Science Tutoring

Miguel Chan helped my high school junior immensely with AP Chemistry. Her in-school teacher was very behind in the curriculum wouldn't come close to completing the topics in time for the AP exam. Through only a few weeks, this tutoring covered all units in depth, provided extra free response practice, and offered testing tips for saving time during the exam and getting the best score possible. Tutoring is specific to the individual and student-driven, and I would highly recommend science students to work with Miguel for bridging the gap between school and high stakes exams.

Miguel is very efficient in delivering knowledge in the subject area he is helping with. He knows all the support tools and is experienced in what he does. This is important when you are needing quick, reliable tutoring help for the first time. My daughter was late one day and he was very understanding. If you are serious about getting help, use Miguel’s services.

Science Tutoring

I hired a few honor chemistry and math tutors before for my daughter and she didn’t notice any difference until she works with Miguel. She said after working with Miguel, she realized maybe the other tutors did not know their subject very well. Miguel makes things easier to understand and is very knowledgeable. Her grades have also improved tremendously within a couple of months with Miguel.

I found my tutoring sessions very helpful. Miguel was able to help me with all the problems and concepts I brought in, as well as answering any questions I had. I feel better prepared for the SAT than I did before.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My in-person rate increases the further I need to travel from Albany CA ($110 to $200 an hour). My rate is $80/hour for online tutoring via zoom, skype, or google hangouts. Discounts available for recurring sessions. If you live or meet me near Albany CA my rate will be $110/hour.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I would like get as much background information about the student/tutee that I will be supporting during our session. Examples of background information include subject (such as calculus, chemistry, physics, ect.), topic (adding fractions, finding the derivative, electronic configurations, ect.), learning differences that the student may have or areas in which the student struggles, student's strengths and weaknesses. If the student can explain this to me even better!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am currently a math and science teacher working at a private school in Albany, CA where I have worked for 8 years and have 15 years of experience tutoring at community colleges, I also supervised math tutors at UC Berkeley Academic Service Centers, briefly worked at Mathnasium of Piedmont, and worked for the nonprofit organization Making Waves Education Program in Richmond, CA. I have tutored and taught students of all age groups but I have worked the most with high school and college students. I have also been tutoring online for 3 years.
