Alan began tutoring me for College Algebra at Moorpark College in October, 2012 when I was really struggling and not sure I would get a passing grade. We met a few times a week until the final exam. Because of his patience and help, I was able to get a B in the class. When I began Calculus in January, 2013 Alan and I met about once a week throughout the semester. I was able to ask questions and complete all of my homework and projects that were assigned each week. I received an A in this class. Alan is very kind with a great demeanor and was always happy to answer questions and go over material more than once to be sure I understood. He is a reliable, intelligent person with a good sense of humor.

Our daughter has only done one session with Marissa at InSight so far but we are thrilled with how it went. We thought we were hiring an SAT tutor but Marissa is so much more. She is very experienced in the whole college application process as well and is coaching our daughter on how to apply for -- and get accepted to -- her favorite schools.

Vania is an excellent Spanish instructor. I've taken many Spanish lessons that have ranged from various software programs to personal tutors. Vania is great. She knows how to relate with each person in order to convey concepts. She's the best I have worked with. She's also very accommodating, since I tend to change my schedule around a lot. She is always flexible to accommodate. Vania is simply great.

Udo is an amazing tutor. He tutored me for two very different classes. One was a first quarter physics course, and the other being a discrete mathematics course. He always hit the nail on the head with explanations and examples that really helped me succeed in both classes. He broke down complex physics problems into very simple and memorable steps and took confusing math concepts and made them easy to remember and execute. On top of that he is super friendly, nice, and very compassionate to make sure there's an great understanding of the material at hand. I wouldn't be the major I am today without him.

About

As an MIT graduate and current physics teacher, I want to help people transform their lives, and I want to see you accomplish more than you can on your own. I have lots of math and science experience as well as test taking. If you need help applying to college, have questions about elite universities, don't understand math, or just need a refresher on a certain science topic, I am the person for you. I feel that I am a kind and open person; you shouldn't be afraid to ask questions! Furthermore, I feel that a lot of people avoid getting a tutor because it is too expensive which is a shame; everyone should have the opportunity to get help if they need it regardless of socioeconomic background. I have scouted the professional private tutoring field to get a feel of the price ranges and I try to give lower rates than other professional services. If you choose me as a tutor, I will work my hardest so that you receive the best deal around! :)

About

I am offering my services as a seasoned one-on-one SAT tutor. My qualifications: I have a bachelor's degree in Economics from the University of Maryland. For two years during college, I tutored students taking Intermediate Macro and Microeconomics. Before moving to California, I worked as an after school tutor for the Baltimore City School System. I've also been a tutor here in Santa Barbara for two years, making this my fourth year of test-prep tutoring. In my experience with major test prep companies, I have found that SAT tutors generally receive about ten hours of training and teach dogmatically from a set curriculum. This amount of training is inadequate and the curriculum taught is too rigid to allow for the realization of maximum potential in a student. A student needs an instructor that has worked through a multitude of test questions and has independently developed multiple strategies for approaching even the most difficult SAT questions with confidence, comfort, and ease. It is a source of personal pride for me to say that I have worked through the vast majority of test prep material on market and separated the quality training material from the fluffy dross that populates the bookshelves at your local bookstore. I have developed my own style of SAT training that is custom tailored to every student. In just a few hours, my students command a complete understanding of the test itself and many strategies used to improve (and later perfect) overall scores. From there I focus on building skills quickly and effectively through intense "answer and review" sessions that improve scores every single lesson. Every student has strengths and weaknesses when it comes to taking the SAT. Our goal together will be to identify weak points quickly and to fill in those gaps with directed practice. The rates I offer are quite reasonable and I teach from many convenient locations in the Santa Barbara area. If you are interested, contact me via email or phone and I will schedule a time for us to meet. Also, find me on craigslist.
