Professional Full-Time Tutor --- UCLA Graduate

Tutoring is my full time job. With well over 20 years of teaching/tutoring experience, I doubt there are many tutors as patient, talented or effective as I am. I bring a lot more to the table than what you see "on paper" and am constantly told by my students how well I explain things. Though other tutors may be cheaper, I am more efficient due to my experience and explanations. After 5 lessons, one of my SAT Math students improved her Math test score by 140 points last year! Another went... [more]


Algebra 1

I have had tremendous success with my math students, including Algebra 1.


Algebra 2

I have been tutoring Algebra 2 since I was 14 years old because the kids sitting next to me in high school would ask me how to do different problems. I have a degree in Engineering from UCLA and my math skills are what got me through it! Most importantly I can explain the material well and make it easier.


Calculus

I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering from UCLA where I actually used Calculus regularly in my upper level classes. I tutor full-time and it is fair to say typically three hours a night are with Calculus students, sometimes I tutor AB, BC or other forms of Calculus five or more hours in a day solving a variety of problems.


Chemistry

I am able to tutor first year chemistry, especially towards the second half of the class where mathematics is a bigger part of the course.


Geometry

I am very successful explaining mathematics to all levels of student, including Geometry.


Physics

I teach a lot of physics (almost daily, sometimes a few lessons per day) and show students how to be successful even when they do not totally understand the concepts (sometimes that understanding takes time to sink in). Mostly I use mathematics to work towards the solutions to the problems and show the student how to also check units of measure as part of the answer.


Prealgebra

I am very effective in explaining math to all levels of students, including Prealgebra.


Precalculus

Precalculus is like the alphabet to me and I explain it very well. I tutor PreCalculus on a daily basis.


Trigonometry

I am fluent in Trigonometry and have a variety of ways to show students how to check their work and understanding. I explain it well and pretty much know Trigonometry inside out.


Statistics


SAT Math

I had a student improve her SAT math score by 140 points after five lessons with me; another went from a 620 to a 700 after four lessons with me.


Physical Science


Probability

I can assist students with probability and have effective ways to explain the material.


Discrete Math

I have tutored this subject successfully in the past. In the past I was both a faculty high school mathematics instructor and a junior college instructor. I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering and my math skills got me through it; that material is far tougher than discrete math, but more importantly I explain mathematics well.


Differential Equations

I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering from UCLA and used Differential Equations in my engineering courses. I have also been actively working on problems and reading books on differential equations over the past few months and feel I understand them now better than I did in college.


GRE

I can effectively tutor the math and logic related questions for the GRE - I am a former full time high school math teacher and have years of experience with these types of problems. I am a full time tutor, this is not a part time endeavor for me.


MCAT

I can effectively tutor the math and logic related questions for the MCAT - I am a former full time high school math teacher and have years of experience with these types of problems. I have an engineering degree from UCLA and have tutored all math through and including Calculus, plus physics and chemistry. I am a full time tutor, this is not a part time endeavor for me.


GMAT

I can effectively instruct all the math-related aspects of the GMAT. I am a former high school math teacher with well over 10 years of full time teaching & tutoring experience. I can also assist with some chemistry and physics. I have a mechanical engineering degree from UCLA and am comfortable with all math through and including Calculus. I am certified with wyzant to teach Algebra 1 & 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, PreCalculus, Calculus, physics and chemistry, as well as a few other topics.


ASVAB

I can help anyone with the mathematics aspects to the ASVAB. I am a former high school math teacher, with well over 10 years of full time teaching & tutoring experience. I have typically more than one way to explain most math problems and I have a busy schedule because of my success with students. Though my schedule gets pretty full, I work six days a week and there are openings here and there, so please contact me to discuss. Thank you.


CLAST

I am able to assist anyone with math-related questions to the College Level Academic Skills Test. I have an engineering degree from UCLA and well over 15 years of full-time teaching & tutoring experience. Thank you for you consideration.


COOP/HSPT

I am able to tutor the math portion of the COOP / HSPT exams. I have an engineering degree from UCLA and well over 15 years of full-time teaching & tutoring experience. Since these tests are for admissions to Catholic Schools, I thought I would also mention I am a practicing Catholic. Thanks for your consideration.


Praxis

I would be able to help any student with the math portion of the Praxis examination. I am a former high school and community college teacher who tutors full-time. I have more experience solving problems than most teachers, but more importantly my explanations are easy to understand. Thanks for your consideration.


PSAT

I would be able to help any student with the math portion of the PSAT. I work with a lot higher level math most of the time, but explaining this sort of math is like the alphabet to me and I can make it that easy for my students.


SOL

I can assist any student with the Virginia SOL (Standards of Learning) tests in Algebra, Geometry and/or Chemistry and have extensive experience doing so. Thanks very much for your consideration.


SSAT

I could help any student with the math-related aspects of the SSAT. I am sure this level of math and types of questions would be fun for me, so I figure I could make it fun for the student as well. Thanks for your consideration.


ACT Math

I am fluent in math and can explain the ACT math section very well.
