« Maya is a very smart young woman. I was very excited to hear that my former student got into Stanford University. She is a great tutor, and a great friend. She used to help her friends in class write scholarships and make a college list. I remember that during the first week of school she helped Christina find a topic for her personal statement. I recommend Maya because she loves helping others and is a great student. Good luck Maya! »

Long Beach Stanford Tutor for College preparation in science (environmental science as well), math, college list optimization, and essay brainstorming.

Methodology

I give lessons to highschool students, as well as incoming college freshman. I like my lessons to be fun and informative, but it also depends on the subject. I like students to understand the how and why of the material, not just the answer. I will suggest materials that I believe are helpful at the end of the lesson so that you can improve on your own time as well. For college preparation, my aid is to help you jumpstart your application process, not to do it for you. I will help you optimize your college list, and help you prepare the topics for your essays. I hope that I can help people prepare for highschool and college.

Background

I am an environmental and earth Science student at Stanford University. I have been tutoring for 3 years at my highschool, and helped my peers get through the college application and preparation process. I have taken 34 units of science courses in college, including physics, chemistry, biology, geology, and hydrology. My favorite subject is environmental science, urban agriculture, and environmental stewardship. I attended the top magnet school in California, California Academy of Mathematics and Science.

Maya is a very smart young woman. I was very excited to hear that my former student got into Stanford University. She is a great tutor, and a great friend. She used to help her friends in class write scholarships and make a college list. I remember that during the first week of school she helped Christina find a topic for her personal statement. I recommend Maya because she loves helping others and is a great student. Good luck Maya!
