University of California, San Diego (Cognitive Science)
As a first-generation college student, I know all too well the struggle of high school, especially with the ACT, SAT and college admissions, and how stressful it can be to go about this alone. Further, as a current student at one of the nation's top public universities, UCSD, I feel I really have the drive and motivation to help other students.
In the past, I have provided tutoring in English, simple/basic Algebra, Precalculus, and Trigonometry. This is in addition to the advising I provided high school seniors during the college admissions process (specifically in regards to the UC & CSU system, but I do have a knowledge of the Common App), as well as somewhat less-intensive advising to high school juniors. I am also currently completing coursework in regards to Psychology, Neuroscience, Cognitive Science, Computer Science, with many others to come.
Admittedly, I am a first-time tutor, and as such I am still testing the waters here. I have made my hourly rate as low as possible and am fairly flexible in scheduling from August 10th - September 10th. I may also be reached for tutoring after September 10th, but this would be conducted via Skype because I will be back in San Diego for classes. Cancellation policy has been set to 6 hours prior to a session. I am also prepared to travel; my travel radius can be viewed on the sidebar to the right.
This is admittedly not my strongest field, but I am able to instruct others in precalculus and trigonometry reasonably well. Basic math is of course well within my capabilities.
As a Cognitive Science major I have done fairly extensive coursework in regards to the workings of the mind, and have also conducted research in this field. I can outline the AP Psychology coursework fairly well, and also have some knowledge beyond that.
English is my native language, so I can fluently speak and write. I have passed all my writing and/or English classes with a B or above since the beginning of high school. I am also comfortable speaking in front of people and am capable of instructing others in this aspect as well.
Thanks for looking, and I look forward to helping you succeed!

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.
