About Dr. "Z"
I have a bachelor's degree and went to U.C. Berkeley right after high school. I am a unique tutor in that I also have an M.D.degree! I love working with children as well as adults. I have over 15 years of post-high school education and over 10 years of tutoring experience! I have been tutoring students professionally in Math, Language Arts, Science, among other subjects since 2008. Before that, I taught remedial workshop classes for more than 2 years. After medical school, I spent 2 years training in a externship program in psychiatry at an accredited residency hospital. What I learned in the program gives me an edge in teaching, and understanding the learning style of each individual student as well as working with those who have learning differences, such as those who have ADHD, Autism (ASD), Dyslexia, and Asperger's.

I cater my lessons individually to each student as each student's learning style is completely different. This way I maximize the learning experience each student has with me.

I was failing genetics and with online tutoring i went from a 69% to A. He really has your best interests in mind, when i asked him last minute to help and he was too packed helping other students he referred me to another well rounded tutor. dr. Z is worth the wait since he has a lot of patience for disabled students, he truly enables them. Thank you for helping me accomplish such a tough subject.

I just started nursing school at UCLA and had failed my first midterm. Dr. Z was really supportive and taught me how to study. He really knew how to teach the material. After tutoring with him on a daily basis, my grade went up to an A on the final, and I received an A- in the class ! Whoo!!!. This tutor is excellent in every way and I highly recommend him!

Katherine tutored both of my teenage daughters for the SAT. Her sage advice, helpful tips, and thorough knowledge of the material guided my daughters’ preparation. They each took the SAT in the middle of their junior year and, thanks to Kate, felt ready and confident. They far surpassed their PSAT scores earning a 1530 and 1560. Although my daughters have very different personalities and learning styles, Kate identified their individual strengths and personalized their tutoring sessions. My older daughter also employed Katherine’s strategies on her English Regents exam and received a 99. We are so thankful for Katherine’s patient, thoughtful, and supportive preparation and thrilled with our daughters’ results.

Katherine was amazing! She was focused and stayed on task with my daughter. Working with Katherine for even just 10 lessons gave my daughter the confidence, techniques, and information for her to raise her SAT score by 270 points!
She is an ultimate professional arriving on time and prepared to start right away. Assignments were doable with my daughters schedule and communication with me was fantastic. I would more than highly recommend her for tutoring if any age!

The instructor was very professional and extremely well prepared. She tutored me for the GRE exam for about five months, and I can honestly say that my preparation was boosted by her great teaching skills as well as careful lesson planning. The sessions were planned in detail in order to work on all of the three sections of the test, paying particular attention to those topics that needed extra practice first. Weekly material was brought to class, and homework were regularly assigned and checked. The tutor was reliable and could be reached by email during the week for any questions and/or clarifications regarding the course work. Would recommend to anyone.

About Clifford
'Dr. Cliff,' a part-time college/university professor, teacher and tutor with 5 master's and 3 doctoral degrees in a variety of topics: Mathematics, Computer Information Systems, Computer Science, Management Information Systems, MBA, Leadership, Education and Administration. He has always used proven educational techniques to instruct undergraduate students, graduate students and school children/teenagers (K-12).

Dr. Cliff believes that, although many professors and teachers do an admirable job in the classroom, many students
and children do not learn well in traditional institutions. Many students and children don't respond to the assembly line nature of most institutions. He believes that a student's or child's strengths and natural abilities need to be the foundation of learning. Dr. Cliff often warns against a "cookie cutter" approach to educating students, teenagers and children. You or your child is seen as an individual, and natural strengths are identified and built upon. Therefore, individual one-on-one tutoring or help is the key approach to each student who has any challenges difficulties in a given subject.

In today’s environment and economic challenges, with shorter budgets for the education, larger classes sizes and pressure of performing well in all kind of standard tests, I often see many students lacking true knowledge and skills in a given subject, since they cannot get individualized attention during the class session. That’s where a tutor comes into the picture, not only uncover major “holes” in students’ knowledge set but also teach students how to study, how to learn and through proper guidance “fill” those knowledge and skills holes.

Master in all SAT math 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
818-577-7000

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 9 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 very 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 subje
cts can be attributed 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 • and more

Computers:
• MS Word • Excel • PowerPoint • Adobe Acrobat • General Windows/MAC

Mentorship:
• Grade Monitoring • Teacher Collaboration

Executive Functioning:
• Organization • Time Management • Study Skills

• Completely turned around achievement and self-confidence of mentored students
• Track record of student improvement particularly in math and physics

In 1.5 hour, I walked away with not having any of my excel questions solved. Nice guy, but Just make sure he can assist your Microsoft Excel needs before booking a session with him.

A recent student's SAT success story:
During a Summer intercession, the parents of a soon-to-be HS Senior hired me for SAT tutoring. He had stellar grades, shining recommendations, an elite prep school resumé... the real deal! Even so, despite SAT classes and rigorous studying, his exam scores were lackluster at best. I got to work and helped him to raise his composite score by **8 points** in a period of just 6 weeks of tutoring sessions. His previous scores were below the implied minimum for his first choice school. With my help, he brought the score up in time to use it for his application a few weeks later and ... he got in! He now attends that very school, a renowned Midwestern top-25 university.

