My name is Josh. I am a current student at MIT. For the 2012 school year though, I will be in the Southern California area and able to tutor you or your son/daughter! My major at MIT is currently Management Science. I have taken a lot of math classes and prefer to tutor any class up to Calculus. Also, I can help out with physics, and test prep for Math including the SAT.
I grew up in the area. I went to I-Poly High School, located on Cal Poly's Campus and have taken classes there. While in high school I was a tutor for my school and just have always been willing/enjoyed teaching others. I would say my most useful trait as a tutor is that I am very patient. I also always try and relate problems to real life, so students can better understand in addition to seeing why what they are learning is important.
In addition I am an expert for the SAT Math section. Besides working on my own with students from WyzAnt, I am an instructor at a well known and reputable private SAT academy. I can guarantee you will see an improvement on the Math score; my students commonly see improvements of 100-150 points! Math section alone. In addition to SAT Math, I can help with ACT, GRE, GMAT, ASVAB, SSAT and ISEE math sections.
Feel free to contact me and good luck on your search for a tutor.
