About My Education Guru
MY Education Guru aims to provide an innovative, inspiring, and illuminating learning experience for students of all educational needs to excel in academics, grow as individuals, and achieve their goals and aspirations.
INNOVATION | INSPIRATION | ILLUMINATION
My Education Guru believes all students are unique in their own way. They can be athletes, volunteers, or swamped with extracurriculars, but the one thing they all have in common in this increasingly competitive environment is a lack of time. Can you blame them? Our students have to balance time between school, family, friends, sports, and plenty of other activities. As Gurus, we pride ourselves in creating innovative learning plans that are efficient and effective tools to help students reach their academic and personal goals.
My Education Guru understands that during this journey to college and beyond, every obstacle will be an emotional roller coaster. Let us inspire and guide your student to pursue their passions without the fear of failure. We are your student’s safety net when times get rough and their propellers when times get exciting!
We acknowledge that the path to success in school can become an overwhelming and daunting task. There are so many options and so many challenges to overcome. Whether it is choosing between choice A or D on an SAT question, understanding and constructing audio speakers for a Physics project, or picking the right college, our Gurus are here to illuminate your student’s path so that each step is easier and each decision is clearer.
"My guru was very thorough and went over any important concepts over again. Also when it seemed like I didn’t understand a topic, he made sure we went over it until I did. He also was very entertaining and able to captivate my attention."
– David Monuz, Student Athlete

Founder of My Education Guru
I first started coaching students in my old neighborhood library in Artesia, California where the students not only came in to see me for math help, but also as a source of refuge from the neighborhood. We would spend hours sitting and reading Goosebumps or learning how to add and subtract numbers. Most importantly, I spent a lot of my time listening to my students and helping them value their education. When I left Artesia to attend UCLA in 2012, I made sure we kept in contact and I am glad to say that when I graduated in 2015, some of them were following in my footsteps.
After I graduated, I spent some more time back in libraries with students as I began to find my joy. I began to work with unique student who were very talented, but just needed some guidance with their ADHD/ADD. I even had the chance to work with students with autism and asperger’s where I learned some of the most important lessons about being a coach and a friend: patience and compassion. I even had the privilege of helping my students get football scholarships and full-rides as national merit finalist. In the time I have been a coach, I have learned we are not just an academic safety net or propellers, sometimes, we are the ears and voice of our students.
We are their educational gurus.
Undergraduate/Graduate School Counselor
My passion for tutoring started during college, when my friends enlisted my help applying to medical schools and MBA programs. Over seven years have passed since that time and I’ve enjoyed the privilege of helping hundreds of students online, all around the world perfect their writing and research skills. Simultaneously, I’ve worked as a digital marketer in the finance industry, crafting strong, persuasive messages; this is a skill I’ve shared with my students when applying to colleges, jobs, or scholarships. When I’m not working with clients, I can be found tinkling the ivories with a little Rachmaninoff, jogging the colorful staircases in my neighborhood with my cat, Bella, or seeking LA’s best cinnamon roll.
Test Preparation Coach
Luis is thrilled working as a tutor for MY Education Guru. He fell into education after a brief stint in the legal profession, and has spent most of his professional life in one aspect of education or another. He’s taught students ages 4 through 64 in a variety of fields, and in addition to working in the classroom works to impart reading, homework, and test-taking techniques that will inform all areas of a student’s work. If there is one aspect of tutoring he does not enjoy, it is having to write about himself in the 3rd Person.
Test Preparation Coach
My name is Leah and I was born and raised in Las Vegas. I went to an amazing high school where I learned that I loved science and math, and used this first love to pursue an engineering degree at the University of Southern California here in Los Angeles. While there, I did some soul-searching and realized that engineering was not for me. I knew I loved eating delicious food and trying new recipes, but had no idea how to incorporate this into a career. In my pursuit of a health-related field, I fell in love with nutrition sciences and learning how we should treat our food as our medicine. I went on to earn my Master’s of Science in Human Nutrition at Drexel University where I was a Nutrition Sciences Teaching Assistant for undergraduate students, and I am currently working towards becoming a Registered Dietitian. In the meantime, I’m enjoying the opportunity to work with high school students on the ACT (one of the reasons that qualified me to earn a full-tuition scholarship to USC) and help them achieve their goals for getting into their dream school.
