Tutor in Berkeley, California

Experienced, patient and caring tutor & former molecular biologist & public school science/math teacher will help all students achieve better science and math grades and improve SAT/ACT, PSAT & GRE test scores. I will devise a program based on your goals and learning style that offers you or your child a clear path toward higher achievement on tests, quizzes and exams.

Students will see a real increase in their understanding of the subject material through careful analysis and discussion of the questions and answers to their homework/test problems. The student will receive a step by step framework detailing how to address each type of problem they need to solve. They will then be in a stronger position to apply this knowledge toward solving similar but more challenging exam questions which are the key to achieving high performance.

I offer tutoring in the following subjects & standardized tests for middle and high school students:
• Biology and Genetics, General, SAT II or AP
• Chemistry, General, SAT II or AP
• SAT, PSAT, ACT Exams, all sections
• Math including Algebra 1&2, Geometry, Trigonometry and Pre- Calculus
• English reading and writing skills
• General organization, study skills and homework support

ABOUT ME
I hold an M.S. degree in molecular & cell biology and a B.S. degree in environmental science from U.C. Berkeley. I’ve worked over fifteen years in the bio-pharmaceutical industry, both as a lab researcher and as a business development manager. My teaching experience includes six years as a middle & high school science and math teacher, as well as several years of tutoring experience.

I believe that all students deserve a tutor who is kind, patient and knowledgeable; who can relate to each students individual needs and challenge and encourage them to achieve beyond their expectations of themselves. My goal is to help inspire young students to gain successful admission to quality universities and move toward successful careers in industry or academia. I have worked successfully with students of all races and socio-economic backgrounds. I’ve also worked with many students having some type of learning disability or attention disorder and have found ways to help them as well.

My standard rate is $45/hr. I am currently offering an introductory rate of $35/hr. for the first session to new clients only. I’m available to meet at your home, library, or any public place of your choosing. Send me a note describing what sort of tutoring you’re looking for and any relevant details. I promise you a rapid response.
