Hey there! My name is Nick and I'm a double major in English Literature and 
Economics at Cal. I graduated high school in 2011 with a weighted GPA of 
4.51 and an unweighted GPA of 3.91. I excel in all sorts of subjects, especially 
mathematics, English, and American history. I'm also a highly qualified SAT 
tutor. I'm very up-to-date with the test, as I only took it two years ago. My 
score breakdown is as follows: 790 in Critical Reading, 780 in Math, 710 in 
Writing, 2280 Composite. I've been tutoring elementary, junior high, and high 
school kids for five years now, and even after all that time, I?m hard-pressed 
to call it a ?job.? Being a student myself, I know what makes kids tick. Whether 
it's through humor, sports, or what have you, I can find ways to connect to 
kids. And once I earn their trust, getting them interested in learning is 
nothing more than a cakewalk. If you're interested, I am too. Contact me!

Hi Berkeley parents!

I'd love to tutor your son or daughter in high school math! I studied engineering 
at Dartmouth College, where I served as a teaching assistant and taught complex 
mathematical concepts to fellow students. Mathematical concepts were not 
innately easy for me to learn; I too had to sit down and patiently conquer 
calculus. This sets me up to be a much more skilled and compassionate teacher 
than a typical ''math whiz''. I can give your son or daughter the tools and 
confidence to succeed! My rate is $35/hour; I hope to hear from you!

Best,
Brynne

I can tutor your child in math. 

I did a math Ph.D. at U.C. Berkeley and a bachelor's degree
in math and physics from Harvard. In the past, I have
tutored, I have taught math to undergraduates in Berkeley
(as a GSI), and I have taught gifted high school and middle
school students.

My tutoring style is to draw the student out by asking
questions and setting problems to find the student's
strengths and weaknesses. If a student is having difficulty
with one topic, it's often the case that   she or he needs
to review some earlier topic. I am good at listening in this
way, and I am patient. 

I live in Berkeley and would be happy to meet in person for
tutoring. I can meet in a public place, or I can go to your
home.

My rate is $40/hour. I suppose I may change this eventually,
but let's say it's valid through the end of 2014. Depending
on how far your home is from public transit, I may have to
charge a little more if I'm going to your home.

Hello, Berkeley parents and teens. I have taught and tutored 
Mathematics and Statistics for many years, in many different 
contexts and  for many different kinds of students including 
students from local High Schools and Colleges.
 
Some students? comments:
 
''One of the best teachers I have ever had. .. the best 
explainer of things I have ever met.''
 
''I really felt that I was not just a student being force fed 
ideas, but part of a group of people including the teacher, 
who were attempting to achieve something! He  allowed me to 
truly understand the concepts behind the formulas.''

I prefer to tutor students in senior High School classes: 
precalculus, AP Calculus (AB and BC) and Statistics but am 
available for students of other levels as well. I have a PhD 
in Mathematics from UC Berkeley and am now retired from 
teaching.

Cal graduate student with a strong passion for science/math education available 
for tutoring. Can tutor upper level high school (including AP) and college 
courses, as well as exam prep (ACT, SAT, AP, etc.). 

Tutoring affords your child the extra edge and one-on-one attention that can 
make all the difference in classes and on exams. My tutoring style emphasizes 
problem solving skills and conceptualization, rather than focusing on just doing 
homework problems. We have a good time!

I am a recipient of several teaching awards from Cal, and references from parents 
of current and graduated BHS students available upon request. I have M.A.s in 
physics and mathematics (from UC Berkeley and Cambridge, respectively). 
Available most evenings and weekends. Rates depend on travel but are on 
average ~$65/hour. We can also meet on or near UC Berkeley campus. Please do 
not hesitate to contact me if you have questions.

I am a community college math instructor with 30 years of experience 
working with students of all levels.  I can teach arithmetic, prealgebra, 
algebra, geometry (including proofs), trigonometry, precalculus, and 
calculus.

I am an experienced teacher who can prepare a lesson on any math 
subject.  If your child is struggling with a particular topic, I can prepare a 
lesson which leads your child from easy examples through more difficult 
examples. I am known for not skipping steps which is very important for a 
student struggling with the material. 

I have a lot of experience assessing the level of a student so that I can 
choose examples which are exactly at your child's level.

