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

Are you in need of a tutor who can help your child with all 
their school needs - from improving grade scores to getting 
more organized or prepared for tests? Would you like an 
experienced teacher that has also tutored and enjoys even 
the tough subjects? Then I may be your gal. I have B.S. in 
Biology and enjoy learning and passing along my excitement 
for both math and science. I'm animated and have a sense of 
humor which helps kids have fun without even knowing it and 
I connect easily on their level. And most importantly, can 
build their self-confidence and ?can-do? attitude. I can 
teach kids how to get good grades and instill self-
discipline. I'm equally well versed in other subjects as 
well. In addition, I offer services for summer break to keep 
skills sharp. If that sounds like something your family 
needs, please contact me at

I am a retired Physicist with a BS in Physics and MS credits 
in Laser Physics and Fiber Optics. My many years of 
industrial experience using Math in my Physics work have 
given me insights into exactly how each math concept 
corresponds to a physical reality.  You will receive a clear 
understanding of the fundamental concepts of math (with 
plenty of examples), enabling you to more easily to solve 
each math problem.  I will also provide you with strategies 
for converting math 'word problems' into algebra or 

I teach all levels of High School Math, including algebra, 
geometry, trigonometry, precalculus and calculus.

I am a math tutor with eighteen years of experience.  I have 
a degree in math from UC Berkeley and am the former head 
math tutor of Berkeley?s Student Learning Center.
I use an empathy based approach and teach by example.  I 
don?t just give students answers, I teach them how to ask 
questions.  I have classroom experience as a math teacher,

Many of BPN's parents are happy with my results as a math 
tutor for students in grades 3 - 12+. Every student 
improves, and most get A's.

I teach students to be great problem-solvers, to become 
poised and confident test takers, and to understand math so 
well they can teach it others. I work with private and 
public school students in your home or mine in Emeryville.  
My style is thorough, yet warm and friendly.  We even laugh 
a bit! 

The first visit is discounted and there is no obligation to 
continue. I want to be sure I am the best match for your 
child. I am a math teacher with 10 years' teaching 
experience and have 20+ years tutoring experience.  For more 
information, please go to or e-mail me.

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

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.

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.

Most people struggle with Mathematics for many reasons such 
as bad teacher, (no teacher in case of online class), 
horrible textbook, no tutors, classes too fast, too 
theoretical, boring .. I enjoy making something complicated 
easy to understand. I tend to bring historical references 
and bring Math to life. I have over 25 years of experience 
helping students ranging from 6 to 60 years old..I got my 
undergraduate degree in Mathematics and MA in Economics.

I tutor high school, college, and university students very efficiently at all levels of 
math including test preparations. I also tutor computer science, calculus based 
physics, and German.

I have a M.S. in Math and an interdisciplinary Ph.D. in Math, CS, and Physics from 
top German universities. In 1999 I came as a post-doc at LBNL to Berkeley.

My teaching experience includes being a lecturer within the European teaching 
initiative ERASMUS and having taught students in different countries. As an 
undergraduate I helped at a boarding school, as a graduate student I taught  
groups of up to 30 students. After my Ph.D. I offered my own lectures and 
became coordinator of the international university teaching project ERASMUS. 

Over the last four years I very efficiently helped hundreds of students in the Bay 
Area to master their classes. 

My hourly rate starts at $60 within 5 miles. I travel and provide group lessons at 
rates depending on travel.

I graduated summa cum laude from Yale in 2009, with a B.A. 
in math.

Since then, I've taught high school in Oakland: Calculus, 
Stats, Trig, Psych, Bio, Geometry, and English. My students 
performed well (more than 75% passed the Calc AP), and I've 
enjoyed watching them find success in college (many as the 
first in their families to attend).

I've written about education for Slate (one essay, ''What It 
Feels Like to Be Bad at Math,'' reached #1 on their list of 
''Most Liked'' pieces), and my blog (Math with Bad Drawings) 
has attracted more than 900,000 views in the last 5 months.

I've worked with students from ages 8 to 35, on topics 
ranging from basic study skills to advanced calculus. My 
specialty is math (from pre-algebra to BC Calculus), but I 
enjoy helping with writing, college advising, and other 
academic subjects.

Looking to score high on SAT, AP or to raise your Math grade 
at school?

Hi, my name is Julia. 
I am a graduate from UC Berkeley. I hold Bachelor's and 
Master's, both from UCB, majoring in industrial engineering 
from which I built my strength in mathematics and science. 

I am an experienced tutor (+4 years) that has taught handful 
of students from elementary school students to college 

Subjects I am confident and competent to teach are:
-Mathematics (from K-12 to college math: pre-algebra, 
algebra, pre-calculus, and calculus)
-SAT Math
-GRE Math
-AP Calculus 

If you need help to get higher score on standardized exams  
or to get better grade in your math classes, please contact 
me via my email.

