Hi, I'm Kent! I am a native of Southern California, and an alumnus of North High School in Torrance. For my undergraduate studies I attended UC Berkeley, where I graduated with a B.S. in Molecular Environmental Biology. I'm currently working as an optician at an optometry office in my hometown, and will be applying to optometry school this upcoming summer.
My hobbies include watching TV and movies (probably a little too much), hiking, and baseball. My favorite movies are The Social Network, Toy Story, and Guardians of the Galaxy. My favorite TV shows are Parks and Recreation, Scrubs, and Breaking Bad. Currently, I am binge-watching Mad Men in between work and studying.
I wanted to be a tutor because of my own struggles with academics. My parents are immigrants and don't speak a lot of English, so by the time I was in high school, I was pretty independent with regards to my schoolwork. I couldn't have made it through my formative school years without the help of my own tutors. I understand from first hand experience how important it is to have a educational support group to succeed in school. It's very rewarding to see how much of a difference you can make in a student's life by giving them a few nudges in the right direction!
