About Sam

Elementary math through Calculus, ASVAB, SAT, ACT, Cbest and more, teaching is my calling. With more than 20 years of experience, I am the best. I have never had a student fail. The keys are to select the right tutor and to start immediately. I take a student who is very shaky in math and teach him/her how to succeed with confidence and POWER. Do not trust yours or your child's future with anyone but the best. I have a background check on file and several reference available upon request. Please call or email me and I can give you a full rundown of my program.

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Math from UCSD, a Master's Degree in Education from SDSU and a Math Teaching Credential. Tutoring is an honorable profession. I intend to uphold that honor. Most tutors have the best of intention yet simply end up solving problems and collecting checks. Instead, I prefer to focus on a student's entire skill set (study skills, problem solving techniques, basic skills, etc). At worst, I improve grades. At best, I improve students' self esteem, helping them to help others.

Thank you,
Sammie W.

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 am fully qualified for the CBEST because I successfully passed the CBEST to become a middle school math teacher. I have a bachelors in applied math. And I have successfully tutored students in CBEST and other more difficult tests. Also, I am a successful tutor with more than 15 years of experience.
