Subjects  I tutor all levels of math, arithmetic through calculus:
Elementary arithmetic, Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, Algebra II, FST (Functions, Statistics, and Trig), Math Analysis/Precalculus, Trigonometry, Calculus, AP Calculus, and Statistics.  
I've worked with all age groups, from elementary school children through adults returning to college.

Test Prep I also do test prep, including but not limited to SAT, AP, CSET, CBEST, GRE, GED, TEAS, and college-placement exams.  
I have particular experience with the CSET exam.  I teach a workshop for the multi-subject math CSET at the Orange County Department of Education.   I've also passed all three single-subject exams myself and have since created my own materials to help other students do the same.   See my CSET page for information and helpful resources.

Rate  I charge $60 per hour.  Students in the same class are welcome to split the hour.

I tutor in my home in Aliso Viejo, within walking distance of Aliso Viejo Middle School, and within a few miles of the following high schools: Laguna Hills, Mission Viejo, Aliso Niguel, El Toro, and more.    You can Google map it here.   If you can't make it to me, Facetime, Skype, and Google Chat are also options.  I can also make video solutions and post them on YouTube (see below).  Hooray technology!

Qualifications  I've been a full-time professional tutor since 2004.  I first started tutoring at UCI's learning center, teaching calculus to small groups. I graduated from UCI with honors, majoring in biology and minoring in math. I then went on to enroll in UCI's teacher credentialing program, intending to become a math teacher. And while I loved math and I loved teaching students math, the 40 to 1 student to teacher ratio simply did not suit my style of teaching. My mentor teacher suggested I tutor, and I've been doing just that full-time ever since.    
Over the years I've also been privileged to conduct CSET test-prep workshops for the Orange County Department of Education, briefly teach secondary math at Gorman Learning Center charter school, and collaborate with Teach for America.  I absolutely love what I do, and I hope to help with whatever math goals you may have.
Video Solutions/Video Archive  If you have particular problems you'd like to see worked out, send them to me and I'll create a video solution.  It's my ongoing project to create a video archive for students to reference.   My archive is small now, but please check it out to see if anything I've already made can help you.  Email me for details but basically I charge my normal rate of $30/half hour.   It's just as if you were showing up for tutoring, but now you get a permanent copy you can watch anytime from your own home!
