About Elijah

I am a college student looking to tutor people in Math and other subjects as well. I love to help people understand subjects and even try and make them enjoy it.

I attended College of the Desert in Palm Desert for two years, and received my associates in mathematics. I am now a student at the University of California, Riverside, majoring in Computer Science. I have a large amount of experience tutoring STEM subjects and have helped students of all ages. As well as my academic achievements, I have real life experience in the engineering industry, with my most notable accomplishment being an internship for NASA at the Kennedy Space Center.

As a student myself, I know that being lectured at is not how a struggling student succeeds. Tutoring from a student's perspective will not only help with learning a subject, but will set students up for future success in academics.

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.

Excellent Tutor

In addition to the fact that Elijah was on time and ready to jump right in, I was most impressed by his ability to make a person listen, think, then perform. This is a young man who has had no college training in education. There aren't very many tenured teachers who have that natural ability. This was our first session and, although we were scheduled for one hour, Elijah didn't stop until my gran
