About Tam

*** I am available on weekdays after 7pm and weekends ***

I am a chemist, graduated from the University of the Sciences - USci - in 2011, currently working at a gas analyzer manufacturer. Born and raised in Vietnam, I came to the U.S. in 2004 and completed my high school and college degrees here. I have experience tutoring and instructing chemistry laboratory to undergraduate students during my years at USci. I am currently tutoring a high school student in various subjects, and science is always my strong area.

Being grateful to my parents for their continuous support for my education, I believe that education is the only way to advance in life. Education does not only include the accumulation of knowledge but also the application of what you have learned and the attitude associated with your application. Everything has to come in a package.

I enjoy tutoring, particularly tutoring teenagers. When I was 12 or so, I had a tutor, or exactly, a mentor. She not only tutored me but also inspired me to grow to be a useful person in life. I am thankful to have had my tutor-mentor-best friend with me through my rebellious years. Therefore, now, I would love to guide teenagers to go through their period of try-to-find-my-way and also inspire them to reach higher education and become useful members in the society.

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.

Fantastic communicator and tutor. Takes a real interest in your student's success. — This is our second year using Tam as a tutor for our daughter. The first time is was with Pre-Algebra and I'm happy to say that she passed the school year with an A. This time she is helping our daughter with Geometry. My daughter was excited to see Tam. She loves her personality and it was like seeing an old friend. I highly recommend her. ...
