I am a first year student at UC Berkeley. In high school I 
completed all four AP Science Courses achieving a 5 in 
Biology, Environmental Science and Physics B as well as a 4 in 
Chemistry. I received a 35 on the ACT science section and a 
780 on the SAT biology subject test. I am available to teach 
all science subjects from K-12 as well as test preparation for 
the SAT and ACT science sections.

Hi Parents! 

Are you looking for someone who can connect well with middle 
and high school students? Are you looking for someone with 
previous experience as both a Montessori teacher and has 
worked for University of CA teaching at OUSD? I?ve been 
tutoring for 5 years and enjoy witnessing kids get excited, 
even about challenging subjects. Is your child looking for 
someone fun to work with that understands and relates to 
them? If so, then you've met your gal. I enjoy subjects like 
Biology and Algebra and can help make them fun and simple to 
learn. I have a B.S. in Biological Science and will be 
obtaining my teaching credential and M.A. in Education at 
Mills College. I can help in all subjects. I have lots of 
patience and outstanding references. If interested call me 
at (510) 206-5436 or email at

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.

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 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 been tutoring, teaching and developing educational 
materials for 23 years since graduating summa cum laude from 
Harvard with a BS in Biology in 1987.

I help students improve their grades and feel more confident 
through my individualized approach, ability to make concepts 
clear, and easy-going but focused approach. I can help 
students improve in:
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. 

Please visit my website at 
I have outstanding references available upon request.

I am a private tutor with a proven track record. Every student who I have worked 
with has seen their grades and interest level in their material increase. 

I work organically, providing simplified, illustrative  strategies that are easy to 
grasp and apply. My patient, fun and individualized approach to teaching has 
helped many students to master coursework and become more successful 

I am currently pursuing my PhD at UC Berkeley in Visual Neuroscience.


All levels of Biology, Chemistry and up through High School level Mathematics.

''Patrick tutored our son during the 2010-2011 school year in Biology and Math, 
when our son was a sophomore in High School. Patrick is a wonderful tutor, both 
as a person and as a subject expert. He managed to get our son interested in 
these subjects, developed a great working relationship with him and the net 
result was that our son improved his grades from a D to a B. Patrick is very

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

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.
