Marco

Bachelor of Science

Chemistry | Mathematics

¡Hola, my name is Marco! I graduated from UCLA with a bachelor's degree in Chemistry. Although my major is chemistry, I actually find myself spending most of the time studying math rather than chemistry! During high school, I loved both math and physics, so I chose chemistry, which to me seemed like the middle ground between them. Outside of teaching, I like to take pictures of nature, play badminton, and watch Netflix. As an educator, I believe it is important to learn something new everyday. Recently, I have been learning Spanish. ¡El conocimiento es poder!

Younes

Bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering

Mathematics | Chemistry

Hey there! My name is Younes! I graduated from a school overseas with a bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering and Architecture, but that has nothing to do with my love for science like Chemistry and Biology. I decided to move to the USA 4 years ago to follow my dreams and my passion for something related to the medical field. Therefore, I started a major in Biomedical Engineering; which is a new field of engineering. I have been teaching and tutoring chemistry and math subjects online and in person since I moved to the USA. I love anything related to science and math because I feel like everything around us is based on those two fields. Outside of  teaching, I like to read science, motivation and personnel development books, meditate, watch Netflix and cooking which is my top one favorite hobby!
