"My teaching style is to break down complex tasks into smaller pieces so that the final concept can be understood at every stage. I believe that the best way to learn a new type of problem is to relate it to something you already know how to do. Every question is a question worth asking, and I will always take the time to adapt to your learning style and present material in the way that is easiest for you to understand.."

"Born in Okinawa but raised in Southern California, I’ve always been flexible in mindset. I can only teach inside the circle my life has drawn for me. Since the circle has been made of flexibility, I teach in the style that seems to fit the situation. I like to draw, I like figuring out puzzles, I like to flip problems upside down (usually not literally) to solve them and explain to others how to reached the end. I am a recent UCSD graduate with a passion for learning and a drive to help others."

"I loved learning math in high school and college, and later applying math to physics problems for engineering. I also excelled in Literature and Writing in high school, and have taken college courses pursuing an interest in Psychology(my parents are Psychiatrists!) and Anatomy and Physiology. I see mathematics and physics problems as a game, with rules and tools to make use of. I see some of the same principles in my extracurricular interests -- chess and tennis."
