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 have a PhD in Biophysics, an MS in Physics, and BAs in Physics and Humanities. I've been tutoring high school, college, and graduate students for 23 years in various levels of math. I like to help students move from "Math Anxiety," to "It's only math!" 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 will teach them the way they learn best. Not all students learn or are motivated the same way, and I adapt my approach for each [more]

Trigonometry is typically not taught as a standalone subject. It is usually folded into a precalculus/math analysis class taken the year after Algebra 2. By far, student regularly cite this as the most challenging portion of a precalculus class. It requires a great deal of memorization and an ability to juggle multiple equations/identities. I usually spend a great deal of time drilling students in the unit circle. We then transition to the basic and intermediate identities. Proving an identity is typically the hardest task. Once students develop their basic knowledge sufficiently, I give t [more]

I taught trigonometry/precalculus classes for many years in Los Angeles Unified. I like to teach trigonometry visually, using triangles and the unit circle. I can them transfer the information from these triangles to make the graphs of sine and cosine. Hello. I love mathematics, students of mathematics, and am enthusiastic about tutoring. I have a BA in Mathematics from UC Irvine, and a California Math Secondary teaching Credential. I have recently retired from LAUSD, where I taught high school math for 30 years that included 10 years in a gifted magnet program. I taught basic math, pr [more]

Trigonometry is an integral part of both geometry and pre-calculus, which together lay the foundation for mathematical physics. As a result, I understand trigonometry very well. I am extremely well-versed in the uses and interpretations of sine, cosine, tangent, secant, cosecant, and cotangent and all of their inverse functions. I have been using trigonometry and tutoring it for a long time, so I can help students develop a firm hold on the material. I am a creative and effective tutor with Master's Degree in Physics and years of experience working with students of all ages. I have an excellen [more]

Hi! My name is Joel and I graduated from MIT in 2010. I love studying and explaining mathematics. I actually enjoy math SO much, that I dedicated four years to learning all about it. Now I can pass the knowledge on to you! I have designed lesson plans that range from one-day study sessions to long term course help or SAT prep. Before and after each lesson, I ask myself which topics have been difficult for the student and come prepared with a better method to teach and reinforce the ideas. On... [more]

I was a senior instructor in the University of Chinese Culture's math department for five years. I was dispatched by Taiwan's Education Administration to Nasinu College in Fiji Island as a math and computer teacher. I have had 10 years of computer networking experience in the United States and five years as a management supervisor. Currently, I have been a math tutor for 13 years for grades 4 to 12 in the East San Gabriel Valley. My success in helping students improve their grades is evident... [more]

Hi, I'm Zeth. I am a credentialed high school Math teacher, currently teaching in Granada Hills. I've been teaching for 11 years. I have taught Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, AP Calculus AB, and AP Calculus BC. My favorite to teach is AP Calculus AB and BC. Why? Because it requires the students to use all the math they have learned prior: Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, and Pre-Calculus. It is a lot of fun diagnosing which math skill a student is lac... [more]

A graduate of USC (a proud Trojan...fight on!), I have a deep passion for tutoring and teaching. I started my own tutoring business when I was in high school and have enjoyed it ever since then. Learning is one of my favorite things in life, and I try to pass that enthusiasm on to my students. An aspiring director, I use my theatre skills in tutoring by connecting with a wide variety of people, improvising new ways to communicate the material, and engaging interest in the subject matter. Frie... [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]
