Our Tutors

Dave Corona

Los Angeles, CA - English and Elementary school Math
I am a CRLA certified tutor with an Associate’s Degree in Child Development and a multiple subject Bachelor’s Degree from Fresno State. I like helping children understand what is too hard for them to understand. Many children have the will to do better in their subjects for school, but do not know where to begin. They are lost in a sea of blah. They do not understand what they are doing now because they did not understand where they strayed from knowing in the beginning of their studies. They do not know how to go back and learn the fundamentals essential for understanding today. So they give up because they do not know how to continue learning step 10 when they do not understand step 1. This is where I come in and help the student understand how to do better by learning the fundamentals, first.

Bryan Flores

Los Angeles, CA - Math (STEM) & English
I've been with StudentNest for more than 3 years and have worked across many of the company's platforms: web/content development, online tutoring, placement/home tutoring, but have mainly worked at camps and halls. I excel the day-by-day balancing of groups vs individual tutoring and have worked well with students across the spectrum of delayed to ‘on-track’ behavioral and educational backgrounds.

Sandra Grindle

Plano, Texas - English, Advanced Placement, SAT/ACT prep, academic writing
I have taught 30 years in Texas public schools, 12 in a private school for gifted students. I am now a resource teacher for an online school, but working for StudentNest gives me the opportunity to continue to teach a wide variety of students.

Jerry Kelly

South Whittier, CA - Critical Thinking, Language, Geography, English, Math
I like how tutoring keeps me honest about what I think I know and what I can offer to students. What I have found enjoyable about StudentNest is how we both accommodate and challenge each other’s flexibility in our relationship. Outside tutoring I enjoy immersing myself in the operations of various production workers with an aim to helping businesses resolve the challenges of meeting their shifting goals.
