About Vivian

My area of expertise is SAT and ACT coaching. I have tutored in these areas, in the English portion, both locally as well as internationally via Skype, and have taught the strategies necessary to succeed. Most of my students have raised their scores considerably. Through a Cal Lutheran University program, I have assisted students with their college entrance essays and have also helped many students receive scholarships. In addition to this, I am a published author and a produced screenwriter.

Over the years, I have taught for LAUD (E.S.L.), in the Oak Park School District, worked in Special Education, and have been the Director of a local tutoring center. I have tutored privately for many years as well.

I've developed great relationships with my students (K-12) and believe in using humor and thinking "outside the box" to get my points across.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught ESL at Pierce College, for L.A. Unified, and privately. I am also a published author.

SAT Writing

I was formerly the director of a tutoring center. I coach SAT students in reading composition and writing. I also assist with college application essays.
