I tutor because I enjoy seeing a student's progression over time. With the right tools, success is attainable for any student. I began tutoring my peers in high school and have been doing it ever since. I have always enjoyed helping others reach their goals. I began tutoring chemistry and math as those were the areas that I enjoyed the most. I was able to create alternative methods for my students to memorize material and understand concepts.
I can tutor K-6 in any subject areas. For grades 7-11 I specialize in Math, Chemistry, Physics, and Biology. My main focus is homework help and test preparation in accordance with the student's current curriculum. I mainly tutor one student at a time, but am able to tutor small groups if all students require assistance in the same area. I tutor in libraries, community centers, or school facilities in your neighborhood. I generally travel to Glendale, Burbank, Santa Monica, Miracle Mile, and Korea town.

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.
Hello parents and students! My name is Leona, and I have been tutoring students from K-6TH for about 4 years now. I started tutoring 1st-3rd Graders in Math. I know how important it is to know your multiplication and division and other fundamental skills. I focus on these skills and memorization techniques to aid the students not only with their current math assignments, but also with math in years to come. I am currently tutoring 5th and 6th Graders in pre-algebra problems. I was a science major in University, so besides math i can also tutor science for any grade.
I also enjoy helping students with their English. I have students right now that I am helping with their reading, vocabulary and grammar. For my K-6TH students, it is all about practice. We just need to spend the time practicing in whatever subject area they are struggling in to achieve success. For example with reading, the more we do it, the better we will get at it. I am very happy to spend the time needed with my students, whenever they require help.
