Tutoring

Becoming a tutor was the best part of my college experience.

Okay, maybe thats a stretch, but since I became a tutor my life has forever changed. I have been a private tutor for six years, and I cannot imagine my life without it. Although tutoring is not my only job, it is a huge passion, and an integral part of who I am.

My style of teaching is positive, interactive, and consistently tying into my background in Earth Science and oceanography. (If you would like to learn about my scientific work, click here!)

Whether your student needs inspiration, assistance with basic concepts, guidance to get into a top university, or someone to do day to day homework with, I would love to help!

Qualifications:

I have been a math and science tutor for over 6 years, tutoring from ages 5 to 50 and all levels of math and science (including college courses) My client base has encompassed over 60 families and I recently reached over 5,000 hours of one on one tutoring. Aside from my tutoring job, I double majored in Physical Geography and Earth Science at UC Santa Barbara. After Santa Barbara, I was a visiting scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research. Currently, I am a PhD candidate at UCLA, studying biogeochemical cycling in oceans, as well as a mentor to high school age students looking to improve upon public speaking and leadership development in STEM fields.

My range of professional and academic experiences all play a role into my tutoring style. I draw upon real life applications and earth science principles to take learning beyond merely finishing homework.
