After earning a BS and MS in biochemistry from UCLA and working at NIH for two years, I taught high school chemistry, biology, and physics for five years. I love learning -- especially math and science related. As a result of my love of learning, I also love being able to teach others the things that I have learned. I have taught high school biology, chemistry and physical science and have tutored in SAT Math prep there as well. My favorite moments of teaching were marked by students saying "I get it" -- especially after a long struggle to understand but everything finally makes sense and the light bulb just turned on. In helping students grasp very abstract concepts, I attempt to give examples that are more tangible and that the students can relate to (and therefore, also remember).

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I try to make abstract and difficult topics more tangible to students in ways that they can relate to. I have found that this approach is often tied to students' grasp of abstract concepts. Students often find it hard to bridge the gap between the math they've learned in math class and the math they use in science.
