About Us

Our Agency:

Westside Tutoring Agency was founded in 1997 by Roozy J. Saviss, its current owner and operator, while he was an undergraduate at University of California, Los Angeles. From as early as high school, when he worked as a part time peer tutor at various inner-city youth programs, Roozy realized that he had a profound passion for helping and mentoring children. A few years later, in response to an overwhelming demand for truly dedicated tutors, Roozy officially founded Westside Tutoring Agency. His goal was to establish the first full-service boutique tutoring company dedicated to providing academic services with a distinct personal touch. Today, after more than ten years in operation and hundreds of students served, Westside Tutoring Agency continues to provide all of its clients with a full array of educational services, including tutoring, teaching, consulting, psychological counseling, standardized test preparation and college counseling. The agency utilizes a highly effective individualized and targeted approach that focuses on each student's specific needs. Even with a large client base and a staff of more than forty tutors, teachers and counselors, Roozy still insists on running the company like a small businessówith a very high level of personal service and dedication. He personally conducts all initial client interviews and he continues to fulfill his passion of mentoring children by personally tutoring a handful of students on a part time basis. In addition to a strong emphasis on academics, Roozy brings an unparalleled level of class and worldliness to the agency. He speaks three languages and he has traveled extensively around the world. Roozy has held numerous positions in the field of education. He is a former math teacher and he has also served as a director at the American English Academy in Los Angeles. Roozy holds two Bachelor's degrees from UCLA, in Physiology and Classical Civilization, and a Juris Doctor from Loyola Law School. In addition to overseeing the day to day operations of the agency, Roozy is also an attorney and he is currently practicing law in California and before the United States District Court for the Central District.
