About Polly

Growing up asking for help or tutoring from teachers was kinda of intimidating for me. I found it easier and less intimidating when it was someone around my age group. I recently graduated with a Chemistry BS Degree at California State University of Long Beach. Throughout my school years, my colleagues and classmates always told me that I was great at explaining the problem in a simpler way for them to understand, and that I should try and become a tutor. Well, here I am! Ready to help students improve their grades or test scores or just simply to understand the topic better. I look forward from hearing from you and helping you with your studies!

For high school students, I took AP CHEM at earned a score of a 4 and AP CALCULUS AB (1) with a 3. Along with my chemistry degree, I have taken up to Calculus 3 in college.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT Math

In my college career, I have completed math courses up to Calculus 3. I can help students interpret and understand ACT math questions in a simpler form.

ACT Science

I am majoring in Chemistry and a pre-pharm student. I have a strong grasp of these science topics and would be able to explain and help students interpret the questions.

Algebra 1

I have completed up to Calculus 3 in my college career.

Algebra 2

I have completed up to Calculus 3 in my college career.

Chemistry

I'm majoring in Chemistry at Cal State Long Beach.

Geometry

I took Geometry in high school and passed with an A. Currently in my college career, I have finished math courses up to Calculus 3.

Prealgebra

Most students struggle with word problems throughout math courses. Prealgebra consists of multiple word problems which makes the course intimidating. I discovered a method to make word problems easier by breaking them to simpler terms. I have completed up to Calculus 3 in my college career.

Precalculus

Precalculus was a course required in order for me to advance to Calculus 1. I passed this course and took the AP Calculus 1 Exam in high school and passed the exam.

SAT Math

SAT Math, for most students, sounds intimidating, but after taking the test and advancing further in my math courses in college, I realized the SAT math questions asked are only tried to trick you. I can help students interpret and understand what the question is asking in a simpler version. I have completed up to Calculus 3 in my college career.

Trigonometry

I have completed up to Calculus 3 in my college career and passed Trigonometry in high school with an A.

Deciding to ask Polly to tutor has been a great benefit to me. I have never been the sort of person whom Math comes easy too. However after a tutoring session with her, there were things that were explained to me that I ever really understood, and she explained them in a way that was easy for me to understand. That was exactly what I was looking for in a tutor. The very next day after our fi
