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 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

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

My name is Kevin Arnold. I've been working as a high school teacher and
academic coach/tutor within the Berkeley community for 12 years. I'm well 
versed in the local curriculums and academic culture of Berkeley.
Currently, I'm accepting new students who are in need of a tutor or academic 
coach for english composition, essay and writing skills, study and 
organizational skills, SAT prep, and college research/applications.
Over time, I've learned that good tutoring is more than knowing a subject ?
it's knowing how to connect with students and teach in a relaxed and engaging
way. I approach my students in a good-humored, confident and knowledgeable
manner. This approach enables my students to feel relaxed, focused and 
interested, which allows them to truly learn a subject. Please feel free to contact 
me for a free consultation, and explore my website for more information. 
Cheers - Kevin Arnold

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.
