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 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]

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]

Hello, I am Tina. I recently graduated from UC Irvine with a degree in Chemistry and I have also received American Chemical Society certification for professional education while at the university. I have been tutoring students in math and science for the past couple of years. I've tutored math subjects ranging from common core mathematics to differential equations. I've also tutored students in chemistry, biology, and physics. I have taught students one on one and have also tutored in aft... [more]

I have been teaching students from elementary school through adulthood since I was twelve years old. My mother, a teacher herself, showed me that students learn best when they are active participants in every stage of the learning process. Thus, I focus on understanding each student's educational background and learning style, so as to break each task into pieces that are easy for them to engage. I am energized by the tutoring process, and take great joy in seeing my students succeed. I am... [more]

In 2015, I graduated as a double major in Applied Mathematics and Quantitative Economics with double minors in Statistics and Education. In high school, I passed 8 AP exams and received 5's on Calc AB, Calc BC, Statistics, and Chinese. I have been tutoring students since high school and have had many years of experience tutoring mathematics. Over the years, I have taught both privately and in classroom settings. My favorite part of teaching is making a difference in students' academic succes... [more]

Trigonometry is one of my favorite subjects to tutor, largely because of it's applications in physics. As such, trig is probably the subject with which I have the most tutoring experience, and it is one of my favorite math subjects. I am intimately familiar with the subject, and over time I have developed effective strategies for explaining the concepts to students. My name is Chris, and I recently graduated from Azusa Pacific University with BS degrees in Math and Physics. Since I started school, I have been interested in tutoring, in large part because I have seen how much students have be [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 am a recent graduate of Cal State Long Beach. I have a B.S. in microbiology with a minor in chemistry, but have enjoyed learning and teaching other subjects. I started tutoring while in high school and have had the opportunity to adapt my teaching methods to various learning styles. I've tutored all age groups from elementary to college and have covered subjects from Spanish to Algebra. I think the best part about tutoring is watching a student have that breakthrough moment where they... [more]
