About this tutor

Hello! My name is Carina Lo, and I am currently a senior at San Mateo High School. I have been tutoring students of all ages throughout the last 4 years, and I especially love working with kids. I have tutored in a variety of subjects, including Math, English, Biology, Chemistry, and Chinese, and I am open to tutoring students of any age. As I am still in high school, I am willing to discuss whatever hourly rate would be best for you. I am very amenable to accomodating any requests you may have, so please do not hesitate to reach out and contact me!

My credentials:

I am a high school senior in the top 10% of my class with a 4.22 GPA. I am a National Merit Semifinalist (I scored within the top 1% of the nation on the PSAT), and I scored a 1580/1600 on the SAT (800 Math, 780 English). I have taken AP Calculus AB (5), AP Biology (4), AP English Language (5), AP US History (5), AP European History (5), and AP Environmental Sciences (5), so I can help with any of these subjects. I am also a native Mandarin Chinese speaker. I have recently been accepted to Tufts University, where I will be attending college in the fall. I look forward to working with you!

    Carina Lo is one of the most thorough tutors I have ever encountered in my lifetime! My daughter had been struggling in calculus AB for an entire semester and was ready to drop the course when I decided to find her a tutor. My experience with tutors for my daughter hasn’t always been great as my daughter has a bit of an attitude if I say ao myself. She always seems to push her tutors away and I was ready to give up on her when a family friend told me about Carina. She was a star student in high school and was someone I yearned for my daughter to be more like. I asked to ask Ms. Lo for help with my daughter expecting things to end out like they always did but Carina actually found a way to relate and break through to my daughter, explaining the importance of school and how if she applied herself, she could do great things. That semester, my daughter went from a D- to a B+! If you are unsure about Ms. Lo, just know that she has done wonders for my family and I will definitely be asking for her help in the future for my son Dennis who is turning out to be quite the troublemaker haha. Carina if you see this, my daughter Deandra gives a gracious thank you for helping her turn her life around and I hope that many more may get to experience the gift that is your tutoring.

    Carina helped my daughter so so much! I’m forever grateful for Carina’s help. Krylinn was struggling so much with Geometry at her high school. I’m useless when it comes to math, so naturally i searched for a tutor to help my Krylinn. My other son Kale had a very bad experience with a previous tutor so I was worried, but Carina was perfect for Krylinn! Without Carina, Krylinn would’ve failed geometry, but Carina brought her to an A!!

    Carina helped my son with his math so much! He was really struggling with his Algebra 1 class in high school, but with Carina’s help, little billy was able to get an A in the class! She was so kind to him and very polite to me. I will for sure be using her in the future.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked as a peer tutor at my high school, where I tutored students of every grade in subjects they were struggling with, especially math and English. I have also tutored an elementary school student who was struggling to meet his grade level standards in English, and I am pleased to say that I was able to help him significantly improve his scores.
