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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

Great math teacher

First visit was very positive and was able to help my son feel comfortable getting some math help. Would highly recommend Anthony D.

Chanel, 2 lessons with Anthony

Skilled tutor

Anthony has been helping my 11-year old son study for the SSAT over the last few weeks. He is introducing him to new math and verbal section concepts and general test strategies. After each session, my son tells me that he can't believe the lesson was an hour long and felt more like 5 minutes-- this is a major testament to Anthony's skilled, patient, and engaging style of instruction. We are very grateful we found Anthony and plan to continue lessons with him going forward!

Excellent- super star tutor

My high school senior son is in advanced math - he said Anthony D is the best explainer ever! He was thrilled with the session and felt very confident with the material. This was a home run.

SSAT Review

Working with my daughter on reading passage analysis and math strategies. Deliberate and thoughtful approach. She is gaining confidence on a daily basis. I expect her improvement to continue and for her preparation to yield very positive results.

David, 6 lessons with Anthony

Very helpful and patient

I had only two tutoring sessions with Anthony before my chem final. He explained things very well compared to my professor. Chemistry has never been my strongest subject but with Anthony’s help I was able to go into my final with full confidence and was able to do everything on the exam! Thank you Anthony for helping me out so much! I passed chemistry with just the final and I’m so thankful! Thank you, Anthony!

Great SAT tutor!

Anthony was awesome -- thorough, patient, and clear in his instructions. My daughter enjoyed working with him. He had access to helpful practice tests and math summary sheets. Highly recommended

Top SAT Reading Tutor

My 11-grade daughter is getting tutoring from the Summer vacation. My picky daughter had tried several tutors before him. She said he was the best. I really appreciate his all effort and excellence. I hope my second daughter also can get help from him. I hope he teaches SAT until that time. I will write a review again when my daughter gets an excellent score at her SAT test.

First online meetup.

Anthony was patient getting the computer set up to start the lesson. My son stated Anthony was way better at explaining the AP Chem lessons than the teacher! Kudos Anthony, thanks much!

Deb, 10 lessons with Anthony

Incredibly knowledgable and extremely patient tutor

I have tried learning from both math class teachers and tutors who didn't understand my learning style or how best to teach me. I had no idea how much difference the right tutor could make! Anthony is very patient, which allowed me time to process and really grasp concepts. He knows every problem like the back of his hand and walked me through the steps so easily it seemed as though he already knew the solution. Anthony accurately assessed both my weaknesses and my strengths and tailored each lesson accordingly. He built my confidence and gave me a foundation of understanding which helped me better absorb the material presented during class. Today, while taking my pre Calculus final, I caught myself grinning because I understood the problems and remembered how to do them! My grade on the final was 30% better than my grades on previous tests and quizzes this semester. I cannot tell you how happy I am to enjoy math again! My only regret is that we didn't find Anthony sooner!
