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

If your high school student needs help with physics,
chemistry, environmental science, earth science or math, I'm
your gal.

I have a doctorate in geophysics, 7 years experience
teaching college level introductory oceanography, and an
almost-completed teaching credential in physics. References
available from former students and tutoring clients.

Dear Sir,


 Teacher in Physics and Chemistry, I worked for nine years 
at the European School in Karlsruhe, Germany preceded by a 
period of six years expatriation French High School of 
Vienna Austria after a period of two years in high school 
Franco-German school Buc (France).

Currently residing in the United States, California, San 
Francisco, I hope to extend my career as a physics, 
chemistry or mathematics teacher.

 I remain at your disposal for any information. Please 
accept the expression of my most respectful greetings.

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.

I have an engineering Ph.D. from Brown University and a B.A.
in physics.  I was a physics Tutor and computer science
Teaching Assistant (TA) in college and started tutoring
again last year.  I have taught 7th grade engineering and
programming courses at a summer enrichment program and
re-vamped a 3rd-6th grade public school literacy curriculum.    

I love to teach and tutoring is my favorite type of teaching!  

My tutoring areas are:
?        Math
?        Science (Physics, Biology, Chemistry)
?        Electrical Engineering
?        Computer Science
?        Test Preparation & Study Skills

I am interested in tutoring K-12 and college students.  I
can do homework help, exam prep and study skills.  My rates
are flexible and I can come to the student?s home or meet at

I love explaining things in different ways and using
creative analogies and visuals to help people really
understand the material.

Thanks and have a great day!

I love teaching and have been teaching math and science for homeschoolers and 
students attending local K-12 and college for 11 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.).  The most requested subjects last year 
were Geometry and Chemistry.  I've also taught some introductory Japanese as I 
am a native speaker of the language.  Currently I am accepting some more 
students until full. 

Contact me with any questions or concerns through my email address shown
here.  Thank you very much for looking at my ad!

I am a science teacher with 10 years of teaching experience in the classroom. 
I have helped many frustrated students (and parents!) who thought they had 
tried everything - students challenged by organization, confidence, learning 
differences, or just hard-to-gauge teachers. As a teacher in a heterogeneous 
classroom, I also know how to ''differentiate up.''  Most recently, I tutored two 
sophomores in Chem and both saw their grades and confidence go up.  
Excellent references available.

Some of my experience and qualifications: 
-Masters in Education from Harvard and B.S. in Biology from Cornell
-10 years of teaching biology and chemistry at Berkeley High School, Lowell 
High School (SF), and a private middle school teaching science and algebra
-GRE score in the 98th percentile

-Available August 2013 and through the 2013-14 school year
-Hours are flexible.  Willing to travel (in or near Oakland)
-Email or call 415-516-6742;
-Rate is $70/hour

graduated from college and I finally have some availability
and would like to find some new students. I have a major in
Biology and a minor in Chemistry and Neurosciences, with an

I am a Brown University student and I have been tutoring for over six years. I 
can tutor all science up to eighth grade, high school biology and environmental 
sciences as well as psychology. I am living in Oakland this summer from June 
15-August 15 and can commute to most of the East Bay area. 
Recommendations available. Hourly rate is negotiable.

I am an undergraduate at Stanford and have three year's
experience in tutoring, tutor training, curriculum design
and teaching. I specialize in gifted, dyslexic and 
acalculaic students, and focus on giving my students enough 
understanding that they rediscover their love of learning. 
For the Summer of 2012-13, I am accepting high school and 
university students in high school environmental science, 
biology, algebraic and calculus-based classical physics, and 
inorganic and organic chemistry who either seek review last 
year's material or learn new material with the view of 
placing out of their next years science class. I have taught 
and tutored Chemistry for four years through Bentley School 
in Lafayette, the Department of Chemistry at Stanford, and 
the College of Chemistry at Cal. Outside of tutoring, I also 
ran volunteer training workshops at the Chabot Space and 
Science Center, work for the Oakland Public Library, and ran 
a non- profit tutoring service.

I am a scientist and informal educator with a masters degree from the University 
of Washington. I have more than 10 years experience working with children and 
specialize in developmental psychology. 

I have directed science and safety education programs with several non-profit 
organizations, including the American Red Cross.

I currently direct a humanitarian campaign in San Francisco that connects 
students across the world. In order to supplement my humble income I also 
offer myself services as a tutor and childcare expert. 

I offer: 
+ K-12 tutoring in most subjects
+ In-home child care

One-time, long- and short-term opportunities are considered, so please 
inquire. I am also willing to discuss care for groups of children, given my 
experience running classrooms.

I understand the rush and stress of being a parent. I hope that I can help you 
stay on top of of it all!
