Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Physics tutors in Pasadena, CA
"My goal is to help each and every student I work with find the academic subject that sparks their passion for learning. Being a visual learner myself, I have always had to create tools, draw pictures, or make games for myself in order to learn, and I bring that to my tutoring style. I truly believe that any student has the capacity to learn and excel in academics--it's up to the tutor/teacher to find a creative way to teach! The sciences are my specialty, as evidenced by my college major as well as my medical school preparation, but I have worked with students in all academic areas, from English/Language Arts to the college application process, ...

"As a result though, I have come to enjoy and appreciate math. I find it to be incredibly interesting, and I am fascinated by how structured, exact and useful it is. This is why I enjoy teaching math, and I hope to pass on this excitement to those I tutor. Aside from math, I enjoy spending time with friends, watching The Office and Giants baseball, and most importantly, running. At Pepperdine, I competed on the Cross Country and Track team and now I am an assistant coach at Cal Lutheran."

"I've worked with a wide range of students from middle school age all the way up to college level. English is easily my favorite subject to tutor. Few things are quite as satisfying as introducing a student to the world of literature and enabling them to better express themselves through the written word. However, I was also a proud math team nerd in middle and high school, so I also highly enjoy the mental calisthenics of a good math tutoring session. My verbal and mathematical skills both come in handy for SAT prep as well."

"Though it may be intimidating trying to memorize every bone and tissue in the body, I have learned how to master memorization and hope to share my methods and my passion for science with others who just need a little extra help. I also believe that having a passion unrelated to science helps to balance out the rigorous studying, which is why I support the arts, sports, and other extracurriculars. I have tutored various ages from middle school students to undergraduates my age. My strengths are in the sciences and in mathematics, as my foundation is in pre-med courses.
