I've tutored math for over 4 years, with students ranging from junior high through college ages. In high school I received a 5 on the AP calculus exam, and won a Boeing math scholarship in college. I have a friendly and patient approach, and proven improvement in student performance. I discovered a talent for teaching during my time at Cal Poly Pomona as an engineering major. While working towards my graduation as valedictorian and summa cum laude, I found many of my classmates struggling with their assignments. I soon developed a reputation for my ability to walk them through their diffic [more]

Precalculus provides all the "mechanics" required for calculus. Often this subject is the most difficult for high school students, as it requires them to become familiar with Trigonometric functions, the unit circle, identities, and functions with discontinuities such as asymptotes & holes. While challenging, the students who manage to master the major themes of the subject and stay organized will have a tremendous advantage in navigating the nuances of calculus. Are you looking for an expert math & standardized test tutor with 10+ years of experience? Someone who doesn't just teach the subjec [more]

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]

Hi! I'm Vincent, a recent graduate of Harvard University who moved to Los Angeles a few months ago. I've had lots of experience tutoring a wide variety of math subjects. I've done in-home tutoring in Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, and Calculus. Not only that, but I've worked professionally as a group tutor for first-year college Physics. Prior to getting my graduate degree at Harvard, I attended Pomona College in Claremont, CA, where I earned a 3.8 GPA. While at Pomona I was able to m... [more]

I have over 3 years of experience teaching Pre-Calculus in the classroom. I focus heavily on the rigor and my students have consistently outperformed the district benchmark by 25%. At one point, my students' test scores were ranked #1 in the district. Hi, thank you for visiting my page. Worked as a Pre-Calculus and Calculus teacher with strong credentialing, I have over 5 years of classroom experience. Outside the classroom, I have garnered over 10 years of tutoring experience, specializing in middle school and high school math. I am extremely passionate about Math education and I want all s [more]

The thought of taking calculus frightens many students. While it is true that calculus is a difficult subject, the steps leading to it are not that scary. I hope to prove this to you. My goal is to simplify the subject of precalculus. Thus, less memorization, more learning. Let me show you how you can learn more while spending less time and effort in the process. In fact, a lot of the learning process includes things that you probably already know! And the amazing thing about this process is that it can be applied to a lot of subjects, both mathematical and otherwise. Teachers often do [more]

Precalculus is the subject matter that I have taught the most. It is an area where many students initially struggle, but with the right tutelage, eventually thrive. I have developed a number of carefully tailored techniques to get students zipping through the most challenging of topics, such as logarithmic equations, trigonometric functions, probabilities, and sequences. I personally received an "A" in the subject matter during my sophomore year in high school. I love math. I truly do. Since as long as I can remember, I've always found it fascinating, interesting, and highly rewarding. But [more]

We're not going to just memorize equations! For ten years, I've tutored and taught classes on math and physics in America and abroad. We will work through your pre-calc together. By the end, you'll have a solid math foundation for whatever it is you're trying to do. Unlike my classmates who left for the defense industry, I dreamed to be a physics professor. I earned a scholarship to graduate school and hoped to be a better university teacher than those that I had. But the physicists seemed to invest more in papers and journals than in their students. I exited the ivory tower for Shanghai where [more]

Hi everyone, my background in tutoring stems from work I did with the LA Youth crisis center where I volunteered tutoring the group of teens that were living there. The structure there had a bit of a classroom feel with an effort to understand each students needs. My personal style is to have some structured lessons but maintain a very student centered approach to make sure they are getting the information and the help required. I have a bachelor's degree from UC Davis in engineering and took... [more]

Currently finishing up on my PhD at UCLA in plasma physics, I love being able to give back some of my knowledge by helping out students with math/physics coursework. I have tutored throughout my undergraduate and graduate education, and have been a TA for introductory undergraduate physics courses. I understand that many become discouraged from continuing in physics/math because they are disillusioned with the coursework, so I work on approaching problems from different methods in order to fi...
