About Sol
Sol De P.
TUTORING EXPERIENCE:
I have tutored students in the following subjects:
Basic Math
Algebra
Geometry
Trigonometry
Pre-Calculus
Calculus
Physics

INDUSTRIAL EXPERIENCE:
Most recently, I was employed at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), where I received several outstanding achievement awards. Previous industrial affiliations have included Digital Enterprises, Application Research Corporation, IBM and Hughes Aircraft Company.
My experience includes the application of mathematics and physics in computer based research and software development.

ABOUT ME:
I am a Caltech graduate now working as a professional Math/Science tutor. I live in West Los Angeles. I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics and a Master of Science degree in Electrical Engineering, both obtained at the Californ
ia Institute of Technology.

TEACHING APPROACH:
I am very patient and methodical when it comes to teaching. I make the sessions fun and interesting. I explain concepts in ways that are easy to understand. My teaching approach often focuses on developing self confidence and motivation, and overcoming barriers to learning. I concentrate on viewing the subject matter from the student's point of view, and I teach using that as a guide.

I believe that with the right guidance, any student can achieve success in any subject. First and foremost, I care about my students. Their success is what makes me successful. I treat all students with respect.

TESTIMONIALS:
"My son's math scores were very low due to illness and missed school. We hired tutors in the past but it always ended with a lot of frustration and tears. When Sol started working with my son it was different from the very first session. Instead of tears and frustration I saw my son transformed to a happy confident teen that now enjoys math. It takes time, doesn't happen overnight. The difference in my child is priceless. Sol has a way about him that children respond to. As a parent I highly recommend Sol." ~ Ariel

“Sol is a wonderful Math tutor who really helped my daughter grasp Trigonometry and Pre-Calculus in a short time, which helped her improve her grade significantly! My daughter began the first semester of this school year (last Fall) confused, frustrated and hating her class. Within a few short months with Sol's help she is now feeling confident and able to understand the complexities of this Math class and navigates her way through the lessons and homework with ease and confidence! I can't thank Sol enough for his ability to teach and simplify a subject that gives so many kids nightmares! Thank you, Sol!!!” ~Marina

"Our daughter started working with Sol in the fall. She went from a 2 to a 5 on the Calculus BC AP test. Sol was very kind and patient. He was always punctual, and flexible about accommodating our schedule. Most importantly though, he was very creative and intuitive in helping our daughter. He analyzed the problems she was having and tailored the sessions to address her weaknesses. He did not come in with a set approach that he uses with every student. He was able to communicate well with our daughter and continued to adjust his help to address her changing needs. Sol seems to listen better than some tutors. He did a great job and we recommend him very highly." ~ Damon

"My daughter has been having trouble in math since second grade. I've been taking her to after-school classes, group tutoring and tutor programs but none of them really made much impact. By ninth grade, she was convinced she couldn't keep up with her classmates and (understandably) had an aversion to even trying. Thankfully, we found Sol, and she started working with him one-on-one, one to two hours a week. It's been a huge relief to see her go from so confused to having a good understanding of what she's doing. Sol has a way of just keeping a kid on track without pushing too hard, or wasting any time. He is always patient and just gets to work. He explains things clearly and provides study problems when necessary. Through working with Sol and practicing the specific types of problems that were the most difficult for her, my daughter is finally comfortable with math, and can keep up with her grade level. I recommend Sol very highly!" ~Abby

"Sol is patient, listens, is heart-felt, and he has addressed my needs (as I have some learning challenges) and he has demonstrated a willingness to find ways to present the information tailored to my strengths." ~ Jeannie

"Hi Sol!
Just wanted to tell you that I got an A on the final in math, as well as an overall A in the class! Thank you so much for everything, I wouldn't have been able to accomplish this without you!!" ~Shishi

"Please know that I really cherished our sessions--you're a great teacher and I enjoyed your company a lot. Hoping our paths cross again." ~Matthew

"Thank you, Sol,
For your thoroughness, and for your focus and gentleness. I'm so glad we found you." ~Abby

"Hey Sol,
Just wanted to let you know that I finished this semester with an A in the class! Thanks for all the help. I definitely wouldn't have been able to do it without you. I plan to see you again this fall." ~Alonzo

"Exciting news - my daughter got 100% on her math test last week! This is amazing. Thank you so much for being such a wonderful teacher. All of her hard work with your help is paying off big time. She really enjoys working with you. We are lucky to have met you." ~ Nikki

“Sol!! Great news! I got into USC!!!
This is so amazing, this wouldn’t have been possible without you! Fight on!✌🏼❤️💛” ~Alonzo

Master in most physics concepts. Can identify student shortfalls and address them through the subject fundamentals approach and by tying in real world applications for easier grasp of material.

About Daniel
I'm a graduate of UCLA School of Engineering with a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering. I have a passion for explaining how the physical world works through math and physics along with 10 years of tutoring experience in those subjects, test prep, and mentorship programs. The teaching strategy I believe in emphasizes subject fundamentals, a powerful and necessary tool for higher problem solving. This strategy has proven effective regardless of the student's educational background or mental ability. Besides being knowledgeable, I am motivating, caring, and patient in guiding your student to academic success!

Executive Functioning is a separate realm that tutoring can assist in. It deals with cognitive processes including organization, time management, and study skills. Much of the difficulty students face in academic subjects can be attribute
d to the lack of executive functioning. They either cannot keep up with the pace and workload that advanced courses demand or haven't figured out the best way to study for themselves. I am able to assess a student's shortcomings and formulate a plan for higher achievement.

