About Me

I was born and raised in Los Angeles, but currently I am completing my B.S. in Pharmaceutical Chemistry at University of California, Davis. In short, I am learning firsthand how to discover and create medicines. This upcoming June, I am applying to medical schools to eventually become an Emergency Physician. Aside from my serous goals, I love to laugh, exercise, and hang out with family and friends.

*** Lesson Details ***
Some subjects can feel boring and monotonous, and that is why I make sure my teaching technique allows my students to enjoy the subject matter. I engage in a friendly manner, and subtly explain the information in way that enhances their learning capability. Students should expect a manageable course load that involves concepts of their homework assignments, upcoming quizzes, and final examinations. Additionally, I tend to spontaneously create questions and problems to verify their level of comprehension and critical thinking. Over a period of time, they will incrementally learn how to deal with new ideas. My students will master their work and gain the strength and motivation to tackle their academic challenges. I strive to enlighten people, not merely to repeat dry information. I want my students to grasp the importance of an education, so I create fun and entertaining lessons for them.

Studying can be excruciating for some people-- we have all been there. It's okay to stumble sometimes. Many students have instructors, who may be brilliant in their field but lack the interpersonal capacity to teach well. I empower my students to overcome academic hurdles by teaching them the implicit art of approaching a problem. Whether it involves mathematical equations, English grammar, or life and physical sciences, there always exists an attainable solution. My communication skills enable me to convey information in a smooth and comprehensible manner. I use real-life examples and simple analogies to express connections and key concepts. I gauge my techniques and language to move my students toward thinking independently and critically. Expression of the subject matter is the key to learning effectively.

*** Studio Equipment ***
When I tutor online, I love using dry erase markers and a white board. I find it effective. When I tutor at a student's home, I use pencil and paper. I do use additional tools for the learning process at my discretion, e.g. blocks, figures, or molecular models.

*** Travel Equipment ***

*** Lesson Details ***
Sheer technique is necessary but insufficient to play an instrument well. Aural skills, that include the study of functional tonality and voice-leading are important factors that impart musicality. This is of great import if the prospective musician wants the audience to truly enjoy his or her performance !

Whether it be the 3 Rs or preparation in the performing arts, a remarkable instructor must go well beyond the subject matter at hand and help imbue the student with a spirit of wonder that, in due time, will foster enthusiasm necessary for excellence.

A child emulates and learns to communicate in his or her mother-tongue through a supporting and nurturing environment. Likewise, a student needs to be sufficiently motivated to embrace learning in a familiar supportive manner.

About Me

I take great pride in ensuring my student's are successful not only in the short term, but the long term as well.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have never used a set curriculum. I base my lessons off of the specific needs of each particular student. By speaking, and most importantly listening, to my students, their families, and their teachers, I am able to determine how to best be of service.

I have never been a strict teacher. I work hard to develop a lasting relationship with students; ensuring they feel comfortable enough to be themselves. I strive to create an open, non-judgmental environment in which students can express their concerns and work through academic issues together. I have had tremendous success with this method. After a few months, all of my students have significantly improved not only their grades, but their personal and familial relationships as well. I feel understanding each student's needs and wants is the best way to meet their particular goals.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I travel to my student's home for all lessons. I generally bring both an iPad and laptop as learning tools.

*** Specialties ***
Math (Elementary through Pre-Calculus), English, History, Sciences (Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Anatomy, Astronomy, Plant Biology/Physiology), Language Fluency: Through Level I (Spanish, Quechua, Latin), Paper writing/editing, Research Techniques, Proper Study Habits.

About Me

Hi,

If you are in search of a preeminent tutor then you have reached the right person. I have a teaching experience of more than 5 years in Math to students of various grades (K-12th). I have also tutored students preparing for SAT/ACT, GRE, SSAT etc and have had great results. Many of my students have increased their scores by more than 40% in their exams.

I believe that solving a problem isn't the only goal but understanding the concept behind that is very important. If the basics of any student is well built up then he can grasp anything easily and wouldn't be afraid even if he sees a totally unknown problem in front of him. He will always have the courage to try. So making the student believe that what he is facing isn't a problem but a challenge makes the problem look much easier and changes the entire perspective of that student towards that subject.

