Hello Parents! Aside from being an amazing writing coach, I'm also a great math tutor! I've been teaching and tutoring for nearly my entire adult life (thirteen years). Before I began tutoring, I graduated from Berkeley High, Columbia University, and CSU East Bay. Students I work with show dramatic improvements in ability, confidence, and self esteem. One of my main goals as a math tutor is to convince students: Yes! You are good at math! I tutor mainly middle and high school scholars, but I have assisted younger students in the past. I'm currently working with several Berkeley families and I can provide references if needed! Please email or call me with any questions you might have. Thanks for your time, Cole Cole Filipek ndf5[at] 510-910-5727

Hello Berkeley Parents. My name is Dick LeBlanc. I taught Math at BHS for nearly 38 years. I taught every subject except statistics. I was co-director of the Cal-BHS diversity project and was department chair for 3 years. I am now retired and am enjoying tutoring. When I taught at Berkeley High, I paid a lot of attention to the skills of Special Ed teachers, so I am good at listening, and explaining in many different ways. I am a Math Major from Cal, graduating in 1965. I charge $50 per hour and usually tutor at the Main branch of the Berkeley library, less than a block from BHS. I'd like to hear about your concerns and see if I can help. Dick LeBlanc dickleblanc[at] 510-234-3524

Hello, Berkeley Parents Network. I have taught and tutored Mathematics and Statistics for many years, in many different contexts and for many different kinds of students including those from local High Schools and Colleges. Some students? comments: One of the best teachers I have ever had. .. the best explainer of things I have ever met. I really felt that I was not just a student being force fed ideas, but part of a group of people including the teacher, who were attempting to achieve something! He allowed me to truly understand the concepts behind the formulas. I prefer to tutor those in junior and senior High School classes: precalculus, AP Calculus and Statistics but am available for other levels as well. I have a PhD in Mathematics from UC Berkeley and am now retired from teaching. Contact: Jim Shilleto, $50/hour, Berkeley, Albany, El Cerrito, Kensington phone: (510) 527-5102, email: berkchocbosco [at] Jim Shilleto berkchocbosco[at] (510) 527-5102

I am offering my services as a tutor for mathematics and physics. For mathematics I offer tutoring for algebra, geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus, and AP calculus (AB and BC). For Physics I offer tutoring in AP physics C (mechanics, electricity, and magnetism). I have a PhD in physics and have worked as a post doctoral fellow at the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory and in industry for over 35 years. I have recently retired from full time employment and have started a tutoring practice. During this past year I have worked as a volunteer tutor in physics at El Cerrito High School and in geometry at Berkeley High Summer School. I have begun private tutoring, in particular working with a student taking calculus at Berkeley Community College. This involved solving problems with derivatives, integrals, trigonometry, algebra, limits and continuity. My availability is flexible and I charge $35/hour. References available upon request.

Hi Berkeley parents! I'd love to tutor your son or daughter in math! I studied engineering at Dartmouth College, where I served as a teaching assistant and taught complex mathematical concepts to fellow students. I've been tutoring bay area students full time all year, and now I'm hoping to find some summer school students! I've tutored 2nd grade all the way up through college-level statistics. Mathematical concepts were not innately easy for me to learn; I too had to sit down and patiently conquer calculus. This sets me up to be a much more skilled and compassionate teacher than a typical ''math whiz''. I will give your son or daughter the tools and confidence to succeed. My rate is $45/hour. Happy to provide references. Looking forward to hearing from you! Best, Brynne Brynne Weeks brynneweeks[at] 314-609-9700

Hey there! My name is Christine and I'm a recent math graduate from UC Berkeley . I have almost a decade of diverse tutoring experience, from the UC Berkeley Learning Center, Cal Teach, AVID, and private students. In addition to applied math, I also studied math and science education at Berkeley, and learned very useful strategies to engage students and help them understand the material on a deep level. I'm very passionate about helping students feel more confident in their math abilities. I also help students with reading, writing, and all aspects of the college application process (SAT, choosing the right school, writing the personal statement, etc). Send me an email if you or someone you know is looking for an enthusiastic, creative and dedicated tutor! Cheers, Christine p.s.

Biology and Math Tutor: UC Berkeley PhD Hello BPN parents! I'm a biology and math tutor (elementary math, algebra, and geometry) and have tutored students of ages from elementary school to college. I'm still amazed at how effective one-on-one tutoring can be. One high school biology student recently went from getting a ''D'' on a test to scoring 94% on his next test after only a few weeks of tutoring. My approach is to have a dialog with the student instead of just lecturing, and I ask many questions to find out exactly where trouble in understanding occurs, and then focus on those points. After discussing a topic, I have the student explain it back to me or solve a problem on their own to check their understanding. I just love it when the light bulb goes on and a student suddenly understands a concept and says, ''Oh!'' My PhD is in biology from UC Berkeley and I have worked as a staff scientist at UCSF.

I have a PhD in mathematics and a BS in engineering. I have 7 years of classroom experience, teaching statistics and calculus at University of Maryland and other colleges. I have been doing paid and unpaid tutoring for 25 years now. My son finished medical school last year, he also has a degree in Biochemical engineering. My daughter is a junior at UC Berkeley studying Energy Engineering. I always volunteered at my children's schools. Now that my children do not need me as much as before; I try to help other children more. Because of my great education, I am quite knowledgeable . However, my real value stems from my natural patience. My students all say that I put them at ease and that makes them feel free to learn. I am also able to explain the same thing in many different ways, or find different tools to help them learn and retain the material. I love teaching and I hope to be with the kids for many many years. I can provide references. Hediye Gun hediyegun[at] 5107053520
