Hello, my name is Ovid M. and I am an experienced tutor of 9+ years for college, high school and middle school students in a variety of subjects. My specialties include math, English, econ, and test prep. I am also fluent in Mandarin Chinese.

I have worked at schools in both USA and abroad, including Los Angeles Unified School District. I have an Masters of Arts in Teaching from University of Southern California. My undergrad is in Finance and Economics from Arkansas. I am also a U. S. Army veteran and during my service, I taught land navigation courses.

My passion for education extends beyond the classroom and tutoring sessions as I am always trying to learn more and share knowledge. I always teach and encourage students to think freely and critically rather than just pure memorization. I enjoy empowering students with proper academic tools so they can continuously better themselves.

History

American History,

American History

History tends to repeat itself. Learning American history is very important especially for Americans as it is part of our heritage. My tutoring experiences in American history include both remembering what happened and why it happened. The "why" is what is needed to succeed in AP history courses while the "what" can earn a lot of points in trivia tournaments.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Algebra 1 is a subject that I have tutored a lot. It is a step up from basic arithmetic and some students enjoy having extra help in the subject to help them learn better. Algebra 1 is important as it is the gateway to more advance math courses.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 expands on algebra 1 and it usually involves learning logs, exponentials, imaginary numbers, etc. Algebra 2 is very important as a lot of it are used in trigonometry, calculus, and statistics. Some students may feel the jump between Algebra 1 and 2 is quite large and I will help the student review the material already covered and show them how it relates to the new material in algebra 2.
Calculus,

Calculus

Calculus is the study of rates of change and may seem quite confusing. In high school, most calculus courses offered are AP level and can be a significant jump from previous math courses. I have taken multiple calculus classes and have a good understanding of the subject. Most importantly, my patience and teaching skills allows the student to get the most out of tutoring.
Geometry,

Geometry

Geometry is a fun subject as it deals with different shapes. This is a subject that requires some knowledge of algebra. I am well versed in geometry and I can help explain the properties of circles, triangles, other shapes, and of course proofs.

Patient and knowledgeable!

Helped my son with Integrated math 2 class for an up coming test. I was looking for someone to tutor him the last minute,called few people and he was the first available to respond right away.He took time to really explained everything that my son was having hard time and went over every single lessons that he's having problems. We will definitely hire him again for a regular tutoring schedule to improve my son's grade in school.

Ronnah, 8 lessons with Ovid

Great tutor!

My grandson enjoys his sessions with Ovid, and comes out of every session with a very positive, confident attitude. Ovid is very responsive and thorough, and makes good use of the time. I appreciate that he has really tried to accommodate the hours we've requested.

Felicia, 6 lessons with Ovid

Passion for teaching.

Ovid is awesome! Came into the tutoring session with great energy and was very engaging as he was tutoring. It's easy to tell there is a true passion as he was helping me with my homework.

David, 1 lesson with Ovid

Great tutor.

Ovid was very helpful in explaining concepts covered in my university-level microeconomics class. His schedule was flexible and I was able to get last-minute help whenever I needed. He is very patient and comes prepared to discuss the lesson topics on short notice. A great tutor all around!

Jessie, 3 lessons with Ovid

Outstanding Tutor! Very Patient And Explains Very Clearly!

Ovid is outstanding! He is very patient and explains the math problems very clearly. I hired him to tutor my son who is in 9th grade Algebra 2 Honors who unfortunately has a bad teacher. Ovid has tutored him twice and my son is feeling more confident. We will continue to work with Ovid until our son brings up his grade.
