Award-Winning Calculus Tutors in San Diego, CA
Jason "...I have hundreds of hours of experience tutoring Math, Chemistry, Biology, and Physics of all levels. I was awarded tutor of the year in 2008-2009 at Mesa College. I have had tremendous success with past students where most of them end up with an A or B in their class. I make the subject very easy and understandable for the student and relieve the frustration that often accompanies these subjects..."
Shane "I recently graduated with my Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering, previously earning my BS in Bioengineering and with Post-Baccalaureate study in Mechanical Engineering. I was a student instructor for about 4 years in engineering and tutored student athletes throughout my undergrad. My favorite subjects are generally in the STEM category and I really enjoy helping others understand those concepts. My teaching style has always been to really engage students through humor and real world situations; really makes subjects like math and physics easier to relate to..."
Christopher "...I am currently working towards a Bachelor of Sciences in Computer Science, as well as a Minor in Economics. Throughout my entire high school career, I tutored in every math I took from Geometry to AP Calculus BC, as well as Chemistry, all with great results from all of my peers. While I can tutor in most subjects, I particularly enjoy tutoring Chemistry and higher level Mathematics, like Calcuus or Pre-Calculus, because I myself am very passionate about these subjects, and think about many the core concepts a lot outside of class, so I have a wholesome understanding of them. I always like to emphasize "the basics" or "the building blocks" when I tutor, because oftentimes these concepts can be easily forgotten, and having a more wholesome understanding of the basics can almost always make the rest of a subject "click," especially in math or hard sciences..."
UCSD - BS, Computer Science
Chris "...I worked at Mesa College in the Math and Science Tutoring Center, where I also tutored Mechanical Engineering and beginning Japanese. I have enjoyed each subject I've studied; my favorite is Physics in that its study is so far reaching from sub-atomic quarks to black hole singularities. Overcoming my own difficulties with mathematics and English has encouraged me to help other people overcome their difficulties. I am very patient and try to make the assignments as interesting as possible to draw in students that are having difficulties with a subject, as well as offer advanced tips and techniques to students doing very well..."
William "I am a recent graduate from UCSD with a Masters in Mathematics and with a Bachelors in Applied Mathematics from Georgia Tech. I have a strong analytical background and years of experience tutoring primarily Mathematics ranging across most levels of learning. While teaching, it is most important to figure how to best relate some of the more abstract, underlying concepts in a more recognizable form. Once accomplished, most of the information becomes much easier to absorb.."
Danielle "... I was a teacher's assistant in a junior high math class as well as a high school math class. My passion is teaching students math. In the Fall I will be going to get my Master's in Education and my Teaching Credential to teach math at the junior high and high school levels. I also love sports! I played four years of collegiate soccer and I am currently playing for the San Diego Sea Lions Semi-Professional soccer team..."
Matt "...in Molecular Biology from the Scripps Research Institute. The subjects I tutor are math (geometry, algebra/trigonometry, calculus), chemistry, biology and astronomy, as well as test prep for the SAT, GRE and LSAT. I have some experience in college teaching, but most of what I have done is one-on-one instruction of college students and graduate students in a laboratory, as well as helping my 11-year old son with homework. I really prefer teaching people individually because many people do not learn well in a classroom situation, and it's easy for someone to get left behind without anyone knowing or caring..."
Marcus "...My favorite subject to teach is Geometry, I like the real world applications and how you can usually approach a problem from multiple viewpoints - all of them correct! I'd describe my teaching and thus tutoring philosophy as centered around building a solid base set of skills: focus on figuring out what a problem is asking and how to apply what we then know about the subject. Usually a lot of frustration comes in mathematics when you just "do", but have no idea what or why - as soon as they change one thing, everything will fall apart. Personality wise you'll rarely see me without a smile on my face, I enjoy what I do and I think learning is a lot more fun when you're quick with a laugh. Outside of teaching mathematics I love being outdoors (why I moved here to sunny California): running, hiking, surfing (very new beginner), or really anything..."
Surabhi "...I have worked with students of a vast variety of age groups and subjects. I love science and I love teaching. Of all the science subjects that I tutor, chemistry is my favorite. I have studied it beyond the text books and have my own tricks and techniques to learn the material. My second favorite is math/algebra which serves as a good brain exercise..."
Hafid "I have tutored since high school, where I began tutoring junior high students in math. Since then, I have helped students (including medical students doing hospital rotations) succeed in academics. I have improved a lot in my teaching methods and make each session high energy and interactive. Most recently I did a pediatrics internship at UCSF-Fresno, but with my background in the biotechnology industry, I'd like to go back into research..."
