Qualifications & Experience

I have over six years of tutoring experience, specializing in college preparation, math, science, and the humanities. I have worked with students of all ages - middle school, high school, and college - and also have experience working with special needs students.

I graduated from Mission Viejo High School with a full International Baccalaureate diploma, ACT score of 35 (SAT equivalent of 1560), and a 4.89 GPA. I am a Regents Scholar at UCLA, an academic scholarship awarded to the top 100 students of each incoming class, as well as a UCLA Alumni Scholar. I also tutor for the MCAT - I received a score of 519 (98th percentile).

Often there is a disconnect between the teacher and the student, which severely impedes learning and comprehension. As a tutor, it is my job to bridge this gap through understanding the unique learning style of each individual student. I also firmly believe that there is not enough emphasis on understanding material - students are often required to memorize information without a fundamental understanding of what they are memorizing, which can be detrimental in analytical subjects such as math, chemistry, and physics.

Adam worked with my son in pre-algebra and algebra 1. He made things clear and understandable so that my son could get an A.

We hired Adam to help my son prepare for the ACT. We are definitely seeing tangible results, and my son's practice scores are noticeably better. Adam is a patient and knowledgeable tutor and we could not recommend him more.

Adam and I worked together on AP Biology. I hired him right before my AP test. I feel well prepared after working with him and am confident I can get a 5.

My daughter had sessions with Adam for one year for her algebra 2 class. We are very happy with the results. Adam is professional, friendly, and efficient!
