About Fandi

Hello! I graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) in 2016 with a B. S. in Physics. Currently, I am seeking a M. S. in Data Science at the University of Virginia (UVA). I have been tutoring infrequently since the end of high school. I enjoy working with people of all backgrounds and of all ages. I am generally very capable of teaching and tutoring any maths and sciences up to the highest high school level, and I can tutor maths and physics for any college course.

I like to see people challenge themselves. It is always good to succeed, but failure is unavoidable and can even be beneficial. Every person should decide what success means to themself. I believe that if you genuinely feel good about your work, the merits will come.

I was a participant and one of the school-wide top scorers in the AMC 10, AMC 12, and AIME. (high school mathematics competitions) I was the president of my high school chapter for Mu Alpha Theta, the national high school & two-year college mathematics honor society. As part of my undergraduate physics degree, I learned a lot of advanced mathematics that are useful across many science and engineering disciplines.

I hold a Bachelor of Science in Physics degree. I began learning physics in high school, so I know what it is like to take AP physics classes, AP physics tests, and the SAT II Physics test as well as how to earn a high score. I have experience in experimental physics including experimental research, but theoretical physics is my specialty. I really enjoy reading physics textbooks and having conversations about physics theory.

Feel free to contact me anytime; I will usually respond between 10 p.m. and 3 p.m.. I am happy to meet anywhere convenient for you, but I also do not have a car. I am close to the transit system, though, so hopefully we can work something out.

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.

I contacted Fandi because my ability to keep up with my physics work (college-level) was slipping quickly and I needed a guide. My homework would take me 2 excruciatingly stressful hours to at best get a 70, but usually below a 50. Fandi worked with me, letting me direct the conversation and then him gently steering me in the right way. He has a perfect balance of letting me struggle a little bit
