I graduated from University of California, Davis with Bachelor of Science in chemical engineering. I have tutored peers and underclassmen throughout my college years in a mentorship program.
I am most passionate of science and math subjects. Science subjects are amazing because it really helps you to understand how the world around you work better. There are so many applications that will be useful to you for the rest of your life once you learn science subjects. I believe that the reason why we gain knowledge is to spread it to other people. I wish to help out students who are struggling with the process of gaining knowledge so that learning becomes enjoyable for the students.
I can tutor most mathematical classes from all k-12 level and up to calculus 2. I have done well in SATI SATII, and AP Calculus AB tests, and I can help you do well in these subjects. I can also tutor chemistry (honor and AP) and physics (honor and AP). There are man other subjects I can teach that are shown in my profile.
When I have free time, I like to read, cook, listen to either classical or EDM, ride longboard around the neighborhood, and watch a lot of random videos on YouTube.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
Help students to build foundation of knowledge so that they can progress with more advanced concepts without difficulties. Also, I like illustrating to students how concepts that they learn tie into real-life applications so that they stay interested and motivated.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I would like to make sure that the students and I become comfortable with each other so that we can interact in a friendly environment. Also, I will make sure to learn about the goals of the students so I can help them to get there.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
By making learning more enjoyable. Connect lessons to real life situations.
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
Be patient and try to approach the concept from different perspectives that may be easier for the students to understand.
What strategies have you found to be most successful when you start to work with a student?
I think the most important thing to know when starting to work with a student is where they are academically. Once you learn this, you can then set the level and pace of your lessons so that students can learn efficiently.
What techniques would you use to be sure that a student understands the material?
I'll test the student with problems and basic concepts to see if they understand the foundation of the material. If they don't, I'll go over the concepts again and maybe use visuals and fun facts to reinforce the lesson. If they do understand the basic concepts, I'll make sure that they can apply those concepts to more complex problems.
What types of materials do you typically use during a tutoring session?
For math classes, I use graphical representations such as graphs, unit circle, and charts with laws. For science classes, I use diagrams and tables. Any visuals that can be tied to the lessons can be beneficial for students to memorize and understand concepts of the lessons.
