Hi, my name is Mike.  I graduated from Yale University in 
May, 2014 with a B.A. in comparative literature, and now I 
am working as a private tutor in the Bay Area.

I specialize in tutoring English literature and composition 
(including college essays), SAT & ACT preparation, and all 
levels of Spanish.

I have been tutoring high school students for the past six 
years, and I have had excellent results.  A student to whom 
I taught AP calculus went from struggling in the class to 
achieving a five on the AP exam.  The mother of a student 
whom I helped with college essays told me that her son 
looked forward to meeting with me every week because it 
made him feel confident and relaxed about the application 
process.  A third student told me that, in contrast to 
tutors she had had in the past, I explained SAT math 
concepts in a way that made them perfectly clear to her.

I look forward to hearing from you!

To Whom It May Concern:

I am a 23-year-old Psychobiology, B.S. graduate from 
UCLA, desiring to enter the medical profession in 
pediatrics. I am very friendly, energetic, responsible, 
organized, and patient, which has gone far in my previous 
9 years of tutoring experience!

I have extensive experience working with children of all 
ages through counseling for summer camps, babysitting, 
and tutoring various subjects. I also volunteered in the 
pediatric department and NICU in Ronald Reagan and Santa 
Monica hospitals, and also with BIA to teach children 
with autism. I enjoy helping children learn and catering 
to each child's specific needs.

Overall, it would be such a pleasure tutoring your child! 
Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you soon!

My name is Avery. In May I graduated from UC Berkeley with 
honors, and I am now reading, writing, have done a little 
journalism, applying for MFA programs and offering tutoring 
in reading and writing. For the past month or so, it has 
been a joy tutoring a 6th grader and daughter of a Berkeley 
Visiting Scholar and a sophomore high school student in 
writing and potentially history for both students soon. I 
have been trained at the Center for Academic Excellence at 
Mills College and at the Student Learning Center (SLC) at UC 
Berkeley. For the spring semester at the SLC, I tutored five 
students in writing on a weekly basis and worked with 
students occasionally at the student drop in center. I 
received excellent feedback on my stimulating, caring, 
attentive, useful, and challenging services. I am charging a 
hopefully affordable 25-30 dollars per hour and can travel 
throughout the Bay Area to meet you. Looking forward to 
speaking soon.

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 
writing and study skills, and learn how to organize and manage their 
own educations. Also, I help students with their college applications 
and improve their SAT/ACT scores. 

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.

Hello, my name is Rhys Conger. I just moved back to Berkeley 
and I am a recent graduate from St. John's College in Santa 
Fe, New Mexico. 

For those interested: St. John's is one of the few Great

working through it at your own pace. 

My fee is $30 per hour.

Hi! My name is Sarah Lewites, and I'm a senior in the IB program at Berkeley 
High School. I've posted here before in a different category, but I decided 
''multiple subjects'' made the most sense.
I have tutored for 4 years at Berkeley High as part of a volunteer requirement, 
so I am experienced in working with students of various grade levels.
I tutor in Math, English, and basic Spanish (the first 3 high school years). Math 
is my strongest subject (I take BC calculus), but I have taken IB courses in all of 
these areas, and have worked with students in these subjects from grades 6-
I also volunteered in the English Language Development department at Berkeley 
High, for students learning English as a second language, and I am comfortable 
speaking Spanish for students who prefer it.
I can work during the next few weeks as students prepare for finals, as well as 
through the summer.

Thanks so much! Please email me with any questions at

I love working with students of all ages; from my experience as a teacher and 
tutor, I've witnessed again and again that academic success and confidence 
go hand-in-hand, and take a very human, nurturing approach to tutoring. My 
specialty is English, but I am happy to help with simple math, history, science, 
and general study and organizational skills. 

I have taught both 3rd grade special education and 3rd grade enrichment, and 
have been working one on one with students of different ages on and off 
since I was in high school. 

A recent review:

''Morgan has been working with my 10 year old daughter to strengthen her 
writing and reading comprehension. She is warm, wonderful and patient. She 
is really good at explaining written and oral concepts which seem so abstract 
to some kids. My daughter feels more confident about her writing skills. 
Morgan encourages creative thinking and offers plenty of praise along the 
way.'' -Nanette M.

All my best,

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

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

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.
