Couldn't recommend any higher. Orlando helped me with my calculus class, and I'll be going back for further classes.

This guy is the real deal! I had been trying to pass my CSET for my credential for MONTHS and just couldn’t. After some... sessions with Orland I was finally able to pass the math and science section I needed! That pass was the best feeling, ever! We loved Orland so much that we still use him for our son who is in 8th grade and struggles with math from time to time. I am so grateful for Orland’s help! I would recommend him to more

Yelp comment on:When I first started to be tutored by Mr. Orland Farnias, I’ll admit I was initially intimidated by... his plethora of knowledge regarding all things mathematics. However, just on the first day, I realized that he’s just a normal person like you and me. Because of his passion for teaching and genuine love for math, you will experience that not only does he want to teach you math, but he also wants to help you learn how to love it, too. He not only shares his knowledge but he also makes sure you understand the concept(s) you are struggling with and will match the pace you need in order to overcome your difficulty. I am thankful I found Mr. Farnias. I endorse him for all your math-related challenges no matter your age or grade. Remember, you want to have a good foundation in your academic life. Do not hesitate to seek help from Orland Math Whiz. I assure you, you will not regret more

I would like to thank Orland for all his help. He was very respectful, professional, smart and he has so much patience.... My daughter was struggling so much with her math class and could never get higher than a C on any work, test or quiz she completed. When I found him online I decided to try it out. He helped her get her first A. She was so happy. I would recommend Orland to any of my friends or my daughter's friends. He helped her during quarantine via zoom. He has been a great help and I will for sure continue to use his services for the coming school year. Thank you Orland. Hope you and your family are doing more

Orland is an amazing teacher. He explained calculus concepts clearly to my son who is a HS senior. He went from a B to... finishing the semester with an A-, with only about 6 sessions. We will be returning for second semester as he prepares for college. I highly recommend Orland if your child needs help with understanding math more

why choose me?

Education is my passion! I enjoy giving back, sharing the knowledge, and mentoring. Besides my family, there is no greater joy to me than to see my students “light up” as they begin to understand and enjoy the subjects I tutor.

Struggling with Math?
Let me help!

Hi! My name is Orlan Farinas, professional tutor and mentor for over 17 years. I value my family and education. I was a student athlete at Delano High School (DHS). I was voted Most Likely to Succeed and received the Morris Most Outstanding Senior Athlete in Track & Field. In 1982, I graduated from DHS with honors with a 3.91 GPA, and I earned a partial scholarship at UCLA.

I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from UCLA in 1987. I currently work for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) as NAS Plan & Programs Manager, Electrical Engineer. I have been working for the federal government for over 33 years, with vast engineering and management experience. In 1997, I graduated from the Executive Potential Program, a 2-year government management Masters degree program. I am a 1999 Dale Carnegie Leadership graduate. For my dedicated community service, I received the Los Angeles Skyline Lions Club 2020 Citizen of the Year Award.

In addition to being a freelance tutor for nearly two decades, I tutored at various other places. While attending UCLA, I tutored Pre-calculus, Calculus, and Linear Algebra for three

years. In addition, I volunteered to tutor Calculus 1 and 2, as well as Statistics at the
Antelope Valley College (AVC) for a year and a half. Throughout my career, I helped many
FAA technicians pass their math and basic electronics courses. Furthermore, as part of the
“No Student Left Behind” program, I worked part-time for WeCan Foundation, a non-profit
organization, tutoring elementary and high school students from Basic Math to Calculus,
Language Arts, and CAHSEE preparation. Helping under-privileged students accomplish
their academic goals is heart-warming and rewarding. I’ve always enjoyed math, and I found
my passion to educate through these various experiences.

I come from a clan of professionals: engineers, businessmen, chefs, managers, nurses,
dentists, optometrist, and physical therapists. Growing up in a small town in the San
Joaquin Valley taught us hard work, perseverance, and determination – and these are
exactly the values I try to instill in my own child and the students I tutor.

 Orland Farinas, The Math Whiz

My private tutoring business grew from my deep desire to give back. I was fortunate to have awesome teachers and mentors who gave me solid educational foundation for success. It is my way of paying forward, sharing my knowledge, and creating better students. I instill confidence in my students and prepare them for success.
