About Evan

I performed very well in high school as a student with exceptional grades and a 32 ACT/2070 SAT. I was accepted into almost all of the colleges I applied to including UCSB, UCSD, Chapman etc... For financial reasons I chose to attend Saddleback instead and have now transferred to UCI .

I am currently studying cognitive science under the Department of Psychology at UCI. Cognitive Science is my passion! It is basically the study of cognition (thinking). It uses nueroscience to understand how the brain learns and remembers, and much more. For more on cognitive science see: http://www.cogsci.uci.edu/ and http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cognitive_science

Math has always been my best subject and my tutoring career started out just as me helping friends in math but slowly expanded to my full-time job as more and more people asked for my help. I began to tutor in other subjects as well and now also work with students on test preparation (ACT, SAT, GED...) Not only do I know these subjects very well, but my studies have helped me to be able to analyze each student individually in order to understand how they best learn and remember concepts.

With 5+ years of experience, I am comfortable catering to all types of learning styles even special needs and also can quickly recognize any gaps the student has (many students have them often due to poor teachers at a young age). I know I can help any student and make them realize learning isn't so bad after all! Please give me a call.

Thank you,
Evan C.

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.

Algebra 1

With 7+ years experience in tutoring algebra as well as standardized test preparation (ACT/SAT etc) helping clients master algebra has been one of my main priorities. Students with weak algebra inevitability struggle in later maths and ideally helping students master algebra leaves them in a situation where they wont require a tutor for later maths.
As with all subjects, I also focus on note-taking, studying strategy, and test-taking strategy. My current studies in the cognitive sciences allow me to incorporate the current scientific body of knowledge on human learning, memory, and decision-making into these strategies.

Professional, patient, and a great tutor — I hired Evan to help my son catch up on geometry. My son is sick with mono, so he is two months behind in assignments. Oh boy, I was in a total panic trying to get him caught up. I knew I needed a tutor fast. Evan always shows up on time, is professional in dress and manners, patient and KNOWS HOW to explain a concept to the student. He makes them think about what they already know and apply it ...
