I have a graduate degree in Neurobiology. I also have a background in mathematics and chemistry. I have a lot of experience working with children,currently work at a non-profit where I coach kids' soccer and help in tutoring and college prep. I am very patient with my students as I know everyone has their own pace of learning. I stay on the same topic until I am certain that student has understood the basic concepts. I don't mind repeating the topic if needed. I also have worked in summer camps with children with special needs. During my time in college I have taken advanced Biology and Chemistry Courses as follows: Immunology, Microbiology, Cell Biology, Ecology, Biotechnology, Inorganic and Analytical Chemistry to name a few. I also feel comfortable with helping out students with term papers and presentations.

Our daughter had her first lesson with Tenzin and it was awesome. He has a very upbeat personality. He mapped out a plan for progress for our daughter. Tenzin also gave her homework, we like that. We could see that our daughter felt more confident after their lesson. After their lesson our daughter said, "I'm really looking forward to our next lesson; he is like a human dictionary."
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.
