About AJ

As a lifelong learner, I am very driven to help others achieve their goals in the classroom. I've been a high school and college math tutor for 8 years, and worked for UCLA to teach upper division linear algebra. I do not aim to simply get my students to pass, but truly help them understand the material so they are not simply regurgitating information.

I specialize in tutoring Pre-Calculus, Calculus I/II/III, any lower division math/stats course (linear algebra, discrete, diff eq's, etc.), and many upper division math/stats courses as well. I also offer SAT, ACT, GRE general math tutoring.

As far as qualifications, I have a BS from UCLA in Applied Math/Economics, and am currently working a Masters degree in Biostatistics at SDSU. I scored an 800 on SAT Math and a 167/170 quantitative score on the new GRE, as well as 5's on AP Calc AB/BC and AP Physics.

I care deeply about my students' successes, and hold myself to a very high standard with regards to tutoring. I have full moneyback guarantee if you're not satisfied with your experience.

Thank you for your interest, and I look forward to speaking with you soon. Have a great day.

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.

Linear Algebra

I taught linear algebra for a year at UCLA AAP. I received an A+ in upper division linear algebra at UCLA. I use it frequently in statistics/economics courses.

AJ's a cool Tutor — My High School sophomore has been working with AJ for 3 months now. She has the misfortune of a sub par math teacher this year for pre calculus. At the first quarter her grade was barely a C and she was feeling lost. With AJ's help she has a solid A, but more importantly she understands the concepts and doesn't hate it. AJ's style is very low key and that is cool for a teenager. Thank you! ...