In addition, I can also provide lessons for very bright children who are not 
being challenged in class.

I am also known for being extremely patient and caring.  I think your child 
will feel comfortable working with me.

Rates 

$80 for 1 hour
$110 for 1.5 hours
$130 for 2 hours

Astronomy from U of Arizona. In High School, I got a 5 on AP Calculus BC and 4 
on AP Physics B.

FUN FACTS: I am 24, a guy (name may fool you), and am getting married this 
January!
RATE: $60/hour
LOCATION: I can drive or meet halfway. Live in El Cerrito.

Thanks,

(Berkeley, Oakland, Albany, El Cerrito, Piedmont).  Having studied at UC Berkeley 
College of Chemistry (B.S. Chemical Biology), my expertise lies in the field of 
MATH (from Arithmetic to Multivariable Calculus, SAT Math, etc.) and SCIENCE 
(Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Computer Science, etc.).  Having educated both in 
Japan and the U.S. I am a native speaker of Japanese and I've learned and 
experienced different cultures, disciplines, demands, perspectives and methods 
to mastering the subjects.

Currently I am accepting some more students until full.  Feel free to contact me 
with any questions or concerns through my email address shown here.  Thank 
you very much for looking at my ad!

I recently graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in
Applied Math, minoring in Math/Science Education (GPA: 3.7).
I hope to tutor students in math (or other subjects) during
autumn 2014 (I can start in mid-August) and possibly the
following spring. 

I've been training to be a math teacher and will
student-teach in autumn to get a teacher-credential by
January. I've worked with students of all ages (elementary
to adult) from diverse backgrounds in various environments.
I think it's important to make education relevant to
students' lives and interests, especially when people can
feel so lost in the world of math. I'm flexible to cater my
tutoring to a student's preferred learning style.

E-mail me if interested in hiring me as a tutor. My rate is
$25/hour for elementary or middle school students, and
$35/hour for high school or college students up to calculus.
Group rates can be negotiated. If this is not affordable for
your household, I can also negotiate.

been working as a private tutor for high school and college students while I apply 
to graduate programs. I will be attending Oxford for Philosophy in the fall. 

I have 11 years of experience of one-on-one tutoring with my much younger 
brother in math and science (usually for fun). In fact we still work together, 
though he is not so little anymore (now 16). I've learned a lot from working with 
him about how to teach skillfully. I would be happy to help out tutoring in Math, 
Writing, and Physics classes for all ages.

Hello BPN,

My name is Jacob Wilson. I'm a senior at Pomona College majoring in 
Economics and Math. I'm hoping to tutor K-12 kids in the Bay Area this 
summer. 

My style with students is flexible and tailored. I'm definitely in the 'No two 
kids learn the same way' camp. This means my work follows State 
Standards, but stops along the way to bolster a kid's weak spots and 
explore their strengths. This is important. To make math fun, you have to 
hone a student's talents. Eventually I go beyond the required material, 
because that's where all the cool math is.

Thanks for reading and good luck to your kid,
Jacob 

P.S. My rate is $25/hour either at your residence or an agreed upon local 
destination.
P.P.S. Despite all the high level talk, I really like working with youngsters 
(K-5).

Credentials
GPA: 3.8 (3.9 in Math)
SAT I, II Math: 800
AP Calc AB: 5

Hello!

I am available to tutor through mid-August. I just graduated from Yale 
University with a BS in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology. I 
attended Berkeley High School, and would be delighted to provide homework 
assistance, study and test-taking skills, and tutoring in any subject K-12, 
although my specialty areas are chemistry and biology. I am qualified to tutor 
SAT prep, SAT subject tests, ACTs, select AP exams, and assist with the 
college application process. 

As a Bay Area local, I tutored Berkeley High Students in math, chemistry, and 
biology for four years, and have experience as a private tutor as well. I am 
available for group as well as private tutoring with flexible hours.

I have a PhD in mathematics and a BS in engineering. I have 
5 years of classroom  experience, teaching statistics and 
calculus at University of Maryland. I have been doing paid 
and unpaid tutoring for 25 years now. I also teach at a 
college currently. My son finished medical school this year, 
he also has a degree in Biochemical engineering. My daughter 
is a junior at UC Berkeley studying Energy Engineering. I 
always volunteered at my children's schools. Now that my 
children do not need me as much as before; I try to help 
other children more. 

