EducationI am a rocket scientist, with a Master degree in Chemical Engineer and a Bachelor degree in Mathematics from University of California Los Angeles. I am passionate, personable, brilliant and have the hands on experience needed to effectively convey difficult subjects. I love teaching Math & Chemistry. I can solve all Math and Chemistry problems! I have a track record of helping students raise their grades, improve their self-confidence, and enjoy subjects they once hated. I am very patient and have lots of experience helping struggling math and chemistry students. My favorite part about tutoring is when I can make a substantial difference to my students, helping them achieve their goals and preparing them for standardized exams. Whatever the course, I always teach my students more than one way to solve the math or chemistry problems! Exploring many methods is the best way to build conceptual understanding of math and chemistry. So, I always push my students to discover many ways to solve the problems by their own! I believe that students need to be able to think critically and creatively when they face a new problem. They need to be challenged with rich problems, while being provided with the tools to tackle those problems with creativity and confidence.
ExperienceI have worked as a Math and Chemistry tutor since High School. During my time at UCLA, I tutored college student in Math ( Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1 & 2, Geometry, Pre-calculus, Calculus I, II & III) and Chemistry (Organic and Inorganic). I helped students improve their grades and study habits. I also worked as a Math teaching assistant in the last 2 years of my college. This was an amazing experience and it taught me that my true love will always be teaching others and helping them achieve their goals, no matter how daunting they may seem. I know how to help students build both their conceptual understanding of mathematics & chemistry and their confidence in problem solving.
After graduated college, I worked as a Chemical Engineer for years before I created Math&Chemistry tutoring business. I have worked with students of many ages with many different aims for over 8 years. The range spans 8 years old is just starting to get their first grasp on math to 30 year old who wants to expand their horizons. I have watched my students improve and grow over these years and I can say that I am very proud of them.
My greatest joy is when my students grasp a concept and start making connections and growing as learners. Different learners learn differently, so I tailor my tutoring to every individual student's learning styles, strengths, and challenges. I make learning fun for my students, injecting humor, focusing on their interests, and helping them experience the joy of success!
As a professional Math & Chemistry tutor, I understand that having the proper guidance and support is equally important to having the right knowledge in order to succeed.
Please give me a call at (310) 728-5406 to schedule your first chemistry & math session today.
I will be your biggest supporter. I will prove to you that you can learn anything, as long as the material is presented in the right ways and you are willing to put in the work. I am extremely patient and will never make you feel down or embarrassed about your current level of knowledge, it is all about where we will end up when we are done.
I am looking forward to work with you soon.

I can't say enough about how much Amy helped me with my pre-calculus and chemistry. I was concerned about Amy's rates at first but one I observed her, I knew that I got a good deal! Amy was very prompt and prepared every time our math and chemistry session started. She always dressed professionally. Amy was intuitive to my need and found the best way to work with me. There was never any problem to cancel if something came up at school or if Amy had something unexpected come up, Amy always called to say she had someone who would fill in for her or we could reschedule. If you are looking for a quality math tutor who really care about helping the students, the you need to look no further.
Amy is one of the best tutors I have ever had so far.... She was really nice on our first session together and was real patient when I asked her a thousand questions about chemistry. The mole, thermodynamics, balancing equations, and more! She helped me to prepare for my test which was the following day, and even taught me how to be more organized so I wouldn't forget important test dates like these. Plus Ms Tran also answered my request on university tutor in under an hour. Now thats what I call good service! 5/5
My son was struggling with his high school math. He had an D in Algebra 2. He hasn't gotten help much from his math teacher. He was angry and giving up. He had a math test this Thursday. I worried so much about my son. I found Amy from university tutor.com Luckily, Amy could be able to help my son next evening. Now my son understood the concepts and got ready for his test after 2 hours tutoring session with Amy. My son told me that Amy was extremely intelligent teacher. She came with her own teaching materials, practice problems and worksheets all geared in areas that my son was having a hard time with. I would highly recommend Amy with my family and friends.
Amy ia an excellent teacher. She is very knowledgeable and has a wonderful teaching skills. She helped me to review the chemistry worksheet for 2 hours 30 minutes before my test even I called her at last minutes. Amy is very friendly and easy to get along with. I definitely want to use Amy tutoring service again next week.
I would like to share how happy I was with Sandra's success. My daughter was really struggling with her chemistry class. She is an D student. I worried that my daughter would not pass her chemistry class at the end of the semester. I feel very lucky to find Amy from Universitytutor.com. After 3 hours tutor session with Amy, my daughter did good with her test. She gets B today. We are very happy with the result. Thanks Amy for doing an awesome job with Sandra. Sandra is going to have the chemistry tutor session with Amy twice per week until the school year is ended. We probably need Amy's help with Sandra this summer as well. Sandra didn't do a good job with her chemistry class last semester. She probably has to take the summer school.
