James Curry (All Levels)
I have an MA in Mathematics, and I can tutor at all levels. More specifically, I often tutor Calculus, Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, Real Analysis, and Probability and Statistics. I also have often tutored High school students. I I have more than 10 years experience teaching and tutoring. If you write to me I will write back or call back promptly. I like to not just help students out of the pit they are in, but to teach them to understand for themselves, so that they can do well without my help ultimately.

Jesse Sherer - Math and Physics
(650) 817-5039
I have a Bachelors in Physics from UC Santa Cruz, and have received a pretty extensive background in Math because of it. I was a teaching assistant in grad school at Stanford and tutored in Physics there. I can tutor all levels in Physics and most, if not all, Math through upper division undergraduate. I've tutored Math from pre-Algebra to Calculus as a matter of course and could deal with any level student. I love higher level subjects but will do my utmost to bring any level down to earth for people for whom Math is a bit of a burden. I have experience with standardized test prep, eg. GRE, SAT, AP, etc. I also have experience in numerical methods for computational work as well.