Because of my great education, I am quite knowledgeable . 
However, my real value stems from my natural patience. My 
students all say that I put them at ease and that makes them 
feel free to learn. I am also able to explain the same thing 
in many different ways, or find different tools to help them 
learn and retain the material. I love teaching and I hope to 
be with the kids for many many years.

I've helped many students improve their performance in math over the last 
three years. This isn't just about helping with homework - I bring plenty of my 
own materials to enhance instruction and make math more interesting and 
fun.

After being completely booked for the entire school year, now I have several 
openings for summer enrichment and catch-up. Clients who start during the 
summer not only get a jump on their math, they get priority for a slot in the 
fall, as well as a permanent discount. Start before Sept. 30th and pay only $50 
per 50-minute session. 

I'm best with middle school math through Calculus, and I also enjoy working 
with younger ''math kids'' who want math enrichment beyond the topics 
taught in the regular curriculum.

Did your child struggle with Algebra I, Geometry, or Algebra 
II this year?  Are you looking for ways to help your child 
start out the next school year strong and confident in math?

I am offering summer therapeutic math tutoring in Berkeley 
for students who wish to address the academic and emotional 
difficulties they experienced in math this school year and 
prepare for their upcoming math course this Fall. 

In tutoring, students focus on:
* Identifying their mathematical areas of strength and 
weakness 
*Developing math skills and conceptual understanding in 
their areas of weakness
*Building active learning skills
*Exploring their emotional reactions to math
*Learning coping mechanisms 
*Creating a learning plan for their next math course this 
Fall

My goal in tutoring is to help students develop the skills 
and insights they need to become happy, confident, 
successful math learners.

Hi there!

I have almost full availability for the next month for 1 new tutee!

I recently graduated from UC Berkeley, with a degree in Cognitive Science (the 
study of the mind).

Students say I get ''hyphy'' about math!!  My personal mission is to make math 
enjoyable and achievable for all.

SAT experience: Personally, I've taught 100+ students at BHS, AHS, CAT in SF, 
and the YMCA.  I've trained 80 other Cal students to teach test-prep, and I've 
written test-prep curriculum that is being used by 2,100+ local HS students.  

I've tutored both high-achieving and failing students one-on-one.  It's very 
important to me to teach holistically---emotions and cognitive functioning play 
an important role in academic success--but to do so in a manner that is actually 
in the latest research of how math learning and cognition works.

Pls feel free to request my full resume.   

Rates for 1.5 hour sessions: $120 for SAT/ACT prep. $90 for middle to high 
school math.

Summer Math Study

Don't let your children forget the MATH they just learned
this year!  Enroll your child in Summer Math Study.
 
I can re-teach and remediate your child?s math skills;
review last year's math before school starts (did you know
that students lose 2 month?s knowledge over the summer?);
preview next year?s course to reduce pressure on high school
students; or start the ACT/SAT prep process. 

After assessing your child?s math skills, customized lessons
are created (which can include common core methods). All
math lessons include weekly homework. Call for rates and an
initial appointment without obligation. 

Tralee Johnson taught math for 10 years and has tutored for
20 years. Her students become great problem-solvers, poised
and confident test takers, and well-schooled enough to teach
math to others. Her style is thorough, warm, and friendly
with a side of humor. See BPN parents? reviews, go to

Hello Parents,

I am offering my services as a tutor. A recent transplant to
the Bay Area, I graduated from UC Santa Cruz with a degree
in Art and minors in Physics and Astrophysics with academic
honors.  I have been teaching in the classroom and as a
tutor for the past 10 years, both in the US and abroad.  I
have a comprehensive understanding of learning theory, and
know how to teach to an individual's particular learning
style.  

My aim in tutoring is to give an individual the tools to
complete a problem set while also imparting an understanding
of the underlying principals the problem set relies upon. In
this way the student is able to both conceptualize the
theories behind an idea and concretely demonstrate his or
her understanding. 

I am happy to help students in any of the disciplines of
mathematics, physics, astrophysics, writing, etc. 

Feel free to contact me with any questions.

Hello Berkeley parents,

I'm a recent Berkeley grad with B.A.'s in Applied Math and Physics, and I'm a 
great communicator. I was the president of my house in the Berkeley Student 
Cooperative, which means I have facilitated meetings, moderated conflicts, and 
have been trained in communication skills. I was an athlete/team captain in 
highschool, so I understand the importance of being a positive roll model.

