Hi! My name is Maya and I’m a junior at Scripps College studying Mathematics and Computer Science (through Harvey Mudd College). I’ve worked many tutoring jobs over the last 4 years in a variety of subjects including SAT prep, math, coding, and French. These jobs have been with a wide range of ages from elementary to high school students.

I have a lot of experience with standardized testing and love tutoring for the ACT, SAT, and PSAT, especially the math section. I scored a 36 on the ACT, 1540 on the new SAT, and was a National Merit Commended Scholar for my performance on the PSAT.

I am also happy to tutor in any math subjects! In college, I have completed math courses through Calculus III, Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, and Discrete Math and my experience in these advanced classes can add an interesting perspective to high school courses like trigonometry or calculus. I also love teaching the foundations of math to younger kids taking classes such as algebra or geometry!

My tutoring style is student-focused, and I am happy to adapt my tutoring to match a student’s learning style. I always strive to bolster students’ genuine interest in subjects because it makes school fun and motivates students to learn!
