I have taught/tutored for 7 years. I was both a student and graduate assistant at CSULB where I attained a B.S. in Mathematics and a M.S. in Statistics.
I have experience tutoring in all mathematics subjects up to and including graduate-level material. I have a massive amount of experience in tutoring almost all of the subjects that I'm qualified to teach or tutor. Thus, it is very difficult to find another tutor who has as much experience in tutoring algebra, geometry, trigonometry, probability, statistics, precalculus, calculus, linear algebra, physics, and chemistry, along with SAT, ACT, ASVAB, GRE, and GMAT test preparation.
Based on my educational level and experience attained from working in industry, you will find that my hourly rate is very affordable compared to many other tutors. Accordingly, I am pleased to mention that last year I was ranked and awarded by WyzAnt to be in the top 50 nationally with respect to the number of hours worked. I am also one of the highest-rated tutors (I am currently ranked 3rd in all of So. California for the subjects that I tutor!).
My most salient skill, however, is presenting the theory and logic used for many proofs and equations in a simpler and easier to visualize alternative format that students can more easily understand.

Serious students, parents, and professors understand the "hit or miss" nature of tutors. I was referred to Glen through a friend who is taking a difficult graduate-level statistics course. She said without a doubt, he is better than any other statistics or math tutor in the area (and this lady is very bright so I trust her advice). Personally, I'm taking Calculus 2 over this summer and the pace is very fast. We covered 1.5 chapters in 4 days. We started the class with word problems which are difficult, even for the tutors at my college (some tutors won't even attempt certain problems). I was having a very hard time geometrically interpreting what integral calculus is supposed to describe. I was simply trying to plug numbers into formulas and hoping to get the right answer with a very vague understanding of what's actually going on. It took two hours, and Glen completely changed that. How? He didn't do the problems for me, he showed me how to approach them from a logical standpoint. On top of that, he went backwards and spotted some detrimental reasoning errors from the earlier sections of the chapter that I was incorrectly building a bad foundation upon. Without going into the nitty-gritty details of calculus, anyone who can spot errors in logic/reasoning (as opposed to computational errors) has a rare talent for mathematics. Hours later that night, I completely finished my entire test review correctly (by myself) without relying on formulas at all. (I hate merely memorizing formulas because it shows a lack of understanding and I knew that prior to Glen and I felt guilty about it.) I now feel confident that I will get an A on this next exam and I truly feel a new sense of empowerment and have a deeper, richer understanding of what I'm learning, as well as a greater appreciation for integral calculus (if you're unfamiliar, that's the more challenging branch of calculus). If you need a math tutor for any level, don't waste your time elsewhere. I know I won't. P.S. I emailed him at midnight and he came the very next day!Michael, 2 lessons with Glen
Teaches concepts and solution processes very efficiently
I got some lessons from Glen for Calculus 2 and he much helped me a lot with some problems that I was stuck on. He taught me different ways to solve problems that worked very well. He is extremely knowledgeable and it is very clear that he can handle any levels mathematics. Of course, the ability of teaching and knowledge can be independent factors. However, Glen is an expert in both fields and I highly recommend him to anyone that is looking for a strong boost in classes.Dean, 3 lessons with Glen
Glen I really want to thank you for all the Calc II tutoring you did with Chad. I appreciated you being available on such short notice and working around his school schedule. I am happy to report that Chad passed his Calc II class something that seemed out of reach at times. Chad said he learned more in his sessions with you than he did in class. Thanks again!!Shareen, 6 lessons with Glen
Great teacher, has strong knowledge in mathematics and was really helpful in quickly sorting my problems. He helped me understand a wide range of questions in very reasonable amount of time.Siddharth, 2 lessons with Glen
Glen is great!
Mr Glen is one of the few professionals I have seen who just walked into a tricky situation and brought in his knowledge, skills and a great attitude to make a difference which turned things around for the better. In our case that's exactly what happened. Thank you Mr Glen and I will be happy to make any referrals for you.Captain, 21 lessons with Glen
knowledgeable and patient tutor
Glen has been tutoring my kid for 2.5 years since 10th grade Subjects include AP Statistics, Math Analysis and Calculus, AP Calculus AB, and AP Physics. I like Glen is because he is knowledgeable so he could teach many subjects and kids can ask him the Math and Physics questions if they happen to have during the same scheduled time. He is patient with kids and responsible to parents. He is also diligent and flexible in working tutor time with you, which is a great help when kid's schedule is tight. I like his after-lesson reports when submitting the tutor hours, and parents could know what he was teaching /covering in the class. So I could follow it up with my kid when necessary. The only inconvenient thing is that he does not have a cell phone, so you have to rely on email communication with him. However, it is not a big issue to me. I I strongly recommend Glen to anyone who needs help in Math, Statistics, and Physics.Emily, 188 lessons with Glen
Great tutor! Awesome job in helping me understand math concepts, I would highly recommend Glen if you ever need help in math!Amanda, 1 lesson with Glen
BEST TUTOR EVER
Glen has been tutoring me for College level Biostastics and he is the best tutor I have ever had. I missed three weeks of school and he got me caught up in 2 days. He is a statistics wizard and I wish I had found him earlier. I see lots of As in my future :)Sydney, 5 lessons with Glen
Glen is very knowledgeable and is able to communicate abstract and difficult ideas with clarity. He is patient and kind, and has helped my son raise his Trig grade significantly. Excellent tutor. Highly recommend.Holly, 37 lessons with Glen
Glen is extremely professional and helpful!
Glen is an excellent tutor and I highly recommend him. He helped both of my sons pass their college statistics classes (while they were still in high school even). He was their choice of tutors. We highly recommend him.Kerry, 6 lessons with Glen
