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]

I teach because it allows me to share my love of learning. I'm most satisfied when I can awaken a new interest in a ?boring? subject or show a student a new way of looking at a problem. I get excited when students tell me that they see connections that weren't there before or that they finally understand something that has always baffled them. I try to bring passion to everything I teach, and I work hard to push my students to their highest potential. I'm an English and History specialist wi... [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]

Having not only taught but also taken and aced the SAT many, many times, I know from personal experience what it takes to get a high score. As a compassionate and entertaining test-prep mentor and guide, I ensure that students have the four most important things they need to succeed on test day: mastery of math content, mastery of test-taking strategies, the right kind of practice, and the right test-taking attitude. As a result of working with me, many of my students have achieved perfect or near-perfect scores on every section of the SAT, and that fills me with joy. But I am nearly as ha [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 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]
