Physics Graduate Student, UCB
I offer tutoring services in mathematics (including statistics), physics, and French, at the undergraduate/masters level, high-school, or below. I can also tutor some areas of computer science (programming in Python, algorithms).I have over six years of experience tutoring these subjects privately to undergrads/masters and high school students from a wide variety of academic backgrounds. I am currently a graduate student instructor at Berkeley.Beyond school coursework and standardized tests (SAT, GRE, etc), I prepare students for math and physics Olympiads. I have participated in the International Math Olympiad and USA Physics Olympiad.

Postdoc
Ph.D. in Physics and B.A. in Physics and Applied Math— all degrees are from U.C. Berkeley
I have over 16 years of tutoring experience and 4 years of GSI teaching experience. I received the Outstanding GSI award in my first year of GSI. I can tutor any undergraduate physics/math requirements for both majors and non-majors, high/middle school physics/math including AP classes, as well as SAT and GRE physics/math test preparation.

Physics PhD Candidate, UC Berkeley, MS Mathematics, Yale University 2020, BS Physics (Intensive with Distinction), Yale University 2020, BS Mathematics (Intensive with Distinction), Yale University 2020 
I have over three years of experience teaching physics at the university level as a GSI at Berkeley. I have outstanding GSI reviews as a graduate student and have GSI'ed Physics 7B, 8B and 77. I am qualified to tutor all undergraduate physics courses, from intro courses to upper division courses, and have worked with several students enrolled in 5, 7, and 8 series courses with great success. I am also trained to help with standardized tests including the SAT, ACT, GRE, and physics GRE, and have worked with students on their standardized tests.

ebina@berkeley.edu
Physics Graduate Student, UCB / BA in Physics and Math, Cornell University
I have three years of experience in teaching physics and math, with experience in both TA/GSI positions for upper- and lower-level undergraduate courses, and private tutoring at the undergraduate and high school level. I can tutor most undergraduate physics courses and any introductory undergraduate math course (calculus, linear algebra, etc.). I'm also available to tutor physics and math at the high school level and below, including AP classes and SAT/ACT. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you are interested!

adamfrim@berkeley.edu
Physics PhD Student, UC Berkeley; MA in Physics and BA in Physics & Math, Harvard (2018)
I have successfully taught and tutored going back over a decade. I have been the GSI specifically for Physics 5A, 5B, 7B, and 89 at Berkeley, but have a broad background in theoretical physics and mathematics and would be happy to tutor any physics subject at any level (high school, undergraduate, and graduate), and any math subject at the high school or undergraduate level. I am also happy to tutor quantitative aspects of the SAT, ACT, GRE, and Physics GRE. Please reach out if you are interested!

Physics PhD Student, UCB; BA in Physics and BS in Math, UIUC
I have taught, tutored, and mentored undergraduate students and high school students for many years. I am qualified to tutor for all undergraduate physics courses and many undergraduate math courses. I can also tutor for the SAT, ACT, GRE, Physics GRE, and any high school physics and math.

Eleanor Hall

nellhall@berkeley.edu

Physics PhD Student, UC Berkeley; BS in Physics, MIT
I offer tutoring for most undergraduate physics courses, particularly the introductory 5, 7, and 8 series. I have been a GSI for the 7 and 8 series as well as upper division courses and have more than a decade of experience teaching and tutoring in math and physics.

Andrea Herman

amherman@berkeley.edu
PhD Student in Physics at Berkeley; MA in Physics, Berkeley; BS in Physics and Literature, MIT
I have 10+ years of experience tutoring physics and math at college and high school levels. At Berkeley I have been a GSI for 8A, 8B and the MCB/Biophysics quantitative biology bootcamp. I can tutor any intro physics course or any standardized test prep - GRE, SAT, ACT. High school level tutoring is also an option. I like to focus on giving my students a good intuition for the material so they can handle unfamiliar problems on exams and homeworks. Sessions are generally a mix of talking through material together and testing out strategies for practice problems, but every student is different. Please reach out if you think we might be a fit!

PhD in Materials Science and Eng., UCLA
B.A. in Physics & B.S. in Materials Science and Eng, UC Berkeley
I have several years of experience tutoring Physics, Math and Chemistry 1-on-1 or in a group. I have also been GSI/TA for undergraduate classes in MSE and Chemistry. I can tutor lower division Physics (8 and 7 series) and Math

Nam Nguyen

honamnguyen@berkeley.edu
Throughout my degrees, I've been tutoring introductory physics for college students from a wide range of majors. As a GSI for 8A/B, I also work closely with students on a weekly basis which allows me to identify common questions and helpful tips for learning the subject. So don't hesitate to contact me, I'm happy to help students at any level!

Leslie Taylor
lptaylor29@berkeley.edu
BA in Physics from UC Berkeley (2015), Physics PhD and MA from UW Madison (2021)
Before graduating from Berkeley in 2015 I struggled with all my intro physics classes! I learned the hard way how to deal with Berkeley's rigourous workload and now I want to share the knowledge. If you have ever been so lost that you don't even know what questions to ask I am the tutor for you! I tutor all introductory physics classes (5, 7, and 8 series). See my website for more information.

kwang98@berkeley.edu
Physics Graduate Student, UCB / MSc in Mathematical and Theoretical Physics, Oxford / BS in Physics, Stanford
I offer tutoring for mathematics, physics, and computer science at the undergraduate level and below. At Stanford, I participated in private tutoring for fellow undergraduates in math and physics. I have also tutored STEM courses for students below the undergraduate level. My background is primarily in math and physics, but I have extensive experience in computer science as well through Stanford coursework and computational physics research. I am currently a graduate student instructor at Berkeley. In my tutoring, I focus on developing students’ problem-solving skills through active learning as opposed to rote memorization.
