Hey there! My name is Nathan, and I graduated from UCLA with a degree in Linguistics and Computer Science. My passions include classical music, programming, fitness, and--of course--teaching.
I've been tutoring my peers since the sixth grade. Throughout school, I have excelled in all academic subjects (except sometimes history). Past students have noted my patient and detailed teaching style. I will not chastise a student for mistakes, nor am I satisfied until I know my student understands the material! I have always had a knack for math and science, but I'm also a confident and exacting writer and proofreader; I can ensure that my student's grammar is impeccable, and explain exactly how the rules work.
For three years (2010-2012), I wrote and proofread multiple-choice tests for a practice test company. I currently volunteer for BEAM, an organization at UCLA that aims to provide exciting science education for elementary school students in the Los Angeles area.
I do very well on standardized tests, and I know lots of little tricks and tips!
My standardized test scores are as follows: 2310 SAT (800 verbal, 740 math, 770 writing), 780 SAT II Math, 780 SAT II Chemistry. 5's on the following AP tests: Calculus BC and AB, U.S. History, U.S. Government, Comparative Government (without taking any class on it), Macroeconomics, Microeconomics. 4's on the following AP tests: Language and Composition, Language and Literature, Chemistry (without taking the AP class!), Statistics.
Throughout my school career, I never scored below Proficient on standardized tests, and more often than not made it into the Advanced category. Furthermore, I was a national champion in a competition called Academic Decathlon, which centers around testing students on detailed extra-curricular subjects. Hey there!

I offer lower rates for more elementary subjects such as algebra, geometry, and calculus, or for special circumstances. My listed rate is the HIGHEST I will charge.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have always been an avid reader, and throughout my academic career I have scored very well on standardized tests; for instance, I received 800 on the SAT Verbal category. The ACT curriculum is essentially identical to the other tests that I know how to take.
I got A's in Algebra in 7th grade, and have been using and improving my algebra skills ever since.
The CS courses at UCLA require us to interact with Linux on a daily basis. We have to be proficient at using the command line and solving normal problems. I am a competent Linux user and can explain computer usage in an easy-to-understand manner.
I have received five years of private musical training, which included some musical theory. I've also taken four years of music theory at my high school.
I have always been an avid reader, and I tend to do very well on tests like these. I also received 800 on the SAT Verbal section.
