I graduated from UC Berkeley in 2007 with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering. I have teaching experience with a variety of subjects and student backgrounds. As a volunteer, I've tutored elementary school students from disadvantaged backgrounds, helping them catch up to grade level in reading. More recently, I tutored Chemistry to adult learners progressing towards nursing certifications. I am a lifelong science and math enthusiast, and they are my favorite subjects to teach. My approach as a tutor is to set clearly defined goals for learning and to accomplish them, while making it as enjoyable an experience as possible. Education done properly shouldn't feel like a chore. It's very important for me to engage the student, try to see things from their perspective, and to adjust my teaching style to fit whatever works for the student.

In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, reading, playing guitar, and studying foreign languages (I can converse in French, Spanish, German, and Vietnamese, though I'm not quite ready to teach them). Above all, I love to learn; I can get myself interested in almost any subject (thanks, Wikipedia!). I truly believe that education is the most important thing in the world, and I'm glad to be able to do my small part in furthering it.
