I have been helping others learn math for two years now, and I enjoy watching it click for others just as much as I enjoyed it when math first began to make sense to me. From experience, I know that mathematics can be very easy, or seemingly impossible to learn depending on how the information and concepts are presented. Whether you need help with fractions, factoring polynomials, trigonometric identities, solving triple integrals or anything in between, I can break everything down to first principles, and help you attain that deep understanding of the concepts that will get you that A on your next test.

About Colin
Hello there! My name is Colin and I am a senior biomedical engineering major and undergraduate researcher at UC Berkeley. Additionally, I have been tutoring math, science, and essay writing on college campuses and online since 2014. Math and science are a significant part of my daily life, which is fortunate for me as I am very passionate about both.

As a tutor, my goal is not to impress you with how much I know. Rather, my goal is to impress you by showing you how easily math and science concepts can come to you when you are presented the material the way *you* need to see and hear it. It's my guarantee to you that I will always strive to communicate the concepts effectively, listen to your questions with patience, and work with your unique way of learning to help you truly understand the material. This takes time, and it takes work
, but the rewards that come from it - high test scores, a strong GPA, and deep satisfaction of really mastering math and science concepts - are worth it many times over.

*Read a little further if you would like to know about my personal story on my journey to becoming a math and science tutor*

Admittedly, I didn't discover my passion for math and science until years after high school. In fact, I was seemingly terrible at both. This, I later found, was mainly due to poor communication and poor presentation of the concepts from my high school teachers. Almost eight years later, a genuine curiosity induced me to seek out YouTube videos on various math and science topics, and upon finding the right videos, where the material was presented effectively, it was actually fun and very satisfying to learn. In fact, I found that the concepts came rather easily to me. It was a night and day difference from my high school experience.

At this point, it was a glaring reality to me that people simply do not learn effectively when they aren't being presented the material in a very clear and interesting manner (for some strange reason, this is especially a problem with physics teachers/professors). For example, understanding *why* acceleration has units of meters per second squared makes those units much easier to memorize than simply knowing "it just does." Knowing *why* the x-coordinate of the vertex of a parabola is -b/2a, and why it's useful to even know how to find the vertex, makes it worlds easier to memorize than being told "it just is." Very few people in the world can learn effectively just by hearing dry, seemingly random information. On the contrary, people tend to learn and remember information they deem valuable. Since this discovery, it has been a goal of mine to help others learn and enjoy math and science the same way I do. I accomplish this by being a clear communicator, and teaching math and science concepts with excitement and demonstrating how this knowledge is valuable.

A drive to teach others is not the only good thing to come from my latent discovery of my passion for STEM. After teaching myself algebra through YouTube videos and various books, I enrolled in community college and placed in trigonometry. After completing my general education with a 4.0, I transferred to UC Berkeley into the biomedical engineering program and the rest, as they say, is history. Amazing things can happen when you are able to learn effectively!

Ahh! One of my favorite subjects: Mathematics. I graduated from high school with AP Calculus under my belt. Show me your homework or specific subjects in Math that you are struggling with and I will show you the way.

About Daniel
I have a Bachelors degree in Electronics Engineering Technology. I currently run the Computer Lab at an elementary school in Salt Lake City, Utah. I have been running the Computer Lab since the 2013/2014 school year. In the Computer Lab I have been teaching Elementary Math and Typing and Kindergarten through Fifth Grade.

Daniel Reavis is a really good teacher. He corrected my math homework to help me get it correct and so I could do it correctly myself. When I got the correct answers to the problems at school, most of them were correct but occasionally I got some wrong. Then again, I went to Challenger School and they were teaching me things that he probably hadn't learned when he was at school.

As a math major in college and six years experience as a math tutor, I've discovered the secrets to helping students succeed. Whether you're getting ready to take the SAT or you're struggling through Geometry, I've got you've covered. I've worked with all levels of understanding and development, and like to create an environment where the student can feel free to ask questions and use real world examples. Math can truly be fun when you understand it!

About Maggie
I graduated from Furman University in May of 2016, with a major in Computing and Applied Mathematics. I tutored at high schools all throughout my college years, as well as being hired by the college to teach my peers in lower math classes. Following graduation, I became a home school teacher for a few families in the Bradenton area, with children ranging from elementary all the way up to high school. Although I am especially experienced in math, I have taught in all common core subjects. I love working one on one with kids-- there is a real opportunity for them to ask questions and integrate learning with whatever method works best for them and keeps them engaged.

I am now currently enrolled in my second year at dental school in Bradenton, Florida, and have found a great way to integrate my mathematical education. I love that I am st
ill able to tutor and keep the teaching passion of mine alive while I attend school.

I love to work with math students of all ages, ranging anywhere from early elementary to collegiate level. Although I teach Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 most commonly, there are few levels of math I am uncomfortable with. I love to help students make math applicable-- starting with simple problems and working up to multi-step. Through questions and examples, we can create a formula that works best for you. Every student's learning style is slightly different and I have found fun ways to accommodate this. I want to instill confidence and knowledge in my students! I know we can do it!

Best tutor I've had so far. I've tried a lot because math never makes sense to me, but with Maggie I pulled my grade up from a D- to a B which none of the others could do. She was actually one of the least expensive ones I tried and was definitely worth the price. She was very patient and had really good explanations. She really helped me catch up from being so behind. Plus, I normally hate asking questions but she makes it pretty comfortable so I definitely recommend her.

I LOVE teaching math, and my passion shows. I especially enjoy teaching students to explore math through inquiry and hands-on exploration. Those moments when my students reach deep understanding and can finally apply it to solving difficult problems motivate me every day!

Rest assured, also, that my teaching methods for math are always based on recent research on how the human brain learns. In order to earn my teaching certification, I needed to pass a rigorous MTEL exam through Massachusetts on PreK-8 math concepts, as well as take multiple courses in elementary and middle school math methods aligned to the Common Core standards, including "Core Math: Numbers and Operations, Function, Geometry and Algebra" and "Math Methods in the Elementary School." I received a 780 on my math SAT when I took it in high school. Though most of my courses have focused on teaching younger students, I have mastery over high school curriculum, as well, and have been able to apply the central theories of

As a recently licensed special education teacher, I am familiar with all of the standards and skills expected of students today and the most effective strategies for meetings these expectations. Over the past few years, I have worked as a paraprofessional and student teacher in a middle school, where I taught group and one-on-one lessons in all major subjects, run a homework help group at a daycare for K-5 students, and taught an SAT math and college application class for high schoolers. I also have prior experience completing practicums in elementary, preschool, and ESL classrooms. My
