Carefully selected, highly-credentialed ACT English tutors in La Mesa, CA
"I love tutoring topics in both English and French, and have a thorough understanding of the SAT and ACT reading and writing sections. I first started teaching when I worked as a camp counselor in Julian, CA, educating kids from 8-16 about gardening and organic farming – this was the first time I had ever been in a teaching position, and I loved seeing the enthusiasm of my campers grow each week. I have since become an academic tutor at the USD Writing Center, helping undergraduate and graduate students develop their reading and writing skills. Students that I have tutored have come in with a variety of requests, including help with ...

"I have tutored students in a variety of subjects but have most frequently tutored in math. In my spare time in college, I was also known to help out my peers in various subjects, including math, accounting and essay composition. I love breaking down topics for the students and helping them understand concepts on a basic level and building up from that. I absolutely love the feeling of helping a student work through confusion and reach understanding. I believe every student is different and learns differently."

"I have years of tutoring experience. I have worked most with high school students in math and science, but I'm always excited to spend time with younger students.

"I'm most comfortable teaching Algebra and test prep for the SAT and ACT, but am more than willing to tutor in other subjects as well. I'm new to the San Diego area but have already fallen in love it! Originally from the East Coast, I love the weather and friendly people. One of my favorite places here is La Jolla Cove - listening to those sea lions is something else. I enjoy running, reading, and playing with my Rhodesian Ridgeback, Cassius as well. I look forward to helping my students achieve their academic goals! ."

"I learned more of the same from my year as an SAT instructor for a major test prep company, my semester as an aide to an 8th grade algebra teacher, and my six months as a volunteer literacy tutor for READ San Diego. I have had two years of training in tutoring and presenting material effectively. It is a common mistake of tutors to simply lecture rather than explain and interact. That is something you need not fear from me. I am a big fan of individual one-on-one tutoring, since a student's individual needs can often be overlooked in a classroom setting." ...

" I realized how much fun it is to teach and continued tutoring when I was in college. I tutored my fellow students in Mandarin Chinese, French, and chemistry.

" From an early age I always loved math and, unlike many of my classmates, took a great pleasure in being introduced to new topics. I like to describe math as a sort of puzzle. Each piece builds off of something else, creating a more complete picture. It's therefore always important to have a solid grasp of the basics - to understand the previous steps - before learning each new topic."

"I was a writing tutor at UCSD for two years, working with all levels of writers, and as much as I love biology, writing is a blast to tutor! I was also a tutor for Immunology at UCSD. While my experience is with college-level subjects, I enjoy helping students understand the basics as well. There is nothing like seeing that look of understanding on a student's face! It makes it all worthwhile. In my free time I enjoy hanging out with my friends, whether that be playing old school video games at home, or going out Salsa and Swing dancing." ...

For the past year I worked in an affordable housing community where I ran an after school program for students of all ages."
