My name is Ljiljana and I am a math professor with an extensive teaching/tutoring experience. I explore different teaching methods to help my students succeed in math and school in general. My tutoring lately is focused on SAT preparation, and pre-calculus classes, however I am open to all math levels tutoring. I consider myself an excellent educator and a very good mentor who is hard working, but also funny, friendly and easy to get along with. Feel free to contact me and ask about my s... [more]

I became a math major because I couldn't imagine school without doing mathematics. I've worked with students who feel exactly the opposite: they can't imagine enjoying school when "doing" mathematics is part of the equation. In my eight years of teaching (Pre-algebra through Precalculus) and 16 years of tutoring (Pre-algebra through Calculus as well as Integrated Math 1-3 as part of the Common Core Curriculum), I've discovered that many students who just didn't "get math," achieved understan...

I taught middle school for a decade and am well aware of what the PSAT covers. Instead of focusing narrowly on ?test-taking skills,? as I find too many tutors do, I aim to use a student?s focus on the exam to teach them to be a truly better thinker. While many question the benefits of standardized testing, exams such as these, I believe, require important skills of precision and logic. Training an adolescent in the early years of high school to be precise with language and logical in reasoning pays enormous dividends as they move to more mature thought and more advanced SAT testing.

As a professional PSAT tutor, I focus on the moment-by-moment experience my students have while doing each specific type of problem this test offers. By noticing where they get in their own way, my students develop their own techniques and learn how to teach themselves. I fully expect, for example, that you will find that the PSAT more accurately reflects your intelligence when you write out your work for each problem. I serve merely as a guide for this self-discovery and have seen phenomenal results with this approach. [more]

I'm a graduate of U.C. Berkeley (Chemistry) and Stanford (M.S., Chemistry), and I've taught in high school and university classrooms and tutored privately since 1992. When I was at Stanford, my students gave me a teaching (T.A.) rating of 4.93/5.00, and I'm currently credentialed as a science and math teacher. While I was designing the ACT prep class at Oklahoma Christian School, a student asked me to help him get a perfect score of 36. One of my other students spoke up, saying, ?Your teache... [more]

I have a PhD and a Bachelors degree in chemistry. I am currently employed as a nanoscience engineer in Silicon Valley. I was previously a science researcher for an Ivy League university. I also have a background in scientific education. I have served as an instructor and/or teaching assistant for college- and graduate-level general, physical, and analytical chemistry courses. I have also served as a tutor for high school and college physics, chemistry, and mathematics intermittently for ab... [more]

Your success is my goal. I work with you to expand on the strengths you already have and bridge any gaps we identify. I prefer to work with the books and materials you use in school so you can immediately apply the skills we build together. I do not give you the answers but rather show you how to become self-sufficient and an independent learner. I?ll teach you highly-effective study skills, best practices and how to develop a solid study program. You?ll learn how to plan ahead so you can fee... [more]

I have been a tutor for more than 20 years. I have taught hundreds of students during this time. My students master the Math, English, and Test Preparation Skills required for standardized tests. I tutor for the ACT, PSAT, SAT, GMAT, and GRE. Many of my students have done exceptionally well on these tests. I was the principal instructor for a major test preparation company for a number of years, and I am certified to teach test prep for the PSAT, ACT, SAT, GMAT, and GRE. For more than ten years, I was an instructor for Math, Reading and Writing for a major after-school education program. As [more]

I have a BSc in Chemistry with an emphasis in Biochemistry and minors in Biology and Mathematics. I also have an MS in Environmental Health and an MS in Civil Engineering with an emphasis in environmental studies. I have tutored extensively at the middle, high school, and community college levels for basic skills, composition, mathematics (algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and arithmetic), chemistry, physics, and biology. I taught freshman chemistry at the college level. My philosophical a... [more]

I have worked with students of all ages and levels, from preschool through graduate school. While I have expertise in teaching reading, literature, writing and creative writing, I also have experience in tutoring math subjects. I think math is fun!?and I try to make it fun for my students. As a recent student myself, I know that good study skills are essential to making schoolwork a more pleasant and efficient process. While studying at Sonoma State University I served as a Teaching Assistan... [more]
