UC Berkeley grad: math, physics, chemistry and test prep tutor

Background I?ve always had a passion for teaching and working with young people, and I want to share my love for math and science with others. I believe that students can learn difficult concepts best in a one on one environment. The student?s aptitude will improve from exposure to my years of experience in both academics and industry. Qualifications I have about five years of cumulative experience tutoring including three years tutoring calculus and physics while I was a student at UC I... [more]

Algebra 1

I tutored 1 year of algebra in high school. I believe that a good understanding of algebra is the foundation needed to explore higher level math concepts. As an engineer I still use algebra in my daily work.

Algebra 2

While in high school I tutored students in Algebra. In addition, I answered some algebra questions in the resources portion of my profile. I also have a semester of experience as a graduate student instructor in Materials Science.


I tutored three years of calculus while in college. I got straight A's in all my math classes in school, and received a 5 on my AP calculus exam. I am a practicing mechanical engineer at a medical device company, and use the concepts I learned from calculus to solve challenging real world problems. I can help you improve your grades and understand how the concepts you are learning in calculus can be applied to actual problems.


As a magna cum laude chemical engineering graduate I am knowledgeable in all aspects of general chemistry at the high school and college level. I enjoy tutoring this subject because chemistry is used all around us in many of the products that we use from batteries to cleaning products. I find that giving students real world examples of the application of the topics they are studying increases not only their tests scores but their interest in learning.

Geometry is an important subject to learn because it teaches the student how to logically solve a problem using a given set of information to prove that other properties are true about a given shape. The analytical skills that are developed in this course are important for any line of work that the student will pursue in the future. My geometry tutoring focuses teaching these analytical skills with an emphasis on how they can be used in a wide range of fields including engineering and computer science.

Microsoft Word


I tutored physics for three years while in college and have tutored multiple students on Wyzant in AP and college physics. In addition I received a score of 5 on my AP physics test while in high school. As a practicing engineer I use multiple concepts I learned in physics to solve challenging real world problems.

Microsoft PowerPoint



I have tutored multiple students in precalculus during the academic year and over the summer in preparation for the upcoming school year. My students benefit from my years of experience with this subject and from my teaching style in which I first teach the material, then we review example problems together, and finally I have the student teach me the material which allows them to master the concepts.

Study Skills


I am an experienced math tutor with three years experience tutoring calculus and one year tutoring algebra. I've received all A's in my math classes in school. I also received a perfect score on the trigonometry proficiency exam on WyzAnt.

SAT Math

I received a near perfect score on both the SAT math and GRE math sections. I also received all A's in my math courses in high school and college.


I took the GRE exam as part of my admission to a Materials Science graduate program at UC Berkeley which at the time as a top three program. I had a near perfect score on the math portion of the test. In addition to teaching the concepts behind the math portion of the GRE I give my students test taking techniques that allow them to maximize their score.


I specialize in all areas of test preparation including the GED,GRE,SAT,ACT, and other college entrance exams.



ACT Math

Elementary Math

I am currently tutoring a sixth grade student in math, physics, and chemistry. This student went from failing these classes to getting A's on tests in about six weeks. Due to this success the family has asked me to tutor their son during the summer months so that he will be better prepared for the next school year.
