Maiya is currently a college student at Wellesley College. She is studying Economics and Cognitive Science (focus on AI). She loves math of all levels and has been tutoring primarily in math for the past seven years. She tutors math subjects up to Calculus, as well as ACT/SAT math, as well as Spanish (levels 1-3), Computer Science, Economics, English, grammar, writing, History, test prep, and ACT/SAT. She loves to help students who are struggling and need a few different explanations of a topic before it clicks, as well as students who need more advanced topics than school can provide. Outside of tutoring and school, Maiya loves to ballroom dance, travel, and hike with her dogs. She is looking forward to helping you accomplish your academic goals!

Henry H.
Henry holds a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science from UCLA. He once worked as a peer tutor at Oakland Technical High School, mentoring students in all 4 core subjects of English, math (Algebra, Trigonometry, Calculus, etc.), science, and history while tackling on a wide range of honors and AP level courses at the same time. He is well versed in the concepts frequently encountered in biology and chemistry. He also has some of the interpretative and problem solving capability to help students tackle on Newtonian physics. Henry has had the opportunity to take the following AP courses and achieved at least a passing score on their respective exams: Biology, U.S. History, Calculus AB and BC, U.S. Government and Politics, English Literature and Composition, Physics C: Mechanics, Chemistry, and Statistics. Henry is enthusiastic about bringing his expertise to the table and is looking forward to tutoring young students once again in the previously mentioned core subjects as well as Spanish this time around. He makes for intuitive ways to grasp, understand, and retain knowledge of course concepts and will ensure that the student will be able to apply said concepts with confidence. During his free time, Henry partakes in photography, taking portrait, candid, and cityscape photos during occasional outings inside and outside of the Bay Area. He also partakes in various forms of tabletop games as a fun and immersive way to apply problem solving skills and to keep his mind at work.

Andrew recently graduated from UCLA with a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering. As a result, he has strong fundamentals in math and physics as well as computer science. Though born in Taiwan, he moved to California when he was six years old, so he is fluent in both Mandarin Chinese and English. He has experience in private tutoring for algebra and precalculus, and is eager to keep applying and passing on his learning. When it comes to engaging students, Andrew believes that communication is key; it is especially important for both teacher and student to be on the same page. When he has the time, he enjoys camping, reading mystery novels, playing cello, and watching Netflix.
