Woodland Hills, CA

View Full Profile

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:
• MS Word • Excel • PowerPoint • Outlook • Adobe Acrobat • Adobe Reader • Google Drive • Skype • General Windows/MAC

Mentorship:
• Grade Monitoring • Teacher Collaboration

Executive Functioning:
• Organization • Time Management • Study Skills • Checking Work

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

Daniel was an incredible tutor for Calculus Part 1, for a college course. I received his help a little late in the game but he did not shy away from the challenge. He gave me advice, showed me how to do problems the proper way and even gave me tips on some shortcuts. I would highly recommend him as a math tutor because he is easy to understand, easy to talk to and makes you feel more knowledgeable.

I hired Daniel to help my daughter prepare for an assessment test. They only had 2 months to prepare and many of the subjects were being introduced to her for the first time. He had his work cut out for him. But he did a phenomenal job. He methodically organized each subject and proceeded to cover it thoroughly before moving on to the next. He had the right balance of persistence and understanding to keep my daughter stay focused and, at the same time, build up her confidence. I'm happy to report that she ended up passing the exam and she credits him for this result.

Excellent tutor! Daniel tutored my 13 year old son in Physics. My son went from being completely lost to getting an A in the class. Very professional, explains topics clearly, connects well with student. My son loved the Skype/online white board method of teaching. No need to go anywhere or sit in traffic. Daniel was flexible with setting up lessons and even made time when urgently needed, like before a test. My son had a great experience and can't wait to learn with Daniel again when he gets to HS physics.

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.

This tutor does not fill the total time paid for. If the student has no more questions, rather than structuring the lesson like other tutors he will simply finish early! I am sure he is very knowledgable, but his accent is very strong, making learning a newer subject harder through trying to understand new words with a strong accent.
A fan was constantly ticking in the background, and he admitted his internet connection was poor.

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.

Chicago, IL

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 with Summa Cum Laude honors from Ivy Tech College. I make it my duty to break down many of the complexities in math and science that have been plaguing students since the beginning of time. I have over 7 years of teaching experience, and I have taught several middle-school and high-school students math, science and ACT/SAT prep who have went on to make 180 degree turns in their grades under my instruction. And because I have worked with such a vast diversity of people over the span of 16 countries throughout the world, I have developed the patience and understanding that is crucial in producing stellar students. Age has never been a problem with me, as I've helped several post-graduate students straighten out their grievances in math and science.

As an engineering major at IIT, I naturally maintain an ex
emplary study ethic that inspires my students to achieve more. I bring results. I relate to my students by incorporating elements of the things that they like (sports, hobbies, music, etc...) into their most challenging courses allowing them to develop a passion for the courses I tutor. Additionally, I always make a conscious effort to work at each student's own pace and I make it my priority to decompose enigmatic 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 fuel their future academic endeavors. I guarantee quality, commitment, and a passion for training my students to be the best.

I have lived in over 20 countries, which allowed me to speak several languages, and which permitted me to maintain my patience, élan and spirit of enthusiasm when dealing with even the most extreme personalities. I have solid background in both math and the natural sciences, as I have consistently maintained a 4.0 G.P.A since high school. I am now studying mechanical engineering at IIT, and I have gotten 5s in all of my AP Chemistry, AP Physics and AP Biology exams. I have also been the winner of many STEM-related competitions, through my demonstrating of exemplary leadership qualities and through my brainstorming of blue-sky ideas. I am also a "Mental-Math" practitioner, reflexologist and guitarist. I believe that everyone has potential; however potential is worthless unless put in motion. And experts like me value ourselves 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.

View Full Profile

Physics is my favorite subject to teach! I scored a 5 on AP Physics exam, 800 on the SAT II Physics subject test, and I've completed two semesters of Physics at Harvard.

About Simeon
The most important attributes of any teacher are empathy and patience.

I currently attend Harvard University and work as a professional writer and tutor. I've lived all over the United States, although I grew up in Scotland of all places. My scores on the SAT and ACT were perfect (1600 and 36 respectively), though I too had to work hard to get there, so I know what it's like when you're just starting out.

Over the years, I've worked with students suffering from ADD, autism, dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, speech disorders, and depression; I personally grew up inured to social anxiety, so I can always empathize.

Some tutors will tell you that they know all the tricks and shortcuts. But really, there are no tricks. No shortcuts. Just hard work and sleepless nights and talking to yourself while brushing your teeth in the morning
trying to remember the quadratics formula.

*****************************************************

I have a decade of experience and a vast collection of study materials that I can share with you for free. I've had the privilege to help hundreds of students with everything from college applications and essays to Creative Writing and Calculus, not to mention the GRE, GMAT, LSAT, MCAT, ASVAB, and AP and SAT II subject tests, like Literature, Statistics, Physics, Biology, and Chemistry as well.

I absolutely love writing, of course, so I can teach you how to write an action scene or listen to a poem.

During the Summer of 2017, I reached out to Simeon with the goal of boosting my ACT score. Initially, I made a 25 Composite on my first practice test. My goal was to make a 32+ Composite, so I knew that I had a long way to go. When Simeon and I started working together, I'll admit that I struggled a bit. However, I continued to grit through the problem-types that were constantly tripping me up, and shortly thereafter I saw my Composite score approach a 30!
After a few more months of working with Simeon, I got to the point where I was consistently scoring in the 33-34 Composite range and thus decided to take the official exam. The result: a 33 Composite (36 E 34 M 33 R 27 S (I more or less just ran out of steam toward the end))!
I couldn't recommend Simeon or his approach any more if I tried! Initially, I struggled with Math and Science more than anything else. However, Simeon was able to explain Math concepts in a way that were able to stick. And the Science strategies he equipped me with helped me fly through the section, improving my score dramatically (I went from making a 21 on Science to making a 34 -- I didn't do my best with Science on test day, but that one's on me).
As a perfect ACT scorer and Harvard grad, Simeon is able to explain literally every single ACT concept in a clear and concise way to help his students best understand the material. If you're looking to supercharge your ACT score, look no further than Simeon! Not to mention, he's one of the nicest guys I've ever met. I will forever be in debt to him and all of his incredible help!

