About Me

Experience Summary

Hi there. Thank you for stopping by to see me. I want to let you know that, if you want to make all of your classes go easier, I am here to show you how. I have developed a way to teach you how to learn with more ease. So you spend less time worrying and fighting the assignments and more time enjoying what you’re learning and more free time to do other important things. My system has taken me 25 years of teaching to develop. I had to observe carefully what works with students as applied within the various subjects, I have successfully taught hundreds of students, both here and overseas. I am committed to giving my students the best tutoring. I believe there is more than one way to explain math concepts so that if a student doesn't grasp the way it is presented in class, I can find an alternate way of explaining it. Math can be fun! I am also a student again myself as a senior math major at CSUN with references from five of my professors. So I know clearly what you experience on the "students side" of the classroom. I will add my math degree to my computer science degree, which I have also taught with great success both here and abroad. Even some of my fellow classmates come to me with many things they don’t understand, and I enjoy helping them too. I am available to teach all grades up to university sophomore. If we don’t make a good match, there will be no charge for the first session. Let’s meet! Online Tutoring: I usually use Skype. I have white boards installed in my home office like a classroom. In Wyzant site they have a white board application and I use it with the students from that site. We can use any other programs like FaceTime. Availability: I teach everyday from 12 - 11 PM Pacific standard time. As more students join the availability changes, Please refer to Wyzant site for my available time. I try to keep it uptodate. Fee: My fee is $45 per hour. Payment methods: Venmo, Paypal, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express.

Teaching Style

My teaching style is very simple and straight forward. When I work with students, by observing them to solve problems I can tell where they need help. I have tutored more than 1000 students and more than 100 students online as of today 11/21/2017 and all have passed with B and up.
