My approach is to first understand the student's needs and goals. With this information, I will develop a plan with the student and parents to reach their objectives. The outcome is invariably to significantly improve grades and test scores.
I graduated from UCLA with a Bachelor of Science in Engineering. I especially enjoy teaching math and science students in middle through high school. I am dedicated to effectively teaching these topics.
My clients have ranged from primary school through MBA candidates. Most of my students have been a wide variety of high school students with many in college prep math and science courses. In my professional career I have effectively taught factory personnel, engineers, business executives, and, most recently, high school students, including a number of athletes.
I enjoy teaching and watching the student's confidence improve. This is accomplished by applying both patience and determination. I believe in open, honest, and frank communication with student and parents alike.
Recently, I have developed additional special teaching skills related to Singapore Math, (primary through high school), assisting with home schooling, (particularly in math and science), and full test preparation for SAT, ACT, and ISEE tests.
I have raised six children and tutored each through good times and the tough spots. Each one of them has achievements beyond my expectations (JD, MBA, BAs and one in process).
