I'm an expert, professionally trained tutor with 15 years of experience who can help your child feel more confident, comfortable, and successful academically. I create a program tailored to your child that will improve their school experience and their self-worth. I help children move through resistance and fear to identify their strengths so they can become successful, motivated students who excel in school and in life. I specialize in working with children who are especially sensitive, and often include mindfulness and meditation techniques in my sessions, which helps students build confidence, increase focus, and ease anxiety. I offer academic tutoring for children and teens, and my areas of expertise are with writing, reading, and English. I provide help with homework, time management, and organization, and offer ISEE, HSPT, SSAT, and SAT prep in the reading, grammar, sentence completion, and writing sections. Many excellent references! Katrina Martin katrina[at]katrinadreamer.com 510-761-8047

About Me My name is Jackie Randazzo and I am a 27-year-old East Bay resident. I have a Masters Degree in Public Affairs and currently work for the Bay Area Discovery Museum, a children's museum in Sausalito. I have previous experience tutoring; specifically, I have worked with grades 2 - 4 in math and reading. Tutoring Style and Goals I believe that children deserve to be respected and treated as collaborators in their learning. I ask open-ended questions to facilitate problem-solving and critical thinking skills, provide positive feedback, and ensure a fun and comfortable learning environment. My goal is to instill a passion for learning, build confidence, and develop skills in your child that will be utilized well beyond tutoring sessions and the classroom.

Are you in need of a tutor who can help your child with all their school needs - from improving grade scores to getting more organized or prepared for tests? Would you like an experienced teacher that has also tutored and enjoys even the tough subjects? Then I may be your gal. I have B.S. in Biology and enjoy learning and passing along my excitement for both math and science. I'm animated and have a sense of humor which helps kids have fun without even knowing it and I connect easily on their level. And most importantly, can build their self-confidence and ?can-do? attitude. I can teach kids how to get good grades and instill self-discipline. I'm equally well versed in other subjects as well. In addition, I offer services for summer break to keep skills sharp. If that sounds like something your family needs, please contact me at JessSund [at] gmail.com Jessica jesssund[at]gmail.com

My name is Avery, I would love to be in touch with you. I graduated from UC Berkeley with honors May 2014. During the spring semester, I had the privilege of working with students in college writing at the UC Berkeley Student Learning Center. I met with five students on a weekly basis and worked at the drop-in center. I received wonderful weekly training and feedback from my students and supervisor on attentive, layered, and useful sessions. I am also a trained peer tutor through the Mills College Center for Academic Excellence for American History, Critical Reading and Expository Writing, and Fundamentals of Psychology. This academic year, I tutored English with three middle school students and one high school student. Our relationalities are so meaningful to me. I am reading, writing, volunteering for the Anti Eviction Mapping Project, Narratives of Displacement Oral History project and applying for English MFA. Looking forward to speaking soon!

For writing, I offer encouragement, excellent grammar, and analytical rigor. In math, I provide encouragement, meaning, and structure in problem solving. I love statistics, social sciences. I coach with a light touch. My teaching success derives from my community work and my empathy from doctoral economics after hiatus. A tutoring recess may include body mechanics for jumping (ballet, basketball) or posture for efficient movement, self-esteem My academics: UC Berkeley B.A.; masters training at Cornell U; 2 yrs doctoral urban economics on scholarship. Have edited well-published professors. Example of my teaching logic through sentence hierarchy: Excavate main idea from its burial down the hierarchy of this sentence: ?The defining issue of our time is how to keep that promise alive.? Note 2nd problem: ?defining issue? inserts unintended subject of Which Issue. My edit: ?Keeping alive America?s promise defines this nation's work, today and always.? $35/hr Karen Westmont KarenWestmont[at]gmail.com 607 227 2954

Hi! I am a rising senior at Vassar College and am home in Berkeley for the summer (until late August). I am available to tutor Spanish, basic Chinese (Mandarin), and ESL. I am fluent in Spanish and have had most of my prior experience tutoring in that language. I studied abroad in Madrid last fall and have been learning Spanish since elementary school. I started learning Mandarin in high school and consider myself proficient. I have declared minors in both subjects. I am a native speaker of English and have learned about the pedagogy of ESL through education courses. I believe I would be especially helpful for any children who speak Spanish or Mandarin as a native language and need to learn English for school. I am willing to meet students at their house or at a convenient location. I ask for $25/hour for one student, and the fee for group tutoring can be negotiated. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns about my tutoring services. Mija Lieberman mijaliebeman[at]gmail.com 5105040482

I am currently an incoming third year premedical student home for the summer. I grew up in Castro Valley but attended the College Preparatory School in Oakland for high school. I have experience tutoring students of all ages and levels. I believe a student best learns with a specified approach and method designed according to the needs of the individual student. I tutor with patience, enthusiasm, and kind encouragement while aiming to develop the student's comprehension, rationalization, and other academic skills and help the student gain confidence in his/her abilities. I have been tutoring since I was 12 years old, volunteering at a local library. I started tutoring elementary school and middle school students privately when I was 14, a freshman in high school. I tutor in English, Math, Science, History, French, SAT/ACT prep, and organizational skills. I also help in practice for participation in class discussions (ex: history, english, french).
