Elizabeth is a phenomenal instructor! Both kind and patient, she is incredibly knowledgeable and takes the time to help me understand the nuances of technique or the background of a particular piece of music. I'm nowhere near a natural player, but her approach to structuring my lessons and practice activities fits my needs as a learner, especially considering that I am an adult student juggling a myriad of other responsibilities. Elizabeth is adept at tailoring her lessons and long-term approach to my growth as a player to my skills and challenges, so that I not only immensely enjoy the experience, but also feel the growth I am making each and every week. She's the best I've ever had!!

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

Noah was very patient and made both of my granddaughters feel comfortable. They really liked Noah and expressed their enjoyment of the sessions. I stayed out of sight in order not to distract but close enough to hear interaction with lessons. He works really well with children and is very encouraging throughout the session.

About Michi
Despite all the knowledge they may have and all the "how-to" information at their fingertips, many people live their lives as if they were powerless and completely at the mercy of external circumstances. It is true that there are many things that we cannot change. However, even if our circumstances remained the same and the only thing we were able to change was our minds, it could open up a whole new world of opportunity. That is the core reason I decided to become a coach. My name is Michi and my mission is to help individuals become aware and make use of the one, incredibly powerful tool everyone has at their disposal: their own mind.

I earned a B.A. in Philosophy, an M.A. in Psychology, and am currently pursuing a doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology. I also have a background in music. My approach to coaching is heavily influenced
by all of these disciplines, but what makes it unique is that it looks at self-development through the lens of creativity. More specifically, I view the process of pursuing your goals and navigating life's challenges primarily as a creative one. To me, the creative process is a cycle of goal-driven work, creative breakthroughs, and creation (bringing your vision into reality). In music, this might mean noodling around on the piano until you come up with something you like and turn it into a song. In life, this might mean thinking about what you want and what you can do to achieve your goal, and then taking the necessary action steps to succeed. Regardless of the scenario, I view the creative process almost as a natural law: If you put in the work, you will have breakthroughs and you will bring your vision into reality; it is simply a matter of time, discipline, and perseverance. Thus, much of my work with clients revolves around fostering their trust in the creative process.

Practically speaking, this means that, within the context of assisting them with their individual needs, I intend to help all clients:
(1) Shift from an "I can't" mentality to a "how can I?" mentality.
(2) Get to a place where achieving their goals becomes a matter of "when," not "if."

About Mikayla P.

About Mikayla
Hello! My name is Mikayla Pacheco. I have been a private tutor for 2 years, teaching a variety of subjects. However, my strongest subjects are English Literature and Composition and United States History. I have graduated high school in the Top 10% with a GPA of 4.8. I also earned passing marks on the AP Tests for English Lit, World History, and Government and politics. Currently, I am attending San Jacinto College for my basics and plan on transferring to Southern Methodist University, where I will double major in English and Political Science. I am also a professional actress and singer.

As a tutor, it brings me great joy to help other students reach their full potential in their academics. I love teaching and I encourage students to ask questions when they need help. I am patient and understanding when it comes to learning and I am w
illing to work with your student(s) until they feel 100% confident in whatever they are studying, learning, or writing. I hope to create a fun, efficient, and comfortable learning experience and look forward to potentially teaching your student.

As far as what to expect in lessons, it will vary depending on the student. I like to first get to know the student and figure out what they need or want to learn. From there, I will teach them what they need to know and help them prepare for quizzes, tests, and essays. After their assignments have been graded, I would like for the student to share these grades with me so we can figure out where we need to improve and thus ensure the student is always learning what they need to learn to best excel in class.

I look forward to getting the chance to teach your student and help put them on a path of success. If you have a questions, please feel free to contact me. My preferred method is text or phone call, however I do check my email frequently.
