I am a third year Biochemistry PhD student at UC Berkeley,
based in Berkeley but can commute to nearby cities for
tutoring. I have teaching experience in individual tutoring,
planning and lecturing for courses, and evaluating exams. My
expertise is best suited for helping students in chemistry
and biology courses, although I can provide advise in
physics and computer science if need be.

Science tutor grades 6-12.  Highlights: Raised (and home 
schooled) my own seven kids- - 2 Cal graduates (see 
Sistersllc.com, Maggie and Christy are on home page); 1 
UCSB; 1 now at Princeton; 1 now at New England 
Conservatory; 1 now high school home schooling ; #7, my 
only son, is quarterback at local middle school doing 
great academically. I'm a science teacher in mainly-
Latino middle school. Competing across diverse East Bay 
District with 30 schools, my students won six out of 25 
Science Fair prizes. My predecessor school's average 
science rating went from 55 to 85 where I was lead 
science teacher. My method: I was oldest of 7 kids in my 
own growing-up family. To help my siblings, I made 
learning fun with little games and contests. That's how I 
raised my children. I help unleash talent. I will work 
afternoons but prefer Saturday and Sunday. $75 an hour; I 
will meet in a Starbucks or drive to your house.

Hi there, 

My name is Jack McGee, I am a medical school applicant 
(recently accepted!), and science and math tutor in the Bay 
Area. I did well on the MCAT exam, and I have experience 
tutoring algebra, biology, and chemistry to elementary, 
high school as well as college students.

I am available to tutor in the evening times and weekends. 
I am mobile, meaning I can meet you at your home, or a 
designated area. I am a professional, polite, and an 
empathetic person. I relate to youths very well.

I charge 20 per hour, though is all based on a sliding 
scale. If you are unable to afford this, we can talk about 
different options. 

I look forward to hearing from you!

chemistry students, and am somewhat familiar with his 
curriculum.

I have been tutoring independently in the Bay Area for 
over two years, and I am delighted to continue working 
with so many wonderful families in this community. I also 
enjoy tutoring Latin, Algebra, and Writing.  I like to

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.

EXPERIENCE: I just tutored a great high school student who earned a 4 on May 
2014 AP Physics B. His parents kindly wrote a review:
http://parents.berkeley.edu/recommend/tutors/science.html

This semester will be my third time TA-ing an intro-astronomy class. I meet with 
sections of 15+ students to teach how to solve problems. I have learned to work 
with different learning styles, which (hopefully) has made me a more effective 
teacher.

EDUCATION: I have a MA in Astrophysics from UCB and a BS in Physics, 
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.

Subjects: Math (prealg-calc 2), chemistry (basic, AP, organic), Physics (basic, 
AP), SAT preparation

Greetings Parents!

My backround is in chemistry; I have a BS from the university of colorado at 
boulder and spent 2 years as the manager of a biodiesel laboratory doing 
catalyst research. Since then I have been teaching at a non-traditional 
highschool where day to day I work one on one with students in math and 
science. I am not simply a teacher, or a tutor, but a mentor, and can help your 
child not just to complete their homework but to understand the material 
presented, leading to better test grades and classroom participation. By using 
multiple resources and techniques I have had much success helping students 
to overcome obstacles, even severe ones such as learning disabilities and 
motivational issues.
I have also been tutoring SAT prep for 2 years.

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 
students.

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

Subjects:

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 JessSund@gmail.com

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.
