Experienced & Results Oriented Tutor & Berkeley Grad- Chemistry, Biology, SAT/ACT



Hello, I’m an experienced and successful science and math teacher/tutor and former biotech business development manager who’d like to be your tutor. Currently I’m working as a substitute middle and high school science/math teacher for charter schools in the east bay and San Francisco, serving primarily minority and inner city youth. I’m also working with private tutoring agencies where I tutor students to improve their scores on both the SAT and ACT exams and improve their math, chemistry and biology grades. I specialize in tutoring Biology, chemistry and math. My teaching experience also includes over five years as a teacher in the Oakland and Richmond school districts.

My undergraduate education at U.C. Berkeley focused mainly on biology & environmental science, including ecology and ecologically sound pest & pathogen control. My master’s degree from Cal State Hayward (now East Bay) was in molecular and cell biology.

I believe that all students deserve a tutor, who is kind, patient and knowledgeable, who can relate to each students individual needs and challenge and encourage the student to achieve beyond their expectations of themselves. I believe each student should have a customized program based on their individual learning styles and aptitude to enable them to master the required subject material. I’ve had experience working with students with a range of learning disabilities and have devised strategies for teaching them. I strive to make my classes highly interactive and practical, to encourage the interest and participation of as many students as possible in math and the sciences. I’m interested in giving something back to the community to help inspire students to gain successful admission to quality universities and move toward successful careers in their chosen fields.
