I am a recent graduate from UCLA with a Bachelor of Science degree in Neuroscience. I have 4 years of tutoring experience teaching all subjects and ages. My tutoring style focuses on the learning needs of the student. I will alter my teaching method depending on how a student learns best. I will also develop my own materials to best cater to the concepts a student is struggling with.
Outside of academics, my main hobbies are surfing and music. I have played bass, electric guitar, and sang in rock bands in both High School and at University. I surf regularly and try to make it to the beach once a week. I believe that having hobbies outside of school can strengthen academic performance and provide a healthy balance in one’s life.

What is your teaching philosophy?
My philosophy is that everyone learns differently. I tailor my lessons to the student based on the specific aspects of the subject he or she is having trouble with. I also believe in developing materials and practice problems specifically designed to strengthen a student's ability in a specific area, rather than only rely on materials online. I believe every student has the ability to excel in whatever they set their mind to; they just need to find the style of learning that works for them.
