Personal Statement

I am an experienced (3000+ hours) tutor certified in over 30 subjects. I'm a college graduate of Tufts University, Medford, MA and have passed my CBEST having worked with children for the past 15 years. I have taught in all environments in ratios of 1:1 to 8:1. Some examples have included home-schooling, tutoring part-time at Huntington Learning Center and teaching SAT Math and Geometry in classroom environments (Top Learning Center and Perfect Score Academy). I have taken SAT practice tests...

Reviews

My son enjoyed learning from Evan and through it was very helpful. He broke it down in an easy to understand format and gave follow up assignments for the next session.

Evan is working with my son who has high functioning autism. My son does not communicate well, if he does not understand, but Evan is figuring it out and my son is making progress. Thanks Evan!
- Kerri K. from Sherman Oaks, CA
Great lesson with Evan! He was on time, prepared and very personable. He has a plan to prepare my son for the SAT. My son is looking forward to His next lesson!
- Erika R. from Woodland Hills, CA
Evan is very knowledgeable about the ISEE and he made the first session really fun for my kids! Stress-free first session. We look forward to working with him!
- Gretchen G. from Studio City, CA
My son had a very productive and constructive first lesson with Evan last Sunday. Evan went over pretty much every topic on ISEE, explained things in ways easy to grasp, recommended online sources and test prep materials. Everything went very efficiently. Not only Evan dud show professionalism and knowledge, but also is a very respectful and considerate person. He notified us for running later in advance twice before the lesson.
- Sharon L. from Los Angeles, CA
Evan went over tips to approach both sections of the exam when in doubt. We also did sample reading and math problems to practice. The time went quickly and was very worthwhile.
- Louise D. from Stevenson Ranch, CA
My daughter is studying for the ISEE exam and in only two sessions with Evan, she already is making huge strides in math. Being an entering 8th grader, she has not had geometry or trig yet and he is doing an amazing job teaching her these concepts. We are so happy we found him!
- Sharyn E. from Northridge, CA
My son has had his first HSPT lesson with Evan. Julian profoundly appreciates Evan's coaching style. We'll be looking to sign up for more lessons in the near future! Thank you, Evan, for putting a confident smile on my son!
- Cecilia T. from Bonita, CA
My daughter was reluctant to have a tutor at first because she was afraid of being thought of as not so bright. Evan made her comfortable now she is looking forward to the next lesson
- Jen W. from Woodland Hills, CA
We were hard pressed to find a tutor for the ISEE who knew the types of questions and knew the best test taking strategies. He's engaging in his approach and customizes it based upon the need of the student. Highly recommend him for ISEE upper level prep.
- Michael M. from Mckinney, TX
I contacted Evan to help my son prepare for the Catholic High School Placement Test. Evan was easy to contact, prompt for lessons and extremely professional. My son really enjoyed working with Evan and was motivated to prepare for his tutoring sessions. Evan helped him work through practice tests and helped him improve his areas of weakness. When it came time for the real thing, my son was very prepared and did extremely well on the tests. He was accepted to all the schools to which he applied and was granted scholarship money based on his test scores. I have recommended Evan to friends who have children who have to take the HSPT and will definitely have Evan come and work with my younger son. Highest praise for Evan!
- Gia C. from Los Angeles, CA
Evan is such an amazing teacher. After our second session I had more confidence in my math skills. He's very understanding and finds different ways to show you how to work a problem.
- Alyssa M. from Naples, FL
In the first session, Evan took his time to assess the areas in which my son needed to focus for the SAT. He provided a refresher in rusty areas and was very patient.
- Jill K. from Canyon Country, CA
Evan was professional and very knowledgeable. He tutored my 11 grader in SAT math, and really knew his stuff. We will be hiring him again. I would recommend him highly.
- Allison M. from Studio City, CA
I was seeking a tutor on a very short notice to help prepare my 11th grader for upcoming PSAT. I reviewed and emailed a variety of tutors but Evan was the only who responded in a very timely manner. His willingness to come to our location and adjust his schedule to accommodate our needs was extremely helpful. My son benefited so much from the 1 on 1 session with Evan. He went into the PSAT testing with extremely high confidence and feels that he had a greater command of the material than if we attend the Kaplan courses. We will be scheduling with Evan long term to prepare further for SAT and ACT.
- Donald W. from Culver City, CA
The minute Evan arrives, he immediately engages my son and gets him to focus on the task at hand. I am already starting to see better confidence with my son in approaching these exams. We will always be thankful to Evan.
- Annamarie P. from Marina Del Rey, CA
Evan was invaluable in helping my daughter with her college algebra class. In the beginning of the semester she was barely passing, but with Evan?s experience, patience and flexible schedule my daughter ended the semester with a B! I also recommend him as a parent of a student with special needs. My daughter has a speech disability and he was able to make all the material very understandable to her. Evan is the way to go!
- Brittany B. from Belvedere Tiburon, CA
Evan is a great tutor. Besides helping your child learn the material, he has a very amazing way of communicating with them making the learning environment stress free. I highly recommend him.
- Jeanne M. from Granada Hills, CA
On time. Knew his stuff. My son really liked him a lot and he now understands all the material. I would definitely recommend him - especially for Algebra 2 for high school.
- Scot V. from Los Angeles, CA
Evan has been a great tutor. He is very knowledgeable, calm and thorough. He has been flexible with the schedule and has really helped my daughter prepare for the ISEE. Thank you, Evan!
