With over 15 yrs experience, I have a solid background in tutoring students from elementary math to college algebra. I also have an extensive tutoring background in a variety of subjects, including but not limited to Language Arts and Biology as well as Math. A sample of my experience consists of helping students write essays, interpret bio-scientific concepts, and solve quadratic equations. My specialized area is math with age groups varying from preschool to college level. I have experience working with elementary age students. I have also tutored middle and high school students in pre-algebra & algebra and college students in college level algebra. Hands on experience allowed me to become skilled at how to best approach each student, with consideration to their proficiency in that subject or assignment.

I am passionate about helping students improve in their academic goals. I pride myself on teaching students how to use their time and resources effectively while building their confidence with their approach to assignments, homework and test-taking skills. I appreciate the opportunity and privilege of successfully tutoring a student and making a positive difference in their immediate and future studies.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a Bachelor's degree from USC. My tutoring experience began at an Elementary Magnet School while I attended USC in Los Angeles. I have tutored on both a volunteer and paid basis for over 15 years.
I attend courses annually to stay current with the latest teaching criteria and techniques for school age children. My most recent tutoring experiences are with a tutoring agency, AB Tutoring, where I provide in-home one-on-one tutoring for children in 2nd, 3rd, 5th and 6th grades.
I accommodate each student by providing a comprehensive curriculum ranging from English, Science, Math, Social Studies, and History based on the student's needs & learning style. After evaluating, I customize my teaching concepts to effectively administer each tutoring session.
I encourage and embrace respectful, trusting and caring relationships with students and parents by way of open and honest two-way communication.

Prealgebra

I am a USC graduate, and loves to teach all levels of Algebra!
