Academic Tutoring for Math and Science
In our view, the most important question for parents to ask is this: "Who will be the person teaching my kid?" Our competitors hire college students and train them, whereas we only hire long-time teachers.
Steve Anderson is our science guru, and Whitney Niceswanger is our math maven. Scroll down to see their bios, locations, and pricing.
Steve: Born and raised here in San Diego, I’ve been fortunate enough to spend most of my life in this beautiful city. I am the proud father of two well-rounded college graduates, and two of my favorite activities are surfing and snowboarding with my kids. I enjoy running trails, playing and watching all kinds of sports, reading, listening to music, and playing guitar. I like crossword puzzles, and since I try to tune in to Jeopardy at 7:30 p.m. whenever possible, I guess you could consider me kind of a trivia geek.
After graduating from Santa Clara University, I earned my teaching credential at University of San Diego and then taught mostly science courses for 31 years, including biology/AP Biology, chemistry, anatomy & physiology, and physics. I have a master’s degree in educational technology and 3 teaching credentials: life sciences, chemistry, and physics.
My favorite part of teaching is working one on one with students. The most rewarding aspect of teaching is determining where a student is falling short in his/her studies and then working together to gain a solid understanding of concepts with improved results. Many former students have told me that I have the gift of making complex scientific concepts easy to understand and creating a fun learning environment.
I can help with Biology (AP), Chemistry (AP), and Physics (AP 1/2).
Science tutoring with Steve is $100 per hour. He meets with students in our Sorrento Valley office.
Whitney: I came to San Diego to attend USD, and still haven't found a reason to leave! After receiving a bachelor's in chemistry and minor in mathematics, I worked in biotech for six years. Eventually, my love for academia sent me back to school and to SDSU, where I earned a master's in mathematics. Since then, I have been teaching math at local community colleges, and recently finished a micromasters in statistics and data science.
I love to see students have breakthrough moments and realize they can excel at math. When I'm not geeking out, I like to travel, rock climb, or just go to the beach and play with my two dogs.
I can help with Core Curriculum Math, Algebra, Geometry, Math Analysis, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, Linear Algebra, and
