Hello Berkeley Parents!

My name is Maggie Simpson and I own GoldenTutors, a company that matches students with excellent tutors from top universities. We are musicians, athletes, poets, and scholars, who have individually achieved at the highest level, and we now guide students towards their own success. We believe in a holistic approach that builds a foundation of knowledge, time management, and organizational skills.

I have been tutoring for 10 years, specializing in writing, calculus, and statistics for the UC Berkeley Athletics Learning Center from 2009-2014. I graduated from UC Berkeley in 2014 and work with students of all ages in test prep, academic studies, and college admissions. My clients have improved their scores an average of 150 points on the SAT and 4 points on the ACT. I also tutor GRE, GMAT, ISEE, SSAT, and AP Tests.

Brett, a former learning specialist for an education company, graduated from Princeton University in 2016 and specializes in SAT, college essays, and study skills. Brett is now a graduate student at UC Berkeley School of Journalism.
