About Sylvia

Hi! I have many years of tutoring experience for all grade levels. The bad news is that most students struggle with Math. The good news is that, not only is it my favorite subject but I also have a teaching credential in Math that allows me to teach Math for grades K-12!

My students find me approachable and feel comfortable to ask me questions on their homework. I also have patience with students and I take my time explaining concepts to them. I'm happy to say that I have helped many in the past improve their grades and I plan on continuing to do so as much as I can.

I have also been a teacher in the past. I taught elementary and middle school for a couple of years, and high school for 6 years. I love to teach, but I am equally passionate about tutoring. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to work with students on a one-on-one basis because they learn more that way. I have various tutoring methods which include visual aids, using acronyms, repetition, and teaching study strategies. Each student learns differently, so I try to accommodate each individually.

I am open to do online tutoring if a student is comfortable with that. Online tutoring allows for more flexibility in time and location. Also, I only charge $35/hr. if I tutor a student online as opposed to in-person. As far as my skills, I am bilingual in English and Armenian, and my communication is strong. I am willing to speak in my native language (Armenian) but I am also very comfortable working with diverse students, which I have been doing since the beginning. I hope to meet you soon!

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.

Algebra 1

I am qualified to tutor Algebra 1 because not only do I have years of experience doing so but I also have a teaching credential in Math.

Algebra 2

I am qualified to tutor Algebra 2 because I have taught this subject to high school students in the past. Also I have passed the CSET in Math which qualifies me to teach Algebra 2.

CBEST

I am qualified to tutor in the subject of CBEST because I, myself, have taken it and have passed. Also, I have a teaching credential in multiple subjects as well as a credential in Math. Therefore I feel I can handle tutoring students in the CBEST.

Precalculus

I have a Teaching credential, which includes Precalculus.
