“A wise teacher makes learning a joy.”
I am Yasi and I have been tutoring for the past 10 years. I graduated with Magna Cum Laude honors from UCLA in 2005. Soon after, I pursued my graduate studies in the field of clinical psychology
. I have both a Master of Arts (2009) and a Doctor of Philosophy
(2013) in clinical psychology.
Growing up, I had a knack for all subjects. Not only was I good at school, but I loved teaching and working with others. So, as I worked my way through school, tutoring seemed like a natural choice for me. My first student was in 11th grade, and I tutored him in algebra
, and English
. From there, I slowly built my clientele and found that many of my students needed help with math
. Sometimes they were struggling to pass and other times they needed the extra support to get an "A." As a result, I gained extensive experience tutoring math, specifically in algebra I
& II, and geometry
. However, I also have experience with English, writing
, and science
. More recently, I started tutoring students in undergraduate and graduate level psychology courses. Lastly, I have experience with learning disabilities.
In addition to experience, I strive to teach my students in a way that is simple and motivating. I challenge students to think critically and creatively as I believe that learning and good study habits incorporate more than just memorizing. An effective learner can adapt to new situations and think on his/her feet. This is an important skill not just in learning and test taking, but in life.
I love teaching and would love the opportunity to support you or your child in your academic endeavors. Feel free to contact me to set up an appointment and/or if you have any questions. Below you will find a list of subjects I tutor. Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.
Tutors have the ability to create educational resources and share them with the WyzAnt community.
Here are some of the resources created by Yasi.

A certain level of anxiety is helpful as it inspires one to take action and study. However, too much anxiety can lead to avoidance behavior as one may procrastinate, or it may cause one too freeze during test time. This can lead to going "blank" during the
test—all of a sudden your forget everything, perhaps you lose your ability to focus, your heart starts beating faster, and you...
Study time does not = learning
To enhance your study time try to focus on the bigger picture rather than just memorizing facts.
Remember, more effort now means less effort later. So, be present & attentive now.
1. Look for the big picture & connect facts together. Also, connect new information with existing info.
2. Utilize metaphors. Metaphors connect 2 unrelated...
1.Distinguishing similarities vs. Differences
Go over the titles of each lesson and be able to distinguish how they are different and similar.
*How was yesterdays homework lesson different than today?
