"I’ve always loved riddles—the mystery always drives me to put in a full mental effort, and you never know how far away from the answer you are until you reach it. I saw the brain as the world’s biggest riddle, and used that curiosity to get a degree in Neuroscience from Pomona College. My tutoring style aims to teach each student not just the WHAT, the correct answer, but also the HOW, the methods and problem-solving abilities necessary for working out that answer. I guide students and help them work out the answers themselves, making sure that they understand the process at each step of the way." ...

I also completed a one-year Master's in Comparative Literature in France, at the Universite de Paris III, Sorbonne Nouvelle. I am currently based in Seattle, my hometown. I have always had a great passion for teaching; when I had to choose a Senior Project in high school I chose to substitute my math teacher's Algebra and Calculus classes for two weeks and every since, there has hardly been a time in my life when I have not been involved in teaching or tutoring in some capacity, whether it's math, writing, English as a ...

"I help students learn and even enjoy scientific topics by showing them the fundamentals on simple terms. Once a student understands the fundamentals, then the student can approach more advanced topics with confidence. I believe any student can learn any topic at any level with appropriate time and one-on-one attention. I enjoy watching students overcome intimidating material once they learn the fundamentals. Having taken many tests myself, I appreciate the difficulty of preparing and managing time during a test."

I majored in neuroscience and behavior in college, so I learned a lot about biology and psychology, and plan on getting a Master's in bioengineering.
