“A wise teacher makes learning a joy.”
I am Yasi and I have been tutoring for the past 10 years. I graduated with Magna Cum Laude honors from UCLA in 2005. Soon after, I pursued my graduate studies in the field of clinical psychology. I have both a Master of Arts (2009) and a Doctor of Philosophy (2013) in clinical psychology.
Growing up, I had a knack for all subjects. Not only was I good at school, but I loved teaching and working with others. So, as I worked my way through school, tutoring seemed like a natural choice for me. My first student was in 11th grade, and I tutored him in algebra II, chemistry, and English. From there, I slowly built my clientele and found that many of my students needed help with math. Sometimes they were struggling to pass and other times they needed the extra support to get an "A." As a result, I gained extensive experience tutoring math, specifically in algebra I & II, and geometry. However, I also have experience with English, writing, history, and science. More recently, I started tutoring students in undergraduate and graduate level psychology courses. Lastly, I have experience with learning disabilities.
In addition to experience, I strive to teach my students in a way that is simple and motivating. I challenge students to think critically and creatively as I believe that learning and good study habits incorporate more than just memorizing. An effective learner can adapt to new situations and think on his/her feet. This is an important skill not just in learning and test taking, but in life.
I love teaching and would love the opportunity to support you or your child in your academic endeavors. Feel free to contact me to set up an appointment and/or if you have any questions. Below you will find a list of subjects I tutor. Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. “A wise teacher makes learning a joy.”

We reviewed a math test for a retake and she used colors and teqniques to memories it for the the test and i got a solid B on the retake
Yasi is so great, we love her! she has a great way of communicating so that my daughter understands her. She's very patient and kind.
Yasi has tutored my two daughters and both had amazing results! She's personable and very knowledgeable. Both daughters expressed having a greater understanding of their challenging math course after spending time with Yasi :)
Will definitely use her in the future!
Yasi's made such a difference in my daughter's math comprehension. She's very patient, extremely
well organized and comes prepared to take her responsibility seriously. I'm very pleased!
Yasi is amazing and knows exactly how to work with the material to make it user friendly. Our daughter was doing well in geometry, but she wanted to spend extra time with the material and have a better understanding of it for exams. Yasi not only reviews the material already learned, but also works ahead to explain the material ahead of time, so when it is discussed in class there is a better foundation for learning the topic. It's been only a few weeks, but already my daughter is seeing progress and is more confident in the material and her mastery of it. Thanks Yasi!
This was the first time in which I stuck around for a lesson. I noticed Yasi was patiently and happily questioning with each step to ensure each step was fully understood. I liked how they were both engaged in feedback, which helps to grasp the material after the lesson is over. This was great for a little girl who has had issues with learning and actually remembering everything later when it comes to testing time. She told me she had fun with you too. Thanks!
Yasi helped me with a Research Proposal for one of my (undergraduate) Psychology courses. She was very patient, organized, and immediately set me at ease at a time when I was feeling very nervous about embarking on such a labor-intensive project. I believe that I earned an "A" on my paper because of Yasi's input and guidance. I HIGHLY recommend her for any undergraduate or graduate-level work, needless to say high school level and under.
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 love to teach Algebra I & II! My first time tutoring this subject was more than 12 years ago! A lot of people are scared of math, but like many things in life, it looks a lot scarier than it is! In fact, as my students become good at math, they start to enjoy the subject!
I help students master algebraic topics such as systems of equations, graphing, solving algebraic problems, factoring, etc.
Algebra II is one of my specialties & also one of my favorite subjects to teach. Given the density of the material, I find that I am often modeling important study habits such as organizing the information for students in a way that is simple and easy to learn. This helps students internalize (take in and make it an integral part of one's self) the organizing role I serve as a tutor.
Students will learn about polynomial functions, factoring, and graphing and solving quadratics (e.g completing the square, using the quadratic formula), etc.
I tutor high school chemistry.
I have planned lessons and taught math and English to classes of 10-15 students in 4-8th grade. I also have one-on-one experience with students K-6th.
This is one of my specialties. I have tutored both basic & honors/advanced geometry. Proofs are usually the most frustrating and challenging part of geometry for students. However, once students learn to organize, strategize, find patterns, and know the distinctions between the various definitions, theorems, and postulates, they will be better equipped to succeed. I can also help students with other concepts such as area, volume, surface area, circles, etc.
Prealgebra and algebra 1 often set the foundation for success in math. All of my students have moved on into advanced classes and/or are receiving A's in math.
I offer support with editing and organizing literature reviews, various intervention classes such as psychodynamic therapy, specifically object relations and intersubjectivity, and CBT, and courses in various other subjects such as cognitive psychology, psychopathology, clinical interviewing, etc. Clinically, I also have experience with eating disorders, trauma, PTSD, depression, anxiety spectrum disorders, and substance abuse.
