Vir is a gifted teacher. He has taught my son guitar for more than a year. He meets my son where ever he's at in his practice, attention and interests with calm, skilled focus and intention . Vir's background as performing musician infuses his teaching with an enthusiasm and creativity of practicing his teaching. We are truly grateful for Vir.

Vir is beyond your typical vocal coach. He was a huge help on things like pitch accuracy and phrasing, but more than anything, his focus on getting me to tap into and harness my inner power has already paid huge dividends in my recordings and performances. Further, Vir is an amazing person to know and his home-studio in Berkeley is magnificent!

About Colin S.

Albany, CA

View Full Profile

I am a bioengineer and researcher so biology is the science I engage in every day. Sure biology can be challenging with mountains of new vocabulary words and it's propensity for delving deep into the minutiae of biological processes, but it is all so worth it - this is the study of life! Working with me, you will learn the best and most efficient way for memorizing and understanding all of the many intricacies of biology.

About Colin
Hello there! My name is Colin, and I have five years of experience tutoring math and science. I am a PhD student in the UC Berkeley-UC San Fransisco joint bioengineering program. My strong background in STEM qualifies me to tutor math and science up through lower-division college courses. Aside from my academic qualifications, I believe that it is my genuine passion for math and science that makes me an effective tutor for students of all backgrounds.

As a tutor, my goal is not to impress students with how much I know. Rather, my goal is to show my students how easily math and science concepts can come to them when they are presented the material in a straightforward way. The late physicist, Richard Feynman, posited that the ability to explain complicated ideas in a simple manner is the true mark of understanding. I agree with this a
ssertion, and I make it my goal each tutoring session to explain even the most complex phenomena in a simple way, so that my student will come away from the lesson invariably understanding it. Additionally, I emphasize a strong understanding of the fundamentals, because both math and science are heavily inductive disciplines; many of the theorems and laws are founded on other, more fundamental principles. I have personally experienced the discouragement of trying to learn material that is beyond my preparedness level, and so I can empathize with students who are in that boat. Fortunately, I have learned that the remedy is always a return to, and a strengthening of the basics. That is the approach I take with students who find themselves struggling in a course.

My online teaching platform is a “black board” drawing program that my students can follow along with as I explain concepts and solve problems. I simply share my screen with them during the session, and at the end, I take a screenshot of the notes and email it to my students for their reference. I hope this brief explanation of my qualifications and teaching style has provided a clear image of what you can expect from me as your tutor. I am eager to hear from you and help you succeed in your academic goals!

What does DNA stand for? National Dyslexics Association.

About Brandon
Ever since I started my studies in the United States, 5 years ago, I have been captivated by the educational system. Initially, I tutored high school students as a tool to better practice my communication skills with the English language. I continued this tutoring path by aiding other college students on a 1-to-1 basis and more recently as part of an online experience at Slader.com. I wish to continue this path until I finally graduate in order to apply as a Graduate Student Instructor at my school of choice. Math is my biggest passion, ever since I discovered its full depth. While many ask themselves "how will this equation be useful in my life?" I always ask myself "how can I make this equation meaningful in my life." I am a mathematics major and have enjoyed every single math class I have ever taken.

I was stuck in a rut and unsure about how to improve my chess game. After a few lesson with Matt I feel a lot better about where I am at, and have been steadily improving over the last few weeks. Matt was able to figuring out why I was stuck, and what I needed to work on to get my chess abilities to the next level. Would highly recommend him for anyone who is looking to improve their game!

Dr George Ilodi is an astute instructor, with impeccable character and overwhelming approach in delivering his lectures. Dexterity and holistic reviews of courses taught during the semester is second to none. His class was fantastic and the exams were well made and portioned appropriately. Although his can be funny and strict, he is also vastly knowledgeable, and willing to help students. The class material splendid and made the class enjoyable overall. I would strongly recommend him to any other student.”

Biology is about life and so I do my best to make it come alive!

During a lesson you might find that we use music or poetry or even painting to learn about a concept. You might discover that we don't just watch a video, we make one. And you might observe that, when we are talking about a concept, we take our conversation wherever it needs to go so that you can see how it fits in the bigger picture of biology and the sciences.

I think it's important that students express their learning in the ways that work best for them. So I try to find ways to encourage that and this means you can expect to discuss with you the question of how you are learning. And I want students to know that they are succeeding, so you and I will work together to come up with some good ways to help you see that and celebrate it.

We do focus on the details of the science, but I will help you to put in practice some techniques that will give you the confidence and the skills to ace your class at school or ...

About Hank
Interesting.

That is the word around which I build my tutoring.

I want my students to enjoy learning about science. I want them to see and understand why it's useful, how knowing it can help them, and how it can be fun.

To get there, I focus on three things:

First, I try hard to make sure that every student does not lose sight of the overall connection between the very specific, sometimes technical details she is learning and the overarching point of the science. That helps keep the subject interesting.

Second, I work to help the student master the quantitative aspects of science. High school teachers generally emphasize that kind of calculation to a pretty significant degree and, besides, nervousness over the math often gets in the way of enjoying the learning and a better grade!

Third, I strive to develop a strong working relati
onship with the student so that I get a better understanding of the ways that she or he best learn. I use videos, texts and written practice materials, sure, but I also use comics, music, drawing, outdoor activities, and even lab-style learning activities.

This variety helps to assure that a student has some fun while learning and to recognize that the sciences are exciting. If a student is encouraged to believe that, then she or he might not only improve their grade in science class. The student might just become open to some new dreams and, of course, gain alot more confidence.

I make myself available to email or text consultation with a student, with the parent's permission, outside of the regularly scheduled in-person meeting and I do not charge for that extra help.

Thanks for considering me!

I teach Biology and Advanced Biology on a regular basis. However, I have taught Chemistry, Botany and Zoology. I feel I specialize at making large things simple.

About Ralph
I teach Advanced Biology and Biology on a regular basis. I know what it feels like to struggle or need some help with some classes. I myself struggled with some classes in High school and college and because of this, I know the difference a teacher can make. I also have worked with the state on curriculum development.

I pride myself on staying current with information because the best teachers are always learning. This keeps students up to date on what they need to know for the future. My wife is a medical doctor and I also have many students that are in that pathway.

Working in public schools has allowed me to teach many different students on many different pathways. Thank you for your time and I would love to help you out with what you need.
