About Anthony

Seeing a student succeed is the best part about being a tutor. I have helped many students earn higher grades and better test scores than they ever thought possible. My method of teaching is geared towards complete comprehension and mastery of a topic; I will ensure that your student can work out test problems and employ critical thinking skills on their own. Every student has the potential to succeed in any subject; I am only here to fill in the gaps of knowledge and show them that learning can be both fun and rewarding.

I graduated from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona (better know as Cal Poly) with cum laude honors in 2012 with a Bachelor's Degree in Civil Engineering. I began my formal tutoring career in 2009 at an after-school tutoring center in Walnut, CA. Over the years, I have worked with a number of students in a wide variety of subjects including: math, science, reading, writing, literature, history, and language learning. I am currently working full-time as an Assistant Engineer in Riverside.

While I primarily tutor in the subjects of math and science, I also have experience as a tutor in other subjects (I was one class shy of a Minor in History...). I love to teach, but I also love to learn; I try to instill a love of life-long learning in every student that I tutor.

If you are interested in SAT Prep, I taught a 4-Week SAT Preparation Course during Summer 2016 at the Claremont Colleges. The course reviewed concepts for all sections of the NEW SAT. I developed a study program for my students that focused on the core SAT material while also introducing tips, tricks, techniques and test-taking strategies that improved my students' comfort level and confidence for the exam. I will provide these same materials to your student for one-on-one SAT Preparation, including two free workbooks. Your student will receive the help and instruction that he or she needs to excel on the new SAT exam!

Tutoring spaces are limited, so contact me today to set up an initial meeting with you and your student. I look forward to helping your student succeed!

Thank you!

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.

Algebra 1

As a practicing Civil Engineer, I use math daily at work. I have also tutored in math at all levels since 2009.

Algebra 2

As a practicing Civil Engineer, I use math daily at work. I have also tutored in math at all levels since 2009.

Civil Engineering

I received a B.S. in Civil Engineering with an emphasis in Environmental Engineering from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona in June 2012. I graduated with cum laude honors.

Cooking

I had the pleasure of living in Italy for two years. During those two years, I learned to love the Mediterranean way of life, from their laid-back nature to their eclectic style of architecture. Most of all, I fell (more) in love with their food; simple, fresh, and full of flavor.

I do not profess to be the best cook in the world, but I do know a thing or two about how to prepare authentic Mediterranean food. I would love to teach you a few signature dishes that use only fresh, nutritious ingredients. You will be cooking like an Italian in no time!

Geography

I have always had a fascination for geography. I received an "A" grade in Cultural Geography and Geography of California at Cal Poly Pomona. I also participated in Geography Bee competitions in grade school.

Italian

I lived in Italy from November 2005 to December 2007. I learned from native Italians as I became immersed in both their language and culture.

Precalculus

As a practicing Civil Engineer, I use math daily at work. I have also tutored in math at all levels since 2009.
