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.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

I can help anyone with the mathematics aspects to the ASVAB. I am a former high school math teacher, with well over 10 years of full time teaching & tutoring experience. I have typically more than one way to explain most math problems and I have a busy schedule because of my success with students. Though my schedule gets pretty full, I work six days a week and there are openings here and there, so please contact me to discuss. Thank you.

I am able to assist anyone with math-related questions to the College Level Academic Skills Test. I have an engineering degree from UCLA and well over 15 years of full-time teaching & tutoring experience. Thank you for you consideration.

I am able to tutor the math portion of the COOP / HSPT exams. I have an engineering degree from UCLA and well over 15 years of full-time teaching & tutoring experience. Since these tests are for admissions to Catholic Schools, I thought I would also mention I am a practicing Catholic. Thanks for your consideration.

I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering from UCLA and used Differential Equations in my engineering courses. I have also been actively working on problems and reading books on differential equations over the past few months and feel I understand them now better than I did in college.

I have tutored this subject successfully in the past. In the past I was both a faculty high school mathematics instructor and a junior college instructor. I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering and my math skills got me through it; that material is far tougher than discrete math, but more importantly I explain mathematics well.

I can effectively instruct all the math-related aspects of the GMAT. I am a former high school math teacher with well over 10 years of full time teaching & tutoring experience. I can also assist with some chemistry and physics. I have a mechanical engineering degree from UCLA and am comfortable with all math through and including Calculus. I am certified with wyzant to teach Algebra 1 & 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, PreCalculus, Calculus, physics and chemistry, as well as a few other topics.

I can effectively tutor the math and logic related questions for the GRE - I am a former full time high school math teacher and have years of experience with these types of problems. I am a full time tutor, this is not a part time endeavor for me.

I can effectively tutor the math and logic related questions for the MCAT - I am a former full time high school math teacher and have years of experience with these types of problems. I have an engineering degree from UCLA and have tutored all math through and including Calculus, plus physics and chemistry. I am a full time tutor, this is not a part time endeavor for me.

I would be able to help any student with the math portion of the Praxis examination. I am a former high school and community college teacher who tutors full-time. I have more experience solving problems than most teachers, but more importantly my explanations are easy to understand. Thanks for your consideration.

I would be able to help any student with the math portion of the PSAT. I work with a lot higher level math most of the time, but explaining this sort of math is like the alphabet to me and I can make it that easy for my students.
