Tutoring is my full time job. With well over 20 years of teaching/tutoring experience, I doubt there are many tutors as patient, talented or effective as I am. I bring a lot more to the table than what you see "on paper" and am constantly told by my students how well I explain things. Though other tutors may be cheaper, I am more efficient due to my experience and explanations. After 5 lessons, one of my SAT Math students improved her Math test score by 140 points last year! I have a degree from UCLA in mechanical engineering; my math skills are what got me through it. I was always a top math student in high school and college, and I am able to patiently show students more than one way to solve most problems. I get along well with younger people and am able to connect in order to explain math, which I know many students do not like. I am also effective with adult students who I know can feel awkward about material they have not seen in years. I was a full time high school math teacher and left that because my math tutoring business in the Los Angeles area became so busy due to my success with students. After that, I was briefly a community college instructor in Arizona, before I moved back to the Northern Virginia suburbs 5 years ago to be near my family again. I have been tutoring full-time for these past 5 years in the DC area. References can be provided upon request. I can tutor all high school math including calculus, pre-calculus, trigonometry, geometry and Algebra I&II; plus SAT, GRE, ACT and other standardized test preparation. I can also tutor Physics and first year Chemistry.
