tough problems in several of my challenging science and math courses. He is a great tutor and I am sure that I will refer to his expertise for years to come!

Sam, 1 lesson with Roger

Great Tutor

Roger is a great tutor who helped my son with pre-calculus. He was very knowledgeable about the subject. My son states Roger breaks down the concepts so it is easy to understand.

Delmaude, 2 lessons with Roger

Great Tutor

Roger is a great tutor; my daughter has been happy with his tutoring and feels much more confident in her understanding of AP Chemistry after working with him. He has a high level of knowledge in the subject matter, can answer all of her questions, and conveys the information in a way that she understands. Overall this has been a positive experience and I would recommend Roger to anyone looking for a tutor in any of the subjects that he provides tutoring in.

Niquette, 16 lessons with Roger

Great tutor.

I had my first tutoring session with Roger yesterday and he was really good! I had no idea about Finance and Econ and he was very patient and explained everything clearly as well. Easy to contact him and he also replies very quickly. Would definitely recommend him for tutoring!!

Radhika, 2 lessons with Roger
