Hi, my name is Tracy. I was born and raised in Taipei, Taiwan and in my late 20s I came to America with very little English. As a result, the only job I could find was in the Chinese restaurant business. After some years, I was frustrated with my inability to communicate with customers, so I enrolled in an ESL class and studied very hard. Later, with encouragement from my ESL teachers, I took community college level writing classes and, with much persistence, gradually improved my English. Te... [more]

I took the SAT II in Math three times, and on my final time I achieved a perfect 800. The trick? SAT Practice Exams! As it turns out, my teachers neglected to cover just ONE concept that was in several problem on the exam, so all I had to do was learn it. The example problems in a practice exam cover ALL of the material you will see on the test, (which, by the way, ONLY covers up to Algebra). So now, you just have to understand the limited number of concepts that you will be tested on. If you choose me to tutor you in SAT Math, I recommend you buy a practice exam book (with answers, no expla [more]

I've taught math for the last 12 years. My experience has been at the middle school and high school levels. Part of my teaching is to preparing students for different types of standardized tests such as the ACT, SAT, PSAT, CST, AP and IB. I have given workshops prepping students for these exams. I am a graduate of UC San Diego with a degree in Management Science and a minor in Art. I have a Master of Education from UC San Diego with credentials to teach Mathematics and Physics. I have supplemental credentials to also teach Business, Economics, and Art. As a high school student I scored [more]

As a lifelong learner, I am very driven to help others achieve their goals in the classroom. I've been a high school and college math tutor for 8 years, and worked for UCLA to teach upper division linear algebra. I do not aim to simply get my students to pass, but truly help them understand the material so they are not simply regurgitating information. I specialize in tutoring Pre-Calculus, Calculus I/II/III, any lower division math/stats course (linear algebra, discrete, diff eq's, etc.), ... [more]

Greetings! I have been an educator since 1987. A friend asked me to help a young girl who was struggling with feeling intimidated by her male tutor in ESL. I discovered then a passion for teaching and have been doing so in a variety of positions both formal and informal since then. I push my students to learn the specific information they ask of me. Perhaps more importantly though, it is my hope that they will find a passion for learning and gain skill sets that they can use in all their end... [more]

I have experience as a high school Science Olympiad coach, a high school tutor for physics and math, and a teaching assisant for physics and multivariable calculus at the university level. I like to take an "inverted pyramid" approach, in which I emphasize a strong grasp of a fundamental concepts of a subject (i.e. Newton's Laws, Kinematics Equations, Maxwell's Equations) and have them apply it to a wide range of problems. I like tutoring as not only does it reinforce my current knowledge ... [more]

I've been tutoring the SAT (including math) for five years, with an average final score increase of 250-350 points after 6-8 weeks (with higher increases for students who started off with lower scores). I've studied many of the most popular SAT prep books and created a system for approaching the test based on the best advice in each of those books. When I took the SAT in high school, I got a perfect 800/800 on the Math section. Since then, I've taken roughly a dozen practice tests and have never scored below 780 on a section. [more]

In preparing for the SAT Math test, you will maximize your post high school opportunities. Remember, by taking the SAT, you make yourself visible to colleges and scholarship agencies. I am committed to helping you understand not only math, but how the SAT test works, so that you can maximize your scores. Let's work together towards your college goals! As a Ph.D. in chemistry and biology I specialize in helping students get ahead, and stay ahead in advanced Science and Math courses. Whether you're reviewing for A.P. Biology and Chemistry, or looking for improvement in Organic Chemistry or Mole [more]

I am a chemist by training and by trade. I use the fundamental concepts of chemistry every day. I also have three years of experience teaching undergraduate chemistry while I was a graduate student at UC Irvine. My style of teaching emphasizes concepts and reasoning. The sciences can be overwhelming if you dive in head first, especially if you intend to memorize everything. But if you focus on a handful of basic concepts, you will be able to solve almost any problem. Furthermore, I kn... [more]

I enjoy helping students open doors for themselves by achieving high test scores and admission to selective schools because I was fortunate to have those doors opened for me through hours of hard work and the thoughtful advice of my own mentors. Particularly, I am focused on helping students prepare for and achieve admission to highly-selective colleges, universities, and professional graduate programs. In addition to admissions assistance and consulting, I help students build toward thei... [more]
