When I was in school, Math was my best subject that I understood. Today, I would like to use my knowledge of Math to help those students who are struggling with their math homework or need help for an upcoming test. Not every school subject comes easy to students, so when I can teach a student understand how to go about the math problems they need help on, I enjoy that the most.

I prepare for my sessions. Reviewing the students material before hand, and creating supplementary material if need be.
I love that moment when you see a concept click for the first time in a students mind.

I am interested in and take joy in attending to the wants and needs of my students. I carefully spend my time crafting exercises and looking through various curricula and books to aid students in becoming the best version of themselves in their math and/or physics classes. Having tutored students in these subjects for the past 5 years and a double bachelor's degree in Physics and Astrophysics from UC Berkeley with a >3.5 GPA in both majors, I consider myself a highly qualified tutor. I hope that we can make an arrangement and I can best serve you!...
