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

*Cancellation Policy: At least 24 hours notice or charged for full session

My Real Estate business runs on computers. My assistant skills were not great. Daniel turned up, on time, listened to the problem, sat down with J, my assitant, and, voila, problem solved.

About Yuexin
Hi! I am an undergraduate student at Colorado College, majoring in Comparative Literature and Music. I am from Shenzhen, China, and moved to the U.S. when I was 18.

I play the banjo, do all forms of arts, and have a never-dying crave for traveling. I lived in Brazil and Finland for a little while. I have a talent in learning new languages and am passionate about teaching them.

I have taught Chinese to people of all age. I specialize in teaching listening and speaking. If you would like to take lessons with me in person, then I am good at teaching reading and writing as well. My strength is in my patience for my students. I understand that learning a new language, especially Chinese, is not an overnight progress. As a language learner myself, I emphasize with the frustration, yet the excitement of learning the language and the cultu
re.

So trust me! Let yourself or your child be in good hands.

I'm really enjoying my lessons with Yuexin. She's very patient and is able to answer all my questions. She's also happy to customize the lesson to suit my interests; for example, we took some time to go over voice lines in a video game that were in Chinese and then work on the pronunciation and pinyin for them.

The textbook and workbook she had me get have been helpful, and I've been supplementing by practicing on my own using Duolingo. I think the combination has been really effective for learning the language. Yuexin has been great for correcting my pronunciation and teaching me how native speakers would actually speak and write.

Yuexin is an excellent Mandarin teacher for kids. My 8 year-old has started lessons and is progressing well. Yuexin researched and picked out a good textbook for kids. She is patient, clear, and easy to schedule with. We are happy!

Hello, I'm a medicine student at Venezuela which is why I know about anatomy, organic chemistry and biology very well, but I also know about music and painting, the reason I don't have a background check is because I really don't have the money to pay for it, but I can promise you I'm very professional and I'll do my best to teach your kids, I do this so I can pay for my medicine career, so I'll be glad if you want to study any of the subjects that I teach with me.

About MOHAMED
I am Mohamed ,22 years old, electrical engineering graduate. This is not the first time I am teaching online . In fact , I have been offering online lessons since late 2016 . I thought languages such as Arabic and gave few physics lessons but now I want to focus on mathematics as I have seen many of my students in physics struggle with basic algebra. I am planning to pursue a masters degree in cybersecurity therefore I am not just going to teach you mathematics I will also give you real life applications of mathematics so you can see the beauty of what you are learning and guide through pursuing a fruitful career in engineering if you wish to . Thank you for your time and I am looking forward to working together!

Mohamed is a very patient teacher . He helped with my maths and physics through junior high. His techniques made me establish strong and profound skills in logic and mathematics and right now I can study independently with no outside help . I went from F grade to A in just three months .

About Karen
I am a classically trained pianist and certified elementary school teacher. I graduated from Oakland University with a Bachelors of Music in Piano Performance and Bachelor of Arts in Linguistics..

I believe that every learning experience provides students an opportunity to not only learn a hard skill, like piano and math, but also to learn the soft skills such as time management, discipline and motivation.

My students can expect to improve week to week in their piano or math classes. My goal is not just to teach you how to play piano or to do math. I would like to guide you through the journey of learning and help you explore all the interesting things in music and math.

I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied classical piano for 16 years. I can teach students to read music, improve aural sk
ills and pursue classical excellence. I can also help students to prepare for exams and competition.

I am also an elementary school math tutor specialized in the Texas curriculum. I have taught 5th grade for 2 years, and near 90% of my students passed Math STAAR test despite the fact that the school average was in the 50% range. 90% of my students made growth when I was their Math teacher at school. I can tailor our lessons to meet your needs and prepare you for middle school.

Your growth is my source of happiness. Hire me today to embark this wonderful journey!

About Vicki
Biology is everywhere! It is much more than what is in a textbook or in a lab. I want to show you how biology impacts the world around you and how you impact biology!

I have taught college biology for eight years. I have taught Introduction to Biology, Microbiology, Physiology and Introduction to Experimental Biology. I have taught Introduction to Biology to both science majors and students who have never had biology and will have that biology course as their only science course during college. I want to teach you how to think critically and evaluate what you see.

I will make sure your foundation is strong and well understood before I add on a new concept. Biology seems scary to a lot of people. But, really, the main reason it can be scary is because it is a new language. I try to not use words without explaining what they mean. If you
understand the language, then biology is much less frightening.

I want to teach you the language of life and I hope that you will be able to see that the living world is as amazing as I think it is!

Hi! My name is Katelyn Raimond and I am a senior studying Cell and Molecular Biology on the Pre-Med track at the University of Rhode Island! I am also currently an intern at Rhode Island Hospital in the Division of Infectious Disease and I hope to one day become a doctor of internal medicine and pediatrics specializing in infectious disease!

Besides my academics, I am also a resident assistant at URI in Butterfield Hall. This position has allowed me to make several connections and has shaped me into the extremely personable, patient and determined individual I perceive myself to be! I hope you choose me as your tutor and I can't wait to see where this position takes me!
