Female PhD Electrical Engineer offering math and physics lessons in Bay Area, California, 25+ years industry experience 5+ years tutoring experience

Methodology

I believe that the best way to master any level of is to practice practice practice. While I do help the students with their homework and will lecture, if necessary, on understanding the material, I feel that the most is gained by giving them practice problems, both from the book and ones I write and have them solve those problems with my supervision. This way they can improve their understanding and I can get a better idea of how well they have grasped the subject and what they need extra practice on.

Background

I began taking Calculus from UCSB when I was 15 years old, eventually receiving a PhD in electrical engineering from UC Berkeley. I have 25+ years industry experience and have also been tutoring for 5+ years. I have successfully trained students (including my own two sons) to pass math placement exams, the AP Calculus exam and raise their course grades, improve their understanding and confidence. I have tutored all levels of math: elementary school, geometry, algebra, trigonometry, precalculus, calculus (AB, BC, college level), multi-variable calculus and differential equations.
