I'm a nuclear engineering grad student at UC Berkeley - GPA/3.96. I've
been tutoring since I was a kid. My strength is in empathetic teaching. I
have creative ways of reframing questions and helping students use
their own intuition to develop methods for solving problems. I help
motivate meaning for the material they wish to focus on and establish
work habits that support long term success.

Hello! I'm Lena. I am a Berkeley native, tutoring Chemistry, Biology, and Environmental Sciences (as well as Latin and Writing) in the Bay Area. I hold my B.S. in Environmental Toxicology from UC Davis. I?ve been tutoring independently for over 3 years, and I am delighted to continue working with so many wonderful families in this community. I?ve worked for companies including GRADTutors, (math and science tutoring for UC Davis students) and Classroom Matters (all subjects tutoring for Bay Area 6th-12th grade students). I've tutored students from the classrooms of Mr. Bissell (BHS chem), Mr. Glimme (BHS AP chem) and Mr. Cruickshanks (Oakland Tech Honors Chem), as well as several Bay Area AP biology teachers. I like to incorporate study skills and time management techniques into whatever subject I am tutoring. Please email me at lenachervin [at] for more information. I offer flexible rates, and can provide references upon request. Lena Chervin lenachervin[at]

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.

Berkeley Parents or young inclined learners of chemistry, My name is Wes Winter, I am a Chemistry Major, and as a UCBerkeley Graduate, I am interested in tutoring chemistry. I have six years of tutoring experience which I received from privately tutoring, tutoring for schools, and working at the Lawrence Hall of Science as a teacher. This past year I worked with five young Berkeley high school students which benefitted positively from our sessions. All of my students hailed from different schools in the East Bay Area and had different levels of chemistry experience. I am pretty flexible and can come over for emergency sessions too. If you have any chemically related questions please feel free to call or text me at (661) 713-9081 Wesley Winter wswinter92[at] (661) 713-9081
