About Yuko

I have tutored for Professional Tutors of America for past 7 years teaching math, language arts and sciences for grades 1-12. I have a doctorate in medicine with courses in anatomy, physiology, neuroanatomy, biology and chemistry. Also I have private students with special needs (autism, mild-moderate, and special ed). I love tutoring children and especially instilling in them a love for learning, the adventure of learning. There is nothing more beautiful than to see a child get something, understand something for the first time. It is like a light goes on. It is why I tutor.

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.


I have tutored students ( some of whom had) ADD and ADHD for a LAUSD program for the last 6 years. I have also tutored private students with ADD and use focusing techniques (almost exclusively) and a lot of patience to bring the student back to the present task. The main point is to get the students mind to slow down and take in the moment, so they can actually SEE the problem and then to get them to remain on the topic. I also am qualified to tutor PDD students. I teach meditation and use focusing on the present moment from this to help students stay centered.


I have tutored a student with autism ( mild to moderate) for the past four years using focusing techniques ( I also teach meditation) and repetition. It also involves presenting the problem or seeing the problem in different perspectives until the student begins to see how to approach the problem. This also involved working with his IEP counselor. It requires a lot of patience, but also relating experiences the student can understand in life (visual and practical) and applying this to his school work.


I have tutored a private student with moderate level functioning autism for the last 4 years. I also teach meditation and have used focusing techniques in the tutoring as well as repetition (a lot of this) and ways of looking at the same problem from different angles. I also worked with his IEP counselor. Trust was an integral part of the tutoring process.


I have a postgraduate degree in the sciences and am able to tutor students in math through algebra I and II and geometry. I also tutor students for the SAT and ACT exams in math and the language arts (critical reading/ writing, spelling/vocabulary). I also tutor the sciences from grade 1-12 (basic high school chemistry, biology and AP biology, anatomy/physiology, physical science). I have tutored for 9 years and also worked with children with ADD, ADHD and mild to moderate autism. I love tutoring/teaching and feel deeply committed to helping improve the level of education in the US.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have tutored students for a tutoring company in grades 1-12 (a lot of them in grades 4-10) in math, the sciences and language arts. We used Houghton Mifflin and Buckle Down workbooks as well as some skills worksheets offered by the company. The students followed a learning plan that was determined by Scranton testing to assess their strengths and weaknesses. The students were tested before and after using the Scranton testing method to determine their progress.


Took the MCATs for medical school and did fairly well. I also had courses in Anatomy, Physiology, Embryology, Microbiology, Genetics, college Biology and Biochemistry. In medical school, I again took Anatomy and Physiology as well as Neurobiology.


Have worked with elementary children in using Buckle Down and Houghton Mifflin workbooks to learn grammar and reading skills and have used phonics to help pre-school children learn to read and pronounce words.

Special Needs

I have tutored students with ADD and ADHD for Professional Tutors of America for the past 6 years. I also have tutored a private student with mild autism for the past 4 years. I use focusing (as I also teach meditation) and repetition as well as looking at a problem from several different angles or approaches to help the student understand the problem or homework. Perhaps the most important quality needed in helping special needs students is patience and creating a unique way for them to see or learn the problem i.e. enter their world.
