I gave William 5 stars because he's the best. He is good at what he does. When ever I was getting into a panic state, William will keep calm and cool as a cucumber.
He takes his time to explain concepts when you don't understand. he will keep working with you until you meet your objectives. I'm happy with my sections with him right now, and will keep working with him. He's one of the most pleasant person I have ever met. Thanks William.

My main goal is to identify knowledge gaps and fill them in. By having you work on problems I can begin to see the trouble spots and correct them. Once you can do the problem on your own I will have you practice it so that it becomes routine. I can also start lessons from scratch, for instance, if you missed some school or didn't understand any of it.

About Moses
I have been teaching Math and Science since 2015 and am currently available to teach at your home or location of your choice. I have helped students increase their grade from a D to a B, become honor roll students and to actually enjoy Math/Homework time.

I have a BA in Biology from City University of New York and was a biomedical researcher for 2 years after graduating. The best part of tutoring for me is that moment when a student's eyes light up with understanding or when they exclaim "Wow! That was fun". My teaching style is tailored to each student depending on their needs.

Currently teaching and tutored many students in Chemistry from High School to College level. I have brought many failing or just passing students to B+'s and A's. I myself took advanced Chemistry at UPenn, and also took AP Chemistry. In addition to reinforcing the fundamentals, and dissecting advanced material so it is more easily understood, my plan to initially is to examine my student's thought process, and then deconstruct their approach so it becomes more systematic and methodical.

About Craig
Welcome students and parents: You may not know it yet, but stumbling upon my page may change your life for the better. With me, your immersion into the world of science and education may open up opportunities that may alter your children's future path.

I have tutored students at the junior/high school, and college levels. As a teaching assistance for undergraduates at the Ivy league, the Univ of Pennsylvania, I teach pupils to dissect problems and challenges into manageable components. This was my stepping stone into a professorial role. I am originally from NYC, and attended Stuyvesant, so I also help tutor students with the SSAT and SHSAT. Knowledge and understanding alone does not make a good educator, it is the ability to transmit such skills which is remarkable.

I have a Master's of Science of Biochemical Engineering from the
University of Pennsylvania, and a Bachelor's of Science in biomedical sciences from King's College, University of London.

I am a third year bioengineering major at UCLA with a 3.7 GPA.
Since I was in high school I was always involved with tutoring underclassmen. I tutored at Pierce College part-time for a year, and since then I started tutoring privately up until now (totaling to 2.5 years). As for chemistry I have completed organic chemistry and biochemistry with lab experiences.
I love teaching and sharing my methods of understanding. I believe students often overthink what they are learning, preventing them from obtaining the knowledge. Learning would be easier if students find those contents more relatable, which is what I aim to do. I am passionate in building strong foundations for my students in chemistry. I have tutored a wide range of subjects: from elementary chemistry to organic chemistry. I am also more than happy to give any advise regarding college application.☺

Eric tutored me throughout the 2016-2017 school year in AP Chemistry. Throughout the year I played competitive volleyball and Eric was always very flexible with scheduling and making sure he could fit me in- even if it was last minute.

I could tell that Eric generally cared about how well I understood each piece of material. No matter how long it took for me to understand he never gave up on me; if one explanation didn't make sense to me, then he would reinterpret it another way. Even during times throughout the school year when I was just so over chemistry, he pushed me and he kept me on track.

The impact that Eric had on me was incredible and I highly recommend his services. Without Eric's help, I know that I would not have been able to receive an A in this class or be able to manage all of my activities.

I learned more about the subject of chemistry then I ever wanted too.... AND I ended up passing the AP exam! Thank YOU Eric!

I love Chemistry a lot! Chemistry has always been my forte. I understand all the concepts of inorganic and organic chemistry very well. I have helped my classmates and juniors with chemistry when I was in high school. Currently, I am working as an online tutor at Chegg Inc. At first, I absorb the question and ask the student for his/her thoughts about the questions and I also first want to know their approach towards the questions. Then, I make them understand why their approach is right or wrong. After explaining to them I usually ask small questions regarding the topic on which I have explained the student. I always want to make sure that the student understands the topic clearly. I also tend to bring in a lot of real life and personalized examples to make the lesson interesting. I love students asking me creative and thoughtful questions to understand a topic better.

About Sifat Bin
I have been a Teacher's assistant throughout my high school. For the first two years, I have assisted my math and chemistry teachers to help my fellow class mates understand various problems and concepts. For the last two years, I have been helping my Math, Chemistry and Biology teacher to not only help my classmates understand problems but also to help my juniors understand key concepts. I have also tutored my juniors in Math, Chemistry, Biology and Computer Science. I have always tutored my younger sister who is in class 5. I have also tutored two of my cousins who are in class 7 and 11 respectively.

I came from Bangladesh in April,2016. I was enrolled in a school and about to give my Cambridge International Exams from there but then I had to move to USA for certain family emergencies. Later, I had completed my examinations from Nicevi
lle High school. I love sports. I was the School cricket team captain and led my team to various tournament triumphs. I also used to play soccer. But I had a fracture in my finger while playing a match. I scored 6 goals in that match and later discovered that I had fractured my finger. I have also been in the top ranked table tennis players in my school. The only two matches that the school champion had lost that year were against me. I am very fond of travelling. In a short span of 6 months I have already visited 9 states. I like to make friends and help people whenever I get any opportunity. I am very calm and collective. I always try to help others understand various problems from different perspectives using numerous examples. I believe in having a friendly relationship between teachers and students.

I graduated from Caltech with a BS in Chemical Engineering, and also worked in a protein chemistry lab for 3.5 years which culminated in a publication in Nature Chemistry. Additionally, my last job in industry required that I evaluate the chemical risk exposures of the Fortune 1000 companies. Through the combination of these experiences, I can teach you about the practical applications of chemistry, which makes chemistry a lot more interesting!

About Natasha
Hello, I'm Natasha and I grew up loving math and science. These subjects always felt very logical and natural to me, and I hope to share my love and intuition for them with every student I teach. My passion for math and science brought me to Caltech, where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering with a focus in Applied Math.

I've previously tutored elementary and middle school children where I provided one-on-one assistance with homework help and exam prep in Math. I love that tutoring is not a one-size-fits-all approach and that each student can view a particular problem very differently than his or her peers. I do my best to tweak my pace and teaching style to fit each student's needs more closely, so that they can get the most out of each session.

I extensively programmed in R for 4 years in industry, and made s
ome very interesting data visualizations to represent statistical analyses of open-source data. Statistics feels a lot more approachable when there are visualizations to illustrate the concepts.

I graduated with a Chemical Engineering degree from Caltech, and worked in a protein chemistry lab for 3.5 years. I have in-depth knowledge in high-school and college-level organic chemistry, physical chemistry, thermodynamics and spectroscopy.

I grew up in a bilingual environment and so am proficient in both English and Mandarin Chinese. Having also learned French and Thai through my childhood and adolescence, I am no stranger to learning a new language and will be happy to guide a student through learning Chinese for the first time! I enjoy learning about China's rich history of over 5000 years, and believe that the best way to teach the language is to let it come alive with stories that have been handed down over many dynasties and generations.

Talk to you soon! Drop me a message so we can see if I can fit your needs.
