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]

Geometry is a very visual topic, because of all of the shapes. I enjoy discussing with students how to change these shapes into words and then equations. 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, basi [more]

I've tutored students in math subjects from pre-algebra to calculus, including geometry. I'm familiar with the Common Core geometry teaching method. 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 the same way, and I adapt my approach for each student's needs. When students don't understand the material due to the pace and style of the classroom [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]

After earning a B.S. in Physics from Penn State, I studied briefly as a PhD student in particle astrophysics before moving to Shanghai to teach high school physics. I later founded and managed Newton American Education Studio to help prepare Shanghai?s top students to enter and succeed at America's most selective universities. After relocating to the US, I've taught high school math at the prestigious Landon School outside Washington, DC, and am now in Los Angeles, CA where my wife Jenny teac... [more]

I have a Masters Degree in Electrical Engineering. The coursework involved in that degree revolves around Geometry and advanced Calculus mathematics. I have also spent over 100 hours tutoring Geometry with many satisfied clients as shown in my reviews. Not only do I know the math inside and out, I know how to teach it as well. Ah Mathematics. The bane of existence for many a child. The mighty struggle of all struggles. Math can be confusing, confounding, careless, and cruel. It can make you want to grab your hair and tear it out. It can make you want to toss your textbook across the room and s [more]

I also took Spanish classes at Yale and have lived in Latin America for over a year, including six months during 2014 in Mexico where I taught scuba diving in all three languages. I've also helped students wi... [more]