As a high school student applying to universities, I scored in the 99th percentile on both the ACT and SAT exams, which undoubtedly aided in my acceptance to my first choice school, USC. (Fight on!)

I have nearly 10 years tutoring for college entrance exam (SAT, ACT) preparation.

About Erin
I carry an enthusiasm for knowledge, excitement about the "nerdy" subjects like mathematics and science, and determination to pass that on to my students. I believe in the power of positive reinforcement and prefer to educate students, whether highly gifted or experiencing significant obstacles, in a manner that will leave them not only more knowledgeable, but also more confident. I never use the same approach twice. Each session is tailored to my students' strengths and needs, filling in what is incomplete, and building upon what they already possess. I am passionate about education and the development of growing minds, and it shows in my sessions.

I have nearly 10 years total experience working as an educator. I began my experience teaching chemistry and mathematics in a classroom setting as part of a philanthropy program sponsored b
y my college, University of Southern California. I continued in the industry working for several companies such as Sylvan Learning Centers, Kaplan, TutorFind, and Club Z Tutoring. Since that time, I have continued to work privately with countless students, tailoring my lessons to students' needs and allowing our interactions to grow beyond academic instruction into academic planning, college admissions processes, and mentorship.

I specialize in mathematics, physics, chemistry, and standardized test preparation, but am also available as a general supplemental education provider for any and all subjects with which I have sufficient experience. I like to build a strong connection with my students and their parents, offering not only supplemental education, but also mentorship and academic advisement. I have worked with many families during the planning stages of transition from middle school to high school and high school to university, helping plan a solid academic structure for the student that will guarantee success.

I am available for last-minute tutoring (e.g. studying for a final exam), short-term tutoring solutions (e.g. standardized test preparation), as well as long-term instruction on a regular basis for students with ongoing needs.

She has a strong academic background from Wellesley College and has experience tutoring recently through private tutoring as well as through her experience at Huntington Tutoring and Learning Center, as well as through Mission Hill After School Program.

She is incredibly patient with girls of all ages, and breaks down skater mechanics in a very clear and concise way. The kids love her and tell all of the other coaches all the time that she's their favorite. #nottakingitpersonally

The public school system of today requires individuals to function as a different kind of educator. They need teachers who will not only teach, but will also inspire and lead. Moreover, they need administrators who understand the different relationships between students, parents, and schools. As an administrator, I oversaw the successful deployment of several tutoring programs and worked to ensure the longevity of these initiatives. I have a wealth of experience and knowledge to contribute.

I spent 10 years working for a test prep company in DC, the most competitive SAT/ACT region in the country, and now I'm a private tutor in Los Angeles. I create a personalized program that focuses on each student's specific weaknesses, and I use materials that I've designed to narrowly target each question type. Just as important, I build students' confidence so that they don't give up on hard questions. In between sessions, I'll assign and grade homework, critique essays, score practice tests, and provide feedback to students and parents. I'm confident I'll exceed expectations - and so will your scores!

About Mike
I'm a Johns Hopkins University graduate who has earned multiple perfect scores on the SAT. In the decade I spent working for a test prep company, I taught students of various abilities, ran prep courses, wrote class materials for all three subjects, advised families about every aspect of the standardized testing process, and gave SAT and ACT presentations at local high schools. I doubt you'll find anyone with more experience!

I often work with students whose SAT scores don't match up with their grades, so if that sounds like you, don't worry! The SAT is a unique test that asks questions about familiar topics that you've learned in school, but it does so in a way that disguises those topics. For example, you might be staring at a Math question that makes you feel totally lost - like you don't even know where to start. In fact, you probabl
y have all the knowledge you need to solve it. My job is to help you get better at searching your brain for the right strategy.

I use real practice tests so that you can see more questions and get more comfortable with the format of the exam. But I've also written my own study materials that break the SAT and ACT down into manageable "packets". Each packet is meant to narrow your focus to a certain question type. I think you'll see pretty quickly that the SAT doesn't change all that much from test to test, so once you know how to recognize each question type, you won't be surprised when you see it on the next exam. That's why they call it a standardized test - the questions don't vary all that much!

By breaking the test down into manageable chunks, I can make it easier to learn the material because you won't have to memorize hundreds of formulas, grammar rules, and vocabulary words at once. Small goals are easier to achieve. And accomplishing those little goals will boost your confidence, making you more willing to try the hardest problems that you used to give up on. As you take practice tests, you'll see those scores go up, and you'll actually be excited for test day!

About Benjamin
Sometimes, being a student gets in the way of learning. Homework deadlines, GPA cutoffs, and lists of details for standardized tests can take the joy out of the material you're studying, and with it any chance of real understanding.

I help my students look at their learning from a different perspective, relax, and make the simple improvements they've been overlooking in their hurry. Math, science, English, standardized testing - at the high school level and below, there's nothing you can't handle with solid fundamentals and a few veteran tricks.

Learning takes confidence and enthusiasm - two resources that can run low under the pressure not to fall behind. A little help can go a long way.
