    About Albert

    Albert graduated from UC Berkeley with a bachelor’s degree in molecular and cell biology. His teaching experience is wide and varied, with a focus on math and science. He has tutored numerous students over the past decade in subjects such as math up to AP Calculus, AP Chemistry, AP Physics, ACT, SAT, and the SAT Subject Tests. When tutoring verbal subjects—such as English and reading—Albert enjoys approaching tutoring via a hybrid of formula and application: equipping students with basic principles and formulas that they can use to interpret text and apply those interpretations to a wide variety of questions.

    Students tend to gravitate toward Albert’s teaching style because he has the ability to simplify difficult concepts. Students who work well with Albert and improve their scores are generally extremely motivated and intellectually curious. Albert understands the nuances of standardized exams and can relay that knowledge to students in order for them to achieve their desired goals.
