**Nam Nguyen**

honamnguyen@berkeley.edu

Throughout my degrees, I've been tutoring introductory physics for college students from a wide range of majors. As a GSI for 8A/B, I also work closely with students on a weekly basis which allows me to identify common questions and helpful tips for learning the subject. So don't hesitate to contact me, I'm happy to help students at any level!

**Kevin Wang (no longer accepting students for the fall 2021 semester)**

kwang98@berkeley.edu

Physics PhD Student, UCB / MSc in Mathematical and Theoretical Physics, Oxford / BS in Physics, Stanford

I offer tutoring for mathematics, physics, and computer science at the undergraduate level and below. At Stanford, I participated in private tutoring for fellow undergraduates in math and physics. I have also tutored STEM courses for students below the undergraduate level. My background is primarily in math and physics, but I have extensive experience in computer science as well through Stanford coursework and computational physics research. I am currently a graduate student instructor at Berkeley. In my tutoring, I focus on developing students’ problem-solving skills through active learning as opposed to rote memorization.
