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]

As a research scientist, I actually use this math on a regular basis, so I can help you see how it's relevant to practical life! ;) I've been tutoring high school, college, and graduate students for 23 years, and nearly every subject requires some math refreshing. I don't think math classes are usually taught well in school, so getting some extra personal help is a great idea! 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 [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've always loved learning. To me, teaching is an extension of that thirst for education. I started tutoring my fellow classmates in high school and never stopped seeking to help others learn. In graduate school, I taught writing and rhetoric classes to students from the science and engineering schools, helping them develop vital communication skills. My biggest passion is for the English language -- I love helping students express their thoughts as well as teaching them how to see the b... [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 believe that every student can learn. This has been my cornerstone philosophy in teaching my entire career. I believe in engaging my students in the learning process and challenging them to learn concepts that can then apply to any problem. I believe that fun is an integral part of learning and try to incorporate it into every lesson. I have been involved in education for over 25 years. I have taught from 5th through graduate school. I have specialized in teaching children that are low pe... [more]

I have worked for Top Prep companies in the Los Angeles Area for the past 6 years. I have focused on the math aspects of the test. I have helped students to raise their scores by 5 or 10 points in just a few short months of preparation. I am familiar with a wide variety of test prep strategies and have adapted my approach to students with a broad range of individual needs. Having completed my PhD, I have succeeded at every level of academic achievement; with almost 15 years of teaching experience, I am an expert at helping you or your child do the same. My focus is on helping your student ace [more]

I am a Harvard University graduate (cum laude) with almost 13 years of tutoring experience. I have achieved perfect scores on the GRE, GMAT, SAT, and ACT, and scored in the 99th percentile on my LSAT exam prior to law school. While in law school, I was a faculty lecturer for the University of San Diego's Test Prep Program, specializing in GRE, LSAT, SAT, GMAT, and college and graduate school application essay writing. During my time at Harvard, where I was a joint-concentrator in Comparativ... [more]

For as long as I can remember, I have loved math. For the past 5 years I have worked as a credentialed high school math teacher (AP Calculus, Trigonometry, Statistics, Geometry) to ensure that all my students understand and feel confident in their own unique math talents. I have been tutoring students in math & SAT/ACT prep for 12+ years and have worked with hundreds of students to increase their math capabilities and comprehension. I graduated from USC with a full-ride academic scholarship a... [more]

This is one of my favorite areas. Studying for the SAT/ACT tests really helps to focus on how thorough the student's basic understanding of the material is. I give students ways to relate and hence better remember the material they studied in Geometry and Algebra. We also practice test taking strategies. When they miss a particular problem type, I make up similar questions to be sure the student now understands how to do the problem. Too many students are used to memorizing "problem types" for tests. Then when they are faced with a problem that asks for information in a different way they [more]
