As a lifelong learner, I am very driven to help others achieve their goals in the classroom. I've been a high school and college math tutor for 8 years, and worked for UCLA to teach upper division linear algebra. I do not aim to simply get my students to pass, but truly help them understand the material so they are not simply regurgitating information.

I specialize in tutoring Pre-Calculus, Calculus I/II/III, any lower division math/stats course (linear algebra, discrete, diff eq's, etc.), and many upper division math/stats courses as well. I also offer SAT, ACT, GRE general math tutoring.

As far as qualifications, I have a BS from UCLA in Applied Math/Economics, and am currently working a Masters degree in Biostatistics at SDSU. I scored an 800 on SAT Math and a 167/170 quantitative score on the new GRE, as well as 5's on AP Calc AB/BC and AP Physics.

I care deeply about my students' successes, and hold myself to a very high standard with regards to tutoring. I have full moneyback guarantee if you're not satisfied with your experience.

Thank you for your interest, and I look forward to speaking with you soon. Have a great day.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Linear Algebra

I taught linear algebra for a year at UCLA AAP. I received an A+ in upper division linear algebra at UCLA. I use it frequently in statistics/economics courses.

AJ’s Resources

Tutors have the ability to create educational resources and share them with the WyzAnt community. Here are some of the resources created by AJ. View all of AJ’s resources

You would want to find a Z table that computes area under the curve to the left of a given z score.   Then, compute the Z score for 93 using z = (x - μ)/σ = (93 - 100)/15 = -7/15 = .4667   By symmetry, the area to the left of -0.4667 is equal to the area to the right...

The first thing you want to do is eliminate the denominators. This is done by multiplying each term by the Least Common Denominator (LCD) of the equation.    For this one, the LCD is 9*(x-1). Multiplying each term by that gives  8*9 + (x-1)*(x-8) = 10*9   From...
