I am a Physicist, I prefer to work with High School and College students, I have a Masters degree in Physics and a Masters degree in Education, as well as a valid CA Single Subject Credential in Math and Physics. I approach each student individually until I get a feeling where the struggles are so I can better serve him/her.
I have been giving lessons for more than 40 years, in 3 different countries, I lost count of how many students, I prepared students to pass the SAT, the SAT Math, the SAT Physics, as well as High School and College students pass their classes. All of them improved their grades.
