About Patricia M.

San Pedro, CA
View Full Profile

The ACT English Test consists of 75 questions to be answered in 45 minutes. The questions are multiple choice, and they measure an individual's knowledge of English grammar, usage, sentence construction, punctuation, organization, and style. I like to use the most recent guidelines available when tutoring my students for test preparation, so I will be using the Princeton Review's Crash Course for the ACT, 3rd Edition, as a main source for studies and question and answer sessions with my students. I supplement this with AP English exercises to ensure that my students have a solid base from which to answer test questions. I alternate between verbal and written exercises to keep the process interesting and relevant.

About Patricia
As a child I watched from the doorway as my older sister took her piano lessons. From that experience I taught myself to play the piano. My formal training came in college where I received my BA in Applied Music in piano and voice. I studied classical music and opera from a visiting professor from Peabody Conservatory, Baltimore MD. I graduated with honors and gave my Town Hall performance in the Spring of my Senior year. I had a passionate desire to be involved in music, to hear it and to perform it. I spent several years singing with the San Diego Opera Company, performing lead roles in Musical Theater and soloing in concerts from Monterrey to San Diego, CA. While still a student in college, I taught piano to children from the local community, so I have accumulated decades of teaching experience. Nothing brings me greater pleasure than
to see individuals "blossom" into their creative selves. Whether it is for a student's own enjoyment, audition preparation, recital performance or ongoing piano or voice development, I am committed to engaging you in an experience of learning and fun. It may be the biggest thrill of your lifetime!

*** Lesson Details ***
I love to have fun. For me, learning is a great source of fun. My goal is to make the process of your learning music fun while effective. I do have high standards for participation. I do not ask anything of you that I haven't done myself. I know, from many years of experience in performing and teaching, what it takes to make progress in a learning curve, Are you excited? Are you dedicated? Are you willing to jump in and get busy? I will give you the foundation of theory and technique to support your performance. I will expand your understanding and appreciation for music in its many styles and formats. No every other week or schedule as you go lessons, please. 

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room - Steinway piano, cathedral ceilings ... good acoustics.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Must have piano or quality keyboard. I definitely prefer piano.

*** Specialties ***
I was trained classically in both piano and voice, but spent many years in musical theater and singing in supper clubs, as well. I am capable of teaching most styles of piano and voice except rock and rap.

i recently came out of an audition and I sang my musical pieces better than I've ever done them before! The auditioner sat me down at the end and said he loves my voice. He said, based on how much he liked my pieces and how well I did that he would like to extend an early invitation for callbacks for the program! I really have Patricia to thank for that. She has helped me improve my voice by leaps and bounds in the time that i have been working with her and its amazing to get such immediate and rewarding results. I CAN NOT THANK PATRICIA ENOUGH! SHE COULD NOT HAVE PREPARED ME ANY BETTER AND IM SO GRATEFUL THAT I GET TO WORK WITH HER!!

I will help you strengthen your knowledge foundation and teach you techniques to improve your test-taking performance.

About Fiona
I view teaching/education as my calling, by that I mean it is a profession that deserves life-time effort and dedication. I ascribe who I am and what I have accomplished to my parents and all my teachers. They instilled knowledge, the skill to learn, and the moral compass in me, which transformed me into an independent and contributing citizen who knows how to and when to make the right decision. I feel that to do the same as my teachers did to me is my responsibility to younger generations.

I hold a Ph.D. in chemistry. With a strong academic background in science and math, I have successfully helped many students improve their academic performance in math and science through tutoring.

In recent years, I have also tutored students in standardized exams. My expertise is MCAT chemistry and physics, SAT, GRE, and GMAT.

I can hel
p you achieve the score you need to enter your dream school.

I can provide one-to-one private tutoring according to your study needs or small group classes.

As a student preparing for college, I scored in the 99th percentile on the ACT.

I have over 5 years tutoring for ACT preparation. I have a vast amount of materials that aid in lessons and regularly review the exam, in order to stay current with any changes in the test format.

I will help your son or daughter achieve their score through a variety of techniques, tailored to their needs, that I have fine-tuned during my years of experience with this exam.

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

Yoichi's first review left for Gina: Thank you, Gina! I enjoyed talking with you very much. I was a little nervous before my first web lesson started, but you were so friendly and kind that I felt relaxed. You gave good advice. I'll try to learn hard by next time!

Now over 2 years and 100 classes later, the reviews are still great, though more technical... Great lesson! Thank you, Gina! Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the speeches! I forgot to ask which is correct, the position of "[...]", which means omission, right after the sentence as in S. Thurlow's transcript, or right before the sentence as in E. Roosevelt' transcript?

I've been working as a tutor for 10+ years, specializing in math and science subjects at the high school and college level, as well as standardized test prep. I understand that every student has a different learning style, and will have different goals for our work together, so I develop a tailored plan during the initial meeting. My style of teaching is based on scaffolding my students, providing information when necessary while also encouraging them to take ownership of their part in our work together.

About Anthony
With 10+ years of tutoring experience under my belt, I've developed a teaching style that is supportive and compassionate, but also no-nonsense. I help students work to the highest level of their capabilities, providing expert knowledge and encouraging them to be active participants in their learning.

I have a BS in Biology from the University of Minnesota as well as an MD from St. George's University. Given my background, I'm very comfortable tutoring in the areas of math and science. In addition, I have received specialized training on prepping for standardized tests such as the ACT, SAT, GMAT, and MCAT and can help students navigate the ins and outs of these challenging exams.

I am an incoming junior at Harvey Mudd College. I am majoring in mathematical and computational biology. I have been tutoring students (ranging from elementary school to high school) in various subjects for 6 years now. When I was preparing for the ACT myself, I went over almost all of the past tests and have found tactics that helped me on the test. I have a lot of experience working with students with different learning styles. I would love to share my experience with students preparing for this standardized test.

About Sophia
Hi there! I am majoring in mathematical and computational biology at Harvey Mudd College. I love studying the sciences because it's exciting to learn how things work and to logic things out. I love working with others - I have been tutoring students (ranging from elementary school to high school) on various school subjects for about 6 years now.

Music is another huge part of my life: I have been playing the piano for 14 years and the violin for 8 years now. I am currently a violinist in the Pomona College Orchestra. In 2014, I was invited to perform at Carnegie Hall after my participation in the American Fine Arts Festival. In high school, I placed either first or second on solo, duet, and ensemble competitions in various competitions held at places such as Diamond Bar High School and Chapman University. Through these activities, I prac
ticed on persistence and patience. Teaching experience wise, I have taught piano for 3 years before.

Additionally, I enjoy actively participating in my community. In high school, I was really involved in the American Red Cross and Key Club. In college, I am still finding joy in volunteering in different organizations on campus. I also enjoy other activities such as reading, meditation, theater, tennis, rock climbing, and ballroom.

I work with people according to their personality and the way that they learn best. If I were given the opportunity to tutor your student, I would make sure everything is clearly explained because I hate memorizing.

I look forward to sharing my passions with you!
