Welcome to South Bay Tutors. We are a group of elite in home tutors. Our main areas of focus are Torrance and Redondo Beach, as well as Palos Verdes and Manhattan Beach. The subjects we cover include all of the K-12 classes, as well as common core, and many college subjects.
WHat makes our network different from the many other tutoring companies is the quality of tutors. Each has an engaging personality, great explanation skills, and the instinct for teaching thta many tutors lack. Each can explain difficult concepts in easy to digest ways. The bottom line is that anyone can be a tutor, and with this network I make sure only the very best are allowed in and stay in.

My name is Joseph Tillotson and I began this network 12 years ago. At the time I was on the Marymount College Math Faculty in Palos Verdes. My specialty was in helping special needs students with math. I found that I really enjoyed working with them and found that I had a knack for explaining difficult math concepts. These students often had learning issues, and I had a few with autism. Teachers and books were failing them. They simply learned differently. They had to have material explained in a different way for it to make sense. I enjoyed tailoring my approach to fit the needs of each of my students while there, and now do the same with my own students. One fo the reasons I feel I am successful at tutoring and at finding effective tutors is because as a student I had trouble understanding my teachers and the books. It was when someone would explain it to me it would finally make sense. With a good tutor I could learn in an hour what otherwise would have taken several. It is this efficiency in learning that I seek to provide with my own tutoring and in matching families up with the other tutors.
I make a point to find tutors who are patient and positive by nature. A person who has these traits will often help by simply knowing when to teach and when to be quiet and let the student figure things out. I highly encourage you to be selective in your choice of a tutor. Ask questions, make sure the tutor's personality is good, and make sure your student is happy!
Each tutor's profile can be seen linked to the left. As a general rule tutors for K-7th grade tutor everything; while for 8th grade and beyond they are specialized by subject.
Robin and Victor are the test prep specialists or our network. Victor can help a student decide whether the SAT or the ACT is the best option. His personal score is in the top 1%, and it is always a challenge to try to find an SAT problem he doesn't know. Robin scored in the top 1% of his SAT test and knows it inside and out as well. Victor is trained from two high profile SAT prep companies, while Robin is trained by the Princeton Review for SAT prep in Redondo Beach and Torrance. Both tutors are great for college application essays as well. Each offers much more than you would find even with a high level Kaplan or Princeton Review Tutor for in home prep in Torrance or Redondo Beach. Each was a high level tutor for a company like one of these. They have been trained and now have several years of experience on their own to add to it.
