Effective and Enjoyable Tutor

I earned a Masters in Science in Educational Psychology from Cal State Hayward. I was licensed as a Marriage Family Child Therapist. I majored in English and minored in Communications for my B.A. degree. My love of teaching comes from a lifelong of learning both in and out of the classroom. I delight in helping students to realize their potential and improve their performance on tests. I help students release negative mindsets, attitudes and beliefs that may be blocking their ability to study, and replace these with training that develops confidence and joy in learning new skills.

Retired Aerospace Engineer. Professional Tutor for Math and English.

As a Kumon Instructor for 11 years, I taught every aspect of Math and English from basic skills to college level work. During that time, I have taught hundreds of teens and young adults to understand that mastering these skills is vital, not only to getting into the college of their choice, but to being successful at the college level and beyond. Along the way, I have also taught these students to write excellent college applications and essays, and many of them have been accepted to top tier schools. [more]

Effective Math Tutor (Northwestern U Engineering PhD)

Having recently gone through the college application process with my kids, I know how stressful it can be. You only have one chance to make a good impression on each college you apply to. My wife and I have spent hundreds of hours researching on the internet, attended seminars from admission officers from different colleges and visited the campuses of many of these top colleges. I am very familiar with the subtle difference between what these top colleges look for. I can consult on how to make the student stand out with the appropriate extracurricular activities and the unique personal stateme [more]

In college I was a Big Brother and served as a mentor and tutor. I have served as a teacher and tutor in many different contexts since then, including youth group and senior-citizen groups [more]

Stanford Cell Biologist with a Passion for Teaching Others

I was accepted to Stanford, Columbia, John's Hopkins and many others for undergrad. I have worked with admissions officers and advisors.

It is impossible to succeed in my major without being passionate, not just about the field itself, but about math, biology, chemistry, physics, computational modeling, medicine, and everything in between. I am a student driven purely by curiosity of the world and in being so curious, h [more]