Simeon is simply the best teacher I've ever had. He has helped me raise my SAT scores considerably. Before Simeon's help, I would score around the low 500's for the math portion, my weakest subject, afterwards I could consistently score a near perfect score. If I don't quite understand something he is willing to take the time to make sure I do and to encourage me during those really tough problems I cannot thank Simeon enough for helping me get into my dream school!

About Albert
I am currently a top tutor at WyzAnt and The Princeton Review, have taught at UCLA (TA), and have 11+ years of private tutoring experience working with tutoring companies in addition to test prep companies. I specialize in tutoring high school, middle, elementary, college, and adult students to prepare them for matriculation to the best universities/colleges/graduate programs and private middle/high schools possible.

Now for the 2018-2019 school year, I stand as one of the top tutors on Wyzant in the U.S. and Bay Area (hours-per-month & rating wise) and have tutored thousands of hours at Princeton Review and over 15,000+ hours at other private tutoring companies, including my own. I tutor thousands of hours every year and am usually in very high demand for both in-person and online sessions.

I currently tutor students from schools a
ll over the Bay Area, Los Angeles, New York, and United States, (both in-person & online), including Mission San Jose, Monte Vista, Dougherty Valley, Foothill, Pleasanton, and more.

I am a test prep MASTER and a full-time tutor for the SAT/ACT/AP, MCAT, TEAS, ISEE/SSAT, TOEFL, GMAT, DAT, OAT, GRE exams (and more!). I have scored in the 99th percentile on many of these exams and my students have all achieved excellent results from my tutoring. I also specialize in tutoring ALL subjects, math, science (chemistry, biology, physics, anatomy/physiology), English/reading/writing.

I have had great success tutoring students in multiple subjects for overall grade and study skills improvement + academic achievement. I currently tutor students of all grade levels, including college students, grad students, and adults.

**LIMITED SPOTS/TIMES AVAILABLE! ** I receive over 50+ teaching/tutoring inquires a day from many sources so I currently only accept students on an application basis depending on availability and other factors. I tutor about 20-30% in-person and 70-80% online at any given time. **

References are available upon request.

~~~ My Education & Credentials ~~~

Growing up in the Bay Area, I lived Cupertino & Fremont and attended Stevens Creek Elementary School and Hopkins Junior High School. I am a UCLA graduate in science and math with the second highest honors (Magna Cum Laude, 10-time Dean's Honors List). I had a cumulative GPA of 3.838 with 265.5 completed units at graduation and was a 10-time Dean's Honors List Recipient. I also was a member of the UCLA Regents Scholar Society, the Alpha Lambda Delta/Phi Eta Sigma National Honor Societies, the Alpha Epsilon Delta Pre-Health Honor Society, and Christian Students at UCLA. I worked as a TA for several undergraduate classes at UCLA, including Education 92F and Life Sciences 2-3. I also have gone through some UCLA and Stanford University graduate-level coursework in science, math, English, educational strategies, and curriculum & instruction.

I have scored at the 98th percentile on the SAT I/II tests and received the highest score of 5 on multiple AP exams (see below for more details) as a high school student, achieving the AP Scholar with Distinction award by the end of my junior year. I have been the recipient of over $350,000 worth of many university merit-based invitational and scholarship honors and awards. Some of the most notable scholarships I have been awarded are the Regents Scholarship from both UCLA and UCSB. Both provided me with a large monetary award (full-ride), priority enrollment, 4 years of room and board, and many other privileges, honors, and incentives.

The SAT examinations that I have scored at 98th percentile or higher are as follows: SAT I; SAT II - Math 2; and SAT II - Biology (M). I also took many AP exams during high school, achieving the AP Scholar with Distinction award by the end of my junior year. Some of the exams that I have taken (with scores) include: AP Physics B (5); AP Chemistry (5); AP Biology (5); AP Calculus AB (5); AP Statistics (5); AP US Government & Politics (5). I continuously study and retake the SAT, ACT, and AP Exams to stay on par with both the big and small changes each year to the exams.

~~~ My Personal Message to You ~~~

One of the wisest teachers once said that poor grades, study habits, and test scores are not life-threatening, but they are college-, job- , career-, and quality-of-life threatening. The most competitive students take a pro-active approaching to academics and tutoring while the least competitive take a reactive approach. All you need to do is watching the documentary 'Two Million Minutes' by Bob Compton to realize why students in other countries such as India and China surpass American peers in almost every subject, especially language (writing, grammar, etc.), math, science, and engineering-related subjects. They attend extra classes and tutoring from 6-7 AM in the morning to almost midnight.

In today's fast-paced and competitive job market, there is simply too much to lose by not investing now in your child's or your education. If a student is struggling, it makes sense to get him/her the help needed so that the time spent in school is worthwhile. Great grades and test scores can open doors that may have been previously closed and are also significant factors when determining scholarships, so investing time and effort now can pay off substantially in the future. Finally, let's not forget the most important part in all of this: the student. The confidence, knowledge, and skills that a student gains through effective tutoring can last a lifetime.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch. Every day spent waiting is another class or lecture's worth of material that you might potentially fall behind or another low quiz/test/exam score that will only make it harder to recover from. I have had too many students who could have received the grade(s) they wanted had they contacted me from the beginning.
