Apr 08 2014

I am currently an undergraduate at Tufts University and am looking to tutor or 
provide childcare when I return to Berkeley during the summer. I have experience 
looking after children ages 6 through 9 years old and have tutored elementary, 
middle, and high school students. I graduated from the International 
Baccalaureate (IB) program at Berkeley High School and received the IB diploma 
my senior year. I have experience as a writing, math, Physics and Latin tutor, and 
would feel comfortable tutoring in any general subject area. I also have been 
trained as an early literacy and reading tutor at Tufts University. I have worked as 
a camp counselor at Camp Kee Tov, a Jewish day camp, for the past 4 summers 
and have provided childcare for a number of Kee Tov families. I will be home 
early May and am available through late July. I can provide references from the 
Director of Camp Kee Tov and coordinates of the College and Career Center at 
Berkeley High School.

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

I incorporate elements of mindfulness, yoga, taiji, and 
qigong, for which I have years training by a master. This is 
profound in helping kids concentrate and feel less 
overwhelmed.

this is important information on where to focus attention 
and where to be particularly sensitive and supportive.
Experience:
-B.A. Physics and Astronomy, U.C. Berkeley
-20+ years experience as a professional musician in 
classical guitar and viola
-Traveler to 25+ countries
-Inspired to share that math and science are interesting and 
exciting
-Patient and compassionate while focused
-Help kids see simplicity and overcome fear of math 
-Holistic approach drawing on years of training in taiji, 
qigong, and meditation
-Successfully overcame my own math troubles in school
-Tailor lessons based on EMPATHY for unique kids 
personalities 
-All ages welcome

Greetings BPN!
After 7 years building a successful tutoring practice in San Francisco, I am 
shunning that lovely new bridge in favor of being close to my own kids while 
serving students in the East Bay, starting in June 2014!
4-10th Grade 
Child-centered holistic help for all-kinds of students. I've been helpful to many 
with Executive Function/ADHD struggles, especially in combination with dyslexia, 
dysgraphia, dyscalculia, Vis/Aud Processing struggles, etc. Is your child seen as 
precocious? Sullen? Oppositional? Unfocused? Does she feel misunderstood and 
have zero motivation? I'd love to meet you both to see what we can do to 
improve writing, math, organization, self-advocacy skills, and the experience of 
school on a day to day basis!

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.

Hello Berkeley parents,

I'm a recent Berkeley grad with B.A.'s in Applied Math and Physics, and I'm a 
great communicator. I was the president of my house in the Berkeley Student 
Cooperative, which means I have facilitated meetings, moderated conflicts, and 
have been trained in communication skills. I was an athlete/team captain in 
highschool, so I understand the importance of being a positive roll model.

Compassion is a personal and professional philosophy of mine, so I have a lot of 
patience, and I want to push my students to learn. I have experience with 
teaching, but it has been mostly unpaid for friends and other students.

I would like to charge $40/hour, but am more than happy to negotiate for 
families that cannot afford that. In fact if anyone really needs a free tutor, I 
would enjoy taking on one student given appropriate circumstances.

Email me with questions, I am happy to answer.

Dear Parents, 

Hello! I am a 2008 UC Berkeley honors graduate who currently resides in 
Berkeley and saving for law school admission next school year. Since

regular basis, as well as financial need. Feel free to contact me at

Cal graduate student with a strong passion for physics/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!

of current and graduated BHS students available upon request. I have M.A.s in 
physics and mathematics (from UC Berkeley and Cambridge, respectively).

My name is Iden, and I'm a senior at SFSU looking for
tutoring work throughout the Oakland, Piedmont, and Berkeley
area. I can tutor Math subjects through Pre-Calculus, SAT
and ACT test prep, many Science subjects, and English!
I will be graduating SFSU with a B.S. in Biology with a
concentration in Physiology this fall.

I can travel to homes, businesses, or libraries for tutoring
lessons, and my rate is $50/hour on a sliding scale. I have
over 6 years of tutoring experience, including working 2
years for The Princeton Review. All of my students have
enjoyed my style because they get the full picture and learn
about the ways subjects and ideas are connected and related,
which builds a strong foundation not only for the subjects I
tutor, but for all more advanced subjects after that.

Please feel free to call or email me about appointments or
any other questions you might have. Excellent references are
available upon request.

Former teacher (California credential) will tutor in my Lamorinda home or yours.
My graduate background in psychology and experience working with all sorts of 
children as an attorney, mediator and teacher, plus successful tutoring of my 
own four children (including learning disabled) mean I know how to inspire and 
motivate your child, and can often remedy a learning problem that has not been 
properly diagnosed.  Accelerated learning for the gifted, fun reading lessons for 
eager preschoolers, drills and memorization, problem solving math for middle 
schoolers, writing for all ages are some of my specialties.  References.
