About this tutor

I specialize in tutoring services for STEM subjects (Math, Physics, Chemistry, Biology) and Japanese language. Other humanities subjects covered from primary school through high school is also covered including ACT and SAT test prep. I hold a bachelor's degree in Biochemistry and Cell Biology, a master's degree in Biology, and am qualified to teach at the community college level. To date, I have taught all grade levels from elemetary students to college undergraduate students and have helped students reach their goals both in specific tests and general academic improvement.

Currently, I work in the research field for new therapeutics in the pharmaceutical industry and am always happy to answer questions for students interested in science and medical careers. 

I enjoy helping my students better understand topics they are learning and enabling them to reach their educational goals. 

I understand that with the recent coronavirus situation, many students are not getting the necessary assistantce they need and hope to help so that they can make a smooth transition back to school once the situation improves.

    I really enjoyed Yuya's tutoring and he made it really easy and fun to learn Japanese. Thanks to him, I got a really good score on my Japanese SAT subject test and enjoyed my trip to Japan last summer! Great sensei!

    Yuya was a great tutor and helped my child pass his AP Biology Exam! I appreciated his patience and his teaching style was easy to understand and very thorough. He also kept a good pace that helped my child keep up and at times stay ahead of his assignments! I definitely recommend him for other students and parents!


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I usually start by asking the student what areas they have trouble understanding and going over recent assignments together with them to gauge where they are at. I then proceed to either teach or review the necessary subjects and help them with their assignments or create new problems for them to solve. I try to personalize the curriculum to the student to best fit with their study style and work to reinforce the material so they can feel confident that they have a solid grasp of the lesson.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have previously volunteered in the past to teach students from elementrary through high school in all subjects with an emphasis in STEM courses. In addition to course material, I have also covered standardized tests and writing assignments. Most recently, I have worked as a teaching assistant in several courses at UC San Diego including biology and Japanese.
