I'm Joseph Tillotson and I'd like to welcome you to my web site. You'll find some amazing tutors here; they were each carefully screened and chosen and I'm honored to be in this network with each of them. I was on the Marymount College Math Faculty from 2004 to 2007 and tutored several hours per week in the learning center during this time....either one on one or in small groups. I learned quite a bit about one on one and small group tutoring and especially enjoyed working with special needs students.

I often had trouble focusing on what teachers were trying to explain while I was in school and know how difficult it can be when a student's brain learns slightly different than others. Often when someone explains it well and in an encouraging way it can make a big difference.

**NEW**..."Should I take the SAT or ACT?" Victor is an SAT tutor in Redondo Beach. He will meet with your student and provide a diagnostic test specially designed with problems from both the SAT and ACT. It is no stretch to say he is one of the top SAT prep specialists in the country.
