Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Grammar and Mechanics tutors in La Mesa, CA
" I tutored various subjects, including math, science, history, and English. In 2007 I returned to Southern California where I continued working with students. Most of the students I have worked with have needed help in Math and English, including reading and writing, but I continued to work with students in subjects such as history and some science. As a tutor, my main goal is to have the students I am working with, enjoy the subjects they are struggling with and master them."

"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."

Over the past four years I have tutored individuals ranging in age from eight to 18 years old, in areas ranging from basic reading comprehension to high school level math.

"I have experience teaching study skills and organization (that's always the first step; I even work on this with my graduate students), analytical writing (especially college and graduate school admissions essays), SAT and GRE test prep, statistics, math, psychology, and computer science. I believe that a good tutor can adapt to fit individual students’ learning styles (in fact, I even did some research on this!), and I enjoy coming up with both fun examples that make the material relevant to the student and memorable.
