"Elementary/Middle School Teacher Available to Tutor"
Hi! I am experienced teacher and tutor on the peninsula. I have tutored and/or taught students from all grade levels from Kindergarten through eighth grade! Right now I am teaching part time so that I can spend more time with my own children. This allows me to be a bit more flexible with my tutoring availability.
When I was in college, one of the many jobs I had was tutoring. I worked with my peers in classes that they struggled in, and I also worked with some middle school students. Mo... ... More

Renee helped me prepare for a chemistry test in one day and explained concepts really well. She will explain it in different ways until it's understood. She also taught me tricks to avoid memorizing.

Carlo was wonderful! Not only did he follow up with me a week after he helped me but he also gave me feedback after my lesson! I learned so much from him on how to use Excel that I was able to figure out how to use it for an urgent project!
I recommend him for any problems you are having with Excel!

"Harvard doctoral, 10 yrs. middle/high school teacher"
I've been using a Mac since 1989! I had the original onepiece "fishbowl" design. I've had a Mac ever since and, as do many Mac enthusiasts/nerds, I consider my Mac a part of the family! Too many people use the Mac for years without learning just a few simple tricks that can save you lots of time. The one I'll give away right here is keyboard shortcuts  you can automate the commands you do over and over, saving you lots of time, and reducing carpal tunnel no less! ... More

I highly recommend Vladimir as a Math tutor because of his ability to slow down and make it clear what is being covered in class. He will take you to the next letter grade and then help you to truly understand what you are learning. He has a methodical math approach and a vast knowledge of mathematics that makes him a valuable resource. I have spent numerous hours working with him to get an A in calculus, he has helped me learn everything and unlike most students feel I can use what I'm learning better and more effectively. I don't recommend cramming for math test but if you work with him regularly he will help you truly understand the subject you are struggling in. If Its worth knowing its worth knowing well, he can help you find your mistakes and then has experience in correcting them so you don't make them on test. He's also a very nice man, who is very level headed and if you just cant get it will keep working until he feels he has made it clear to you, a valuable tool in learning something most teacher never do in class or in there offices hours. All in all I recommend him to any student at any level trying to get a better grade, while actually learning more, and even becoming interested in something many call a boring subject.

"Math, Statistics, SAT~ACT~SSAT Tutor  very patient and effective"
Hello! I have been a professional tutor since 2003, specializing in math (prealgebra through AP calculus), AP statistics, and standardized test preparation. I am very effective in helping students to not just get a better grade, but to really understand the subject matter and the reasons why things work the way they do. I do this in a way that is positive, supportive, and also fun. I explain difficult math and science concepts in simple English, and continue working with students until they ... ... More
