About Thien-An

I'm a college graduate passionate about learning. I graduated cum laude from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County with a degree in Biology and minors in Chemistry and Writing. Most of my experience has been gleaned from my college experience. Teaching is an essential study tool for learning, the better you teach, the better your grasp on the material. Throughout high school and college, I used this method to teach fellow peers, and I have found that it has worked well. In addition, I worked with the chemistry laboratory program at my college, to create a curriculum that was accessible to students and taught by professors and TAs. As a recent student, I understand the frustrations of learning in large groups through methods that may not work for you. I like to tackle these problems through visual learning, worksheets, and discussion in order to make difficult concepts comprehensible.

With 100+ hours of experience, I specialize in tutoring basic biology, chemistry, math (up to differential equations and multivariable calculus) and English. My goal during each tutoring session is to guide the student through the problem-solving process rather than to the answer. With most subjects, it takes a lot of practice to learn how to properly apply what you've learned. I'm patient and am willing to walk through countless problems with you until you can grasp the application on your own.

In addition to the STEM field, I was published in my school's literary magazine several times and I have spent many hours proofreading my peers' literary reviews, scientific papers and medical school applications. With a strong background in grammar, I can help with semantics and syntax.

I look forward to working with you and helping you through any study challenges you may face!

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.
