About Leo


Bio

I am a Pharmacist who graduated from the University of South Carolina (PharmD) in May 2020. I also have a Bachelor's degree in Applied Mathematics (graduated with distinction in mathematics) from San Diego State University (SDSU) as well as two Masters degrees in Pharmaceutical Sciences and Physics from the University of Michigan.

I am a Pharmacist who graduated from the University of South Carolina (PharmD) in May 2020. I also have a Bachelor's degree in Applied Mathematics (graduated with distinction in mathematics) from San Diego State University (SDSU) as well as two Masters degrees in Pharmaceutical Sciences and Physics from the University of Michigan. I have a broad educational background and can tutor a wide range of subjects that include mathematics (elementary through college), physics (elementary - college), and other sciences. My years of academic and research experience have given me a strong working understanding of math and science principles because I use them on a daily basis. My true calling is teaching and I would love to share my knowledge with you because I know that the key to learning is to focus on the fundamental principles that govern the subject. My tutoring experience goes as far back as high school when I would tutor a few of my classmates and community college students in algebra and geometry. In college, I facilitated both a Calculus I and Calculus III workshop for the LSAMP program on SDSU campus. In addition, I tutored two LSAMP students for the GRE and both were accepted into competitive graduate programs. All in all, teaching and tutoring is not merely my hobby but a career that I respect and enjoy greatly - I love to see students learning.

a passion for teaching

Leo was willing to stay extra time after the full Hour to continue helping my son fully understand the topic they were working on. You can tell Leo has a sincere interest to support his students. So happy I found Leo

awesome tutor

Leo did a great job. My son was extremely impressed and Leo was patient and took his time ensuring my son understood the subject. Highly recommend!

Gabriel, 2 lessons with Leo

Awesome Teacher!

Leo is an awesome teacher! Not only is he teaching me how to compute or crunch numbers but he also puts an emphasis on helping me understand the concepts behind the number. Up until my first lesson with Leo, I did not know that there is logic behind numbers! I am thrilled and feeling very hopeful for numerically challenged individuals such as myself that a brilliant and extremely skilled teacher like Leo is available at a reasonable rate to help us!

Patient tutor

Leo is very patient and provides clear answers to your questions, and offers time saving tips as it relates to taking the GRE. I look forward to many more lessons with Leo.

Philip, 3 lessons with Leo

Knowledgable and patient tutor

Leo provided me with tools and strategies of approaching geometry, functions, and arithmetic problems. I appreciate his emphasis on practicing Math problems and connecting foundational concepts. His tutoring supplements the online GRE Prep course I have very well. I’m looking forward to our next review session following another practice test.

Knowledgable and patient tutor

Leo provided me with tools and strategies of approaching algebra and arithmetic problems, which put me at ease with practicing more on my own. His love for teaching is obvious. I trust his ability to help me improve my GRE score because he has the educational background and work experience.

Trina, 2 lessons with Leo

First session

Leo was very helpful and patient. You can tell he really has a vast knowledge of mathematics and is great at explaining the problem and the method that can be used to solve. He really helped me identify key areas what I need to work on while demonstrating problem-solving techniques. Will definitely seek further tutoring sessions from Leo.

Lyna, 7 lessons with Leo

Great teacher

Leo was a great tutor! I will be reaching out to him again soon for another session! We went over kinematics in one dimension and started reviewing kinematics in two dimension.

Caroline, 4 lessons with Leo

Awesome Teacher

Awesome Teacher...Leo's attentiveness to my progress was refreshing. He genuinely cared whether or not I understood the material that we were reviewing. He gave me keep points to review and commit to memory as well as taught me a few new skills. I am excited about the next couple of weeks because I know & believe that I have found the perfect tutor for me.
