We have been using Tutisto for well 2 years now and couldn't be happier with the expertise and quality of the tutors. I have two teenagers who consider their tutors friends as well as their tutor. We tried other tutoring places and did not see results until we tried Tutisto who understands not all students learn the same way.Jun 14, 2018
I absolutely loved my tutor from Tutisto! I would definitely recommend using Tutisto to anybody. I was always excited for my tutor to come and work with her because she made hard subjects easy to learn. My tutor was always on time, knowledgeable in all subjects, and made studying so easy for me. She even brought her own worksheets that pertained to the subject I was learning so I would be able to get more practice than in a classroom or studying by myself. My tutor taught me techniques for studying and learning difficult material that I still continue to use in college. I cannot put into words how much Tutisto helped me succeed!May 12, 2018
Paulina has been the best tutor I've ever worked with- she has been working with me on my independent math class and is able to work with me in a way that I understand and even enjoy the material. Could not recommend moreMay 11, 2018
My 10th grade daughter had a wonderful Tutisto tutor, Paulina, for Math Analysis (pre-calculus). My daughter attends a highly-rated charter high school but we opted for her to take online Math Analysis via Laurel Springs under Paulina’s guidance. My daughter looked forward to her weekly 1.5 hour sessions with Paulina. If she had questions during the week, my daughter would text Paulina who responded immediately. Paulina kept me informed of my daughter’s progress throughout the year. Paulina is exceptionally organized, responsive, smart, patient and communicative. We are very grateful to have found her through a friend and will continue to have her tutor Calculus next year to augment the high school teacher’s lessons. My only regret is that we didn’t find Paulina earlier, as we would have hired her to help my daughter learn geometry in 8th grade!Jun 14, 2018
“Paulina is truly an exceptional tutor! This could end up being a very lengthy review...She worked with my daughter during her last year year of middle school and hopefully will continue to assist her in high school if tutoring is needed. Paulina tutored her mostly in mathematics and science ,but also assisted her with other challenging subject matter as well. Paulina is very bright indeed but is also kind, warm hearted, and naturally intuitive. She was able to tune-in to what my daughter needed consistently. Whether study breaks were needed, emotional guidance if frustration levels were high with the subject matter, or simply a change in venue...Paulina knew how to tackle the specific challenge. Paulina is a true gift to the teaching profession. My daughter and I feel so blessed that Paulina has been there through the challenges of a highly academic middle school.”May 28, 2018

- How did you get started doing this type of work?Paulina is originally from Mexico. She moved to San Diego in late 2008, and she didn’t know practically any English when she arrived to this country. Having experienced firsthand the pressures and complexities of learning concepts in a foreign tongue, Paulina became a fierce advocate in encouraging others to overcome similar obstacles. Since 2014, she has been assisting students from diverse cultural backgrounds with their varied learning needs on a spectrum of subjects within the Math, Physics, Chemistry, English, and Spanish disciplines; she has since continued with private one-on-one tutoring sessions in West Los Angeles, including homeschooling and after-school lessons, tailored to each student’s needs. Paulina discovered that this was her passion. Once people realized that, she quickly found herself with more clients than she could accommodate. As the saying goes: people don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. To keep up with growing demands, she decided that she could use some help… A San Diego native, Greg Dunn is known amongst the team as the web-wizard screenwriting behind the scenes. Greg brings on board a background in business communication and philosophy, armed with a vibrant work ethic and an entrepreneurial spirit that guided him to the voice-over industry. Navigating through the hiccups and pitfalls of modern voice-over business models, he is also the founder of VoiceBid, a competitive online marketplace that connects voice-over talent to business. Greg met Paulina in high school; they moved to Los Angeles in late 2014 and together launched Tutisto. Through Tutisto, Paulina and Greg’s mission has been to create a close-knit band of tutors who offer a fusion of high intelligence and integrity in order to create a tutee-friendly environment that guarantees sustainable success. This has ultimately become the foundation of Tutisto’s company culture, centered on its five primary values: credibility, integrity, quality, ease of use, and inspiration.
