***DOING ONLINE LESSONS ONLY*** I have Masters in Maths and I am Former Head of Mathematics of a high achieving school. I have been teaching and tutoring for the past 20+ years. I teach Math up to AP level and have had great results always. I have also been an examiner for UK International and OCR examination boards for Math exams. The best part of my job is making Maths enjoyable and accessible to my students. It is hugely rewarding when your students achieve their potential grades and progress to the next stage of their academic life. I am very passionate about my subject. Before teaching, I worked as a Senior Analyst Programmer in a Software house specialising in Banking software. Please note that I only tutor online as I need all my resources to deliver a lesson that meets my expectation and yours!
I take great pride in being a lifelong learner. Since early childhood, I have benefited from the good fortune of being around others who have inspired me to learn by wondering about the world around me. When I first meet your student, we will spend a few minutes talking about what they are studying, what is challenging them in that course, and what interests they possess. Every aspect of our culture from entertainment to the sciences has a story. Helping a student focus on those stories can provide them the boost they need in subjects like History, American Government, and several others across the typical, 6-12th grade social students curriculum. I also have spent more than 20 years working as a broadcast journalist, taking complex informational chaos, and transforming it into informative conversation. If you are struggling as a writer or public speaker, I can help build your confidence. No matter what subject I assist you with, I intend to help you grow as a critical thinker. Almost every subject we encounter in school and every challenge in life requires the essential art of critical thinking.
In my past tutoring experiences, I have worked with student who are worried about being sent to summer school because of a looming F, only to have them raise their grades to Bs and As. For many of them, I have witnessed them develop a keener interest and mastery of a subject that once made them feel isolated, intimidated, and terrified. Let me help light your path through a touch class.
My teaching perspective has always been growth mindset. I have spent my tenure focusing on bringing up my students to grade level and beyond. I have seen 500 point increase in math SAT scores in my students. I have been instrumental with my students that were lagging behind their class surpass their class. I enjoy helping my students succeed beyond their own expectations of themselves.

Experienced Online English/Writing Coach and Tutor
Students from 6-18 years have benefited from my in-person and online tutoring since 2018. It’s been my joy to support them with homework, test prep, reading comprehension, grammar, ESL, and test prep including SAT. I’ve also helped those with ADHD. My love of writing began in high school as the editor of San Francisco’s Cathedral High School newspaper. It continued throughout my higher education at San Francisco State University--ultimately leading me to become a published author. I am also a professional editor and writing coach.
I am not just an English/writing tutor, but I studied leadership development, communications skills, time management, and emotional intelligence for years and I taught these and other skills to adults in the SF Bay Area for 20 years. As a private tutor, I bring all these acquired talents to my online tutoring.
What is my philosophy?
Mistakes are opportunities for learning and change, they help us, rather than hinder us. I encourage rather than discourage while seeking creative solutions to problems or issues encountered in the learning process. Excellence is accomplished by practice, hard work, cooperation, communication, support, and a bit of grace!
Personalized online tutoring can produce great results! The experience of working with a private tutor can be amazingly productive! I can help with homework, essay composition, public speaking, SAT and test preparation, ESL, ADD and ADHD issues. As a writing and English tutor, I use a combination of Google Docs and Zoom or FaceTime or just phone conversations with Google Docs. I love to be of service to parents and their children, as well as being a trusted resource for teachers and school counselors.
The Simon Family Testimonial
My two boys (ages 10 & 13) have been working with Polly twice a week via Zoom since April. Polly is caring, kind, flexible, and calls upon them to be their best selves. She has been working diligently to find gentle ways to overcome their resistance to writing. I love that she has a different approach for each student, and does research to find materials and methods to bring out their interests and motivation. We feel very lucky to have found her. She cares deeply and it shows!

Hi! I am a current sophomore at one of the top 10 universities in the country studying Sociology on track to graduate Summa Cum Laude. Before this, I graduated high school at the young age of 15 where I also led National Honor Society, won a multitude of academic awards, and graduated with 9 Advanced Placement courses and a 4. 1 GPA under my belt. Having been accepted to some of the top universities in the country, I can say confidently that I am well suited to tutor you or your student. I have over 5 years of experience speaking Spanish and have been teaching it to students aged 6-15 for the last year. As far as Mathematics go, I passed the AP Calculus exam with flying colors, and am currently taking a college-level mathematics course. I may not have experience teaching Calculus but am very capable of doing so with my extensive history volunteer tutoring in geometry and elementary algebra that I will be able to translate to a more advanced math subject.
Being a tutor and a supplemental instruction leader for the past three years (at Student Center for Academic Achievement) and going to monthly training meetings, I have learned to quickly get the tutee comfortable and gauge their needs to tailor a specific way of tutoring. I believe in challenging yourself and understanding the core basic concepts. I take this same friendly yet motivated attitude to my tutoring sessions to help students achieve their goals academically. Through experience, training, and being a student myself, I have a good grasp at study schedule management and know the importance of different learning tools. Tutoring is a passion of mine and I plan each session ahead of time to cater the student's needs such that the student can get the most out of each session. I'm a fun-loving and confident person who believes that learning should be fun and so I try to make each session interesting. What I love most about tutoring is that both the tutor and the tutee learn during each session and help each other grow. I love to help students achieve their goals and the spark they have once they grasp a concept.
I have had an interest in science since I was 8 years old. I always read on recent research papers since high school. What makes me a good science tutor is the experience as both: a tutor and a student. As a student I know how to study for science topics and how to knit all the things we learn in this subject together. During my undergraduate, I was able to get an A on every science class and graduate as a Summa Cum Laude along with got great reviews from my tutees. I believe that each person has a different perspective and I tailor my tutoring technique to that perspective as well as add a newer one.
