Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Test prep tutors in Vista, CA
"Upon finishing my degree I joined an organization called Teach For America which helps place teachers in our nation's lowest performing areas. Over the last two years I taught high school math and science in the Mississippi Delta. More specifically, I taught 12th grade Psychology/Sociology/English, 11th grade Chemistry, 9th grade Physical Science/Algebra 1, and AP Physics. Whether working with large groups or individuals, accelerated learners or students requiring extra support, being a part of the teaching and learning process is amazing! Outside of academics I really enjoy the wilderness, sports, and music." ...

"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. It is my goal to make up for any deficits that a student might experience from lack of teacher attention and to advance his or her knowledge beyond that of his or her peers."

" 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 brainstorming and analyzing assigned texts for class, working on formal academic writing, constructing an argument, use of MLA or AP styles, ...

"I tutored my fellow students in Mandarin Chinese, French, and chemistry. After I graduated, I went to China and taught English both at a school and privately for three years. Right now I'm teaching English as a Second Language at a language school here in San Diego.

" 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. My approach to tutoring thus focuses less on memorizing formulas, and more on understanding why these work and how you can arrive at them yourself. I have always enjoyed being able to help other people, and my somewhat unique outlook on mathematics, coupled with my experienced mathematics background, have enabled me to assist many different people in the past." ...
