Statistics Tutor Solely Dedicated to the Subject

My name is Eric and I am located in Berkeley.  I tutor all 
areas of Statistics and no other subjects. I am much more 
likely to be able to assist you than many of the Math and 
Science tutors who claim they also tutor Statistics.

Some areas of Statistics that I commonly help students with 
include: Probability, z Scores, Binomial Distributions, 
Hypothesis Testing, T-Tests, ANOVAs, Linear Regression and 
using SPSS.

I have a Master's Degree in Applied Statistics and an 
undergraduate degree in Psychology from Cal State East Bay. 
I have ten years experience tutoring privately.

I have helped students from many schools including Cal State 
East Bay, San Francisco State, Berkeley City and Laney 
Community Colleges and AP High School Students. 

I am currently available and charge $35 per hour. Feel free 
to contact me, via email at Eric.Easton@GMail.COM or at 
(510) 688-6200 if you have any questions.

I am a math tutor with a math degree and 18 years 
tutoring experience.  Before entering private practice, I 
was the Head Math Tutor at the Student Learning Center at 
UC Berkeley, where I trained tutors and TAs.
I use an Empathetic Socratic approach.  My specialty is 
helping students cope with low self-esteem and rebound 
from classroom neglect.  I tutor all levels of high 
school math, including calculus and post-calculus. 
I also offer instruction in biology, chemistry, physics 
and the Python programming language.  I am active in 
increasing the diversity of the Tech community through 
such organizations as Women Who Code and Girl Develop It.
I tutor in Berkeley, Oakland and Orinda.  My rate is $70 
an hour.

Berkeley Parents or young inclined learners of mathematics, 
My name is Wes Winter, I am a Chemistry Major, and as a UCBerkeley 
Graduate, I am interested in tutoring mathematics and chemistry. I have six 
years of tutoring experience which I received from privately tutoring, tutoring 
for schools, and teaching at the Lawrence Hall of Science. This past year I 
worked with five young Berkeley high school students which benefitted 
positively from our sessions. For those interested in long term weekly 
sessions I offer SAT classes and self written curriculum on a case by case 
system. I am pretty flexible and can come over for emergency sessions too.

Are you looking for an expert math teacher who connects well 
with students, hones in right in the moment on exactly what 
your child needs, teaches study skills in each session, uses 
the student?s time efficiently,  is gentle yet thorough, and 
is gifted at bringing out the best in her students?

My name is Tralee Johnson, MA, MFT. I taught math for 10 
years before opening ?Great Math Tutoring?.  I work with 
students of all ages who are; motivated, underachieving, 
sensitive, creative or artistic, demoralized, and/or math 
anxious. In a supportive environment, students feel 
comfortable to ask all their questions

Besides 1-1 and group tutoring, I lead a workshop, ''GO 
FIGURE!'', for girls in grades 5 to 8.  Girls learn to 
become independent problem solvers using math games, 
puzzles, and riddles.  

You can find more information about these services on my 
website at: Tralee Johnson, MA,

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 Network,

My name is Geoffrey Lee, I recently graduated magna cum 
laude from Harvard University with a degree in math and 
was awarded the John Harvard Scholarship in 2012 for 
being in the top 5% of my class. I have been taking 
college level courses since I was a sophomore at Berkeley 
High and for the past 5 years have been studying graduate 
level math. While I was at Harvard, I worked as a course 
assistant in the math department teaching weekly sections 
and helping students with homework. Math is never easy, 
but the right teacher can help students build their own 
intuition and develop healthy study habits. I am an  
easygoing and patient person who tends to get along well 
with others and I'm excited to share my love for 

My rates are $65/hour and I am willing to tutor any level 
of math. If you are interested, please contact me at 

I am willing to provide references upon request.

My name's Thomas and I am a 19 year old taking some time off before I go to 
college at Carlton next fall. I graduated from high school at College Prep, 
known for its academic rigor, with a 3.8 GPA. During high school, I gained 
experience tutoring middle school students with the Partners program. My 
strongest subjects in high school were math, science, and history.

Math Subjects that I can tutor:

Arithmetic (Basic math, multiplication, division, estimation, etc.)
Decimals and fractions
Pre-Algebra (Negative numbers, Exponents, Factors and Primes, Proportions, 
Variables, Order of Operations)

I deeply enjoy engaging with youth. If I had to describe my personality in three 
words, I would say calm, attentive, and caring. I think you will find that I can be 
a fun and engaging tutor. 
Please email me if you are interested or if you have any questions, comments, 
or concerns.

Greetings! I'm Christopher Wirick, a UC Berkeley graduate in 
Mathematics and Cognitive science. My studies focused on 
calculus, analysis, probability theory, and artificial intelligence.

I tutor for all levels of mathematics, and have particular 
experience with calculus tutoring. My last math student scored 
800 on his SAT math test. 

I don't believe that there is such a thing as being 'talented' at 
math, or almost any discipline outside of sports. Talent is a 
function of preparation and hard work, and these are the 
qualities that I will foster in a student. Where we start is less 
important than the progress made between sessions; I will 
expect hard work outside of tutoring lessons.

$75 for 60 minute lesson
$100 for 90 minute lesson

Hobbies: I am currently the principal oboe of the UC Berkeley 
Symphony, and toured with the group in the summer of 2014. I 
am available for oboe lessons, for a student looking for a real 
challenge :)

Hi Berkeley Parents and Teens, 

You should know that success in math begins with loving your
first math class and building on it year after year.  My
name is Despina; with a doctorate in math,  I have profound
knowledge of the subject matter and many years of teaching
experience with students at different levels.  When tutoring
students in Middle School and High School, I guide them to
build a connection with the subject and improve their
performance.  You will see your student develop their
skills, have fun with math, and markedly improve his/her

With every hour of instruction, students are granted three
10-minute phone/video calls for math questions in the
following week.

