Qualifications & Experience

I have a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. During college, I worked as a tutor and workshop facilitator at both Rio Hondo College and Cal Poly Pomona, reaching hundreds of students, and helping them reach their academic and career goals.

I'm experienced with many STEM subjects, and I'm available for tutoring in prealgebra, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, precalculus, calculus, physics, and computer science.

I'm mostly interested in tutoring math or computer science. Particularly web development, game development, or preparing for technical interviews.

I've helped students complete their homework, prepare for tests and final exams with practice tests and one-on-one, or group tutoring. And have always received positive feedback from my students.

Students that participated in my academic excellence workshops in college received, on average, 0.5 to 1 whole letter grade higher than non-workshop participants, taking the same class section.

He is awesome! So helpful. He even scheduled an extra time to meet with our son outside of regular tutoring for no fee to make sure my son, his student understood the key learning points.
