Bio

Hi future students and parents!!!

My name is Aki, and I was a Physics/Calculus teacher at a small private school located in San Diego. Now, I've relocated to Portland and am a full time tutor, dedicating all my attention to the success of each and every student I have.

Hi future students and parents!!!

My name is Aki, and I was a Physics/Calculus teacher at a small private school located in San Diego. Now, I've relocated to Portland and am a full time tutor, dedicating all my attention to the success of each and every student I have.

I've started tutoring in 2012 at a prestigious tutoring facility. There I had the opportunity to teach a group of high school students SAT and ACT while creating materials for the AP tests. This experience made me realize how much I enjoy teaching! Naturally, I decided to take on teaching as my main occupation in 2015. Students will probably tell you that I'm strict and weird, but they'll also talk about how we develop a friendly, fun and honest environment. I believe developing this relationship is crucial for students to learn.

My main objective as a tutor is to teach students how to learn. At the end, it's not like I can follow them to college and make them succeed. So, I've encouraged many of my students to reduce or even quit tutoring at times when I felt they were ready. Also, this is why I do not prefer to take on last minute and one time students.

Once we start tutoring, please keep in mind to let me know of any adjustments one day in advance. Otherwise the website will charge you for the session missed.

Thank you for reading this long thing, and hope to see you soon!

Geometry

Aki, is amazing. He is clear and approachable. His teaching style is great! My sister had to prepare for a final test and this was her first tutoring experience. She felt extremely confident after her tutoring sessions. We will definitely reach out to him in the future.

Silvia, 2 lessons with Aki

Patient tutor

Aki helped my son with his approach to all physics problems. He was very valuable, patient and I highly recommend. We will probably use Aki again next year for AP Calculus.

Michele, 21 lessons with Aki

Very patient and knowledgeable

Aki is an excellent tutor. He is able to explain the topic and problems so the student understands quickly and thoroughly. In addition, Aki is well prepared for tutoring session ahead time to cover student's needs.

Michael, 1 lesson with Aki

Another solid lesson

Our student is responding very well to Aki's patient and thorough approach. Aki listens and communicates clearly, and is able to help our student understand the topic and practice efficiently.

John, 5 lessons with Aki

Knowledgeable and patient

He teaches me Calculus, as our lesson progresses I become comfortable and I feel like his teaching style caters to my needs of understanding of the topic. I will schedule another session with him. Thank you!

Robert, 2 lessons with Aki

Knowledgeable Tutor

My son needed some help with SAT math. He did well his practice exam but needed some help on difficult problems and Aki is just the person for that. We are very happy to have found Aki. He is responsible, professional and most importantly knowledgeable. We are very happy to have found Aki as my son is a very good student who is very critical about his teachers at school and he was willing to work with AKI.

So helpful!

So appreciate his quick response and thorough communication. Exceeded expectations. Very personable and patient. Very knowledgeable in pre calculus. Would definitely recommend!

Jennifer, 5 lessons with Aki

Excellent knowledge; patient and very in-tune with my son's needs.

Strong geometry knowledge Excellent tutor Accessible and very connected with my son's needs.Highly recommended as a tutor. Purposeful and very focused. A good outcome for my son.

Elga, 4 lessons with Aki

Excellent Math Tutor

Aki, My son finished his Math honors class Very strong, Thank you. He learned a lot, he improved his test taking strength and confidence, and increased his overall grade 12 points from last semester. I'm confident you will be able to get him to an A in his AP math class next semester. Have a great summer, and we will resume in August before school starts.
