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!

Offered:Calculus, Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, Introduction to Proofs, Analysis, Algebra, Topology, Numerical Analysis, and most other upper division mathematics.
Available:Ongoing
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!

Ragone, MichaelGrad6232233670mjragone@ucdavis.edu$40-$60
Offered:Calculus, Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, Introduction to Proofs, Analysis, Algebra, Topology, and most other upper division mathematics.
Available:Ongoing
Experience:I am a math PhD student. My bachelors was in electrical engineering, and I worked in a computational neuroscience for about 2 years. I've been tutoring for almost 10 years, with students ages ranging from 6 to 44. Mostly calculus and high school algebra, but also a scattering of upper division math (e.g. proofs, linear algebra, differential equations, analysis, algebra, topology) and some intro physics and computer science courses. I also have extensive tutoring experience for the SAT, GRE, and ACT (~30 total students tutored). My entire goal is to help you really GET the material, not just go through the motions. Math can be difficult, and I had to struggle to gain the understanding I have now. I customize each and every tutoring session to your needs and interests, helping you develop missing fundamentals, discover powerful ways of thinking about math, and even see links to your own field of study.
Additional:Happy to tutor any and all grade levels, and I have quite a bit of experience with students with learning disabilities. Tutoring via Zoom is an option. Please text, email, or call me if you have any questions!
Rubin, ShanonGrad4.009546350396srubin@ucdavis.edu$30-$60
Offered:All college math and physics (mostly MAT 16, MAT 17, MAT 21, PHY 9, PHY 7), and middle/high school math and physics at all levels.
Available:Ongoing
Courses taken:MAT 21ABCD, 22AB, 67, 127ABC, 150ABC, 145, 147, 115A
Experience:I am a PhD student in the mathematics department, holding a masters degree in physics and bachelors 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 (including all calculus, linear algebra, and intro 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!
