Hello! I'm Lena. I am a Berkeley native (and BHS alum), currently living in Oakland. I offer tutoring in general Sciences (including AP Chemistry & AP Biology), Math up to Pre-Calculus, Latin, Writing (including college essays), and Study Skills/ Executive Functioning, in the Oakland/Berkeley area.

I hold my B.S. in Environmental Toxicology and Minor in Latin from UC Davis, and have worked both as a classroom science teacher and as an environmental consultant. I began tutoring in the Bay Area 8+ years ago, and found that I absolutely love it! I am delighted to continue working with so many wonderful families in this community. I have experience working with students with ADHD, dyslexia, and slow processing.

No matter what subject I am tutoring, I incorporate executive functioning skills such as note-taking, time management, textbook literacy, and self-advocacy.

Please email me at lenachervin [at] gmail.com for more information. I offer flexible rates, and can provide references upon request.
