My name is Joseph Tillotson. I began giving math lessons as a faculty member at Marymount University in Palos Verdes from 2004 to 2007. Many of my students had special needs. It was great to see their confidence grow once they had better explanations of the concepts they were studying.

I make a point to find tutors who are patient, empathic, and fun! A person who has these traits will often help by simply knowing when to teach and when to take a step back and let the student figure things out. I've observed that a student and his/her tutor much be in synch for progress to occur.

For calculus tutoring in Torrance or Redondo Beach Matt is an excellent educator. He does all physics, chemistry and calculus and other math courses. He is patient and brings a lot of humor and wit to each lesson.

Alida is our Spanish tutor and language expert. She tutors AP Spanish in Torrance, Palos Verdes, and Redondo Beach. She also does Spanish AP exam prep, college applications, ESL tutoring, and English tutoring. With 2 decades of LAUSD Spanish teaching experience and a great deal of traveling under her belt she knows the Spanish language and culture better than just about anyone. For college applications it would be hard to find someone better. She is a gifted writer and editor. She knows what colleges are looking for with these essays and can help students to write a great one to send out.
