About Ivy

Need help with Math or Chemistry? Don't worry! I can help. How and why? Because I have had numerous years in solving multiple math problems throughout high school, college and even now in graduate school, though I am a chemistry major. I am originally from Vietnam and moved here when I was in high school. I was competitively trained for provincial/ national Vietnamese mathematics contests, and successfully received the third place in provincial level (also equivalent to state level) in 2007. For three years, I attended California Lutheran University and graduated with a major in Chemistry, two minors in Mathematics and Scientific Computing. With the motivation, enthusiasm, and aspiration to learn more about science, I chose to continue my education at the University of Washington, Seattle, pursuing a Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry.

Even though I am currently a Chemistry major, my field does require me to know advanced-level math to go through numerous modeling/coding systems. I have excelled in multiple mathematics-related projects during my undergraduate career as well as in my current field. A little bit about me: I'm a people person and I love to teach as well as share what I learned with the others. To me, tutoring is not only a job but also a chance to learn, help, and share with others. My goal in teaching is that we will not move on until your student truly understands and feels confident about the materials, and also that we DON'T RUSH. I believe in patience since I truly think practice needs patience to get to the perfection of understanding. I also believe that knowledge does take time to learn and absorb for any individual. My favorite note to self is: not everyone is a natural genius; but we can train our brain to be like one.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me further. I work well with email and I also check it very frequently. :)

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.

Chemistry

I have a Phd in chemistry. Bachelor in chemistry and minor in mathematics.

Vietnamese

I was born and raised in Vietnam and I can speak/write/read the language fluently. Therefore, I strongly believe that I am more than qualified to be a tutor for this subject.
