Are you looking for an experienced, reliable, and kind tutor
for your middle/high school child? 

My name is Jonathan and I help students discover the
pleasures of learning.  I work to find how students learn best and use those 
methods to maximize their ability to learn quickly.   

I have successfully worked with various learning challenges and gear my 
teaching strategies to individual students. 

I creatively approach each subject and student, optimizing
their learning style and needs.  I am patient and playful, and I strive to make 
learning fun and enjoyable.

I have been tutoring in the Berkeley area for the past 3 years and have seen 
how my time with my students boosts their knowledge, confidence, and 
grades.   I specialize in tutoring Biology, Algebra, and Geometry.  I also have 
experience tutoring Spanish, History, Writing, Psychology, Earth Science, and 

My rate is $50/hr.

My name is Kevin Arnold. I've been working as a teacher, academic 
tutor and homework coach throughout the thriving Berkeley community 
for over 14 years. 

Currently, I'm accepting new students who are seeking to improve their 
study skills and writing, and learn how to organize and manage their 
own educations. 

Over time, I've learned that effective tutoring is more than knowing a 
subject - it's knowing how to connect with students and teach in a 
relaxed and inspiring way. I approach my students in a good-humored, 
confident and knowledgeable manner. This approach allows them to 
feel relaxed and focused, which truly allows them to learn a subject or 
new skill. Please feel free to give me a call for a consultation, and to 
explore my website for more information.

I will be teaching MindFlow, a Speedreading and Positive Mindset class for 
students monthly in the Bay Area.

MindFlow combines speed reading, positive mindset, and get taking strategy. 
Students increase their reading speeds as much as four times and improve their 
reading performance an average of 13%. The class helps those ready to dive into 
preparation as well as those seeking to upgrade their current study approach. 

I developed MindFlow as part of the core curriculum of my company, Test Prep 
San Francisco. In addition to Mindflow, I offer workshops, test anxiety relief 
coaching, and individual tutoring for students of all ages. I draw from hypnosis, 
NLP, Integrated Life Coaching, Mindfulness, Sound therapy, Mindfulness, and

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.
