About Herbert


Bio

Tutoring is my full time job. With well over 20 years of teaching/tutoring experience, I doubt there are many tutors as patient, talented or effective as I am. I bring a lot more to the table than what you see "on paper" and am constantly told by my students how well I explain things. Though other tutors may be cheaper, I am more efficient due to my experience and explanations. After 5 lessons, one of my SAT Math students improved her Math test score by 140 points last year!

Tutoring is my full time job. With well over 20 years of teaching/tutoring experience, I doubt there are many tutors as patient, talented or effective as I am. I bring a lot more to the table than what you see "on paper" and am constantly told by my students how well I explain things. Though other tutors may be cheaper, I am more efficient due to my experience and explanations. After 5 lessons, one of my SAT Math students improved her Math test score by 140 points last year! Another went from a 620 to a 700 after 4 lessons with me. I have a degree from UCLA in mechanical engineering; my math skills are what got me through it. I was always a top math student in high school and college, and I am able to patiently show students more than one way to solve most problems. I get along well with younger people and am able to connect in order to explain math, which I know many students do not like. I am also effective with adult students who I know can feel awkward about material they have not seen in years. I was a full time high school math teacher and left that because my math tutoring business in the Los Angeles area became so busy due to my success with students. After that, I was briefly a community college instructor in Arizona, before I moved back to the Northern Virginia suburbs 8 years ago to be near my family again. I have been tutoring full-time for these past 8 years in the DC area. I can tutor all high school math including pre-calculus, trigonometry, geometry and Algebra I&II, 2 years of Calculus and beyond; plus SAT, GRE, ACT and other standardized test preparation. I can also tutor Physics and first year Chemistry.

Algebra 1

I have had tremendous success with my math students, including Algebra 1.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I have been tutoring Algebra 2 since I was 14 years old because the kids sitting next to me in high school would ask me how to do different problems. I have a degree in Engineering from UCLA and my math skills are what got me through it! Most importantly I can explain the material well and make it easier.
Calculus,

Calculus

I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering from UCLA where I actually used Calculus regularly in my upper level classes. I tutor full-time and it is fair to say typically three hours a night are with Calculus students, sometimes I tutor AB, BC or other forms of Calculus five or more hours in a day solving a variety of problems.

Geometry,

Geometry

I am very successful explaining mathematics to all levels of student, including Geometry.
Physics,

Physics

I teach a lot of physics (almost daily, sometimes a few lessons per day) and show students how to be successful even when they do not totally understand the concepts (sometimes that understanding takes time to sink in). Mostly I use mathematics to work towards the solutions to the problems and show the student how to also check units of measure as part of the answer.

Extremely Knowledgeable Tutor

Herbert has a very calm approach, is extremely knowledgeable, and has a tutoring style to match the student's needs. I look forward to working with him so that I learn the processes and formulas, but more importantly the concept behind each.

Zach, 19 lessons with Herbert

Jam-packed Lesson

Herbert gave a jam-packed lesson of basic calculus topics. He uses graphs to get his point across. When you don't understand a reviewed topic, he patiently explains the "why", which is always good!

Kathleen, 14 lessons with Herbert

Very good tutor!!

My son said this math lesson really, really helped him (and he doesn't say that very much!!) He had been struggling with the math section of his upcoming testing and the lesson really was of great benefit.

Susan, 7 lessons with Herbert

Calculus

Herbert was great. His explanations were to the point and allowed my child to understand concepts clearly and thoroughly. He was engaging and made learning enjoyable!!