Math:
• Elementary • Pre-Algebra • Algebra 1 & 2 • Geometry • Pre-Calculus
• Trigonometry • AP Calculus • Applied/Business Calculus • Differential Equations

Physics:
• AP Physics 1 & 2 • College Physics

Test Prep:
• SAT I & II • ACT • ISEE • SSAT • HSPT • GRE • TEAS and more

Computers:

I gave William 5 stars because he's the best. He is good at what he does. When ever I was getting into a panic state, William will keep calm and cool as a cucumber.
He takes his time to explain concepts when you don't understand. he will keep working with you until you meet your objectives. I'm happy with my sections with him right now, and will keep working with him. He's one of the most pleasant person I have ever met. Thanks William.

Los Angeles, CA
View Full Profile

As a student, I studied physics and chemistry in high school, and earned a 5's on all four of my AP exams for math and science.
In college, I continued in the Physics Department at USC and completed calculus-based physics coursework in: particle mechanics & dynamics, electricity & magnetism, thermodynamics (oh boy!), and statics. This was in tandem with corresponding coursework in General and Organic Chemistry, Geochemistry, Calculus, Linear Algebra and Differential Equations and Statistics

I have nearly 10 years experience tutoring math, physics and chemistry, for students both in high school and university courses. Whether you just want to get through your course with a "good" grade or you want to create a *solid* foundation for continued education in engineering/sciences, I can help you to achieve your goals!

About Erin
I carry an enthusiasm for knowledge and "nerdy" subjects like mathematics and science! I believe in the power of positive reinforcement and aim to foster not only knowledge, but also confidence. Lessons are individualized for the student and their goal grade/test score. I am passionate about education and the development of growing minds, and it shows in my sessions.

My assistance doesn't stop just because the lesson is over. I make myself available to students (via email) for as-needed homework and study-related questions.

I have nearly 10 years experience working as an educator.
I am honored to work with students throughout the year, for long-term results, but am also happy to assist with short-term needs such as midterm/final exam preparation.

Also available for:
College admissions consulting -- Let me help your family nav
igate this complex process. I can assist with choosing programs and schools, tailoring applications to each recipient school, and generally putting together the strongest possible application packet.

About Amadou C.

View Full Profile

I love teaching physics because I have always been a scientist at heart, from making trebuchets in the attic, to forcing a thermometer into boiling water to see if it passes 100 degrees centigrade before evaporating, in order to confirm the laws of the physical states of matter. I love spreading my love of physics to others, because it makes me happy when I can have elaborate conversations about simple machines with random individuals. In order to have those conversations, I must first break physics down to a level in which others can easily grasp its concepts. I do this by applying concept decomposition, which is explaining the theory behind all of the abstract formulas and laws that riddle classical physics. Let's stop letting physics surprise us, and let's surprise it when you ace your electrostatics test, and 'Flummox Physics'.

About Amadou
I am a distinguished graduate from Illinois Tech with a bachelor's of mechanical engineering. I make it my duty to break down many of the complexities in math, science and engineering that have been plaguing students since the beginning of time. I have over 10 years of teaching experience teaching students of all ages math, science and ACT/SAT prep who have went on to make 180 degree turns in their grades. This field experience has allowed me to develop the patience and understanding that is crucial in producing stellar students.

As an engineering-inclined individual, I encourage an exemplary study ethic in my students as well as an organized and systematic approach geared towards maximizing student grades/scores. I also bring results by relating to my students by incorporating elements of the things that they like (sports, hobbies, m
usic, etc...) into their most challenging courses allowing them to even potentially develop a passion for their most difficult courses. I always make a conscious effort to work at each student's own pace and I make it my priority to decompose the most challenging topics into components that can be more easily internalized by my students, effectively increasing their grades and giving them the self-confidence and enthusiasm they need to get killer grades. I guarantee quality, commitment, and results!

Having lived in over 20 countries has also permitted me to maintain my patience, composure and sense of flexibility and open-mindedness when dealing with even the most extreme personalities. I believe that everyone has potential; however potential is worthless unless put in motion. And experts like me take pride in our abilities to give students that push, that jolt of energy that galvanizes them into pulling themselves up by their own bootstraps, allowing them to achieve academic excellence.

I have always been fascinated with mathematics and all of it's related branches. As a chemical engineer major with over four years of tutoring, I have both the expertise and experience to teach anyone mathematics in a fun and interactive learning environment. I can explain complex concepts using easy-to-understand terms and relevant examples. My goal is to connect students with foundational knowledge and problem solving methods so that they can tackle any math problem by themselves. I believe that having a strong core in mathematics will not only increase a student's grades but will also boost their confidence, motivation, and interest in the subject as well.

About Ariel
Hey! I'm an experienced mathematics and physics tutor with a B.S. degree in Chemical Engineering from UCSD. I have been tutoring privately and at various institutions (Sylvan, Kumon, Cambridge Learning Center) and offer high quality sessions tailored to each individual. I'm dedicated to making sure each concept is understood fully by emphasizing fundamentals and explaining solutions step-by-step. I easily connect with students and I strive to instill in them everything they need to stay motivated and reach their full potential.

I deeply believe in the importance of intuition when it comes to studying physics. It is true that mathematics plays an important role in physics but that is not all there is to it. I think about physics as more of applied science, and therefore it is important to really understand the reasons behind the mathematical formulations that are necessary to study physics.

I like to teach my students the whys, not just hows, of solving physics problems. I believe with that after a while the students will develop enough intuition and become independent and won't be needing me ;)

About Morteza
As a high school student, I participated in the International Physics Olympiad in the year 2003 and I won a Silver Medal. That's a physics competition that happens every year among high school students from all over the world.

I have also thought other high school students who intended to attend the competition.

I have a BSc degree in Mechanical Engineering and a BSc degree in Physics. I also have a Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania.