Compassion is a personal and professional philosophy of mine, so I have a lot of 
patience, and I want to push my students to learn. I have experience with 
teaching, but it has been mostly unpaid for friends and other students.

I would like to charge $40/hour, but am more than happy to negotiate for 
families that cannot afford that. In fact if anyone really needs a free tutor, I 
would enjoy taking on one student given appropriate circumstances.

Email me with questions, I am happy to answer.

Need a tutor? I graduated from Brandeis University in 2012
with a dual degree in Mathematics and Philosophy, and minor
in Physics (Magna Cum Laude). Since graduating, I've been
working as a private tutor while I apply to graduate
programs in Philosophy. I also have 10 years of experience
of one-on-one tutoring with my much younger brother in math
and science (usually for fun). In fact we still work
together, though he is not so little anymore (now 15). I've
learned a lot from teaching him about how to teach
skillfully. I would be happy to help out tutoring in Math,
Writing, and Physics classes for all ages.

taking strategies and study skills, college mentorship, or a 
combination of services. My college mentorship experience 
comes from 3 years w/ UCLA Admissions, mentoring high school 
& college students on how to get into universities like 
UCLA.

I'm able to tutor math subjects from Arithmetic - 
Differential Equations. My range is $60+ (depends on 
tutoring program package and location) ' First 30 Mins Free

Hello! I recently graduated from UC Berkeley with a B.A. in
Marine Science. I have a strong background in math and I'm
happy to help students at any level up through Calculus
(Calculus I). $25/hr. Thanks!

Former Cal and Lowell HS instructor available for private 
tutoring. I have a PhD in math and over 15 years of 
experience. My standard rate is $70/hr, meeting in downtown 
Berkeley or along San Pablo between Berkeley and Emeryville.  
Home visits may be possible; depends on timing and location. 

I've taught full high school curriculum and can tutor any HS 
math.  For college students, the full calculus sequence, 
abstract and linear algebra, and combinatorics/discrete math 
are definitely okay; others considered on a case by case 
basis. I occasionally work with advanced elementary or 
middle school students.

I focus on helping students figure out why things work, 
rather than pure memorization.  I especially enjoy helping 
students build up their confidence in math.

Please email with information on your subject and goals, 
plus preferred and backup time slots for meetings. For 
tutoring in your home, please include your location as well.

Hi, I am a former BHS student and a recent UC Santa Cruz graduate with a 
Bachelors degree in Mathematics and a Bachelors degree in Business 
Management Economics.

I am planning to go to graduate school in fall and I am currently available to 
work as a tutor with Middle and High School students. I enjoy teaching. I am 
comfortable with and understand teenagers and can provide positive mentorship 
for them. Please refer to my LinkedIn page for more information about me. 
www.linkedin.com/pub/dir/Ashkon/Jalalian

I charge $20 for my work, which is significantly less than professional rate (it can 
be from $40 and up). I am comfortable with all middle and high school 
mathematics topics in addition to most of the science subjects.

Thanks,
Ashkon Jalalian

Do you have a child who is frustrated with math?  I tutor students in Pre-Algebra 
and Algebra - 5th through 9th grades.  I believe everyone can learn and like 
math and feel confident in their abilities.   What I love about working with math 
students is discovering the best way to explain the concepts according to how 
that student learns.  I work with with students in the classrooms at Albany 
Middle School as well as tutor privately in Albany (near Solano Ave.)  Contact

Dear Parents, 

I am a recent graduate in Civil and Environmental Engineering (BS- Cornell/ 
MS- Stanford). I have prior tutoring experience in chemistry and fluid 
mechanics and am available to tutor math, chemistry, portuguese and 
physics. I struggled with math in high school but found that I loved it in 
college (I ended up in engineering). I can empathize with the frustration of 
learning pre-algebra, algebra and calculus for the first time. I enjoy 
challenging myself to be a creative and effective instructor and will tailor my 
teaching strategy to your child's needs. My rates are $30/hour. I live in 
Berkeley- my hours are flexible and I am happy to meet students in your 
home or elsewhere. I look forward to hearing from you!

Cheers,
Julia