In terms of rates, my base rate is $35/hr. 

Usually I tutor for an hour and half during each session

Experienced Tutor in all levels of HS Math!

Over the past 5 years, I have taught hundreds of students in
SAT Math, Albegra, Geometry, Alg II, Precal, Calculus and
Statistics, including work for Kaplan, Revolution Prep, and
Elite Education, and with numerous private tutoring students.

In addition to helping students master the current material
in their high school math courses, I aim to have a permanent
impact on students' confidence and mathematical reasoning
and understanding. I work to identify students' particular
learning styles and strengths and weaknesses, customizing
lessons to help them reach both short term and long term
goals.  Many of my students have gotten their highest grades
ever in a Math class after working with me.

ALL my math students' grades & skills improve. Most
earn ''A's''. They are: capable, yet under performing; 
in middle school taking Algebra 1; good 
students with math anxiety; right-brained learners; 
girls who are afraid to excel; or lacking key concepts. 

Students are treated with respect & sensitivity. Besides 
being a math teacher, I'm unusually perceptive & highly 
attuned. I am gentle, yet firm too. I develop self-reliance 
& study skills. 

I taught math for 10 yrs in Berkeley, Albany & 
Lafayette districts, and started tutoring at UCLA.
I teach all math levels through pre-calculus. 

Parents & students are happy with the results. Parents 
hire me after trying out college tutors. Areas covered are: 
Albany, Berkeley, Kensington, Oakland, Orinda & Piedmont. 
Location will be discussed. References available. Call for 
your 1st discounted session.

I offer kind, gentle and firm support in foundational math 
skills and concepts.  My focus is on depth of understanding.  

I am particularly interested in working with and supporting 
kids with ADHD, attentional and other learning disabilities, 
adopted kids, kids with Asperger?s or kids who need extra 
support in general.  

In addition to math, I help kids with organization, and time 

Most of the students with whom I work are in the 5th to 10th 
grade and a few juniors and seniors as well.

I?m a grandfather of high school age students and have 
worked with a wide range of students for the past ten years, 
after a successful career in high tech sales and marketing.
I typically work with students at their homes in Oakland, 
Piedmont, Berkeley and San Leandro and occasionally at my 
home office in the Redwood Heights neighborhood in Oakland.

Hi there!
My name is Caitlin. I have a B.A. in Molecular and Cell Biology from UC 
Berkeley. I have been working as a private tutor for kids of all ages, up 
through college, for over 8 years now. I love helping my students to achieve 
their academic goals, and I often also serve as a mentor. I steer away from 
memorization and focus on developing my students conceptual 
understanding, organizational skills, study skills, and test taking skills. I am 
aware of differing learning styles, so I adjust my tutoring style to fit my 
student's needs. I am caring, accessible, and work very hard to assure that I 
am doing the best job possible to help my students. I have helped students to 
increase their grades a whole letter or more. I provide supplementary 
assessment and homework materials to solidify the material for my students. 
In addition to my private tutoring experience, I have taught and tutored with a 
couple of prep/tutoring centers.

Need a tutor? I attended the Athenian High School and just
graduated from Brandeis University in 2012 with a dual
degree in Mathematics and Philosophy, and minor in Physics
(Magna Cum Laude). I've been working as a tutor the past
year while I prepare for grad school in Philosophy. I would
be happy to help out tutoring in Math, Writing, and Science
classes for all ages. I love working with young children
(especially in math), though equally enjoy teaching to
higher level students (all subjects). I 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 often, though he is not so little
anymore (now 15).

and stats, and I have tutored friends all throughout high 
school. This being said, I am open to working with younger 
students as well. If you are interested in helping your 
child catch up in school, prepare for the SAT/ACT, or expand  
his/her horizons, please contact me. My base rate is $30/hr,

Are you in need of a tutor who can help your child with all 
their school needs - from improving grade scores to getting 
more organized or prepared for tests? Would you like an 
experienced teacher that has also tutored and enjoys even 
the tough subjects? Then I may be your gal. I have B.S. in 
Biology and enjoy learning and passing along my excitement 
for both math and science. I'm animated and have a sense of 
humor which helps kids have fun without even knowing it and 
I connect easily on their level. And most importantly, can 
build their self-confidence and ?can-do? attitude. I can 
teach kids how to get good grades and instill self-
discipline. I'm equally well versed in other subjects as 
well. In addition, I offer services for summer break to keep 
skills sharp. If that sounds like something your family 
needs, please contact me at
