I am a computer science student at the University of California Irvine. I am working on my bachelor degree towards Information. I started tutoring from 2014. First I had a couple of private students and then I worked for Elevate Learning and right after that Oxford Tutoring center. I have an experience with students from elementary school up to high school. In between all subject I really like teaching Algebra because I think this subject is the fundamental subject for all other high-level math courses and also it is very capable in human life. I believe the tutoring sessions should be full of positive energy to get the student motivated in the material.