I am a young, enthusiastic, friendly person on whom you can completely rely and I can assure you the best result. Hoping to work with you.

*** Lesson Details ***
PRE-CALCULUS
First we will begin with the following topics:
Vector- It‚¬Ä¬ôs not an intrinsic part of pre-calculus but we will just brush up the basics as to what a vector is and how is it denoted and why it is used.
Trigonometry:
The most important part of Math and Pre-calculus. We will first learn the basics of trigonometry as to why this particular topic is called ‚¬Ä¬ėTrigonometry‚¬Ä¬ô. I will teach you the unit circle concept and the relation between degree‚¬Ä¬ôs and radian and how to convert one in to another. Then we will do the various ratios like Sine, Cosine etc. I will teach you how to learn and remember the ratios and the common values of different angels. Then we will practice various problems involving simplification and finding values. We will also practice word problems and the real application of trigonometry.
After all of this we will go into deeper properties of all trigonometric ratios and other theorems. You need to practice this concepts a lot because if your this part is strong then almost one-third of your calculus is done. Mastering all of this shouldn't take more than 10-12 hours.
Once we are done with this we will focus our attention on other topics of pre-calculus.

I serve Boston,Cambridge,Somerville,Allston,Quincy,East & South Boston, Dorchester, Medford, Charlestown Arlington, Watertown,Roxbury Brookline, Belmont, Arlington and any area easily accessible by the T within 45 minutes of travelling from Central Square,Cambridge or Northeastern University.

*** Specialties ***
I am special in giving a crash course. With a limited time and a lot of things to learn my methodology helps the students to grasps the topics easily and swiftly.If you have very less time before the exam and have a lot of portion to cover then I can help you guide and learn the entire course without it being to strenuous. I have taken crash courses in SAT and GRE where I have tutored students for just 15 days in which the entire syllabus was taught along with ample practice which is equivalent to 2 months to time. In this not only the students got great results but also learnt many important concepts which helped them in future.

About Me

My expansive breadth of interests has led me through years of experience in the arts and natural sciences. I'm a voice instructor, math tutor, and biology teacher. Now, I'm pursuing a career in opera and vocal performance.

I have extensively studied vocal performance and opera for many years and continue to add to my own technique. I have been in many operas and musical theater productions. I am currently performing in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolored Dreamcoat at the Booth Tarkington Theatre. I was a finalist in the MasterWorks Festival concerto competition. I have studied other vocal genres, such as jazz and pop. I have administered vocal lessons to every voice type at all different levels. I use the appoggio technique of breathing and believe all singing should be produced in a way that does not damage the vocal folds.

I have a bachelors degree in biology with a minor in art. After graduating college, I was a full-time high school biology teacher, volleyball coach, and director of the school musical. As a high school teacher, I learned first hand the kind of pressure and expectations that are placed on students in order for them to succeed. In college, I was the head student researcher on a two-year lab project. I took several upper level science courses including: biochemistry, calculus, organic chemistry, calculus based physics, cell biology, anatomy, and physiology. I studied marine biology in the Virgin Islands and am CPR certified.

*** Lesson Details ***
Voice lessons with me are fun and effective. You can expect to hear improved technique form day one, eventually reaching your long term goals. I teach an open throat technique called appoggio. It is the technique opera singers use, but can be applied to any music style. This technique allows the singer to sing with their entire voice using a relaxed larynx. I begin every lesson aligning the students voice through various vocal warm ups and exercises. We then work together to pick repertoire that will suit the singer'€™s voice and they will enjoy singing. During a lesson we will also cover performance presentation, acting, diction, rhythm, musicality, style, and interpretation.

During tutoring you can expect a personalized plan based on your goals and aspirations. Since every student is different you can be assured we will come up with a plan that is designed just for you. I am a laid back tutor but will be sure to get the most out of you after our time together. Most students see at least a one letter grade improvement. My main goal for every tutoring session is student learning and comprehension.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, recording equipment, large collection of sheet music, subscription to IPAsource (foreign language translations and pronunciations), several math and science textbooks

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in helping students find their true singing voice.
