Scientist with 10 years of tutoring high school sciences in the Bay Area

Methodology

My teaching method is based on Design Thinking. Each session is based on the needs of the student with additional study material and quizzes. My lessons are aimed at high school students who have a hard time with memorization/conceptual thinking.

Background

I was a plant biologist for 8 years and have been tutoring for the past 10 years. I have tutored and taught hundreds of students who achieved at least one grade higher than their average and who also achieved better study habits and life skills.
