It may seem strange to begin with a statistic, but I trust you will agree it's not wholly inappropriate. During the 2009-2010 school year, my 11 AP Chemistry students had a 100% pass rate with the following score distribution: Seven of them scored a 5, three scored a 4, and one scored a 3. The high scores are greater than three times the national average. What makes this even more impressive is that I only saw my students an average of 2.5 times per week (2 days one week, 3 days the next, alt... [more]

I have either taught or tutored Algebra I and Algebra 2 for many years. Hello. I love mathematics, students of mathematics, and am enthusiastic about tutoring. I have a BA in Mathematics from UC Irvine, and a California Math Secondary teaching Credential. I have recently retired from LAUSD, where I taught high school math for 30 years that included 10 years in a gifted magnet program. I taught basic math, pre-algebra, geometry, algebra 2, pre-calculus, trigonometry, AP calculus, both AB and BC levels, basic probability and statistics, and some integrated ma... [more]

It seems like the people who end up teaching math are the ones who just "got it" themselves, so they can't understand why others struggle. I had to work hard to figure out math concepts, so I can relate. It's great when I can help a young person get their bearing right from the start with Algebra 1. I remember what it was like to struggle with science and math subjects, and I hope to remove the anxiety and frustration from these topics. I think all students can understand these topics... IF they have someone who will teach them the way they learn best. Not all students learn or are motivated [more]

I?ve always loved learning and sharing the joy of discovery and the thrill of a challenge with others. I find that the more a student can relate his or her own passions and experiences to a subject, the more that subject's material becomes a part of the student, rather than stale information to be memorized and forgotten. My goal, therefore, is to engage those I tutor, not merely to instruct. I graduated from Pomona College in 2006 Cum Laude with a B.A. degree in English and minors in Lingui... [more]

Algebra 1 is a subject I have utmost respect for, and one that has always just made sense to me (my students look at me like I'm crazy when I say, "I love Algebra!"). There are a lot of rules but if you follow them, you are set. Although I have always done well in math, I understand the struggle that some students experience when it comes to this often baffling subject. Sometimes it's because the student's math teacher may not be explaining the lessons well; other times, it's just a subject that the student has always found frustrating. But I am here to help you make sense of it all! It's trul [more]

I spent the last five years in the United Kingdom pursing graduate studies at the University of Oxford (International Relations) and King's College London (Defense Studies). Previously I lived, worked and studied in Washington, D.C. where I attended George Washington University (International Affairs major with minors in German and Political Science) and worked as a defense contractor. ...

I've been teaching algebra 1 to students of all ages for nearly 10 years. I introduce new concepts through examples and collaboration, keeping the student engaged in the problem solving process at every stage. I have been teaching students from elementary school through adulthood since I was twelve years old. My mother, a teacher herself, showed me that students learn best when they are active participants in every stage of the learning process. Thus, I focus on understanding each student's educational background and learning style, so as to break each task into pieces that are easy for them t [more]
