Experienced Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry Tutor

I am an engineering consultant and a part-time math and science tutor. I used to work in the aerospace industry as a scientist and a systems engineering manager. I am now doing what I like the most which are consulting and teaching in my free time. Even though I am relatively new on WyzAnt, I have been tutoring Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry on a part time basis since my college days. I have also taught summer classes at my family business since 2005. My teaching sessions typically incl... [more]


Algebra 1

Mathematics is one of my favorite subjects in college, and I have taken math classes that are typically required for advanced degree math students as electives in my graduate studies. These math skills have benefited me significantly in my engineering career. For Algebra I, students typically learn the appropriate basic concepts, theories, applications, efficient study techniques and how to solve problems involving: Linear Equations and Systems of Linear Equations Linear Relations and Functions Linear Inequalities and Systems of Linear Inequalities Quadratic, Polynomial and Exponential Functions Radical Expressions and Equations Rational Expressions and Equations Basic Concepts in Statistics and Probability Study guides and extra materials for test preparations will be available upon request.


Algebra 2

I have taught and tutored Algebra II since my college days. For new concepts that are difficult to understand, I have used real-life examples and visual illustrations to successfully complement formulas and formal textbook descriptions. I have also taught my students some personal study skills that make algebra II fun and easy for students. For Algebra II, students typically learn the appropriate basic concepts & theories, relevant applications, efficient study techniques and how to solve problems involving: Equations and Inequalities Linear Relations and Functions Systems of Equations and Inequalities Matrices Quadratic, Polynomial and Radical Functions and Inequalities Rational Expressions and Equations Exponential and Logarithmic Functions Conics Sections - Parabolas, Ellipses, Hyperbolas Sequences and Series Basic Concepts in Statistics and Probability (Optional Topics) Trigonometric Functions, Graphs, and Identities Study guides and extra materials for test preparations will be available upon request.


Calculus

I have taught and tutored Calculus since my college days. For new concepts that are difficult to understand, I have used real-life examples and visual illustrations to successfully complement formulas and formal textbook descriptions. I have also taught my students some personal study skills that make Calculus a fun and less demanding subject. Topics that are typically covered in a Single-Variable Calculus (AP Calculus AB, BC) include: Functions, Graphs, Limits, and Continuity. Derivatives: Concept, Applications, and Computation. Integrals: Definite, Indefinite, Applications, Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, Techniques of Integration. (BC Only) Sequences and Series: Concepts, Tests for Convergence, Taylor Series, Radius and Interval of Convergence. Topics that are typically covered in a Multi-Variable Calculus include: Vectors and Vector Functions. Partial Derivatives. Multiple Integrals over different Coordinate Systems. Vector Calculus Study guides and extra materials for test preparations will be available upon request.


Chemistry

Chemistry is one of my favorite subjects in college as it explains naturally occuring reactions and the impacts of chemical reactions in cell biology. In addition to the required chemistry classes for my Physics and Engineering degree, I have taken classes that are typically required for chemistry students as electives. I have taught and tutored Chemistry since 2005. For new concepts that are difficult to understand, I use analogy, graphs and diagrams to successfully complement formulas and formal textbook descriptions. I have also taught my students some personal study skills that make Chemistry fun and easy for students.


Geometry

Geometry is one of my regular tutoring subjects. I am also familiar with California Geometry curriculum and topics.


Physics

Physics is one of my undergraduate degree along with my electrical engineering degree. From my own experience of learning Physics and years of teaching and tutoring Physics, I have found visual illustrations, beyond standard text books or lectures, can really help Physics students quickly understand Physics concepts, formulas and solve Physics problems.


Prealgebra

For prealgebra, students typically learn the appropriate basic concepts, theories, applications, efficient study techniques and how to solve problems involving: Integers, Rational Numbers and Real Numbers. Proportions, Similarity, and Percents. Geometry and Spatial Reasoning. Area and Volume. Linear Equations and Inequalities. Nonlinear Functions and Polynomials. Basic Statistical and Probabilistic Concepts. Study guides and extra materials for test preparations will be available upon request.


Precalculus

In a Precalculus course, students typically learn the appropriate basic concepts & theories, relevant applications, efficient study techniques and how to solve problems involving: Linear Relations and Functions Systems of Equations and Inequalities, Linear Programming, and Matrices Graphs of Functions Polynomial and Rational Functions Trigonometric Functions, Graphs and Identities Vector and Parametric Equations Polar Coordinates and Complex Numbers Exponential and Logarithmic Functions Conics Sections - Parabolas, Ellipses, Hyperbolas Sequences and Series Statistics and Data Analysis For test preparations, study guides and extra materials will be available upon request.


Trigonometry

In a Trigonometric course which is covered in a semester, students typically learn the appropriate basic concepts & theories, relevant applications, efficient study techniques and how to solve problems involving: Right-Triangle-Based Definition of Trigonometric Functions Radian Measure, The Unit Circle, and Circular Functions Graphs of 6 Circular Functions Trigonometric Identities Inverse Circular Functions and Trigonometric Equations Applications of Trigonometry and Vectors Complex Numbers, Polar Equations, and Parametric Equations (Optional) Exponential and Logarithmic Functions Study guides and extra materials for test preparations will be available upon request.


SAT Math

I have taught SAT Math courses in the Summer over the years. My emphasis is on improving student's logical and mathematical reasoning skills.


Probability

In addition to private tutoring AP Statistics students over the years, I have also taught college-level courses in Probability and Statistics at Boeing and Northrop.


Differential Equations

Mathematics is one of my favorite subjects in college, and I have taken math classes that are typically required for math students as electives in my studies. These math skills have benefited me significantly in my engineering career. I have taught and tutored college-level math subjects, Differential Equations included, since my college days. For difficult math concepts, I use analogy, graphs and diagrams to complement formulas and formal textbook descriptions. I have also taught students study skills that I personally use that make Differential Equations a fun and less demanding subject . In addition to helping students with their homework, I also go over the theories with relevant applications and provide students with extra practice test materials as needed.


Electrical Engineering

As a scientist in the aerospace industries, I have taught college-level courses in Electrical Engineering topics at Boeing and Northrop. EE topics that I have taught include Circuit Analysis, Signal and Systems, and Communication Systems Modeling and Design.
