"I grew up in Spring Hill, FL and, before coming to Los Angeles, lived in many different cities, including Mexico City, Lima, Barcelona and Washington, DC. While I tutor a variety of subjects, such as standardized test preparation, biology, economics, reading skills and statistics, math is easily my favorite. As a teaching assistant in economics at Johns Hopkins University, I learned very quickly that it is not uncommon for students to feel anxiety over math, and I feel that anxiety is both unjustified and reparable. It is my belief that anyone can master the tools necessary to solve the puzzles that math problems present, if only they can ...

" During that time I've spent four years teaching Latin and English at independent schools in New York and California and four years doing graduate work in the Classics at USC, three of which were spent teaching Latin and Greek to undergraduates while enrolled. While I can teach other subjects, the majority of my work comes in Latin and other Classical areas, and I've made it sort of a life's mission of mine to instill the same enthusiasm in my students about the ancient world as I have. I firmly believe that learning Latin is as valuable for one's development as a student and a scholar as Math or English Literature. I also understand that ...

"I have spent pretty much my entire life in school, as a student and a teacher, and I have tutored many along the way. I am a die hard Lakers and UCLA fan, and I am what I refer to as a neuro nerd. I love psychology, but what really interests me is how the brain itself actually works. This incorporates both psychology and biology in the most interesting way."

"I am currently a graduate student at USC. I finished my Bachelor's in Biochemistry from UC San Diego and my Master of Public Health from University of Texas, Houston. I work mostly with graduate students as a teaching assistant in biostatistics and epidemiology, but have taught and tutored college level and high school level biology and mathematics. I believe that both tutoring and mentoring are parts of the process of learning. In my free time, I try to travel as much as much as possible, and my goal is to travel to a new country every year. ." ...

"After starting Spanish classes, I was utterly passionate about foreign language. Some of my best friends in college were student teachers from Argentina and China. In addition to two language immersion programs, I did a two-year stint as a teaching assistant for first-year Chinese (which was one of my all-time favorite classes, both to take and to teach). Eventually I went to China to teach English for a year, but decided to come home because of a lack of long-term job prospects. Despite that, I still love my languages and try to stay current by reading foreign news and doing translations." ...

I started getting paid for it during college when I tutored students in Pre-Calculus to upper level Calculus courses."

"I'm a Southern California native, having grown up in Monterey Park and Irvine, CA. While a student at UCSB, I became deeply involved with life on campus and developed a love of teaching, mentoring, and inspiring other students to use their skills to improve the campus community. I developed and taught an environmental education curriculum for third graders at a local elementary school, and won awards for sustainability communication projects, culminating in the Outstanding Service Award from the Environmental Studies program upon graduation. A lot of my peers(and all three of my younger siblings!) have come to me for help with test ...
