Your tutor search ends here! I have been successfully tutoring for over 10 years with more than 2,000 WyzAnt hours and almost 1,000 five star ratings. I have helped students transform their grades from F's to A's. It has been a very rewarding experience, since my students get to understand the subject a lot better as well as improve their grades. I love working with students of all ages and teaching the many subjects I know. My specialties are math, science, and standardized testing. I am very patient and friendly. I am also able to explain an idea in many different ways. Many students tell me that I can explain concepts much better than their teachers. I am an EXPERT with standardized math testing (PSAT, SAT, ACT, ASVAB, TEAS, GED, etc.) and I show my students how to achieve a PERFECT score. Imagine how many golden opportunities and doors this can open up in terms of college admissions and scholarships! Many of my previous students have moved on to attending prestigious colleges. I also have a lot of experience with the Common Core (Integrated Math) curriculum as well.

I graduated with honors at UCLA with a BS in chemical engineering. I can definitely tailor the tutoring session to your specific needs. Please check out the extensive list of the subjects that I am certified to tutor and my positive reviews. My ultimate goal is to provide a quality tutoring service. Please check out my many positive reviews and feedbacks. I look forward to working with you!

Elementary (K-6th)

I have worked with many K-6th students with elementary math and English. Typically, I explain concepts to them in easy to understand and simple terms. I also explain concepts in many different ways as well. To reinforce these concepts, we do practice problems together until the student is comfortable. I believe patience and clear communication is key when working with elementary students.
