Over many years it has been a thrill to see my students increase their grades in math, science and English as well as their scores on the SAT and ACT tests. I enjoy seeing students get the "ah-ha" moment when they begin to comprehend.
I am a National Merit Finalist who has tutored and taught classes extensively, including AP Calculus, AP Statistics, Precalc, and Physics in high school, Algebra at Pepperdine University, and Computer Science at CSUN. I hold a Master's degree in Computer Science from CSUF and worked as a senior programmer analyst.
Many of my SAT classes have been taught in school classroom settings. My specialized SAT techniques have helped several of my students increase over 400 points in a short time. A recent student is enjoying a full scholarship at West Point after we got his score up almost 300 points!
Similar tips and tricks in other subjects such as Algebra 1 and 2, Geometry, Trig, PreCalculus, Calculus, Spanish, and German have improved the grades of my students. I had 5 years of Spanish in high school and use it frequently. I studied German in college, lived briefly in Germany, and have German-speaking family members including a native speaker in my household.
During tutoring, continuous feedback from having the student use the point just discussed helps us find what is specifically needed so we can reinforce it on the spot with immediate practice. I will explain concepts simply in different ways until you get it.
Let's get started!
I tutor in Woodland Hills. In an emergency, I have tutored over the phone, using emails, faxes, and writing down the steps to coordinate the phone work. It's not preferred, but can also be effective in an emergency.
*** I'm offering classes for only $20/hr. The classes will cover SAT/ACT prep, Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Math analysis, Precalculus, and Calculus. With a minimum of 3 students in the class, you all get the bargain rate. Contact me for more details.
