"I've always loved puzzles and problem solving, so naturally math and science have always been my strong suits. As a matter of fact, calculus was and still is my favorite subject. As an engineer I am also well grounded in physics and chemistry. I've always been a good test-taker and I know what it takes to get the grades."

"With an undergraduate degree from Yale University and a Master's Degree from the University of California, Davis, I feel I offer a unique skillset to my students. I also have a broad range of tutoring experience from my days as a 4th and 7th grade teacher. 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 ...

" But I'm not as stodgy and boring as that would lead one to believe. I'm a pop culture fiend who loves television, music and comic books. And although I have years of tutoring experience, I have also held down jobs as a movie theater projectionist, radio disc jockey, and short-order cook. After applying to Law Schools (and receiving full scholarships to a few of them thanks to my 99th percentile LSAT score), I instead decided to follow my passion for education. I now attend California State University, San Marcos working toward obtaining my high school teaching credential. As a tutor, I have experience with young children, teenagers and ...

"I can help high school students with their college entrance essays, and I can also provide solid grounding in the basics of reading, grammar and additional communication skills. Along with my background in communications, my teaching experience has stretched into other subject areas as well. During my first year of college, I taught a conversation class for Beginning Portuguese language students. I also instructed two elementary school students in beginning piano. Having taught in a wide variety of subjects has led me to encounter many different teaching scenarios." ...

" I've tutored a lot of people in the past 7 years, and one thing's for sure: no matter how much or how little you want to improve, it's never too late! While I was doing my Master's program at ASU, I realized that I really have a gift when it comes to languages. Lately, I've been teaching English to international students at a local university, and I love it! I have also begun specializing in A.P. Exam Prep - specifically, A.P. U.S."

"I provide tutoring services for science, math, and SAT test preparation, but math and physics are easily my strongest areas (as shown by my chosen major). I first began tutoring as a sophomore in high school when my neighbor asked me to tutor her son and after receiving positive feedback, I began to search for more students who needed a little extra help in school. However, the bond I had with my original client remains strong to this day. After tutoring him for three years, whenever I return to Northern California, I visit the family to see how they are doing." ...

" I began tutoring in high school, was a tutor and peer mentor in college, and a teaching assistant in graduate school. 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. I ...

"I can only teach inside the circle my life has drawn for me. Since the circle has been made of flexibility, I teach in the style that seems to fit the situation. I like to draw, I like figuring out puzzles, I like to flip problems upside down (usually not literally) to solve them and explain to others how to reached the end. I am a recent UCSD graduate with a passion for learning and a drive to help others. Consequently, I’ve worked in education most of my life and aspire to become a medically/educationally transparent pediatrician." ...
