"Since I was a kid, math was my favorite subject all the way to my undergraduate at National University, where I obtained my BS in Computer Science. I could not let my son fail math, since Dad was good at it, so I decided to be his afternoon teacher and started tutoring him every day. That was almost 8 years ago, and now I can proudly say that my son is graduating High School this year with Honors and having passed the AP Calculus BC test with a score of 5. I thought the story would repeat this year with my 12 year old daughter, but fortunately she inherited my math genes." ...

" As my academic background suggests, I am interested in many different subjects (if I could have also studied history, physics and literature, I would have!). I have taught music lessons for over a decade to students of all ages and musical backgrounds. As a result, I have learned how to identify students' learning styles, and most importantly, how to make unpleasant topics interesting -- or at least less unpleasant. Moreover, I have experienced the frustration and the struggles many students face in different subjects. In college as a music major, general math requirements were the bane of my existence. I had to retake classes and ...

"For my undergraduate education, I earned a Bioengineering (Biotechnology) degree from UC San Diego and then earned a Master's of Bioscience degree in two focus tracks: Bioprocessing and Business of Bioscience. My graduate education took place at the Keck Graduate Institute of Applied Life Sciences in Claremont, CA (part of the Claremont College consortium). Most math and science coursework was fairly simple for me to understand all throughout high school, college and ultimately graduate school. On numerous occasions, during my educational years, I ended up explaining and simplifying the majority of the mathematical or ...
