Background Check Status for Stan L.

Stan L. passed a background check on 3/13/14. The check was ordered by another user through First Advantage. For more information, please review the background check information page.

With my unique background and education, I can work successfully with a wide variety of students who have a wide variety of "issues" with learning math. I understand where the problems are, and how best to get past them and onto a confident path to math success.

My undergraduate degree is in mathematics, and I have worked as a computer professional, as well as a math tutor. My doctoral degree is in psychology. I think this is a wonderful combination: I can relate to students, understand their frustrations and fears, and at the same time I deeply understand math and take great joy in communicating this to reluctant and struggling students, as well as to able students who want to maximize their achievements.

I look forward to talking with parents about their concerns for their students. We CAN make a difference!

Linear Algebra

I have a BA in mathematics from UCLA, where linear algebra (matrices, vector analysis, etc.) were part of the curriculum.

I have been tutoring math for several years, including matrices and vectors.

I know the subject matter of linear algebra.


The study of psychology at all levels, from high school through undergraduate, Master's and Doctoral levels, including statistics, experimental design and methodology.

Study Skills

As a doctoral student in clinical psychology, I was hired by the university to teach study skills, test taking skills, and time management to incoming freshmen students.

As part of this job, I was trained in and provided materials for each of these topics.

I often find, when working with my students, that an important component of the tutoring is attention to these skills in addition to the specific subject areas for which tutoring had been requested.