Tutoring rate: $120/hour

Note: I will participate in the AIDS LifeCycle event in June, and I am fundraising for the
event; 1/4 of proceeds from all math lessons will go towards
the event, as your tax deductible contribution.

Do your kids know how to do math problems, but not understand why they're 
doing what they're doing?

Do you simply not trust the math curriculum?

Do you have a nagging suspicion that your child's math teacher doesn't actually 
know any mathematics, let alone know how to teach it?

I teach kids how to identify invalid reasoning, and have them learn some simple 
rules of valid mathematical reasoning, which they can use to solve *almost every 
problem* in the curriculum. I also teach kids how to remember arguments, rather 
than methods, and give them practice deriving methods from arguments. 

I'm completely new to the profession, and my teaching/tutoring experience is me 
teaching math to my liberal arts friends in college, and lecturing one high school 

I am patient, I like kids, and I improvise just about everything. 

$40/hour, within 20 miles of Sunnyvale. $55/hour rest of bay area.

Hi! Math can be a challenging subject for many students. 
I myself was never a math prodigy but always enjoyed the 
subject. There is  misconception that if you do't 
understand math now, you will never get it. This is 
completely false. Math can be taught and understood in 
creative ways. My approach is to take the math off of the 
page and try to apply it to real world experiences. I 
believe the more ways in which someone can understand an 
idea the better they can grasp it. With this philosophy, 
I guide students through the realm of numbers. I am 
available to tutor students of any age, ranging from 
basic elementary mathematics to calculus. I look forward 
to hearing from you!

Over the past 20 years I?ve tutored everything from upper level 
undergraduate physics to elementary math. I've worked with the full 
spectrum of learners from gifted students to students with learning 

Previously I lectured college, taught at public schools, and co-founded my 
own science summer camp company. I created dedicated age specific 
hands-on math and science courses for girls and boys. We were known for 
helping students fall in love with math and science in a school-like setting. 
We were able to prove that science can be fun and interesting.

I also specialize in all things test prep (SAT I, SAT II Subject, GRE), having 
designed entire courses for as many as 25 students. Most of my students 
see 40-50% improvements in their test scores. Multiple students of mine 
have gone on to achieve perfect scores on their tests.

I charge $100/hr and will accommodate up to five students for the same 
session cost of $100/hr.

Most often, students struggle with math because they weren't
taught the fundamentals of math concepts in a concrete way
that makes sense. 

Without an understanding and fluency in these math codes,
the struggle to keep up continues. Math does not need to be
stressful! Math is NOT hard!

Utilizing Making Math Real strategies and teaching methods,
I will tutor your child to truly understand concepts of
place, place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication
and division. 

I use proven methods that build fluency in addition,
subtraction, multiplication and division facts.  This
instruction style is particularly helpful for dyslexic students.

I am available 9 - 1 pm (Monday - Friday). My rates are
reasonable and I am available to travel to your child's home
or school.

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!

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

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

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 

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.

I have extensive experience working with children of all 
ages through counseling for summer camps, babysitting, 
and tutoring various subjects. I also volunteered in the 
pediatric department and NICU in Ronald Reagan and Santa 
Monica hospitals, and also with BIA to teach children 
with autism. I enjoy helping children learn and catering 
to each child's specific needs.

Overall, it would be such a pleasure tutoring your child! 
Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Hello, Berkeley Parents Network. 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

I love teaching and have been teaching math and science for homeschoolers and 
students attending local private and public K-12 and college for 12 years 
(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.

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.

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 

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,

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

GPA: 3.8 (3.9 in Math)
SAT I, II Math: 800
AP Calc AB: 5
AP Physics C: 5
Additional courses for 9-12: Multivariable Calc, Probability, Macro 
Economic Theory

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.

all math, including pre-algebra, algebra I, algebra II, 
geometry, trigonometry, pre-Calculus, and Calculus, biology, 
chemistry, and physics, writing, general organization and 
homework support, and SAT and ACT.

I am ideally suited to act as a ''one-stop shop'' for a 
student's overall academic support.

My interests outside of academics include poetry-writing, 
guitar-playing, and comedy screenwriting.

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
www.TheMathematicsTutor.ORG or call (415) 508-MATH

Hi everyone! My name is Ben Barcklay, and I am currently a senior at Berkeley 
High School. I am just finishing up BC Calculous, and as part of the honors math 
program at Berkeley High, I have been tutoring in math for the past four years 
and have learned how to figure out what students need to learn and how to teach 
problem sets step by step without giving away the answer. Three years ago, I 
started tutoring in the College and Career Center and have tutored all levels of 
math up to Calculous. If you have any questions, please send me an email! Thank

Hi! My name is Sarah Lewites, and I am a senior in the IB program at Berkeley 
High. I am a tutor and I specialize in math. I am currently taking BC calculus and 
have been in honors math classes since middle school, so I can tutor in any 
math through AP calculus AB, including honors classes. As part of a 
requirement for honors math classes, I have tutored other students at my 
school every year since 9th grade. This year, I also worked in the English 
language development department, and tutored students who are learning 
English as a second language in math and English. I speak Spanish fairly well, so 
I am able to work with students who are more comfortable speaking Spanish 
when studying if needed. Although I do focus on math, I have taken IB-level 
classes in nearly all subject areas, and I tutor in English as well. I would love to 
have the opportunity to work with more students! Please contact me with any 
questions at
