MatthewI attended Delphi University for my bachelor's degree in math. I can tutor students in any level of math from elementary school to college level, but I specialize in math education. I actively seek out ways to help students understand complex topics, and I understand what is expected of students from Common Core. As a math tutor, my priority is to help students fully understand topics as well is why things are the way they are. I enjoy helping students work through difficult problems, because I enjoy helping students develop problem-solving skills while I perfect my own. When I have free time, I enjoy astronomy, statistics, and baseball.

JenniferI attended Northern Arizona University for my bachelor's degree, and also graduated from a Montessori teaching school. I'm certified as a teacher in Arizona, and I'm intimately familiar with Common Core standards and the expectations the state has for its students. I currently work in a public school teaching English language development. I have seven years of experience as a tutor. I'm looking forward to helping students succeed in English as a second language, writing, reading, essays, literature, English grammar and syntax, public speaking, study skills, and elementary level math. When I have free time, I like to raise chickens, run my organic clothing business, and contribute to the community garden.

HannahI'm originally from New York City, but I moved to the West Coast to study English at Pomona College. I completed my bachelor's degree there, and I also earned a physics minor. After I graduated, I taught English in Korea, which I did to learn about the new culture and to see if teaching was the right career path for me. I enjoyed this experience so much that I became a math teacher when I moved back to New York. I spent three years teaching math at the eighth grade and sixth grade levels in New York City before moving to Los Angeles. As a tutor, I really enjoy the individualized approach. I can work with one student and guide them with questions to help them develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Along the way I will explain topics as needed to guide the student down the proper path. It's great to show students what they're capable of! I'm also very familiar with the math standards of Common Core, so I know what is expected of students in the classroom. I've many teaching and learning strategies I can show students to help them learn effectively. Outside of math, I also really enjoy helping students improve their writing and reading skills, particularly academic essays. When I have free time, I like to read, study the Spanish language, play chess, and ride my bike.
