C A Schiffman, Ben(469)$50-75 (negotiable)
Offered:All levels of math and college prep -- middle/high school math, English and math for college exam prep, undergrad math courses, and (some) graduate math topics.
Experience:I have over a decade of teaching, TAing, and tutoring experience, covering all ranges of students and topics of math or college prep. I enjoy working with students of all skill levels, and have experience with those working through learning disabilities and other significant challenges. I understand that many students not only struggle with math, but find it hard, unpleasant, and/or scary. I try to help make it make sense, as well as help students develop good study habits and learn to really understand the concepts as well as the calculations and problem solving.
Additional:I received my PhD in Math from UC Davis in 2020, and spent the following year teaching calculus and other courses. I am no longer teaching, but love helping students learn and understand mathematical concepts. If you are struggling, or just want to improve your understanding and scores, reach out to me (469-712-MATH) and let's work together!
Offered:MAT 17ABC, 21ABCD, 22AB, 108, 127ABC and other college math classes
Courses taken:TAed for MAT 17ABC, 21ABCD, 22AB, 108, 127ABC
Experience:I am a 5th-year-PhD candidate in the math department, and have TAed or taught for more than 20 classes. I started tutored for many years and I am very familiarised with the class materials, especially with the Calculus Series. My philosophy in learning math is that practice makes perfect. I can provide vast amount of exercises and examples oriented to the syllabus and exams, and I believe students can learn the concepts by repetitive practice on problems. I can also offer review sessions for midterms/final.
Additional:Can reach me by emails, but I responds faster to text messages.

Experience:I have seven years of private tutoring experience both virtual and in person. I have worked long term with all of my students and have had excellent success in determining individualized learning plans which are tailored to meeting their specific academic goals. My teaching approach is to emphasize understanding so as to uncover the root of the misconceptions or sources of misunderstanding.

Experience:I have tutored, TA ed and instructed Calculus classes and upper division classes for 5 years. I have tutored high school Mathematics and Physics. My math philosophy is - Practice makes it Perfect and -if you don’t have the basics right, no worries takes a little time to learn them but need to learn them first before getting on to the real battle. Speaking from experience, quarter math is really fast and the difficulty of the topics grow exponentially. No time is bad to start but need to have the mentality that you’ll fight till the end. To get an A you need to start early otherwise it’s really difficult to get an A if you’re not on top of things throughout the quarter. Start early, don’t get frustrated take the help and get the A.
Additional:Prefer contact by email. Any level of math is okay.

Offered:High school algebra, trigonometry, pre-calculus, AP Calculus AB/BC; College calculus, linear algebra, probability theory, and introduction to mathematical logic.
Experience:Seeing the subject matter from my students’ perspective is what I am good at: I like to see the patterns in my students’ difficulties, and actually use those difficulties to help my students excel. My form of tutelage is personalized to each of my students because I know that teaching should be more than just ‘how to do things correctly.’ In this way, I have helped my students go from their current understanding, to comprehending the material and thriving in their classes. Cumulatively, I have 10+ years of experience in tutoring high school math; along with being a tutor, teaching assistant, and lead teaching assistant at UC Davis and other universities.
Additional:Please contact me via email, and I’ll reply to you as soon as possible! I’m happy to discuss anything you need to be comfortable, without obligating you to my services.

I also want to thank you for helping prove his math teacher wrong about [Student’s name]!” “Alexander was able to explain concepts in a digestible manner to [Student’s name]. [Student’s name] saw a great improvement in her test scores. She is also a lot more enthusiastic about her Math work. “ From Students: “I can’t believe I’m saying this … but you’ve made math fun” “I put in a request

Courses taken:MAT 21ABCD, 22AB, 67, 127ABC, 150ABC, 145, 147, 115A
Experience:I am a PhD candidate in the mathematics department, holding master's degrees math and physics and bachelor’s degrees in physics and music. Math is a frustrating experience when none of the material seems to fit together, so I want to help you find the forest through the trees. My philosophy is to approach your tutoring sessions by filling in background knowledge, identifying current misconceptions, and then creating a lesson style that resonates with how you learn. For many students, this means leading you on a path through which you can discover WHY the math you're doing makes sense, making you prepared to tackle problems like those we practice and even others that seem alien at first.
Additional:I tutor any college math or physics, and I also have a lot of experience tutoring middle and high school students. I've been tutoring math and physics courses at UC Davis for five years, and I've TAed many upper division math courses. My research is about geometry in higher dimensions! Discounts available for new students and upper division classes. Please email!
