Private tutor in Santa Cruz, CA


UC Berkeley - BA, Marine Science , UC Santa Cruz - MS, Ocean Science


I received my Marine Science degree from the University of California at Berkeley. I am presently studying Ocean Science at the University of California Santa Cruz, tracking trace metal geochemistry off the coast. I also work as a college science TA. Ocean science is a passion for me because it includes so many of the other sciences: Chemistry (my favorite, especially Marine), Biology, Physics, and Earth Science.The subjects I teach in Math include Elementary and Middle School Math, Geometry, , and Precalculus. Science subjects that I tutor in are biology, chemistry, organic chemistry, physical chemistry, physics, environmental science, geology, and other science subjects. I try to help my students to approach problems from various directions, to think about them in different ways, not just learn things by rote. I believe it helps to look subjects from multiple angles. I also like to prepare those students who are interested in college for what they can expect. And I can help improve their scores in such tests as the ACT. I excel at preparing exam strategies, and I can help you be ready and able on exam day.But you won't always find me with my nose in a book. My hobbies include running, riding my bike, and playing music with my friends.
