Experienced Comouter Science and Math Teacher

Algebra, Computer Science, Geometry, Math K-8, Statistics

Give your child a step up for fall! I currently work full time teaching math and computer science at a grade 6-12 private school. I have 2 years of full time teaching experience, as well as over 7 years of part-time tutoring experience. I possess a BS in Computer Science (with a focus on game design), along with an Education minor from UC Santa Cruz, and before becoming a teacher briefly worked professionally as a software engineer. For math, I am comfortable teaching any material up through (but not including) Calculus, and for computer science I teach any subjects except html/CSS. I enjoy reading about CS Education research and make sure to stay up-to-date on the most effective teaching tools and methods. I typically drive to students' homes to meet them, although I am happy to meet for tutoring in libraries, cafes, or any other public workable space. My rate is $60/hour for in-home tutoring, or $50/hour for remote instruction (via Hangouts/other tools). Remote instruction works better for computer science than math, and if you want this option I can give you a pdf detailing how it would work. I am willing to negotiate on rates for low income families, especially those located near El Cerrito/Richmond. I screen my calls to avoid robocalls, so I am most easily reached via email or text; feel free to reach out with any questions!
