Welcome to our network. We are a group of elite in home tutors in the Redondo beach and Torrance areas. We also do in home tutoring for algebra, Chemistry, and other K-12 subjects in Palos Verdes and Manhattan Beach.
The tutors in this network each have a great skill set for tutoring, and most importantly the right personality for the job, including lots of patience and positive energy. Each can explain difficult concepts in easy to digest ways. Each is great with connecting with students.
If you'd like to learn more about the tutors click on the names you see linked to the left for their full profiles.
My name is Joseph Tillotson. From 2004 to 2007 I was a faculty math tutor at Marymount California University in Palos Verdes. My specialty was in helping special needs students with math. I found that I really enjoyed working with them and 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 and so had to have material explained differently. 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.
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 as the student is figuring out a concept. An instructor's quiet encouragement will also bolster the confidence of the pupil. A tutor lacking in these communication skills can have the opposite effect. I highly encourage anyone reading this 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 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 of them.
For algebra tutoring in Torrance or Redondo Beach Carolyn is a great choice. She does all K-8th subjects and is especially adept at English and math courses for the Torrance and Redondo Beach areas. She lives in Lomita and will travel to nearly all South Bay cities.
