About Arami

Hi! My name is Arami, and I have thirteen years of experience teaching students grades 9 through 12 as well as years of experience preparing students for the SAT and ACT. I know the kind of advantage that comes with being highly prepared for these kinds of standardized tests: when I was in high school, I earned a score on the PSAT that placed me in the top 2.5% nationwide and enabled me to earn a National Merit Scholarship to study neuroscience at USC. After graduating with honors, I earned my MS in biotechnology at Johns Hopkins University and have been teaching high school in the years since. I now teach biology and Advanced Placement biology at a private school in Santa Monica.

When I was in high school, I earned a perfect score on the math section of the SAT. I also earned a perfect score on the math SAT subject test. What sets me apart from other highly qualified tutors, however, is that I have also taught a 9th grade algebra class. I know the algebra and pre-algebra skills and concepts that students struggle with the most. I also know the tools, resources, and ways of thinking that best enable students to master the math concepts that they may not have mastered in their own math classes at school.

The science portion of the ACT measures students' quantitative reasoning and analysis skills within the context of four science content areas: biology, chemistry, earth science and physics. Having taught an integrated science course for nine years that introduces high school students to these four disciplines of science, I am uniquely qualified to prepare students who may not have much familiarity with one or more of these science content areas from their own high school classes. Moreover, as an Advanced Placement biology teacher, I am particularly skilled at building up students' quantitative reasoning and scientific analysis abilities, since these are the skills that are most crucial to succeeding on the Advanced Placement biology exam.

I have excellent writing and grammar obtained from years of voracious reading that earned me perfect or near-perfect English, reading comprehension, and grammar scores on the ACT, SAT, and SAT subject tests. I spent four years tutoring a high school student in Seoul, Korea via Skype in reading and writing in English and guiding her in constructing and editing her college application essays. And as a science teacher, I regularly require my students to develop their reading comprehension skills so that they can successfully comb through passages of text.

While I am a highly educated, fully certified teacher with a deep understanding of how students learn that is born from years of experience in the classroom, the one thing that makes me good at my job is my desire to collaborate and my willingness to learn. At the Santa Monica private school where I teach, I have excellent relationships with teachers in other subject areas: math, English, science. I am always eager to learn from them, and they are more than happy to share what they know and offer the resources and materials that have worked best with their own students. For this reason, I bring with me the best practices that I have gleaned from expert teachers over many years, and my students are the ones who benefit. Please feel free to contact me; I would love to speak with you about your unique needs and goals!

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.
