I am a high school math teacher with more than a decade of experience teaching algebra, geometry, and algebra 2. I am comfortable working with students of any age, level, or ability. I specialize in making these subjects understandable and simple. I hold a master's degree in education and multiple California teaching credentials.... [more]

If you were stranded on a deserted island, could you reinvent Algebra? Calculus? Trigonometry? I could! Not that that would be the most practical thing to do, but once you understand the basic concepts, you will be able to do the same. I am a strong believer in understanding concepts and knowing fundamentals, NOT in doing math by rote. I will certainly help you get your homework done and get better grades, but I will also make sure that you understand it! I teach students techniques... [more]

I began tutoring Algebra 2 in high school. I spent a semester tutoring Algebra and Geometry with the Sylvan Learning Center in Piedmont. I led after-school Algebra and Geometry tutoring at Oakland Tech. I attended UCSB, with studies abroad in Alaska, New Zealand, and India, and received a degree in Geography. I began tutoring math in high school and have always enjoyed teaching and working with students. As a substitute teacher, I worked at over 20 schools in the Bay Area, private and public, and saw the need for more individualized education. I led an after-school math program at Oakland [more]

In addition to teaching in private schools, I have worked as a math tutor for over forty years, with students ranging from third grade to adult. I have also run the tutoring program for a private school, been a math consultant for a public alternative school, and worked at an educational clinic for children with learning disabilities. I have also volunteered at my daughter's elementary school, and coached their teams for the local Math Super Bowl for the past four years. In high school, I par... [more]

As a math major, I was one of the few who took Geometry again in college, just to master it. I have been tutoring Geometry since 2004. Geometry is the first time many students learn about the abstract parts of mathematics and this can be difficult to wrap your head around. I enjoy making Geometry a little more understandable. I also am very good at constructions, thought that is usually only one chapter of the class. You will also get to learn the basics of a proof, and all about shapes. There is a lot of memorization in Geometry, which few students are prepared for. Hopefully w [more]

Having had tutors throughout my academic career, I understand the huge impact a tutor can make in a student's life. A great tutor not only helps a student feel more CONFIDENT about their study habits, but also challenges them to CONTINUE LEARNING about subjects that interest them. I'm MEL and I'd love to work with you and your family! I have over 10+ YEARS of private TUTORING EXPERIENCE in subjects such as MATH, ENGLISH, STUDY SKILLS, and SAT and ACT TEST PREP from PRE-K through COLLEGE. I s... [more]

Currently I am a teacher of Chemistry and Physics at a CA High School. Previously I have been an educational professional for 40 years, starting as a teacher of Math and Physics in High school to AP/1st year undergraduate level and I hold teaching credentials in both California and the UK. Later I taught Chemistry (the subject of my degree) to the same standard. I have many former students who have studied at the top UK Universities; Oxford, Cambridge, Bristol, Durham, Imperial London and so ... [more]

I am a retired high school math teacher in California. I taught high school algebra, pre-algebra, geometry, algebra 2 and a course called financial math, which I had the opportunity to create. I enjoy working with students who are motivated to learn. I enjoy curriculum development, and have received high marks in the curriculum I have helped develop. I would like to keep an active interest in education. I work well with students especially in a one-to-one situation. I look forward to work... [more]

I really enjoy helping students reach their goals. Your goal may be "getting" math. Or doing better on a hard test than you ever have before. Or improving your English. Piano-playing is also a joy -- as much for you to learn as for me to teach. Let me help you learn better by making the most of your strengths and overcoming your weaknesses. We set up a plan just for you. You can measure your success along the way. You may need to meet twice weekly, or only for a few se... [more]

Having been and continuing to be a student myself, I find that teachers and tutors can be and often are more than just educators. They provide students with the motivation they need when a task feels impossible to complete and the praise they deserve when they get the job done. Moreover, they realize that every student has potential and with the right kind of help, they won't just do well with their academics, they will strive. Having been a student myself, I know what it feels like to have a... [more]
