Carefully selected, highly-credentialed SSAT tutors in Los Angeles, CA
"The subjects I have tutored the most include math and science, though there are a variety of subjects I can tutor. Throughout the years, I have created a teaching style that emphasizes utilization of what each student already knows and helping them create links and critical thoughts based on the foundations they already have. When not at school or work, I like to express my creativity through music and crafts. I also frequent local coffee shops, book stores, and performances/shows.."

"I started getting paid for it during college when I tutored students in Pre-Calculus to upper level Calculus courses. I have tutored students that are Engineering majors to those going into law. Teaching a huge array of people that come from different backgrounds, I have to tutor in a way that everyone is able to understand. Additionally, my degree in Meteorology helps those that are in Chemistry and Physics as the fundamentals of meteorology require a background in these fields."

"In college and graduate school, my friends would ask me to proofread their papers or clarify some of the topics from our classes. After my studies, I returned to my old high school as a substitute teacher where I spent a semester teaching algebra and geometry classes and directing the school play. Among my peers, I tend to be the go-to guy for any questions about math or grammar. When I'm not tutoring or working at a day job, I like to attend live theater, write, hike, or participate in anything else that is both active and creative.." ...

"I also teach a bi-weekly SAT Prep course in Glendale, and an advanced Competition Math class for two age groups (6-8 and 9-12). It's a lot of fun! I've always found math pretty neat and like to get students interested in it too! I love to travel and have been fortunate enough to do a lot of it during my quarter-century on this planet—Russia, all over Europe, the Middle East, Venezuela, Mexico, India, and pretty much every state in this country. You only live once, and I really do learn something new every day. Of all the jobs I’ve had while pursuing music and art, I’ve found that teaching is the one in which I have the most to offer and that gives me the ...

" Additionally, a fellow student and I set up and taught a poetry and short story composition class at a local correctional facility during our final two years at Yale. As such, I am very comfortable connecting with and tutoring students from a wide range of backgrounds. I have extensive experience with standardized tests; I have taken and scored highly on the ISEE, the SSAT, the PSAT, the SAT, and the LSAT.

" My tutoring experience started as far back as I can remember with my very own sister who is 4 years younger than me. I helped her with everything from fractions, to AP homework, to college applications and essays. In high school I was a volunteer peer tutor in subjects ranging from algebra to English, and even to this day my high school friends still send me their essays to proofread! In college I spent 2 years as a student-teacher for a volunteer-run after school arts program in local South Side Chicago elementary schools, where we taught children fundamental concepts and themes in fine art and how to express those in their own art projects. ...

"During college I learned to surf and worked at day camps as a science (marine biology, zoology, biology, entomology, astrology, and geology) curriculum developer and teacher. I also worked as a private tutor for 8- to 12-year olds in English, math, and science. Upon graduating I applied for and was accepted into the alternative teaching education program Teach For America; I was placed in Oklahoma City as a secondary math teacher and spent time teaching algebra 1 and 7th grade math and tutoring 7th-12th grade students in math (general, pre-algebra, algebra 1 and 2, geometry, trigonometry, and calculus), English, and science ...

"Through a program called the Academic Mastery Program, I led weekly workshops and developed supplementary worksheets for students in chemistry classes. In addition, I have had significant experience tutoring high school and college students in both math and chemistry and have an aptitude for writing, Spanish, and standardized testing. I love showing students that subjects that may initially seem daunting are in fact easily accessible with the appropriate skill sets. Moreover, I enjoy working with students to develop strategies according to their learning styles and to help them gain confidence in their abilities." ...

"I taught small (1-30 students) and large (approx. 150 students) sessions in which I reinforced concepts taught in the classroom. As a tutor, I strive to mold students to be efficient and effective learners, so they have the ability to pursue extracurricular activities that are increasingly important for personal growth and applications. I believe tutoring is more than just an avenue for teaching, but an avenue for mentoring."

"I learned to be flexible while working at a “drop-in” tutoring lab, never knowing what to expect. In one day, I went from helping a student with an Intro to Shakespeare paper to working on another student’s scholarship statement of purpose to helping a student fine-tune his Computer Science graduate dissertation. I also tutored intensively with ESL/ELL students and taught a UCSB workshop on how to develop your narrative style and creative voice. Though I often work with college students, I've also tutored high school students in English, U.S." ...
