About Spencer

I am a pre-med graduate student at Loyola Marymount University who loves ALL subjects and has a general passion for learning. I spent two semesters as a science tutor helping dozens of students, and 15 months as a teacher for religious education, teaching teachers how to teach. There is nothing more rewarding to me than that moment when I see the light bulb go on in the minds of those I teach. I find that I have a natural talent for putting myself in the shoes of others to see things from their perspective. This has been a priceless skill for me as I strive to help my students gain a deep understanding of their subject of study. I strive to not only prepare students to ace tests and get good grades, but to develop study habits and a love-of-learning attitude that will help them throughout life.

With a BA in Middle East Studies/Arabic, a Minor in Physics, and experience as a pre-med student, it's easy to see that I am not afraid of any subject. I specialize in Arabic, Middle Eastern History and Politics, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, and any level of math from Pre-algebra to Calculus. I will help you prepare for all sections of the SAT, ACT, and GRE. I have written many "A" essays and have experience doing several in-depth individual and group research projects.

Here is my schedule for this semester:

Mondays after 3PM
Tuesdays after 6PM
Wednesdays after 6PM
Thursdays after 12PM
Fridays after 11AM
Saturdays free all day

I am always commuting between Santa Clarita and LAX and will happily travel anywhere in those areas. Contact me for more information.

I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

Arabic

I have a BA in Middle East Studies/Arabic. I took 3.5 years of Arabic classes including Modern Standard Arabic, Egyptian Arabic, and Levantine Arabic. In Fall of 2014 I lived in Amman, Jordan and took Arabic courses at Qasid Institute. At the end of my study abroad I scored an Advanced-Mid score on the Oral Proficiency Interview, the standard test issued by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages.

Chemistry

I have taken three semesters of college level chemistry.
