Science Tutoring

I hired a few honor chemistry and math tutors before for my daughter and she didn’t notice any difference until she works with Miguel. She said after working with Miguel, she realized maybe the other tutors did not know their subject very well. Miguel makes things easier to understand and is very knowledgeable. Her grades have also improved tremendously within a couple of months with Miguel.

I found my tutoring sessions very helpful. Miguel was able to help me with all the problems and concepts I brought in, as well as answering any questions I had. I feel better prepared for the SAT than I did before.

The tutoring session was more than excellent. He is such a wonderful tutor. I could see how much he enjoys teaching and making sure you understand the concept. He is very responsible, professional and has an outstanding work ethic. Will definitely schedule him for future sessions. The subject i needed help with, was pre calculus, and after the session, I feel more confident. Thank you!!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My in-person rate increases the further I need to travel from Albany CA ($70 to $200 an hour). My rate is $60/hour for online tutoring via zoom, skype, or google hangouts. Discounts available for recurring sessions. If you live or meet me near Albany CA my rate will be $70/hour.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I would like get as much background information about the student/tutee that I will be supporting during our session. Examples of background information include subject (such as calculus, chemistry, physics, ect.), topic (adding fractions, finding the derivative, electronic configurations, ect.), learning differences that the student may have or areas in which the student struggles, student's strengths and weaknesses. If the student can explain this to me even better!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am currently a math and science teacher working at a private school in Albany, CA where I have worked for 7 years and have 13 years of experience tutoring at community colleges, I also supervised math tutors at UC Berkeley Academic Service Centers, briefly worked at Mathnasium of Piedmont, and worked for the nonprofit organization Making Waves Education Program in Richmond, CA. I have tutored and taught students of all age groups but I have worked the most with high school and college students. I have also been tutoring online for 1.5 years.
