Henry Z.

Rancho Palos Verdes, CA

About Hrant

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, and I am very experienced. 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 more than a year training in a psychiatry program, so I utilize psychological principles when teaching. I also work very well with those who have learning challenges, such as ADH
D. Currently, I am unlicensed to practice medicine.

*** Lesson Details ***
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. My experience with people in medical settings and in psychiatry gives me an edge to do this.

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!

Mauricio is a very talented musician. He's friendly, punctual and professional. He's always more than happy to answer my questions. He was also very patient when helping me choose a guitar for my father. Mauricio is currently teaching my father how to play a Nylon Spanish Guitar (beginner). My father loves his lessons with him and always looks forward to the next one. As of now, he's only had 4 lessons, but he's already more confident. I can also see how much my father has learned and improved in such a short amount of time. We will definitely continue guitar lessons with Mauricio and I would recommend him to any age group.

Mauricio has been a perfect fit as a guitar teacher for my ten year old son who, until meeting Mauricio, was totally apathetic about learning an instrument. The list of discared wood winds, strings, & percussion is long... Now my kiddo looks forward to his lessons because of Mauricio. He practices (during the week!!!), and he walks away from his time with Mauricio with the kind of happy grin on his face typically reserved for video games and nachos. Mauricio is ever punctual, solicitous, accommodating, friendly, and kind. We feel very lucky to have him in our lives and couldn't recommend him more highly to others.

Public Speaking · In studio
If you have an issue with regards to your confidence when it comes to speaking in public, fear of maybe being misunderstood due to pronunciation of words, and how to create a proper presentation, then this person is whom I would recommend. I remember having all of these issues before joining his class. After all the sessions, you yourself will feel that growth in all of those aspects and the class was seriously entertaining too! The way he lectures in class will make you eventually think that doing presentations and speaking in public will eventually become a "walk in the park" with enough exposure and practice!

Joshua has been a coach of mine for many years. He has helped me build my public speaking, business, and poker proficiency as well as countless personal and professional skills. Joshua has an uncanny ability to make difficult concepts easily understood which has enabled myself to perform at a higher level in a myriad of subject matters. If you are interested in learning a new skill or further improving your expertise in a particular area, I could not recommend a better person than Joshua.

I owe all of my poker success to this man! From a very young age, he taught me the game. Showing me the importance of being patient, awareness, and how to play the player in front of you instead of the cards in your hands. I would extremely recommend taking this course to any serious poker player who is looking to improve their game in any way!
