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.
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.
College Prep diploma from Desert Christian High School (4.03 GPA).
Currently enrolled as an Applied Studies Major at Azusa Pacific University Online College.
High School Math & Spanish tutor at Glendora Learning Center for two years.
College Math tutor at Azusa Pacific University's Math Center for two years.
College Math & Spanish tutor at Azusa Pacific University's Learning Enrichment Center for two years.
Math tutor at Escuela San Francisco de Quito for two months (a school in Quito, Ecuador).
Private Math & Spanish tutor for six years and ongoing.
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.
