## Great Tutor

Steven, 13 lessons with TohoruSeriously great tutor, helped me through calc 2. Always willing to expand on and explain any concept that I needed help on and also managed to make calc more enjoyable and grounded than most other teachers I've had. I doubt I would have been able to pass calc 2 with the grade I did without his help.

### Bio

I am a MIT graduate, and have been a math tutor/teacher for the last 16 years. I have taught or tutored all levels through Calculus BC & College Calculus -High school, middle school and college. My experience includes being a faculty math teacher at the NOTRE DAME ACADEMY (High School), a home-school tutor in math/honor Chemistry through the LAUREL SPRINGS program, an instructor for the JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY/SYLVAN AIIY program for gifted children, a teacher at MULHOLLAND MIDDLE SCHOOL, an...

I am a MIT graduate, and have been a math tutor/teacher for the last 16 years. I have taught or tutored all levels through Calculus BC & College Calculus -High school, middle school and college. My experience includes being a faculty math teacher at the NOTRE DAME ACADEMY (High School), a home-school tutor in math/honor Chemistry through the LAUREL SPRINGS program, an instructor for the JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY/SYLVAN AIIY program for gifted children, a teacher at MULHOLLAND MIDDLE SCHOOL, an instructor for PRINCETON REVIEW & COMPASS EDUCATION, as well as being a in-home math tutor for numerous students from HIGH SCHOOL: Harvard-Westlake, Marlborough, Windward, Campbell Hall, Beverly Hills High, and COLLEGE: USC, Purdue University, Columbia University, Cal State Long Beach, Santa Monica College.

I am very good at focusing on the particular needs of each individual student.

I am patient, relaxed and truly enjoy this work. In addition to my engineering degree, I also come from 2 previous generations of world class science/math academics from both sides of my family (My dad was a MIT professor).

Also having been a professional actor during this entire time, being an educator in math/science has turned out to be a most rewarding and satisfying parallel career, especially given my background. I also believe that my acting background has helped me immensely in relating to kids both challenged and gifted in math.

Here are samples of what parents and students have written about me:

-"Tohoru has an amazing way of connecting with both of my kids, He has made math more understandable and has certainly taken away the apprehension. He is so patient and really makes each session effective and enjoyable. Nick is doing noticeably better in Math and most importantly doesn't fear or hate it anymore. (Parent)

-"They look forward to it because they enjoy him and his style...Tohoru has a great sense of humor, is kind and makes learning easy. He speaks to the boys on their level but never speaks down to them. He gives the

## Great Tutor

Seriously great tutor, helped me through calc 2. Always willing to expand on and explain any concept that I needed help on and also managed to make calc more enjoyable and grounded than most other teachers I've had. I doubt I would have been able to pass calc 2 with the grade I did without his help.

Steven, 13 lessons with Tohoru

## Great teacher

My daughter who is in honors geometry had an online tutoring session for her final exam and found him very helpful. Tohoru was patient and assured her that there were no stupid questions.

Sharon, 1 lesson with Tohoru

## great tutor

Tohoru taught my daughter precalculus. Although the session was late at night he held her attention and helped her understand difficult problems. He is very knowledgeable and patient. We will be continuing sessions weekly as she likes working with him so well.

Emma, 5 lessons with Tohoru

## Fantastic

Tohoru is a great math teacher (tutoring in Geometry Honors). Very patient, thorough, and professional. Explains the concepts clearly. Super helpful. Thank you!

Kafi, 15 lessons with Tohoru

## Passionate，knowledgeable and inspiring mentor and tutor

Tohoru has been a massive help to my son in his mathematical endeavors on AMC 12. He really knows how to teach well and makes sure that my son fully understand the concepts before moving on.Tohoru is a very passionate and energetic math teacher and his lessons are never boring. My son said he has learned a lot from him and wants to continue to learn more and more from him. My son has made a lot of progress since he took lessons with Tohoru. We highly recommend Tohoru if anyone either wants to improve math or seek some challenges in math.

Mary, 18 lessons with Tohoru

## Very happy to have found Mr. Tohoru!

Mr.Tohoru is very engaging,patient,collaborative and an awesome Calc BC tutor for our daughter. She has really taken to his teaching and finds his approach very dynamic and uplifting! She looks forward to the lessons. Highly recommend. Thanks for being a great partner in helping her achieve her goal.

SIMRAN, 18 lessons with Tohoru

## Excellent tutor

Tohoru is an excellent teacher. My son who was a solid B student now has 95% in Algebra 2. He’s punctual and communicates well.

Zoya, 13 lessons with Tohoru

## Patient, friendly tutor with expert knowledge

We worked on homework for our honors precalculus course. This is an extra-challenging course that goes beyond typical precalculus material and topics; homework is rigorous! Tohoru was really knows the subject, but he is also patient and easy to relate to. We got a lot done in a relaxed, stress-free way.

Lisa, 1 lesson with Tohoru

## Excellent ! Personable and Patient

First session with my son tutoring him in calculus went very well. Very warm, patient, and knowledgeable! We will have him come again in a few days. Lots of material to review! Recommend highly.

Deborah, 6 lessons with Tohoru

## Deliberate and amazing!

We do not have enough accolades to praise the professional guidance and care Tohoro gave to our son this past year. He is a quiet math powerhouse with a special gift of guiding his students to a clear understanding. He helped bridge thenchallenge of the basic calculations to the more thoughtful theorems in AP Calculus AB. Leaving the class with a 98 and a strong positive feeling about his AP score has given our son and our family every reason to book Tohoro for next year’s AP Calculus BC class knowing we are in the best of hands. We have given out his name to others with the same positive results. He is the best.
