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]

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 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]

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]

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]

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]

Sometimes certain material isn't just as readily accessible to everyone and it can be rather frightening when exam deadlines are approaching. I work with students to understand the scope of what they need to learn and develop steady schedules that we can follow to carefully and timely cover the material for a course or upcoming exam. I have four years experience as a volunteer tutor at Arcadia High School and several months experience as a private tutor. I In those previous experiences I've ... [more]

First off: Hello, and thank you very much for considering me for your tutoring needs. My name is Mark M., born and raised in La Puente, California. Bishop Amat graduate, Rio Hondo College transfer, and currently one year away from getting my Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering major. I have always had a strong attraction to math and sciences, even when I was as young as 7 or 8. I am enrolled in Chemistry that deals with Equilibrium and Kinetics, Physics that emphasizes Statics, and le... [more]
