About Tyler

With over 15 years of tutoring experience and having graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Applied Mathematics from UCLA, I am among the most qualified math tutors available. I have been tutoring students in everything from Pre-Algebra through Calculus and Statistics. I enjoy the subtleties of mathematics and find it greatly fulfilling when I see my students gain a greater insight into the subject's many, many intricacies. I am well aware that different students learn math differently, and so I adapt my teaching style to match the needs of each individual student. I pride myself on providing a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere for my students. In this environment, they attain greater comprehension immediately and measurable results quickly.

One of my advantages as a tutor is my love for many things outside the world of mathematics. I do improv comedy, I enjoy archery and playing pool, I've taken several years of professional acting classes in Hollywood, I've had many years of martial arts training, I watch a lot of movies, and I enjoy reading as well. I am able to bring these outside experiences into the learning space to relate to my students and connect on a deeper level.

If you want to do online tutoring, great! Whether you are a student in Los Angeles, Lafayette, or London, it is important to me that your experience be as seamless as possible. To make sure of this, I have a portable wifi hotspot and an unlimited data plan with Verizon. This enables me to do online tutoring with an excellent and dependable connection from pretty much anywhere on a moment's notice (if I'm not already in the middle of another tutoring session, of course!). Additonally, This mobile access also allows for quick-fix sessions. Need to meet online for 30 minutes? No problem.

If you are looking for easy access to a tutor with mastery of the subject along with a friendly and engaging personality, contact me today!

Test Preparation:
ACT Math,
SAT Math

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 have taught classes in ACT math and have helped my students achieve their academic goals. Similar to SAT Math, my strategy for students is about thoroughly re-familiarizing students with all the math they learned over the past several years. Typically, we will go through an ACT book of problems and do several exercises together, inspiring dozens of those "Oh yeah!" moments. After each lesson, the student gets stronger in the material, and can feel it.

I have been happily tutoring for over 15 years, and so I have learned to relate mathematical concepts to a wide variety of students. As for my educational background, I graduated Magna Cum Laude from UCLA with a degree in Applied Mathematics.

Algebra 1

I focus on keeping the strategies simple in algebra. Many strategies cross over to several different kinds of problems. Once these patterns for strategies are learned, new problems don't seem as mysterious.

Algebra 2

As with all the math subjects I tutor, I've tutored Algebra 2 a lot. Having a degree in Applied Mathematics from UCLA, I have a strong grasp of the wide array of topics they introduce in Algebra 2, from higher order polynomials to matrices; from exponents to simplifying radicals. Often times, Algebra 2 can be an overwhelming subject since it introduces so many new, seemingly-unrelated topics. I work with students to show how all this work ties together.

Calculus

In Calculus, new concepts are introduced that require higher levels of abstract thinking. I work with students to deconstruct the more complex ideas into simpler, understandable pieces. From limits, to derivatives, to integrals, to refreshing necessary skills from earlier math, I have been working with students in this subject for years with great success.

As for my educational qualifications, I have a degree from UCLA in Applied Mathematics, graduating Magna Cum Laude. This training has given me a rock-solid foundation in all the math subjects I teach.

Geometry

I work with the students to make sure they see how all the theorems, postulates, and corollaries tie together, making the subject less about a bunch of random facts to memorize. This makes Geometry more cohesive, understandable, enjoyable, and easy to learn.

Prealgebra

Prealgebra introduces and expands upon a lot of concepts. Everything from exponents to variables, this information can be a bit unwieldy at first. I focus on breaking down the concepts to smaller pieces to make them easy to absorb.

Precalculus

Precalculus brings together several years worth of mathematical training and then adds even more. Greater mastery of rational functions and trigonometry is required, and then comes matrices and complex systems of equations. I am able to alert students of the core concepts that they need to know to succeed, making a massive heap of information more manageable and easy to understand.

SAT Math

My approach with SAT math is a combination of clarification, refreshment, and saturation. The SAT's, cover a wide breadth of mathematical knowledge. I help to fill in the gaps that students have in any of the subjects. Along with reeducating students in the subjects, I strongly encourage a lot of practice with SAT questions; familiarity with the style of questions that can appear on the test will give students a great advantage when they finally approach the exam.

Statistics

I assist students by showing the students where information can generally be found and what clues they should look for. Whether their class allows the use of a graphing calculator, a scientific calculator, or simply a basic calculator, I am prepared to guide students to get the most out of their technology.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry is wonderfully intricate material containing a wide variety of topics such as: triangles, similar triangles right triangles, special triangles, not-so-special triangles, more triangles, other triangles, a cute triangle (as long as it's not being obtuse), an extra helping of triangles and triangle pi. (I would like to formally apologize for any injuries caused by those fantastic puns. Please let me know when there's any sine of improvement....)

Trigonometry is a subject that can truly make a student go bonkers.

Luckily, trigonometry is so focused on triangles, much of the information is becomes tightly interrelated. With me, students learn the value of drawing triangles. In so doing, solutions to problems become much more attainable and certain.

I have been tutoring for over 15 years. As for my educational background, I graduated Magna Cum Laude from UCLA with a Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Mathematics.

Excellent higher level math tutor!

Tyler has been helping me with calculus over the past two years and I could not be more pleased with the experience! I have tried countless other tutors and none of them made calculus as simple and interesting as Tyler. He is able to show me the easiest way to approach any problem with as little memorization as possible, and makes sure that you truly understand the material. I highly recommend him
