A.J. Moorehead - Tutoring and In-Home Instruction

for an education tailor-made in L.A.

The development of students is the most important duty a society undertakes. For it is the quality of this development which determines the richness of that society's art, the cohesion and equitability of its laws, and the wisdom of its defense. Yet this duty is also a profoundly difficult one, for no two students are alike.
 

the student comes first

My educational philosophy draws on the project of Dr. Howard Gardner, Chair of the Department of Education at Harvard University.  His research over the last 20 years has uncovered eight "areas" of human intelligence: verbal/linguistic, logical/mathematical, bodily/kinesthetic, interpersonal, intrapersonal, naturalist, musical/rhythmic and visual/spacial.  In short: the mechanisms we use to understand the world are nearly as variable as the subjects contained within it.  Short of a highly specialized institution, a one-on-one instructor is the only thing that can tailor a lesson to a student.

In-Home Service for all needs


As an experienced college instructor, I know firsthand the quality of work that produces high marks.  I offer individual instruction, ideal for home-schoolers, undergraduates, online school attendees or any student looking to improve or get ahead.  You may request individualized lessons or simply help with assignments and concepts.  My knowledge of the following subjects is at your disposal:
  • Mathematics from arithmetic through Calculus
  • AP European and AP US History
  • AP Government
  • Statistics
  • AP English (Language & Literature - includes literary analysis)
  • Film
  • Rhetoric
  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Physics
  • Debate
  • Public Speaking
  • SAT, SAT II and ACT preparation
I welcome your correspondence.  All consultations are free.  I look very forward to hearing from you!
