Hello! My name is Samuel Kim and I am a current senior studying Biology at UCLA. I have been tutoring high school level Chemistry and Math for 1 year and have been private tutoring the SAT Math section for 3 years. As someone who struggled with academics growing up, I understand the importance and difficulty of mastering challenging concepts. This is why I emphasize the break down of abstract ideas into simpler ideas that are easier for my students to grasp. My philosophy in teaching is to encourage students to verbally express their learnings so that they themselves can teach those concepts. After all, you’ve only truly mastered a skill when you can teach it to others.
