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.

ACT Math

I offer help in three ways. I'll help you understand what the questions are asking you to solve. I'll help you build skills you may have forgotten; and I will give you test taking skills that will help you avoid common errors.

Algebra 1

I am a retired high school math and science teacher with 35 years experience. I have been tutoring grades 7 through college in the area since 2006. I will come to your home or meet at a place of your choice any time or day of the week. Besides helping on homework and test prep, I provide CHSEE and SAT prep and my own lessons when needed.

Algebra 2

I taught algebra 2 for most of my 35 years teaching in LA County and for the last several years I have been working for Wyzant tutoring math and science in this area. I am experienced with the curriculum the local districts use and have a lot of supplemental work to help with remediation if needed. I also have experience helping students do well on state and college entrance tests like the SAT. During a typical tutoring session, I will first help the student finish any homework assignment or prepare for a test. Then I will offer any extra practice that is needed and work on study habits and test taking skills. Since I am retired, I am available all day long and on weekends, however don't wait too long to contact me as I have a lot of students who stay with me all 4 years of high school as well as in the college years.

Geometry

Prealgebra

I will come to your home or meet at a place of your choice any time or day of the week. Besides helping on homework and test prep, I provide CHSEE and SAT prep and my own lessons when needed.

SAT Math

During most of my 35 years teaching in California, I was in charge of preparing our students for the math and science portions of the SAT and ACT tests. I offer: 1) Help to understand what the questions are asking you to find. 2) Reteaching the skills you may have forgotten. And 3) The test taking skills you need to earn the best score possible.

Study Skills

A lot of my 35 years teaching in California was spent working with struggling middle school and high school students. In these classes, I was responsible for developing a teaching approach that would meet the individual needs of each student. I designed and successfully used material that enabled students to catchup with their peers. I excel in one on one teaching that makes students successful.
