"I am currently a tutor for the Princeton Review, have taught at UCLA (TA), and have 10+ years of private tutoring experience working with tutoring companies in addition to test prep companies. I specialize in tutoring high school, middle, elementary, and college students to prepare them for matriculation to the best universities/colleges/graduate programs and private middle/high schools possible. At the time of this writing I have worked with students at WyzAnt alone for over 1200+ hours. I also currently have over 820+ hours of tutoring working at the Princeton Review and over 5500+ hours working for my own private tutoring business. I specialize in tutoring math, science (chemistry, biology, physics, anatomy/physiology), English/reading/writing, and SAT/ACT/AP exam preparation. I have had great success tutoring elementary, middle-, and high-school students in multiple subjects (reading, social studies, etc.) for overall grade and study skills improvement + academic achievement. I have tutored many college students & adults. Last but not least, I also offer private tutoring for the health profession (MCAT, DAT, & OAT) exams & many other exams including, but not limited to, the ISEE/SSAT, TOEFL, GED and the CLEP exams. **NOTE: limited spots/times available! I currently only accept students on an application basis depending on availability and other factors. I may not be able to accept you/your student at a given time. **online tutoring session slots also limited** - Other services I offer: Piano lessons (11+ years experience) and Computer/technology instruction & assistance (8+ years experience). References are available upon request. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ My Personal Message to You ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ One of the wisest teachers once said that poor grades, study habits, and test scores are not life-threatening, but they are college-, job- , career-, and quality-of-life threatening. The most competitive students take a pro-active approaching to academics and tutoring while the least competitive take a reactive approach. All you need to do is watching the documentary 'Two Million Minutes' by Bob Compton to realize why students in other countries such as India and China surpass American peers in almost every subject, especially language (writing, grammar, etc.), math, science, and engineering-related subjects. They attend extra classes and tutoring from 6-7 AM in the morning to almost midnight. In today's fast-paced and competitive job market, there is simply too much to lose by not investing now in your child's or your education. If a student is struggling, it makes sense to get him/her the help needed so that the time spent in school is worthwhile. Great grades and test scores can open doors that may have been previously closed and are also significant factors when determining scholarships, so investing time and effort now can pay off substantially in the future. Finally, let's not forget the most important part in all of this: the student. The confidence, knowledge, and skills that a student gains through effective tutoring can last a lifetime. Please do not hesitate to get in touch. Every day spent waiting is another class or lecture's worth of material that you might potentially fall behind or another low quiz/test/exam score that will only make it harder to recover from. I have had too many students who could have received the grade(s) they wanted had they contacted me from the beginning. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Additional Info ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I have lived and been educated in the following cities: Cupertino, CA; Fremont, CA; Seattle, WA; Los Angeles, CA.

Education and Qualifications

school: UCLA
certified: Albert Ko is a certified tutor

I graduated with a degree from UCLA with high honors (Dean's Honors List, Magna Cum Laude) in Integrative Biology & Physiology. I also took many classes at UCLA in education, linguistics, history, and English. I had a cumulative GPA of 3.838 with 265.5 completed units at graduation and was a 10-time Dean's Honors List Recipient. I also was a member of the UCLA Regents Scholar Society, the Alpha Lambda Delta and Phi Eta Sigma National Honor Societies, the Alpha Epsilon Delta Pre-Health Honor Society, and Christian Students at UCLA. I worked as a TA for several undergraduate classes at UCLA, including Education 92F and Life Sciences 2-3. I am currently taking graduate- level classes at Stanford University; my career lies in both teaching (including tutoring) and medicine (oncology/anesthesiology). I have scored at the 98th percentile on the SAT I/II tests and received the highest score of 5 on multiple AP exams (see below for more details) as a high school student, achieving the AP Scholar with Distinction award by the end of my junior year. I have been the recipient of many university merit-based invitational and scholarship honors and awards. Some of the most notable scholarships I have been awarded are the Regents Scholarship from both UCLA and UCSB. Both provided me with a large monetary award, priority enrollment, 4 years of room and board, and many other privileges, honors, and incentives. The SAT examinations that I have scored at 98th percentile or higher are as follows: SAT I; SAT II - Math 2; and SAT II - Biology (M). I also took many AP exams during high school, achieving the AP Scholar with Distinction award by the end of my junior year. Some of the exams that I have taken include: AP Physics B (Score = 5); AP Chemistry (Score = 5); AP Biology (Score = 5); AP Calculus AB (Score = 5); AP Statistics (Score = 5); AP US Government & Politics (Score = 5). I continuously study and retake the SAT, ACT, and AP Exams to stay on par with both the big and small changes each year to the exams.
