PAULA WONG

I started tutoring when I was a sophomore in high school. I fell in love with the job's challenges and rewards and in 2005, inGenius! was born. Tutoring is my full time passion, and I have worked with more than 40 kids in the past three years in all levels of math and Spanish. Most of my students come from College Park, where I went to high school, so I am very familiar with the teachers, routines, and the material that is taught. My job is more than imparting knowledge; I also instill confidence and act as a mentor who has 'been there and done that' on the college track.

AUSTIN FLORES

I first started tutoring during high school, when a few of my friends were having trouble with the chemistry course we were taking. Later, as a senior, I became a TA for sophomore level chemistry, setting up labs and grading papers. My love for math and chemistry continued during college, and I was happy that my major in chemistry allowed me to study both. While progressing farther at Davis, I helped underclassmen through the prerequisites that we shared. Now, as a Pre-Med student, I'd like to put the knowledge I've gained to good use by helping other students. I believe that guidance and support is the key to making learning a fun and rewarding experience. My goal is to help each individual to succeed at what they do with their own unique style, balancing school with their other interests. When I'm not tutoring or studying, I like to spend my time volunteering at UCSF Medical Center, practicing my trumpet and reading as many books as I can on my Kindle.

JYLLIAN SMITH

I began helping out friends complete class work, homework and study in high school, and quickly learned that teaching was something I enjoy. Starting my freshman year I was selected to be in the math and science academy within my school. Biology has always been a favorite subject of mine and became my focus in college. Math was always a difficult subject for me, so I can empathize with students and share ways to help them overcome classes that may be overwhelming. Education has always been a passion of mine and I am happy that I can share my knowledge of math and science topics as well as just help students with organization and study techniques.

DAVID MURPHY

I started tutoring math during my junior year of high school, but my passion for teaching came much earlier. I was lucky enough to be inspired by a handful of passionate teachers that taught me as much about leading a positive, impactful life as they did English, History, and Math. I plan to formally pass on their teachings after I get my teaching credentials in the next couple of years. Growing up, my strength was Math and my Achilles' heel was Language Arts, but I enjoyed the challenge of succeeding at something that didn't come readily. Since then, I've reversed the two and am now finishing up a BA degree in English with a long term goal of obtaining a Master's degree in English or Linguistics. I'd like to help my students do the same, training their weaknesses into their greatest strengths through proper study techniques and guidance.

ANTHONY K. ADAMS

I started tutoring in graduate school to supplement my teaching assistantship. I was surprised to find that I enjoyed teaching and tutoring at least as much as my research. Teaching has been a part of my career ever since and has always been one of the more rewarding parts. After almost 30 years in industry as a Research Scientist and Manufacturing Engineer I am now transitioning into education. In addition to the training I have conducted in industry, I have tutored in chemistry at both college and high school levels. While I always loved Chemistry it did not necessarily come easily to me and I remember what it was like to struggle with new and challenging concepts. I look forward to helping my future students work through their own challenges and achieve their goals.
