University of California Irvine (UCI) (Computer Engineering)
I am currently a fourth year student at UCI, studying Computer Science and Computer Engineering. I have over five years of experience privately tutoring. I have primarily tutored Physics, Math, SAT/ACT preparation, and general study skills. My primary goals while tutoring are to help students become more confident with their academic abilities and understanding of subjects. I enjoy helping students to improve their conceptual comprehension of topics and the topics and the thought process they use to analyze problems, as I feel these skills are the most beneficial - both with respect to the current topic and across all academic fields.
I have tutored students in grades three through 12, as well as various university courses. I've taken all of the AP classes that I tutor students for and scored well on both the ACT and SAT.

Shared sessions with two students being tutored in the same subject : $75 an hour, instead of $100 Students who arrange to be tutored sequentially at the same location: $40 each, instead of $50
Patient and knowledgeable. Willing to go back and explain the correct method(s) for solving/ targeting a solution to the problem. Very punctual and courteous. Was able to hone in on strengths and weaknesses easily.
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 have experience tutoring test preparation skills (increasing confidence and ability, and good habits to maintain these) and have tutored each of the ACT subjects individually as well. I scored well on the exam and enjoy helping students to improve their own scores. When tutoring, I focus first on general study skills (practicing these with questions from the subjects the student wants to improve most), before moving onto studying each subject.
I earned a near perfect reading-comprehension score on the SAT (780) and a perfect reading score on the ACT (36), and have tutored reading comprehension for three years. I primarily focus on skills and techniques to improve one's ability to interpret passages and to improve the score reflected on applicable tests.
experience privately tutoring multiple students in algebra 1 and the surroundings maths (geometry, algebra 2, trig). I have been tutoring algebra for over 5 years to various grade levels and students with varying proficiency and confidence levels.
I have four+ years experience tutoring algebra 2, as well as experience with Prealgebra and Algebra 1 which I find are very useful to review to help solidify a students understanding of Algebra 2.
I have tutored high school and college level calculus for three years, as well as precalculus, algebra, and physics - all of which I've found are useful in helping a student strengthen their calculus skills.
I have a year of experience privately tutoring elementary school math, english, and science, in addition to many volunteer hours as a teacher's aid for elementary school teachers. I have tutored students in grades 3 through 10 and am comfortable tutoring all levels of math, science, and english in elementary school.
5 years of experience tutoring math and science to students in elementary and middle school. I've tutored 5 students in elementary school, in grades 3-6, and 3 of these students I tutored in math. I am very comfortable working with younger students and have experience keeping their focus on the subject during a session and helping to develop their comprehension.
I have over four years of experience tutoring Physics, and have tutored students at a standard high school level, in AP Physics classes, and at a university level. I have tutored the subject to students with and without a strong base established in Calculus and other maths.
I have been a volunteer pre-algebra tutor for a year at an after school program for middle school students and I have also privately tutored 5 students.
I have studied python as part of my degree requirements, and have taken 4 courses on the subject. I have been using Python for the past three years. I frequently tutored peers in my class while taking the course, and continued to help friends, classmates, and teammates who took the course in following years.
I've tutored reading comprehension skills to elementary and junior high students and have seen significant improvement in their reading speed, confidence, and comprehensive abilities.
I have been tutoring for 5 years in beginning French, all levels of Math, high school and university physics, and most junior high and elementary school subjects. I earned a near perfect reading comprehension score on the SAT (780) and can help students improve their own comprehension of textbooks or other reading material. I earned straight A's in 5 AP classes in high school and have very strong personal study skills which I look forward to sharing with others to help them improve their own study habits.
