Expert Math and Physics Tutor - All Levels - Children and Adults

I have tutored Mathematics and Physics in the East Bay since 1994 and taught full-time for 7 years at two local private high schools. I am an experienced teacher with empathy and enthusiasm, regardless of whether my students are struggling or excelling.

I focus on building students' confidence through reinforcing existing knowledge, increasing competence in required skills, and encouraging students not to fear making mistakes, which are a crucial part of the learning process. Meanwhile, I build comprehension by placing new ideas in context and highlight the connections between topics which are so often overlooked.

Daniel Mayeri in Berkeley is an excellent math tutor. My daughter says he was extremely helpful while taking physics and calculus.

He teaches in his office at Bancroft and Fulton Streets.

When my daughter was at Berkeley High, she struggled with both math and physics, and Daniel Mayeri came to the rescue. He was a great tutor -- my daughter said he was so much better than her actual teachers. He knows the BHS curriculum well and tutors lots of kids going there. Kind, patient, and knows what he's talking about and how to explain it. I don't know where you live, but he teaches from an office across the street from the Cal Berkeley campus, at Bancroft and Oxford. http://mayeri-education.com/

I highly recommend Daniel Mayeri as a math tutor as he is excellent. I have freshman and a senior who work with Daniel and both expressed that he is the best math tutor they have had. Daniel is thorough in explaining current class concepts but also prepares them for the upcoming lessons. Daniel reinforces their understanding of material and provides them with strategies in solving problems. He identifies my son's weaknesses, works to improve them and helps my sons gain the confidence in math and sometimes other topics if time permits. Daniel's office is conveniently located in downtown Berkeley. Daniel can be contacted at http://www.berkeleymathtutor.com/. Elaine

RE: Tutor for AP Physics B

Daniel Mayeri is an outstanding tutor. My daughter went to him weekly during her entire senior year at Berkeley High to get help and review for AP Physics B. He presented the information well and, if she didn't understand the material, he would try another way to explain the it. He was very creative and persistent in ensuring she got it. My daughter was not struggling in the class, but she loved having a chance to review the material with Daniel. He help her get another angle on the information, understand it at a deeper level, and solidify it for her. In addition to being a talented tutor, he is also a very nice person.

RE: Math tutor for understimulated 5th grader

I would enthusiastically recommend my daughter's math tutor Daniel Mayeri. His website is www.berkeleymathtutor.com. My fourth grade daughter started working with Daniel shortly after the start of third grade. She was doing just fine in math at the time, but we felt she could be challenged to learn a bit more advanced material for her age. Daniel has been fantastic. Although most of Daniel's students are in high school, he has shown that he can work well with younger students. My daughter genuinely looks forward to her afternoon sessions with Daniel. Her confidence has increased tremendously. The sessions are rigorous but fun and relaxed. We plan to continue for the foreseeable future. We find Daniel to be extremely professional, and at the same time, terrific with kids and young people. Prior to signing up with Daniel, we talked to a few other tutors. Daniel's rate is within the range of most tutors in the area. Jenny K

Daniel Mayeri (http://mayeri-education.com/) has been our son's math tutor since 2011. Our son needs a ''boost'' where math is concerned. Daniel is great. He is very organized and professional, very practical, knows the curriculum and connects well. He has helped our son keep his head above water and better. Highly recommended. Parent of a 14 yr old

I highly recommend Daniel Mayeri as a math tutor. Daniel took my daughter from a C+ to an A- in Geometry last year. She also won an award for that subject. Daniel helped her really understand the concepts and analyze problems in different ways so that she became comfortable with the material. Daniel is an excellent teacher, and he'll be helping her with Algebra II this year. Susan

Great Math Tutor: I highly recommend Daniel Mayeri as a math tutor. He taught one of my children in high school, and when I found out that he was doing private tutoring I asked him to work with my other child who is now in high school. Daniel is passionate about math, and his passion helps kids to get interested in math. He has all kinds of strategies and techniques for teaching difficult concepts and working through complex problems. He also makes sure that the students understand why they are doing things rather than having them merely memorize how to get the answer. He has really helped build up my child's confidence in math and has even made her more interested in the subject. His website is http://mayeri-education.com or berkeleymathtutor.com. Barbara A.

I would like to highly recommend Daniel Mayeri as an excellent mathematics tutor. When I moved both of my teenage daughters to California last August(2010) we soon discovered that the kids where falling behind. It took me most of the first semester to find a tutor. My High School student was quickly approaching finals and she was completely lost. I called Daniel explained our situation, he not only fit my daughter into his busy schedule but was able to cover the entire semesters work in three sessions prior to finals. The outcome was more than my daughter could have hoped for, through Daniels expert command of the subject and his ability to instill confidence she was able to get an A on her geometry final. Now both my daughters meet with Daniel once a week for maintenance and a clear explanation of the prior week material. Neither daughter worries about finals anymore, in math anyway. C.A.

RE: Math tutor for 14-y-o with low math skills

I would like to recommend our daughter's exceptional math tutor, Daniel Mayeri. She has been working with Daniel for the last 3 years. She began working with Daniel her Freshman year in High School, and continues to work him as a Senior. She had worked with two other tutors in the past and never found them to be at all helpful or supportive. Her experience with Daniel has been the opposite. Daniel has really identified her weaknesses and strengths in math and found a way to strengthen her skills and self confidence. He has helped her to understand the strategies for solving math problems, and the underlying concepts.She has never felt judged or inferior when struggling with challenging math assignments. Daniel is always positive and has an amazing way of keeping a student on task without stressing or frustrating them. Our daughter avoided math in the past and saw herself as incapable of succeeding in this domain.Daniel has really allowed her to overcome her negativity and anxiety. She has done exceptionally well throughout High School in each level of math, and we attribute this to Daniel's skill and support. sheri
