Hello and thank you for taking the time to view my profile! My name is Janet, and I am a highly qualified teacher with over a decade of teaching experience teaching multiple subjects. I've taught regular classes and worked with small groups of special needs students, the gifted, and EL students. I have also been working with students who are too ill to temporarily attend their neighborhood schools since 2008 through the Home & Hospital Program at Irvine Unified School District. In additio...

I have been teaching and tutoring math since I was in college, and have been doing it professionally for the last 15 years. I tutor mostly high school and college students, but I have tutored 3rd grade thru univesity too. I enjoy math and I have many different ways to approach difficult subjects. I am NOT big on memorizing formulas, although there are a few that DO need to be memorized. I try to approach math from a logical perspective so that the formulas and functions make sense. I am ...

I really enjoy tutoring logic, inductive reasoning, deductive reasoning, and two column proofs. I connect with the student to create a logical and efficient two column proof based on deductive reasoning using theorems, postulates, and definitions. We have fun with proofs on popular topics such as parallel lines, congruent triangles, and CPCTC. I believe students should be confident in their math skills. By getting good grades in school, their options in life (e.g. jobs, career paths) are kept open. I gauge where the student is at in knowing the concepts by having him/her work out the probl [more]

I can help organize the information, guide students through numerous examples and suggest extra exercises. I've helped students succeed through accelerated summer programs with these methods. I also highlight topics particularly important to the SAT math section. I have been around instructors for my entire life. My mother was a general tutor for the neighborhood and I helped her when our small apartment was stuffed with children and textbooks, writing, reading and aiding them with math after my own homework was done. Much later, I found a paying job at a small tutoring center. There, I mainly [more]

Geometry instruction for most students begins with strange objects like lines and triangles. Proofs often seem especially confusing. My expertise derives from my studies in the physical sciences, which require a frequent application of geometric analysis (Einstein famously needed only the Pythagorean Theorem to illustrate Special Relativity). I like to give students concrete examples of the utility of the techniques, show them why proving certain ideas is so important. I suspect I've come to an understanding of mathematics unlike just about anyone you might have met. I could discuss it endles [more]

I have 12 years paid tutoring experience and a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering from UCSD with a minor in Science Education. Most of my tutoring experience is with students between grades 7-12 primarily in Mathematics and science, but I also tutor Spanish, English, and College level Mathematics and Sciences. I can come to you, either at your home or a neutral location such as a library. I love learning and I love helping others learn. It makes me really happy to see students succeed and grow in...

Geometry is one of my favorite subjects. I teach my students where formulas come from instead of just drilling them in memorization. Application of Algebra concepts to solve Geometry problems are reviewed. I have more than 15 years of experience in tutoring students of all ages and levels of education from elementary to graduate school. I am most interested in changing the way my students perceive themselves when approaching math. Throughout the years, I have had the most rewarding experience when my students, besides turning their grades around, feel empowered to the point they become a math [more]

Geometry is one of my favorite subjects in math. I am a natural in it. My techniques make students not only memorize the formulas, but to understand the concept. This makes the concepts to be fresh in their minds whenever they are taking a test. I have been a tutor for Math and Farsi for about 15 years now. I used to work for an institution in LA while working as a private tutor as well. Now, due to my busy schedule and high demand I only do private and small group tutoring. I am good with children, having two of my own. My teaching techniques are effective and fun and my students have a gre [more]

I am a UCI honors graduate in mathematics with a minor in computer science. I started tutoring as a favor for a friend and have found that tutoring is one of the most rewarding experiences I can have. Many of my students have gone from D's with no understanding to A's with the ability to peer tutor their classmates. It is always wonderful to enter a student's home and hear "I got an A on the test!" or "the teacher says I am her most improved student." I look for the concepts that students... [more]

Certification test passed with 100% score. I am formerly a member of staff at Saddleback College, Mission Viejo, California, where I tutored Mathematics and Chemistry in the Learning Resource Center (LRC). In the Spring of 2012, I was honored by being the only tutor ever to be appointed to the 300 Club, the highest award given for tutoring at the college. I also tutor school students and my youngest so far has been in 4th Grade. My aim is to ensure that my students develop a good basic understanding of the subject so that their self ... [more]
