I, highly, recommend her for all of your math tutoring needs, but especially for statistics. In my case, I needed to complete a graduate level statistics class, and I hadn't attended a math class in over twenty years, much less a statistics course. Julia was very patient and supportive in assisting me to understand probabilities, hypothesis testing, linear and multiple regressions, and time series forecasting. The outcome of our tutoring sessions together resulted in me achieving an A in the class.

We have been very blessed by inGenius! Our daughter was struggling with precalculus , and with the help provided by our inGenius tutor- she is improving her grades each quarter. She is a more confident student. We are very pleased with the professional way Paula handles her business. The billing system is user friendly and she gives a detailed description of what is going on in the tutoring session. Paula is very approachable, if I have a question, she gets back to me very quickly. We are planning to continue our relationship with our tutor and inGenius for the remainder of this school year and beyond.. If I could ask for anything, it would be meeting locations closer to central Concord.

Dave the Math Tutor

    Dave helped supplement my calculus 3 course and he is very knowledgeable in this advanced subject. I have had four tutoring sessions with him so far and will continue to have them with him till the end of the semester. What went well is that he is very clear in his descriptions of the subject matter that we are describing, and as we go over examples he clearly sees mistakes that I make.


    I'm passionate about the success of my students. I believe in second chances as I received one and I would like to help students get a second chance to succeed.


    I have tutored for over 12 years in the greater Granite Bay, Roseville, Rocklin, Citrus Heights, North Highland, Fair Oaks, Gold River and Folsom areas. I tutor multiple subjects - all math level including Calculus AB/BC, AP/Honor physics, AP/Honor chemistry, SAT and ACT. I have a B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from UCLA. I am very strong in math. It is always better for you and your pocketbook to get help now instead of waiting until it is too late and you are in college. I can bridge the gap by providing you with the help you need to succeed. Please allow me to serve you and help you gain knowledge and confidence in math and physics.

    I offer private tutoring in a variety of subjects: English (reading, writing, grammar, and phonics), SAT and ACT prep, and German. I am credentialed in both English and German. Although I was raised in the US, my mother is a native German, and my family speaks German at home. Therefore, I have been fluent in German my whole life. I also love knitting and have sold many of my items. If you are interested in learning a new and very satisfying hobby, I can teach you! I enjoy working with students of all ages, from elementary school to college and beyond.


    I am an experienced collegiate tutor who wants to help students read and write with more confidence and academic accuracy. I do not write essays for people, I give them the tools to create better essays for themselves. My greatest joy is to see students enjoy and improve in a school subject they struggled with before their tutoring sessions. I have a Bachelor's Degree in English and I love passing on the knowledge of how to communicate on paper. My goal is to help students read and write as my full-time career.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    How do you study for the SAT?

    Your SAT prep strategy can mean the difference between a great score and a mediocre score, as well as the difference between being accepted to or rejected by your school of choice. The Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) is a college entrance exam that measures a student’s knowledge and understanding of what they have learned up to this point in school and what they need to succeed in college. In addition to arming students with the knowledge they need to excel in the math, reading and writing components of the test, SAT prep can help improve scores by teaching students crucial strategies for taking the test itself. Professional SAT prep tutors can work with students one-on-one or in group sessions. Typically, tutors recommend that students who are comfortable and caught up with their regular schooling begin SAT prep at least three months before the test. If you’re targeting an elite school, six months before the test is a good time to begin. Students who are behind in school are advised to start early to ensure they’re caught up and feeling confident in all the relevant subjects. Suggestions for long-term SAT prep include taking challenging high school courses, completing all homework assignments, preparing for class tests and quizzes, and participating in class by asking and answering questions. There are free SAT prep training tools online; for those who’d like a one-on-one tutor to take them to the next level, the national average rate is $70 per hour.

    When should you start preparing for the SAT?

    It’s never too early to start preparing for college entrance exams, but professional tutors recommend a baseline of at least three months before the test. The Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) is the gold standard for college admissions, and SAT prep is important for doing well. Your child’s SAT scores will have a major effect on which colleges send acceptance letters. Professional tutors can work with your kids to coach them on how to take the SAT, as well as studying the actual academic content. Doing well on the SAT is as much about knowing the right test-taking strategies as about having a firm grasp of the subject matter.

    To understand your student’s readiness for the SAT, they can take the pre-SAT (PSAT) starting in their sophomore year. SAT prep can be structured around the student’s PSAT scores, so tutors can address any challenges and weak subject areas. If your child has their sights set on an Ivy League or elite school, SAT prep with a tutor or study program should start at least six months before the test. Vocabulary is a key element of the student’s SAT preparation and success. The national average rate for SAT prep tutoring is $70 per hour.

    What is in the SAT test?

    As your child is preparing for the SAT, it’s helpful to know the specifics of the test. The Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) is made up of three main categories and one optional essay. Students have a total of three hours to take the test, with an additional 50 minutes for the optional essay. In total, there are 154 questions. During SAT prep, it’s helpful to take timed practice exams to understand how you’ll do during the actual test. Here is a brief overview of each of the four categories:

    • Reading: 65 minutes with 52 questions. The Reading test measures command of evidence, words in context, analysis in history and social studies, and analysis in science.
    • Writing and Language: 35 minutes with 44 questions. The Writing and Language test covers the same topics as Reading, as well as expression of ideas and standard English conventions.
    • Math: 80 minutes with 58 questions. The Math test looks at the student’s understanding of algebra, problem-solving and data analysis, and advanced math in the context of fluency, conceptual understanding, and applications.
    • Essay (optional): 50 minutes with 1 essay. The essay will demonstrate the student’s competency with writing, analysis and reading.
