Over many years it has been a thrill to see my students increase their grades in math, science and English as well as their scores on the SAT and ACT tests. I enjoy seeing students get the "ah-ha" moment when they begin to comprehend.

I am a National Merit Finalist who has tutored and taught classes extensively, including AP Calculus, AP Statistics, Precalc, and Physics in high school, Algebra at Pepperdine University, and Computer Science at CSUN. I hold a Master's degree in Computer Scien...
Kathy helped my son review Algebra 1 for a placement exam he had to take. She only had 3 lessons to accomplish this and he had not thought about math all summer long! Kathy was flexible with meeting times and got him right into review. She was very encouraging to him. She was attentive to his needs. I recommend her for all of the above reasons. I know who to call in the future when my son needs extra help with math. Thank you Kathy for your help.

Our son wanted to focus on SAT strategies (he felt good on the content), so he had several sessions with Kathy leading up to the Test. Kathy's insight and input were invaluable to George, both in terms of practical tips and validating his confidence going into the Test. Her subject matter expertise and Test knowledge are impressive, as is her ability to quickly identify opportunities and address them. Our son has just sat his SAT, and feels very positive about it... so we will see! Kathy comes highly recommended.

Kathy is helping me study for the GRE. Kathy is able to explain any questions that I have about any section.

I am so happy that I found a tutor who is patient, soft-spoken and kind. I think my daughter will slowly improve once she believes in herself and doesn't freeze up during a test.
- Kelly W. from Woodland Hills, CA
We really like her, even though she is a little far from where we live. But the drive is worth it!

Kathy knows the material very well and is great at explaining it until I understand it. Would recommend this tutor to anyone who is looking for help on math. She's great.

Kathy tutored my daughter in math for for her SAT. In a mere two weeks she went over the main concepts she needed, and many helpful tricks as well. Her kindness and encouragement also did wonders for my daughter's confidence. Thanks Kathy!

Kathy was very helpful with my teen in preparing for the SAT/ACT. She was very helpful. Her rates are reasonable and she was very patient. Thank you Kathy.

Kathy is terrific! She has been working my daughter since late last year trying to get her grade up. My daughter loves working with her. She is patient, knowledgeable and skilled in instruction. Since Kathy has started tutoring my daughter in math, she has brought up her grade two levels.
- Kellie R. from Woodland Hills, CA
So very thankful to have found Kathy to help my daughter with her Calculus. She is so very patient to make sure that my daughter comprehended everything being taught to her. Her knowledge is really helping my daughter and I'm now relieved that my daughter is working towards getting a better grade with the help of Kathy! Thank you!

Kathy is an outstanding tutor. She's calm, patient and very knowledgeable. She provides some techniques to help the student understand the principles. She seems genuinely concerned about helping the student do better.
- Cris A. from Canyon Country, CA
My daughter likes her tutoring time with Kathy. She always has a big smile on her face after every tutoring lesson with Kathy. She said I'm in Math Heaven because I understood everything and that I'm going to get an A. She can do her homework in an hour and not hours like before. She has gained a lot of confidence in her ability of solve difficult Algebra problems on her own. Kathy is patient and knows how to simplify math equations and makes it easy for my daughter to understand.

My daughter was given the option to try multiple tutors so she could find one that would best fit her needs. Kathy Z was our first tutor and our last, there was no need to search any further. My daughter is very comfortable with Kathy and feels that she will succeed in raising her scores on her ACT and SAT test. Thank you Kathy.

Right from the start, Kathy Z. made me feel as though I had the ability to become proficient in accounting. Kathy Z. was very patient and did not mind going over material until I grasped the concept. I plan on using Kathy Z. in future courses. I always leave a tutoring session feeling empowered.

Kathy has been so helpful as my tutor! Kathy is very prompt about getting back to you over the phone and makes it simple to set up an appointment. She believes in her students and goes above and beyond to help them. There are few tutors or professors I've come across who are amazing at what they do and who see their students' potential. I am very proud to say that Kathy is one of them. With Kathy's help, I jumped two full letter grades! When I first came to Kathy, I was working with a low "C" in a math class I was taking. Throughout the course and after having completed the final I jumped the 2 full letter grades from a "C" to an "A" with her help! Believe it or not, if you listen and put in the time, you'll see results.

As with most tutors, I expected to drop my kid off and have her get smart and pass classes. Not only did that happen, but we gained a friend and mentor. My daughter struggled in Pre-Calculus and Spanish 2, but she passed them both with great thanks to "Kathy Z". At the end of last year, it was hard to say goodbye. My daughter had grown to enjoy the tutoring nights. So this year with the ACT around the corner, we called up "Kathy Z" and got right back to one on one studies to prepare for the big ACT test. I can't thank Kathy Z enough for all she's done not only academically for my daughter but mentally and as a Mentor, I thank you! If your searching around for a tutor - you've got the best one right here! Don't keep looking, send her a request and she'll get right back with you! She's got hundreds of hours because all the kids love her!

I came to Kathy last minute needing help preparing for a math final. Not only did she make an exception and meet with me outside her usual tutoring hours, but she had her own material prepared for me. She is patient and knowledgeable. I highly recommend her!

I have always had trouble with math. So after doing horrible on my first business calculus exam, I knew I needed someone like Kathy. Let me just say there is nobody like her. She was very patient and understanding. She answered all of my questions thoroughly, while maintaining a positive vibe throughout every session. As I mentioned math is my weakest subject and she somehow made me feel comfortable with it. She was also sort of like a mother figure, making sure that I wasn't hungry, thirsty, was getting my sleep, and eating well. Although these are all good characteristics, what sets her apart from any other tutor is the fact that she is willing buckle down and get every problem done, I AM NOT KIDDING! There was one session where I met with her at 9 p.m after work, and she stayed up with me until 3 a.m! Just so that I get get 3 extra credit points( they were heavily needed). That's 6 HOURS STRAIGHT! What more can I say after that. She is easily the best tutor. She did not get annoyed, definitely a trooper. My grade went up from an F to a C+! Again she is easily the best tutor. Thank you for everything Kathy, I could not have done it without you!

Kathy has been the perfect tutor for my son with preparation for the ACT and SAT, focusing on Math. My son is a good student with the exception of Math. His confidence is low in that subject and he has a lot of anxiety about standardized tests. Kathy has not only helped his skills, she has helped boost his confidence with her understanding and support. I was expecting to be dragging him to every session. But after his first experience with Kathy, he saw the whole situation differently. Kathy has been terrific.

I have only received tutoring in math but the tutoring I have received thus far has been good. She is patient and willing to listen to your individual needs.
