« Ray has been tutoring my daughter for over 3 months now and we have seen a great improvement in her math grade. I had tried three tutors before I found Ray and I am so thankful that we did. I explained to him that my daughter was having a difficult time in her Algebra class and that I was having a hard time explaining it, as it is the new common core method. I mentioned to him that my daughter is very shy and I wasn't sure he would get her to talk much but to my surprise, he really has done a great job in getting her to talk through each math problem. He engages my daughter and encourages questions especially when he suspects she isn't really sure on a particular math problem. I can't give enough praise to Ray; he is always on time and gets right to work, he never leaves unless he's sure my daughter understands the math lesson. My family and I are very pleased with the progress my daughter has made and we would highly recommend Ray to any parent that needs a math tutor. »

Receive math and Spanish tutoring from someone you'd least expect: a professional rock bassist. Available in the Antelope Valley, Valencia, Santa Clarita, and Caustic.

Methodology

Hello, my name is Ray Biggerstaff. I primarily tutor high school and college students in any level of math or Spanish. I use a white board when I tutor so the student can see the examples as they are worked out. I am very passionate about and fascinated by mathematics and Spanish, as I believe any tutor/teacher should be with the subject that they tutor/teach.

Background

I have been tutoring for six years, both privately and with businesses. I would estimate that I have tutored 50 students. I have a high success rate with my students. I bring them to better understanding, and in turn, their grades go up. Most recently, a student of mine was able to stay in the advanced course after tutoring with me.
