I have been teaching middle school prealgebra and algebra in one of the best private schools in the Los Angeles area. I have worked well with many types of students, those who are struggling with math from whom I frequently hear "for the first time in my life I get it" and those students who love challenges, as my students have gotten into the best high schools in the area (Loyola, Harvard-Westlake, Notre Dame, Campbell Hall). They have gotten into honors classes in those schools. I have developed great relationships with parents and students and love teaching.
I specialize in middle school prealgebra and algebra, but also have many years of experience preparing students for the HSPT and ISEE High School Entrance Exams. I have also taught middle school life, Earth, and physical science and am qualified to tutor students in those areas. I have taught all elementary subjects and realize the foundation for math and all subject areas begins in those grades, and it is fundamental that students know the basics before they enter middle school.
I desire to challenge the students I tutor to believe in themselves and in their abilities to learn. I also know that when students build confidence in themselves in academic areas, it often produces results in other areas of the students life.
I work with students within a 10 mile radius of Seal Beach, and up to 20 miles under certain conditions. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you to 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.
I have taught at a private school for 25 years. When the students leave that school they go to many private high schools in the area. In order to get into those schools they are required to take the HSPT, ISEE or the COOP test. I have tutored middle school students on those tests for 20 years, and they have gotten into the best private schools in the area.
I have taught grade 4 for 13 years, and I have taught grades 5-6 for 5 years. In addition to that I have taught Middle School for 20 years so I know what students need to know when they leave Elementary school. In addition to that I have also tutored elementary students for 25 years.
