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 12, 16, 21ABCD, 22A, 108, 127ABC, 150ABC, 185A
Courses taken:TAed: MAT 21ABCD, 108, 127ABC. Taught: MAT 21D, 22A, 108
Experience:I am a 5th PhD student and I have tutored calculus for over 5 years. So I know the type of the questions that usually shows up in exams. A lot of students find math overwhelming because they lose track in the ocean of concepts. I am here to tell you what you should look for in an exam and identify all concepts that appears in a question. In my experience, if you can pick the right tool to attack a problem, its solution is usually quite short. I can provide additional practice problems to help you achieve that.
Additional:Please text/email to ask for details and discount for new students. I prefer in-person tutoring and I can tutor anywhere in Davis.

Experience:In the same way that Steve Kerr makes a better basketball coach than Michael Jordan, the best math teachers are not always the most genius and innately talented, but rather the most devoted and hardworking. Aside from spending many hours mastering the mathematics and physics curriculums myself, I have – more importantly – spent even more hours mastering the techniques to teach them in a one-on-one setting. I have than 1000 hours of previous tutoring experience in middle, high school, and college education. I am most experienced in Pre-Calculus, the Calculus sequence, and the introductory Physics sequences; I have done everything from simply review practice problems for AP exams to devise weeks worth of lessons to help a student prepare for the upcoming year. A one-on-one setting is most conducive for what I find to be the most effective way to teach – asking questions. I pick from a wide variety of practice and homework problems and ask students to walk me through solving them; stopping them to correct and fill in gaps in understanding. This tactic both pushes the student to master the material to a level where they should be able to teach it themselves and simultaneously exposes holes in the student's knowledge. However, this doesn't work for every student! I recognize that all students are different and I hope to work with you to find the most effective plan of action.
Additional:Feel free to email, call, or text me with any questions or to set up an introductory session!
Huh, SharonGradsharonhuhtutoring@gmail.comVariable (see website below)
Offered:College level: 21ABC, 22A, 108 High school level: precalculus, AP calculus
Experience:Tutoring experience: over 4 years. TA experience: 2 years. Associate Instructor (AI) experience: 2 summer classes (16A, 21B). See website for more details.
Offered:Calculus, Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, Introduction to Proofs, Analysis, Algebra, Topology, Numerical Analysis, and most other upper division mathematics.
Experience:I am currently a UC Davis PhD student in Applied Mathematics, and have 10+ years of private tutoring experience (K-12 and college) and 4+ years of university-level tutoring center experience. Throughout all of my time as a private tutor, tutoring center tutor, and teaching assistant, I have learned that one-on-one tutoring is by far the most conducive to learning. In a group setting, it is easy to fall behind the crowd or convince oneself that they are comfortable with the material, but individualized learning is the key to ensuring that students leave no cracks of knowledge unfilled. Doing mathematics can be incredibly rewarding, and I want to ensure that every student is able to see the beauty of it and feel the satisfying feeling of completing their homework and acing their exams.
Additional:I also tutor any level of K-12 mathematics and standardized tests such as the SAT and GRE. Feel free to e-mail or text me if you have any further questions!
Neel, NeetalGrad4.009493729285nneel@ucdavis.edu40-60
Offered:MAT 16ABC, MAT 17ABC, MAT 21ABCD, MAT 127AB, MAT 150AB, MAT 108, MAT 141, MAT 147, 185AB, high school algebra, and PHY 9AB.
Available:2022-23 Academic Year
Courses taken:MAT 21ABCD, MAT 22AB, MAT 108, 150ABC, MAT 127ABC, MAT 141, MAT 147, MAT 185AB
Experience:I have been tutoring for 4 years in Calculus, and upper division of Mathematics. I have a bachelors in Math and Physics and a Masters in Mathematics. I have been a TA for numerous courses and have been an AI for 16, 21 series along with MAT 150A, 127A. I have seen that students often find it super difficult in coping up with the pace of the quarter system. I’m here to provide you with a little push so that the C or an F (merely due to the frustration of lagging behind) can be turned into an A or an A- with a little help. I’m here to help you understand concepts, guide through lots of problems and making sure that you understand the material. Often times learning 1-1 or in a small group helps take away the intimidation of asking questions.
Additional:Willing to tutor jr.high and high school students. Undergrad of any level is most welcome. Understand the concepts, solve lots of problems and getting that A is the goal.
Prue, Paul(916)$45/hr (negotiable)

Experience:About 5 years tutoring experience; college math instructor for 8 years at UC Davis, SCC, CSUS: Calculus (various flavors), Precalculus, Algebra, Statistics. Taught ESL at universities in China for 2 years. Students I tutor appreciate my patience and thoroughness, while I enjoy helping them build confidence as independent learners.
Additional:Available in Davis and Sacramento, to tutor students in junior high, high school, or college mathematics. Contact by e-mail, phone, messenger pigeon... let's get to work!

Courses taken:MAT 21ABCD, 22AB, 67, 127ABC, 150ABC, 145, 147, 115A
Experience:I am a PhD student 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. Discounts available for new students and upper division classes. Email, call, or text!
