My name is Joseph Tillotson and I am the creator of South Bay Tutors. While on the Marymount College Math Faculty I tutored one on one and in small groups in the learning center. My specialty was special needs students who had a lot of trouble learning math. While other tutors sometimes got frustrated or didnt know how to get through to these students I actually enjoyed working with them. Perhaps because many past teachers had difficulty getting through to them they tended to be extra appreciative of the help they recieved and this felt very good to be a part of.
It was also in 2004 that I started tutoring students on my own in the cities of Redondo Beach and Manhattan beach. That first year was one of learning for me; learning how to communicate difficult math concepts, and learning that many tutors are not effective. I sought to learn what makes one tutor effective and another not effective.
There were many factors such as explanation skills, knowledge of the subject, and overall personality. A person who is empathic and patient by nature will often help by simply knowing when to teach and when to be quiet as the student is figuring out a concept. That tutors quiet encouragement will also bolster the confidence of the pupil. To learn more about my journey as an educator you can click my link to the left.
Chris and Paulina are available for in home tutoring for math and English in Redondo beach and Torrance areas. Paulina is perhaps the most emotionally nurturing tutor I've ever worked with. Chris is our history AP tutor for Torrance and can do European and US history courses as well as help prepare students for the AP exams coming up in a couple of months.
Robin and Victor are available to do in home SAT tutoring. Robin was trained by the Princeton Review and has a personal score in the top 1%. Victor is a highly trained SAT specialist who knows the SAT inside and out. He is able to help students decide if they are better off taking the SAT or ACT. I've worked with Victor and Robin for 8 years and have had only excellent feedback for each.
