I have taken over 200 units at UC Berkeley, most of which were intensive math and computer science courses. I am fully qualified to tutor any subject in math. In addition to math, I also enjoy tutoring computer science, chemistry, and Mandarin Chinese.
Currently, I am working full-time at a startup in San Francisco as a Data Engineer, so my availability on the weekdays is limited.
HobbiesI enjoy working out, learning new things, listening to music, reading, and trying new cuisines.

Yuchen is one of the best tutors I've ever had. I was stuggling with calculus, and he was able to work with my schedule and accomodate to my every need. Yuchen sat down with me and explained every concept and made sure I understand how to do each problem so that I was prepared for my test. He is also very professional and prompt to reply to emails and text messages.
