Hi everyone! My name is Edan Gold and I am currently an honors student majoring in Mathematics at Los Angeles Valley College. I was a math instructor at Mathnasium prior to joining the team here at Danny’s Tutoring. I love math because of the many shortcuts that can be used to solve problems in a quick and simple way. I enjoy finding new ways to master difficult concepts, and I’d love to help you with all levels of math ranging from basic arithmetic all the way up to Calculus 3, as well as introductory statistics courses. I can also help you prepare for the math sections of the ACT, SAT, and CHSPE. Outside of school, I enjoy hiking and skiing and believe that being in nature is a great way to clear your mind.

Ellie

Tutor

Hello! My name is Eliana Serpas but you can call me Ellie. Currently, I am a Business Accounting Major at Pierce Community College. My educational plan is to receive an Associates Degree from Pierce to then work towards my Bachelors Degree and Masters Degree. As an accounting major, math is one of my strongest subjects. All four years of highschool, I took math classes and finished my senior year with Precalculus. Although I am bilingual and proficient in Spanish, my first and fourth year of highschool, I took Spanish 1 and Spanish 2. Besides math and spanish, I dedicated my highschool career to orchestra and band. I love music! I’ve spent the majority of my time throughout highschool helping other students during all of our rehearsals and became section leader within my second year. After graduating, I took a small volunteering job at Van Nuys Middle School as the music teacher’s assistant. This motivated me to help other students outside of my age range and has brought me here! I enjoy helping others and seeing how everybody can learn and grow in any subject. I look forward to sitting with you and guiding you through any problems you may have!

Gaby

Tutor

Hello! My name is Gaby Menashe and I am a graduate of Loyola Marymount University. I earned a B.A. in Political Science with a minor in History, which means I love all things related to social sciences. This love allowed me to become very involved with politics and law in numerous ways: I have worked in Los Angeles courthouses as a judicial intern as well as student worker for the District Attorney’s office, I was invited to a recent Democratic Presidential Debate, and eventually, my academic efforts took me to England in 2019 to work in the House of Commons for a Member of Parliament. My education has afforded me a number of opportunities and I am excited to work with your children to not only tutor them, but to serve as a mentor that can help them recognize their potential!
I have experience working with elementary school-aged children with special needs, as well as middle and high school students who need help with any social science or humanities (AP level included). As a prospective law school student, I am also very familiar with admissions processes and would be happy to mentor your student through college admissions! Aside from academics, I enjoy podcasts and music, traveling, and cooking.

Hannah Foligno.jpg

Hannah

Tutor

Hi everyone! My name is Hannah Foligno, and I am a recent graduate of UCLA where I obtained a BA in English Literature. During my time as a student, I worked at Pierce Community College as an English and Italian tutor. As a tutor, I provide an easy-going learning environment where students are encouraged to ask questions when they feel stuck and hopeless. Most of all, every student is different. The most important aspect of tutoring is to listen to each student to better fit their individual needs.  Every student is capable of so much more than they think, and it is always my goal to provide and encourage the confidence that is needed in order to grow in a subject. With that said, I can tutor K-12 in writing, reading, composition, and grammar. I also specialize in college admissions and personal statement tutoring. Besides English, I can tutor in all subjects K-8 as well as high school Algebra 1, Biology, and Chemistry. When I am not tutoring, I love writing, watching movies, making my own films, and doing anything that involves the ocean. I look forward to working together!

Kylie Naveau.jpg

Kylie

Tutor

Hi there! My name is Kylie Naveau. I grew up going to public school, juggling school work and competitive gymnastics. At that time, gymnastics was my life and in order to pursue this passion, I also had to do well in school. Because of my busy schedule, I learned effective ways to learn and study that resulted in excellent results. In high school my favorite subjects were science, math and history. To this day I still love learning about all of the amazing aspects of our world and how it has shaped our lives today. When I went to college, I understood that my skills in math and science could help me learn more about people, so I decided to study kinesiology, the study of human movement. I graduated from Boise State University in 2017 with a BS in Kinesiology with an emphasis in health education and promotion. I have, henceforth, gone on to become a yoga instructor and physical therapy aid as well as received my CBEST to substitute teach grades K-12. In my spare time I like to read, spend time with 6 nephews and nieces, and go to the beach. I also love to study french so that I can better communicate with my family in Belgium and France.
