Recent chemistry graduate offering chemistry, math, and physics lessons in Milpitas for all ages

Methodology

My teaching approach is that I like to use analogies or similar problems to solve the main issue at hand. I think having many examples are key to understand problem structures. If something is not understood, I will rewind and re-teach the concepts. To me, everything has an answer!

Background

I am a scientist at a biotech company in the Bay Area. I graduated with a BS in Chemistry December 2017. I have never had a tutoring job, but I have helped fellow classmates learn the subjects I know! I employ chemistry and math knowledge on a day-to-day basis in my current job.
