About Jorge

I am an English teacher who considers himself a lifelong learner. As a lifelong learner, I am passionate about helping student achieve their academic potential in order to empower themselves and others with knowledge. I strongly believe that students can only reach their potential when they are challenged academically, which is why I set high expectations for my students. Although I set high expectations, they are also realistic. My mentor teacher and students have identified my caring nature and ability to validate all student responses as my greatest strength.

I specialize in tutoring English. I can support students in reading, reading comprehension, literary analysis, literature, poetry, writing (argumentative, informational, narrative, literary analysis), and English testing strategies. Although I am an English teacher, I can also tutor in math. I completed the calculus series at UCLA during my first year at college, which makes me confident in effectively teaching elementary math, pre-algebra, and Algebra 1.


Feel free to contact me with any questions! I am more than happy to share examples of activities and lesson plans I have developed in order to demonstrate my ability to provide individualized instruction.

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.

Study Skills

As a recent UCLA graduate I understand which study skills are effective for succeeding in college. The following year I received my single subject credential in English from UCI, and the curriculum for this program included a couple of courses on adolescent psychology. The adolescent psychology courses not only discussed the different ways in which students learn, but they also shared a variety of techniques for teaching students effective studying strategies. Therefore, I am confident in my ability to assist students in establishing productive studying skills that work for them.
